Hi everyone,

Since my last post, I’m sure you’ve been eagerly anticipating your invitation to join empowr. I am excited to announce that the Success Coaches have been exploring the site for the last couple of weeks and are very happy with the changes we have made from FanBox.

Now, it’s time for everyone else to make the transition from FanBox to empowr, beginning with Red Star Power Users.

For those of you that are Red Star Power Users, the next time you load your homepage, you’ll see a pop-up window that enables you to move your content, settings, balance and other information automatically over to empowr.

empowr Open To Red Star Power Users

Everyone else: I will let you know when empowr opens up to new Power Levels -- and as soon as the pop-up window appears for you, it will be your turn. As soon as the Red Star Power Users get a chance to use empowr.com, report any bugs and tell us that everything is working as they expect, the next level of Power Users will be allowed in. I expect this process to happen very quickly.

 

$20 Bounty for Bug Reports

Once you begin using empowr, it is quite likely that you could encounter some bugs during the first several weeks.

If you encounter any bugs, please report them directly to me in the following manner:

1) Find the bug and document it as best as possible just like I explained in my last post.

2) Send me a message on empowr titled “Bug Report,” reporting this bug

    You can find me here

    Please include:

a.       Your name and the email address you used to sign up.

b.      The details of the bug and the URL of the page it is happening on

c.       What you expect to happen when you are performing this action

d.      Screenshots of the bug. You can download a free screenshot app from http://prntscr.com which will let you create screenshots with web links

The first person who reports a bug will be compensated $20 once the team here verify and resolve the issue. 

Your help in this regard will greatly help the empowr team in giving you the best possible experience moving forward!

 

Platform Updates

You may have already viewed the videos on the empowr homepage and noticed some changes to how empowr works differently from FanBox.

Advertising

All citizens will still have the ability to utilize Ad Credits to accelerate the growth of their audience and earnings without paying for advertising ahead of time.

By utilizing Ad Credits, citizens will be classified as having their earnings “ON”, which means they have the ability to earn on the platform just like they have been on FanBox. Citizens also have the choice to turn their earnings “OFF”, which means they will not have the ability to utilize Ad Credits, earn from their activities, or spend and cash out anything in their balance.  

By keeping their earnings ON, there is still a monthly Ad Platform fee in place, but there will no longer be late fees if someone is unable to pay their Ad Platform fees on time. Instead, when they pay their Ad Platform fee on time, they'll instantly receive a rebate of 50% of their fee directly into their empowr balance that can immediately be cashed out via bank check or PayPal; spent in the marketplace; or utilized to further accelerate their earnings using empowr ads or Power User subscriptions.

To ensure all current FanBox members have the time to adjust to these changes, the new Ad Platform fee logic will not take effect for them until January 1st, 2016. In other words, current FanBox users will continue to enjoy earning from boosting and IPL, and their fee will be approximately 1.5% on any IPL they use.

For new empowr citizens, the new Ad Platform fee logic will be in place immediately. This means they pay approximately 2.9% on any Ad Credits used, and get 50% back immediately when they pay it on time – so that in the end, they end up paying about the same as current FanBox users if they pay their fees on time.

Post Limits

In empowr there will be daily limits to how many posts a citizen can earn from. This feature will be live immediately, which means the quality of posts and the amount that citizens earn per post will be increasing on empowr. To be extra clear, citizens will NOT be earning less than before, as the same pool of funds will be used to pay everyone. The new limits just mean that everyone will be earn the same, on average, but with much less effort.

Also to be clear, you can make unlimited posts each day! The limit only applies to how many of your posts will apply to your earnings.

When you make a post, you'll be notified of how many posts you have left to count towards your earnings for that day, and choose whether to count your current post or not.

empowr Open To Red Star Power Users 

 

The moment we’ve all been waiting for is starting now!

I’ll be in touch soon to announce the next set of Power Users that are able to join empowr.

Any questions? I'm here for you.
