New to empowr?

 

Hello empowrians!

I know everyone is very busy closing loops, hitting goals and providing products and services, but I wanted to borrow a few moments from your time to:

1.  give you a quick update on what we’re working on, and 

2.  get your thoughts and guidance, so we’re prioritizing our work based on your feedback

First, an update on what we’re working on:


Expanding empowr countries

As you're all aware, last month we introduced the concept of empowr countries so that more power and control can be put into the hands of the empowr citizens.

Based on your feedback, these powers will include, but are not limited to:

Voting and electing your country’s leader(s), representatives and judges

Creating community and commerce rules and procedures

Deciding how cash outs will be distributed

Choose what opportunities should be opened to new citizens at various stages of their citizen process

Control Success Coach hiring, training, managing and auditing

Launch and control billing platforms

Enforce citizen penalties, suspensions, and removals


Since we last spoke, hundreds of empowr pre-countries have been created, and there are many that have begun to gain traction among large groups of empowr citizens.

Soon, every empowr pre-country will have important statistics and data added to its profile page, showing things such as number of citizens, how productive its citizens are (that is, average 30-day Mission Points for its citizens), how much production overall its citizens have (that is, cumulative 30-day Mission Points for all citizens), etc.. 

A country leaderboard based on Mission Points will also be launched – so all citizens can compare countries (and pre-countries) based on their Mission Points and other important metrics, as they decide which one they want to be a part of.

From there, the countries with the most productive citizens (measured by 30-day Mission Points) will achieve official empowr country status and will then gain access to the features mentioned above and much more.

As a reminder, citizens earn mission points by hitting their Daily Goals and successfully selling products and services (that are marked as “Item Received” or “Service Received” by customers) to a wide variety of citizens. (Citizens earn much less points when selling to the same people over and over again).

You’ll want to focus on earning more Mission Points to ultimately strengthen the country you decide to create or join.  

Mission Points will be the most important factor in determining when a pre-country qualifies to become a country. 

Also, many citizens will decide which country they want to join, based on how productive they are, exactly like what happens with real countries (the countries with the highest Gross Dometic Product figures have the most people wanting to go there). 

So, if your country or pre-country is among the most productive (as measured by its the Mission Points its citizens are generating) it will benefit from both an abundance of resources as well as an abundance of citizens wanting to join it.

To see your current Mission Points, just roll over your all-time Daily Goals badge on your profile:

What are we working on?

If you haven't already created your pre-country, there's no better time than the present; simply visit the Communities page, select “empowr country”, and then click “Create your empowr country” to get started.


Improving citizen experience

While we're working on providing more control to all empowr citizens, we're also working on several areas that will help provide a better overall citizen experience for everyone.

For example, ensuring that every empowr citizen has the knowledge and support to be successful within empowr is crucial for us in achieving our mission. 

This is made possible thanks to our amazing Success Coach team, who make themselves available around the clock to support their students as best as they can.

We’re currently working on 35 new features for Success Coaches, who have been waiting patiently for a long time, for improvements to the tools they use to serve the community.

For example, in an effort to ensure that all empowr citizens receive the help they need in 24 hours or less, soon student messages will be escalated up to a lead Success Coach when your own Success Coach is unable to respond quickly enough or cannot address a certain question to your satisfaction. 

Another example is a redesign of the entire Success Coaching “client center” platform in order to improve their visibility and quality of service to their students. That redesign includes the removal of outdated items and addition of new items that they have been asking for. 

And yet another example is a feature designed to make Success Coaches (and while we’re at it, everyone) more productive via the launch of empowr Inbox Folders:


Improving your empowr inbox using folders

As the most active empowr citizens will tell you, navigating through the empowr inbox can be quite inefficient, given all the different types of communications you send and receive.

Soon, all empowr citizens will have access to a folder system within their inbox where they can automatically route, sort and store the various type of messages (earnings reports, marketplace alerts, Success Coach messages and more) they receive: 

What are we working on?

Success Coaches have been requesting and waiting a long time for this feature, and we cannot wait to launch it, at the very moment it’s ready and tested.


empowr transport layer (ETL)

We've recently discussed our vision of offering "everything fast and free" in the very near future by adding just a few additional functionalities to the product suite.

Recently, we released the first phase of this initiative with the introduction of sharing, where sellers on empowr can share the products they own (instead of selling them) so that citizens near the seller can access the products they want for a specific period of time and then return those products at very little expense.

We're now very close to releasing the next phase of ETL (empowr transport layer), which includes 23 new features to enable empowr citizens to transport products (shared and sold on empowr) to empowr citizens that live locally.

Through transporting, empowr citizens will be able to view all of the products that have recently sold, and can then earn by picking up and delivering the product for the sharer or user:

What are we working on?


The empowr app platform

We’re also working fast and furiously on the empowr app platform, designed to enable hundreds and eventually thousands of software developers to dream up and launch countless new ways for everyone to earn, work, play, communicate and be informed or entertained.

We've already received many inquiries from app developers anxious to get started, and are currently working with several that will be releasing the first few apps on the platform.

For those of you that have yet to reach out with your ideas, it's not too late to be among one of the first developers.  Go here to get started or learn more 


Solutions in the works

We’re constantly pausing our work on all the above items to fix and improve any issues that you report to us, as well as improving our infrastucture so that your empowr experience is fast and seamless. 

As many of you have advised, we need to always prioritize the fixing of current issues above launching new features, and we continue to do that, which slows down production on the newer items but ensures many of the obstacles you face daily are fixed as soon as possible to help reduce frustrations.


The 2nd half of 2017 

In addition to the above, the team is very focused on coming up with ideas for the top 10 things that you tell us you want (using the monthly customer feedback voting system) and solutions to the top 10 things you don’t like or frustrate you about empowr.

Based on the various stages of these items, and how close many of these solutions are to being ready for engineering development and testing…

…  I can tell you with confidence that by the end of this year, 1) virtually all of what frustrates and/or confuses both new and old citizens will be history forever, and 2) most of you will be very, very pleased with how far we will have come together in the 2nd half of 2017 (which starts today, July 1st). 

Stay tuned for announcements on those items.


But what are we missing? 

Got any strong opinions about what we should focus on next? If so, please let us know in the comments below so we’re always prioritizing our work based on your guidance.

Thank you again for all of your support!

Your president,
Brian Woosley

I would like to ship more items being ordered but due to financial problems, I myself already paused shipping items.
There is a negative net income after I delivered many items for the last six months that's why I made a decision like that.
Empower must give some extra funds so that more shipment of products can be done.
Since I am here more then a year but unable to cash out a single penny from here.
Hope the plate form go better and full fill our dreams. good luck to empowr and good luck to team.

We're with you Anum Aftab, looking forward to seeing just what apps they are working on. It would be great to know if they're working on a similar app like the one we're working on for our country so that maybe we could share data to make the apps the best they can be on both sides.

Thanks, Brian. These are all great features which we have been looking up to.
Good Job!

I would just mention this, maybe it is in the pipeline already - To have a sort feature in the "I've Bought" Page and the "I've Sold" Page so that we can easily switch between to see what products need to be paid for, what products need shipping address and the various categories on the pages mentioned.

Good information.
I have some ideas regards spam and nice pics.
So this site is so clean and you can call it healthy, so we have to fight both to keep this site clean.

When you receive many spam every day it is anoging some people works while the children are near him/her and suddenly you see some nice pics which is not good .
My point is I should have a chance to block such citizen.

Wow! Quite interesting . I love this about empowr, always improving. but I wanted to hear something about adding one or More payment mechanism. It's sad that , PayPal has only been the way to pay us. Some of us are working hard yet, due to our country limitations by PayPal, we struggle to get payed

Yda4aonl

I support you! How can we sell goods if we can not get money for it? Many countries do not work PayPal and it is very sad for us. We work every day, and we can not squeeze money, many of us are disappointed that we are not heard. For us in the first place is the addition of a payment system!

Я вас поддерживаю! Как нам продавать товары если мы не можем получить деньги за него? У многих странах не работает Пей Пал и это очень печально для нас. Мы каждый день трудимся, а вывести деньги не можем, многие из нас разочарованы что нас не слышат. Для нас на первом месте стоит это добавление платёжной системы!

hello team...i would be very glad if you can make a popup window that is remiding us on when a new message has arrived or when there is surge alerts available. That could be as a small windows like the same when I get messages on my mailbox from yahoo,com. Just a reflecting small window on the computer would help to never miss any new messages as beeing a coach and also never miss a surge allert. i know that comes on the mailbox, but they are oftenly getting on very late and so I miss for example the surge allerts. i am online all the day and checking messages very oftenly, but this tool could really be helpfull to all ot us.

Please pass on my gratitude to all the amazing people working the front lines and behind the lines to make this possible.

it's thanks to you that I've created the largest pre-country with 2,967 people www.empowr.com/JoinThisCountry

I know coaches like May work 24x7 💕 💙 \ (•◡•) / 💚 ❤️💜 (?=Smile=Heart) 💛 that are working overtime to help fix issues within the countries while at the same time improving them.

One request is to see if they could set up the admins of the countries like a coach so that they have the same access to the coaching tools and the same ability to support their citizens in training and passing info to them and receiving info from them.

I'm dealing with questions on everything not only from my own citizens but from other countries as well.

The present form of communications and follow up is limiting my ability to do more to support my citizens, the other countries...empowr.

It would be fantastic to have access to these coaches tools, resources before the countries go live so that we can communicate our intentions for the country more effectively.

Thank you again,

Thank you, Brian. I'm so happy to read the update. It is really exciting to be part of this great platform.

Thank you for the update.. very interesting.
One major question I have had in the past 6 months is: Why is there so much emphasis on Sellers and NOT Buyers?
You can have a store, either online or brick-and-mortar with wonderful products, but if you have no customers / Buyers, your store cannot be a success.
I feel Buyers should be recognized just as much, if not more, than the Sellers on Empowr..... your thoughts, please.

Thank you for your comment, Yurly... I use the Work tools on a daily basis, but as many others have mentioned, many Sellers are leaving Empowr, as they NEED some type of compensation to keep going, until all the new additions have been implemented.
I am very proud of my Buyers and would like to see them recognized, as well.

Hello
Thank you for your information. Selling without receiving money, we can not continue, I am on the verge. I have 221 items sold and marked as received, it is too much money. It is clear that we need money to continue in this process. The system is working wrong, since April 28th I have achieved all my Daily Goals but the system has not given 23 of my daily goals, I have sent some messages without solution, my SC works hard in that but the issue is worse everyday. I have listed numerous items in Auction and they never appear on the marketplace. So, I have put too much energy and real money here, I have paid everything, so I need my account working well and money to live.
All the best

I propose to consider the question of introducing a crypto currency. You can approve one of the little-known crypto currency, which immediately rises in price if such a large community as empowr will start using it. This is a lot of money and a quick monetization of the company!!!

Hello again team...When getting a message that an auction is completed and will not be restarted again, (including the link for editing and restarting the auction), when I click the link in the message, it by faulties sends me to my site for my own products that i am listing....so the link is faulty as it should get me to "i am supporting" instead of "i am selling"

To be successful, you need to attract as many people as possible. And for this it is necessary first of all to resolve the issue of cash payments. And besides, I know a lot of people who have been blocking internal mail for a long time without giving reasons. This really hinders the work. And at the same time, I see a lot of profiles of people who violate the rules: there are links of other companies, pornographic photos, or posts with information calling for national strife. I think, first of all, you need to block such accounts. Those accounts that are locked, you need to check and release locks, if there is no reason. It is necessary to enable people to work normally.

I have given my views on many things on other Empowr blogs and wanted to write a very short comment. Sadly, it has become too long!
I am sad that so much is based on sales. When one has a small catchment area, like The UK, there are fewer citizens buying. I have listed all sorts of items to try and discover what people are interested in - but have failed to raise a single bid on the vast majority of them.
Is this my fault? It feels like it when i cannot earn many mission points. If they were based on the value of sales, and not just the number, i would have many more Mission Points. I cannot support high postage costs so selling items for more than $5 is really hard as these tend to be heavier and cost more to post. When i have tried to buy things i want from people who ship to the UK, every larger value item has been withdrawn from sale.
I have so many questions and comments i could write a novella! But i will stop here before i totally overload the readers.

Unlimitedme1 (Lisa)

I tend to with EvelynMW... I have done my best offering products and shipping them, only for the buyer to not receive them (or at least say they did not). And not one has ever been rated, even after messaging back and forth several times. It is difficult to move forward when constantly paying out of pocket and not receiving any "real world" compensation.... sad to say. I am not giving up, but look forward to an improved platform.

Thanks for the updates dear Brian, I will patiently wait for all these new interesting features.
Due to the fact that "Citizens earn much less points when selling to the same people over and over again", I am just wondering if it is possible to prevent buyers from buying with the same seller. The sellers have no way of controlling this. There are buyers who buy more than 20 products at the same time and sellers can not do nothing to stop it. Maybe the system could limit purchases made from the same buyer!

Katherine Nlcitizen

Hello Brian, it´s good having more earning opportunities here, like the sharing and ETL. The problem is, on how the way Empowr giving priority on a certain feature, it turns out to be unfair, every time a new feature comes up it will be a great advantage for them to get AMCO or whatever you call it next. Like the sharing and ETL features. It only works for the crowded countries, like US, Nigeria, UK, Russia, etc. where there are many people uses Empowr and their just living nearby. I can easily give an example, base in the city I live in. I can count on people living nearby me, who uses Empowr. 3 of us who are living nearby then it will turn out that our mission points will not grow or if there is, it will be lessened because we 3 try to share base from Empowr condition.

I also understand that there is an issue on direct selling because people are paying through the unmatured earnings and you have trouble coping up basing on the money cash flow in vs. AMCO, but there should be another solution on that.
