Hello dear friends,


First of all, I want to thank you all for your support. I am really happy to be one of the five candidates in the second round because, I want to make a difference for the empowr platform.


There are many changes ahead of us. Brian has announced a list of changes which the empowr team is working on right now and which can be a benefit for all of you if you do the right thing.


In this second round of the president’s election you will choose the best two candidates out of five and I strongly hope you vote for me. So, now it is time to give you more insight in my plans.


The marketplace is the heart of empowr

An economy exists because of supply and demand. We trade goods and services for the empowr coin and the more we trade the more the coin will be used. Without the marketplace it would not be possible to have the empowr economy.


The empowr platform is now based on using only cryptocurrency

Just recently the EMPR became a bit volatile on the exchange market and as a result everybody who was viewing his balance details in a fiat currency experienced a sudden fall in earnings. The fiat value of the empowr coin becomes important when you are ready to transfer out your fully matured or ACM coins. Until then, the value of the coin should be based on how many empowr coins citizens want to pay for the goods and services in the marketplace. That’s why empowr shows the sales price and auction price in the listings in EMPR. And that’s also why I want to show the balance details page only in EMPR.

 

 Presidential Candidate Annet Hoogenboom

 

A little text box on the marketplace page and/or the homepage with the current value of the EMPR is enough to keep everybody informed about what happens with the coin on the exchange market. In the example I show the value in ETH but you could also choose your local currency instead. This way, we can focus on trading in the marketplace and we will not be influenced too much by the fluctuation of the value of the coin.  


empowr is working on a rating for buyers and sellers, called Marketplace excellence

Those citizens that are providing the most value to the economy are rewarded with the highest capacity for transferring out coins. This rating system will help a lot but, I think we can do more to remove the fake listings from the marketplace.


One of the problems in the marketplace is fake listings

Listings which will never be delivered and were only created to hit the list goal, are fake listings. It helps people to hit all 4 daily goals, and to spin the mission wheel with a chance to win some coins. Even when the winning amount on the mission wheel is not high (because there are no mission points from sales), it is still a chance to win coins. As a buyer you don’t want to be confronted with fake listings all the time, and it  is an unfair situation towards citizens who are real sellers.


The system should be able to recognize fake sellers.

I am all in favor of giving someone a second chance, so when a citizen is marked as a fake seller (creating a lot of listings over a certain period and none of the listings are marked received), I would like empowr to send this citizen an automated message with the option for this citizen to

  • deliver any of the sold products within 1 month (click on this option to notify the system)
  • ask his success coach to explain to him how he start delivering the sold products (click on a link to notify his success coach), or
  • pay back to the community the winnings of the past 6 months from the mission wheel and
  • be blocked to create a new listing until he has delivered at least one of the sold products

When the citizen does not respond by clicking on a link in the message within 48 hours, his success coach will be notified anyway to reach out to him to explain why it is important to deliver the goods that he sold and to stop creating fake listings.

When this citizen clicks on the first link and then does not take action (by adding shipping details in the listing), he will be blocked after 48 hours for creating any listings until he has a listing which is marked received.


We will all benefit from a marketplace where we can buy real products and services. It will be good for the reputation of Empowr’s marketplace, which will result in many new sign ups, more referrals and more sales. In the end, we will all win!


What if a % of the sales price is converts into ACM coins?

I mention in my presidential program sellers need to receive a % of the sales price as ACM after goods are marked received. Why is this important? Because it is the best promotion for the empowr platform there is. Earnings from sales from day one will attract many new sign ups. New citizens will bring in new products, more coin sales and will help the platform to grow and to reach its mission goal of helping half the planet to earn a minimum of $25 a day.

Presidential Candidate Annet Hoogenboom

Promoting the success of citizens is important

We used to have one page #empowrface where you could find all success stories, such as citizens cashing out. I would like to introduce a new page for success stories called “empowrsuccess”, not only to show citizens transferring out their coins but, also successfully (paid and delivered) sales transactions and a live box with the average value of the empowr coin on the exchange market. The page will be blocked for other people’s posts.


There are other ideas I want to address

Recently empowr published an announcement in which citizens were asked to tell their ideas of how to improve the platform. Many citizens responded and this was really appreciated. Empowr is not only the empowr team. Citizens are very important and your joint knowledge will help empowr to move from alpha to beta stage. Empowr countries are introduced with this purpose, to make it possible for citizens to have a voice in empowr. Country admins are citizens who have stepped up and are dedicated to the success of empowr. Countries will compete with each other as the most successful country will be the one with the highest total of mission points. I think competition is great but collaboration between the countries will be even better. Therefore I want to set up a focus group, a qualitative form of research in which a group of people is asked about their perceptions, ideas and opinions about empowr and I want to ask the country admins to nominate a member. This group consists of 10 members who want to participate in the development of empowr for a period of 6 months. After 6 months someone else can be nominated or the current member of a country extends his participation with another 6 months. This group will be a dynamic group where different ideas are born.


There is more to come

I would like to tell you in detail how I will address the other ideas mentioned in my previous blog as well as ideas I received from you, like

  • how to prevent plagiarism in blogs
  • how to improve sponsoring of listings
  • if it is possible to implement the option to sell EMPR to empowr (buy back) within the empowr platform, not using the blockchain, for  sellers to recoup their inventory and shipping costs, according certain conditions (this is an interesting one, Tom Feeney)

but now I want to ask your attention for the next voting round.

August 17, 2018 the second round of this Presidential election will start.

You are asked to vote for the two candidates out of five that have your preference. This is your chance to influence the future of empowr. All candidates are skilled professionals, which personality do you think is best for empowr?


To vote, please go to your left menu bar and click on “We the people”.


When I become President of empowr

I will move to San Diego and start working with the empowr team around the second half of October. I will end my activities as entrepreneur (administration office) when you choose me as your President so that I can focus 100% on running the office of President. I will make a friend, who owns a similar administration office as I do,  very happy when I ask her to take over my current customers.


Feel free to leave your comment on this blog and to share your ideas.  


Thanks again for your support

Annet,
I am happy that you respond for what I aim in voting someone like you.
You respond to 3 CLAUSES that I wish to be implemented in our recent program the famous "OPEN ALPHA" that is used to test and making of it a "Game to play and change from day to another a new trial of ideas and we were and still "Loosers" " for many years already. Going with your idea in making it a BETA program that will eliminate , let's say already many BIG errors that we are suffering and not only that , wasting our time in waiting in long, long list or fixing these BUGS.

2-Making what you aspire to make by/with the countries and the admins is so great idea,

3- Trying to Change all about the marketplace is great too.

I hope that you complete the history of the ACM, and trying to pay us as soon as possible as sellers our COINS to ENERGIZE the coins and the Marketplace in investing back in.
Thank you for your great program!

Thank you for your feedback, Jo. I also would like to set up a marketing campaign, according a plan created with the help of citizens who are experts in this field. Our community is a reflection of society. We should be able to make more use of the resources that are available.
When empowr gets more attention, I'm sure empowr will ignite 💥🔥💥🔥 And when there is enough activity on the platform, it will not be necessary any longer to have daily goals, thus several pain points will vanish. The daily goals could be fased out

Please Make This Your #1 Priority!
Really setting the empowr coin on fire!!
There is one great way to set the empowr coin on fire - (release our funds) let us take money out of empowr!
Here are 3 easy steps to set the empowr coin on FIRE:
#1) Give us 100% of our mission wheel earnings every month.
#2) Give us 50% of our marketplace sales every month.
#3) Give us a percentage of our founder coins every month.
Do this and the empowr coin will go to the moon!!!

Annet Hoogenboom

Thank you, Info4auctio, for giving us your ideas. This would mean to eliminate maturation of the coins. I am in favor of abolishing the maturation of the coins if there is sufficient ground to assume that empowr remains in place. Empowr is also a bank and there are plenty of examples of banks that have fallen because too many people have taken too many funds in too short a time.

Pete Moss

thanks Annet many people list and would provide the product however are unable to simply because as there has been no transfer out they cannot replenish their stock or even afford to pay postage - sure hitting daily goals is an incentive however the most fundamental problem is the lack of cashflow - so rather than penalise 'fake listers ' i think you would find many of those people not really providing products would fall over themselves to do just that if they received some INCOME from the system - how are you supposed to sell without any income ? your idea of providing a per cent of the sales price after 'item received' is a possible solution however what per cent? excuse me for being picky, the thing is the process needs oiling , income needs to simply flow in so people can quickly and simply earn some money regularly so they can buy more goods, cover their postage costs, post their items , make some profit so they can feed themselves and pay a bill and then carry on from there to build their business, this is not meant as criticism, simply a view

Annet Hoogenboom

Hi Pete, What you described is exactly the reason why I want to give a certain % of ACM to all sellers. A sliding scale of different percentages of ACM (with different conditions) has my preference. 😉 Actually, I was thinking of a different type of "fake" listings. There are many copied listings in the marketplace of citizens who don't have a clue how to provide the product when it is sold. Education can help a lot. So, I also want to inspire citizens who can help to set up an educational program for citizens that will provide comprehensive information on topics such as: What do you need to know if you really want to be a good salesperson, How to calculate the sales price, What can you to keep your customer happy, how you can reach your target group, and so on.

What I believe the next president should concentrate his/her efforts on is to improve the support team reactivity (Not talking about SC's). Currently it's quasi inexistent. We need a back office that operates like clockwork before working on new improvement of the marketplace.
Good luck in your campaign Annet, go for it.

Thank you Madam Annette for the clear presentation of your Presidential vision and mission for Epowr. Indeed, market place is an important component of economic growth. I hope that market place will be restored after reforms have been instituted to eliminate fake listings and revive selling, buying, and bidding of various products as before because as of now, trade is not at work in the market allegedly because some unscrupulous fans list their products just for the sake of hitting the goals but are not willing to sell it. Good luck Madam.

I have read about fake listings but seen no mention of those who bid then don't pay. If they were all on bids, it would be understandable to some extent, but one particular citizen is saying they will buy my fixed price items, and is then not paying for them. This is really frustrating. He will have gained no bids towards the daily goal. Can I prevent him buying from me? What can we do to prevent us buying something we only bid on to meet our daily goal? I now have no money to spend because it is all tied up in sponsored items I never wanted to buy

Annet Hoogenboom

Hi Evelyn, you can prevent people who have many unpaid items to place a bid on your listing. After you've saved your listing (clicked on Sell it now) you can fill in the buyer's requirements.
