@haroldgardner I was amazed what I discovered playing with the AM05 and researching the company's history.

I hear you! As a freelancer, i write on various subjects, buts mostly about gadgets and consumer technology. I get some firms that email me 5 times or more times; others ignore me because I'm not in the US. In fact on one occasion, I ended up calling the cellphone listed in the email and got that person in their car. I was told that yes, they did get my emails & voicemail but reiterated their clients are in the US. Then she said. "If you really wanted to get a hold of me, you'd be persistent; you would and you did!" Wait, who is trying to pitch who? Blog readership has no geographic boundaries. Must have been a new concept to her.
On other hand, I did have another company actually go out of their way to help connect me with their Canadian counterpart who could help me.
Recently I did get a pitch that really piqued my attention. The subject line was:
"Tis the season to be single & selfish – treat yourself with the perfect gift this Valentine’s Day"
I thought it was so clever, I actually wrote about the pitch itself. http://blogs.canoe.ca/canoetech/contest/be-selfish-for-valentines-day-win-yourself-a-motorola-atrix-hd/ …

@ColeRuddick Thanks Cole! I agree 100%
@paulsteinbrueck Paul, thanks for sharing it in your circles. Let hope we get some good feedback on evaluating effectiveness.
@AlanJobe Most welcome!
@RCToyPalace Scary thought!
@Terri Nakamura @DES Daughter Same here, I had no idea. I started doing mission and the name kept coming up; then I started to spend more time reading the articles and began to understand what it was all about. When the opportunity came up, I thought that this is one story (DES awareness) and also how EAVE helps it happen, needed to be written and shared.
@IndyAgent Agree 100%
@DES Daughter You are most welcome. I am now much more informed about DES and what it's truly about and from the interest in the article, many more are now informed. Furthermore, I'm most impressed by the way you embraced Social Media and more specifically Empire Avenue missions to help raise the awareness of your cause. I guess you are proof that it works! Greg
PS. I also appreciate you sharing your tips on mission strategies.
@RLavigne42 @mqtodd Robert, that is so true! In fact, one of my future pieces will be on what/who I personally discovered through Empire Avenue that would not have been possible otherwise.

@paulsteinbrueck ok, thanks, Paul,Will do!
@paulsteinbrueck Hi Paul, thanks for the vote of confidence glad u enjoyed the article. It was fun writing and talking to EAVE peeps. I also hear what you are saying and thanks! I'm sure Dups and Ric are working on it. What amazes me is what they have accomplished with such a small group of people. @gadgetgreg @paulsteinbrueck
@haroldgardner Harold, these are only a few stories; I'm confident there are many more. I had a few who were simply too busy to talk to me. Some have a long reach, others not so much. But unlike other platforms, EAV seems to be a catalyst. I guess in Dups and Ric's words: Social Media Rocket Fuel. @gadgetgreg
@RLavigne42 Robert, you are a great interviewee. You had lots to say. Sadly there was only so much room! :) @gadgetgreg @RLavigne42
@jimwirshing Ah! So you are the person! :) Robert spoke very highly of you!
@GeeklessTech Yes, thanks for the tips! They were useful.
