Empower Network Review

Nov 19th 2012 at 4:31 PM

This is my review of the The Empower Network.  The first thing that I want to tell you is that I am not a member of this program, so you will not find a sign up link in this review.  The Empower Network program is owned by David Wood and David Sharpe.  It was launched on October 31, 2011 and the web site was created on 1/11/2006 and its servers are located in Lansing, MI. 

At last known count it currently has over 20,000 members.

What Is Empower Network?  It is complete program in a box, plug-n-play WordPress blog that is hosted on the domain site, that includes Internet marketing and sales training.  It is also a MLM program that earns you 100% monthly commissions on some of your Empower Network paying referrals.  The Internet marketing is mostly about using SEO keywords in your blog postings and how to get your blog listed on the Internet search engines. So basically it is a marketing system with several marketing tools (blogger & market training) that includes a income source.

How Does Empower Network Work?  It cost $25 per month to get the WordPress blogging system and basic marketing training.  If you are planning on being able to make money from your referrals then you will also need to also paid $19.95 per month for a merchant account to be able to accepts payments from your referrals.

After you sign up, you immediately get redirected to an up-sell video that explains the benefits of becoming a member of the Inner Circle Training for $100 per month (which will allow them to listen to a weekly interview with a top earner or industry leader). If you decide to purchase the Inner Circle,  then you will be redirected to an up-sell video for the Costa Rica Mastermind Intensive course for an additional $500 to get a set of DVD's of  a recorded marketing seminar that was held in Costa Rica by program owner David Wood

You receive 100% of the money that your referrals pay in per month (if you set up an merchant account) on the 1st sale, 3rd, 5th and on sales 7-10.  However, you pass up your referral commissions that you have earned for your 2nd, 4th, 6th and every 5th referral that you sign up. These commissions are given to your sponsor.

What I Like?   The all in one box income program (includes SEO keyword training, WordPress blog, capture pages, marketing training, and web site).  The 100% pass up of new referral purchases.  100% monthly commissions from your paying referrals.  Easy set up.

What I Do Not Like?  The automatic up selling of the more expensive training (example- a Internet "newbie" could end up paying out as much as $644.95 for a program, without knowing that this program does requires a lot of learning, work, and signing up referrals to make money).  Also the fact the you lose some of your earned commissions to your up line (sponsor) and that it does not clearly stress to new members the importance of having to write blog postings and advertise in order to make the program work properly.

I do not like the fact that if you do not integrate a autoresponder into your Empower Network capture pages and websites, you will only be building a list for your sponsor.  And lastly if you happen to join under someone who is a newbie and is "clueless" or someone that is just not serious by Empower Network, then you could find yourself struggling for answers to your marketing answers.

My Opinion.   If you are careful to join under a GOOD sponsor, are willing to take the time to LEARN the marketing system, then take the TIME to do the blog postings daily, and put what you have learned to WORK in your blog postings and advertising, then I see NO reason that you can not make money with this program.

On the other hand, if you are not willing or do not have the time to do the WORK to build this type of business and/or you have joined under a "clueless' or "tire kicker" sponsor, then you will probability find it very hard to make any money with Empower Network.  But this can be said about ANY online "box" Internet training income program, not just Empower Network.  NO TIME, NO WORK, NO HELP, NO INCOME!!! 

My suggestion for "newbies" wanting to making money online using a blog, is to first join a FREE online marketing training program like MyPIP (My Partner In Profit) or MyPIP Income Challenge.  This way you can learn a little about the different types of online marketing like autoresponders, classified ads, safelists, traffic exchanges, article writing, blogging, videos, PPC ads, and  SEO keywords.  This will also help you decide if you do have the TIME and/or DESIRE to do this kind of online marketing, without having to spend a lot of money just to find out that it is not for you.
