The Updated Review for 2016
People have a lot of opinions about the Empower Network online business opportunity. But any company who can pull as much attention to itself and creates as much buzzz as a multi million dollar company like the Empower Network llc, unfortunately is bound to have a lot of controversy surrounding it.
Since most of the other Empower Network reviews out there are outdated and contain old information, I decided it was time to do a complete updated Empower Network review that properly represents the current state of the Empower Network opportunity. Other reviews on Empower Network list only 5 products – this number has been upped. The Empower Network blog has also been changed around a little bit, making it more profitable for everyone involved.
Overall, if you’ve read any other Empower Network reviews, you’ll definitely see the difference here, showing just how far the company has progressed from the time it was 50 people in a hotel room to the upwards of 200,000 people who are earning 6-figures a year now!
The Empower Network – What is it exactly?
If you’ve never read an “Empower Network review” and have no idea what the Empower Network opportunity is about, let’s start here: the Empower Network opportunity is an internet training and marketing program for entrepreneurs (and a lot of home based businesses) that helps its members reach heights of success they only dreamed of before. Through the Empower Network training and cutting edge marketing tools and techniques, thousands of people just like you have been able to get their businesses up and running, creating new sources of income and allowing them to think about retiring in just a few years.
But perhaps more importantly, the Empower Network marketing program also allows people to become “resellers” of the products – that is, to take what you already learned from the training and sell it to others, thereby earning a high commission. To date (over the past two years), over $70 million has been paid out to members of the Empower Network. The prediction is that this year in 2014 over $150 million will be paid out to the Empower Network members and the goal is to also create 100 new millionaires this year. And that can be anyone of us!
The Empower Network – Who Started It And Why?
Yes, this all happened in just three years. The EN was started just a few years ago by David Wood and David Sharpe, two Internet marketing and raw marketing gurus who overcame homelessness, unemployment, alcoholism and other struggles. The two pulled themselves up by the bootstraps and created the most successful Internet marketing system ever: the Empower Network.
Launched on October 31st, the network pulled 6-figures in commission the first week alone, the company never looked back, bringing thousands of entrepreneurs and savvy marketers along for their ride towards the riches.
The two Daves had a vision that everyone must be able to create freedom for themselves and help empowering others along the way. The only solution was that it needed to be simple. So simple that even a grandma could do it. The biggest hurdle, the biggest challenge for someone to start online is the “technical” factor. A lot of people would like to have an online income, but technically do not know where to start and what to do. Here’s where the Empower Network opportunity jumped in and created one of or not the best home business opportunity in the world with a low cost entry ($25), training and the ability to make money fast if you follow the given instructions and use the tools provided.
Someone who wants to start an online business, getting in an online marketing program, should be marketing their business and not getting stuck on the technical issues of the business.
Dave Wood has earned millions of dollars with “blogging” his way to success and was determined that he could inspire others to do the same thing and that was the start of the Empower Network. No technical background, no programming skills, no sales and marketing background, it doesn’t matter where you’re from, everyone must be able to create wealth online with a teachable simple 3 step formula; blog daily, share and get paid. This is the main principle of the Empower Network.
It had to be plug and play and it had to be easy to pass on to others for duplication purposes. And the compensation involved, the money you could make out of your living room had to be out of this world. They did exactly that!
Here’s the cool thing about the Empower Network founders… Yes the are the founders, but they do not sit on top and collect all the money. They have also made themselves affiliates of the company, having the same rights and rules as any other affiliate member in the company. Go ask and check around which other Network Marketing company owner does that. These guys are very transparent about what they do in the company and are at the same level as any other member. That’s very unique in this industry.
How Does Empower Network Help Entrepreneurs?
It accomplishes this by offering in-depth Marketing & Personal Development training that is on par with gaining an MBA in business from some of the best colleges in the world. The only difference here is rather than spending hundreds of thousands of dollars and four years, you make hundreds of thousands of dollars in a few years or less. By focusing on the most common issues that entrepreneurs face, the Empower Network is able to eliminate the hurdles to success that trip many people up.
Income Disclaimer: There’s no guarantee that everyone will generate this much or any money. But, if you take action and implement what you learn in the training, you will be genuinely closer you’ve ever been before.
Working in multi level marketing (MLM), affiliate programs, Internet marketing and commission based direct sales, members of the Empower Network are among the most successful internet entrepreneurs in the world today. Still, one of the most surprising aspects of the network is that most of the member’s success comes through one of the most common ways to make money online; blogging. The Empower Network has a blogging platform and formula that they call their “Viral Blogging System”. It allows members to easily setup their own website and have it operating as a small business within minutes. Even faster than setting up a Facebook fanpage. But the real power of the Blog system comes in its ease of optimization and its powerful lead generation architecture to make let people who visit your blog go through the sales funnel and make you sales. As a matter of fact, when you are an Empower Network Member, you will receive your username right? You can paste this username behind any Empower Network url and not just a selection of a few pages. So if someone takes action on any of those urls, the sale is tracked back to you and you receive the commission. This is very rare in the industry to be able to play with your ?id=username code. This is how helpful this company is towards entrepreneurs. They want you to make money.
Empower Network – The Products
Here’s a look at the products that Empower Network provides its members. Keep in mind that these are also the products that members buy reseller rights for ($19.95 affiliate fee) and then turn around and sell on a 70% commission (that means by selling just one of these products, you make your money back from your initial purchase).
Below are the five main Empower Network products:
- Kalatu Blogging System: $25/Month. This is the flagship of the Empower Network and the blog is already setup from the get go. So it’s perfect for first time bloggers and people who are looking for an automated way to make money through their blog. This is an all in one professional blog system that comes with its own back office for your content management and other social functions. Simple, fast and proven to work.
- Inner Circle: $100/month. An archived digital library of stories, testimonials, training exercises about entrepreneurship, what’s working now marketing strategies, team building, mindset, personal development and much, much more. The quintessential starters kit for those looking to make money online. Keeps you motivated, on track and best of all, it’s an easy sell meaning you make a residual commissions each month.
- Top Producer Formula: One time $500. This course has some killer Internet Marketing content and brilliant nuggets of advice and is worth much much more. The general consensus on this is that it will be updated soon again as any other marketing course within the EN. The Empower Network really focuses on what is working for its members to succeed. So the Costa Rica Intensive will be updated soon, at which point it might become worth 100x the investment fee.
- Team Building Formula: One time $1,000. This is the top-selling industry standard in webinars, giving you just about every secret the pros have. Look over their shoulder and replicate their success by learning their process and copying it. That’s how the Empower Network membership has turned into a collection of 6-figure earners.
- Mass Influence Formula: One time $3,500. An HD advanced training for higher end entrepreneurs that are moving between $10k and $100k each month. This is really for the movers and shakers and not needed if you plan on just running your average, run of the mill home business.
Below are three other training products that rolled out in late 2013 beginning of 2014:
- Viral Blogging Academy: One Time Fee of $297. This is a course on how to really step up your blogging game, including a 90-day action plan that will have your business profitable in just a few months time with little to no initial investment in the business. Just pure blogging techniques. Members have been asking for this for a while and the company yet again delivered
- High Ticket Academy: One time fee of $497 (price soon to go up). This relatively new product contains webinar based teaching. These will teach you how to sell high-ticket items. Exercises include actually making the sales calls so you are earning as you’re learning.
- Internet Traffic Formula: Currently $497 pre-launch; $997 after launch, with an additional $497 up-sell. There isn’t a whole lot of information out on this product yet because it has just launched, but it mainly focuses on how to generate tons of traffic through solo ads, media buys and similar paid traffic sources. At the discounted pre-launch price, members are buying like crazy, having seen the quality of the other products and excited about this new Empower Network opportunity.
Do these Empower Network Products have any value to you?
If you would ask me the question, if I would lay down $5,000 on the table for a certain education that will give you the skills to potentially let you make $1,000,000 in two years time, then my answer will be Yes. I would even pay $9,000, $15,000, $20,000 or even $95,000 for these type of valuable products such as the Viral Blogging System and the rest of the Empower Network training products.
Benjamin Franklin said it best when he said:
“An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest!”
Education is important and I’m a huge fan of good education, but going to college and university also has its costs nowadays. In this new digital economy you can study from home and also work form home. Looking at that fact, $5,000 as a total package price is really nothing compared to the college and university fees. Don’t get me wrong here… any education, online, offline, traditional, non traditional, as long as this education has a good positive effect on students, giving them the results they need in life, there is value in it. So is the case with the Empower Network marketing education that you will get as an EN member.
Keep in mind that all products above are also accessible through your Empower Network App on your mobile or tablet, which gives you the power to login, add content to your blog on the go or just go through your training modules whenever and wherever you are. The app functions on all smartphones and tablets and is a great bonus and asset to have. to give you an example, when I water my plants here in my tropical garden here in Costa Rica, I always listen to the Innercircle training audios through my earphones that are plugged into my iPhone. I listen to the latest, what’s working now strategies, personal development topics and other material about how to gain success in your business, any business. The stuff you learn in the Empower Network training, you can really apply it in any business, offline or online. This already is a huge bonus to have access to.
The Empower Network Blog reviewed
I wanted to share with you here in this section of this complete Empower Network review how the Blogging platform is and how we use it ourselves. I want you to have an example of how YOU can make use of it once you have it. The Viral Blogging System is the flag ship of the Empower Network.
As you may already know, the two Daves wanted to eliminate the barrier, the wall, the hurdle, however we can wanna call it, for people who want to have an “online precence” with a blog website. It doesn’t matter if you are a business owner, a school teacher, a nurse, a hobbyist, a traveler, you want to share your knowledge, your expertise, your experiences, your tips, do’s & don’ts with the world or simply put, your audience. Everyone has an audience whether you know it or not. So it all started with this vision to allow people to be online fast, without the technical, programming, web development issues. I know people who have been trying for years to get a website up, failed, stopped during the process, investing way too much or just be frustrated at it. Me myself was one of them. It takes time to understand web development, you need to know how to build a website, programming, designing etc. This is what stops people’s dreams to start something online. Fortunately I taught myself how to build sites over the years, but the road I was on, I really do not recommend to anyone.
You want to be online and you want to be online fast right? This is why the Empower Network Viral Blogging System was developed; to help people all over the world with a plug and play blog website that they can use for whatever purpose. For your own existing business or just for yourself. Whatever you use your blog website for doesn’t matter. You’re gonna be up and running, faster than putting up a Facebook fan page and you can start creating a relationship with your desired audience from day one.
A lot of members have their own products to sell and use the Empower Network blog for that. If you do not have anything to sell, you can sell the Empower Network products for 100% commissions. With this being said you can already imagine and understand that this is really something anyone can use.
Here the benefits of the Empower Network blog platform:
- No buying of domain names, you will get a domain
- No buying of hosting for your website, your blog website will be hosted for you
- No technical knowledge necessary
- No designing skills necessary
- Your blog website comes standard with a commercial architecture; 3 banner areas (top, side and bottom)
- You can customize your layout structure, back ground color, fonts etc with a couple of clicks.
- You can have and manage multiple blogs from your one account to target multiple niches if necessary
- Your blog website comes with SEO (Search Engine Optimization) ready features to let you rank faster on the search engines
- Your domain name sits on a High Authority Domain (empowernetwork.com) which will even help you rank more easier than your competitors
- Everything about your blog and business you can find in your one back office
- I probably forgot some more benefits but you get the picture.
- All this for only $25 / month and I’m not kidding!
If you would develop a blog website on your own, looking at all the aspects in the above summary, you will be spending thousands of dollars worth of time, energy, outsourcing and possible frustration. Nobody wants to start a web presence like that right? Let alone making it a business start.
Looking at the Alexa (Web Information Company) ranking for the empowernetwork.com domain, you will see that the stats are not lying. We have something good here. Check it out yourself: RIGHT HERE
We ourselves use our Empower Network Blog to share our life experience in Costa Rica. Our audience for that blog is everyone who is interested in traveling or living in Costa Rica.
How do we make money with our blog?
In our case, we share our experience and knowledge about Costa Rica with our niche audience. We share our blog posts to our audience on Social Media. (Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn etc.) There are other ways to syndicate your content as well which you will learn along the way. So we get web traffic, people click on the banners we have on our blog, they go wherever page we want them to go to, they opt in, go through the sales funnel and believe me, a very high percentage will be sold on the opportunity of having such a blog for themselves, make money blogging, a home business etc. Boom!
The 3 step formula that the two Daves created really works! Make money blogging!
- Blog daily
- Share your content with your audience (very important)
- Get Paid!
I’m sure you already have a couple of ideas what you want to blog about, what you want to share with your audience. But you also might be thinking… I haven’t written nothing since my high school years, how do you expect me to blog everyday? Well… let me tell you something… Once you have a topic or theme you want to share with your audience, your business products or services, your hobbies, your passion, whatever you want to blog about, and you are going to sit behind your keyboard, magic starts happening! Your mind is going to be in a certain state that you didn’t know you had. Words, sentences, paragraphs and whole pages are going to come out of your mind without you knowing that was possible. That’s the magic of blogging.
But don’t worry. You will have the right training to go through once you’re in. You get complimentary training about blogging to get you started right away. If you want to take your blogging skills to another higher level, you can always pick up a training product such as “The Viral Blogging Academy”. But for starters you can put in your email address in the web-form in the sidebar of this website and I will send you a FREE pdf report about finding your niche, creating your blog content and profiting right from the start!
Make money blogging is possible! You only need to do!
Empower Network – The Compensation Plan in short
I have made a “dedicated” page in this website about the EN comp plan, but since you are already here, let’s just briefly talk about it. (For more in depth info and a video, look for it in the navigation menu on the right)
The Empower Network compensation plan is simple, and it keeps all members motivated and earning, so it works. The general premise is that you make commissions on products that you sell which you are personally signed up for yourself. So if you are only a $25 per month member, you can sell all the products but you only make the $25 per month signups in commission. This is why many people sign up at every level. This is where people eventually go all in to be able to make more higher commissions looking at the Empower Network product and commissionable prices.
If you signup at every level and you signup a person that buys every level, you get a commission (minus $500 for the Masters Course which pays a $3,000 commission). This is how people are making thousands of dollars each day with the Empower Network. If you aren’t signed up for a level you sell, it goes up the “power line” until it reaches someone who did signed up for it.
The 1st, 3rd, 5th commission you make is passed up to the person who signed you up. Every 5th commission after that is also passed up. This keeps everyone paid and everyone motivated. Of course, the people you sign up also pass their 1st, 3rd, 5th commission up to you as well as every 5th commission after that. A simple way to look at it is that you make 50% of commissions total on your first 6 sales and then make 80% of commissions on every sale after that. If everything falls into place, with your team members signing up people as well, it all comes back to earning very high commissions. Check out the “dedicated” page I made in this website about the compensation plan and you will understand why people are joining the Empower Network opportunity by the masses and why people are making good money for the first time in their lives without needing to recruit an army of people.
What are the “minimal” cost to join the Empower Network opportunity as a Business?
Good question! What I suggest you do is to get in for $25.00 / month. Then you can use the Viral Blogging Platform and you also have access to the complimentary high value training modules which honestly they could have charged an additional $2000.00 for. But now you can start your own Blog Network. Yes, I say “network” because from your “one” account, you can have and manage multiple blogs on different (sub)domains about different themes / topics. If you do that is up to you. I would just start with one to keep things simple. Hundreds of thousand of people just use the blogging platform as it is so simple to use and has all the benefits as explained in the section above.
Ok… Let’s talk business. If you want to become an affiliate in order to receive the commissions deposited to your bank account if you sell the Empower Network products, you can sign up as an affiliate for $19.95 / month. You might be thinking: Why doI need to pay an affiliate fee if I sell the Empower Network products? Because if you don’t, and the Empower Network company pays out ridiculously high commissions, how do you think they can afford their company technical infrastructure, overhead and other you know what company costs to stay in business. Make sense? This is how they can pay the affiliates their high commissions. No other company in the industry will give you this percentage. It usually is 30 – 40% max.
If I were you and you are serious about growing a sustainable business for the long run, I would sign up for an email marketing system such us GetResponse. We personally use this service and you can integrate this with the Empower Network platform. What does this mean? You can now capture & manage the email addresses of your leads when they “opt in” a web-form. Just like the banner web form you see on this website where you can put in your email address. This is also done with GetResponse. You can broadcast emails, program your follow up messages over the course of your desired time frame, see statistics and much more. Basically a “must have” when active online. This Email Marketing Service costs you $19.00 / month. If you pay per quarter, half year or full year, what I do, this fee will drop significantly and thus can be dropped down to $15.00 / month
So if you add up everything to start your Online Business with the Empower Network your total will be: $25.00 + $19.95 + $15.00 = US$ 59.95
Let’s summarise what you get for this $59.95 / month:
- You have basically set up the foundation for your own online business. Woot woot!
- You have the opportunity to create your own blog network with the Viral Blogging System and share your info with the world, your niche, your audience
- You have access to the Empower Network Training Center which has by far the best training and coaching modules in the industry
- You have the reselling rights to participate with the comp plan and receive up to 80% commissions
- As an affiliate you will have your own eWallet Merchant account to receive and send your money to anywhere in the world
- You can use the Sales & Marketing platform (also including your coded capture pages) of the Empower Network which basically does the selling for you
- You will receive additional ongoing Marketing & Personal Development Training through Google Hangouts, Webinars and Live Training calls
- You can now capture the emails of your leads and build a relationship with them and sell your opportunities right in their inbox. This is gold.
- Save the best for last: You will automatically become a member of the Prosperity Team for FREE when you join through us. See info about the Prosperity Team below.
Are you an entrepreneur, do you want to have your own business? You already know by now that this $59.95 is peanuts compared to what you would pay for opening a traditional brick and mortar business, a franchise or any kind of other business model. Open a restaurant, a shoe store, any store, invest a couple of hundred thousand dollars, and try to get your money back within 5 years. Good luck with that! Been there done that! We are living in the new economy, we live in the digital era, we live in a world where we can make money from your living room, hammock or bed if you have a computer and Internet. Now you have the opportunity to make a 6 – 7 figure income right here! The decision is yours to make.
