So I had a bunch of people ask me why I haven’t joined the Empower Network yet and if I plan on joining in the future. Well, to be honest when I first saw it I decided to pass on it because I promised myself I wouldn’t join another biz opp again. Reason for that is because every single business opportunity I was in years ago died a miserable death lol
Biz opps usually die out and then people just move on to the next big thing. I am sure you know what I am talking about and you have probably experienced that yourself in the past. 99% of them are not sustainable and fall apart sooner or later.
Is it different with Empower Network?
Before I jump into my review let me tell you why it caught my attention and made me think about possibly using it as an seo tool. (I haven’t pulled the trigger yet)
You see, I love SEO and I am always on the look out for new tools and systems that would allow me to promote affiliate offers easily and more efficiently. The Empower Network marketing system is slick and allows you to do just that.
Their site quickly became an authority in the eyes of Google because of the massive traffic they have plus all the content being created on their blogging platform by the members.
Why is that powerful?
Because you could actually use Empower Network viral blogging platform to promote anything you want and easily get top rankings for your targeted keywords. This self-perpetuated system will probably allow the Empower Network last a long time because they will be constantly getting new traffic from the search engines and fueling their platform with more and more content.
The Empower Network is getting hot and the more members join the more content is being published on their domain name making it more powerful and driving even more traffic from the organic search results.
This is the only reason why I was looking at it and considering becoming a member.
First of all, what is Empower Network?
It’s basically an income opportunity that let’s you earn 100% commissions on every sale you make. It was created by David Wood and David Sharpe. It quickly became very popular because of the massive buzz around it. They launched around November if I am not mistaken and went viral from there. Once you read my entire review you will understand why it became so popular so quickly.
So let’s start the review with their product line.
Empower Network Products
They got 3 different products or levels I should say. The first level only costs $25/month and that basically gets you access to the viral blogging platform. I think that their lowest level actually has quite a bit of value. If you join Empower Network just for the opportunity aspect of it then you will miss out on something more valuable and that is the SEO potential of their domain name. So for $25/month you get to post content on their blogging platform. If you are smart then you would do some keyword research and find something to promote. Write some good content about a product you want to promote and post it on their blog. Then hit it with good backlinks and get it ranked for your keywords.
The first level also includes access to all their marketing materials (capture pages, banners, autoresponders etc.)
The next level product is what Empower Network calls the “Inner Circle Mastermind Membership”. The cost is $100/month and it grants you access to their marketing training. Whether there is value in that or not you will have to decide for yourself. Basically at that level you will receive new audio recordings each week that you can listen to and learn from. I haven’t joined Empower Network yet so I cannot elaborate on the value of this. Either way, I know from experience that most people will join at the highest level simply because they want to resell it to make more money.
If you join at the lowest level and sponsor someone who purchase their higher level products you will only earn the $25 commission and pass up the other sale to your upline.
The last product of Empower Network is the “Costa Rica Mastermind Intensive” training course. This is an upsell to everything else and it costs $500 (one time fee). According to Empower Network people paid $3,000 for this content previously.
The last product includes over 11 hours of video footage that was recorded during the event David Wood held in Costa Rica. The video training concentrates on teaching how he was able to grow his network marketing business and market himself online.
I can see how this could have value for some people but again majority will only buy it so they can resell it. If you join at the highest level you will be able to earn 100% commissions on each product you sell.
Empower Network Compensation Plan
Their compensation plan is quite lucrative because you can make 100% commission on each sale paid directly to your bank account. You can take payments by Paypal or use your own merchant account which is what I would recommend doing. There is risk involved with using Paypal because they are known to shut down people’s accounts for participating in programs like this.
The comp plan is quite simple. Everytime you sponsor someone they pay you directly. At the beginning you pass up your second, fourth, and sixth sale then every fifth from that point on.
To demonstrate how it works here is the image:
I can see how this compensation plan is attracting a lot of people to Empower Network. The 100% commissions can easily add up and if you are at the highest level then you can pocket additional payments straight to your bank account.
Empower Network Facts
As I stated above the only reason why I even consider joining Empower Network is because of their potential as an SEO tool. Thousands of members joined Empower and published content on their blog, which of course is driving a lot of traffic back to Empower domain name.
If you look up how many pages are already indexed in Google from empowernetwork.com then you will see the potential.
Currently according to Google there are over 180,000 pages indexed.
A lot of these members also get backlinks to their posts and because of that the whole thing just went viral. I have seen the Empower Network domain name rank for some very competitive keyword phrases already.
Empower Network has over 13,000 members and paid out so far over $2 million in commissions to their affiliates.
I also checked out their Alexa rankings and it confirmed my prediction that Empower might be able to stay alive for quite some time.
They are in the top 500 most visited sites in the US.
I like the graph because it shows that they are able to keep the momentum going. It’s not some overnight launch where just a few people made money and then gone forever. Because of all the content published on their blog and constant flow of backlinks they are able to funnel tons of traffic from organic search results and fuel the growth.
I wonder how it’s going to look like in a few months from now, but if this keeps up it could be a profitable opportunity to jump on while it’s still early in the game.
Can You Make Money With Empower Network?
That depends on your marketing skills. Some people join thinking they won’t have to do anything and make thousands per month. It doesn’t work like that …ever! You need to come up with a marketing plan and be able to put yourself out there.
If you already have an existing blog that gets a steady flow of traffic then you could very easily generate additional income with Empower Network.
If you know how to create high converting landing pages and you are not afraid of buying traffic then you could definitely make a profit.
On the other hand if you have no marketing experience then you could leverage the Empower Network domain name to get traffic by posting in their blog. You will still need some basic SEO knowledge, and learn how to get links that matter in order to succeed.
I think Empower Network has the potential to last a long time if people keep publishing new content on their viral blogs.
As long as people continue to post new content and get links it will continue to drive new traffic and create buzz around the opportunity.
If I was to join Empower Network I would definitely use their blogging platform to promote other affiliate offers. I like the fact that it could be marketed as an SEO tool and not as an income opportunity.
Overall, it looks like a great way to make some money fast. Most affiliate programs out there make you wait a month or sometimes even 2 months before you get your money. By joining Empower Network you can quickly recoup your advertising costs because the commissions are paid instantly to your Paypal or bank account.
Am I going to join Empower Network?
Nope, I won’t!
Quick update on this review: I wrote this review early 2012 and since then I have changed my mind about Empower Network. It’s nothing else than a biz opp that sooner or later will dry out like they all do. I am not affiliated with them and will not join it, so stop sending me emails asking to join under you! It is a pyramid scheme no matter how you look at it. People don’t join the program to learn anything, they join it to recruit others into it. That’s a classic definition of a pyramid scheme.
