Debunking the Myths of Empower Network
In my last post on the elusive 4 hour work week I talked about the need to focus. I have decided to focus the majority of my time on building one solid source of income in 2013. My choice is Empower Network.
The purpose of this post is to explain my reasons and to debunk some of the myths that are out there around Empower Network. If you are not familiar with Empower Network I have details about it at Passive Income – Empower Network.
Why Empower? I am not ready to do my own products and decided I wanted to build my income up this year. I see many people in Empower Network earning very nice incomes while I have been sitting on the sidelines licking my wounds over my rocky beginning with them. Yes they had enormous teething problems when they started but one by one Dave and Dave over came them. I have learned to have so much respect for their leadership and vision.
Why Empower? I like many things about it but mostly they have awesome training. I feel it is a place where even if a person is new online they can follow the training and learn. I like their culture and the fact there are many top internet marketers in there who are willing to share their knowledge. I also like 100% commissions. Not many places you can get that!
In fact there is an experienced internet marketer who joined Empower mid December. I heard him interviewed last week. He said he had been watching for a year before he put his name to it. He said once they had overcome Merchant issues, Website issues and more he was convinced they were strong. He is his first 19 days with Empower Network made $528,000.
I did say he was experienced so of course that is far from normal. He brought with him some very loyal followers. He put his reputation behind it after observing for a year. He said this was what he wanted to focus on for 2013 because he believes it is the best place to help people get results.
Now to some of the myths or common perceptions I have heard and read.
Empower Network teaches people to spam their links everywhere. – Not true. Sure it happens but it is not what is being taught. Far from what is being taught. There are a lot of spammers out there and unfortunately some of them joined Empower.
I do not want to blog everyday. - It is one of the Core Commitment of Empower Network that they say you should blog daily. Now the truth is not everyone even uses their blog. I heard one top earner say recently when he was teaching his method of Solo Ads that he has not used the blog and has no intention of doing so. He does Solo Ads only.
What is being taught in Empower is when you are starting out to blog daily and use social media to build relationships until you have the funds to do paid marketing. Some experienced marketers have come in and started with paid methods only.
It is not a proper blog and people are not being taught how to blog. – True it is a limited version of WordPress with not as much ability to do things like we can do on our own blogs. The upside is that it is all set up for you and it costs only $25 a month to host and maintain.
There are products in Empower Network that have the most awesome blogging training I have seen. When someone starts out if they cannot afford the products most groups offer their own training. Many of the leaders have got together to provide training.
I belong to the Prosperity Group and the training in that is from basic to advanced in blogging. And it is free as long as you are in Empower Network and join EZ Money Method. If your are in Empower and not getting training and support from your sponsor check it out on my link here EZMM.
You are not branding yourself – this is a big one and one I must confess I was concerned about. Then I decided I am not quitting my Sue J Price blog. Most of the big names in Empower Network still have their own blog or website. If anything they are getting way more exposure because they all teach on calls, webinars and some of the products that are being sold. They get huge exposure through Empower Network.
It is a Cult? – I love that one! I guess to some degree it is but is that bad? It is no different than any MLM I have been around. The culture encourages people to be themselves. There are people from all walks of life and parts of the globe. There are people in their teenage years right up to people in their 80′s. I love it!
Their training is excellent. They are remaking one of their products titled The $15K Formula. It is a series of webinars with the best training I have ever seen from beginners to advanced on how to build a business online.
The training can be applied to any business you want to do on the internet not just Empower Network.
Some of my best online friends are not fans of Empower Network. This post is not to convert anyone I merely wanted to share my reasons for what I am doing this year.
And of course if you are thinking about joining I would love to partner with you so here is my join link.
