Passive Income – Empower Network
As part of my series on passive income it is time to look at Empower Network. Unless you have not been online for the last 10 months you will have no doubt heard of Empower Network. You may have joined Empower Network or you may not like the concept at all but no doubt you know their presence.
What is Empower Network?
Empower Network is a direct sales model rather than a Network Marketing company. It has an affiliate program and has what they refer to as a “dynamic powerline” system. I will explain more on that later.
At the time of writing this review they have 2 subscription type products. One is $25 a month for a blogging system. The other is The Inner Circle Membership which is core ongoing training and is $100 a month.
There are currently two other products which are one time purchases. One is called the Costa Rica Intensive and is 12 hours of recording of a mastermind retreat.
The other one time purchase is called The $15K per month Formula. There are 9 recorded webinars with essential training for online success to take you to earning $15,000 a month. The cost of the product is $1,000. The teaching is done by many successful marketers and some of the webinars are up to 3 hours long.
To be an affiliate there is also a monthly cost of $19.95. This fee covers the eWallet processing costs which every affiliate must set up.
What are the goals of Empower Network?
Empower Network was founded and is owned by David Wood and David Sharpe. They have two stated goals in their official affiliate documentation. These are:
- To help you make more money in your existing business, by giving you tools, training, coaching and systems that work with your personality to help you get results, reduce costs, and live a more empowered life.
- To help provide you with a way to create leveraged affiliate income from marketing our systems, tools and trainings to help people in the Direct Sales, Network Marketing, and online marketing niche succeed more in their business. To do this, we have created a system that distribute earnings on a potential 100% commission on the total purchase price of the product being sold, for all of our core product line.
Where does the Passive Income come from in Empower Network?
There are two subscription products one $25 and the other $100 per month. To be paid for a sale in Empower Network you must own the product you sell. Let’s assume you do own these two products, then the first sale you make for each of these will cover your monthly outgoings. After that you are in profit and as long as the people you have sold to keep paying you get paid.
The other two products are one off sales. Once you have sold one of each you have recovered your initial purchase. From there you start to make a profit.
Now I did mention earlier I would come back to the “dynamic powerline” system. Empower Network have a 14 page PDF explaining it so I will do my best to explain it briefly.
Basically there are pass ups to your sponsor. So the first sale I make comes to me – 100% commission. The second, forth and sixth sales I make go to my sponsor and after that each fifth sale goes to my sponsor.
This system applies to each product in Empower Network. Okay you are passing up your commission but so will you receive pass ups from people you bring in. Over time this adds up as witnessed by some of the incomes the top earners in Empower Network are making.
So you can see even with the one off sales you may over time start to get pass ups from people you have brought into Empower Network which can really add up.
Do people have success in Empower Network?
Absolutely! There are people making significant incomes. While most of these people earning top incomes are seasoned internet marketers there are stories of some earning their first online dollars of any substance. Also there are newbies to online marketing doing well.
Empower Network – the ups and the downs
Empower Network started in October 2011. They grew very quickly and like any company with fast growth there were teething problems Their initial merchant facility pulled the plug as they could not cope with the volumes. I joined in November and there was no payment system for anyone outside of the USA.
Then their servers crashed big time and many bloggers lost their posts. More recently Facebook stopped their links from being shared and shut down several Empower Groups.
No matter what has been thrown at these guys however they find a solutions. They keep going.
While I did join Empower Network I have had my doubts along the way. What kept me in there even when I could not market it because I am Australian was the calibre of the the people it attracted. I wrote why I joined here Why I Joined Empower Network.
The other benefit is it is a sales machine. The capture pages are highly converting and once someone is in the system there is an up-sell process with good results.
Some people are offended by the swearing that the owners often do, for me I can see past that and see they have great hearts.
