Created by entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs, Empower Network is a "plug and play" viral blogging and marketing system modeled after creator David Wood's own personal blog. The idea of Empower Network has been in the works nearly a year and was developed out of David's own desire to earn extra income. See, although he was already generating a substantial amount (somewhere around $30k a month), he knew that the only way he would be able to earn more was to help his team earn extra income as well.
1. Website: Empower Network eliminates the need for web hosting, graphic designers, and an advanced knowledge that is generally required for self hosted blogs. Speaking from experience, 95% of the time I spent in the very beginning was in the "how-tos" - so much so that I rarely put any content out because I was always designing, and although I gained some GREAT skills, I missed out on a ton of opportunity to generate consistent readers thereby growing my list.
2. Traffic: Most people really do believe "If you build it they will come" and when it comes to the internet and blogging, that's just not the way it happens. There are SO many sites out there offer information the average person becomes overwhelmed after looking at the first page of Google. If you don't possess an in depth knowledge of SEO or least have the resources to outsource this task all your hard work may be for not. You'll blog for a few months, not generate much of a response (if any) and quit, or at best lose your level of consistency.
3. Conversions: So you have a blog, the design is everything you want it to be. Your SEO game is on point - you've dominated keywords, on page, off page, backlinks - EVERYTHING! Your email autoresponder is going crazy with new leads and yet.... you still haven't made any sales and if you have it's not enough to write home about. The reality is, even if you master getting traffic to your site, in order to make money by blogging you have to know how to convert your traffic into sales - a skill very few of us in the home based industry actually possess.
4. Commissions: We've all been here - You sign up for a business opportunity eyes wide shut. "This is it! This is the one!" you say to yourself. You call your mom, dad, spouse, ex-spouse, aunts, uncles, cousins, friends.... everyone. A couple sign ups come in and you think "Yes! This is the check I'm gonna show off to all the naysayers on Facebook!" The check comes in the mail - it's heavy. You rip open the envelope, pull it out.... and it's $50... or maybe it's $100. This can't be right? You should AT LEAST have $500. So you call your upline and they call their upline (b/c they don't really understand the comp plan either), eventually you're referred to the back office where you find that little piece of fine print: In order to qualify you must have one on the left, one on the right, two under the right, one under the left, 3 under them, turn around, touch your toes, do the Hokey Pokey and Cha Cha Slide all at once to receive what you thought was money in the bank. I'll be the first to say I've been there... mad as all get out and to make things worse now your rep is ruined with your warm market beacuase what they received was worse than you.
