Can You Really Make Money Blogging?

People are constantly talking about making money blogging.  I’ve seen moms who want to stay at home with their children out there religiously blogging about their day.  Blogging about their kids….about their lives.  People blogging about gardening…about anything and everything.

Then they come to me and say “I’m writing these blog posts daily and not making any money.  WHY??” 

Here’s a secret….

You can blog all day long and get to page one of the search engines every time, but if you don’t have any way to MONETIZE your blog, you are wasting time.  It’s just a hobby blog.

You must have something to sell.  Some way for your readers to pay you for something. 

Many bloggers sell affiliate products from places like clickbank.  Others run ads in the sidebar of their blogs from google or amazon, etc…

Here’s the problem with that…  You sell a $100 product, you might make anywhere from $5 to $25.  Rarely do you find affiliate products that pay you more than 25%.  Some of these people join a network marketing company and promote their products on the blog.  Rarely do you find a network marketing company that pays you more than 40%.  The average is around 20% to 30% on what you sell.  Even though those are good numbers, you can do better.

I help people who want to blog earn 70% to 80% EVERY time they make a sale!  That’s the absolute best payout I’ve ever seen.

FIRST…Think about something you love.  Maybe a hobby.  Maybe parenting.  Maybe traveling.  Maybe…  You get the picture.  It can be ANYTHING that others might enjoy reading about.

SECOND…Click here…watch the video and find out how you can have your own blogging system all set up for you for just $25 and make money when others sign up for the same system.

THIRD…Sign up for your blogging system today

FOURTH…Start blogging about whatever YOU want and share your posts on social spaces

FIFTH…Make money!

It’s that simple.  Notice I said simple and not effortless.  You have to put in the time and effort to write about what you love.  You have to share those posts with others.  That’s it!

Go watch the video and sign up for your system today!  I look forward to helping you get started!

What Does Empower Network Sell?

OK…here goes…I’m going to break this down for you. Many people seem to think that Empower Network is a scam because there is no physical product that they can touch, eat, put on their body, etc… Before I get into exactly what the products are, I’d like to talk to you a bit about other online products that you can’t touch. Here is just a brief list:

Kindle books
Audible audio books
Online education from Universities
Website hosting
Coach Roxanne’s online education
Any downloadable audio or ebook

In the past, socializing and network marketing were done face to face. You see someone, get in a conversation with them and introduce them to your products or business. Today, a lot of that interaction is done online.

Many traditional businesses are going out of business. Think of Borders books. They are done. No more. Very few people buy physical books anymore. They buy books they can download to their Kindles, Nooks, iPads, even their phones. Physical book stores are going out of business in record numbers.

Many jobs that existed just a few short years ago don’t exist anymore. Physical newspapers are going out of business because people now get their news and information much quicker online.

The online world is here and it’s here to stay. There is no denying that.

YOU have a choice….

Learn to roll WITH the changes or be left behind.

That is where Empower Network comes in. Two brilliant, kinda quirky guys decided to put together information products to help people who want to embrace the future. They have come up with training that will help marketers get the word out about their products or services in this new online world.

You do not have to market Empower’s products.  You can use the training and systems to market YOUR products, business opportunity or services. 

It’s way more than just a blogging system.

Prior to joining, I checked out EN and thought it was mainly a blogging system. However, I’m finding out that it’s OH SO MUCH MORE. The training that they offer is amazing. Even someone like me (I’ve been doing and teaching this stuff for years) can learn a lot from their training.

Contrary to what you see some reps doing, they teach you to NOT go out there and scream in everyone’s faces and yell about how great your business is. They teach you effective ways to get in front of people without being a slimy salesperson. Without pressuring anyone. They teach you how to have people coming to you instead of chasing after them.

Unfortunately… some just have a hard time losing their typical network marketer or slimy salesperson attitude. You know them. They are the ones that give every company out there a bad name. They are everywhere.

If you are someone who wants to learn how to market online, the Empower Network products are for you.  If you want to continue doing what you’ve always done, do me a favor and don’t join Empower Network. You won’t succeed and you will blame it on me or them. However, if you want to learn the right way to market your business online, go sign up. Go through the training.

Worst case… you sign up, do nothing and don’t continue.

Best case… you sign up, learn how to properly market your business online and make money.

If you were to buy every product Empower Network has, you would spend $ 5,100. Some MLM companies are charging that just to get in these days. I don’t suggest you jump in with every product right away. You will get overwhelmed and you will quit. Start out with the $25/mo. blogging system. Or add in the $100/mo. Inner Circle trainings. These are only products that are recurring monthly products. All others are a one time investment.  Make those investments as you go so you can learn in a step by step process.  There is no inventory loading here because you can’t buy more than one of each product.  If you want to be an affiliate and get paid when others buy EN’s products (like I do) there is an additional monthly investment for the affiliate side of it.

What are you waiting for?  It’s here for you on a silver platter.  Click here and join (ONLY if you are willing to learn and coachable).  😉  I’ll see you inside.

Empower Network…Scam? Ripoff? Find Out Here

I recently joined Empower Network after over 2 months of EXTENSIVE research on them. I had to weed through all of the trash and BS all over the internet to find the truth. Yesterday one of my facebook friends posted a link in response to a blog post I did about Empower. I am not going to give that blog backlinks, so I won’t link to it here, but I did screen shot part of that post and would like to address every point of it here. The reason I’m doing this on this blog and only linking to it on my Empower Network blog and not the other way around is because this blog is well established and posts from it get indexed in the search engines within minutes. I just began my EN blog a few days ago and it’s not yet indexed as well as this blog.

So…here goes. Here’s the screen shot, then I’ll address each point:

Let’s look at this one point at a time because, UNFORTUNATELY, anyone can say anything on the internet and there are gullible people who think if it’s on the internet, it must be true and they do no research.

  • Has all of the common attributes of a PYRAMID Scheme

This one is very interesting to me.  (BTW…CAPITALIZING a word emphasizes it but does not make it true.)  Let’s look at the definition of a pyramid scheme – This screen shot was taken from the FTC  (Federal Trade Commission) website:

FTCpyramidSchemeDefinition

I only earn a commission with Empower when I sell a product (a retail sale).  We will cover Empower Network’s PRODUCTS (see…I can use capitals too) in another bullet.  😉  the people I sell these products to do not have to become affiliates of Empower Network in order for me to make money.  If they WANT to, they certainly can, but they are not required to be affiliates.  They are, however, required to pay a monthly fee for maintaining and hosting the blog (just like any other company that sets up and hosts a blog for you).  There is no inventory loading because you can not buy more than one of each of Empower’s products (except the monthly blog fees and monthly training).

  • No clear description of what the business is about, what you will be doing or what kind of interests you need for success.

I’m not sure where they got this one.  On my PUBLIC (See…I did it again 😉 ) Empower affiliate blog (different from my personal Empower blog) there is a TON of info available to the public.  You just have to take some initiative and go through the posts.   😉

  • If you join, you have to become a ruthless sales person promoting Empower Network to others

This is a huge fallacy.  Many people DO promote EN and…just like in any other opportunity…there are always some who are over zealous and go out there screaming and hollering all over the internet.  EN actually encourages you to use their SYSTEM to promote YOUR opportunity and/or products.  They encourage you to NOT go screaming like a lunatic all over the place and simply use your blog to educate and entertain your readers based on what YOU are blogging about…whether that be EN or something else.

  • Riddled with “upsells”

Interesting…there are way less products than most affiliate or multi level opportunities.  Yes…these are products!  I’ve been making and selling courses for years.  Online universities sell courses.  Most of what I’ve learned and teach and what David Wood and David Sharpe teach is a culmination of our years of “failing forward”.  Instead of purchasing our knowledge, people are certainly welcome to spend years to learn it themselves.  No one is forced to purchase anything.  Every business needs to sell products and/or services in order to sustain itself.  Can you imagine McDonalds not asking “Do you want fries with that?”.  That is an UPSELL.  I get affiliate commissions when I sell HostGator products like hosting (see…that’s my AFFILIATE link) AND any upsells.  You can’t physically see or touch that product.  OMG…must be HostGator is a SCAM!!  Well…according to some anyway.

  • If you want to succeed, you have to invest minimum $140/mth
  • You have to PAY $20 per month just so you can get paid

I’ve been in MLM companies where you had to invest a minimum of over $200 up to $500 per month if you want to get paid.  So…??  The monthly amount is to help cover the cost of Empower hosting and maintaining your affiliate pages, back office, etc…  Again…I’ve been in MLM companies where you have to pay up to $50 per month for the company replicated websites. SO…??

  • One of the owners is located in Costa Rica (and in my opinion to avoid the FTC)

That is YOUR opinion and you are entitled to it.  MY opinion is that Costa Rica looks like a beautiful place and I just might move there some day myself.  Fortunately, people are able to do business all over the world with the internet connecting everyone.  PLUS…if they are “avoiding” the FTC, why would they put income disclaimers everywhere in writing and in video.

  • Widespread COMPLAINTS online about Empower Network

There are complaints about almost every company out there…even eBay and PayPal and Amazon and facebook, etc…  You can never please everyone.  Most of these “complaints” are from people who signed up, thought they could do nothing and expected to get paid.  That is NOT the way this works.  They obviously did not read what they signed or watch the videos that they agreed they watched.  Otherwise they would know that this is a BUSINESS and takes real effort to build.

  • No access to the owners

They are at every event just like any company owner.  Not sure how much more “access” you want…

  • No free trial

AAHHHGGGG…you got me on that one.  Darn!!  I have to give you that one.

 

 

 

How to Choose a Home Based Business

WOW…the backlash I’ve received since joining Empower Network is quite amazing!

First of all…let me tell you why I joined now and why I joined with who I did.

Just like anything else, it takes 7 – 10 exposures to something for someone to even notice that thing. I was approached by a couple Empower reps back when I was looking for a company, however, at that time, these people were so vague, I actually saw the word Empower and the logo and thought they were promoting one of the electricity things. I discount those simply for the way the reps in this area go around door to door harassing people…but that’s a whole other story…anyway…back to my story. 😉
