Empower Network vs Level One Network

I’ve been approached by reps of both Empower Network and Level One Network recently.  I see a lot of Empower and Level One reps posting on facebook, twitter, pinterest, etc…

I decided to take a glance at both companies.  They both claim to have a blogging system that gets indexed into the search engines quickly and easily.  So…me being me…I tested that theory.  I went to Level One Network’s home page and picked a couple of the bloggers on page one to test with.  I also went to Empower Network’s facebook page and couple of the more interactive people there and went to their blogs.

So, at this point, I’m using two random blogs from Level One and two random blogs from Empower.  This should be a fair test.  I looked for posts on each blog where the titles had nothing to do with either company.  I know that when I write a post, I can generally google the title within hours and have it show up on page one of the results.  When searching for the titles of these four blogs, I found something very interesting.

NEITHER the Empower blogs nor the Level One blogs were showing up on page one of the results.  What I did find is a bunch of Level One reps bashing Empower on their blogs and on social spaces.  I also found that every blog from each company looks just like the other.  I always say “Brand YOURSELF…not some company”.  With these companies, however, in order to take advantage of their search engine positioning (if they really have any) you must have your blog be TheirCompayURL.yourusername.com  You are not really branding yourself, you are branding THEM.

What is looks like to me is the reps from each company are competing with other reps from that company for the search engine results when people search for the company name.  However, posts about something OTHER than the companies aren’t even on the radar.  Maybe later down the road I will be able to do more research and have something concrete to report for those of you who want a blogging company like this that works.  SEO is not a “set it and forget it” thing.  It takes work to get your blog to page one of the search engine results.  It doesn’t happen overnight.  Whether you are using a blog from one of these companies or your own blog, you need to do the work.  Just like I taught in my blogging courses, there are a number of things you need to do to get listed in the search engines and maintain those listings.

Maybe one of these companies can make it a bit easier, but I don’t see it at this time.  I was actually hoping that I could promote one or the other of these systems to my readers who don’t want to start from scratch.

The opinions here are MINE.  They are opinions and my personal conclusions.  I did not do an in depth study, just took a cursory look based on the claims of both companies.

I will review more when I have more time.

UPDATE – 7 minutes later, MY blog post (THIS ONE) was listed first on page two of a google search.  Very interesting.  Page 2 of about 5,530,000 results. (Click the image below to see full size.)

Just 7 minutes after writing my post, I was ranking high for my post.

Blogging With WordPress Class

One of the aspects of Social Space marketing that I suggest you take advantage of is blogging.  Blogging is an important part of social marketing.

The biggest decision you have to make is where to blog.  Some have started out with blogger.com.  I recommend a WordPress blog hosted on your own site.  The reason I recommend this is because you control your blog.  If you use one of the free blogging platforms, the cost is great, but you get what you pay for.  THEY control your site.  You do not.  If they don’t like what you are blogging about, they can shut it down.  You could wake up one day and your entire blog could be gone.

But setting up a WordPress blog isn’t something that just anyone can do, right?  WRONG

On Sunday, February 17, 2013 at 2 pm EST, I will be doing a webinar on Blogging With WordPress.

What we will cover:

Installation on your hosted URL
How to choose the best theme (layout)
Optimization for search engines
Best plugins to use
Blogging terminology
The very important backlinks.  What they are and how to get them
What to blog about
How to get traffic to your blog

By the end of the class you will be able to have a fully functioning blog up and running and you will know what to blog about and how to get traffic to your blog.

All of this for the very low investment of just $37

THIS CLASS HAS ALREADY TAKEN PLACE.  YOU ARE ORDERING THE RECORDING.  We packed a lot of great info into this class.  It’s 2 1/2 hours plus a bonus recording will be done during the week.




Do You REALLY Have to Spend Money to Make Money?

Those of you who know me know that I think most of what is online is scams.  I am NOT impressed by a lot.  And I am a firm believer in not spending much money to make money, which is why I keep my courses priced low.

A few days ago I stumbled across something that blew my mind.

A brilliant online marketer started an online contest.  He gives people everything they need to make money online.  Step by step, day by day instructions, resources, sales copy, everything you need to be successful.  And he’s NOT CHARGING FOR IT until after you start making money.

WHAT??

Who would do such a thing?  Who would give away a huge coaching program and allow people to use it for 30 full days and begin making money BEFORE they paid?

Someone who has an amazing program and a proven track record at helping people make money online. It’s brilliant.

And the best part…this program will work for anyone whether you are a newbie or seasoned marketer.  I teach marketing and I’m learning a lot!!

If you want access to the same thing I’ve found, fill out the form below then after you confirm your interest, you will be able to hear from this marketing genius himself and decide whether you want to take advantage of this amazing offer.  If nothing else, take advantage of the offer for the 30 days of great coaching and resources.
