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.

Is MLM a Real Business?

The short answer…YES!!  There have been many, many people who have become millionaires working an MLM business.

If you aren’t sure what MLM is, read my earlier post here.

The longer answer for those of you who don’t want to just take my word for it ;-)

An MLM business and a traditional “brick & mortar” business are very similar and very different.  They are both “real” businesses.  However, one is easier to start and can be worked from wherever you are and the other is harder to start and has to be worked from a physical location.  Obviously MLM is the one where you do not have to be in a physical location to work it.  I know a woman who was homeless and started an MLM business.  She is now a multi millionaire.

Let’s look at this one at a time. 

 

First – Traditional (brick & mortar) business:

  • According to the Small Business Administration, the average cost of starting a new business from scratch is just over $30,000.
  • You (business owner) are basically on your own figuring out your business model unless you start a franchise.   (The average cost of starting a franchise is around $100,000)
  • You need to lease or buy an actual building
  • You will most likely need to hire employees
  • The average owner of a traditional business works at least 60 hours per week
  • Experts estimate that 50 to 80 percent of all new traditional businesses do not make a profit for the first 5 years.
  • A traditional business takes money, time and effort to build

 

Next – MLM business:

  • The average MLM business start up costs are $500 or less
  • You are in business for yourself, but not BY yourself.  There is a whole team of people to help you.
  • You work your business from wherever you live
  • You do not need to hire employees.  You will need to look for business partners.
  • The average MLM business owner works 20 or less hours per week.
  • You can begin making a profit within a month or two with MLM
  • An MLM business takes money, time and effort to build.  If you have more time than money, then you can spend that time instead of spending more money.

 

In conclusion…YES…YES…YES…MLM is a real business.
