    i have stumble upon the empower network, and i have watched their videos, and listen to all that they have to say, it seems very legit, however i would like to know, if any one here has signed up and is it a real program to generate money, or is it just another scam?

    I signed up because the webinar pitch I was on was awesome, the sales funnel/system is impressive and worth studying/copying.

    I wasn't personally interested in anything other than the 100% commission structure and the supposed training that my downline would get from them.

    After 30 days pumping it hard i made zero sales
    So I quit

    I didn't like the fact that everyone who signs up under you has to
    check a box to pay you the commission and confirm they want you to get the payment. I thought that would effect conversions and effect my payments, can't prove it but i think I am right.

    Also they had problems with their merchant account partner, 1st data ... basically they were dropped like a hot potato and that forces everyone to lose their entire downline ... because all of the recurring billing gets automatically cancelled.

    So everyone has to call everyone in their downline and walk them through signing up again ... i've seen lots of complaints that people are only getting 20% - 50% or so of their downline to signup again. Sux.

    The trianing it self that D. Wood is selling ... from what I saw of the costa rica course its all Tony Robbins type 'mental conditioning' stuff. No meat and potatoes marketing info that you can apply to your business which is kinda what I was expecting.

    All in all I don't think it is a scam, i think it is legit but it didn't work for me working with the IM crowd. The people who seem to do well with it are MLM'rs who already have a following and a relationship with their downline.

    I joined the other day... yes it does what it advocates... David Woods is probably one of the most stand up top IM's around. Dave Sharpe has impeccable integrity also... I got a ton of lead the first week plus a few sales....

    Empower Network had over 18,000 sign ups in 3 months time which sent paypal into a over load. Since we all know how paypals feel about affiliate marketing it's no wonder... I've had to paypal merchant accounts limited / closed due to too much activity with a yound account. I say good riddance to paypal. Empower Network has their own pay out system now which is deposits to any account. The box you're referring to is to make you the sign up's sponsor but if you look at the url it's tagged with your ID so you always get the commission due...

    the salesletter should convert 1 in 4... i sent 1k targeted visitors and no sales... also they do not really explain how to get sales... they just tell you.. blog daily...tell others.. make money.. lol...it is not that easy.

    and the juice of the blog is also not getting me page one rankings..
    i think i am going to unsubscribe

    It's definitely legit. The problem for most people is that they join and they're basically on their own trying to figure out how to do things, what to do, what to use etc. I'm in a team that provides training, resources and support to be successful like weekly webinars, private facebook group and private skype group. I'll be passing my normal salary in a few months because of this and saw money come in the first 4 days personally.

    ^^ You could have at least tried making a few of your opening posts on the forum about something other than empower, you may have appeared half convincing then ;)

    I don't have to convince anyone of anything. This is my personal experience and I'm responding to someone who asked a question.

    But they asked that question over nine months ago and you responded with what seems to be the same sales tactic Empower Network sells it's members (ie: sign up under me and we'll help you out).

    That's why he's skeptical.

    What's up with all these empower network threads being started lately? Been looking a bit spammy to me.

    I DO NOT recommend empower network to ANYONE.

    Not everyone has what it takes to be successful so I agree with you. Apologies if you think I'm trying to sell to you, I'm just stating the facts in my case.

    Actually I experienced the opposite. Affiliates of Empower Network are willing to help other affiliates more likely even when they're not part of the own downline.

    But of course everybody wants a piece of the pie.

    In my opinion if you dont know how to get traffic then you shouldnt even comment about EN. On the other hand if you at least know hot to get enough traffic to get 2-4 sales a week on any affiliate network then I recommend you try out EN. I was getting untargeted traffic about a clickbank product which was getting me 2-4 sales week with clickbank. The most I made with cb was $375 in one day. I simply changed the links to EN to test it out and it works, I've been getting 3-6 sales per week and I've already had my first $500 day. I HIGHLY recommend it to any one who REALLY knows how to drive lots of traffic etc.. But for newbies, stay away from it unless the team can show you what they do.

    The Empower Network is a good way to make money, you only get out of it what you put in, i found if you put in the work then you will get results and if you dont try you wont see results , its really the same with any sort of Opportunity , but empower network does give you a little boost.

    I joined EN couple of months ago, get all-in and checked that out very deeply.

    After that period of time I discovered very cool tactics and strategies. Some of them are FREE, the other paid.

    As you see I still didn't quit so I have to say it works but you really need to work.

    In the end of the day, it's not only about Empower but all business opportunities where you need to put some effort.

    In fact, when you are in good team like Prosperity Team where they give you trainings every day there's really no room for error.

    Believe me or not, but joining any online biz such as Empower Network is better than sitting on the couch and watching telly.

    It's up to you my friend but I think it can improve your skills, anyway. So you have nothing to loose.

    In my honest opinion this is just another pyramid scheme set out to make no one money except the actual creators of it.

    Not this crap again. :(

    The site has traded hands too many times to even be considered worth anyone's time. A good sales pitch is all it takes :)
