Dissecting The Empower Network

Is the Empower Network a Scam?

So what the hell is the Empower Network anyways? Is it another business worth investing in, or another fly by night internet scam?

After you go through this post, all of your questions will be answered, and you’ll know the next steps you need to take to start making more $ on the internet.

So is the Empower Network a scam or a pyramid scheme?

Absolutely not.  In its first year, it brought on over 60,000 customers from all over the world, the products are top of the line, and people only get paid from the sale of products.

Is the Empower Network a ‘Get Rich Quick’ Scheme?

Empower Network is NOT a get rich quick scheme either.  A lot of people have gotten rich quickly using the marketing system, but that doesn’t mean that you will.  After you join me in the Empower Network, you will get paid by the sale of products.

Products don’t magically dance around the internet and pull credit cards out of people’s wallets to make them take action and buy stuff from you.

You still will need to sell products.  Its easy, and we teach you how to do it on autopilot; you just need to get started and take action.

If you want something for nothing, then go join a Ponzi Scheme(Empower Network is NOT a Ponzi).  Ponzi Schemes don’t pay you on the sale of products.  They give imaginary money to investors to make them think it is working, until the entire business collapses.  I did a good write up on Ponzi Schemes here if you want to understand more about them.

Welcome to EmpowerNetworkPimp.com

I built this Empower Network niche site for you to do the following things:

  • Answer all of your questions: I’ve literally been putting everything that you could need to know to investigate the Empower Network all in a ‘one stop shop.’ Go through the top tabs, read through the blog posts, and use the search feature on the sidebar. Its all here, and if you have a question that needs answering, leave it in the comments of one of the pages on this site and I’ll answer it.
  • Provide Exclusive Training: I’ve done tons of training here that will help anyone with their Empower Network business, or even just help you if you were looking to make more money on the internet. I will probably be charging for my blog training in the future, because it is that damn good. Enjoy it while it is free, and enter your email in the sidebar to get more exclusive training delivered to your inbox.

What are the Empower Network Products?

For a more detailed breakdown, hit the ‘Product Line’ tab at the top of this blog.  The short version is simple, we have 2 types of products, Systems, and Training.

1. Viral Blogging Marketing System:  The name says it all.  Most people suck balls at creating a good blog that is attractive, runs fast, and is optimized to make money with a funded proposal right out of the box.  For $25 per month, it is a steal.

2. Training and Motivation Products:  We have the best marketing training the industry has to offer, and the cost of each product is way less than what they are worth.  Go to the Empower Network Product Line Page for more details.

How Much Does it REALLY Cost?

I know, $25 per month sounds almost too good to be true, doesn’t it?

Well, let me lay it to you straight.  You will need 3 things to start making money with the Empower Network:

  1. The Viral Blogging System: $25/Month – get paid 100% commissions for re-selling all of our products
  2. Affiliate Resale Rights: $19.95/Month – comes with an ewallet that transfers your commissions to your bank
  3. Third Party Autoresponder: $19/Month – Fortune is in the follow up, you are not going to make a whole lot of $ without this.  Your first month is a $1 trial.

That’s it; $45.95 your first month, and then $63.95 per month to keep your business running.  There are other products that I recommend you get, and you will make a lot more money if you do, but that is all you need as a minimum.

I have the prices and description of all of the other products on the Product Line page.

How Much Do I Get Paid?

100% Commissions.

Yes, that is right, 100% of the profits are paid back out to the reps.  I’ll explain this in greater detail when I cut a new video on the compensation plan.  Lets just say that if you are making sales, it is VERY easy for you to make your money back and more, very quickly.

Why Should I Take Action Now?

The Empower Network is still in its early phases of development, and it is exploding all over the world.  Per the nature of it, the opportunity will always be good, but likely NEVER as good as it is right now.

We’ve proven over the last year that the model works, and we have paid out millions in commissions.  Now that the skeptics have been silenced, and the major bugs worked out of the system, we are building the foundation to an empire together.

It’s OUR turn now.

Please feel free to leave any questions or comments below.

Build Your Empower Network Empire,

P.S. Seriously, I’m a real guy with a family that cares about your success.  I got into this line of business in the first place because I saw a legitimate way that I could make a lot of money by helping other people make money.

    Great post Aki. I am also in the Empower Network myself and I have to say that this is best direct sales company in the world. We get paid 100% commissions, we have freedom of speech and the founders of this company created it not for themselves, but for the people. The Empower Network is the real deal.

    • Aki

      Well said Steve. The best part about it is that it keeps getting better. Occasionally there is a critic that has a good point or two(not very often). The great part about it is that my brother and David Sharpe actually listen to the concerns(yes, even the critics) and are constantly trying to make it better.

      The only reason not to join now and get started is you simply want to do something else. It is the real deal, and I’m proud to be promoting something I can believe in.

    I’ll be honest, when this program first came out, I really though it was going to go down like so many other new companies.
    So far, I’ve been wrong. One year later and it is still here. Do you really think it is going to be around for a long time though Aki?


    • Aki
      3 years ago

      Well Ralph, I don’t have a ‘crystal ball,’ but the proof is in the pudding. Empower Network had a lot of problems in the first year, but overcame all of them. My brother David, and the other company owner David Sharpe, and all of us leaders will do everything that we can to make sure that it will be.

      Everything is being done right to make sure that EN will be here not just next year, but 100 years from now. If you understood the vision, you would be promoting it as hard and fast as you can, because even though we had a good first year, you haven’t seen ANYTHING yet.

    Hi Aki,

    I own 16 domain names, and have for while. I must have some sort of block on why I haven’t really got them up and running yet. Whatever, that doesn’t matter. Maybe my subconscious has been waiting for something like this to come along? Anyways, what I want to know is this: If I own the domain names, do you have code that I could just pop into all the sites that I could then just use them all for building my business?

    • Aki
      3 years ago

      Hey Cory, I’m just seeing your comment now. I think we talked about this, but yes, there are some ways you should be able to use those domain names.

      Probably the best thing to do is to log into the back office of where you bought them from(godaddy, hostgator, or whatever), and use the forwarding feature to send people to the capture pages and join pages that are already in the system for you.

      That will give your links and ‘easy to remember’ look that is easier to share with people.

    Hi there Steve. I have seen a few ads for EN now, and I know I would be amazing at it. I was the top seller for PC Financial in my area, in fact I did so well and made so much commission than the others in my team they believed I had to be cheating somehow. I now work for HP and do very well with sales, and I have tried quite a few of these MLM type companies, such as Visalus, ACN, Primerica, and a few others. My concern is this business sounds too good to be true, I read about it and well to be honest it sounds like a joke, I think it will be huge if it is all true, and I could be quite successful at it. However, with the other companies I have tried not achieving their perceived reputation, I must admit I am a huge skeptic now, and the thought of “too good too be true” comes to mind frequently. I’m also broke, barely making it by, so for me the 65 a month you are talking about actually sounds like a tonne of money. The reason I am posting on your site is for a few reasons, you sound like a no bullshit type guy, which is good, and your brother is the CEO so I would imagine you would be quite knowledgeable with the business and its operations. My question is I am not very familiar with website or ad creation, so I am curious as to how to post these ads. I am assuming all my questions would be answered in the training, but being broke that 65 a month is half my food for the month if I make little or nothing, so hoping some light can be shed before I have to start. To post on Facebook or other similar sites do you post these ads with embedded code or something like HTML? Or are you required to create websites and ads for yourself? I am quite tech savvy from working for HP, previously working for Apple, ACN and other similar types of technological jobs, but haven’t ever really created or manipulated websites, so that’s a huge concern of mine.

    • Aki

      The Empower Network is legit. The reason that it sometimes “sounds too good to be true” is that it was built with the intention in mind to be what we always wanted to be a part of.

      We actually bounced around through some different companies in the past as well, and there were pros and cons to each of them. We took the best stuff and wrapped it into one package.

      When you join with me, I do have training that I will plug you into that will help with the tech stuff. As far as posting ads goes, if you’re budget is starting out that low, your initial efforts should be focused on free advertising methods.

      I’ll be honest…

      It takes a lot more work to do things that way.

      It is like I said in the article above.

      Making money online is actually a simple formula:

      Drive traffic ==> High Converting Offer ==> Get Money

      Empower is a high converting offer. It is still up to individual reps to drive eyeballs to the offer, because that is what creates sales. My personal team has daily marketing training that I will be able to plug you into, plus a lot of other resources that we provide to you for no additional cost.

      I recommend to get started and work like crazy to create a story of triumph. You will have a website when you get started, so no, you don’t need to create one. I have created some of my own, but that is just another way to scale out marketing.

      There are many roads up the mountain.

      If I were in your shoes, I would get started on my team, and work like crazy on every free marketing strategy that I could find to create a story. Stories like that sell like crazy, but yes, you’ve got to put in the work to make it happen.

      I’ll plug you into the daily marketing training once you get going.

    Hey Aki*
    I’ve been checking out your website and empower network for a few days now & getting really excited about it! But… also wondering what happens after i pay the $25, would there be more costs? So, finally, after watching your funny videos and reading lots of pages, i find this page that tells me I do have to pay more on the other side of the $25 button.
    Hmmmph, it kinda burst my bubble. $25 WAS too good to be true. I’m pretty broke right now working in the healing business helping people, so honestly, i’m rubbish at internet marketing, haven’t got a clue. I want to join in & learn & have fun but don’t want to have to fork out $$$ for months before i make anything. So will the $46 investment be enough to get me going really well, or is it more like to make proper money i need to get the $997 deal? And why don’t you say £46 instead of $25?! Don’t trick people. Be more honest. Love.

    • Aki
      3 years ago

      Lol, we’ve talked about all of this by now Tara :) Just in case anyone else is wondering about this at this point, I’ll answer these questions from when Tara got started(I got really behind in responding to comments here)

      1. I mention the other necessary start up costs in the post above.
      2. I’ve given the same response somewhere else in the comments, but I’ll reiterate. Yes, you can make money coming in at the $25 level with no budget, it just takes a lot more work. I view that level as having a hobby where you can learn a lot and make some extra money along the way. To have a serious business, with massive earning potential, you should buy all of the products at least up to the $997 one.
      3. As far as currency conversions go, we are talking about American money because that is where the company is based.

    Hey again Aki, I was being a wussy. Done MLM before, and like you worked hard for years and made NOT MUCH! I’ve gone ahead and signed up anyway, as as soon as i have enough in my account i’m gonna join the inner circle. I like you guys. I do trust you. I am HAPPY :) to be led and learn from you. Bless

    Hey Aki,
    Nice story. As I was reading your comment section, I came across a man named James. He is like so many other people I know that are struggling with online marketing. When using the so called “free sites” it is extremely hard to make any money. Been there and done that. I made zero at that. When using paid advertising I.E. Ppc or another, I lost my butt. If your on an extreme budget, how can you make any money? It would appear that if you have money, you can make money. If you’re broke, your more likely to stay broke. With no experience in Internet marketing or being some sore of guru and posssess the Internet knowledge, your not going to get anywhere. Aside from beg, borrow or steal, how does one not loose their butt which trying? I’m not being negative at all, I am just posting a very true fact that often occures with newbe’s. I had an online business and I worked my butt off from the get go. Did all the training and was on all training calls and all I ever heard was someone stating “purchase this new training, go after google” yadda yadda yadda. I heard a person stating that they were completely broke. Zero money and now he’s in a 6000 sq ft home making over 6 figures a year. Really, how did that broke man with zero income get there? I asked that question and you know what, not one person could or would answer me! That’s the most frustrating thing ever. While I don’t look at EN as some sort of scam, I truly believe that EN is powerful, you can’t make really good money at the $25 level making 100% commissions when selling the training materials. One has to all in in order to make great and I do mean great money. So with you telling James to join and you’ll get all the training to get you started, you left out thatbone important detail that I just pointed out. You say your a “no bullshit guy” well, I’m a “no bullshit Italian woman” who likes 100% honesty and everything upfront. When I asked a few questions with a top earner with EN, I was told I was being negative. In my mind, that is not a leader. give me and anyone who may be reading this, that one good honest stand out look on why someone with zero money should join EN. Aki, I really look forward to your response. Please email me anytime. Make it a great successful day. Ciao!

    • Aki

      Shell, I don’t think you are being negative, but the way you are phrasing things is a poverty mentality. The truth is that there are very few people that are so broke that they simply can’t find a way to come up with a budget to buy more than just the $25 product. That is another story though.

      To answer the main part of your question, I am on a team where a group of 40 leaders have come together to provide extra training that is unlocked with every single product purchase in our team system. You can do this when you are broke, with no advertising budget, if you are willing to work your ass off and do whatever it takes. It is one hell of a lot harder to do it when you are broke, you just have to know exactly WHY you want it and be hungry enough to be willing to do whatever it takes.

      My team also provides daily marketing training, just for joining at the $25 level. There are daily action assignments to go along with that training, most of which are free.

      My brother(the company founder) had no money when he got started. He worked his butt off doing free marketing with ALL of his free time and made it work in 3 months. Now he makes around $500K per month.

      That is NOT a guarantee of income, and that is NOT a typical result. The truth is stories like that happen when people want it bad enough, and go out there knowing that they are going to do whatever it takes.

      When people “Hope” it is going to work, it probably won’t.

      I do my part to provide the resources, so I have no problem telling anyone that if they want it, they should join. If I don’t do that, I may be robbing them of their own amazing story, and I can tell you “No Bullshit” that EN is the best damn thing I’ve ever seen out there.

      Even a broke person has everything they need to succeed sitting right between their ears.

      “No bullshit.”

    Hi Aki,
    I like your explanations more in detail about this business here… My question is , can i run this business on automated level… And that other people can repeat same sheme, and how much does this cost, advertising that makes sales ? i know its about form 100 clicks 2 clicks have some interests in product,targeted visitors…

    If i am right to run this business is enough get 2 people and powerline is going to work.. so Looking in long term reality,its a team work, and advertising cost can be splited… it is much better that referals get referals , than me get 100 persons under me… folowing powerline…

    So monthly spendinngs: ~$70 to setup… and how much for advertising ? that is enough converts at least first 2 sales that makes business run … Aki thanks , i know this is not simple to learn to become good seller, as i was … promoting will take to much time to learn for everybody,… so better i wanna know or its posible to run on autopilot, that the very old 70 year Grandmother can run this easy :)) waiting for reply if posible mail me to email

    • Aki

      What is going to get you sales is driving traffic to the capture pages and having an automated email response series set in place, and doing regular email broadcasts to your leads as you build your list.

      How you drive traffic is completely up to you. There are free methods and paid methods of driving traffic. If you are only in at the $25 level, I would NOT recommend doing paid advertising. When doing paid advertising you have to look at the lifetime value of a customer. I might spend more than $25 to get a $25 sale, because I know that my LTV of a customer is currently around $600 or $700 and rising. I recommend people stick to free marketing methods unless they at least have all of the products up to the 15K Formula($1625 one time, then $125/month for the basic and inner circle).

      At that point you have all of the training you need to do paid ads, and you’ll be able to profit from upsells on the backend.

      To answer your other question, you want to produce, and then work with your producers. The “2 get 2 who get 2″ sale in MLM is a bunch of bullshit. It just doesn’t work that way.

    I just have a question. I want to do a blog or other means of promoting another online business that my wife and I are doing. I have been reading and reading about EN but it is not clear to me if I can successfully promote another business or other links with blogging with EN.

    I did not intend to find a whole new revenue source which it seems like EN is – ie mainly promoting and selling EN products.

    Any feedback on this?


    • Aki
      3 years ago

      You could just come in as a customer if you wanted and even set up your blog in a way that took away the links that sell Empower. So yes, you could do that. If it were me, I would get started, become an affiliate, promote my own products, drive traffic, and let Empower soft sell itself. As far as a blog goes, it runs fast as hell, and the platform keeps getting better.

    I have been looking at a few EN videos and I am very interested. Now I think I need to narrow down the best group to join. I have a nonprofit and in the process of finishing up a few children books I have written. I would like to know will I be able to use what I learn at EN to market my business and become a household brand. Oh and yes I would like to earn money while at EN…lol
    Starting at the $25 level will it really generate money???? So far I am really liking your approach on EN.

    • Aki
      3 years ago

      Hi Nikita. Yes, you could definitely use EN to promote your children’s books, or anything else that you want to sell. Yes, you can make money at the $25 level, it will just be a lot harder. I basically look at it like this:

      At the $25 level, you have a hobby where you can learn a lot and earn some extra money along the way. To have a serious business with real money making potential, you need to buy all of the products up to the 15K per month formula(A total of $1625 upfront, and then $145/month).

      There are a lot of good teams out there, I think the best one to join is the one I am on. We have an additional team system that unlocks extra training and bonuses at every level you join at, AND has pre-built sales funnels done for you and more. Hope that helps.

    Hi Aki –
    I have considered joining EN for a little while to help promote my website and I wondered if the Buzz Burner wordpress plugin works on an EN blog? what plugins can I use and what can I not. I love WP but where are the limitations with an EN wordpress blog? Thanks!

    • Aki

      Buzz Burner would not. The EN blog comes with all of the major plugins that you would need. Because of the type of platform EN is, the blogs are not set up to install custom plugins.

    Hey Aki,
    I am brand new to online marketing but have been spending the past week up late studying it. It seems like a great field to get into and now I have run into Empowered Network and you. I am looking into joining Empowered Network, but before I jump in and join, I need to make sure I don’t just join under someone who will hand me a book and walk away. I believe you can not teach anything unless you have yourself experienced it. I am looking for someone who I can create a relationship with, and build a family, to help even more people. To be able to do this, I need a mentor who has achieved this status and can show me how to help others reach their goals. Researching your posts and information, it seems as if you may be someone I am looking for to create this family with me. I would love to talk more with you about Empowered Network and how we can help each other and discover the roots to my goal. Send me an email if you get a chance, even if you can not help me, so I can learn more about Empowered Network! Thank you and have a great day!

      Yes Vince, I do provide a lot of help and support for people. Most of it is automated through our team systems, but when people are sincerely working, and are taking their business seriously, I will step in and help them personally where I can.

      You’ll find that our team systems that we have put together as the leaders of the Prosperity Team, plus additional trainings that I do, will help a lot on your journey. Ultimately, your success will always be up to you, but when you run, we run with you.


This video doesn't really have to do with anything, but I think it is awesome. You should watch it while you're here:

If you know anything about the Empower Network, you are probably wondering why I am posting articles here when I have my replicated Viral Blogging System.

Well, if you are wondering that, you probably are either not 'All In' with the Empower Network, or at least have not been through the Niche Blog training in the 15K Per Month Formula.

Also, I do post on my Empower Network Blog, several times a day, but I basically have some awesome robots that do it for me.

Seriously, Click Here, and I will show you how I post blogs and get sales on autopilot, without writing a damn thing. It's pretty awesome to have robots doing work for you.

I love Robots.

Anyways, I imagine that you are on this page because you are looking into the Empower Network.

Honestly, you should just join already, and go 'All In' if you can. My brother, David Wood, owns the company. I'll take good care of you, but I will only work with you if you are serious about changing your life, and making more money.

Welcome to the Family my friend,

-Aki Wood 'The Empower Network Pimp'
