Empower Network provides marketing training, information products and a blogging platform. They “claim” to help you make a substantial income online without having to go through all the scams that so many fall into when trying to create an online business. I have researched them and decided to post this Empower Network Review to educate you so you can make an informed decision before paying any money.
This is your basic network marketing/multi-level marketing (MLM) business model.
Companies that use MLM models for compensation have been a frequent subject of criticism and lawsuits. Criticism has focused on their similarity to illegal pyramid schemes, price fixing of products, high initial entry costs (for marketing kit and first products), emphasis on recruitment of others over actual sales, encouraging if not requiring members to purchase and use the company’s products, exploitation of personal relationships as both sales and recruiting targets, complex and exaggerated compensation schemes, the company and/or leading distributors making major money off training events and materials, and cult-like techniques which some groups use to enhance their members’ enthusiasm and devotion.

Empower Network Review – What they do for you
They have what they call Blog Beast, which is their blogging and is part of your signup fee. They include information products to teach you how to make money online with their blogging platform. You then sell these products to others and receive commissions.
It is a viral blogging technique that used to be all the rage but Google does not rank these high anymore. Google is looking for unique content not re-hashed content from site to site.
What Was Viral Blogging Before Google Stopped Liking It?
Viral blog platforms use community blogging to leverage its power. This is when multiple people sign up and post content on the same platform but to their own specific blog. The blog platform will already have google indexing, a recognized domain name, many backlinks and domain age which then helps you to get indexed faster by google. All of these together help you to rank higher in google, bringing traffic to your site. But now these rankings are in the past and Empower Network is still using this old business model.
After you get set up on the Kalatu Platform Empower Networks you access their iPAS system. This is a plug and play system that is easy to use for newbies. Once you have this all set up for your own personalize blog you will
You will need to position yourself properly to earn maximum commissions from all of the sales that you generate. This means ordering and studying the product suite on a regular basis to ensure your success. (soloadsagency.com)
Products and Costs
$25.00 – The monthly membership includes your blog on their blogging platform, Kalatu Blogging System.
$19.95 – If you want to promote their digital products on your blog and earn a commission then that is additional every month.
Serious Money Makers Only
Now if you want to really make money within their system there are higher levels as follows.
Inner Circle Mindset Training – $100 a month. This level contains the full library of archived audio from the founders and entrepreneurs to educate you and give you positivity. By buying into this level you also have the opportunity to sell this level to others to earn commission.
Top Producer Formula – $500 one-time fee. Training to show how the top producers are getting 3 new customers a day and gives you step-by-step training so you can do it too.
Team Building Formula – $1,000 one-time fee. Teaches you how to build and motivate a team with “laws of team building”.
Mass Influence Formula – $3,500 one-time fee. Using scientific influence and persuasion principles they will teach you how to influence others and get them to “do what you want”.
Now you can skip all of this and just sign up to be an affiliate. This is the key to categorizing a company as a scam, out to make all the money they can, and not give much in return. Joining their affiliate program costs $19.95 a month. That is a red flag in my book. They do claim to give you 100% commissions of membership sales.
Solo Ads Agency that I quoted above is another upsell for them. $1,997 to take advantage of “targeted traffic”.
A great way to check a company is by scrolling to the bottom of the page and looking for a link to “Income Disclosure”. This is legally required or they could be sued for false advertising so the numbers there are real unlike testimonials which can be bought.
Okay so you want to sign up. What now?
First – if you start basic with the blogging platform and get people to join but they decide to purchase a higher lever – say Mass Influence Formula ($3,500) – you do not get commission on that because you have not paid to promote that. You just get commission on the $19.95 blog signup.
Wouldn’t that piss you off? It would me.
SCAM OR NOT?
Considering it is an MLM and there is not an actual product, just people who you recruit to recruit others, and on and on, I would put it in the scam category. This is also taking into account the “Income Disclosure” numbers. They have a lot of complaints with the Better Business Bureau but that is a scam site too so don’t rely on that too much. (Paid BBB members have better rankings with BBB.)
In doing my research for my Empower Network review I have found it is the ones that create these types of platforms that are making all the money.
Your best bet is to create your own website and build your own business.
The only thing these companies are good for, and this is the best tip I can give you, is for you to join them and study their business model to learn how to make your own MLM and have people join yours.
Then you will be at the top making all the money like these guys.
I personally use Wealthy Affiliate and you can read my review about them and have learned alot which can be seen on this website. Without them I would not have been able to do this and you can read how to get started.
