There has been much hype over the so-called Empower Network and how this is the dream for everyone who wants to make easy money online. Well – its not. It is essentially a pyramid scheme and it offers nothing. Yep – nothing, nadda, diddly squat. You see, they expect you to pay a minimum $25 a month just to join their blogging platform (which is just a WordPress theme that you have very little control over) It does not stop there – you have to pay for an eWallet, training and loads more BS, really its around $145 a month. And then you can write your own content.
Except you will never own it. Ever…
So, what exactly are you paying for again? Ah – the ability to make thousands of dollars in residual cash. Ok – so how? Well, by recruiting others. That horrible phrase “recruiting others”.
Anyway – once you get into the nitty gritty of it all you will see that this program is nothing but “how to market thin air”. And, if you want in on the “good stuff” be expected to cough up thousands of dollars of yet more disappointment.
It is sad that this program has recruited reportedly over 100,000 people now and that so many people are able to be scammed in such a way. Yes, that many people can be fooled and this is living proof that people will buy into the pipe dreams on the Internet.
What is even more sad though is the people recruiting others. How can they promote nothing to others? It is just another shameful part of the Internet Marketing world that a few people try to beam a good light on.
Anyway – I made an Infographic on why I think people should avoid it or get out whilst they still can. It is titled ‘8 Reasons Not To Use The Empower Network’. I probably could have listed more but I stuck with 8. I had some little Ninjas in my graphics box that have been dying to get out so I used them for this……

So there we have it – please drop a comment in the comments box below if you have any thoughts on this. I would love to hear from you. Oh yeah – and get this pinned and out to the world. Between us good guys (or wussies as they would say) we can add some steps to rid the online world of these unethical sleazy scams.
On a side note: If you want a sure fire way to get your online business running and making money then I highly recommend Rob Cornish’s course. The same price as you will pay for EN but way more value, and done the right way. You can check it out here.
