Empower Network Review

I quit the Empower Network over a year ago but I have a friend who keeps telling me about all the great things going over at the EN so I decided to look into it again.

“Check out the website,” he said. So I did…

When I typed the empowernetwork.com URL into my browser this is what I saw;

Website Blocked – Scam/Questionable/Illegal

My first thought was, “how am I going to get people to sign up if they can’t get to the website?”

He said, “It must be your firewall.”

So I turned off my security settings (like a dummy) and I was able to get through. I must say the new EN website is impressive and after clicking through the site I was thinking, “wow…this is nice.”

But then I snapped out of it and it occurred to me…”how am I going to convince people to turn off their security settings so they can visit the site and sign up?”


00 number 2

My friend suggested I send them (my future prospects) to the ABCNews4 stations across the country that feature positive Empower Network press releases on their ABCNews4websites. If you visit these sites you will see this;

“Hmm,” I wondered, why have those ABCNews4 stations removed those pages?

Then he suggested I check out the ABC7 News in Chicago live segment on starting a home based business featuring Tracey Walker, one of the top affiliates at the Empower Network. Although Tracey did not mention the Empower Network by name she did mention that the average amount required to start a home based business is $5000 which happens to be the amount of money it takes to get “all in” at the Empower Network. She also stated that the main reason that people fail is that they do not do everything that their mentors tell them to do.

Check it out;

I think the host rushed the interview but Tracey did a great job and she got a nice plug for her webinar at the end.

So if my mentor tells me to spend $5000 if I want to succeed and I don’t have $5000 why should I even sign up? Shouldn’t I wait until I have the $5000 before I sign up?

I thought to myself, “who do I know that has $5000 to invest in this opportunity that I keep hearing so many bad things about?”

My friend suggested that I “get all in” and invest the $5000 and get access to all the info that would explain everything in detail and give me access to training and motivational videos that would empower me to to make money online as an EN affiliate.

My first thought was why on Earth would I spend $5000 for training when I can get great training elsewhere for much less? And do I really need motivational videos when I consider myself to be a self-motivated and positive thinking individual?

Judging from the comments, Tracey’s ABC7 segment was well received by her fans (downline?) but there was at least one detractor in the audience who shared the following comment:

“It is a sad day when someone is able to promote an MLM pyramid through a TV Station!”

This sounded a little like a disgruntled someone who knows what Tracey was really promoting.

A little more research and I heard that Empower Network links were banned from Facebook and Pinterest. Even if this is true it really means little to the experienced marketers who have other ponds to fish in and other means to build their downlines but it may have been a knock out blow to the less experienced affiliates.

I’m going to pass on the Empower Network right now because to be honest, as excited as I was to promote this before, I don’t think I can sleep at night promoting this to people knowing how difficult it will be for them to promote it to others.

What do YOU think about the Empower Network opportunity? Am I wrong? Are you having EN success?  I’d really like to know…please share your experiences in the comment section below.



P.S.  I realize that EN is very popular and some people are going to promote it no matter what so I wrote an article on how you can promote EN despite all of the negative comments and reviews that are circulating on the internet.

    Absolutely fascinating information on Empower Network!
    I was going to sign up with them before I joined Wealthy Affiliate for what I thought would be regular training. I decided on Wealthy Affiliate after signing up with them for free and trying them for a week.
    I signed up with Empower Network after this, mainly to test the waters myself. The story is not good, no acknowledgement from them at all!
    I tell it in my website on online scams.

      Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment. I’m not trying to hate on EN, I have friends who love it and many more who (like me) decided it was not for them. I think you made a great decision by joining WA. Good luck on your journey toward online success!
