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.
Upwards of $140 per month for essentially a few
pages on someone else's domain! Thousands of
dollars if you buy the “Training Program” –
which is not worth a dime.
Banned from Facebook for spamming. So you will
not be able to share your content directly
through this program. Fairly big, considering
they recommend sharing through here.
There is no product! You are paying for thin
air! You don't own the content, you don't own
the domain. Sure – you get some training, but
this is all freely available elsewhere and it is
very average at best...
They say 100% commissions – but this is rubbish.
You do not get commissions for your 2nd, 4th, 6th
and every 5th one after this. Simple...?!? No –
just a lie.
Well, since writing this they have changed their
policies somewhat. They now offer a whopping 3
day refund. What other legitimate online
business offers that low a return policy? I mean
Surely if you are going to pay around $145 for a
blogging platform you would expect a free trial
option yes? Wrong – nothing, they are out to
take your money from the outset. And once you
pay you are free to post on someone else’s
domain. So you will never own the content!
There are widespread complaints of the lack of
support given by this thinly-masked pyramid scheme.
People have complained of lack of refunds and the
quality of training. Also the lack of knowledge of
upfront fees is another thing. If you enter at the
bottom of $25 a month – expect to be bombarded to
go all in for $3500!
Some very disturbing cases of people getting
harassed by their “Team” to go all in for $3500.
This is the big commissions – for what though?
More “how to blog” pre-recorded webinars?
This 100% ponzi scheme offers nothing but
telling you to sell HOT air. Is really
has no value. Why should you pay to post
content on someone else’s blog?
AVOID AND RUN AS FAR AWAY AS YOU CAN
