Empower Network Guide
The Empower Network Guide (and Infographic)
The Empower Network has generated buzz and a cult following (while calling people
“wussies” and paying out $15,000,000 in commissions).
I wrote The Empower Network Guide to help you understand what the movement
is all about.
To download the PDF (and printable) version, click here.
For starters, here is an infographic that highlights the Empower Network since their
October 31, 2011 launch.

What is the Empower Network?
If you are active in affiliate marketing or scheme on sites like the Warrior Forum,
perhaps you have heard the Empower Network come up once or twice. To be fair, the
Empower Network has been called anything from an online marketing revolution to an
affiliate marketing scam.
Often misunderstood, it hasn’t identified or labeled itself with a particular industry. It can
be described as a lead generation tool, online marketing training, blog platform, affiliate
marketing program or a multi-level-marketing company.
At it’s vaguest, it is an Internet marketing system.

January 11th, 2013                                                     Published by: jeremypage

Who is this David Wood guy?

Before starting Empower Network, 31-year-old David Wood had amassed separate six
figure incomes in both network marketing and affiliate marketing. Then he figured out
a system that cut his production down to an hour a day.
And then, it was almost as if he had a new message to deliver to the confused marketing
world. Something like:

January 11th, 2013                                                      Published by: jeremypage

“I’ve seen the promised land, and there is good news. You can sign up the masses without
ever talking to people.”
You can’t really explain David Wood. The best I can come up with is a hybrid of Hansel
(played by Owen Wilson) from Zoolander and acclaimed marketer Tim Ferriss. At first
glance, David Wood looks like your typical long-haired digital hipster. But the young
founder brings an odd, albeit refreshing “F the corporate world” flavor to the table.
He never buys shoes, eats raw food, and lives with his wife, Ashley, in the mountains
of Portalon, Costa Rica. He prefers to go unscripted and on the whim, often letting his
miniature poodle make guest appearances on his webinars.
David does not own a cell phone. He doesn’t need one. He doesn’t prospect — nor does
he recommend it.
“Do you know what I feel about prospecting? Folks, last year I brought in 1000 people
into MSLP [MLM Lead System Pro] and I also recruited another 500 people at a
$500 buy-in with another company…I have out-recruited everyone in my company by a
minimum of two times the last few years, and how many people did I prospect? None…I
am not a prospector. Prospectors are telemarketers. That is a $6/hr job.”
What about SEO? He outsources all of it.

January 11th, 2013                                                     Published by: jeremypage

“You know what’s funny? The very second I had money in my business, I stopped doing
SEO immediately because I don’t like doing it…100% of SEO is outsourced for me. I don’t
like to do it. I like to be creative.”
David Wood gets it. I mean, just listen to this guy:
“Instead of making another sales pitch on my website, I’ll just make a video of myself
doing a cannonball naked in my pool — and then get 150 new leads from it.”

The Empower Network System — Blogging System
When you join the Empower Network for $25 as an affiliate, you get access to
your own authoritative blog on the empowernetwork.com domain. You don’t have to
install anything. You just get your own extension of their website. So, it would be
empowernetwork.com/ yourusername.
Now, all you “SEO people” out there know what I am talking about when I say
(I am also an SEO guy – I worked two years at one of the largest SEO agencies in the
USA and have e-commerce sites that bring in daily sales because of organic, first page
An authoritative website is a website that ranks high on Google. It usually has an aged
domain, high traffic and thousands of other people linking back to you and a dominating
January 11th, 2013                                                        Published by: jeremypage

social presence. Think of it like a popularity contest. The more people that “vouch” for
you (in this case, by linking to you or sharing your content) the more popular, and
subsequently, traffic, you get.
As of September 26, 2012, the Empower Network is ranked 507 in the world in total
website traffic, according to Alexa. Go ahead, take a look for yourself. This is completely
Now let’s take a look at their backlink portfolio, using SEOMoz’s Open Site Explorer:

They have a lot of people talking about them. 6,102 Facebook shares?
To give you an idea of how much that is, TechCrunch, ranked 283 in the world according
to Alexa (and obviously has been around a lot longer than Empower) has had 2,355
Facebook shares to date. And those Facebook shares are deceiving, because Facebook
actually banned all Empower Network activity on their network a few months ago (that’s
pretty awesome, huh?). That’s a whole another story, though.

January 11th, 2013                                                          Published by: jeremypage

So needless to say, when you get a piece of real estate on a top 500 website in the world,
you are going to “rank” more naturally in the SERPS (Search Engine Result Pages) and
you are going to get more traffic.
Don’t be blinded with unrealistic expectations. You aren’t going to get viral traffic after
your first blog post. It will take time to get momentum, but you will get traffic faster this
way than by creating your own blog, especially if your content rocks and you incentivize
other people to share or link it.
Did you know that if you were to start your own website today, it would still take 3-6
months before Google did anything with it? This is called the “sandbox period” and the
only workaround for this is to buy an existing domain that has been up for years or find
a site that actually lets you blog on it (like Empower Network).
Now, the beautiful thing is the blog you receive is already optimized. Both for traffic (as
I just explained) and for conversion purposes.
You see, your private EN blog comes equipped with professional banner ads that convert
your sales for you. When someone clicks on these attractive ads on your blog, it sends
them to your leads capture page (note: a leads capture page is a page that is optimized
solely for the purpose to harvest an email lead) wherein the sales video becomes
“unlocked” after the email is given.

January 11th, 2013                                                        Published by: jeremypage

You see how powerful this is? You are limited to the responsibility to just blogging on
your private EN blog and then the rest is done for you. You build your “list” that you can
optimize for your other business(es) and you send people to a powerful sales funnel that
converts the sales for you.
You don’t call anyone. You don’t answer any questions. You just blog interesting stuff,
then you will naturally start converting sales on auto-pilot. Literally, you can blog about
anything. I have seen EN blogs about vacuum cleaners to MMA fighters. The key is to be
interesting and blog consistently…then promote it. If you aren’t sharing the content, or
promoting it through various web vehicles, you’ll end wasting a lot of time. Affiliates in
EN who have been blogging consistently for awhile are already seeing daily commissions
being deposited in their account through their blog leads.
Now, the only “catch” to earning payments through Empower Network is their e-wallet
(or in other words, the method you get paid).
The e-wallet runs you $19.99 a month, and takes about 8 minutes to get up and running.
Think of it as the merchant fees. In any business, you will have merchant fees and this
is the way it works with the Empower Network. You will get paid the same way for the
other Empower Network products as well.
It should also be said that your business will need an email auto-responder service,
such as Aweber or Mailchimp. Although it is not required, building your “list” is useless

January 11th, 2013                                                        Published by: jeremypage

without a way to manage your list. You need an automated email service to effectively
communicate with your leads.
An account at Aweber (most common) runs for $19.99 a month.

What About My “Other Online Business”?
The EN wasn’t created to compromise your other businesses. It was designed to give
people the tools, training and resources to market anything, including your existing
business or businesses. In fact, many top income earners are using Empower Network
as a leads system for other opportunities, such as MLM or high-end affiliate marketing.
They use the Empower Network to market products on the front end, and then their
“other opportunities” on the back end. Many EN affiliates promote their Clickbank or
Ebay, Amazon, Etsy products on the blog…the classic double dip. It does not really matter
what other businesses you have, the Empower Network training will make them more
web centric and profitable.
Think of it as a master’s degree in Internet Marketing, except you’ll get reselling rights
to the degree…and get paid tuition money from your referrals.
Now I don’t want to go in this too much, but one of the products is an elite “inner circle”
where David Wood invites the top earners to share (in explicit detail) all their techniques
and tactics. This is an ongoing, evolving Internet Marketing University. There is such an
abundance mentality in the Empower Network culture that it makes for an outstanding
January 11th, 2013                                                       Published by: jeremypage

learning environment. This education is suited to grow both your Empower Network
income as well as your other businesses.

What is the “Secret” to Empower Network?
I was in San Diego for their Fight the Forces of Evil event, held September 21-23rd 2012,
and David Wood addressed this exact question, because he said he gets asked this all
the time.
So he goes up on stage and writes “Traffic” on the whiteboard, draws a few arrows that
point to “Lead Capture Pages”, shrugs his shoulders and then looks out at the audience.
(And then the crowd of 3,000 people started laughing and clapping)

January 11th, 2013                                                          Published by: jeremypage

That’s all it is.
Drive traffic to your lead pages, then people are kicked into a high converting sales funnel.
Traffic can come in so many ways. A large part of this will be through your private EN
blog, but you could also utilize your private blog, create niche blogs, guest blog on other
blogs, email marketing, social media traffic, Facebook ads, PPC, solo ads, advertising
co-ops, job classifieds, Craigslist, text message marketing, Skype contacts, StumbleUpon
ads, or your YouTube channel. That’s a good start, right?

January 11th, 2013                                                       Published by: jeremypage

Keep in mind, once you figure out a PPC campaign that works, or a Facebook ad that
converts well, it becomes a matter of scaling it after that. I have guys on my team making
north of $20,000 monthly because they learned how to scale their leads. It is a formula.
If you find out the cost of your lead, and then the cost of your customer, you can tweak
your operations accordingly and your campaigns can be scaled.
You also have traditional marketing methods that are still effective. There is a top 15
income earner in Empower Network that does the majority of his marketing offline, using
print media in home business magazines. Another EN team out of Singapore generated
the third most income in Empower Network the last 90 days by running ads that said
“Retire This Year” and pointing people to a free “Freedom Workshop” at hotels, where
they presented and then had the masses sign up afterwards.
Me, personally…I probably won’t ever present at a hotel because I got into EN to take
me out of the sales process, but the point is you can be creative to drive people to your
lead pages.
But keep it simple. Just drive traffic to your lead capture pages.
The high conversion sales funnel will do the rest for you. This is where the brilliance of
David Sharpe, the other co-founder, comes into play. His speciality is writing brilliant
copy and creating captivating sales funnels. Together, with the presentation of David

January 11th, 2013                                                       Published by: jeremypage

Wood they created a sales funnel that converts 10% of the prospects that watch the entire
video — crushing the industry standard of 2-3%.
After the buyer gets the first EN affiliate product (the $25 blog platform), the sales
funnel kicks them into another video, and then another video, etc…making it completely
automated. You don’t call and up-sale.
And you get 100% commissions on the products.*
(*A new product that was just released doesn’t pay 100% – the merchant fees are
substantially higher on this product so the EN takes a bigger chunk)
It’s funny, cause Dave just gets on this video and pretty much rambles for 27 minutes.
Then, people buy stuff afterwards.

Empower Network Compensation Plan

Internet marketing experience, no list, and very little money made $10,000 their first
There also have been people who haven’t made a dime. Just like anything in life, it is

follow instructions)

Empower Network Compensation Video (By David Wood)

January 11th, 2013                                                         Published by: jeremypage

Truthfully, the best way to understand the Empower Network Compensation plan is to
watch this video. This is the compensation plan at its most thorough, so watch it a few
times (and good luck sleeping tonight).
Just be mindful that the 15k formula used to be $250 and we now have an additional
product (Masters Course).
The Empower Network Compensation Plan in 30 Seconds

   • You only earn commissions for products you’ve purchased (if you aren’t qualified,
     they pass up to the next person who is qualified)
   • You get 100% payouts on all the products…however, you pass up your 2nd, 4th, 6th
     sale and every fifth sale after that — on each product.
   • Only one person gets paid for each commission (not like MLM)
   • For the first six sales you refer you will pass up three of them. In other words, you
     net 50%. The other 3 will be coded to the person who referred you.
   • After that, you pass up every 5th sale. So after your first six sales, you net 80%. You
     continue to keep 4, then give each 5th sale is coded to your sponsor.

January 11th, 2013                                                        Published by: jeremypage

   • You, then, will be coded commissions for every 1,3,5 sale and sales 7-11, 13-17, etc
     for each product, an addition to getting pass-ups from every 2,4,6 and every 5th sale
     from the people you personally refer.
   • You can continue to get the 2,4,6 sales and every 5th sale from your passups and
     from your passups passups, and so on…infinitely deep.

Try to let that last bullet point sink in. It’s astronomical.
Still don’t understand? Don’t worry, it takes some time to sink in.
Watch the video again. Just realize that it is working very well and helping a lot of
average people make tons of money.
I’ll give you an example:
You join our team at Empower Network. You decide to join at the $25, $100, $500 and
$1,000 levels and you are my 3rd sale for all four products. You are now coded to me
and I earn $25 and $100 per month as long as you stay active, and I make one time
commissions of $500 and $1,000.
Next, you refer Nate. Nate decides he isn’t messing around, and he gets “all in”. He joins
at the $25, $100, $500, $1,000 and $3,000 level and he is your 1st sale on all five of
those products. Nate is coded to you at the $25, $100, $500 and $1,000 level and you

January 11th, 2013                                                       Published by: jeremypage

earn those $25/mo and $100/mo commissions as long as he stays active, on top of the
$1,500 in one-time commissions.
But since you did not upgrade to the $3,000 level, that commission is passed up to me
since I’m the first person in line who upgraded to that level.
Now lets say you learned your lesson so you upgrade to the $3,000 level… and Nate gets
focused and and brings in 5 people his first two weeks. The first two joined at the $25
and $100 levels, the 3rd one joined at the $25, $100 and $500 levels, and the last two
get “all in”, purchasing all $25, $100, $500, $1,000 and $3,000 courses.
Nate is coded to his 1st, 3rd, 5th and earns 100% commissions on those people. Since
you personally referred Nate, you are coded to his 2nd and 4th sales (since you get 2,4,6
and every fifth sale after that).
So, with those 5 sign-ups, Nate generated $375 in monthly residual ($25 + $100 X 3) and
caked out on $5,000 in one-time commissions ($500 + $500 + $1,000 + $3,000).
You would earn $250 ($25 + $100 X 2) in monthly residual and $4,500 ($500 + $1,000
+ $3,000) in one-time commissions.
But here is the kicker that few people really understand…as Nate passes up people to
you… they are now coded to you… so you will earn the 2nd, 4th, 6th and every 5th sale
they make, and then the 2nd, 4th, 6th, and every 5th sale of those passups, and then their
passups…and so on.
January 11th, 2013                                                        Published by: jeremypage

I hope you are excited by now.
If you’ve heard enough, just get in now.

I Don’t Have Money to Purchase All the Products
Very understandable. That is why you can join for $25 and still make some money.
It won’t be the fastest way to making 30k a month, but it is a step in the right direction,
and you can always get the rest of the products later.
However, some of you “think” you can’t afford all the products.
You wouldn’t think twice to pay thousands for your college credits for a semester, because
you knew you were investing in yourself and your future. (There is some irony there,
because college doesn’t really teach people how to make money).
It’s intriguing how many of the top-income earners sacrificed considerable amounts to
get their hands on the products. John Wells, who is also on my team and one of the top
25 earners in Empower, sold his big screen on Craigslist. A year ago, he was one of those
guys in Las Vegas handing out escort flyers. Now he does over $20,000 a month. Another
guy took a chunk out of his 401k.

January 11th, 2013                                                       Published by: jeremypage

My Brother & I (Our Story)
My brother, Ryan, decided to quit his 6-figure corporate sales job a little over 2 months
ago. He had just come off his best year, too.
The money was good, but it came at the cost of 65-hour work weeks, flooded inboxes,
daily pep talks and meetings that usually talked about future meetings.
And get this…they told him how many days of the year he could go on vacation.
I graduated from college a few years ago and applied for 22 jobs shortly after. Not one
single job called me back. I even applied for “safety jobs” like moving luggage at an
airport. Nothing.
I was depleted. I even remember having to ask my roommate for $40 because I got a date
but had no money for gas.
As a broke college graduate, I stumbled on some books that changed my thinking, (pick
up copies of Multiple Streams of Income and The Four Hour Workweek) and ignited a
knowledge carousal in online marketing. That led me to landing a job with a top SEO
firm in Utah and building my first websites.
Today, my brother and I live in San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua, (I am writing this on the top
balcony overlooking the ocean) where we are learning Spanish, surf everyday and enjoy
geoarbitrage benefits of a third world country.
January 11th, 2013                                                       Published by: jeremypage

“All courses of action are risky, so prudence is not in avoiding danger (it’s impossible),
but calculating risk and acting decisively. Make mistakes of ambition and not mistakes
of sloth. Develop the strength to do bold things, not the strength to suffer.” – Niccolo
Do whatever it takes. It doesn’t mean you need to quit your job now. (You’ll get there,
Remember, average people in Empower Network are now making their yearly income…
every month.
Why? Because they decided to do bold things. They simply wanted it more than others.
They took action.

Make a Decision
Like I mentioned before, I am on John Wells’ team. He is the dude in the picture holding
that big check. We are one of the fastest growing teams in the program.
Take advantage of his leadership and join our team now.

January 11th, 2013                                                       Published by: jeremypage

In addition to his leadership, you will also have access to a private Facebook group where
we go over tactics and share advertising co-ops, marketing templates and other systems
— kind of like a support group. After you sign up, I’ll have your information and I will
message you the private link so you have access to the group.
All because you decided to take action…right now.
Are you going to keep doing what you’ve been doing, or will you make a change?
The hard part has been done for you. The website, brilliant copy, banner ads and lead
capture pages have been meticulously designed so that you only have to do the marketing
— which, of course, they teach all of this in the products.
January 11th, 2013                                                       Published by: jeremypage

All you have to do is listen to the products and take action.
What are you going to do?
Just remember, before you decide, please reference the mantra that started it all:
“No Wussies Allowed!”

“The Corporate Outcast”
PS…this is the same blog that you get win you join Empower Network.
A blog like this normally costs thousands — for you it’s only $25. Ya see, (like I said
before) we are a top 300 blog in the USA, so the blog ranks exceptionally well on Google…
