If you are researching the Empower Network you cannot fail to see the stories of success littered all over the internet, but if you look closer you will also see a few less complimentary versions of how people followed the 90 day blog plan and got no results at all.
So what I want to share with you in this empower network review is a thorough look at the Company, the compensation plan, and why I made the decision NOT to join when it launched.
So firstly a little bit about this rather extraordinary company The Empower Network – Updated for 2015.
The Empower Network Review – Is it Real?
Well it certainly created a few shockwaves in the industry when it launched in the Autumn of 2011.
As a marketer, I am always interested when someone “breaks the mould” a bit and so I took time to investigate it as it didn’t seem like any MLM model but it wasn’t quite a one off affiliate programme either. It was different and new.
It would appear that the Empower Network “product” was a ready made, optimized (for the search engines) blog that you could just start blogging on straight away.
The blog had highly converting opt-ins and capture pages attached so that anyone visiting your blog and liking your content could opt in and be taken to a sales video and follow up.
It ‘branded’ Dave Woods and David Sharpe as the creators of the system.
But the biggest selling point about the Empower Network system was that as an affiliate of the company you were then able to promote the system and earn higher commissions than the industry had ever seen.
Commissions that high I thought?? NOT possible!! How would the Empower Network make any money?
So I investigated further and found that there is a $19 “back office merchant” fee so that you don’t have to process the financial transactions yourself. This fee also pays for the capture pages, hosting, customer service and all the transactions.
Hmmm – I still couldn’t quite believe it.
The blog would cost $25 a month to get going and then as soon as you wanted to promote it to earn commissions you would pay the $19 monthly admin fee.
There are then the upgrades of course……….
To get inside the “Inner Circle” you had to pay an additional $100 a month (on top of the $25 and the $19) to get access to the training.
Well as I was already a member of a top MLM Marketing system that covered just about everything you ever need to know about marketing your business online, I knew then that I was not going to pay out $144 for a blog that I didn’t need and some training that I could probably find in my back office marketing system.
So here’s why I didn’t join the Empower Network
- I had my own blog already that branded me and not David Wood!
- In the early days there did not seem to be any way of changing the picture or tailoring the blog in any way
- There didn’t appear to be any training for new people
- I didn’t like the sound of it.
So I decided to make my own marketing decision ……. And ignore it.
I then stood and watched in amazement as every single facebook advert on my profile and pages were filled up with people promoting the heck out of it. Masses of people on my friends list then proceeded to “tell” me all about the Empower Network by messaging me at all times of the day about it.
I felt I had made the right decision and waited for all the hype to die down!
The Empower Network Review – The Biggest U Turn!
So why did I change my mind and jump on board with the Empower Network in the Autumn of 2012?
Okay here’s why.
In my business I had my own blog (this one) and one of the first things you need to know if you are wanting to build an MLM or any business is that an online presence is almost essential in this day and age, but it also gives you a place to brand YOU so that you stand out from others who are promoting the same thing.
But some of the less technical members of my team were really struggling with that and even ‘though it is fully laid out for them exactly how to set up a blog from start to finish in the my marketing system I was using – they just didn’t want to do it.
I realized there and then that I was leaving “money on the table” by not offering this as a service or a tool to some of my team.
So I signed up just to be able to give this to my team as an option.
And then something strange happened.
Within a week of showing it to a couple of people who had approached me for advice on how to build their MLM (but they had lost the passion for it) they decided to join the Empower Network because they had heard so much about how well it was working.
So I upgraded to the $100 package because my costs were already covered (you see how that works? – how many people do you need in your business before your costs are covered?).
Now that was a gamechanger because I noticed that people were “hanging around” longer – they didn’t disappear off to planet Zorb like they did in my old Network Marketing business!
And the training inside the inner circle of the Empower Network blew me away! This was stuff that just isn’t being taught out there ANYWHERE!
Trust me! – I know!
And more people joined.
Then I realized something else. Dave is a product of his own business. He is only making his money by building his business by being the top distributor in his own company – so he is ‘on the ground’ doing exactly what I am doing.
I loved that.
So the Empower Network quickly became my favourite source of income on the internet – because the 1,3,5 and every 5th passup is NOTHING compared to the amount of passups I am now receiving from my downline and I also found that I made more money in Empower Network in 3 weeks than I had for the whole previous year with my MLM.
And then I realised why!
Now I am not here to put down the MLM industry – heck I love it – it just didn’t work for me very well!! But here was a MASSIVE “lightbulb” moment for me that I want to share with you.
You see most MLMs pay out about 5-10% on their downline teams. So when I worked out my average revenue per distributor (total distributors divided by total income) it came to just $9 per distributor. But with the Empower Network because of the 70% commissions plus pass ups, it came to over $500 per member of my team.
Hmmmm……… It’s powerful stuff but I do need to mention this.
PLEASE don’t be fooled that high incomes in any business are easily achieved – it takes time and effort to build a powerful residual income, but Empower Network is one of the only Companies that I know that is proud to display it’s Income Disclaimer, so please go ahead and read it if you want to and trust me this is SO much higher earning potential than most/all of the other MLMs out there!
You see I had only been in the Empower Network about 3 weeks when I got my first $1,497 day because I had positioned myself to earn those commissions the minute my other costs were covered.
So what about some articles out there claiming that the Empower Network has no actual product?
Well that one makes me laugh a little because there are 5 Core products inside Empower –
- The Viral Blogging platform – Kalatu – $25 per month
- Inner Circle – $100 per month
- Top Producer Formula (One time payment)
- Team Building Formula (One time payment)
- Mass Influence Formula (One time payment)
Each one of these products takes you a step higher in your marketing knowledge.
It’s like getting a marketing “degree” level education, but a lot more useful!
So if you’re sick of making tiny MLM checks or failing to make any sort of income online from affiliate programs – come and take a peak at what we’re doing.
So how do I make money with the Empower Network?
Okay so you make money in the Empower Network by retailing the core training products and the monthly membership to those core training products.
Then once you have purchased your own membership and products, you are then able to receive commissions on your team members. The 1st, 3rd and 5th products sold at each product level are passed up to your sponsor or powerline sponsor. The 2nd, 4th, 6th and every other sale after that except for every 5th, then comes to you.
It’s very powerful – and of course…..it’s 70% commissions on all of the products which is exceptionally high in the industry AND you will get the pass ups from your team members.
So can I guarantee you will earn what I do? No of course not, because I don’t know you or know what your work ethic is (please read the income disclaimer) and anyone that says they can guarantee you will earn a six figure income is lying to you. But what I can guarantee you is that you will have everything you need right at your fingertips to be able to achieve success if you have the right mindset, are coachable and are prepared to take daily consistent action.
This is truly the only system I have seen that allows you to achieve so much, so quickly. And things like this happen when I was away for just 4 days!
There are other Companies now trying to copy the exact model that Empower Network uses but in my opinion the business could never be recreated somewhere else, because the culture is around the founder David Wood.
He has a passion for helping people and caring like I have never seen before. He also has a VERY strong “why” for doing what he does.
You see the Empower Network builds People and leadership skills whilst earning residual income. It’s a game-changer in the online world and allows people with no previous marketing skills to come online and earn an income.
Okay this all sounds great, but will it work for ME….?
Well I can’t really answer that for you, because only you know how much you want to succeed and how hard you will work. What I CAN tell you is that we have everything set up for you to achieve unlimited success in the Empower Network, but you will need to be prepared to take daily consistent action, be coachable and willing to learn.
So Here’s what you get if you join Nicky Price’s Empower Network team:

5) Practical lead generation that goes hand in hand with the Empower Network training so that you understand exactly how to generate leads for your business online without getting overwhelmed.

Getting to the Top 125 Affiliates in 3 months!
Well this was great for me……because it meant that I got to go to Austin in Texas at the Empower Network event and sit right at the front in the VIP seats. I then did it again for the next event – also qualifying as a VIP top affiliate, but this time was so much better because 2 of my team members were ALSO in the top affiliates proving to me that what we are doing in our training WORKS! One of them was even in the top 200 with me too!
But in the last competition I had at least 13 of my team members on the leader boards this time – which is very humbling!
And I just came away from the last events with the realization that there are so many other Companies out there right now, heck there are others out there right NOW trying to copy the affiliate model that Dave created, but you know what? They will always be missing the key components that have made The Empower Network something truly special …… and that is the passion and leadership and the real “why” that Dave has for doing what he does. Dave got sick of earning “tincey, wincey” commissions and has made it his absolute mission to have the wealthiest team of affiliates that any Company on the internet has ever had. Dave Wood is a pioneer in the industry and I’m so proud to be associated with him. The Empower Network builds “people” as well as incomes.
“People join for the money, but they stay for the Community that IS the Empower Network.”
2015 Empower Network Releases ‘Kalatu’ and ‘Kalatu Premium’
Back by popular demand Empower Network has reverted back to the WordPress based blog but with some substantial enhancements to the original version.

(Once again, because I have mentioned income – I have to state that high incomes are not guaranteed, in fact we cannot guarantee you will make anything at all with the Empower Network because we don’t know you or your work ethics – please see the income disclaimer)
In my opinion it is the Kalatu blog that is the key to YOUR success. Whether you are passionate about another business and their products (but you’re maybe not where you want to be in terms of income) then maybe it’s time to brand YOU and not your business.
People searching for YOUR business are looking for information, support and a Community of successful people to plug into. People who provide content (i.e articles or videos) on a premium looking blog will automatically be seen as an authority and you can plug them into a community of people (us!) who can help them to market their business properly.
You can take a look at the latest Kalatu product here and register for the 21 day blogging challenge.
