(Newswire.Net -- April 3, 2013) Minneapolis,MN -- The Empower Network ranked among 55 other top home based business opportunities according to the April 2013 edition of Home Business magazine. The article entitled “55+ Direct Sales Home-Based Businesses” describes the Empower Network as having a low startup cost ($25). It is an online business that features a blogging platform, educational courses on internet marketing and an affiliate sales program.
Strange hybrid of direct sales and mlm—all online.
Home Business magazine identifies the Empower Network as both a direct sales and mlm (multi-level marketing) business. In an interview with a member of the Empower Network I was able to clarify the benefits of combining direct sales with mlm.
Like any direct sales company, the Empower Network sells a product. All of its products involve blogging, internet marketing and affiliate marketing.
The entry level product is the blogging platform.
This product is a ready-made blog. The benefit of many blogging platforms is their high Page Rank and Alexa Traffic Rank. If you or I were to set up a blog with our own domain name and hosting, we would start with a Page Rank of zero and no Alexa Traffic Rank. Setting up a blog on a blogging platform automatically passes the authority of the blog network on to the member bloggers.
Instruction in internet marketing.
The rest of the Empower Network products are a series of online educational courses on internet marketing. These courses have varied prices. One is an ongoing subscription to weekly audios featuring different experts in internet marketing who share their information. The rest of the education products are extensive courses. One course includes 24 recorded webinars, each over 2 hours in length.
The affiliate program.
Anyone who wants to sell the blogging platform subscription or the internet marketing courses must join the Empower Network affiliate marketing program. This program is unique in that affiliates make 100% commissions on their sales. The only caveat is that an affiliate must have purchased a product himself/herself in order to make a commission on the product. Thus the affiliate program becomes the vehicle for making direct sales.
The MLM program.
The mlm program in Empower Network is inseparable from the affiliate program. Whenever one makes a direct sale one is automatically registered as the sponsor for that buyer. If someone you sponsored decides to become an affiliate and sell Empower Network products, they become part of your down line. A computerized formula determines when a down line sale is credited to you.
No more hassling friends and family.
What many people love about the Empower Network, according to members interviewed at a recent conference sponsored by the group, is that you don’t need to hassle family and friends to make this mlm business work. Leads are generated online. That’s what the educational products are all about—internet marketing. So the business is done online without even a mention to family and friends.
