Is Empower Network Nothing But Hype?

Most people look for way to make legitimate money online at one stage or another. If you have then you will have undoubtedly unearthed Empower Network along your travels. Questions on this business are frequent, so much so that we decided to release this quick guide on what to expect from this program.

Today we look at the facts. Is this just another ’next big thing‘ home business or does it have the ability to be a genuine contender for a strong second income?

The most important, and most overlooked part, in any home business is it’s product package so that is where we will start. Here are a few simple facts concerning this business, followed by our opinion on them…

* This is a $25 per month membership.

* The main product members receive is a pre-built blog. Not just any blog, but an authority blog no less. What does that mean? Basically your posts are picked up and featured by the search engines very quickly, making it easier to get ‚recognized‘ in your particular niche should you choose to do so. And it works, we tested it.

* The second product comes in the form of training and support.

* And of course the home business is also available. Unlike most other programs of this type, this company is product driven and members are able to choose whether they wish to become an affiliate or not.

So now for the big question….

Is it worth $25 per month? Truthfully, yes and no. We feel that the main product is essentially a pre-made blogging platform which anyone could set up if they took the time to learn what each setting in their WordPress system means.

However, this business does have something working hugely in it’s favor. The training section is outstanding. We have seen so many home businesses lacking on this front that it was a refreshing change to be blown away by the depth and training on offer to it’s members.

There is no doubt about it, learning how to get the ball rolling is a tough cookie. The fact that they provide so much from the get-go really helps those who are prepared to help themselves.

This will not help everyone of course. After five years in online business we know that the main issue is people expect to get rich overnight. Any amount of quality training resources are fantastic but if people are not using them it won’t make a difference to their business. Which puts us back onto the main reason anyone should consider joining or rule it out… Yourself.

When you reach the affiliate plan you will either love it or hate it. At $25 per referral it certainly is very lucrative, however it does lack the appeal of payplans which come with a smaller reward per referral yet unlock a big residual income factor by rewarding you each time your referrals build their business, and so on.

The downside? This depends upon your personal view. We enjoy programs which also give you the ability to earn each time your downline build their business, which isn’t directly possible here apart from it’s simple two up system. However if you are looking for a way to earn large commissions then yes, you have found what you were looking for and probably more to boot.

Overall we recommend Empower Network as a solid home business. It will not change the world, but it may just change someone’s world. Depending on what you actually want to do in your home business, that could well be you.

Things To Look For In A New Home Based Business

When looking for the best home based business opportunity there are several key factors which you should be looking for. We are going to reveal our list of the top five things any online business should contain in order to succeed.

Just like in the real world, most businesses fail to last.

Some businesses are able to last whereas others fade away just a few months into their existence. How can a business like Global Domains International or any other established program cement it’s place as an good affiliate program when others can not to do the same thing? Today we will show you.

When it comes to online business the rules are almost identical to those which you’d use if you were trying to set up a regular business in your local area. They are as follows.

1. Do you find the product appealing? If you are just joining a particular business because of the earnings opportunity then you will find it harder to succeed. If there product isn’t appealing then nobody is going to join your opportunity.

2. Is the compensation plan as good as they make it out to be?

3. How long has the company been in business for?

4. Do you have a target? If not, you need to set one.

5. Becoming your own boss is time consuming. Can you give this the effort it is going to require?

Answering the five simple questions above will help you to determine whether a business is a good idea or not. If any of the questions above remain unanswered it tells us that you should avoid whatever program you are currently evaluating because the chances are it won’t succeed into the long term.

The check list above will generally tell you if a program is designed for long term results or if you should expect it to be a fly-by-night story. As an affiliate you need to find something you can work with for longer than three months at a time, otherwise you’ll be constantly starting from scratch and trying to establish yourself all over again.

The last lot of questions, of course, are based around you and your desire to work for yourself. This is to help you determine whether you are truly ready for the test.

You are not going to get very far if you fall into the common trap affiliates make, which is not having a long term goal. The first rule of success is to have a target. Sadly, most people who get involved in affiliate programs quite like the idea of making money online but lack the work ethic to get any results.

There is one question on the list which generally fools people and that is the final one. People often do not realize how much time needs to be put into this. If you are looking to make a career for yourself online you need to be doing something every single day to grow your online reputation in your chosen niche.

The biggest battle most people face with internet marketing is the temptation to constantly switch between affiliate programs trying to find an easier ride. Companies will look to prey on people like that, so don’t fall for promises of easy success.

When you are looking for the best home based business you should ask yourself the five questions shown in today’s post. If you receive a negative answer to any of them, you should keep looking for your perfect opportunity.

Look At The Customer Advantage Affiliate Plan

Affiliate programs are a dime a dozen these days but when it comes to The Customer Advantage things work a little bit differently. Today we’ll take a quick walk through how things work in this particular opportunity.

Undoubtedly the most common question with this particular business is along the lines of people wondering how they can make money with something that it completely free.

The last three years have seen this company test and develop their services while the affiliate plan sits patiently in the background. Make no mistake about it, this is not like standard MLM’s or online businesses. The products are the priority with this one and the affiliate plan plays second fiddle to a very strong line of tools.

The affiliate plan and the products go together hand in hand so to understand how to make money you first need to understand what you actually get from this program. As a member you receive tailored daily deals from local stores.

Think Groupon and you’re thinking along the right track here already, with one major difference. While Groupon aims to give it’s members a 30-70% discount on offers, this program goes for 50-70%, providing bigger savings. Secondly all the deals you receive are from businesses in your area, not world famous corporations, meaning it will specialize in everyday items as well as luxuries.

The easiest way to do that, of course, is to pay members for sharing it and helping it to grow.

So now we get to the affiliate plan. As an affiliate you earn a 5% commission each time anybody in your business takes advantage of a daily deal in their area. This is incredibly lucrative in the long-term given that the program is totally free and is about helping people to save money.

So if you referred ten friends you would be paid a 5 percent commission every time any of those ten friends took advantage of any good offers they find in their daily deals section, period. Essentially, you benefit every time you help somebody to save money.

Furthermore, the owners of the program followed suit with other home businesses, such as Global Domains International, and enabled members to earn a commission not just every time they referred a new member, but each time someone they referred signed up a new member, too.

After a while a business like this can become passive as it grows each time your members build their own business. Each time they do, of course, you also unlock a 5% commission earning on whatever that new member decides to purchase.

There is also an option to refer local businesses to the program. This option is perhaps for the more ambitious members, but it certainly has it’s perks. By speaking to a local business and helping them to run a daily deal you do two things. Firstly the business will be able to reach a potentially massive new audience and it won’t cost them a dime to use the program. Secondly you earn a 2% commission on every single sale the business makes. Better still, you make that commission every single time the business runs a deal.

To summarize, The Customer Advantage is an often misunderstood business which has taken it’s time to perfect it’s products. By putting it’s affiliate plan second and developing it’s services, it has shown that it has what it takes to succeed in an industry where so many people are guilty of rushing new businesses out almost every day.

Is Affiliate Marketing For You?

Affiliate marketing is one of the most popular choices among those who are looking to make money online but today we are going to help you figure out whether this avenue is something you would be suited to or not…

Like anything in life, for every five claims of life changing success you’ll surely be able to find five hundred claims of absolutely no results whatsoever.

Why does this happen? Today we’re going to show you and by the end of this post you should be able to make an educated decision for yourself. The main reasons for failure are written below.

* No help or support.

* The affiliate is only interested in making money and has no interest in the actual products their chosen company provides.

* People don’t realize how time consuming becoming your own boss can be.

Those three seemingly simple things prevent literally millions of people from achieving their online goals.

The ace up the sleeve of the industry in general, naturally, is the massively appealing fact that absolutely anyone can reach success if they are prepared to get serious with their efforts to become their own boss. Once you get past all of the whining and looking for excuses, you’re left with the fact that it’s just like any other business in that you must work hard to see results.

The part where most of us get lost, however, is being able to find the fine lines between success and failure. Those who are able to get the most out of their affiliate marketing business are not geniuses, they are regular people just like you. They’re just doing one small thing differently to the majority.

They’re applying themselves to their business. They’re treating it like a real business. When others are sat back waiting for a magic online system to develop their income, the serious folks are out there putting the work in for themselves.

As many people have said in the past, ‚you can not climb the ladder of success while your hands are in your pockets.‘

If you can focus your efforts on conquering steps two and three you should be absolutely fine. The first rule is something you cannot control, so if you are unlucky enough to be misled by a so-called ‚Guru‘ making big promises to you and then delivering nothing, don’t worry. You are the one responsible for your results anyway.

There is a ridiculous mindset associated with online business or affiliate marketing which does nothing but hold people back. They go into businesses treating it like a part time hobby or miracle quick fix solution to all of their current problems. Of course, it simply isn’t that way in reality. They then wonder why they never saw any results and they quit.

If you can’t resist the temptation which will be constantly put under your nose by ‚Gurus‘ trying to temp you with promises of easy, life altering financial rewards you will not get far. There isn’t much luck involved in becoming your own boss.

Until you get out of that mentality it will continue happening to you.

There are a wealth of affiliate programs to choose from on the internet, from the well known businesses such as Empower Network to lesser known opportunities. The fact remains that there are many people out there who have been trying to make money online for years without success. You now know the main reasons why, and you should be able to use this to your advantage if you decide that affiliate marketing is for you.

Is Branding Yourself Important To Empower Network Success?

When looking at an online business such as Empower Network it is important to remember there is a big chance you will get lost in the shuffle as thousands of affiliates try to build their business from home, so today we’ll be looking at the importance of branding yourself.

This is one of the many things in home business which comes down to your mentality rather than your actual skills.

If you opened up a gym in the real world what would be your first move? More than likely you’d begin trying to brand your business and tell people why they should be getting fit at your place as opposed to any others, right?

It makes perfect business sense but for some reason that mentality often doesn’t translate across to those trying to do the same thing on the internet. Regardless of whether you are trying to make money online or offline, you need to be able to stand out from the pack you put yourself into. Most people don’t realize that owning their own business comes down to mentality more than skill.

One of the biggest traps in home based businesses is that a shocking percentage of people who attempt to work from home for themselves fail to realize the serious attitude you need to succeed. It’s not that they fail because they cannot do it or don’t have the skills, it’s simply their mindset was completely wrong heading into it.

We cannot overestimate the importance of establishing your name. Whatever your chosen field is, from fitness to fast food, from computers lessons to parental advice, if you want to stand out in your crowd you need to pay very close attention to the importance of branding your name as an expert in your field.

Think about this for a moment. When you are asked to name a cola drink what’s the first thing which springs to your mind? If you’re like most people you’ll suggest either Coca-Cola or Pepsi and that should teach you immediately the power of branding. Everybody’s taste is different so there is a large chance that those two soft drinks are not the best tasting options for many people out there, but because of the brilliant job they have done with their branding mission they are the ones which everybody immediately thinks of when their niche is mentioned.

This isn’t just specific to that niche, it happens everywhere else too. In a recent survey where 2000 people were asked to name the world’s most famous football player an astonishing 60% said David Beckham. Despite the fact that he’s not considered the world’s best player and is almost 40 years old, David Beckham is still one of the most popular players in worldwide football and once again this shows the power of building your brand.

Transfer this way of thinking into your home business opportunity and you will notice why some people are able to enjoy success but others aren’t. Your brand isn’t your affiliate program, it’s you.

I’ve often encountered situations where affiliates have discovered certain programs with a website or video designed by an affiliate showing the various benefits to their business and, once they have been sold on the idea and wish to join themselves, they head off to find a suitable sponsor. Why didn’t they just join from that original page? Because the person who put it together did not connect with them on a personal level at all. People do indeed join people they can associate with.

By removing themselves from the picture, that person lost potential business. Remember, people join people. Your name is your brand and that is your most powerful tool in becoming your own boss. Ultimately your skill takes a back seat. You could have a ton of knowledge in a particular field but if you don’t get out there and lay the ground work to become recognized you’ll be lost in the mix.

So if you’re wondering how some people succeed in opportunities like Empower Network and go on to make money online whereas others can’t get anywhere, take a look at how those people are utilizing the power of personal branding. You’ll be shocked at how something so simple makes a very big difference.

Is There A Secret Success Formula To Global Domains International Or Not?

For the last ten years, Global Domains International has been one of the most established home based businesses on the internet but today we are going to answer the most commonly asked questions for you.

Is there really a secret formula to success?

Just like any other program, there is a fine line between changing your life and getting nowhere. For every success story you’ll hear somebody saying they found it impossible…

Like any home based business program, you are going to encounter these type of results. There is no guarantee that you are going to reach success in business, of course, but the truth is many of the affiliates who are failing to get any results are doing so because of reasons which could be eliminated very easily.

While it would be easy for us to talk about a ‚miracle system‘ as the answer to your quest for success, the honest answer here is that the reason many people fail with their GDI affiliate business comes down to their own lack of determination.

A lot of this comes down to the way people were introduced to it. Online businesses tend to make themselves appear easy and, as a result, people aren’t ready to for work involved. The main skill which will determine your results is your determination to succeed.

If you sit back and wait for your future to build itself, guess what, nothing will happen. Sure, it’s a quite lucrative home business opportunity with a solid compensation plan. But if you are not actively working to grow your business and establish yourself as a leader within your field it’s all useless.

If you watch how somebody markets their online business when they are getting results you will notice it is totally different from those who are not successful. Not only do they work harder but they work smarter, too. They market with facts. Those who are unsuccessful tend to say anything they can in order to get a new signup, leading to misleading information and claims of being able to make money without any effort.

The rules to success in GDI are very similar to the rules needed for running your own business. It’s not an overnight solution to your problems, you are going to need to lay down a long term plan for your vision and work at it daily.

Not every single day for the first two weeks, but every single day until you reach your goal. People are looking for instant success and that’s the reason a lot of members in these type of programs fail.

People tend to have a nonsense mentality with online business, seeking instant solutions to their financial problems. You need to be long term if you want long term results, period.

Global Domains International is a business which magnifies this problem more than most opportunities. There is a vast amount of affiliates trying to make money online yet getting nowhere and, sadly, that won’t change until they get a little more serious with their business.

Empower Network Member vs Empower Network Affiliate

Today we are going to give you the scoop on Empower Network. What are the advantages and disadvantages of becoming an affiliate of this company and, more importantly, is it suited to you as a potential home based business opportunity?

As you have probably already seen, there are countless success stories out there from people who have used the affiliate plan to build good incomes.

But don’t be fooled, of course. Just like any home based business opportunity there are also people who fail. In fact, there are many of them. For every success story there are probably five people who thought they could do it and failed…

The first stage of getting the absolute most from your monthly subscription is to decide what you actually want to do with it. What are you trying to achieve? You have two choices of membership.

While the majority of online businesses automatically include your affiliate plan with your products this one works a little bit differently. You can either unlock the products alone or the entire package. Perhaps this is an attempt by the company to show others that they believe their product has worth on it’s own.

If your overall goal is to use Empower’s authority blogging tools to brand yourself in a particular niche or gain more recognition in search engines for your existing business or brand, you will probably be more suited to the standard membership as it will allow you to do just that.

For those of you that want to be able to earn money with this program, however, you need the other membership level. The main issue we picked up on when we first came across this business is that it was unclear on price. You are led to believe it costs $25 per month but should you choose to be an affiliate you’ll notice the price is actually $45 per month.

This is one of the reasons we say you should think carefully about why you wish to become a member before you make your move. It could potentially save you $20 per month!

Those who decide the affiliate package is better for their needs will notice that the higher price each month opens up a few extras. Most notably, of course, is the affiliate plan itself. You are able to net a $25 commission for every member you introduce to the company via your personal link.

Most affiliates fail to get anywhere, however, because they dream up big incomes and then fail to achieve them when they get started. To ensure this doesn’t happen to you we advise taking your time with your decisions and getting from the business what you actually want.

Any good home business is merely a platform. It’s your job to take advantage of it and launch yourself. Remember that, because it will help you in future.

And there you have the main differences between being an Empower Network affiliate and a customer. We think now you are able to see the various differences and the reasons a wide variety of people use the program for completely different reasons other than just trying to make money online.

Why Most People Don’t Build An Income For Life With Global Domains International

If you’ve watched the flashy presentation with the car on the Global Domains International website you’ve probably got ideas of a potentially lucrative, shiny new home business. Stop right there. We’re about to show you the side to GDI you won’t see anywhere else.

The fact is most affiliates in this program fail. They don’t make any money at all. That’s not all:

* Thousands of members are getting no help from their own sponsor.

* Most affiliates get no type of training or advice from their upline.

* Many members have never achieved a bonus.

* Many affiliates never see their name on the GDI leaderboard.

* The majority of affiliates don’t pay any attention to the products side of the company.

While some people are able to make the most of this opportunity the vast majority get absolutely nowhere and the reasons above account for that.

What causes this vast gulf in results? One of the biggest issues is the false marketing out there. If you are going into a business expecting it to be incredibly easy you will not get far even if you have great potential. There is a lot of misleading information online.

If you are easily led by big claims of easy results you will notice you are constantly being misled. That’s not to say it’s your own fault (misleading marketers are to blame) but if you are intending to become your own boss you need to have your wits about you and your head screwed on. Stay away from those offering you statements like:

* Our automated system will build your business for you effortlessly.

* If you join our team we’ll do the work for you to get you started.

* Join our team and we’ll place signups underneath you.

Like every home business, this is the type of competitive nature promoted between affiliates. Teams competing to try to get new referrals by promising literally everything until they actually have to promise to do the entire work for somebody because there is nowhere else left to go. Business doesn’t work like that and it’s no wonder that the people who make up those claims are the ones who are not actually getting anywhere themselves, either.

Nobody can build your business and do all of the work for you. If it seems like it’s too good to be true, it definitely is. But those poor leaders out there will be hoping that the ‚what if..‘ factor takes it’s grip on you and fools you into taking a shot to see if you get lucky. That’s how they hope to make a living. It’s a poor decision and it’ll hold you back until you change your mentality.

Deep down, of course, we all know we cannot make a lot of money online by simply joining somebody in a particular business and then sitting back. We know it’s nonsense. But we fall for it because of the situation we are in at the time.

The thing most Global Domains International affiliates need is simply a reality check. Deep down they know the things promised to them were nonsense but they fell for them out of desperation to change their financial lives. That doesn’t mean they can’t do it. Many have done it before. Sometimes all you need is that little shake to wake you up.

Home Based Business Solutions

It’s easy to be a little scared at the prospect of becoming your own boss and creating your own home based business. The industry is full of confusion, from people telling you that you can make money online without any effort to those telling you that you need to spend thousands of dollars per month on their latest marketing software. The truth, however, falls somewhere in the middle of the two.

A smart move to make early on is to familiarize yourself with any potential competitors and keep an eye out for the type of services and deals they like to offer. This allows you to provide a better service than anybody else in your chosen niche.

Taking calculated risks is a big part of achieving success, particularly with online business. Launching experimental product lines and promotions is a perfect way to build your loyal follower base and improve your market positioning. If you always keep the same routine, you will never know if something else would have done better, right? Don’t be frightened to get yourself out there into uncharted territory.

Rapid success is almost certainly not going to happen, including the various internet based programs that promise rapid financial returns. You will need to factor in a reasonable timeline for success when starting any home based business. Just take your time and keep working on it when you can, and you’ll be able to achieve the business success you have dreamed of before too long. Most people do not fail to make money on the internet, they quit.

Speaking to a local attorney would also be a good idea, as this allows you to get the scoop on any laws you must adhere to. If you plan to offer physical products rather than becoming an affiliate for an already established business online this is an area to take great care over.

Do everything you can to make sure your customers are satisfied. It sounds cheesy, but it’s really true. A satisfied customer is a free marketing tool, spreading the word about your business better than any advert can. Always take the extra step. Include freebies with their order if you want, or include a letter thanking them for their business. Everyone loves to get something for nothing. Make it known to your customer that you appreciate their business and they will more than likely come back.

Additional help is also available for those requiring it. You can hire outside assistance as needs suit, but if you run a daycare or have a product you need to create then this is something you should definitely consider.

No matter what type of business you plan to operate, whether you want to make money online with programs such as Empower Network or create a home business based upon your own products, you should find that the tips in today’s article will help you to get started on your journey. Now it is time to take action. Good luck!

The Harsh Facts Of Making Money Online

Most people trying to make money online do so with their real world senses blinded by big promises that they can change their life overnight. We’re sure you have seen and read all the hype. But today we’re going to bring you something directly different – the truth.

Watch today’s video clip.

You’ll encounter masses of people trying to sell you a quick solution to all of your financial problems. In fact if you were able to line them up end-to-end you’d probably circle the globe more than once. There is no miracle solution.

Unless you take your business seriously you’ll always have somebody out there preying on you. There will always be someone taking your money and leaving you in a situation you don’t necessarily want to be in. Business is no different.

The three simple rules below will help you to cut out a lot of that junk and keep to reality when building your business.

* You must have a goal for the long term.

* If you’re going to become your own boss you need to do it with something you actually enjoy. That’s the whole point.

* Do something every day. Every single day.

These steps go perfectly together. You see, to complete step three you will absolutely need to make sure you paid attention to step two, and to do either you’re going to have to perform step one.

I’ve heard people saying they ‚failed‘ to become their own boss. That’s not true. They just quit. There is a big difference. There is nothing wrong with failing, but there is plenty wrong with quitting. Particularly if it’s something you really want to do. Most affiliates are not serious enough, they like the idea of making money from home on auto pilot but dislike the reality that it doesn’t just happen overnight.

He or she who has the biggest drive will be the one to succeed with their goals. Like offline business, not everybody makes it. The most important skill you can possess is focus. Everything else can be learnt along the way. Companies often teach you how to market, Empower Network for example, but you need to main ingredient within you for it to work.

If you ask anyone how badly they would like to have a large online income, of course, they’ll tell you that they want it more than anything else in life. It isn’t as simple as that, because that’s not a truthful answer. Will they still want it at 6am the following morning? Usually not. Not long term, anyway. When the going gets tough for you, that’s when you find out how much you actually want success.

Just like in the real world, those who were just fantasizing will fade off into the distance and those who meant everything they said will stay the distance. The secret to success is simple. There is no secret. If you are trying to make money online you simply need to be focused and determined, no miracles necessary.
