Empower Network – is it a Scam?

I keep seeing this one force itself into my Facebook, Twitter and Email accounts.  It has got to be one of the biggest, well promoted get rich quick schemes out there.  Here’s what I found out after joining them…

Name: Empower Network
Website: http://empowernetwork.com
Price: $20-$5000 (yes FIVE THOUSAND!!!)
Overall Rank: 2 out of 100

Empower Network Introduction – my personal review


Empower Network claims to be legitimate – there are a lot of ex-members who would say otherwise.  However, I’ll try to be objective.

What are the Pros and Cons of Empower Network


Pros

  • You get your own hosted blog
  • Supposedly easy money, for little effort

Cons

  • It’s not clear what the actual product is
  • Your main goal is to “sell” Empower Network to your friends and contacts
  • You have to pay a regular monthly amount of $20 JUST to be able to withdraw any money you may make
  • Every time you ask a question, there is another up-sell before you get a snippet of an answer
  • It seems to be very similar to what we know of as a pyramid scheme

Who is the intended audience for Empower Network?


This is for everyone who believes you can make a huge amount of money, with close to no effort, in a very short amount of time.  This is a brilliant piece of marketing, as it promises you soooo much, that many people who are either desperate, or a perhaps unaware of the internet scams around, can think that this will answer all of their dreams.  Endless amounts of cash, for next to no effort.  How can you lose??? (I’d say, how can you make any money legitimately, without any effort – answer – you can’t!!)

Training & Tools Available within Empower Network


This can vary greatly, depending on who “recruits you”.  Regardless, the person who did will constantly be pressuring you to buy upgrades to your membership, which will directly pay them, and in part pay the person above them, and above them and so on.  There is no “product” or “service” here.  The people at the top of the chain gain a huge amount of money from the people ANYWHERE lower in the chain to them.  When your friends or contacts run out, or after you have lost them as friends due to your constant badgering to pay more money just so they can be part of the club, where are you going to turn to next?  You’ll have no friends left you can persuade to join, and your “pyramid” collapses.

Summarized Overview


Name: Empower Network

Summary: Any system where the only way to make money is to promote that system, is a SCAM.  It is possible to make some money – but only at the expense of losing your friends, family and contacts, when they find out you have scammed them!  I’ve given this 2 points, as if you are completely unscrupulous (ie. without any morals), you can make money from this – from your family and friends… while they last.
