Empower Network August Update

Last Update: August 07, 2013

Just a heads up for the fans of the ubiquitous Empower Network. One of the two friends I've mentioned in the past is having greater troubles due to her EN membership. It seems that ENv2, the newest incarnation of the EN scam, has launched its own video channel. She sees this as a massive positive, whereas it is, in fact, a necessary reaction by the two Davids to the fact that YouTube is toughening its stance on spammy rubbish. The trouble is, she's videod up to the eyeballs with nowhere to put them until the EN video channel is fully up and running. They've probably done her a favour because her videos are bordering on illegal, containing boasts like "I upgraded from the $25 membership to the $100 membership". No love, you didn't; you upgraded from the $25 membership to the $25 + $100 membership. That's $25 more than you're misleadingly telling everyone. Shame on you.

Never mind, she still has FaceBook to fall back on. Oh, wait, FaceBook seems to have banned her for 14 days from sending spam, I mean friend requests, because she sends them out in batches.

Fortunately she still has the testicular fortitude to carry on trying to flog the concept to all of her soon to be ex-friends, including a good mate of mine whom I'm about to phone... now!

Gosh, it is so difficult for a newbie like me to discern what EN is up to . They got a good write up and I almost joined them, had them on my to do list, then I found WA, joined as a free member and liked the way their teaching is so structured. I need teaching as I am completely new to IM and will take whatever I can get, provided its legal and ethical.

Hey Christine,

My advice as someone who has been down the MLM path is to stay away from any of them. I hear EN is especially aggressive in their tactics. You have everything you need to make successful business here at WA provided you are willing to put in the work. My suggestion before you buy any other program is to shoot us a blog post and let people tell you the reasons not to join. Remember, every dollar spent on some useless shiny object is a dollar less that you can use to promote your legitimate WA business.

Best Regards,
Jim

yes, I know and I am glad I did not join them, I am with WA for my 4th week and upgraded to premium quickly. I appreciate every bit of training I am getting here, don't misunderstand my comment. I appreciate your advice to get reviews and comments from WA members.

If it wasn't so tragic it'd be hilarious. I always love their press release headlines, ie. "Empower Network Sponsors 100,000 Homes" sounds fab, huh? http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/empower-network-sponsors-100000-homes-217812931.html Except 100,000 Homes is the name of the charity that they gave a measly $10k to out of their millions-and-millions of instant earnings that even a 12-year-old kid is apparently easily capable of making, unless of course he's a complete "wussy". I saw a clip the other week where a journalist from the Village Voice stated EN is "working" out of offices owned by Scientology in Florida, even though they're actually holed up in Costa Rica. You couldn't make it up, huh?! Rich.

Thankfully we don't have to make it up. All this writing material for FREE eh? It's almost a public service.

Oh Rich, your remarks crack me up at times. You know what's even funnier. Some day they might make a TV series out of all this. We'll probably be 20 years older and saying to the grandchildren "I remember them when..." Now that'd have to be a comedy drama :)

Doesn't sound like a friend to me if they are spamming and scamming.

It's a fine line a MLM person walks. No doubt. Thanks for the input on EN.
