Empower Network has burst onto the scene as the latest and greatest, and certainly one of the fastest-growing internet network marketing opportunities out there.
Many are jumping into Empower Network in awe of the 100% commissions concept, which is being heavily touted by Dave Wood and Dave Sharpe as the “No Wussy Commissions” marketing approach. Certainly, if you are part of the internet network marketing world you have been approached by someone with the Empower Network’s 100% commissions pitch.
However, the 100% commissions of Empower Network is nothing new. Infinity Downline, a Peter Wolfing project, has been providing 100% affiliate commissions for it’s members referral sales since January of 2009. And Infinity 100, the sister program of Infinity Downline, also from Peter Wolfing, has been providing 100% affiliate commissions since January of 2010. Peter Wolfing and Multiplex systems set the veritable standard for 100% net payout affiliate marketing programs with these two companies. Since then various others have tried to emulate the Infinity programs, but with little success. 100% net payouts leave nothing over for the company itself to cover administrative costs and thus it takes very unique circumstances on the part of the company in order to make this work, and in order to stay in business.
Empower Network seems to be about the first company to really make a run for providing any real competition in this 100% commissions niche.
The creator, David Wood, notes that he David Wood so that normal people without expert selling and presentation skills would have a platform with which to realize online marketing success.
As Mr. Wood earns his income with the Empower Network in the same fashion as the other members, this means that all administrative expenses come directly out of his pocket.
Very “noble” or very “foolish”, you be the judge.
The difference the Empower Network seems to be bringing, when comparing to the long-established Infinity Downline program, is that of higher quality and more up-to-date website designs, more effective company sales presentations, and more pricing levels for the products, yielding higher income potentials for the affiliates and higher levels of product value for it’s customers.
Empower Network has also added more of a team dynamic to their affiliate pay plan, providing for an affiliate commission “pass-up” on every 5th sale, for each product, as opposed to the “Reverse 2-Up” system of Infinity Downline, which provided for only two affiliate commissions being passed up the line, maximum.
In the Empower Network comparison to Infinity Downline we see the new and “buzzing” meeting the proven and established, with Empower Network taking the best points of Infinity Downline and improving upon them, while at the same time fixing some of the old irritations and problems of the Infinity Downline system.
Empower Network ran into it’s share of trouble however, including a massive server crash, which has since been resolved, and ongoing issues with trying to find a merchant bank willing to accept hundreds and even thousands of individual merchant accounts daily.
