90 Day Video Challenge (Day 1) – Taking Massive Action

90 Day Video Challenge (Day 1) – Taking Massive Action

So today is the first day of my 90 day video challenge, with the intention of taking my business to the next level. This is my first quick video and my second, screen-cast-o-matic video is ready to be published, so I’m off to a flying start.

If you’ve never used screen-cast-o-matic, it’s a free software that you often don’t even have to download – I had to, but that’s marketing on the internet :-)  You can record your screen easily, with an adjustable window and you can pay £15 for a year for some extra benefits, but the free version is fantastic.

I’ve only used it a couple of times but I found it very easy.  Just like anything on the internet, once you’ve done it a few times it makes more sense.  It definitely makes easy videos for those days when you haven’t washed your hair or you have a huge cold sore :-)

I’ve just recently bought a new laptop because my old one had a scratched lens in the webcam, so I was unable to make videos with it.  This video is the first one using my new webcam, which is another first for me as I’ve been using my trusty camera for the last few years.  

So now I’ll use my camera for any outdoor videos, the webcam for indoor, screen-cast-o-matic when I’m feeling dowdy and I also think I can do the screencast ones with a little video of me (via webcam) on the screen too.  Not tried that one yet, but I’m sure whilst I’m doing my 90 day video challenge, I’ll be trying that out.  I will probably also be upgrading my Screen-cast-o-matic account for the extra benefits.

I’m really enjoying video marketing and have made it my main marketing method (obviously, I’m doing a 90 day video challenge lol), but I really wish I had stuck with video marketing right from the start of my work at home efforts, because when you study just one subject, you get better and better at it.

90 day video challenge

90 Day Video Challenge (Day 1) – Taking Massive Action

So, the video is done, but the work is only just started.  I’m sure you know that just popping videos onto your YouTube channel is not the end of the story.

To start with I will be pinging my videos, so that the search engines know they are there.  Then I will be posting them on social sites to get back links, using Onlywire Social Bookmarking service.  

And of course I need some comments, so I will be commenting on other people’s videos, so that they watch, comment and like my videos!

Hopefully after that, my videos will begin to rank at least on YouTube, if not on the search engines!

So, have you ever thought about doing or actually done a 90 day video challenge?  Do you think it is a good idea to get you taking massive action in your business?  Please tell me how you get on in the comments section below; I’d love to hear from you.

How Do Blogs Make Money?

How Do Blogs Make Money

Well I guess you’re here to get an answer to the question: How do blogs make money?  Well let me just point out right upfront that tons of blogs do NOT make money!  

But then tons of blogs DO make money :-)

 There will always be people who like the sound of making a blog, look into it and decide to give it a go.  A high percentage of these people will spend untold hours toiling over which blogging platform to use, how to set it up, what content to use, where to get images from, whether to start making videos and dozens more problems. 

Their major realization will come when they only get a handful of visitors to their shiny new blog; it’s like an island in the middle of a vast ocean!

Sorry folks, setting your blog up is the easy bit :-(

Getting visitors to come to your amazing new blog, and then actually making money from them is a whole other level!

So, we’re back to the same old question:

How do blogs make money?

Well presuming you can get some traffic to come to your blog (and we’ll work on that later), there are lots of ways to make money from them.

1)  You can sell your own products

Of course not everyone will want to make their own products, but selling your own products on your blog can be a big moneymaker.  Even a short report in pdf form can make you some regular money.

2)  You can sell other people’s products

This is known as affiliate marketing.  You find a product in your niche  and sign up as an affiliate so that you can promote their products on your blog.  This can be with a banner, with blogging or reviewing the product on your blog.  Amazon or ClickBank are popular choice for affiliate marketers.

3)  You can join a Network Marketing company

If you are a Network Marketer a blog is a great idea!  You can blog about your company and your product line.  You could attract people into your business by helping them set up their own blog and giving them ideas for marketing.  You could do blog posts on a different product each week, highlighting its benefits and hopefully making money that way.

4)  You can become a retailer

You could set up your own shop or business (or perhaps you already have one).  Setting up a blog would certainly drive sales and you could let customers know via your blog about any special offers  or sales you have going on, or highlight particular products.

How Do Blogs Make Money?

So now you can see that there are lots of ways to monetize a blog.  But of course without traffic, no-one will ever visit your site!

There are so many different ways to get traffic to your website, it would be impossible for me to list all of them for your now, so this is just a few starter ideas for you.

#1  Join a Tribe and get your content syndicated.  With most tribes, you read, comment and ‘like’ other people’s articles and videos, and they return the favour. These can work very well and soon get some traffic going to your site as your content is shared around the internet.

#2  Share every post you make on as many social media sites as you can.

#3  Share all your posts on as many bookmarking sites as you can.  Later on you can automate some of this.

#4   Make sure your posts have good ‘on page’ SEO so they can be found easily by the search engines….(free traffic!)

 #5  Post regularly!  If you only do the occasional post, Google will pretty much ignore you.  If you do regular, good quality posts, Google will rank you higher.

That should kick-start traffic to your blog, but you need to take into consideration, no scrub that, you need to get into the MINDSET,  that blogging is a long-term strategy – you need to be building up your blog constantly for at least 90 days before you will see results.

Whaaaat??  Yes really!

And I mean proper, solid, hard work; not just an hour here and there!  Do you want success?  Then you need to put in the work!

Whilst you are building up that traffic to your blog, you must get some other type of marketing going on, preferably paid marketing.

The success or failure of your blog is never down to luck;

 Unless it’s L-U-C-K as in Labour Under Correct Knowledge!  

If you labour under correct knowledge, your blog should succeed and you will know the answer to the question – How Do Blogs Make Money?!!

 So how do you make money with your blog?  Please leave me your comments and let me know how you get results with your blogging.

Email Marketing – Love or Hate?

Do you Love Email Marketing?  Or Do You Hate It?

Email Marketing – Some of us love it, some of us hate it, but whichever you are, you need to realise that Email Marketing is probably the biggest money-maker on the internet.


Email Marketing – Love or Hate?

People hate it because they join a guru’s list and immediately they are bombarded with emails, offering one product after the other, or pushing them to get involved with a business and often with little or no help or advice.

I totally understand how people get cheesed off with these type of emails.

Some people will always market this way, because some people WILL buy everything they are offered!  Hell, look at me – 5 years online and I still love to investigate Big Shiny Buttons!

Plus so many marketers say “You must email your list everyday – maybe even twice!!”

Well again, as a marketer – I understand this point of view too (what me, sitting on the fence, never lol :-)

You see as a marketer, I’ve come online to make money like every other marketer (whatever they might say) and if emailing everyday makes me money…..!

But what I feel is the absolute best way to use email marketing (Because I’m not a guru and because I’m not the type of person to push anyone into something they may regret) is to use email marketing as a tool to get people who join your list to know and like you, so that eventually they trust you to only offer products and services that will help them to succeed with their business.   

So to my mind, 80% of your email marketing should be offering free trainings, helpful blog posts, webinars; indeed anything that is a valuable resource to help them build THEIR business.

The other 20% can be invitations to join you in business or a recommendation of a product or service that you are already using, that helps you in your business.

To me email marketing,whether you love it or hate it, is a chance for your list to get to know who you are as a person, your story, where you live and what you love etc.  Because some people on your list will be inspired by your story and those who are not will unsubscribe to find someone who resonates better to them.

Which is fine!  Never feel bad when someone unsubscribes because everyone is attracted to different people (noooo, not like that; what are you like!)

Personally, I’m not keen on young ladies with high-pitched squeaky voices!  I can’t watch their video’s so I don’t want to be on their lists, but it is not personal!

Email Marketing – Love or Hate?

email marketing love or hate

Plus it could be other marketers checking out your email list!  It could even be me, because I love to see how other people market and I often get on a list for that very reason :-)

The problem for so many marketers though is that it’s just so difficult to come up with follow-up emails to keep your list interested.

I know that is my biggest problem, but it’s something I’m working on consistently to improve.

In fact I am working on a new batch of follow-up emails right now to try to connect better with the people on my list.  I’m trying to let them see me as a real person, just be being myself and seeing my problems as well as my successes.

And I know what I want from an email – a great headline that makes me want to open it or intrigues me; special offers, inspiration, education and every so often one that just plain makes me laugh :-)

So do you love or hate Email Marketing?  What problems do you have with it?  Please leave your comments below, especially if you believe you are good at email marketing!

Facebook Marketing using 22social with Mike Hobbs!

Mike Hobbs has to be the nicest bloke in Empower Network!  He’s most likely going to be the next Empower Leader with a millionaire’s ring but it won’t make a lot of difference to him; he will no doubt still help the Prosperity Team and his downline succeed in Empower.

He’s the guy with the sideways smile, and I’m sure if you search it out you can find out the incredible story of why is smile is crooked!  I think it’s kinda cute personally :-)


And his latest offering went down very well with me!

You see Mike does a video almost every day; well every weekday, and probably not when he’s at events. (Blimey, give the man a break!)  

His videos are always in the form of a tip and they are always generic, as in they are not just about Empower Network, they are about internet marketing, mindset, mlm; well anything to do with having a home business online.  No scrub that; sometimes he talks about offline marketing too :-)

Well I listen to the majority of his tips and they are always good stuff, but just recently he has done something amazing!  And it’s something anyone can copy to help out their downline, team or fellow marketers.

Because he is now using something I’d heard of but didn’t understand: 22Social!

Now 22Social  is a Facebook app.  (I know, I know, if you’re my sort of age you have no idea what an app is:-))  Well it’s short for application and it’s a bit like an ‘add-on’ or a program that runs in Facebook.  (Yes I bet you know what Facebook is; my age group (getting on a bit) is the biggest growing group on Facebook – ooh, get us!)

Anyway, back to Mike Hobbs!   With 22Social, every time Mike does a new video tip, it plays on MY (yep, my) Facebook Page!!  

Which is awesome, because without any work on my behalf, apart from the initial set up, I have regular video tips playing on my Facebook Page.  Check it out here!


Anything that saves me time with internet marketing is great with me; I love hands-free Facebook marketing; the 22 social app is a brilliant idea and Mike Hobbs is awesome.


Thanks Mike!

PS  If you’re not already involved with Empower Network, the awesome Prosperity Team and the legendary Mike Hobbs then what are you waiting for?  Join us here!


What??  Yes you’ve probably heard of Dave Wood if you have anything at all to do with internet marketing, blogging or Empower Network.  

You may well have heard of Neurolinguistic Programming or NLP.

But Kwoon?  Nope, me neither :-)

I just literally logged into my Empower Network back office and that’s what I was hit with:

Dave Wood’s latest video to help you succeed in your Empower Network business.  And really you have to give him kudos for trying everything to help people succeed.

dave wood, neurolinguistic programming and kwoon?He’s certainly done courses in NLP and hypnotic talk.  But I think he is starting to grow up!  Spoken like a true Granny, Sue :-)

Well it’s true;  I was never drawn to Dave Wood as a person, even though I could see he was driven and determined to succeed in the MLM arena.  I hope it had more to do with who you resonate with than his choice of apparel……but I can’t actually say that’s true.

But now he has a wife and child, well he seems (apart from the dreadful t-shirts) to have grown up!

Anyway….back to the video I watched when I went to log in!

Well, just before that, I have to confess that I haven’t been watching many of Dave Wood (or Dave Sharpe)’s videos recently.  

Sometimes you just go ‘off course’ for a short while.  But I’ve come back motivated to see what I’ve missed with Empower.

So… the video.  Only 13 minutes long, so short for Dave, good for me.  (I get distracted too easily).  But I watched it all the way through!

First Dave talked about a ritual that basketball players go through before they try to put the ball in the net.  Obviously a very short ritual, it’s not like you can stop the game whilst you focus :-)

Seems that if you do some mental preparation for succeeding, controlling your breathing and focusing your mind, it anchors an emotional state and you can achieve your goal (pun intended) most of the time! Result.

So Dave Wood wants us to go into this state (of mind) every time we log into our Empower Network back office.

And this is where Kwoon comes in!  

It means a place of learning or a school.  Dave wants us to go into a state of learning when we enter the Empower website, so that we are focused on what we are learning.

Follows on pretty much exactly on what Empower teaches I suppose: Learn, Teach, Do!

Dave Wood shows us how to find symbols to focus on to get us into this state, and then tells us to close our eyes and bring this symbol into colour, 3D it, enlarge it and really make it real.

And I can see that a hell of a lot of people NEED this.

Hell, I probably do too!  There I’ve said it. 

I’ve always thought that he couldn’t teach me anything, but hell neuro-linguistic programming (that’s a mouthful!) is really popular; there are courses going on constantly both online and offline, so there has to be something in it.

And you know – he’s right!  

If you are anything like me, you are listening to a video with one ear, and hopping about on Facebook or adding people on Twitter instead of concentrating on the training.

So thank you Dave Wood.  I’m running from one end of the internet to the other instead of focusing properly on one thing: Empower Network.

Lesson learned!

After the lesson Dave tells us and shows us his Millionaire Ring and gets us to focus and imagine our own rings and the dates they will have on them. Oh, they have diamonds!  Cool……Sorry, focus Sue!

Right, so that’s it for today, off to School Kwoon now, see you tomorrow! Warmly

Sue Collier


Are You An Internet Marketer?  Should You Still Be Using Backlinks As A Marketing Strategy?


 Is It The End For Backlinks As An Internet Marketing Strategy?

I have recently been researching SEO techniques and how to rank in Google and what Google actually wants from us in the form of articles and videos.  Although I believe Google is taking far less interest in backlinks as an Internet Marketing Strategy, I still feel they want to see some, naturally building backlinks to our content.

Too many, just like too few or none at all, can definitely go against your ranking.

I would say Google now is more interested in ‘Social Signals’  rather than backlinks.  (Though of course comments are a type of backlink).

Social signals are ‘likes’, retweets, plus ones, comments etc and as such I believe we will see (and in fact are already seeing) a resurgence of tribes and team members creating groups to syndicate each other’s blog posts and videos.

Several years ago, I was in a great tribe and we syndicated each other’s work religiously.  However, I hadn’t been online long at the time and just didn’t realise the importance of syndication and how much traffic my blog was getting directly from it!

In fact, looking back I would say this is possibly how close I was to succeeding in the business I was promoting at the time when I gave up syndicating.

internet marketing strategy

Hindsight is a wonderful thing!

When I remember how high my blog was ranked and how my visitors per day were increasing, it really makes me angry with myself!  I have already got involved with a couple of syndication groups and will certainly be spending some quality time syndicating other people’s content.  I had forgotten how much you can learn from other bloggers in your niche, without taking into account all those lovely comments, shares and likes:-)

So, I for one am very pleased that Google wants Social Signals instead of people chucking hundreds of backlinks at their work.

Social is much more fun :-)

While I’m on the subject of syndication (yes, I may have gone slightly off track, but I do feel it is related) another great way to get your content syndicated is at http://www.iboexchange.com where you build up points by ‘liking’ other people’s Facebook Pages, adding them on Twitter and pinning them on Pinterest.  Then you can add your own pages to build your social signals.  

Iboexchange goes quite slowly at the moment, though I do feel this seems more natural, which is always good.  Once you sign up you also get regular coupons for free bonus points and if you log in each day you can get some extra, which is all good.

I think when you search for something in Google (and the other Search Engines), you want to find information about your chosen subject that helps you make an informed decision about whether or not you wish to buy or get involved with it.  

Not a load of badly written mumbo-jumbo stuffed with hundreds of keywords that make no sense!

And that is exactly what I believe what Google wants to see – Authority Sites, full of good content, well written, with lots of social signals.  And lots of pictures, relevant videos and infographics seem to go down well too!

I’m beginning to love the ‘science’ of SEO, ranking in Google, and watching how Google is evolving and changing over the years.  Probably not something that most marketers would agree with!

In many ways, I wish I had specialised in just that, SEO, right from the beginning of my internet marketing journey.

Anyway enough for now!  Do you use backlinks as an internet marketing strategy?  Do you believe they are dead and if so what are you doing instead?  Please let me know in the comments!

And I love to share!!

Work At Home Success: 3 Rules You Must Follow

 Work At Home Success: 3 Rules You Must Follow

Whaaat?  You don’t know the three rules for Work at Home Success??


Well here you go, ready?

No 1 is Focus

No 2 is Focus.…….and have you guessed it?

Yes, No 3 is Focus!!

work at home success

Simple Huh?

But, it’s soooo difficult!

You see even after 5 years online, I still get distracted by OPE and BSB!

What are they?

Well OPE  stands for Other People’s Emails and BSB stands for Bright Shiny Buttons :-)

1)  Other People’s Emails

You see my problem is that I want to know what everyone else is doing online – and although that’s healthy in that I can keep up-to-date with what’s happening in the industry – it also stops me from doing my everyday tasks to market and build my business.

So my decision is that I’m still going to keep an eye on other people, but for now I’m going to opt-out of Other People’s Emails!  

I’m really going to clean up my inbox(es), so that I’m not tempted to spend all day reading emails and clicking on links.

I’m going to FOCUS on my Work At Home Success!

2)  Bright Shiny Buttons

Which leads me quite nicely to those Big or Bright Shiny Buttons!

Because I read OPE’s, I click on their links to see where they go, then I see their Bright Shiny Buttons and I want to know how their funnel works; what capture page they are using, what page it leads to, what business they’re promoting, how good their emails are and on and on and on.

But it stops me from FOCUSING!

So I’m cutting out the OPE’s and the BSB’s:-)

I’m going to focus only on IPA’s for the next few months and just plain old ignore those OPE’s and BSB’s.

Of course, I’m definitely going to read my emails (the few that will be left when I’ve opted-out of everything but the most important ones: team updates, mentors, business etc.  But I will be reading them later in the day, after I’ve done my IPA’s for my work at home business.

Oh no, not another one?

Yep, this is the important one – Income Producing Activities!

By this I mean any or all of these (and probably more I’ve forgotten for now):-

  • Buying paid traffic (don’t forget to track it so you know it converts)
  • Writing articles
  • Doing videos
  • Syndicating your content
  • Syndicating other people’s content (join a group if you’re not already doing this)
  • *****Email Your List******   –  This one comes with lots of stars next to it; it’s that important!

I am definitely going to be doing some posts on email marketing, because how many people do you know just like me who can’t stop reading Other People’s Emails?  So clearly e-mail marketing is HUGE and believe me, lots of people (even some people who I used to think were ‘guru types’ are not doing great email marketing!

So, are you looking for work at home success and if you are, how do you keep that focus?  Please leave me a comment below – I always need extra ideas, especially now I’m giving up OPE’s!

Who Is Jeff Buchanan Of Instant Payday Network?

Hello, Sue Collier here again and today I want to answer a question I often get from people – Who is this Jeff Buchanan guy and can he be trusted?

Haha, yes, I think you will find Jeff to be an upstanding, everyday regular bloke who got fed up of doing the 9-5 grind and decided to try his hand at making money on the internet.

And wow, did he succeed:-)

Jeff Buchanan as of today 3rd April 2014 is in 9th position on the Empower Network leaderboards for Total Number of Leads since Empower opened!  I think that ranks him pretty high!  Check out this photo for proof.


Jeff Buchanan

Who Is Jeff Buchanan Of Instant Payday Network?

Jeff (or Jeffrey) Buchanan lives in California, is very much a family man and loves God.  He has been in the position so many aspiring Network Marketers and Internet Marketers find themselves, in that he wanted to replace his 9-5 grind income by making money online.  Unlike so many, Jeff kept going and after some struggles ‘broke the code’ for making money on the internet.

He set up a program called Instant Payday Network which is a free system utilising Fortune 500 companies who need people to advertise for them.  By initially signing up for a few offers with these companies and then following the system to get others to sign up too, you can get paid by these Fortune 500 companies.

To find out more about Instant Payday Network, read this article.

Instant Payday Network has excellent training both on the IPDN site and on a Facebook page (which you are invited to once you join).  In fact I would say the training I have found in Instant Payday Network is some of the best free training I have ever seen.

And is Jeff Buchanan still around now he’s a top leader in Empower Network?  Yes, Jeff is still very much on board with the Instant Payday Network business and in fact is still the person getting the most leads into his IPDN business each month as you can see below!  It’s only 3rd April today and Jeff has had 18 sign-ups!  Funnily enough this is the first time I’ve seen anyone beating him :-)  WTG Lavan!!

And this is a great time to mention Carin Petty, who is an amazing leader in Instant Payday Network and constantly produces excellent and funny videos, admins the Facebook Page and generally guides and helps all of us.  So a big shout-out to Carin!

instant payday network


Who Is Jeff Buchanan Of Instant Payday Network?

In fact Jeff has added Empower Network as an extra step inside Instant Payday Network, so that once people are getting to grips with earning good money inside IPDN, they can ‘scale up’ their business to include Empower.  

This will take them to the big money, as Empower Network has several high ticket products, and will definitely speed up the process of making the bigger money as you need to sell far less of the high ticket products to make good money.

I think IPDN is a great starter product for Empower Network, because many people aspire to join Empower but just do not have the resources available to them to get in at the level required to make good money.

Whichever way you look at it, Jeff Buchanan is one of the good ones!  Although he is nowadays dubbed a ‘guru’, I really don’t think this is a name that you would hear Jeff describing himself as!

I hope you have enjoyed my review of Jeff Buchanan and you understand more of ‘who’ he is.  If you enjoyed this article I would be grateful if you could like, share and particularly comment on it below.  Thanks

An Empower Network Review You Will Probably Never Bother To Read

I am going to give you a full explanation of Empower Network; what you get for your money, where that knowledge can take you, my views on Empower and probably more importantly to you, the pro’s and the con’s!

An Empower Network Review You Will Probably Never Bother To Read

(If you really can’t be bothered to read it, just scroll down and read my conclusion at the very least!  Ta)

Empower Network was set up by David Wood and David Sharpe on 31st October, 2011.

Both of ‘The Daves’, as they are commonly known, were involved with Network Marketing in some way before they built Empower and both have a fascinating story of how they overcame hardship, from living in a van (David Wood) to overcoming addiction (David Sharpe).

When they met at an event at David Wood’s house in Costa Rica, they immediately clicked and began discussing the problems people face in Network Marketing and together they began to have a vision of helping the ‘average person’ to succeed in the business.

That vision became Empower Network.


Empower is a Network Marketing company and as such you get paid commissions for getting other people into the company.  Once you join Empower Network you become part of an online blogging community offering tools and training on internet marketing in the ‘make money online’ niche.  

You can simply use the platform as a blog for your own niche or business, or you can become an affiliate of the products, making money by promoting the products to other people using the training in the back office.  

Empower Network Products

The Empower Network products are constantly evolving and changing to keep up with the ever-changing way of marketing on the internet.

At the present time there are eight main products in Empower Network and I will give you a simple overview of each product. 

1) Viral Blogging System

Costs $25 per month

The Viral Blogging System is the first and indeed the ‘flagship product’ from Empower Network.  It consists of your own personal blog; in fact you can set up as many blogs as you like.

This is a very ‘newbie friendly’ and quite simple and comes with training on the 8 Core Commitments to help you succeed with Empower.

I have to come clean here, although I’m sure those of you with sharp eyes will already have noticed that this review is published on my own blog and not the Empower Blog, which I obviously also have.

My explanation of this is that although I enjoy using the Empower Blog, and do regularly publish articles on it, I am very aware that Empower owns that blog, and if I did something they did not like, they could close it down.  

My WordPress blog on the other hand is my own, and Empower has no rights over this blog.  

I also feel that using my WordPress Blog gives me more SEO options.  As long as I update it regularly, it seems to do well in Google Searches.  Another biggie is that this blog is great for branding ME, not just Empower.  Therefore if I wanted to move companies in the future, I would still be getting great rankings with my Sue Collier.net blog.

2) Viral Blogging Academy

Cost $297

The Viral Blogging Academy wasn’t in the original list of Empower Network Products, but was added as many people struggled to know what to do with their new blogging platform.  This product answers the questions everyone was asking and really gets you started in the right direction with your Viral Blogging System.

3) Inner Circle Mastermind

Costs $100 per month

The Inner Circle audios are very much ‘mindset’ training.  They are meant to motivate and inspire you to achieve your dreams.  There are over 100 audio’s available at the moment and new one’s are constantly uploaded.

These are great to listen to when you are relaxing or driving and really do give me some amazing ‘golden nuggets’ on business building as well as being inspirational.

4)  Costa Rica Intensive

Costs $500 One Time

This is probably my least favourite of the Empower Product and probably the oldest, being from before Empower Network started I believe; sometime in 2011.  

It’s still a worthwhile product though and full of inspirational ideas I hadn’t heard before.

What you get is eleven videos of a small event of top marketers discussing top-level stuff such as ‘scaling up’ your business, teamwork, persuasion and building authority.

5)  $15K Formula

Costs $1,000 One Time

This one is my (and many other people’s) favourite product.  Mainly I believe because it is very much a ‘how to’ product, showing you effectively what’s working now, shown by top marketers in every area of marketing, be it Facebook, YouTube, Blogging; literally walking you through every marketing area.  All the top leaders in Empower are here, not just the Daves. 

Great stuff and well worth the price.

8)  Masters Course

Costs $3,500 One Time

The Masters Course is the absolute top-level training offered inside Empower Network.  The actual retreat cost $5000 to attend, plus air fares and of course hotel costs, so I suppose the price is value for money !

The Empower Network Masters Course is where the ‘big money’ is made when you are an affiliate, and can build up to a substantial monthly income.

To me, the most important thing to remember about the Masters Course is that once you have bought the course, you are position for those ‘big money’ days! :-)

There are lots more products in the Empower Network back office, but these are all the ‘Core’ products.  I will eventually get a review of the other products out, but of course they are all high value products.

Empower Network Affiliates

Cost $19.95 per Month

In order to promote Empower Network (well in order to get commissions on the products!) you need to be an affiliate.  You also need to own the product you are promoting.  

Therefore if someone joins under you, purchasing everything up to and including the 15K Formula, and you have only up to the Inner Circle for instance, you would get commission on first three products but the rest of the commissions would carry on up to the person above you who has the Costa Rica Intensive and the 15K Formula.

Compensation Plan

You get paid 100% on any product apart from the Masters Course which costs $3,500 but you get $3000.  

Of course 100% is great, but you do have to pass up your 1st, 3rd, and every fifth sale after that — on every product you sell.

Now I agree, no-one wants to do that, but me, I’m ever the optimist and my thinking is this:-

Everyone you get in under you has to do the same, so with no extra work, you are going to be picking up sales from everyone below you, without any extra effort! 


What Do I Need To Do To Get Results?

It’s not going to be easy!  Nothing to do with Internet Marketing is easy. You will need to be teachable, focused and prepared to work consistently.  

Or alternatively have the money to invest not just in the products but in paying for advertising.

But here is a basic list of what’s going to be involved.

  1. Buy the products and start learning how to market on the internet.
  2. Spend most of your time (say 80%) taking action and working and the rest (20%) studying.
  3. Develop the correct mindset for success by listening to the audios everyday.
  4. Focus on driving traffic daily to get your offer in front of as many eyes as possible.
  5. Start building a relationship with people you get on your email list


  • Company is very well-known because of all the hype and noise (can also be a con!)
  • Products are excellent (15K particularly)
  • Sales Funnels are brilliant and convert well, work very hard for you
  • Amazing leaders, team spirits and culture
  • Very few places you could make such high commissions


  • Just like any Internet Marketing/Network Marketing business there is a steep learning curve
  • Although there are some lower priced products, the high ticket products, really are ‘high ticket’
  • It’s not a clear-cut system as in: Do this, then this, then this
  • Lots of hype and noise surround the company (can you hack it?)

Empower Network Review – Final Thoughts

 So that’s pretty much all I have; I will be writing more about Empower Network so I can give you all the information you could possibly require to make an informed decision.

But my personal philosophy is that I don’t love Empower Network; I don’t like the over-hyped-ness  and general ‘loudness’ of Empower.  I (still) don’t like the word ‘wussy’ that they seem to apply about anyone not in the same frame of mind as the Dave’s.

I still prefer a gentler approach to marketing and would prefer that everyone can make an informed decision about whether or not they wish to join.  I don’t feel people should be made to feel ‘lesser’ (or a wussy) because they decide Empower is not for them.

Maybe that’s an ‘age thing’?  Yes, I’m a Granny; I’m that old :-)

And the Dave’s are learning all the time, so maybe Empower Network will evolve over time.  I think it has changed and improved already.

But for all my dislikes, you can REALLY make some serious money in Empower and isn’t that what we are all here to do?  Empower Network is the ‘vehicle’ I have chosen to use to gain money and more importantly FREEDOM in my life.  And again more importantly, my children and my grandchildren’s lives.

And not loving Empower gives me more focus on what other people are looking for and how they can get it without jumping on the Empower bandwagon.

You DON’T have to be loud and hypey to make Empower work for you!

Empower Network Review






PS  If joining Empower is too rich for you just now, I have an alternative that leads into Empower…….eventually!  Well actually it leads into Empower whenever YOU want, but the costs to join and start making money are waaay lower – cheap, one time and could even be free for you!  It’s called Instant Payday Network and it’s run by a top earner in Empower Network, Jeff Buchanan.  Feel free to check it out here!


Instant Payday Network – Real or Fake?

Is Instant Payday Network the real thing, or is it a fake?


Hi, Sue Collier here and today, as you can see, I want to talk about Instant Payday Network.  

As most of you probably know I am involved with Empower Network and I am getting results.  However I am often asked how someone who has little or no money to invest can get involved with Empower.

After researching and thinking about it for some time, I came across Instant Payday Network.  Although I didn’t realise it at the time, this site actually leads into Empower Network as their ‘big money step’.  

It was set up by a bloke called Jeff Buchanan, who is one of the high earners in Empower, which says bucketloads for the system.  Think about it; if Jeff wasn’t still making money with Instant Payday Network but was making loads of money in Empower, why would he continue to run IPDN?

Well obviously I have joined Instant Payday Network, and I can tell you Jeff is still very much involved, in fact this month alone (March 2014) Jeff has brought in 208 new members to Instant Payday Network himself!  That should tell you that this business is still going strong!

 And why wouldn’t it?  It is VERY low cost to join and may even be free for you!  I personally live in the UK and this opportunity is mainly based in the USA and Canada, and although it is available in the UK, we have much fewer offers available in the MyCashFreebies site.  

I had to pay £30 (about $49) to complete one offer in Express.MyCashFreebies and two offers in Double.MyCashFreebies to get my one credit.

But remember this is something you only have to do ONE TIME!  

This is the only time you will have to pay for anything (if indeed you had to in the first place).

Definitely worth a look; don’t dismiss this out of hand as you may not have to pay anything at all.

What happens is that you join Instant Payday Network, you will be instructed by Jeff to join the two MyCashFreebie sites above and complete offers to the value of one credit at each site.  

Once you have done this, you can set up your IPDN back office and immediately start to advertise your link.

There is tons of training in the back office, and if that’s not enough we have an amazing Facebook group with just so many happy, friendly members helping you with anything you are having problems with.  

And again, bucketloads of excellent training on getting those payments flowing into your bank account daily.

And then there is step 4, where you can choose to become involved with Empower Network, once you are making plenty of money with IPDN.  This will ‘scale up’ your income to a whole other level! :-D

But first things first, go here now and watch Jeff Buchanan’s video, enjoy his ‘silvery tongued’ wisdom and follow his instructions and you will be well on your way to becoming a proper, fully fledged internet marketer!

One last word of warning though!  This is NOT a get rich quick scheme.  


No one is going to pass you money on a silver platter.

You will have to take action but when you start to get those little ‘ca-ching’ sounds saying that you’ve been paid, you will not be able to stop grinning!
