Bloggers and soon-to-be bloggers are getting excited over the 100% direct commissions in Empower Network. Before you go full-blast, let’s explain a couple of things first…
It’s not really 100% percent commission. I mean, not in the mathematical sense.
Let’s say you joined Empower Network because of the recommendation of your friend Mark. Based on the direct commissions rule, you are paying Mark directly for the blogging and training service that you are getting.
Now let’s suppose you told your friend about EN, and she says: “Yes, I want to gain more traffic while earning 100% direct commissions too!”
Your friend, let’s call her Tina, joins and Tina directly pays you the monthly subscription fee. In that case, you earned a 100% direct commission.
Now what happens when you tell your other friend, John, and he avails of the blog traffic and marketing service. He will end up directly paying your buddy Mark.
Wait… What Happened To My 100% Direct Commission?
What happened is called a “pass-up”, which is done to encourage you to help others. Mark is encouraged to help you, because he knows that the 2nd, 4th, and 6th person who buys the marketing service on the strength of your recommendation will end up directly paying him (Mark).
Waitaminit, Kapeng Mainit… My Commission Is Only 50 Percent?
Mathematically, yes your commission is only 50 percent. Let’s assume you successfully market the traffic and training system to 6 paying customers, you will get directly paid by 3 of those people.
After those first 6 paying customers, every 5th customer you successfully market to will end up directly paying Mark, or the person you are directly paying for the service. With a bit of math we see that your commission is actually 80% after your 6th customer.
Meaning, out of customers #7 to #11 (that’s 5 customers), you will get paid directly by 4 people (customers 7 to 10), while Mark (or the person you’re paying directly) will get paid by customer number 11.
But I Want My 100 Percent!
Please… relax. Empower Network encourages you to help your customers.
Do you remember Tina, your first customer? When you help her learn to blog and do online marketing, her 2nd customer will end up paying YOU.
So when you help and train Tina, and she ends up successfully marketing to 6 people, you will get paid directly by 3 out of those 6 customers.
And there is your 100% direct commission.
You blogged and did online marketing, and this brings in 6 people. You receive direct payments from 3 people.
You helped Tina, she blogged and did online marketing, and she brought in 6 people. You receive direct payments from 3 out of 6 customers of Tina.
Your total payments will therefore come from 6 people.
How Do I Help Others, If I’m Just A Beginner?
We will share with you the location of additional training areas in Facebook, and we will show you how you can help your customers access those special pages.
(The Empower Network service has a good internal training area. Fortunately, other experienced people have also published solid online marketing training in some Facebook Groups, and we will add you to those groups after you become a member of the Empower Network Bloggers Team.)
In other words, YOUR customers will value and appreciate YOU, because it will be you who will give them access to those basic, intermediate, and advanced materials (at no extra cost).
Empower Network Encourages You To Work And Help Others
If you’re just thinking of yourself, then EN is not for you.
If all you want to do is blog and make money online just by your lonesome self, then please do not join EN. If you have no time to even tell your customers where they can get additional training or where they can view useful marketing videos, then you’re better off doing something other than Empower Network.
On the other hand, if:
- You are serious about blogging on a regular basis.
- You enjoy helping your customers.
- You look forward to gaining new friends and nurturing existing friendships.
- You would like to point others to online training that will help them in their home based online business.
- You like to read, blog, and teach.
- You have a project or advocacy that you are deeply passionate about, and which you need money to finance.
- You want something more than just extra website visitors for your existing blog, and an extra source of income.
