Military Spouses [MilSpouses] have been challenged in the workplace for years. At some point, you have been introduced to a home-based business. You were introduced to it as an alternative to finding a job, and as a means of making money from home, with the flexibility to work around your family and your soldier spouse.
Add to that…
If you’ve been in the home-based business industry, and you’ve been trying to grow your business on the internet, you have a blog or have considered blogging. To be truthful, if you plan to be visible on the internet at all, blogging is not an option.
My personal experience with blogging is that it has taken me 2 years to get my personal blog just the way I want it. This includes design, widgets, plugins etc... and even still, I find there is something I could do better or a better tool I could use, or a different I could implement to monetize my blog that will help me make money by blogging.
If you fall into either of those categories, read on...
Wouldn’t you agree that we’re in this industry to make money?
Whether network marketing, affiliate marketing, internet marketing or in the traditional sense, we're all looking for that one thing that will help reach that ultimate destination – being rich.
OR… for the politically correct folks – Financial Freedom.
Created by entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs, Empower Network is a "plug and play" viral blogging and marketing system modeled after creator David Wood's own personal blog. The idea of Empower Network was in the works nearly a year and was developed out of David's own desire to earn extra income. Mind you, he was already generating a substantial amount (somewhere around $30k a month). He also knew that the only way he would be able to earn more was to help his team make money as well.
Empower network eliminates the need for web hosting, graphic designers, and advanced knowledge that is generally required for self hosted blogs. Speaking from experience, 95% of the time I spent in the very beginning was in the "how-tos" - so much so that I rarely put any content out because I was always figuring out how-to do something. I gained some GREAT skills, I missed out on a ton of opportunity to generate consistent readers to grow my list.
Most people really do believe "If you build it they will come". That only worked in that movie ‘Field of Dreams’. That is NOT the way it works when it comes to the internet and blogging. There are SO many sites out there offer information the average person becomes overwhelmed after looking at the first page of Google. If you don't possess an in depth knowledge of SEO or least have the resources to outsource this task, all your hard work may be for nothing. You'll blog for a few months, not generate much of a response (if any) and quit, or at best lose your level of consistency.
So you have a blog, the design is everything you want it to be. Your SEO game is on point - you've dominated keywords, on page, off page, backlinks - EVERYTHING! Your email autoresponder is going crazy with new leads and yet.... you still haven't made any sales. If you have, it's not enough to write home about. The reality is, even if you master getting traffic to your site, in order to make money with blogging, you have to know how to convert your traffic into sales - a skill very few of us in the home based industry actually possess. Yes, I said ‘US’.
We've all been here - You sign up for a business opportunity eyes wide shut. "This is it! This is the one!" you say to yourself. You call your mom, dad, spouse, ex-spouse, aunts, uncles, cousins, friends.... everyone. A couple sign ups come in and you think "Yes! This is the check I'm gonna show off to all the naysayers on Facebook!" The check comes in the mail - it's heavy. You rip open the envelope, pull it out.... and it's $50... or maybe it's $100. This can't be right? You should AT LEAST have $500. So you call your upline and they call their upline (b/c they don't really understand the comp plan either). Eventually you're referred to the back office where you find that little piece of fine print:
In order to qualify you must have one on the left, one on the right, two in the hand, one in the bush, 3 over the hill, your left leg in, your right leg out, do the Hokey Pokey and turn yourself around - ALL AT ONCE - to receive what you thought was money in the bank.
Ugh!! What a disappointment!
I'll be the first to say I've been there... Worked your A$$ off, and madder than a wet hen at what you received. To add insult to injury, you’ve killed your relationship with your warm market, because they made less than you.
One thing that is crucial to any business is growing new contacts.
You get this advice: Get 5 new names and numbers per day.
Well, if you’re a mom and ESPECIALLY a MilSpouse, getting 5 new names and phone numbers per day can be a challenge. Why?
Lack of a support system for your family.
Now, a lot of network marketing companies will say ‘you can connect with people with your children’. That works for a lot of people. It did not work for me.
Empower Network comes equipped with all the necessary tools for working your business.
Seriously… you can’t beat 100% commission. You earn what you work for and it goes straight into your bank account as soon as the sale is completed!
Empower Network is internet-based. You don't have to resign a position when you move. You don't have to look for a new job. The business you build is global and travels with you.
No more parties.
No more inventory.
Nothin' but the net. [Iinternet, that is...]
