The following video is one of many that purport to be comparative, indicated by its title,”Empower Network vs Wealthy Affiliate.” Watch and see why it’s not.
Well, I hear much ado about this person’s experience with Empower Network. That may be her house in the background or it may not. She may be standing on her land with a beautiful Georgian pond replete with wildlife. It’s a wonderful setting if I do say so myself. And who’s to say this isn’t her home?
Personal testimonies are great! It gives folks a chance to see what’s inside a product, program or service from the perspective of the author. That’s what we all want. It’s a great way to help folks to make better buying decisions. It’s all pretty well-done here except one minor detail – at the time of this writing, this video only half-delivers…
So, I’m going to finish the job. I won’t have to go very far into either programs here, but the following is a comparative view of Empower Network and Wealthy Affiliate to see which one give you a better bang for your buck and the best quality of education.
What Are They?
In this section, let’s make a short comparison as to the nature of these programs. They both teach online marketing, are both online businesses and both offer a business opportunity for their members.
What Are Their Free Getting-Started Programs?
What do each of these offer in the way of a getting started program which allows new members to get in and acclimate themselves to their new surroundings? How much value comes with these free programs?
There is none. Yes, they will tell you that you can join for free. It costs $25/month to get a blog. If you stop paying this monthly amount, you lose the blog.
That $25/month is only good for having the blog. You cannot promote any of their products (except procuring the blog itself!) I can think of far better places to get a blog that doesn’t cost you anything!
To use Empower Network to get any sort of value out of it, you will not only need to put in vested interest in the other products, you will not be able to promote these and be compensated for them until you do. You will be pressured by other members to do so, else be shamed for not doing so!
You will get as much or more useful information from Wealthy Affiliate’s Starter Membership than you get with most paid programs. Hard to believe, but true.
You get two free websites and hosting to go with them. The sites are not plastered with advertising like those, even premium EN members must display on their blogs (which incidentally, are not truly free,) and they’re yours to keep if you decide WA isn’t for you. Not so with EN! You drop out from EN, they take the blog away from you.
Not only do you get real value in Wealthy Affiliate’s Starter Membership, you will never be pressured to join the Premium Membership if you choose not to.
WA’s Starter Membership comes with way too much to put into this blurb. Please head to my Review on Wealthy Affiliate to get the details.
