Earlier today, I sent you an email that may have made you a little angry - and I just wanted to say THANK YOU for actually opening my emails, and reading them carefully.

(If you missed that email here's the link.)

That email had some strong language in it and I meant every word.

I am getting very tired of getting emails from people on my list complaining about how they are not successful but don't even open my emails and follow the directions.

Over the next few weeks, there are some very big things going on so when you get an email from me...


I am trying to give you tools to make you successful.

If you want to be successful, you've got to do your part.

Here is another strong message...

and again I mean every word.

If you expect to make 10, 20 or 30K a month but are not willing to do the work or spend money (yes you have to spend money) or even follow directions...


I am going to have a successful team, with or without you.

If you are willing to do the things listed above...

Welcome to our team and I look forward to seeing your success.

It's not just reading my messages that's going to get results, though - it's learning to follow instructions carefully.


In the last 2 1/2 years - we've directly created 10 millionaires.

Who are they?

People who READ my emails - and also FOLLOW instructions.

Sometimes (like today) -- I'll tell you to click on a link.

Click Here Now, It's URGENT.

When I tell you to click on a link - do us both a favor, and just click it, okay?

Because if you can FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS...

...I can help you get the results you want.

Today - I told you to click this link, and watch the video.

You may have clicked it - but not watched the whole video.

Let me ask you an important question:

Is that following instructions?


It's not just about clicking the links I tell you to click - or opening and reading emails.

It's about following instructions, and learning how to get the results that you want.

Does that make sense?

Today - I'm sending this AGAIN because I want to MAKE SURE that you watch the video all the way through.

You will need to give your email (I've already got it so don't worry) because that is how I know that you are serious.

The video is powerful, and is part of a series that is going to break down the 'science' of traffic and conversions.

Click Here, and Watch It Now.

I'm interested in what your thoughts are. Go to this link and leave a comment at the bottom of this article.

P.S.  If you actually clicked the link earlier, and watched the video all the way through...

...congratulations, you're on your way.

If not, click here, and follow the assignment now.

Now Is The Time…


The number one biggest problem that plagues online marketers is lead generation.

If you have been in marketing for any time at all you have heard the phrase ‘The Money is in The List’. But the problem has always been how to get that list, and more importantly, how to get a quality list.

If you are struggling with this problem, I’ve got a solution that will change everything.

If I told you that you can learn from the marketer who made over 700k in less than 1 month, would you be interested?

What about learning from a marketer who made over 3 million dollars in 1 year?

How about learning from someone who got 100,000 visitors and 40,000 leads in 1 day?

These are all the same person and very soon you can learn from him exactly how you can begin to create amazing results in your business.

This will be available very soon. That’s right, it’s not available yet but you want to get it when it becomes available.

I have gotten an inside look and even participated in part of the creation of this product and it is by far the most amazing product I have ever seen.

Here’s why I am letting you know early.

You want to get YOUR team ready for this launch. To do that you need to take a few steps right now.

  1. If you are not a part of my team you need to go to this link and become an affiliate so you can get paid for your sales.
  2. Get registered for the video so you can get ALL the details.
  3. Send everyone you know to the same two links. (Make sure you change the links to your links).
  4. Sit back and wait for the money to start flowing in.

This is going to be HUGE so don’t miss this boat, you will regret it.

As a special bonus I am going to give everyone who registers for the video before Monday, March 24 2 free gifts.

  1. A very special marketing system that is doing amazing things.
  2. A video that I am putting the final touches on that when completed is going to sell for $49.95. This is going to give you a marketing plan that you will not believe.

To get these, all you have to do is register for the video. You don’t have to buy anything, just register and watch the video.

Please don’t delay, this is going to be huge and I don’t want you to get left behind.

Talk soon,

Brian Elrod


P.S. I cannot guarantee any income, that will be completely up to you. 

I am often puzzled at how many people want a change in their life but are afraid to take the simplest steps to get there.

I hear all the time that someone wants out of their job but won't watch a video that is going to show them exactly how to do that.

Or they tell me that they want to spend more time with their family but won't take a FREE gift that will give them a step by step plan to do just that.

We are raised to have a mentality that tells us that we have to have a 9 to 5 job so we can have a steady paycheck no matter what the consequences or the out come. This mentality is keeping people in a position where they are losing families and even killing themselves.

When I was in that situation I was rewarded with THREE heart attacks all brought on by stress.

The JOB situation leads to no secure retirement, no family time, and no real joy in our lives. How many times have you heard about someone who dreams of going on vacation somewhere or living a certain lifestyle but NEVER gets to fulfill those dreams because of their JOB?

I have a better way for you and all you have to do is take it.

Go right now to http://secret.myleadscoach.com/ and sing up to watch this very special webinar.

Please don't let this opportunity pass you by.

Distributor Freedom, Cross Recruiting, a call to Ethics, and a Declaration of INTENT.

Originally, this blog post was intended to be longer, and more of a ‘formal’ declaration to the greater Network Marketing industry.

Unfortunately, in the process of massively re-engaging with our field leadership, remaking all of our core sales material, planning 3 regional events, launching a weekly bonus pool, and otherwise turning on ‘supernatural-beast-mode’ I don’t have time - so I’m going to keep this a rather concise, yet detailed enough rant to get the point across.


Most of this was covered in a conference call I did about 3 weeks ago, which you can listen to, and freely share in this post.


For an official stance, I decided to write this, to directly set straight an unfounded criticism and myth being perpetuated by either people who are trying to sell our affiliates and customers their products using unethical, dishonest tactics, or from straight misunderstandings.


So we’re going to hit the rumor first, and then come back to the message, and the real purpose of this blog post.


The Rumor Goes Something Like This:


Empower Network won’t allow you to promote multiple offers, or multiple Network Marketing businesses.  They randomly changed their terms of service several weeks ago, and are terminating people who are promoting multiple affiliate products.


Truth:  Empower Network was built by marketers, for marketers.  You can promote whatever you want here - that is not our business to monitor what businesses you want to build, and we have never terminated a single person (ever) for promoting 2 deals - or even 50.  In fact, we’ve allowed people to keep their checks who have left Empower, promoted other things, and directly bashed us to their email lists.


The REASON we do that is because of a fundamental belief that this company was founded with, that if you’re an affiliate, you’re an INDEPENDENT affiliate, and therefore can pick and choose what you want to market - and if we want to keep you, you must have freedom, and be here of your own free will.


See below on our real message for more.


We also didn’t change our terms of service, we re-organized them to be easier to read - except for adding a prohibition against directly and purposefully targeting other people’s teams in Empower Network if you’re an affiliate here - which I think you’ll agree, is a slimy, unethical business practice.


However, in re-organizing our terms of service, we did realize there are things in there that we don’t enforce anyways, never have, and are in the process of removing or rewording to be in line with our actual message.


Now, the reasons, message - and real INTENTION and MESSAGE of Empower Network:


The direct sales, affiliate marketing, and network marketing professions all GROW and attract new affiliates by a direct and specific message of freedom.


Whether it is financial freedom, time freedom, or the freedom to operate your business how you want - the message itself is and always has been freedom.


However, ‘freedom’ is the farthest thing from reality in most direct sales companies.  I had first hand experience in this when a team of affiliates left Empower Network in January of 2012, and joined a well known vitamin company.


They joined, taking as many people from Empower Network to that company as humanly possible, and in the process said some things that in all honestly — would have created a direct ‘termination response’ from every single Network Marketing company I’ve ever heard of.


However, the only thing we 'Terminate' at Empower Network, is wussy commissions.


So instead of turning into the ‘terminator’ — I did the unthinkable.


I called them, and said:


“Hey dudes - I love ya.  You come from here.  Your team comes from here.  You have a big check here - and it’s not going anywhere.  Can you do me a favor and knock it off?”


Bam!  Problem solved.  Amazingly, they all just stopped.


Because I just loved on em and gave ‘em all a big cosmic hug instead.


Here’s the funny thing, though:


Later, all these guys saw Empower Network taking off, and the truth was - their checks and their teams kept growing here.  So one day, Lawrence Tam (yes, he was on the team) he decided to start promoting Empower Network again.


He sent an email to his list, and…


The company they joined terminated him, Layla and Toby Black, and about 60-70 others.


It blew my mind — because that whole team had come from here, and we didn’t care.


The other company though, they threw a damned hissy fit.  I literally couldn't believe it.


So Lawrence came back, started building, and you know what?  He’s now one of ten “million dollar earners” at Empower Network.  Would have been pretty retarded of me to terminate him, wouldn’t it?


So I’m at our “FREEDOM” conference in Miami this January (appropriately named, right?) and run into a bunch of reps from another well known, international Network Marketing company.


Here’s the funny thing:


This company has a list of ‘competing companies’ — however, Empower Network isn’t on the list.  So you’d think an ‘independent distributor’ can do what they want, right?


Well, it turns out that ‘independent distributor’ has lost it’s meaning.


Because this whole team got terminated from big dumb company X for just being in Empower Network.  One of the reps asked a big wig at the company ‘what the hell?  I thought I was an independent rep?’


— and you know what the leader told them?


“You can’t do what you want here.  This is Corporate America with a 1099.”


Well excuse my language when I say … 


“What the F*%&?”


That certainly isn’t why I got involved as an ‘independent rep’ … that certainly isn’t why I STAYED an ‘independent rep’ … and that CERTAINLY isn’t why I STARTED Empower Network.


I fell in love with this profession for the message of Personal Freedom.


Now, with freedom comes responsibility, as the father of spider man would say, so this doesn’t give us a ‘Green Card’ to do unethical stuff… because life has a way of biting back, even if it’s not against the rules.


However - for heaven’s sake - if this is what Network Marketing has turned into, excuse me when I say “screw that.  I'll live in a Van instead.”


See, I believe that if you bring a customer to Empower Network - it was your hard work, your time, your effort, your hard earned advertising dollars, YOUR relationship.


And if you brought them here - you DESERVE to be paid according to our published compensation structure, regardless of whatever else you want to do.


Now that comes REGARDLESS of my personal philosophy, where PERSONALLY I believe that you’re much better off focusing your energy on one thing if you are like MOST PEOPLE.


I believe it’s better for you.


I believe it’s better for your team.


I believe you’ll be happier.


I believe you’ll make more money.


HOWEVER, you’re here to do what YOU WANT - NOT what I want.


If you don’t agree with me - you’re free to do what you want, as long as you’re following laws and ethics.


So I don’t care if you promote your vitamin deal.


I don’t care if you promote your skin care deal.


I don’t care if you promote your drop shipping deal.


I don’t care if you promote your attraction marketing system.


And if you want to quit - there’s a cancel button under every subscription product in the members area - you’re welcome to do whatever you want to do.


Because you’re an "INDEPENDENT" AFFILIATE.


To me that means I must win you over by the virtue of my leadership, by treating you right, by paying you more, by creating a more powerful message, by creating a better company, a better vision, a better culture, a SAFER place where you can BE who you WANT TO BE.


So that’s my mission here.


I will keep my leaders around by my example.


I will keep my team around by my vision.


I will keep my customers around by my service, and by giving them the BEST PRODUCTS.


And you are FREE to stay.


And you are equally FREE to go.


I just ask that you follow the laws, dammit.


Do income disclosures every time you talk about income claims.  A simple: * See our Average Earnings Disclosure HERE. in all your communications will do.  You can even affiliate code it by adding ?id=YOURUSERNAME to the end of the link.


I ask that you not market or build your business by infringing on other people’s trademarks, images, and copyrights.  It’s unethical, people hate it, and it sucks.


Let’s build a business in the marketplace based off of VALUE …


… and do whatever other businesses you want - just understand there are ‘life consequences’ to doing lame stuff.  It will bite you, eventually.


Empower Network is here to stay.


Our message is a message of freedom.


Our values are here to LIFT UP and EMPOWER others - not to tear them down.


So let’s lock arms, and fight the forces of evil.


Thank you for allowing me to clear up the B.S.


LISTEN to the call in this post - it will blow your mind how "on your side" we are at Empower Network.


And if you’re a big, evil company that terminates people because of your huge ass ego — I think you suck.  


Also, if you're a slimy hairbrain that is targeting our people, and lying to them to try and recruit them into your deal - you suck, too.


Make a note of that.


On your side,

-David Wood

Internet Marketing Made Easy


4 Easy ways to Increase Traffic to Your Web Site

Just like there are no magic weight loss cures, there are also no magic ways to earn money from home without a great deal of effort, there is no one simple solution to guarantee Internet marketing success. However, Internet marketing is not overly complicated and many business owners can enjoy at least some degree of Internet marketing success with only limited knowledge about the industry.

This article will discuss some of the simplest Internet marketing strategies home business owners can implement to promote their business online.

Forum Marketing

Participation in industry related forums is one of the easiest ways a home business owner can use the Internet as a promotional tool. Forums are websites which provide a forum for Internet users who share a common interest to share information related to this subject or just socialize. Home business owners may opt to join forums which closely relate to their industry (or niche) or the products or services they offer.

This is important because doing this gives the business owners access to a group of Internet users who fall into the target audience for his products or services. It also gives the business owner the opportunity to promote his own website. Many forums allow users to place a link to their own website in their signature. Business owners who do this and also contribute useful commentary on the forums may attract potential customers via the link they place in their signature.

Additionally, some forums may even allow users to post links in the body of the message. This gives the business owner the opportunity to offer his link in response to questions and comments when doing so is relevant and offers something of value to the online conversation.

However, care should be taken to carefully review the terms of service and all guidelines on the forum before posting links to ensure this is not a violation of the policies of the forum. Failure to adhere to forum policies may result in removal from the forum or the posts being viewed as spam by other users.

Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

Another simple, but effective, Internet marketing strategy is to use search engine optimization (SEO) to assist you in achieving high search engine rankings.

While the concept of SEO can be rather complex and understanding the most effective strategies and how to properly implement them may take years of experience as well as continual education, the ability to hire a qualified SEO expert is as simple as knowing how to interview candidates and select the most qualified one. Handling your own SEO efforts can be rather difficult but hiring another person to take care of this for you is not only easy but it can have a significant impact on your website traffic because high search engine rankings typically translate to improved web traffic. This is because Internet users trust search engines to serve the most relevant websites first and typically only visit the best ranking websites when they search for a particular term.

Internet Marketing

Similarly another simple way to enjoy Internet marketing success is to hire someone to plan and execute your Internet marketing strategy. Just like SEO, Internet marketing is essentially a full time job. Business owners may have a great deal of difficulty trying to run their business and organize their Internet marketing. Outsourcing this work eases the burden on the business manager and will likely produce more favorable results.


These strategies often seem overwhelming and very expensive, especially for the new home business owner. There are programs and websites that can make these tasks much easier and help control expense. Finding out about these programs and websites are often very difficult if you don’t know where to look. This is why it is extremely important for the new marketer to find a mentor or group that has experience and knowledge in marketing.
