What Is It?

iPAS is an exclusive group that trains you how to sell subscriptions to Empower Network. I have a very, very low opinion of Empower Network, and highly recommend you stay away from this company. However, the video presentation of iPAS was pretty honest, so I can’t say too much negative about it.

Short Review:

Read my review of Empower Network to get the full picture why I recommend you do not get involved in this MLM pyramid scheme. Unfortunately, Chris Jones is misleads you to think that you make 100% commissions, which is definitely NOT true. Regardless of what type of training and support is offered in iPAS or the Prosperity Team, this is not something you want to purchase.

Notice: I have not joined the team, so there may be other things offered “inside” that I don’t mention in this review. Regardless, I cannot recommend it for reasons I feel are made clear in this review.

Before You Buy:

It sounds awesome……..

A new marketing strategy! He’s breaking all the rules! He’s got 3 super secret formulas that are going to change your life forever!

100% commissions!

Thousands of dollars per week!

They do the selling for you!

You don’t need a website, skills, or experience!

Sound to good to be true? Yeah, it is.

What I liked:

There are some things to like about the presentation Chris Jones gives for iPAS. The idea behind whatever it is that they offer is that with community, support, and mentorship, you will success in whatever you do.

This is totally true. In fact, I have no doubt that you can make money by doing this. But I can also make money collecting cardboard from my neighbors trash can. Just because you can make money doing something or “it works” doesn’t mean it’s ethical or a solid business plan.

He also talks about “momentum”, which I have found to be true. Any path to success starts very slowly, but as you collect small successes, they quickly snowball into bigger and bigger successes. This is especially true when you sell recurring subscriptions. A few sales a week quickly add up to decent-sized payouts.

He is also very honest about his affiliation with Empower Network, and the benefits of joining with him as your mentor. This is in stark contrast to groups like the Prosperity Team which do not tell you what you are buying before you actually buy.

What I didn’t Like:

Let’s get this 100% commission thing out of the way because it’s the dumbest, most deceptive marketing ploy out there today. Do you really think that any company can survive by paying you 100% of what you earn? Does that even make sense? There’s definitely a catch.

You get 100% of SOME commissions. You “Pass Up” your 2nd, 4th, and 6th commission. This means that you do NOT get those sales. so if you make 6 sales of $25, you get sales 1, 3, and 5. You give away the others to your sponsor. So you are making 50% of what you sell, not 100%.

After 6 sales, you continue to give away every 5th commission, so 11, 16, 21, and so on. This increases what you make, but the my point still stands.

And it gets worse.

It’s not just those sales. It’s all of the sales that those people produce.

On your pass-ups, their pass-ups will go to the sponsor too! So if you are following me, let’s say you refer Bob as you #1 sale. You get $25. If Bob makes 2 sales, you get his 2nd sale. You get $25 even though Bob makes a sale.

But if Jane is your #2 sale, and Jane then makes 6 sales. You get nothing. Your sponsor gets Jane’s #2, #4, and #6 sale. You get nothing.

I have no idea what percentage this works out to, but again. YOU ARE NOT RECEIVING 100% COMMISSIONS.

Also, it’s ridiculous that he accuses companies of being greedy for not paying 100% What planet is he on where it’s a company’s job to pay their sales people 100% of the profits they make? LOL. And while I’m on the topic of ridiculous statements, I was very unimpressed with his rhetoric about the economy and how many people have lost their jobs. He is just trying to pull your heart strings. It’s a marketing trick.

I also disagree with his comparison of EN to Apple, MLM people constantly try to legitimize their “systems” as legitimate businesses. People want to buy iPhones and iPads because they are useful. People want to buy EN blogs because they want to sell EN blogs. Empower Network’s products are not useful for people that want to build their own website and create an online business. They are only useful for people that want to sell more EN subscriptions.

Just a few more points I want to note that I disliked about iPAS or 3D Wealth Discovery or whatever it’s called.

  • Empower Network is not ranked 281st website in the world. These numbers are recorded by a flawed ranking system called Alexa.
  • I suspect his “traffic sources” are traffic exchanges or blog networks. These can seriously damage your website, are known for low quality clicks (no sales), and I recommend you stay away from them.
  • Though I though Chris Jones’ video was very honest, EN engages in high pressure sales tactics and deceptive marketing methods
  • The testimonials you are viewing are not for iPAS. They are for EN. Notice how they never say a product name? They only say “this system”. And are you sure that these people are being honest?

Final Review

Thumbs Down

Remember that your payments will not stop with the $25 fee. To purchase all of the products available and get credit for all sales that your downline makes, you will spend over $5000. Why would you spend $5k to sell something as sketchy as Empower Network? Even if you like MLM, at least choose something with some decent products.

What Now?

You can create a website about something you care about. Sports, crafts, hobbies, tech, cooking, health, and anything you can think of. You can make money from this website by promoting products from Amazon or other companies online. This is what I do to make money, and you can learn how to do it in my free email course.

You can also take a look at my review of the online business training center where I learned how to build my first profitable website. I offer 1-on-1 support for newbies, and there’s a whole community of people there that want to see your business succeed!

    In my opinion it doesn’t matter what business you are building whether it’s Empower Network, Wealthy Affiliate or something else, if you are building your business the right way it will involve list building, so really whatever product you promote doesn’t matter as long as it provides value to the end customer.

    The way you build the business should be the same, you have a sales funnel with a product at the end of it that gets promoted to your leads (subscribers… whatever you want to call them).- I think the model Empower teaches is very good. You build your list and use your blog as a tool to connect with that list and build a relationship. This increases trust in subscribers and they are more likely to buy from you.

    What’s your business model? I hope you include list building as your number 1 priority because it it’s not then you are doing something wrong.

    Good luck.

    • Nathaniell says

      I disagree that MLM is a business. It’s a money-making scheme IMO. A real business has products, and MLM is CLEARLY all about selling the “opportunity”, not the products.

      And list building is not the only way to make money. In fact, as far as I’ve seen, most people that tout “list building” as the best thing since sliced bread are the ones that spam my email inbox with thousands of one time offers, great deals, game changers, and never-seen-before BS. You can’t build an effective list if you don’t deliver value, and you can’t deliver value as a newbie if you don’t know what you are doing.

      List building is a a profitable way to build a business, but it’s not for everyone.

  2. DJ says

    So basically you wrote a blog- article to tear down IPAS & EN and their “system” only to turn around and promote-sell- market your own system??? LOL

    What makes you any different from them? Because from where I am standing you appear to be nothing more than:

    A snake oil salesman who is calling out and ratting out other snake oil salesmen

    C’mon “Nate” it clearly looks like you are either trying to eliminate your competition….or perhaps there’s a bigger play in the works……I notice that you promote “wealthy affiliate” as if they are different from EN……I’m sure if I type in the Google search bar “Wealthy Affiliate” I’m sure there are just as many shitty reviews on them as there are on Empower Network LOL

    At the end of the day your “smear”…. I mean review site is to help increase your marketing share of “suckers” I mean “subscribers to your system ;-) Its funny….thousands of blog sites/reviews where you guys all talk sh*t on each other’s online MLM business models.

    And truth be told that’s what all of you guys are…. you are nothing more than the new MLM schemes of the 21st century! I’m older than you and I remember back then pre-internet Amway, ACN, Noni juice, even Avon …….. were doing the same thing…they just offered actual products, they weren’t online as of yet , and they never ever talked shit about other MLM companies.

    That was then, now we are in the age of internet and guys like yourself are shitting on Empower Network, while promoting Wealthy Affiliate, and Empower Network people are shitting on you while promoting their system. All in an effort to reel in this generations new “suckers-subscribers” to your money making schemes.

    What’s old saying…. “feed a man a fish, and you feed him for a day, teach him how to fish and you feed him for a lifetime” well in the case of all of you online MLM guys…your model is “Teaching a guy how to fish, isn’t where it’s at…instead create a book on how to fish, and then teach the guy on how to sell the book to other fisherman LOL ;-)

    And that’s what all of you guys are doing….you all are simply trying to sell your money making systems to people who want to sell your money making systems to people who want to make money.

    The new Ponzi scheme of the 21st century ;-)

      I receive comments like this all the time so I’ll keep this short.

      1) Wealthy Affiliate is not MLM. It’s a training center. I hate MLMs.

      2) The information on my site is personal opinion. I think WA is is awesome, and I think iPAS is a scam. How do you think I should write the information so that it fits with your idea of what “honest” blogging is about?

      I spend every day teaching people how to make money from their websites, and I do it for free. Yes they pay their WA membership, and yes I make a commission, but the hours upon hours of help is for free. So you can say all you want about me, but I’m doing my best to help people succeed.

  3. Josh says

    Nathaniell, you’re so awesome bro. Thanks for a great review of this scam product. I wish I was as smart and handsome as you are. Happy Valentine’s Day.

  4. Austin says

    Wow really wish I would of looked this up sooner lol I went ahead and joined EN and paid for the ewallet so almost $50 down the drain and so far I see nothing good about this and now I am screwed on any kind of refund! Are there any products you recommend Nathan that are legit products?

    • Nathaniell says

      In the long term view, $50 isn’t much to learn that most of what you get with these types of products is HYPE. Get out while you can is my personal opinion. Read my review of Wealthy Affiliate to see why it’s the training I recommend. You can learn how to build a website about whatever you want, not just promoting “make money” products like EN. Let me know if you need anything else.

  5. Julianne says

    I have been trying for years to find a legit way to make money online. I have only experienced scams, and more scams. I work full time and would like to go to part time by replacing part of my income. How do I get started? I cannot financially afford to invest or pay for a membership. Would appreciate your input.

    • Nathaniell says

      There are many scams out there, and most of them will have you believe that if you invest in “their” system, that success is guaranteed. This is how they get into your wallet – with promises of easy, fast money.

      To be honest, if you cannot afford to risk any amount of money, then I think you should not be starting an online business. There are many cheap ways to start, but learning how to make money on the internet is going to take training and mentorship. You do not have to spend thousands of dollars to get started, but you need to be mentally prepared to risk some time and money. That’s part of being an entrepreneur.

      There are also many ways to learn this for free, but you need to have the focus and energy to find the information. Much of it is available on my website, for example a blog series I’m doing on How To Start a Niche Website. Even with that, you’ll have to pay for a domain (yearly fee) and hosting (monthly fee). That’s WITHOUT the training.

      So my suggestion is that if you have no money, wait until you are in a financial situation where the money invested in your business will not take away from your family, rent, or day-to-day expenses. Then you can focus on your business comfortably.

    Best Craig

    If people insist on doing MLM, find ones that actually offer a product. At least they will not get shut down by the government. Zeek Rewards was one of many that got shut down. This and Empower will be shut down as well. Regarding this 100% commission thing. What they are trying to convey is that the money does not go to corporate. And that is part of the problem. They can do this because they are not selling anything via corporate body. The money is just being exchanged about by the distributors who join these crap. MLM is not the problem either. Find one that actually sells a unique patented product that the corporate body actually invested lots of money to invent, produce, and improve.
