What Is It?
This is a funnel to the iPAS system, which is a funnel to the Prosperity Team, which is a funnel to the Empower Network. Confused yet?
I have very negative opinions of the Empower Network (linked below), which is the “end game” here. There are many things about this MLM scheme which are not explained, namely that you will need to spend about $6,000 to purchase all their stuff, and that the 100% commission thing is a total lie.
Before You Buy:
How the hell does this keep happening to me?! I am really not interested in hearing about the Empower Network anymore, but somehow, I keep running into it. There are so many people pushing this product under the guise of other names.
What is not explained thoroughly enough, and what you need to know is that this is MLM. I dislike MLM and think it's a bad idea to get involved in any MLM program. And please be aware of the differences between MLM and legitimate online marketing. Aside from that, here's the scoop.
You will be selling a “blogging system” which is typically free (It's called WordPress). No legitimate business or person interested in online business would use this, except if you are trying to sell Empower Network. So, you are selling Empower Network subscriptions to people so they can sell more Empower Network subscriptions.
You also need to be aware of high-pressure sales tactics that you will be subject to once you are inside the sales funnel. They say things like “don't be a wussy”, and make you feel like you are not serious about your business unless you “go all in” (MLM-speak for spend 6 grand).
What I liked:
Chris Campbell is a good presenter, and makes a few good points. He says that success online is about having a great product, offer, system, and lots of traffic. I agree.
He is also honest about his association with Empower Network right from the beginning. Other guys promoting this company are not so honest.
Also, Chris Jones (his partner) makes the point to set an 18-24 month plan.
What I didn't Like:
Here are my full reviews of Empower Network, iPAS, and the Prosperity Formula. None of them received good scores. They all engage in over-hyped, misleading advertising tactics, among other deceptive and irritating things. Read those reviews to get an overview of what's going on, and if you want to see some comments and a video from REAL people that joined Empower network, read that review. But for this post, I'd like to concentrate on the Pizza Boy Millionaire thing.
Chris says that niche-specific products are highly competitive. I do not think that he understands the concept of niche marketing. Selling audio equipment is not a “niche”. Selling audio-equipment for Harley Davidson motorcycles is a niche. The whole concept of niche marketing is to be specific about your audience so you can reduce the competition. If you try to appeal to everyone, you will appeal to no-one.
Chris/Chris also engage in a decent amount of hype, talking about delivering “traffic at a flip of a switch”, showing pictures of a Hummer, and flashing gigantic checks of large amounts of money. These guru types always do this. They say, “I hate hype”. They they tell you how easy it is to make money with “no phone calls, no marketing experience, no internet experience” and stuff like that.
100% commissions is a lie! I talk more about this in the iPAS review (linked above), but this is an outright lie.
You make 100% commissions on ONLY SOME SALES.
Every 2nd, 4th, 6th, and every 5th sale goes to your “sponsor”….for LIFE. So if the 2nd person you refer is your Mother, and she buys all the products, you make $0! Also, if your first sale buys some of the expensive stuff ($3500), but you didn't buy it, you make $0!
One last thing – Empower Network blogs do not rank well in Google. Go ahead. Try to find one. Empower Network doesn't even rank on the first page for it's own brand. The Empower Network blogs simply don't rank. I have been working on One More Cup of Coffee for about 10 months, and I am on page 1, despite it also being a famous Bob Dylan and White Stripes song. Simply said, their product is not as “awesome” as they want you to think, and there are NO advantages to using an EN blog over a normal one like I have.
About Chris Campbell
In typical guru-fashion, Chris Campbell has started a number of products over the years, most notably The Pizza Boy Club (cash gifting which is maybe illegal), Global Resort Network, and My Celebrity Income, all of which are now defunct businesses. There are probably more out there.
Is this the type of person you want to trust with your money and time? How long before Chris moves onto the next “big thing” and leaves you in the dust? I'll let you decide.
Contrary to what Chris says about niche marketing, I think it's a great way for a newbie to start a profitable website. You can choose products or services based on your personal interests, and connect with real people looking to buy this stuff. I learned how to do it through an online business training center.
If you are an MLM person and looking for the “next greatest product”, you are free to make your own choices about Pizza Boy Millionaire and it's related products. If you are looking for an inexpensive and honest way to make money on the internet, this is not for you. There's a lot going on that they don't tell you, and selling these products will require a significant financial investment from you.
