Empower Network Setup Guide By following this simple, step-by-step guide, you’ll find it fast and easy to set up your Empower Network system to generate leads and sales.
How to Log Into Your Empower Back office You can log into your Empower Network Back Office by going to: http://www.empowernetwork.com/login.php
You’ll need to enter the USERNAME and PASSWORD you created when you originally joined Empower Network in the “Username” and “Password” Fields – and click the green “Login” button. If you have misplaced your username and password, click the link under the green login button that says “Lost Your Details? Click Here” – and you’ll be able to enter your email address (the same one you used when signing up with Empower) to have your username and password sent to you via email. Once you’ve logged into your Empower Network Back Office, it’s now time to set up your payment processing information – so you can accept payments from new Members you refer to Empower Network. 4|Page
Step #1: Setup Payment Processing In your Empower Network Back Office, look for the “My E-Wallet” Symbol:
Up close, it looks like this:
Click on the “My E-Wallet” button – and follow the instructions you’ll find on that page. It’ll walk you through setting up your payment processing system, step-by-step. Please note that there is a $19.95 per month fee to use the My E-Wallet payment processing system. However, that fee is lower than most stand-alone merchant accounts. If you’re an advanced user and have an Authorize.net Merchant Account, download the PDF “Core Checklist” which you’ll find under the “Fast Start” Training Tab in your Empower Network Back Office. This will walk you through this alternative payment method. However, we recommend using the easy-tosetup My E-Wallet System. If you need assistance from Empower Network’s Customer Care Department to help set up your payment processing system, Please submit an online support ticket with your specific problem (be as detailed as possible) through their online support system at: http://support.empowernetwork.com 5|Page
Step #2: Setup Your Autoresponder While Empower Network can collect your leads for you, I highly recommend that you sign up for an independent autoresponder service and plug it into Empower Network’s Back Office – so that the leads that you generate are your property.
1. First, you’ll need to sign up for an Aweber Autoresponder by going to http://www.aweber.com/ Aweber autoresponder offers top-of-the-line services – for incredibly affordable prices. In fact, Aweber is perfect for beginners and small business owners. You can set up your Aweber autoresponder account for just $1 for the first month by clicking this link: http://www.aweber.com/
Click the “Order” tab in the upper right-hand corner of Aweber to access the order page. You’ll be able to sign up for your first month for $1 – and then decide what discount package you want to continue with. Once you order your autoresponder, you need to create a “list” which you’ll use to capture the leads from your Empower Network system. 6|Page
2. Next, you’ll log into your Aweber Back Office at http://www.aweber.com/ – using the login name you selected and the password emailed to you.
Once you log in, click “Create and Manage Lists” at the top of the page:
On the next page, click the green “Create a New List” button.
On the next page, you’ll be asked to name a new list and set it up to start accepting optins from your Empower Network prospects. 7|Page
Under “Basic Information”, you’ll fill out: List Name: This is the name of your list. I recommend “empowerleads”. However, you can name it anything you wish. Just make sure it’s descriptive enough for you to know that these are leads that opted in from your Empower Network system. List Description: A short description of the list. I recommend “Empower Network Leads”. However, it can be anything that lets you know what the list is. From Name: This is the name that will appear in the header when your email your list through the autoresponder. I recommend including your first and last name. Address: This is the business or personal email address you want people to respond to you at.
If you wish to get an email notification every time someone is added to your list, enter your Name and email address under “Notifications” – and click the blue “ADD” button. You’ll now get an email every time you receive a new Empower Network lead. Click the green “Save Settings” button at the bottom of the page to save your work. On the next page, fill out your company name (it may be your personal name), your website URL (this can be your Empower Network Blog OR your Empower Network Affiliate Link).
Click the green “Save Settings” button at the bottom of the page to save your work. (Ignore the “Social Media/Sharing” and “Global Text Snippets” information for now.) On the next page, you’ll be setting up the “Confirmation Email” that your prospects get when they opt into your list through Empower Network’s lead capture page.
Select “Response Required: Please Confirm Your Request for Information” from the drop-down box under “Choose a pre-approved subject”. You can choose to remove Optin Confirmations. This will be up to you. If you choose to leave them on, then there is a chance that you will miss out on some leads because they won’t click on the confirmation email or they will forget about it. Personally we leave ours off, but you can choose to do whichever you choose. Below are the steps to leave confirmation on.
10 | P a g e
Click the tab that says “Edit Intro” and you’ll be able to edit the first 500 characters of your confirmation email.
You can use this paragraph, word-for-word, or feel free to edit as you see fit. “Thank you for visiting my site and opting in to view our 100% Commissions Video. Before I can send you to the information you requested, I want to be certain we have your permission. Please confirm your subscription by clicking the link below - and you'll be taken to the "100% Commissions" Video Page instantly. Next, click on “Edit Signature” and add up to 100 characters. Make sure to include your name. (Example below).
The “Require Opt-Ins on Web Forms” will automatically be set to “ON” and should remain that way.
11 | P a g e
Then, under “Success Page”, you want to add the direct link to the Empower Network Video. The exact URL you want to include is: http://www.empowernetwork.com/commissionloophole.php?id=(YOURID) Place (YOURID) in the URL above with your actual Empower Network ID – and enter that into the “Confirmation Success Page URL”.
Then click the “Save Settings” button at the bottom of the page to save all of your changes. Now, you’ll need to enter THIS NEW LIST NAME into your Empower Network BackOffice. Doing this will make sure that email addresses entered into your Empower Network system get added to your autoresponder. Log into your Empower Network Back Office – and click the “MY TOOLS” Tab. Then click the “Lead Capture” tab to go to your “Lead Capture Pages” page.
Click the green button that says “Click Here to Add Your Aweber List Name”.
12 | P a g e
Enter the “List Name” you entered when you created your list inside Aweber. (I recommended “empowerleads” – but make sure to use whatever list name you used when setting up this list in your autoresponder)
Then, click the “Submit to Change” button under the form. Your Aweber autoresponder is now programmed into Empower Network – and any leads that opt into your Empower Network lead capture page will automatically go into your autoresponder. Go ahead and visit your “Almost A Secret” lead capture page and put in a fake email address to test to make sure it works. You should get an email notification from Aweber saying that you have a new lead added to your list. Then delete the fake email address. http://www.empowernetwork.com/almostasecretphp?id=(YOURID)
13 | P a g e
Step #3: Setup Aweber Campaign Here we will show you how to setup your newly created Aweber account and list with an 80 email follow-up system that was crafted by highly successful Empower Network Marketers. It is very easy to setup, just takes a few minutes. Once you are you logged into your Aweber account and are at the main screen you should see your newly created Aweber list in the drop down box next to “Current List:” if it is not, click on the drop down box and then find your Empower Network list. Once you have your Empower List selected, hover over the blue “Messages” tab at the top, then click on “Follow-Up.”
At the bottom where it says “Use a pre-defined campaign by entering the campaign code:” you will enter this code to receive 82 follow up messages for your list. 14 | P a g e
Enter the following code: basic--fe531-$F$B and then hit Load Campaign. After hitting Load Campaign you will see 82 emails put into your list.
Next you will want to hover your mouse over the blue “My Lists” button and go to “List Settings.” Here you will need to personalize the following up messages and change the Global Snippets.
We are almost done. The last thing we need to do is change the links in the emails to YOUR affiliate links instead of mine.
This is very important pay close attention
15 | P a g e
Click on “Personalize Your List” center/top of the screen. From there scroll down to the Global Snippets section. You will need to change each of these sections. Click on Edit, Change to your information, and then hit Update. Once all settings have been updated hit the Save Settings button. It is smart to go ahead and use the links for Landing, Join and Global Webinar. Just go the
end of the URL and put in your Empower Network Username Once you have done that they should be good to go. You may want to optin to your own form so that you can receive these daily. That way you know they are working and the links are correct. Note: On the Follow Up page you can send yourself a TEST email to make sure it is working correctly.
16 | P a g e
Step #4: How To Setup Aweber Broadcast Here you will learn how to setup a Aweber Broadcast, which is a one-time email blast out to your list. It differs from a “Follow Up” message due to the fact that these are one time blasts vs. a continual email being sent out. Now that you have your own email list you can send your list broadcast messages For example, if Dave has a Monday night call or sends out some “list swipe”, you now have a list! To send a broadcast message to your list (broadcast sends it to all subscribers at once) Step 1: Click messages
17 | P a g e
Step 2: Create New Broadcast Message
Step 3: Copy and Paste (or write) your swipe into the HTML section. Step 4: Save Message
18 | P a g e
Step 5: Send TEST email to yourself to make sure it works correctly. Step 6: Press Queue To Blast The Broadcast To List
Broadcast messages are a great way to get leads to go to live events (events, webinars, calls). You can also use Broadcasts to provide real value to your leads by letting them know you posted a new blog post that may help them out in some way. Make sure to always send something that provides value otherwise you might turn them away from the idea. Use broadcasts to stay up to date with your leads. Build a rapport and connection with each of them. These relationships are what will help you make money. Your lists will come to see you as a trust authority in your niche and will start following you, opening your emails on a regular basis and join anything you do on auto-pilot when you blast out the links. You should be receiving daily/weekly emails from Empower Network creators Dave & Dave. In most of the emails they will tell you to send out an email to your list. These are great examples of how a broadcast can be utilized. You can also visit David Sharpes Email Swipe file to get his newly posted swipes that you can send out. 19 | P a g e
Step #5: Setup Domain Forwarding If you followed steps 1, 2, and 3, you can promote your Empower Network Affiliate URL and you’ll capture leads into your autoresponder and make money when people join Empower Network. Your Empower Network Affiliate URL is: http://www.empowernetwork.com/almostasecret.php?id=(YOURID) You’ll replace (YOURID) in the website address above with your actual Empower Network Username. However, as you can see, this URL is very long – and not only does it not fit easily into your advertising, it’s also easy for your prospects to accidentally mistype a part of the URL and for you to not get full credit for a referral. Therefore, it’s a good idea to buy your own original domain name and set it up to forward prospects to your Empower Network Affiliate URL. For example, let’s say you want to register Domain.com – and have it forward visitors to your Empower Network Affiliate Link: http://www.empowernetwork.com/almostasecret.php?id=(YOURID) As you can imagine, a shorter domain name like www.DOMAIN.com takes up less space in ads – and is easier for prospects to remember and type into their Internet browser. So your goal is to register a shorter domain name – and then set up “forwarding service” with your domain name registrar so that when people go to your shorter domain name – they’ll automatically be sent to your Empower Network Affiliate URL. Before searching for domain name, I recommend you brainstorming ideas and creating an initial list.Two word domain names are the best, but even a short, catchy three word domain name can work well. When brainstorming domain names, here are some rules to remember: Try to only use a .com domain name. Everyone continues to think of websites as .com. If you register .net only, you’ll lose some traffic that SEES your .net website – but assumes it’s a .com website. You can avoid losing valuable prospects if you register and promote a .com domain name. But in the end, .net and .org and .co are okay. 20 | P a g e
Don’t use hyphens in your domain name. For example, DomainExample.com is a better domain name than Domain-Example.com. IF the domain name has a dash between words, then you not only have to TELL the prospects there’s a dash between words, but also have to cross your fingers and hope they remember the dash. You can avoid this hassle if you’ll avoid domain names with hyphens. Also, domain names with numbers can be confusing to prospects. For example, Profit2Day.com might seem catchy, but you run into the risk of someone hearing “ProfitToday.com” and not being able to find your website. Other variations of this are using the number 4 instead of the word “for”. Avoid confusing your prospects when creating domain names. Brainstorm as many domain names as possible. You’ll often find that the “perfect” 2word or 3-word domain you want is already registered. Therefore, the best way to find the perfect domain name is to come up with A LOT of domain names. Once you’ve created a list of domain name ideas, go to http://www.GoDaddy.com/ and enter your list of domain names into the “Register” box on the main page. (To enter multiple domain names, you’ll need to click the “Click Here for Bulk Search” button you’ll see to the right of the larger blue “Search” button.
Click the search button – and the system will tell you which (if any) of your domain name ideas are available to register. If none of them are available to register, you’ll have to keep brainstorming domain name ideas until you come up with one that you want to register and use in your marketing.
21 | P a g e
Once you find a domain name that you are happy with, go ahead and purchase it. You can usually find a coupon online by going to Google and searching for “GoDaddy Promo Code.” Typically you can get a .com domain for $7.99 per year. At this point you will also be setting up an account with GoDaddy, which is a simple process. Just fill out information and you are done!
How to Forward a Domain Name: Once you have purchased the domain and are logged into your GoDaddy account you will be able to setup Domain Forwarding. This is a simple process. After logging in you will see this screen. Step #1: Click on the Launch button.
After clicking Launch, a new screen or tab will appear. Find your newly purchased domain name and follow these steps.
22 | P a g e
Step #2: Click on the domain name
After clicking on the domain name, it will bring up all the information about the domain. You are only focused on changing Forwarding. Step #3: Click on Manage next to Forwarding.
23 | P a g e
Step #4: Enter Empower Network URL and Click OK After clicking “Manage” next to forwarding, a popup will appear. It is here that you enter your Empower Network ugly link. http://www.empowernetwork.com/almostasecret.php?id=(YOURID)
After you enter your domain name, simply hit OK and then it should take a few minutes to propagate. After a few short minutes, test it out by typing your new domain name into the web address bar on your browser. Feel free to use any of your Empower Network lead capture pages here. You can change out the forwarding domain as many times as you would like! Note: If you have a domain already or have an existing blog outside of Empower Network you can use a WordPress plugin called “Pretty Link” that will create a link mask for you. There is a FREE version called Pretty Link Lite or you can opt to purchase the full version. http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/pretty-link/
