If you are looking for ways to make money online it is possible that you stumbled upon this very promising offer.As I have already mentioned in my very previous article , the Network Power Group was included in one of my tasks inside the Million Leads for Free website.
So , here I am today investigating the program created by Richard Trotter.I am already a member and I have a beautiful dashboard with many tools and features to play with.
The Dashboard of Network Power Group
- View leads
- Page statistics
- Email broadcast
- System capture pages
- My published pages
- Drag and drop editor
- View referrals
The quality of those elements is not exactly superb , I would say mediocre but they can be used for marketing campaigns.
The banners are pre-made designs to promote the Network Power Group and the capture pages did not impress me.
The drag and drop editor is not a free tool and to access it you have to pay for the LSN tool suite which costs $30 / month.There is another option to use only the editor at $10 / month.
What exactly is this program , how can someone make money with it?
When you enter the dashboard area there are 2 videos recorded by Richard Trotter who explains that this is a group of marketers that want to expand their reach and make money online.How they do that?
There is a 5 step procedure
Step #1 – 25 dollar legacy
In order to participate in the 25 dollar legacy you have to pay a monthly fee of $25.What you get?
A time saving social media dashboard.in which you can manage your social accounts on Twitter , Facebook , Pinterest and LinkedIn.There are many option to choose from
Basic account – $25 / month or $250 / year.You can monitor up to 2 social streams , you have 5 visual templates , 4 image uploads , 10 content searches per month and a few other features.
Pro account – $45 / month or $450 / year.No ads , 50 social streams monitoring , unlimited templates and image uploads.
Content writing service – $169.90 / month.If you need help on social their writers will profile your business and tweet on your behalf 3-4 times per day , post on Facebook 2 times a day , upload 5+ images every week.
I think that these services are way too expensive.Alternatively you can use the Hootsuite dashboard as a free member and you will be able to monitor way more social streams without having to pay for anything.Of course the premium Hootsuite is one of the Top social management tools in the world and is very affordable.
Additionally I do not trust someone unknown to write content for me.If you have a business running and you are in need of writers and content creators you will make a research online , you will ask friends and people on your personal network for references.How can I trust that group without any evidence , without any sample of their work?
If they had an active blog with posts I could evaluate their quality.But there is nothing there….I will get back to that later
Beyond the social media management tool the 25 dollar legacy offers SEO services including
- Keyword research
- Page tests
- Unique articles
- Competition analysis
- Google analytics and webmasters tools setup
- Articles submission to niche related blogs
- Backlink analysis
- Local sitations
- Check links for relevancy and power
- On page SEO
- Social signals
- Keyword tracker
Moreover they mention that you will have to wait for at least 6 months before you see any returning results , and that is absolutely true.
So , 25 dollar legacy is not a service I would feel proud of promoting.And there is no website builder.That means you can only drive traffic to this Network and your squeeze pages.I am not predicting much success without a website that you own.If you are serious in doing business online you have to run a website.
Step #2 – LSN tools suite (Lead System Network)
This is a network like the one I am reviewing right now , the Network Power Group.You can promote it to others and make affiliate commissions and they provide tools like autoresponders , a website builder and more.
It needs further investigation.
Step #3 – 4 corners alliance
Another very similar network that I have to review separately but as I already know from other online reviews it is not a program I would feel very proud of.
Step #4 – Advertising links
This seems like spam marketing where they will teach you how to overload your social networks and other online communities with your affiliate links.
Step #5 – Advertising rotation system
That systems can be used in traffic exchanges platforms and I have never used them.
But I am not proceeding with the first Step – the 25 dollar legacy , therefore I can not complete any of the steps to become an active member inside the Network Power Group.
It could cost me a fortune per month to have all these memberships active and promote like madman the Network.Instead I am working on my own and promote products and programs I am proud of.
Let’s compare that network with the tolls I am using.
The Tools I am using inside the WA University – Pre Conclusion
For $29 / month (yearly plan) I have access to
The entire WA online marketing training – endless resources with step by step guides , videos , classrooms and a live 24 hours forum where you can interact with alike entrepreneurs that share knowledge and help other members.
WA teaches you SEO , keyword & niche & market research , everything WordPress , website development & programming , social media management , content creation , local marketing , email marketing , pay per click marketing among others.
There is a beautiful website builder called SiteRubix in which you can build a WordPress website in under 30 seconds.I can build up to 25 websites on a domain I own and another 25 with the free SiteRubix extension.
There is a keyword research tool that analyses the major search engines in seconds and give you insights about the competition , article & PPC power and more…
Moreover there is a link tracking platform to check your links and the weekly live video training webinars with Jay Neill , a high experience marketer and personal mentor of mine.On these webinars Jay is helping new members to make a full usage of their websites and he is working on industry updates so that no one stays behind the competition.
All of that for $29 / month.I would be crazy to sign up for the 25 dollar legacy , where the only thing you can do is to promote this program to others and nothing else.
But having a website on your own is they way that you can build a brand for yourself.You can promote any program in the world , you can sell your own digital products and sell marketing services to other companies and brands.
The Network Power Group is not a scam.It’s just a membership site for those that are interested in promoting the Network along with the 25 dollar legacy tools & services , the LSN tools suite and the other networks.
Obviously , Richard Trotter and his partners are interested in making affiliate commissions out of you and those that you will refer to that Network.This might be a solution for some bloggers and marketers that are experienced in online businesses but I am not recommending it.If you are a newcomer stay away by all means.
Do not waste more time , build a brand on your own.
That’s it , I hope you enjoyed another review , here on Web Market Support.I am waiting for your comments and thoughts.Till next time , your online partner.
