Empower Network Vs. Infinity Downline – Which Is Better?

Empower Network Vs. Infinity Downline, 2 somewhat similar networking affiliate programs, but which is better for you personally?  As one of the top Infinity Downline Sponsors worldwide, I wanted to write this post with one goal in mind:  To give you the absolute best information possible so you can make the best business decision for yourself.  We will take a look at both programs and then discuss the pros & cons of each program.

When looking at an online business, or any business, it’s very important to do your due diligence and research every part of the program so you are not caught ‘off guard’ after the signup process is complete.  I am hoping to give you the most in depth review of these 2 programs so you know what to completely expect before ‘jumping in’.

Empower Network Vs. Infinity Downline – What Is Empower Network?

Empower-Network vs Infinity Downline

Empower Network is a company started by 2 Internet Marketing powerhouses, David Wood & David Sharpe.  These are 2 of the most knowledgeable leaders in the network/internet marketing industry.

David Wood & David Sharpe Empower Network

The Empower Network company was started on October 31st 2011 and is headquartered in St. Petersburg, Florida.  Empower Network, at it’s core, is a blogging platform for its members, meaning that any member can immediately use their system to blog and create posts and get into the world of online marketing very quickly and without much of the headache associated with creating capture pages, learning SEO, optimizing posts, etc.

There are several different membership levels to Empower Network, as well as several products, let’s look at those more in depth:

1.  Basic Membership – This is the basic $25 monthly membership and is the lowest level to come into the program.  The basic includes the full blogging platform for the member to start promoting and learning how to build a business online.  There is also a $19.95 e-wallet access fee monthly as well, this is an additional expense for all membership levels.

2.  Inner Circle Membership – This is a $100 monthly membership upgrade that allows access to the ‘Inner Circle’ program.  This allows access to further in-depth training not accessible in the basic membership.  The inner circle involves audio trainings from top level internet and network marketing leaders to further benefit the member.

In addition to the 2 subscription models above, Empower Network also offers one-time product sales on the following courses, affiliates can only sell these products if they have purchased the products themselves:

1.  Cost Rica Intensive Training – ($500) One Time Fee – Intensive Training Series From David Wood at his retreat in Cost Rica.  Includes high definition videos of more in-depth training related to Internet Marketing strategies and techniques.

2.  The 15k Formula – ($995) One Time Fee – Even more In-Depth Training for individuals who want to follow a system for a possible 15k monthly income.  More in depth video trainings related to technical aspects of marketing your business online.

3.  The Masters Course – ($3500) One Time Fee – As expected, even more In-Depth Training for members who desire more intensive training that includes a 39 module course that proclaims to be the last course anyone would ever need to learn how to be successful online and make over $10,000 monthly.

That pretty much sums up the entire Empower Network system and product line as of the time of this post.

Empower Network Vs. Infinity Downline – What Is Infinity Downline?

Infinity Downline was started in March of 2009 by Network Marketing Leader Peter Wolfing.  The company is part of Peter Wolfing’s Multiplex Systems based out of New York.  Infinity Downline has been around for awhile and will always be.  Peter Wolfing is considered an absolute network marketing giant, having created many successful online network marketing model companies.

Infinity Downline revolves around a very simple $25 membership fee.   There is only 1 membership level to the program and no upsells or higher membership levels.  There is a completely optional Infinity 100 program which centers around stock marketing informational products that is $100 monthly, but is completely optional and a seperate program altogether.

Infinity Downline has several ‘highpoints’ to the system as well, which are:


100 % commissions

Low Cost $25 Membership Fee

NO admin fee whatsoever of any kind

Perpetual Downline created by the Power of 4 System

Instant Payments – No Waiting Whatsoever

Break even with just 1 Referral into the Program


The product line within Infinity Downline is pretty exhaustive, as the products deal with not only Internet/Network Marketing, but also very useful and beneficial trainings on software such as Microsoft Office, Microsoft Excel, Adobe Photoshop, SEO, Pay Per Click, etc.  Here is a sample of the product library:

Infinity Downline Affiliate Marketing Training

Infinity Downline Product Creation Training Series

Infinity Downline WordPress Site Training Series

Infinity Downline Forum Training Site Series

Infinity Downline Squidoo Training Series

There are literally hundreds and hundreds of hours worth of video & audio training within the product line that would take a solid year to go through.  Huge amount of value for the $25 membership, you can get a more ideal representation of the entire product line in this video:

Empower Network Vs. Infinity Downline – Which Has Better Compensation?

Infinity Downline money

Both Empower Network & Infinity Downline have amazing compensation plans offering 100% commissions on referrals into both programs.  We will look at each program’s compensation more in depth:

Empower Network Compensation Plan:

Empower Network has 100% commissions following a powerline (this is another word for payline) that works directly as follows, from my understanding of the system (EN affiliates please correct me if I get this wrong and I will be glad to correct):

The payment plan follows a 2nd, 4th, 6th, and then every 5th sale being passed up to the sponsor.  This can be illustrated by this picture:

Empower Network Comp Plan

This compensation plan not only revolves around the basic $25 blogging platform but all of the product line, and each affiliate has to have purchased the higher membership levels to be able to be compensated by those product sales within this compensation plan.  If not, the sales would then go up the payline to a member who has purchased that product, if the product sale lands on a passup number as described in the picture.


Infinity Downline Compensation Plan:

Infinity Downline follows a Reverse 2 Up Compensation Plan, and what this means simple is that every 2nd & 4th referral is passed up to the sponsor.  This 2nd & 4th pass up then consequently creates a perpetual downline and payline for the referring sponsor.  The compensation centers around the simple and powerful concept of the Power of 4.  The Power of 4 centers around referring 4 individuals with the $25 membership fee, and those 4 just duplicating that same process and the payments continually compound for the originating member.

The Reverse 2 Up Compensation Plan can best be described by this picture:

What Payment Processors are used by Empower Network & Infinity Downline? 

I get asked this question alot for Infinity Downline and wanted to include what processors are available for each opportunity:

Empower Network requires members to use Linkpoint/FirstData, Authorize.net, PayPal, Alertpay, or the Empower Network eWallet.

Infinity Downline requires members to use these same processors as well, with the exception of an eWallet system.  Paypal & Payza by far the most common.

Empower Network Vs. Infinity Downline – So Which One Is Better?

In my personal opinion, you can’t go wrong with either one of these great programs.  I am doing extremely well with Infinity Downline.  Most of my really close marketing friends and partners are doing extremely well with Empower Network.  Both of these programs offering 100% commissions is a VERY powerful incentive to any would be internet marketer.  I can’t say enough about each program’s founders, these are amazing people who put an amazing amount of work to build a business that ANYONE can do if they have the work ethic to make it happen.  The founders of these companies should be congratulated on an immense scale.

My Personal Recommendation On What Program To Get Involved With

I would ask myself this question, “Which one of these programs is better suited for me?“  Don’t make a business decision on what everyone else is doing or what is ‘popular’.  If you want to get involved with Empower Network or Infinity Downline it has to be for the right reasons for YOU. 

I will say that when you really enjoy the program yourself, it is far easier to promote the program in a variety of ways.  For me personally Infinity Downline is a program that is so EASY, you can just basically get into conversations about it with other people and start making money.  The product line is very universal and benefits anyone, from 18 years of age to 95 (and older).  Infinity Downline is crazy simple to promote and it does not complicate itself.  I like simple.  Simple duplicates easier and faster and will explode your income.

In selecting any program, it is always very important to do your due diligence and research a program in depth to make a really good decision.  Even with the very low start up cost of $25, it is very important to learn all about each program as much as possible.

Well that’s it, I bet you thought I was going to be completely biased because I’m in Infinity Downline and not Empower Network?

Nope, that’s not me.  I’m one of the few people online that is going to be honest and give you best information so it will help you as much as possible.  Speaking of help, why don’t you check out my HUGE Training Site for Infinity Downline, if the program interests you whatsoever ;)

To YOUR Success,
