Join Our Affiliate Program!

Channel Partners, which is our fancy way of saying Empowery Affiliates, have the opportunity to earn up to 40% of the Empowery Onboarding Fee PLUS 20% of the ongoing monthly membership fees for the member's first year.

Channel Partners must follow all FTC Endorsement Guidelines at all times. Our partners must always tell the truth and your values must match our values. We're here to help entrepreneurs succeed in a long term sustainable way.

Our partners are the most important part of our growth strategy to help more entrepreneurs around the world. 

Are you ready to JOIN THE MOVEMENT?

 

Example Affiliate Commissions


We believe that our Affiliates (our lawyers call them Channel Partners) should have a clear understanding of the earning potential.

 

We also believe in the transparency of our program. The purpose of the Channel Partner program is to help drive awareness and the commission (aka marketing payment) is in lieu of the normal marketing costs that we would invest with other more traditional media channels.

 

We are always in favor of investing our marketing resources in the most effective channels and we believe that is YOU! This page is intended to be a summary and overview of the program. There will be other products/services with earning potential that are introduced from time to time and all Channel Partners/Affiliates will be made aware of these opportunities.

 

NOTE: PRIOR TO APPROVAL ALL CHANNEL PARTNERS ARE REQUIRED TO ELECTRONICALLY SIGN OUR LEGAL AGREEMENT WHICH INCLUDES ALL THE LAWYER TALK AND DETAILS.


**NO PAYOUTS ARE MADE WITHOUT THAT LEGAL AGREEMENT.

  • Silver Member Onboarding/Application Fee

    Silver Membership

    SILVER members are choosing to become shareholders in the cooperative. These are the most valuable members because they are actual owners of the cooperative and they will enjoy voting rights on big picture topics within the cooperative as well.

    SILVER members see the value of the cooperative to help their business on a financial basis, operational basis, community basis, and a big picture lobby and influence basis.

  • Owner Member Monthly Dues

    Monthly Membership Fees

    30 Days after activation and each month thereafter SILVER members are required to pay a $250.00 monthly fee for their membership dues. 

    The intent is that this will help SILVER members focus on earning more CASHBACK which can not only offset the $250 per month, but actually deliver LOTS more back to the entrepreneur based on their individual purchases from the Empowery aligned vendors.

  • Empowery Seattle Summit Conference

    Ticket Sales

    Empowery, from time to time, will produce and hold conferences and other events to support members.

     

    For example affiliates would be able to earn a commission on tickets purchased by referrals. (Even non-members can buy tickets.)

    There are different admission levels from General Admission at $1497.00 to VIP at $3997.00.

    These events are designed an exclusive venue with less than 100 highly focused eCommerce professionals. That said, this represents another great opportunity for you as an affiliate.

The Earning Potential is Exciting.

Run the numbers for yourself, but here's some quick math for you:


For each Silver Member you refer you have the potential to earn: (rates are subject to change at any time.)

  • 40%, onboarding/application of fee $1000.00 x 40% = $400.00

  • 0%, member owner share purchase. The stock is not eligible for any commissions.

  • 20%, monthly owner member dues. 11 Months x ($250.00x20%) = $550.00

4 What If Scenarios:

What is YOUR potential?

No earnings are guaranteed or should be expected by any Channel Partner without effort. This is not some get rich quick scheme, this is a marketing partnership to have YOU help US create awareness for the Empowery eCommerce Cooperative.

Like any affiliate program our idea is to have YOU share in the success of your marketing efforts, the members success, and the building of the brand. Any potential is the result of efforts from a successful marketing effort led by the parter.

The calculations below show the potential for SILVER members who stay in the cooperative for the entire year. There is no way to forecast the length of membership, but by design membership is intended to be enduring.

You should not anticipate any earning level without effort.

We want to be sure that you have access to the best and brightest even before you join to be sure the program is a good fit for you. Feel free to contact us so we can get started. Although we want to be welcoming a key part of our process is to understand your intended audience and what marketing strategies and tactics you expect to use to reach them. 
 

Empowery members and vendors do get an insider advantage that allow them to participate much easier since they have already been vetted. 

This page allows you to obtain an affiliate link, but there is a manual approval process. Please be patient since the process can take time and often requires an in person interview.

 

We are focused on QUALITY not QUANTITY.

3. Channel Partners will receive 20% of NET (after any coupons, refunds, etc..) monthly owner-member fees for the first 12 months of the member activation date. (Note members get their first month included as part of their onboarding fee so there are only 11 subsequent eligible payments.)

7. We are the sole determiner of any dispute as to if any referral of a Participant is a Qualified Referral or Qualified Participant. We have the right to resolve all referral disputes between Channel Partners. To resolve the dispute, we may amend this Agreement to share Marketing Fees among such Channel Partners.  We have the right to adjust, reduce or change the fee structure at any time if necessary to comply with all applicable laws rules and regulations.  We also have the right to reduce or split the total Marketing Fees among you or another Channel Partner if more than one Channel Partner is in part the procuring cause of the referral.  You are not to communicate or share the amount or manner of computation of your Marketing Fee with any other Channel Partner or third party.

I believe Empowery can be a game changer for you. 

 

I have witnessed the power of cooperatives and how they have supercharged so many businesses for growth and profitability.  

 

Why do cooperatives get me excited?

 

It's because they provide the best of both worlds: STRENGTH & POWER of a larger organization with the entrepreneurial mindset of a smaller organization. #INDEPENDENTTOGETHER
