Mike: Okay. It’s interesting that you say “we”, which is — it’s not, it’s kinda like you’re an owner in it kind of. Is it the way it’s kinda structured, like you’re an investor in the Empower Network? Is that how that works?
Chris: Well, I say “we” because I consider us a team. And, not just the people in my team but even cross line. I’ve helped tons of people in Empower Network there are — there’s no direct relationship to me or my business. Ah, but we’re all very helpful. All the leaders that I worked with, some do multiple 6 figures a month. Some of them, I’m not even their downlines but they’re willing to kinda reach out and give you a hand up. So, I’m willing to go out there and help others crossline or downline. Um, And that’s the great thing about Empower Network. We consider ourselves a team and we just wanna change the industry. Um, because I’ve seen on other companies where you have people crossline and on different teams. Instead of helping each other, they’re competing with each other. And I just feel that’s — that’s bad for the industry as a whole, not just the company. So, I consider us a team. And by being kind of an owner, I guess technically, you’re kind of an owner of the company in a way because any product you own, you’re getting a 100% commission on it. So, in that sense, it’s like a franchise that once you buy it to the franchise, you own that franchise and you own that income. Similar concept in the Empower Network, I think.
Mike: So, if I go to chrisksite.com and to sign up for the Empower Network through your affiliate link, I would initially start by paying $25 a month and you would, initially, you would get that $25-commission, correct?
Chris: It would either come to me or be passed up, depending on where you came in on the sign up. So, the way that the pass-ups work is um, your 2nd, 4th and 6th person that you sponsor and then every 5 after that gets passed up. So, initially people that are new to the industry say, “Well, I’m making all these pass-ups, how is that fair?”. Well, the fairness comes in that we’re gonna basically teach you and train you to be able to market online the way we do and then you’re gonna be the one getting those pass- ups. So, I kinda — I came from that mindset of the lag in the beginning of my business where I would think, “Well, how come I’m only getting 10% commissions and why am I making these pass-ups?”, to the mindset of abundance now, I realized that there’s so much out there for all of us that it’s gonna come back to you ten-fold. So, that’s kinda how the structure works. If you went to my site, signed up through my link, among the other bonuses that I offer to my team and sign-ups there, you’re basically gonna get ongoing training from not just myself but a couple of 6-figure millionaires we have on our team. And we do trainings weekly.
Mike: Do the training through webinars or through videos? How does that work?
Chris: Yeah, mostly webinars and videos. And then, we’ll do some um, some live calls actually once in a while. We’ll do small group calls, usually with — once somebody shows a proficiency and kinda able to follow what we’re saying and actually take action on it and we see are getting some results, we’ll do some smaller group calls that are more private because there’s probably a lot of people online, they don’t take it seriously. It’s only $25 to get started. It’s a pro, it’s a con coz to most people are like, well $25 a month to get started. It’s not that big of an investment. I’ll try it out for 30, 60, 90 days. And if it doesn’t work, I’ll just move on. But if you come with that mindset, it’s not gonna work coz you’re not taking it seriously and if you’re not gonna put in the effort in it, it’s just not gonna work for you. So, once we see someone serious and they’re putting effort into getting the results, we’ll do a smaller group call of 5 or 6 people in the call just to help them get into that next level.
Mike: If I signed up under you, would you be able to have direct contact with me afterwards? Would you see that I was your — I guess I would be in your downs, your downline? Is that how that that would work?
Chris: Yeah, for sure. I would see. Even if you’re a pass–up, I still see you coming in through because I’m technically your sponsor regardless of where you get passed up to. Um, and generally, most of — most of the people that are coming in my team, they will get a call either from, from me or my assistant. Um, just to welcome to the team, make sure they get log in coz I have a whole training camp set up for them, make sure they get that information and they get to starting off from the right footing.
Mike: Can everyone in your team also see each other in the system?
Chris: No, that’s one thing. You can’t see each other. You can only see the people that you bring in because the information that’s there ah, it’s usually name, email, phone number. So, the phone number is a little personal. So generally, unless you’re the person sponsoring them, I guess you don’t wanna look and see everybody’s phone numbers.
Mike: How many people do you have in your downline right now?
Chris: I’m about at 40 right now. Um and honestly, that really all started back in June. I really started taking it seriously coz in June I think I only have 2 or 3 people. Um, and — but it was constantly, from those 2 or 3 people started really performing. And I wasn’t really doing much at the time, you know. I was only providing a lot of training. I was taking — like I said, it was a little side affiliate form to me. And those 2 or 3 people were performing without really much training from me or mentoring. So I decided, well there’s
