My review of the Viral Blogging Academy, an Empower Network product.
I purchased the product last week and have watched the four lessons over a period of three days.
Not saying that you should just what I did.
I took some notes as I watched and learned.
After each lesson, I wrote a review on it.
This product is the second product in Empower’s System created to utilise their flagship product the Viral Blogging System.
The Viral Blogging Academy actually consists of 4 webinars but, it also comes with bonus material.
The cost? $297.
Is the product worth the cost?
Read on and see for yourself…
Bonus Product 1 – Storytelling Mastery
Although this product is one of the bonuses, I thought that it deserved a writeup.
This module is just over four hours in length and features David Sharpe.
Filmed at a live weekend event for “ALL IN” members.
Part 1 is filmed Friday night.
David breaks down in exact detail the way you tell people your story.
Personally, I feel that this should be sold as a standalone product.
I learned a great deal from this product and I recommend watching it over and over again and taking notes.
So far, at time of publishing this review, I have watched three times.
Mastering the art of communication is taught.
What is sensory acuity?
Part 1 concludes at 2hrs 21mins with a toilet break(you will laugh at this point!).
The participants were given some homework which had to be completed to be able to enter the room for part 2.
Part 2 commences Saturday morning just at the end of a speech by Dave Wood.
What image do you want your customers to think of you?
David Sharpe tells us his story and what made him turn his life around.
How to elicit specific emotions.
In part 2, Dave breaks down exactly what he did in part 1 for our learning pleasure.
There is a 5 minute written exercise followed by another exercise this time for 3 minutes, sharing your story.
David will make you step out of your comfort zone, this is what you will have to do if you really want to change your life.
What is an open loop?
The answer is in the last 20 minutes of this lesson.
David asks everyone to go back and watch the first part again to see where he did what he just taught them.
Obviously, I haven’t written down everything that is taught in this lesson.
If I did then, you wouldn’t need to buy it would you!

Webinar2 – The Dynamics
In this the second webinar of the Viral Blogging Academy, Dave Wood features. It runs for 1hr and a half.
Dave starts by telling us about a recent injury of his.
He does a recap of the first webinar.
Dave shares some of the results from a survey that he sent out to his list.
Based on the results of the survey, strategies are created or refined to talk directly to the list’s desires.
Goals are set and explained.
As this product was created in 2013, you will be able to see the results.
This lesson could easily be sold as a separate product for more than the asking price.

3. Bloggin’ Blueprint
This product has taught me so many things, I can immediately see areas in my business that I have to work on.
Each of the four webinars that make up the product can easily be sold as independent products for much more than the overall cost.
And I haven’t even started on the bonuses yet.
All the people featured in the bonus products are million dollar income earners with The Empower Network.
The bonuses complement the product and all the products combined is all the training you will need to build your business with your blog.
The Viral Blogging Academy at $297 is an absolute steal.
