Welcome to the world's first democratic social economy...
...where you earn when your posts are “Liked”.

While empowr looks & feels familiar, it's actually quite different.

Therefore, you will want to read the below product descriptions and terms carefully, as empowr is an incredibly rich and complex economy that includes various novel and interconnected products, roles and ways for you to earn, paid subscriptions, a non-disclosure alpha user agreement, services and dynamic features, all designed to improve your life and, ultimately, make the world a better place.

Democracy means...

... you're in control of empowr

empowr is managed by its president, who’s elected by its users — called “citizens”. You could be empowr's next president!

Use your voice to influence empowr's products and policies.

Democracy works when you’re empowered.

... empowr's profits go to you

Our mission: To empower people by enabling opportunity, hope and influence.

Learn all the ways that empowr helps you earn, below.

Simply keep your earnings set to "ON" to experience all that empowr has to offer!

In true democracy, the power and the money belong to the many — not the few.

... earn by doing what you're already doing online

Say something. Every time someone reads it, you earn!

Post a photo. Each time it’s viewed, you earn!

Share a YouTube video. When it’s watched, you earn!

Notice a pattern? Democracy pays!

... even more opportunities to earn

Got something to sell? Set the price (or put it up for auction) and keep 90%.

Got a service to offer? empowr brings you customers and automatically bills them each month — depositing your 90% share into your balance.

Love helping others? Teachers are amongst the top earners within the empowr democracy.

Democracy means there are always new opportunities coming your way.

... free education

All empowr citizens are entitled to free personal guidance from community experts called "success coaches".

Choose from success coaches that speak your preferred language.

Got a question? Just ask! Success coaches want you to succeed. Oh, did we mention that this service is totally free?

A democracy only succeeds when its citizens learn how to succeed.

... upward mobility

In empowr, the fastest way to get ahead is with monthly power user subscriptions, priced from as low as $6. Power users get much more attention — which means significantly more views and earnings.

And guess what?

Your first month subscription, at the lowest power level, starts today for free and you'll pay for future months using your credit card or PayPal. Or choose to use your empowr profits to pay for subscriptions, which means if you get in the habit of posting daily it is possible to use only your profits to work your way up to the highest power level without spending a penny of your own money.

To help you keep moving up and up, we'll upgrade your power level when your empowr profits allow, immediately increasing your daily earnings potential. Be sure to visit your power user settings to understand the options available to you.

Upward mobility is what true democracy is all about.

... you can spend & cash out

Shop to your heart’s content, choosing from thousands of products and services from all over the world.

Along with spending some profits in the empowr marketplace, there are also opportunities to cash out some profits.

The moment you start earning, an innovative maturation process begins, opening up different doors and possibilities for how you can spend and cash out.

Earnings from any month become eligible for cash out 90 days after the month. You’ll need to subtract out anything owed to the platform, which will include advertising expenditures generated at any time, including those generated on your behalf via managed ad campaigns (see "success made simple" section below).That means your cash out capability takes longer than 90 days because your earnings (that have matured for more than 90-days) must exceed all your ad costs including those most recently incurred, and your most matured earnings always get spent first.

You can, however, cash out some of your profits faster — in as quickly as 30 days or less — with accelerated matured cash outs. More on that in a moment.

Why maturity?

The maturity process was designed to keep earnings in the community. In fact, that's why your most matured funds are always utilized first. When more citizen earnings are kept in the community, those earnings remain available for purchasing your products, services and premium content, leading to more earning opportunities for you and a more robust economy for all empowr citizens. A robust economy is a prerequisite to accomplishing our mission of empowering people by enabling opportunity, hope and influence.

To be extra clear: The normal 90-day maturation process is responsible for little of the cash outs that happen on a monthly basis, due to the "most matured funds first" spending order mentioned above. Instead, virtually all cash outs are achieved more quickly than 90 days, through a different process, called AMCOs (accelerated matured cash outs) where empowr, at its sole discretion, accelerates the maturity of some funds in order to reward behaviors that drive the results (such as successfully selling or sharing products and services, coaching and teaching, moderating and auditing, and transporting) needed for the empowr economy to grow.

This means that the cash outs provided to citizens are actually achieved by those citizens in less than 90 days and often in as little as 30 days or less from when they took the actions they're being rewarded for.

If this approach doesn't seem optimal or doesn't work with your personal needs for cash outs, we respect that and strongly suggest that you not join this experiment at this time.

empowr is working to achieve its long-term goal for 97% of revenues that come into the empowr economy, from any source, to go out to its citizens. The other 3% will be utilized towards the costs of running the company. To be clear, this is a long-term goal that the empowr community has not yet achieved. Everyone is working diligently to grow the empowr economy in order to accomplish it.

Freedom means the power to earn. Earning means the power to spend and save.

... you get $1,000 to get started

Use the $1,000 in ad credits to jumpstart your earnings without paying out of pocket! Each month, you'll pay an ad platform fee of only 2.9% (approx.) on any ad credits used.

But wait, it gets even better:

You can get 50% of that tiny fee back when you pay it on time. By doing so, you'll also earn double revenues from your photos, videos, status updates, and blog posts!

Or, don't even pay the ad platform fee!

That's fine too, we're happy you're here. You can still use your ad credits without spending a penny of your own money to build your earnings, expand your network, and have fun. All we ask is that you settle your account's utilized ad credits and fees before spending or cashing out your profits.

How do you like democracy so far :) ?

... success made simple

You can even use the ad credits extended to you to profit from other people's work. Simply fund their ads and share in the profits - they'll love you for it! There are millions of ads to choose from.

empowr will find & fund ads using your ad credits — with managed ad campaigns — so you can relax.

The high level of earnings you can achieve from posting is enabled by your built-in use of advertising via your managed ad campaign. Your ad credit utilization via managed ad campaigns is, well, as the name says, managed by empowr's team of experts with a mandate to balance the empowr economy.

It’s so simple!

Each day, see how many ad credits were utilized the day before and how much you earned as a result. Control your daily ad credit utilization (50% to 100%) or even turn your earnings off completely.

It's that easy and you're in control! Now that's freedom.

... collaborative experimentation

It's no secret: Democracies can lead to robust economies that raise the standard of living. This is accomplished by creating incentives via constant experimentation, creative destruction and innovation.

As an example, the currency of empowr is ad credits that can be purchased, and cashed out, with variable exchange rates set independently for both by a team of experts. Their mandate is to ensure the stability of the empowr platform, and they have the authority to change either exchange rate at any time. Anywhere within the empowr products or communications, when the "$" symbol is followed by a number, you're seeing the value of ad credits (in U.S. dollars) at the applicable exchange rate. You acknowledge that any time the terms "earnings" or "revenues" are mentioned within empowr, they're meant to reference top line revenues, as opposed to profits, based on ad credits at their applicable exchange rates. This approach gives the empowr community the opportunity to rapidly adjust and increase the experiment's likelihood of success.

If you made it through that last paragraph, you will agree that empowr is an exceptionally complex platform that’s still in its infancy despite the many years invested into it by engineers, economists, cognitive scientists and others.

As you may know, until recently, empowr was in “closed alpha” — no new registrations were allowed for years — so we could experiment, fail and hopefully succeed without upsetting many citizens. Many people asked us to move to “open alpha” so they (you) could sign up and join the experiment in progress. But we must ask you to only join if you’re really up to the challenge.

If you are up to the challenge, you acknowledge that, in our alpha testing phase, we need to try and fail on things until we get them right — without making those failures public. Accordingly, during our alpha phase, you agree to not post publicly about your experience on empowr, and not make any disparaging statements or representations, either directly or indirectly, whether orally or in writing, by word or gesture, to any person whatsoever. If you are found to have posted publicly and/or have violated this agreement in any way, you will be asked to rectify the violation to the reasonable satisfaction of empowr, which includes taking any public posts down if asked. You are hereby agreeing to a stipulated judgment that we will present to the courts, if needed, to take such posts down — and you agree to pay any legal and other costs that may arise from that process. This agreement shall be governed, construed and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of California, without giving effect to principles of conflicts of law. You are consenting to the exclusive jurisdiction of the State of California and to venue in San Diego County, California.

By participating in the “open alpha” version of empowr you could lose money, friends and maybe even your first born child. Just kidding about your first born — but you will gain the satisfaction of knowing that you are one of the first to contribute to a grand experiment that is attempting to build a better future for people everywhere.

Please, exercise free will and don’t join this experiment if you don’t have the time, money or patience to spare. This experiment will be messy, and it just might take a lot of all those things (time, money and patience) from all that choose to participate.

And did we mention that, while we’re still in the Alpha phase, we reserve the right to refuse service (that is, delete your account despite all the treasure, blood, sweat and tears that you might have invested into it) without specifying a reason that’s acceptable to you and without warning? If we haven’t scared you away before, perhaps that will.

Look, we just want the opportunity to operate an experiment with people that, like us, have their eyes wide open for the difficulty that comes with this type of experiment, especially at such an early stage.

OK, so you’ve been warned. Welcome to some difficult territory. Together, let’s work hard to make it much less difficult — perhaps even easy — for the others that will hopefully join us in the years to come, if and only if together we actually succeed at making this mission a reality.

By joining empowr, you're setting your empowr earnings to "ON" which activates all the roles and ways for you to earn, capabilities, paid subscriptions, services and dynamic features mentioned on this page. You can turn your earnings to "OFF" or even delete your account at any time and owe nothing to the platform. If you're uncomfortable with the uncertainty that comes with an experimental and complex platform, we strongly recommend that you not use the empowr platform at this time, and return for another look in a year or two. Otherwise, we look forward to serving you.
