The Empower Network just put in many modifications
with the release of ENV2, the brand new incarnation of
the EN blogging platform. This is most certainly no huge
secret to those within this distinct niche, as lots of EN
members have been jabbering about it for the previous
Until now though, you may have had your email inbox
deluged with mail from Empower Network affiliates
informing you that something new was on it's way, there
hasn't been much information about exactly what those
changes might be.
In this article we'll take up the more significant
modifications to this system.
The Empower Network blogging system has been
thoroughly modified and is really different from what it
The main concentration on the new system has been on
ease. And uncomplicated it is.
The last version was actually just a replicating
installation of Wordpress, along with the same Admin
controls and settings. Even though creating a site by
using Wordpress is surely more simple than building it
from the ground up employing raw coding, this was still
far to complex for the average person to just jump in
and begin using. I found the old version to be quite basic
for Me but I've been building sites for several years. I've
seen many people join and wind up quitting merely by
reason of they were not able to follow the technical
elements of the program.
It seems somebody over at Empower Network admin
noticed the same because the new ENV2 program has
definitely streamlined everything.
The admin area has been broken into four main
purposes: Text post, video post, audio post and image
post. Each option is chosen by a very large image icon
displayed at the top of the page. All the blogger need do
is select the kind he wishes to post, fill in a couple fields
and they're done.
Not sure how such could get any easier and still make it
possible for one to make a new post. One doesn't
actually even need to be able to read.
And while the text posting does still support basic text
style via a standard highlight-and-click process, they
have eliminated the "code" version so as to further
simplify the process. Certain more experienced bloggers
who want to do more complicated tasks with their blog
posts may find this irritating but the clear majority of
customers, I suspect, will prefer the simplification.
One more aspect of the new version is the Empower
Network app for your phone. The entire blogging
network has been designed to enable people to easily
blog making use of just their smart-phone. With regard
to individuals who elect to purchase the Empower
Network video hosting plan, they can easily upload and
post a video recorded on their iphone with merely a few
clicks of your phone pad. The plan was to free up the
small business owner so that he could work from
anywhere that he could use his smartphone.
The video hosting service and the blog are intended to
perform side by side to make this quick and easy. In the
interest of more sophisticated bloggers who are already
employing their own video hosting service, in contrast to
free sites for example, YouTube or Vimeo, this wouldn't
be any sort of surprise. For those newbies that were
planning on just using YouTube, this can still be done
certainly, but they merely need to embed the YT video
link into a new post. While this is still many times faster
and simpler than it would be when using a traditional
Wordpress blog, it doesn't have quite the same Wow
Factor as being able to record, then click a button on
your phone to have a new video blog
Personalization will be compromised for the benefit of
ease. Whether or not this is an issue is a concern for
each individual to find out for themselves.
One of the factors that has been made a lot easier is the
inclusion of photos to your blog posts. One doesn't need
to align or size their images ever again. Just a couple
clicks and the system does the remainder, sizes it
properly. Text wrapping is not an issue.
One more distinct change: When customers log in to
ENV2 they will now observe their social activity feed
which contains the recent blog posts posted by other EN
And when someone makes a new post it is the choice of
that author to pick whether they wish the new post
displayed in the activity feed and available for view to all
their customers, affiliate down-line, or to just a select
group of customers who have purchased a particular
product. One can now decide on who gets the
notification so that if you have content that you want
reserved for only your "Masters" members, for example,
you may do that.
Furthermore Empower Network has included the
capacity to do a one-click swipe of any of the blog posts
you see on your Activity Feed. This is simple content
curation and delivers lots of possibilities for social
engagement and marketing by itself.
Generally the changes for ENV2 are favorable and
definitely in the direction of simplicity for the benefit of
the typical person.
