I was really torn on my decision as to whether or not the Level One Network is a scam, due to the fact that I think it’s bigger brother (Empower Network) is.
Just like everyone else, I have my OPINION about this business so I would like to put my two cents in about the Level One Network and join in on the fun.
There are probably so many positive reviews about this which of course would have someone on the other end trying to get you to join. This is a completely unbiased review, from someone who is not affiliated with LON, nor do I give two licks about what anyone thinks about my take on this.
What is the Level One Network and What is All the Fuss About?
This is nothing more than a multilevel marketing/network marketing business, which requires you to build your little pyramids to make money.
They have a different approach to the compensation plan, but in the end, it is just another MLM business. Or is it?
It’s kind of funny because I think that the Empower Network is nothing but a scam, but I actually have a different view on this one. I do have my reasons and you will see that further into this review.
I’m pretty sure you already know that there is no tangible product that comes with this business. So unlike your typical lotions and positions gigs that you’re used to seeing, you won’t be getting some type of generic products to go with your monthly membership.
However, you will be getting a blogging platform, which you can use to market whatever you want, and ultimately promote the Level One Network. Here is what they say, you can expect with this so called “blogging platform”.
This is also where and why things get very similar to the Empower Network. You get this blogging platform that is not what they used to be since Google caught on to these websites that host nothing but a bunch of people’s articles to boost their rankings.
How Much it’s Going to Cost You
Initially, it is going to be fairly reasonable and it is also something that I actually liked about this business.
It is going to cost you $19.95 just for admin fees alone, which I think is a decent price to pay the owners for allowing you to earn more money with their system.
Then it is going to cost you another $29 per month, which is what will be going to your up-line. Don’t you think that’s a fair deal?
- Admin Fee – $19.95/month
- Licensing Fee – $29/month
If you’re not that familiar with what an up-sell is, it is nothing more than other promotions that someone uses to make extra money, after your initial purchase of a product.
Just like the Empower Network, these ones are not going to be cheap. Once again, these will not be tangible.
However, these are not going to cost you thousands upon thousands of dollars like the Empower Network. This is the biggest reason as to why I see Level One Network differently than the Empower Network.
- SEO Pro Connect – $99
- PDF Pro Express – $199
- Master Training Series – $599
I’m not going to get into these products that much, because they are nothing more than another way to make money with LON.
However (I say this a lot huh?), when you do purchase these products, you are pretty much paying for a “licensing fee”, so that you can promote the same exact stuff that you just purchased.
The beauty about this, is that you get 100% commissions from every sale, which is not too bad of a deal if you ask me.
The Not So Traditional Compensation Plan
Yup, they have this too, just like every other multilevel marketing business that you’ve seen before. Unlike your usual comp plans, this one follows a similar format of the Empower Network.
They have this deal where you skip your 2nd, 5th, and every 5th sale after that, which will all be passed up to your up-line. Is that fair? I think so, being that the same thing will happen when your downlines get their 2nd, 5th, and so forth.
In the beginning, it sounds like a sweet deal, but in the end, you’re going to lose if you’re not getting people to join your little network. You just can’t afford to be “passing people up” if you want to make it in this industry.
Pros & Cons
I am not a big fan of network marketing, but I actually like this one (a little). Here are a couple of key features, as well as the not so good points of “LON”.
- Fair pricing (initially)
- Can make you money
- No need to purchase products to resell
- Is not easy to promote
- Kind of pricey
- Is recruiting
- Blogging platform is not as easy to rank as it used to
- Is ran like any other pyramid scheme

Is Level One Network a Scam?
I really don’t care too much for MLM or network marketing, but this one actually got on my good side. I don’t think this is a scam, and if you’re great at recruiting people, then this might work for you.
The pricing for their up-sells are fairly reasonable and I think is a great price range for the value as well as the opportunity to make more money.
Would I recommend it? Probably not. We are all different, and if you think you can actually sell what LON has to offer, then I would definitely say go for it. Click here to see what program I recommend.
In the end, this type of stuff is not the easiest thing to do and you don’t really have people rolling around with $500 to blow on anything.
Just be careful when you decide to do any type of network marketing, because there is a very (and I mean very) high failure rate. I hope you enjoyed this review of LON and hopefully you can make a better decision from this review.
