Empoura is here to support you in your new business journey.

We’ve compiled an in-depth library of helpful guidance documents that cover many questions that may arise.

  • What kind of company can I establish?
    We set up LLC’s for Empoura clients. If your intent is to provide coaching or education, then an LLC is likely a good fit for your company. If you want to deliver hands on care, you should contact your state nursing board to see if they allow for an LLC, or if they require a PLLC to start your business. Of course, we are not CPA’s, so you may want to consult with your accountant if you have questions related to your specific situation.

    Sheltering your personal assets from lawsuits that might arise from one’s business interests avoid having to pay both personal and corporate taxes on income (known as “double taxation”) in that a single member LLC income can flow down to their personal taxes avoiding corporate taxes. There is a form you must file along with your LLC, but you only have to file a personal return.
  • What are the advantages of a PLLC?
    Has the same advantages as an llc, the main difference is between a PLLC and LLC, is that the PLLC has some restrictions around who can be a member and the limitation of liability of the members themselves.

  • Email marketing tips?
    Email new contacts within 24 hours. It's important to take advantage of the window of opportunity when your company or brand is at the top of your prospects' minds. You can really get a pulse of what future engagement will look like by what people do when you email then within 24 hours of their subscribing to your newsletter, signing up for an offer, and so on. Plus, it's a great opportunity for branding and setting expectations. Keep your emails concise. Everyone's busy and their inbox is already full. Why add to the problem with a longwinded email? People generally like short, concise emails better than long ones because concise emails have an obvious focus. Include one call-to-action button per email. A lot of your email recipients will scan your email without reading all the copy? That's why you want to have a clear call-to-action (CTA) button that's easy to spot for even the quickest of email scanners. Without a CTA button, you won't be calling on your recipients to take any action that actually benefits them -- and the growth of your business. You'll want to place your CTA in a location where it's easily visible and where it makes sense for someone to click on it. For example, you might put a CTA to download a free e-book in an email that describes new strategies for using your product. Hyperlink your emails' images. Your ultimate goal in email marketing is to get people to click through to a web page. One way to increase the clickthrough rate without littering the copy with links is to hyperlink the images in your email to the webpage that corresponds with the content of the image. Include noticeable text links. One way to make your emails more clickable? Place one or more of your clickable elements -- whether it's a CTA button, a text link, or a clickable image -- near the beginning of your email. Add social sharing buttons. Increasing the number of people who see your link will increase the number of people who click on it. So, be sure to extend the life of your email by adding social sharing button Add an email forwarding option. Another way to extend the clicks on your email beyond its shelf life is to prompt your audience to forward the offer. The folks at Litmus found that the most forwarded emails were 13X more likely than the typical email to include “Share With Your Network” calls-to-action. By including forward-to-a-friend (or social sharing links, as we discussed above), you put it in recipients' minds to share.
