So, I have recently received a lot of questions from you guys on how the commission system with Big Idea Mastermind works so I figured I would make you one big blog post to explain it all + touch by a couple of other common questions. If anything is still unclear after you read this post I ask you to please just comment below or email me at email@example.com.
1. How does Empower Network fit in with Big Idea Mastermind? Is Big Idea Mastermind just another team under Empower Network?
Big Idea Mastermind and Empower Network are two different companies with different owners. However, everyone who is a member of BIM is also a member of Empower Network.
Empower Network came first and was founded by Dave Sharpe and Dave Wood as a blogging platform in 2011. After a while they evolved with combining some of the best internet marketing trainings from some top 6 and 7 figure internet marketers. This includes hours upon hours upon hours of video trainings and webinars teaching each member how to sell, generate traffic, outsource, convert leads, search engine optimize etc. This is knowledge you can use with any business or product you want to sell. The value of the training you receive as a member expands far past the membership fees(starting at $25 per member).
Empower Network has many teams under it with various team names etc. Groups of members working together with some of their own tools, marketing materials and strategies. Big Idea Mastermind is different.
Big Idea Mastermind was launched in the spring of this year(2013) by traffic generation king Vick Strizheus. Before Mr. Strizheus founded Big Idea Mastermind he had great success with the High Traffic Academy. High Traffic Academy gives high quality, detailed and hands-on training on how to get traffic to your website. Even though Strizheus had great success with HTA he wanted to do more for his members so he teamed up with Empower Network to start his new company – Big Idea Mastermind.
Big Idea Mastermind is tied with Empower Network in the way that you get the exact same commissions for the same products as with Empower Network, but you get even MORE training, MORE tools and MORE coaching. Big Idea Mastermind has it’s own back office where you can find the marketing materials, the training videos etc that you only get with BIM.
2. Is Big Idea Mastermind more expensive than Empower Network?
No, you pay exactly the same as you would for your Empower Network membership. In addition to the extra training, tools and promotional aids you get with BIM, when you go up to a Diamond membership you get the High Traffic Academy course for free as well! So as a Big Idea Mastermind member at the highest level you gain valuable knowledge from all three networks for the price of one.
3. What do you mean with “extra marketing materials and promotional aids”?
Part of the idea behind BIM was to make internet marketing so simple that anyone could do it while using the best company out there as the vessel(that would be Empower Network with its 100 % commissions). Vick Strizheus, with all of his experience, wanted to help anyone with or without any experience in the field be successful. To make sure of this, in addition to all the training he provides to his members, you get a wide selection of landing pages/squeeze pages(where you send your traffic for signups), a wide selection of professional banner ads(you can put this on any blog or website you own or cooperate with), suggested text materials for email marketing, Facebook marketing, newspaper ads etc etc. Not only that, but as someone gets in through your landing page/squeeze page he has made an automated system where your leads receive follow up emails for several days later with more information on the network and valuable training tips.
All you need to do is drive traffic to that one website. All you need to be able to drive traffic to the website is provided in the training you get in the back office.
4. Do I need to have any experience with internet marketing to do this?
No previous experience is needed. The system has been made to be as simple and automated as possible so that all you have to do is focus on driving traffic to the website you are given.
5. How much money can I make per sale?
You will earn 100 % commissions of every sale that you generate. How much this amount is depends on what level member you are and what level your signup gets into.
To get a Diamond member commission you have to be Diamond member yourself first. If someone sign up as Diamond member under you – you will make a commission of $4625 for that single sale alone+ keeping $125 as a monthly residual income.
If you are Platinum member with a Platinum sign up under you – you will make a commission of $1625 for that one sale+ keeping $125 as a monthly residual income.
If you are Gold member with a Gold sign up under you – you will make a commission of $625 + keeping $125 as a monthly residual income.
If you are a Silver member with a Silver sign up under you – you will make a commission of $125 for that one sale(this is residual per month).
If you are a Basic member with a Basic sign up under you – you will make a commission of $25 for that sale(this is a residual per month).
Even if you are a Basic member you will have people sign up under you all the way up to Diamond level. However, you will only get the amount of commission up to what level you are at yourself.
6. Do I have to blog to be a part of this program? Do I have to make videos?
No, there is a ton of different traffic methods you can use to bring leads to your sales page. Blogging is encouraged but far far from needed to make sales. Consider it more an opportunity if you are interested. Videos are also far from necessary – you only use the traffic methods you are comfortable with yourself.
Each member may have a completely different way of getting their leads. The good thing is that there are so many options being taught so you can pick whatever method you prefer.
I hope you found this post helpful. If anything is unclear I would love to hear from you!
Lastly I just want to say that the Big Idea Mastermind members are a group of extremely helpful and positive people who only wants to help the guy next to them succeed. We have our own Facebook group for discussion and tip sharing, as well as our own events where we meet in person to “mastermind” and develop ourselves and each others so we can become even better in any aspect of our lives. Through Big Idea Mastermind and Empower Network I have made good friends from all over the world!
