Daily tasks to become a successful internet marketer(advice from Vick Strizheus, day 38/90)

My topic today relates to what I learnt this weekend at the “Don’t be a wussy” event in Denver. As promised to you, I will try to relay the knowledge I gained form you this week.

First of all, did you check out the blog post yesterday? If not, stop reading right NOW and go look at it. It’s important you take that step before anything else. You can find yesterday’s blog post HERE. 

 

So… if you read yesterday’s post we can begin with the next step!

Vick Strizheus, my mentor and creator of Big Idea Mastermind, is the guy who taught me what I am about to teach you. I have actually been doing part of this for maybe 7 months now. However, just hearing him explain it all again in person made me grasp the importance of it even more. And I have tweaked my approach to this since then.

A lot of people get frustrated when they don’t see results overnight. They join an internet marketing business and think that they are going to wake up rich the next day. Well, they are in for a huge disappointment.  Internet marketing is NOT a get-rich-quick scheme. Just like any other business it takes time to build up. You need to invest some time and money into it for it to become the full time(but flexible and fun) career it can be. With full time I mean it can be your ONLY income if you apply the information and training you get properly. Top Earners use about 2-4 hours per day on their business. That’s it. NO, stop it! Don’t for a second think that they are any different from you. YOU CAN BE JUST AS SUCCESSFUL!  We all start from the same point. From scratch. We all have to learn how to become successful individually. Luckily, within the Big Idea Mastermind network we are all extremely excited when we can be of assistance to others. If you are brand new to internet marketing – we are there with massive support to help you succeed.

We want to see each and one of our team members be successful internet marketers that can choose for themselves exactly how they want to spend their time and their life. That’s what we are here for! We fulfill dreams!

To start your own business online – all you need to begin is $25 for Big Idea Mastermind/Empower Network. $25 – if you “can’t afford it”, this is nothing for you. There is ALWAYS a way to make something happen if you want it enough. If your desire and dreams are strong enough. $25 equals a big lunch or a night at the movie theatre. It just comes down to priorities.

If you create your own online business – yes you have to work on it and build it up like any other serious business – but you will eventually be able to live life on your own terms.. and isn’t that what we all really want?

OK, sorry – I lost track here for a minute.. Back to the “lesson” of today..

Now, Vick has been extremely successful with his internet marketing career. He has been working on this for about eight years now, seven of which have been very successful. If you are going to listen to any advice from anyone within this field – with him is a great place to start.

This weekend he gave us his very own recipe for success with internet marketing:

1. READ daily – at least 30 minutes reading and 30 minutes listening to someone:

– What?: books ton the subject of personal development are  recommended (This could be of Napoleon Hill, James Allen, Dale Carnegie, Maxwell Maltz, Zig Ziglar). You can also listen on audio books and/or watch videos on youtube etc within the topics you are trying to progress. If you are a member of EN/BIM you get loads of valuable training in your back office.

-Why? If you want to be successful in ANYTHING you have to work on yourself, know what you want and make clear intentions. Know how to work with your mind to make it work for you.

2. Spend 1-2 hours EACH DAY where you research your field. Shut off all Facebook, chats, phone etc and only work on research for what you are trying to do. If this is internet marketing – use search engines, blogs, youtube, pinterest, stumble upon etc to look for new ways to market your business.

-Why? This is how you can unlock your own tools for promoting your business. Find something that everyone else isn’t using. Use your creativity and create something new!

3. Apply what you learned. Use what you learned in the previous hours that day. If it’s some new knowledge from reading or listening to others – write a blog post about… or make a list or schedule(or whatever you may have learnt.. use it!). If it’s new traffic source – try it! PS. always start SMALL SCALE on new traffic sources – make sure they are effective and actually convert before you scale it up.

Finally – BE CONSISTENT! Keep working on this every day. Don’t take a break and don’t give up. As mentioned before, building a successful business takes more than one night.

Don’t you want a business you can have for the rest of your life?

Don’t you want to make your own hours and spend more time with the family?

Don’t you want to cut down work to about 2-3 hours per day and make more money than you do today?

Don’t you want to travel the world and live life NOW?

If this is what you want – Big Idea Mastermind can help YOU! You can get rid of any financial troubles you may have, you can achieve your deepest goals in life – but you have to be willing to take this as the serious business it is.

I hope you found this helpful. Please let me know with your comments below!

Big Idea Mastermind Explained/FAQ

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 ron@elitetrafficcommunity.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.

BIM back office journeys of growth

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!

Day 23/90 – My story: How I went from hating life to traveling the world and loving life!

Day 23-

So yesterday marked the start of my third week in doing a workout and a video every single day. Yesterday I increased my reps with the workouts too… all in all it feels great! Today was an easy day with this thing, even though some days still are harder..

In my video today I am talking about how my outlook on life was about 2+ years ago and how I took action to improve my life. It took me a while to realize what I had to do but as soon as I took the step forward it all made sense.

I am excited about what life has in store for me going forward. I know that my mindset has a lot to do with it. I know that I can control my own destiny and trust me, it will be a great one! 🙂

I hope you find some enjoyment/inspiration from my video today and that if you are stuck in a rut yourself, that you can get that little extra kick to snap out of it and work towards making your dreams become reality.

PS. would love a comment or a like 🙂

Day 21/90 – Why staying in tonight can make your next weekend so much more fun!

Day 21  and it’s Saturday!

I hope you are enjoying your weekend wherever in the world you may be right now. I just returned from a nice(and hot) day by the pool. Since we are going to the Empower Network event in Denver in two weeks, the lady and I decided to stay in this weekend and have our own little “success workshop”.

After a nice home cooked dinner we are settling down with our note pads to really STUDY our BIM/EmpowerNetwork back offices. There is SO MUCH hands on and valuable information available for us members there and I recommend everyone a part of this to utilize the knowledge base you have access to.

We decided to stay in tonight and work on our bright future.. We’ll go party later, all over the world 🙂

 

Day 20/90 – 90 Day Opportunity – Why be consistent?

Day 20!

I’ve been doing my workouts and my videos now for 20 days. Some days have been like a breeze, some days have been a huge hassle. What I’ve learnt is that as long as I am able to be consistent with my goals, as long as I do that thing each day that I set out to do, it only gets better and better. Doesn’t mean there are not still days that are difficult, it just means I can see the improvement happening. That’s motivation!

So remember, some days may be rough.. some days may be really hard! But find that strength and motivation in you to push through with your necessary action and you will be thrilled as you notice the progress come along.

Happy Friday!

Ron

Day 18/90 – How are you celebrating your Independence Day?

Happy July 4th!

A Photo my Girlfriend was Embarrassed to take/Teamwork

the photo my girlfriend was embarrassed to take www.journeysofgrowth.com

 

Haha, I know… Why would she be embarrassed by that photo, right?

Well, if you know my girlfriend you also know that she LOVES to follow rules. If there is any sign saying that something is not allowed to do, if there is anything you may even remotely think that you are not supposed to do – she will NOT do it. I have a big struggle making her cross the street on a stop sign even though there are no cars in sight. Rules are rules, she says.

The other day we were biking around town and not only did I have to leave her in a couple of intersections because she said she was “considered a car” when she was on the bike(so she follows car rules), but she was visibly worried when I decided to go climb this statue somewhere on the mall. “This is probably not allowed, ” she said and snapped a few photos as quickly as she could.. lol

She is the BEST though! 🙂

Anyways, I wanted to share this photo with you today as I felt like it’s a good image of Big Idea Mastermind. How the members of this network will work their asses off to help each other “crack the code” and figure out how each individual can find their place in the internet marketing business. To help find ways for everyone to live the comfortable, flexible life most people only dream of.

It’s not as hard as it may look from this photo though… we have a FANTASTIC team of experienced as well as newbie marketers. Everyone joining is welcomed with open arms. We are all willing to help bring the new people up and towards their deserved success. Doesn’t matter what level you are when you get into the network, we take you from where you are and we help elevate you as a TEAM.

We’re also a happy bunch for the most part. Personal development is a big part of Big Idea Mastermind. We are not your regular internet marketers. We believe that to change your life you have to start with changing your mindset. The mind is a wicked powerful thing! You can literally THINK yourself broke and you can THINK yourself RICH.

Does that mean that Big Idea Mastermind is some bogus thing where everyone sits around just thinking very positive thoughts really hard hoping that it will do some magic and make money appear from thin air? Lol, no. But we believe good can only bring good along. We believe there is no point spending time worrying, being frustrated, being concerned, being scared, being angry… It will lead you NOWHERE. Those emotions will only prohibit you from focusing on your goal and on what you need to do to make your dreams become reality. This is also why a lot of my blog talks about personal development. I know it 100 % changed my life when I joined these guys about 6-7 months ago and started working on my mindset.

Now, the world is my oyster! Anything is possible for me. I though I was stuck where I was, working for someone else at minimum pay. Absolutely no flexibility in my day whatsoever. Max 2 weeks vacation per year. I thought that was pretty much it for me. I was bitter and angry.

No more!

I am reaching for the stars! No, I am reaching for another galaxy far far away. I’m going to make it! I AM making it. Because I believe I can.

It’s as simple as that.
