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.

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!

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.
