Here’s a detailed Q&A for you guys who are looking to find out more about Big Idea Mastermind :
Q: So What Is Big Idea Mastermind?
Big Idea Mastermind is the brain-child of Vick Strizheus, otherwise known as “The King of Online Traffic”. Simply stated, It is a system designed to provide training and software that will help develop you as a person and as a marketer, teaching you all the ways in which you can drive traffic and create an online income for yourself.
Q: Why Is Everyone Talking About It?
There are a few big draws:
#1. – The ability for you to earn high ticket commissions. When marketing this system, there is the potential to earn either monthly recurring $25+$100 commissions or even big $500, $1,000 and $3,000 sales.
#2. – Vick’s recently released “30 Days to 10K System”, which is now available in the “Platinum Level”:
Vick essentially lays out in a step-by-step fashion everything he would do in detail (day 1: advertise here, day 2: advertise there… etc..) to go from $0 to $10,000/month. Vick has mentioned that if you follow all the steps to a “T”, he would be surprised if you weren’t making at least $10,000 by the end of the program. (Of course, income disclaimer, there is no guarantee of income, it depends on you and the amount of effort you put in).
Q: So How Do You Earn These Commissions? And How is Big Idea Mastermind Connected With Empower Network?
OK, here is where a lot of people get confused. Big Idea Mastermind is essentially a free system. There are several levels to it and they are as follows:
1. Basic Level (Entry level product)
2. Silver Level
3. Gold Level
4. Platinum Level
5. Diamond Level (Top level product)
What you need to understand is that each level of Big Idea Mastermind is ‘linked’ to a equivalent level of Empower Network. In order to get a certain level of Big Idea Mastermind for free, you need to purchase the equivalent level within Empower Network. So here are the levels within Empower Network:
Viral Blogging System (Entry level product)
Costa Rica Intensive
Masters Course (Top level product)
So, if you purchase the Viral Blogging System in Empower Network for $25/month, you immediately get access to the Basic level of Big Idea Mastermind.
If you get the Inner Circle level in Empower Network, you get the Silver level in Big Idea Mastermind….and so on..
Essentially you are getting 2 systems for the price of 1.
Q: How Much Are People Actually Earning With this?
I am friends with quite a few people who are earning full-time incomes through promoting Big Idea Mastermind products. I myself generated $2,000 in my first 2 months, $3.7k my 3rd month and 4.1k by my 4th month. However this is no guarantee that you yourself will make similar income. You may make more money in your first few months, you may make about the same as I did, you may make $0, it all depends on you and how much action you take!
Some images of my sales(opens in a new window):
Having said that, one interesting thing is that at each of the Empower Network/BIM events held every 3 months, they ask everyone in the audience who has made ANY money to stand up….each time over 90% of the audience stands… I’ve personally been to the event in Austin, Chicago and Denver and have seen this happen each time..it’s pretty crazy.
I’m not sure why the percentage of people earning money is so high, perhaps partly due to the draw of being able to earn 100% commissions.
Personally, I have found it to be the easiest method to reach a full-time income in a relatively short period of time. If you check this blog out (mikeiser.com), you will see that it took me about 1 1/2 – 2 years to get up to 5k/month…in comparison when I started Big Idea Mastermind, I got up to a comparable level in 4 months time.
Granted I did have more experience the 2nd time around, but I do believe it is easier to hit full-time income due simply to the fact that all you need is 1 high ticket sale to earn anywhere from $3,000 – $4,625 in one POP.
BTW you can check out what the average person makes over here: Income Disclaimer
The average person gets in and does nothing, or very little, so if you want to earn the big money, you have to be willing to put in the work just like any other business!
Q: What Did YOU Do To Make That Money With Big Idea Mastermind?
I share everything I did here. In one of the follow-up videos I reveal EXACTLY what I did to make $4,093.48 on my 4th month in Big Idea Mastermind.

So apparently there are still 3 of you still poking in now and then…
Well, about how things are going, here’s a little video I put together a couple of weeks ago about the results I had with The Big Idea Mastermind:
Pretty damn crazy…
The thing about Big Idea Mastermind is that it hasn’t even been available (until today)…
The only reason I’ve been able to see results with it is because I got in during the pre-launch back around the end of December 2012 as a “Founding Member”.
As a founding member, I also attended The Big Idea Mastermind Millionaires Retreat in Miami Florida this past February 7th-9th, where we were treated to free lunch/dinner, a trip on a cruise ship and some awesome training :
Now, you’re probably wondering at this point:
Well, the link is now LIVE, so check it out for yourself here:
The Big Idea Mastermind is like a companion product to The Empower Network system, where if you buy 1 tier of the Empower Network system, you also get access to the same associated tier with The Big Idea Mastermind.
The tiers for BIM are:
Basic – Silver – Gold – Platinum – Diamond
The associated EN tiers are:
The EN Blogging platform – Inner Circle – Costa Rica Intensive – 15k Formula – Masters Retreat
So you end up getting 2 products for the price of 1.
More importantly, you have the ability to earn monthly RESIDUAL commissions of $25 and $100…as well as 1 time commissions of $500, $1,000 and $3,000.
For the same amount of marketing effort you spend to get a simple $25-50 commission from say Clickbank, you can be getting $500, 1k or even 3k sales. That’s how I made $3,500 in 2 days, with a $500 sale and a $3,000 sale
The 2 systems combined will have a crazy amount of info on how best to market to get some sales coming in (I’ve yet to get through ALL the audio and video training of Empower Network after several months)… The Big Idea Mastermind is going to have even more interesting training, namely the 30 days to 10k program which is going to be a step-by-step guide of actions to take on a daily basis to get to a realistic 10k/month with this system:
We just finished up a private webinar before the launch for all pre-launch BIM members and man…I am ready to HIT THIS THING HARD!
I’m going to be doing a lot of paid advertising and am pretty excited about where this system is going to take me income wise over the next few months!
If you’re interested in having a go at this business, like REAL serious…I think it would be cool to work with a few of the former readers of this blog
If you want to make this thing happen for yourself as well and you are 100% committed, serious and teachable…I don’t mind working alongside you and sharing what I learn along my journey about what works and what doesn’t…
What to focus on…
How to best start making money..
Basically help a few other people along with what I currently know and what I figure out as my income rises.
If you want to jump on board with me on this you can do it below:
I’m sure at a certain point in my business I won’t be able to keep offering that to absolutely EVERYONE. But I can tell you that as long as you’re serious, whether you’re a former reader of this blog or not, I’ll be there to help you out… I’ve got your back
And BTW, as long as people pop in every now and then over here and post a comment saying they’re still interested in seeing updates, I’ll keep making updates
-MikemanMail this post]]>
Wow, has it really been over 2 years since my last update?
Anyways, I haven’t died, I’ve just been busy enjoying life
Having worked some 400 odd days straight to develop this passive income stream of about 5k/month, I didn’t have to do very much to maintain that, so for about 1 1/2 years after my last post, I just focused on other things, other than making money…
The whole IM game was an afterthought…
I totally detached myself from it. I stopped regularly visiting IM websites and stopped checking in on my own website(apologies to those who left notes here!)…as long as the bank deposits kept coming in, I was happy to pursue my hobbies/passions with my new-found time freedom.
life was good…
But, as you’re all aware, Google Penguin came about in 2012.
At first I wasn’t too worried, but come summer of 2012, I started realizing I’ve got to get back into the game…
It’s amazing how quickly the IM game can change. I was completely unaware of the current state of SEO, what worked, what didn’t work….I was also completely unaware of what all the latest backlinking programs/memberships/strategies were, what the “latest and greatest” products were, what the popular WSO’s of the day were …
I had a LOT of catching up to do.
But one thing I realized was that I could either continue battling against the Google algorithms and try and get all my sites ranking again, or I could just focus on another method of making money all-together. I decided on the latter.
Instead of fighting to get my websites ranking once again, I turned to video. I noticed Google was valuing video and allowing them to rank high with relative ease, so I decided to implement a WSO I had read on ranking Youtube videos for Clickbank products.
I went all out with this method and in about 2-3 months time, I took my Clickbank income from about $0(yup, all those CB snipers died out) to $1,000/month:
Now while that income was all well and good, the problem was it was not something consistent. Videos were constantly getting taken down by Youtube, so it was a constant battle to re-upload deleted videos, hence, the struggle to find another means of increasing my income continued…
I went through a phase of looking through many WSO’s and trying to figure out what methods I should be focusing on to bring in some money. I wanted to find at least one method which would produce results relatively quickly and one which was more long term.
As far as long term was concerned, I knew that I no longer wanted to mess around with SEO, I had decided my main focus for long term results is going to be paid traffic/media buys. There is never going to be a shortage of advertising on the Internet and as long as you can get good at generating a good ROI on your investment, just scale up your winning campaigns and you’re golden.
To that end, near the end of the year I picked up a course by Vick Strizheus called High Traffic Academy (HTA). It was pricey, but it contained an abundance of great info on various paid traffic methods. After getting through it, I had a short stint with Solo Ads. I built a list of about 850 people in 1 month before I decided I needed to lay off of paid advertising, for a while, and revert back to free methods of traffic generation…
Back around the middle of December, Vick introduced HTA members to a system he was working on called “The Big Idea Mastermind” (BIM). This was a system which he intended to roll out in connection with Empower Network.
For those of you who don’t know about Empower Network, I’ll briefly explain it.
Basically, you can get in at a $25/month level and get access to your own blog on their PR 4 domain which has an Alexa Ranking of 228 in the US and 521 worldwide. Once you’re in at that level, you can then sell that $25 product for recurring $25 commissions where-in you get to keep 100% of the commissions you earn, minus some merchant account fees and “pass-ups”(every 2nd, 4th, 6th and thereafter, every 5th sale are sent to the person who signed you up to the program)
There is also a recurring $100/month product, the “Inner Circle” audios, a $500 “Costa Rica” product, a $1,000 “15k Formula” product and finally a $3,500 “Masters Retreat” product.
In order to get the commission for selling each product, you need to have purchased it. Otherwise, if you sign someone up while you’re at the $25 level and they upgrade all the way to the $3,500 product, you “pass-up” all those commissions ($100, $500, 1k, 3.5k) to whoever is above you that has all the products and is thus eligible to receive those commissions.
As for BIM….
The Big Idea Mastermind (which isn’t out yet) is basically additional training which is given to you free only if you sign up to Empower Network with someone who is a Big Idea Mastermind Founding Member. So if you sign in at the $25 level, you will not only get access to whatever Empower Network gives you, you will also get the associated BIM basic level. If you get the $100 package, you will also get the BIM silver level. There is then a gold, platinum and finally diamond level. Each BIM level comes with separate training…The platinum/diamond levels will come with a 30 day plan to 10k/month (If you’re at the Masters Retreat level/Diamond level, you have the potential to make 4-5k in one day which would make it that much easier to attain this income goal).
SO…ya…I have gone “all-in” with the Empower Network/BIM program and this is now where my focus lies for long-term success in the IM arena
As far as blogging is concerned, I’ve recently started blogging a bit on my Empower Network blog, so for the few who look back on this site once in a blue moon, that’s where you’ll be able to find me
I’ve recently gone to the Empower Network Event in Austin TX (January 18th – 20th), it was quite the experience and I got a bit of footage I’ll be releasing on that blog I’ll also be sharing any nuggets I come across in my reading/listening of audios that can be helpful to anyone in the Internet Marketing arena.
As far as how much money I’ve made thus far, I’m just getting started, haven’t really done much, however THIS post here is a vlog on my first $1,000 day
If any of you guys who used to read this blog or post here stop by again, I hope you’re all doing awesome in your Internet businesses! No doubt by now many of you are ‘living the dream’ and enjoying the fruits of your labors

Well, as some of you know, it seems that near the end of October, Google made an algorithm change which totally changed the rankings of many people’s sites…
For some, it was for the better, for a lot, it was for the worse.
I personally have noticed 3 of my top sites disappeared from the 1st page of Google…this resulted in a drop in income.. Up until Oct 24th, my main adsense account had an average intake of $110/day. From the 25th to the 31st though, it’s only been an average of $79/day.
My other adsense account also took a hit on the 28th, going from $18/day to $6/day..
It seems as if my main adsense account is doing a bit better today, the day’s not over yet (6 more hours left) and it’s sitting at $84 so far…but it’s just due to some of my other sites picking up the slack for the 3 top sites that were lost. You see, I have about 10 or more sites that perform well, but they don’t always perform great every single day…so it’s just some of those other sites that weren’t hit, making up for the 3 sites that I lost, for today…
I’m sure I’ve lost a lot more top page rankings for my sites, but I haven’t analyzed past my top few sites…
And who knows why they knocked some sites back while others remained fine. I saw someone post they thought it might be the backlinks, but I have sites that I backlinked identically to the ones that got thrown off page 1 and yet they are still up on page 1 :/…so who knows. But something on the sites that lost their ranking triggered this, whether it’s related to the theme of the site, the content, the backlinks, or maybe it’s a combination of factors.
Anyway, the only answer is to keep on backlinking via a variety of different methods and hope that in time they return. Sites that are thrown back in ranking, as long as they’re not de-indexed, CAN return, only thing you can do is just work on your backlinks. Thing is, you’ll never know when Google decides to bring it back to page 1, so just focus on backlinking up a bunch of your sites and don’t hold your breath for anything returning in “X” amount of time.
One thing of note that happened on the 19th of October was that I saw a nice adsense high on my main account of $160.07 and a grand total of $177.98 overall. I believe this is an adsense high for me and it happened right after I updated some of my top earners with new content. I’m guessing that somehow raised the rankings of these sites which lead to more traffic and thus more money…
The following day I made $142.23 on my main and $152 total… but then following that, I was back down to $92.95, so it seems like that was short lived.
Unfortunately Clickbank seems to have taken a beating this month! I went *8* full days (Oct 14th – 21st) without making a single sale! I’ve never had so many days go by without a sale in forever!
I do know that the drop in hops was part of the problem. I had only 3,595 hops in October and from that made $392.27 Gross….September I had 4,903 hops and $627.45 Gross. Comparing again, August I had 7,095 hops and $896.09…
I can’t say that it’s only because of the hops though because back in February, off of 4,391 hops I made $1,317.91…It could be the products or it could be that I’m not getting hops for the good converting keyword domains anymore.
Here’s a look at what it’s been like the last while:
OK, here are the totals:
Adsense Total = $3,711.38 (An adsense high for me! My highest before this was $3,563.67 in March..October’s total is up $389.69 from $3,321.69 last month.)
CB Hops = 3,595 (Last Month = 4,903)
CB = $392.27 GROSS
CB = 21 sales/0 refunds
CB = $392.27 NET
9 UAW Sales = $214.40
1 BLS Sale = $29.10
EBay = $15.10 CAN = $14.90 US
Grand Total = $4,362.05

This past month my adsense revenue has continued to go up without me doing anything… I noticed that recently my main adsense account has been having $100+ days again, the last time that happened was before Mayday, back in May. Here are a few screenshots to show you what I’m seeing(images cropped to fit on screen):
My main adsense acct in August:
Acct in September:
As you can see, around the middle of September, it began breaking $100 again after not having done it for a little over 3 months.. It’s gone from a $70 avg to $94, almost a $15 increase..probably a bit more considering the change happened mid Sept…my avg from Sept 14th – 30th was $102.97.
This isn’t my full adsense earnings for this month as well…my total adsense earnings for the month of Sept was actually $3,321.69…pretty close to my highest adsense month which was $3,563.67 in March.
Here’s a full breakdown of the September earnings:
Adsense = $3,321.69 (up $721.40 from last month’s $2,600.29)
CB Hops = 4,903 (down from 7,095 last month)
CB Gross = $627.45 (down from $896.09 last month)
CB Refunds = 1 ($16.61)
CB Net = $601.07
9 UAW Sales = $187.60
2 BLS Sales = $58.20
Ebay = $16.26CAN = $15.77 US
Grand Total = $4,184.33 (up $395.07 from $3,789.26 last month)
-MikeMail this post]]>
As I mentioned in the previous post’s comments section, I have recently noticed another increase in adsense revenue.. It started funnily enough on my birthday, Aug 29th, and is carrying on steadily…
The increase is about $16/day. I obviously can’t go into specifics about what I’m seeing, what I can say though is that while there has been a slight increase in impressions, it is mainly the clicks and eCPM which is causing this.
I haven’t really done anything to bring this about, but I can see that a good chunk of this increase is coming from a few of my main/bigger sites performing better..The reason? While I have been adding a few pages to my sites here and there, I didn’t add any to these sites which are bringing in more money so it could be due to the sites just aging, however that’s just a guess.
I’m not too interested in finding out the cause as regardless of what it is, it won’t change my approach/plan of action when I go full on into my business again, which is just to continuously add more content to my sites then backlink as many of the new pages as I can. I like to keep things simple.
Here’s a look at the incrase in income in screenshots (I cut and pasted them from these 2 images here and here, so that they’d fit on the blog):
August 15th – August 28th (2 weeks before the increase)
August 29th – September 11th(2 weeks after the increase)
As you can see there has been an increase of about $16…However this isn’t ALL the adsense money I’ve been making.
You see one thing I’ve alluded to in the past but never officially stated was that I do have another adsense account under a separate legal entity…I never mentioned it before for a few reasons, partly because I wasn’t comfortable talking about such a matter, also partly because I didn’t want my blog to become a place to discuss/explain the process of setting up additional adsense accounts.
For those who don’t know, it is within the TOS to have 2 adsense accounts PROVIDED they are under 2 separate legal entities (ex: a Corporation and under your name, or under 2 corporations)… you can’t setup 2 under the same name though.
This other adsense account at the moment brings on average an additional $14/day so really my income has gone from $81/day to $97/day…not bad considering at my peak I was making $100-120/day.
BTW on another topic, here in Toronto, there is The International Film Festival(TIFF) going on..lots of stars are here, Edward Norton, Zack Galifianakis, Ben Affleck, Bill Murray, Mickey Rourke…I overheard some girls mentioning they saw “Fox” and how small she was, I’m guessing Megan Fox too, among others…
I was just downtown doing some shopping, updating my wardrobe and I saw this barricade, a mob of people and police officers… I had no idea this was going on! I just wanted to get into this store, ‘Style Exchange’ and had to ASK to be let in as it was next door to some theater where all these stars apparently were headed. I didn’t see anyone I recognized, but when I was trying to figure out what was going on, I remember seeing some guy waving in my general direction(I was walking behind the mob) as if he was someone of import.
I’m not one to be into this stuff, but just cool to know that’s going on in the neighborhood :>
Oh and about the clothes, I’m usually the type who’s really into dressing up nice, but got lazy about it since getting into IM…This past week or so I think I accrued 23 new casual dress shirts/t-shirts (Affliction/Guess/Buffalo/Le Chateau), 5 new jeans(Diesel/Parasuco/Buffalo/Guess), 2 new shoes (Jo Ghost) and 3 new jackets (Buffalo/Guess/Firetrap). I tend to like getting stuff that is unique looking, thing is this stuff all ends up being damn expensive!

As I mentioned in the previous post, things did pick back up a bit for August adsense-wise. Here now are the totals for the month of August:
Adsense = $2,600.29 (up $403.21 from last month’s $2,197.08)
CB Hops = 7,095
CB = $896.09 GROSS
CB Refunds = 1 ($16.61)
CB = $879.48 NET
9 UAW sales = $241.20
1 BLS sale = $29.10
1 XFactor sale = $30.80
Ebay = $8.85 CAN (about $8.39 US)
Grand Total = $3,789.26 (Of course if Human Rewriter paid me, this would be at $4,000 for the month).
-MikeMail this post]]>
It’s a month late, but figured I’d post them up anyways…Here’s just a quick look at what the totals were for July:
Adsense = $2,197.08
CB Hops = 6,594
CB = $724.02 GROSS
CB Refunds = 2 ($59.90)
CB = $664.12 NET
11 UAW sales = $294.80
1 BLS sale = $29.10
Ebay = $2.91 CAN (about $2.77 US)
Note: Human Rewriter I won’t count as they not currently paying their affiliates, however if I did count it, it would be another $200-250.
Grand Total = $3,187.87
Good news is that adsense income is up again since August 1st, so August totals should be better.
-MikeMail this post]]>
As you know, many marketers as well as myself have used Human Rewriter for content…They’ve always delivered what I ordered in the time frame they specified and I’ve had no issues with the quality of the work for my purposes(UAW submissions)…
However, these days the company’s integrity is in question as they have not been making affiliate payments.
I noticed back on May the 1st of 2010 that I had not been paid via the automated payment system since March 15th (payments are supposed to go out twice a month). I e-mailed support and was told that I wasn’t picked up by the automated system for whatever reason and they sent me the payment manually.
That was all well and good, however since then(May 1st) I have not received any payment…
I sent a message July 22nd to support to ensure that my payment would be sent out, I was told it would be automatically sent on August 1st.. Still no payment was sent however, so I e-mailed them again on August 5th to let them know, I was told by support they’d speak to accounting about this. I sent an e-mail asking for an update on August 11th and August 16th, and received no reply, so on August 24th I sent the following:
It’s been 12 days since my last message, and 18 days since I sent the initial message and I haven’t received any response regarding the lack of payment for the last few months. There is currently $615.40 owing and I’ve waited past a reasonable amount of time, without any word back.
Is Human Rewriter going to honor this payment? If I do not hear back, I won’t have any other choice but to make sure other Human Rewriter user’s or potential users aware of what is happening here.
I’d like to be put in touch with Terry Smith from accounting to have the $615.40 transferred manually.
Following this e-mail I did receive a response. It appeared to be a copy and pasted message as the previous recipient’s name was left in:
Unfortunately I have little (actually no) control over affiliate payments, and cannot make a statement as to when they will resume being paid out. I have attempted to contact our accounting people several times in regards to this issue, but have received no response. All I can tell you is that we will more than likely be phasing out the affiliates program when the site undergoes its next update. It also looks like the business may be changing hands.
Their affiliate commission model is to pay 20% commissions on what referrals spend for life, so it seems as if they are no longer willing or able to continue with that and at the same time have decided to sell the business…
No communication between support and accounting + not paying + selling the business? Doesn’t look good…
Seeing as how I did not see anyone talking about this on the Warrior Forum or anywhere else, I thought I’d make a post to let others who use or may use this service know exactly what is happening.
Below is the email transcript:
Human Rewriter – 1
Human Rewriter – 2
Human Rewriter – 3
Human Rewriter – 4
Human Rewriter – 5
If anything changes, I’ll post about it, but right now, not looking good.Mail this post]]>
As you know by now, I decided to take an extended break from this website…Even when I achieved a full time income online, I did not stop updating/working to fully enjoy what I’d done, so I figured now was the time to do that.
I thought about coming back and making a small update post, but then realized I’d likely just get pulled back into updating my site, something I didn’t want to do just yet..so I completely took this site off my mind and did not check in on it for the past month.
Sorry to those who had posts caught in ‘pending’ status…People who have at least made 1 post are put on the auto-approve list (unless a word triggers it to go to pending)…Then of course there are spam users/posts that wind up in the trash. I usually add new posters manually to an auto approve list, but was not around to do that.
After taking this break, there is one thing that I’ve learned, even at this stage in the game… it is ’still’ beneficial to keep yourself accountable via something such as a daily blog as it does help you to get more work accomplished.
Regarding the past month, I have intentionally not worked on my business as much as I normally would, however I do have two writers who continue to produce content for my sites on a daily basis. A lot of this content is made to expand out a lot of my sites which are at 5-6 pages to 10-11 pages…I’m now at a point where I’ve had all that extra content written out for about 80-100 of my sites and I’m in the process of posting those up. After this I’m going to focus on building up the writing on a select few(20 or so) websites. The focus has mainly been on content lately, I’m going to have my hands full when I get around to backlinking..
One other thing to note is that I’ve found my adsense income has picked up since around the beginning of August. In June, when the Google change hit the sites, it was at an average of around $71/day…Now for the first 10 days of August it seems to be around $85/day on average. The main reason for this is due to an increase in eCPM. What caused this? I’m not 100% sure…backlinking is usually the cause for increases in income, however the only thing I’ve done with regards to backlinking were the UAW re-submits.
BTW, at the moment I don’t have any plans to do any structured updating, so updates/me checking in may be sporadic, although that may change down the road…
And again, in the meantime, feel free to talk in the comments below :>
