Big Idea Mastermind Review

I decided to do a Big Idea Mastermind review myself after I was getting so many conflicting reviews about it while searching online.

I accidently stumbled across Vick Strizheus (the founder of Big Idea Mastermind) while searching for ways to pick a good Clickbank product to promote. I watched a few of his videos about traffic generation which were really impressive and this eventually led me to BIM.

Vick had created a series of 3 videos to promote it. The 1st is entitled "The $710,000 secret revealed", the 2nd: "How to get money now" and the 3rd: "The biggest opportunity ever". The first two are Vick Strizheus explaining how he used his existing system (the one he has used to generate a lot of money with Clickbank products) to generate over $710,000 in a month, how his system works, what inspired him to be succesful and how to make it work for you. The third video shows some of his new team explaining how they have earned money from the system many with no or very little previous experience.

It was after watching these that I decided to do some research of my own but after reading loads of reviews and watching endless you tube videos it appeared to me that almost all the people who were pro BIM were already a part of it and those who were against it had never joined

Now there are two ways to look at the "pro camp".

  1. People who are promoting it have had success and want to encourage other to have the same success.
  2. They haven't had much (or indeed any) success and are trying to get you to "buy in" just so they can earn some commission/recoup their money.

But what about the "anti camp" - how can you be anti something that you (or someone you know peronally) haven't actually experienced. Here are the main points I have picked up from them.

  1. The people in the 3rd video are actors.
  2. It's a scam. It's linked to Empower Network which is also a scam.
  3. It is all upsells and you are pressured into buying into the top level so they get more money from you.
  4. Vick Strizheus is a convicted conman so you shouldn't pay anything to him.

I was really on the fence here because I didn't want to buy into a scam but on the other hand I didn't want to miss out on something that could change my life, and that of my family. It costs $25 to sign up and so I decided that to me it was worth the risk of losing $25 to find out for sure either way. If I decide to stay then I will have to pay this fee on a monthly basis but if I don't I can just cancel and walk away.

So having joined a couple of weeks ago I have found that there is a lot to learn. You get taught strategies for generating leads that can be used in any business and for me the knowledge I have gained was worth the $25 joining fee however I am only just starting to put these things into practise whereas some people seem to hit the ground running - but that could be because they have invested more and so have a bigger incentive to succeed. However having been on the inside I now feel that I am in a better position to answer any questions for or against becoming a member.

You can read more about this on Big Idea Mastermind a review . However I would like to clear one thing up, you aren't pressurised in any way to upgrade to higher levels. It is recommended because being on a higher level does give you the ability to earn more money and you do get access to more training at higher levels - which you would expect really. But it's your choice if you want to go straight in at a high level, progress through the levels as you earn or just stay on the basic package - it's your choice, as it is to not join at all!

In Vick Strizheus' defence he was a young man (early twenties) with a wife and 3 children to support when he commited this crime. I am in no way condoning what he did but he made a mistake and has paid for it. Not many people are perfect, most have made mistakes they regret, that's life. I know I have regrets but what's important is that he has learnt from that mistake and has built his life back up. During the first webinar I was involved in someone commented about this in the comment box during the transmission. Vick didn't respond to it but one of the senior members there wrote that when Big Mastermind first started Vick was completely honest about his conviction and apologised to everyone for his past mistakes. I should probably point out that Big Idea Mastermind is free to join and no money is paid to Vick unless he actually sponsors you.

This isn't for everyone but it appears that people who are positive and believe in themselves are having more success with the program than those who are more negative and don't have that belief.

Hi Lily, yes I joined out of curiosity really - was rather cautious having read so many reviews - but have to say I have been pleasantly surprised. Have actually arrange to attend one of their meeting at the weekend in London. Will keep you posted!
