An Unbiased Big Idea Mastermind Review

So you are looking for a Big Idea Mastermind review because you heard all of the buzz and maybe joined the Facebook group, but you’re not quite convinced.

If you do a simple search then you will see that most Big Idea Mastermind reviews are biased from those actually in the group.

Not this guy.

I’m going to slap down a 100% unbiased review of Big Idea Mastermind because I want you to have all the information from a neutral source.

So here we go…

Big Idea Mastermind Review – What’s All the Fuss?

Big Idea Mastermind, or BIM, is a an automated marketing system made by Vick Strizheus, who is a top earner inside of Empower Network.

Check out my full review of Empower Network.

This is powerful because all you have to do is drive traffic to this page and the sales funnel takes care of the rest. This is great for beginners and newbies who don’t have a built sales funnel in place.

The idea is to smack the viewer with free value for the first few videos, get them excited and bought-in, and then to sell them into Empower Network.

It also has autoresponders set in place for email marketing follow up. It takes 7-14 days to close sales, so the power is in the follow up.

It’s linked up with the Empower Network platform so whenever you upgrade with EN, you automatically upgrade inside of the Big Idea Mastermind training platform.

Before we get too excited, let’s talk about the man behind the plan, Vick Strizheus.

Who is Vitaliy Strizheus (aka Vick)

There is a big black mark next to Vitaliy Strizheus because of his background scam story.

In 2009, he was sentenced to 90 days in jail during the weekends, 5 years probation, and he wasn’t allowed to leave his home state for grand theft.

Ouch.

This all happened because he was an insurance agent and paid himself $30,000 in advanced commissions for faking applications.

Obviously, he got caught and had to pay most of the money back. Afterwards he changed his name to Vick.

There has been some other shady actions that Vick Striheus has been involved with regarding his other products.

– 7-Figure Marketing School
– High Traffic Academy
– 48 Hour Cash Machine
– Global Success Club

People have accused Vick for stealing their leads and money, and not living up to promises that he made.

Check out the ripoff reports here.

I can’t and I won’t tell you who to follow and who not to follow, but I do want to make you aware of Vick’s past so that you can do further research on your own before making a decision.

 Big Idea Mastermind Scam?

Always take scam accusations with a huge grain of salt.

The fact of the matter is that everyone comes in with the dream of making millions of dollars online, but only a handful actually put in the effort to get there.

The truth is that you can make good money with any legitimate system or business opportunity if you are willing to put in the blood, sweat, and tears.

In this case, I would be more concerned with the background of Vick Strizheus, and I would recommend doing more research to make sure your money is invested in the right opportunity.

Big Idea Mastermind Summary

There are some pro’s and con’s to joining the Big Idea Mastermind team.

Pros:

– Professional looking squeeze pages
– Email marketing autoresponders
– Networking with other aspiring entrepreneurs
– Leveraging the popular BIM name (social proof)
– A unique sales funnel that other members in Empower Network won’t have

Cons:

– You are branding Vick Strizheus and the Big Idea Mastermind instead of yourself
– If all the resources and training are inside of BIM, then what leadership role are you providing?
– With so many members inside of BIM promoting this funnel it will get watered down.

The Bottom Line:

When you join the network marketing or mlm space, you want to be branding yourself NOT the company.

If the BIM group every went away, then all of the time and effort your put into marketing and promoting will be lost.

If you are sold on joining after reading this Big Idea Mastermind review, then I can teach you how to brand yourself as a leader and authority, so that you won’t worry about BIM stealing the show.
