Unleashing the Accidental $710,000 Secret Formula

When you take a look around the Internet marketing community, you’ll quickly learn that there is only a small percentage of gurus who are actually making a sizable amount of money while the majority continue to struggle. Some people may chalk it up to luck, but there is definitely more to it. The people who have found success have “figured it out” and the key is to really understand this “secret formula” for raking in the big money.

And that’s how Vick Strizheus has now come into the picture. His new product is called the Big Idea Mastermind and he wants to share his specific techniques with you for free. Let’s dive into today’s review and see what you can expect from Vick.

Over $700,000 in Under a Month

There are Internet moguls out there who are pulling in five or even six figures each month, but I doubt there are very many that are able to earn over $700,000 in under a month. But that is exactly what Vick was able to achieve not that long ago.


The strange thing is that he almost did it by accident. He was simply performing an experiment to see if this system would work — not unlike the “experiment” that John conducted to see if his blog could make a full-time income from part-time work and look at where John is today — and the results blew him away.

With zero marketing dollars and a modest mailing list of just 1,300 subscribers, Vick Strizheus generated $710,000 in 28 days. He posted up an introductory video where he briefly goes over this story, and then he encourages you to watch his free video series to see how can achieve the same kind of success by “doing the polar opposite of what everybody else is doing online.”

What’s in the Free Videos?

After you provide Vick with your email on the webpage above, you gain access to some free videos that describe his “secret formula.”


Vick starts out by going a little more in-depth about his story and why you should listen to what he has to say. My initial impression was that this was a lot of fluff and it was meant to “sell” you on his dot com lifestyle. We see him driving around town in a Ferrari and then he pulls up to a rather impressive-looking house. Thankfully, the first video then proceeds to have Vick dive into some real material.


Standing poolside, Vick proceeds to talk about his secret formula in more concrete terms. He doesn’t go into great detail, to be sure, but he does provide you with a quick overview of the three key components to his secret formula: vehicle, engine and fuel.

You can watch the video for yourself for further explanation (there are sadly no real video controls on the site, aside from being able to pause it by clicking on the video), but the crux of it is as follows: the vehicle is the offer that you want to promote, the engine is the system you’re going to use to promote that offer, and the fuel is getting traffic to your system. You need all three parts to work in unison in order to achieve any real success. And surprisingly, the fuel is not the hardest or most important part.

Get Ready for the Big Idea?

When I clicked through to watch Vick’s videos, I found that only the first video was immediately available to me. It seems that you need to sign up for his email updates and that’s how you gain access to the other videos over time. Video #2 should tell you “how to get money now” and video #3 describes “the biggest opportunity ever.” I’m not entirely sure what is the “big idea” and what is the real secret in his “secret formula,” but I suppose that’s why you need to sign up for this free video series to find out.

    I like how he uses a car as the three key components to his secret formula: vehicle, engine and fuel.

    I’ve seen this Big Idea Mastermind advertising all over internet. Some people make a killing with this 😀

    Best regards from I. C. Daniel

  4. Not again…okay, something common between him and John….I guess it’s car. 🙂

  5. It’ll be similar to Empower Network and MOBE, which we all know can make people a killing as long as they know how to market.

    The one piece of advice I will give to newbies though: always be careful if you’re planning a solo ad campaign to generate some quick subscribers. Most won’t send for Empower or BIM (Big Idea Mastermind) and MOBE is fast becoming a ‘no no’. Why? Because solo ad sellers’ lists have been smashed to bits by people sending the same offer.

    My tip is to create your own landing page with your own video message and put a unique spin on the product, then ask the solo ad sender if they’ll consider it. This usually tips it in your favour and you get an edge on the competition.

    1. Agree completely on the solo ad issue. Need to have a custom landing page (not hard to do) with your own sales info on the product, especially if it is one of the more popular products out there.

      Good comment Gareth

      1. Thanks Stephen.

        I’ve been there and done that myself and had others complain to me that no solo ad sellers will accept their offers. 9 times out of 10, when they went back with an original and engaging landing page, the seller accepted even if it did drive the traffic to Empower, BIM etc

    I believe you always give advice to us that works tremendously; but nowadays you are frequently preselling series of products and we are much confused what to avail and what to not
