Barely 10 days after reaching 4,000 AGLOCO sign ups, I have passed the 5,000 sign up mark in my AGLOCO network. As I write this post, I am sitting at 5,072 total referrals with 571 Directs.
Some Members Need a Slap
Normally, my AGLOCO updates are very positive affairs but this one is going to be a bit different. There is a lot of misinformation floating around the Internet about AGLOCO. Unfortunately, high profile AGLOCO members are supplying some of this misinformation. I refer you to this blog post by Harold entitled YouTube Founder Chad Hurley Says AGLOCO Wins.
Chad Hurley just joined Bill Gates in endorsing exactly what AGLOCO wants to do – give the economic value to the user.
Stop Putting Words Into Other People’s mouth!
YouTube or Live Search wanting to go to a revenue sharing model does NOT endorse what AGLOCO is trying to do. Now we have members running around saying AGLOCO is being funded by Bill Gates and Chad Hurly backs AGLOCO. It didn’t help matters that the company blog was stupid enough to linked to Harold’s post. Now I see they’re trying to clean up the mess.
As an AGLOCO Top Gun member, I am very mindful of the fact that what I say will be repeated (and twisted) by other members. Therefore, I have to make sure all my facts are correct. I ask all AGLOCO members (especially top members) to check their facts before making wild and crazy claims.
The AGLOCO company blog issued an official post on the status of the much anticipated AGLOCO Viewbar.
The good news is that the Viewbar release is currently slated for March. And the bad news is the Viewbar release is currently slated for March.
Obviously, I have two minds when it comes to this. I really want the Viewbar out there. I want Members to start using it. I want advertisers and online merchants using it. And I want to start generating revenue for Members and the company.
On the other hand, I also want more time to get ready for the Viewbar. As a part of the AGLOCO Revenue team, I want to have more time to get more agreements in place so the Viewbar makes more money even at the start.
Personally, I would like AGLOCO to delay the Viewbar longer because it gives me more time to add Directs to the front line. Right now, it’s not that hard to sign up people because there’s very little competition. Once the Viewbar becomes available for download, the recruiting competition will really heat up. I can understand why many members want the Viewbar now. It will make recruiting a lot easier. For me, I rather have AGLOCO wait until I get to 1,000 Directs. However, I don’t think they’re going to listen to me.
