6,000 AGLOCO Sign Ups

I was having so much fun guest blogging that I completely forgot to check my AGLOCO stats. It’s a good thing I finally remember to look because I passed another milestone today: 6,000 AGLOCO referrals.


This meets my stated goal of having 5,000 to 7,500 total referrals by Viewbar release time, which is coming up real soon. My hopes for AGLOCO to delay the Viewbar longer isn’t going to happen so I’ll just have to make do with what I got. I was hoping to refer 1,000 to the front line but 625 is not too bad.

Why I’m Doing AGLOCO

My experience with AGLOCO comes from AllAdvantage. I’m not sure if you were around the first time, but AllAdvantage was the first AGLOCO. Created during the first dot com boom, AllAdvantage raised over $100 million in venture capital and it basically paid all of it to the members who ran the Viewbar. I think that was the first time in corporate history when the venture capitalists lost and the little guy (Viewbar users) won. AllAdvantage went down with the Dot Com crash. However, while it was up, I made over $25,000 from it.

Do I believe in AGLOCO? Yes I do. I’ve been there before. I made money from it. People in my network made money from it. Did we get rich? No we didn’t. But we made money for doing something we were already doing. Even though the average member made $5 to $10 per month, that is still pure profit because this doesn’t cost anything.

The beauty of AGLOCO is the average member can’t lose. Unless you spend less than 5 hours a month on the Internet, you are not making any extra time commitment and it doesn’t cost you anything. If you never sign up anyone and just surf your five hours each month, the worst thing that can happen is you make money.

Look at it this way. You can sit by the sideline and do nothing, and gain nothing. You can join AGLOCO, just run the Viewbar, and not promote it. Still won’t cost you anything and you’ll make a few bucks. You can take a chance and promote it, built a network, maybe luck out and sign up some guy like me who runs with it (McCall signed up just 110 people but those people went to sign up 17,000 more).

If AGLOCO fails, what have you lost in terms of time or money? If it hits big, what have you lost by standing on the sideline? AllAdvantage failed, but I still made $25,000 in the process. AGLOCO may fail or AGLOCO maybe the next YouTube. I don’t know. All I do know is the risk to reward ratio is so great, I can’t pass it up and neither should you.

  1. Bryan Baker says:

    Thanks for the update John. I too am in Agloco, but with a shy 16 referrals. Mind commenting on how long you were with AllAdvantage and what your stats were with them? Because $25,000 is a lot to make for just surfing the web!

    Thanks. I’ll check back tomorrow night(busy all day tomorrow).

    1. John Chow says:

      I had over 10,000 referrals and was increasing by over 100 per day.

  2. Shawn Knight says:

    Congrats on passing the 6k mark! I am currently at 41 total referrals and personally can’t wait til the Viewbar is released. I think it will help some with recruiting some of the ‘stubborn’ potentials out there :mrgreen:

    1. I’ve had a similar experience in that many of the people I have talked to want to wait and see how things are going once the Viewbar is released.

      I’ve only got a few people in my network and none of them have signed anyone up. At this point, I just want to see the Viewbar released so we can get started with it.

  3. Gary says:

    😯 ok . . . i’ll admit it . . . i can’t catch you . . congrats on reaching the 6K mark . . . . I actually can’t wait until they release the toolbar . . . I’m curious to see what percentage of my referrals will actually remember to install the toolbar . . . i’m guessing 25% . . what’s your take and what are you going to do to remind them?

    1. John Chow says:

      When the Viewbar comes out, you can bet I’ll be posting about it. :mrgreen:

  4. Asela says:

    Hey John congratulations.. Arn’t U like to Use my Agloco Reffer Link In Your post for a week & Help this poor guy to build the Network… 🙄 😉

  5. SEO Mash says:

    Definitely congrats on the 6,000. Can’t say as though I am a big believer in the program but I enjoy seeing your updates.

  6. HMTKSteve says:

    I signed up under you then I forgot my login and password.

    1. Ryan says:

      I’m pretty sure they have a lost password feature. 😆

  7. Ajith says:

    yours numbers are amazing. But honestly I dont find anything that tempts me to join AGLOCO

  8. Ajith says:

    And John how was your experince with author switching

  9. Paul says:

    Ajith, you aren’t tempted by money?

    1. Jeff says:

      Maybe he/she’s just skeptical about it haha

  10. This just in…I’ve signed up 0 people to AGLOCO, probably because most of my friends think it’s all a scam. Sign up if you feel sorry for me.

    1. Lorraine Mark says:

      I’ve signed up 70 in a month and a half by running an adwords campaine. Also found a new list builder to email to.

  11. Bashar says:

    In general, those easy making money programs are mostly spam, not all ofcourse. I have seen one pay as you surf but didn’t continue with it.

    I will have to see how this one goes. Most importantly, they have to support Firefox.

  12. Awesome!! 6000 signup all based on a too-be-announced project. But aren’t you celebrating all too early on a rumor for something thats barely been revealed. Without taking offense you seem to sound like those iPod chain letter/email salesman.

    I am sure my name is also somewhere within the sign ups to have taken the bait on AGOLOCO, but refrain on the marketing until I have personally tried the toolbar, thats just me, I guess you are different. Whats your take on the spyware angle / monitoring of websites that will go on when you surf with the toolbar?

    1. John Chow says:

      I talked to the founder about that. There is absolutely no spyware in the Viewbar. I’ve also had Ray Everett-Church made a comment on this issue: http://www.johnchow.com/comment-from-ray-everett-church/

  13. musicNmovies says:

    ALGOCO !
    nah not at all tempting, even the industry bgi player are staying away from it.

    Don’t know why John is so much attached with it.
    I think its not intellegence to stumble upon same stone twice.

    1. You do whatever the “big players” tell you to do?

      PS. John didn’t stumble upon a stone, he stumbled upon $25,000. That’s something I wouldn’t mind stumbling on twice.

      1. musicNmovies says:

        but everyone CANNOT BE John Chow !
        out of thousands of people who lost their time, money energy ONLY FEW got paid and company went bankrupt.

        Thats why I meant by stumbling on stone twice.

        1. John Chow says:

          I’m still waiting for an ex-Alladvantage person to come forward and tell me they lost money on it.

          I had a network of over 10,000. If only a few got paid as you claimed, then for sure, there’ll be screaming in my network about it since not everyone was like me.

          But not one complaint. Hmmmmm.

      2. musicNmovies says:

        Sorry missed ur first one…

        No we ATLEAST listen big players, thats why we come and read even John Chow’s blog.
        And if majority of them DISCARDS/REJECTS/DISAPPROVES something then definitely its always better not to bet upon it.

        But if you are one of them, who learns from their own MISTAKE, then there is nothing I have say. Have a nice EXPERIENCE !

        1. John Chow says:

          You’re going to be shock at how many “Big players” are in this. 😎

        2. It’s one thing to take a “big player’s” opinion and using it as a springboard for your own research, but it’s something entirely different to follow it blindly and accept it as truth.

  14. zaki says:

    Now, I definitely must join and actively involve in Agloco….I hope I’m not too late yet…

  15. Congratulations John! I truly believe you will be one of the very few people to make decent money through AGLOCO!

    I’m still stuck at 0 referrals…maybe because I haven’t joined and I keep blogging about how much I dislike AGLOCO! Haha!

    Have a great day!


    1. Aris says:

      Congratulation for the first Viewbar exclusive video, Kumiko. I bet your traffic will reach the stratosphere again. 😆

  16. Gdog says:

    My referrals are John’s referrals. That must be nice. 😎

    1. Michael Kwan says:

      My referrals are John’s as well, in a sense. 🙂 It would have been awesome if I was the person to refer John to AGLOCO and not the other way around :p

  17. Nomar says:

    Really good !!

  18. Steveyu85 says:

    congratulation… 😆

  19. Lucky Lily says:

    I’m not in Agloco too. Joining something before seeing it in action is really scary….

    however I might change my mind after reading your post john…thks for the insight..


    1. Allen.H says:

      I wouldn’t call it scary, rather a little risky if you spend as much time as John is instead of focusing on long term projects.


      1. John Chow says:

        Time? I wrote 16 posts about it. I say the total time commitment so far has been 16 hours and that’s being really generous. These posts don’t take an hour to do.

        16 hours for 6,000+ referrals. Not a bad return. 😈

    2. Michael Kwan says:

      I wouldn’t say that it’s scary, but if you wait too long, you will have a harder time building your network. After all, by that time, everyone will already have an account (whether it’s active or not is another matter).

  20. oscarsito says:

    Well there’s nothing to lose and a lot to gain so, Why not?

    But one would need to have tons of referrals to earn some decent cash.

  21. Remember that even if the average Joe has maybe 0 to 2 referrals, they still will appreciate making a small amount of money each month for doing nothing but turning on a Viewbar that does not disrupt their Internet experience.

    Don’t forget, we who religiously worship the likes of John Chow, Robert Scoble and other Net thundercrackers are in a teeny minority all over the world. Most people are grateful they learned just how to use email, and maybe perform a basic Google search. They don’t intend to make a career out of online moneymaking. For them, the concept of getting a little money just for signing up for AGLOCO is pretty nice – and it’s going to be the source of a lot of money for those of us who seek them out.

  22. Bryan Baker says:

    John…still hoping you’ll respond to the first comment I left you. Thanks.

    1. John Chow says:

      What comment? Where? ❓

  23. Jack says:

    Pat on the back for still having zero. 😳

    1. I’m right there with you!

  24. Bes Z says:

    Thanks for the update John. Kumiko’s [one of the commentors above] post on Agloco was an interesting piece that may make many people stay away from Agloco.

    I have to login and see how many referrals I have. I signed up under you around the first days you started, btw. 🙂

  25. Leftblank says:

    Very nice John, I’m still stuck on 0 referrers as well – sadly – I’m receiving a lot of cynicism around here, no one seems to believe you can make money blogging, and even less about making money surfing. But ah well 😉

  26. Jonix says:

    It’s indeed a great number! but let’s see if agloco will not be another “fiasco” like it’s “old brother” was.

    1. Jonix says:

      For people that don’t know who was the old brohter of agloco, the “old brother” was AllAdvantage, and only “half a dozen” people won very good money with it. The others only made 2 or 3 bucks.

  27. Chris says:

    I’ve got about 24 referrals. I bet less than 5 will install it so I don’t think I’ll be making much!

    (ref) on the other hand is making me more money than AdBrite on my site haha.

    1. Chris says:

      hmm, tried using the code from below the post and it doesn’t seem to work?

      Nevermind, it’s SlashMySearch and the link still work if you wanna sign up 😉

  28. hey john,

    ive been doing alright myself


    300 signups with only 10 direct referrals:)

    someone is really helping me out

  29. Kalle says:

    Wow, 6k refferals. That isn’t bad at all 😀

  30. Bob says:

    Some multilevel marketing plans are legitimate. However, others are illegal pyramid schemes. In pyramids, commissions are based on the number of distributors recruited.

  31. markus941 says:

    Congrats on being at the top of the MLM pyramid. However, I have to say my opinion of this blog has been taken down a few notches.

  32. Jeff says:

    Your 5,000 hit post was not too long ago.

  33. deejay says:

    congratulations john! by the way still too hard to understand how can we earn from agloco ,if,when the owner of agloco losses. business really is for earning and not for losses, can he afford to do it?

  34. AglocoNews says:


    I’m on 240.

  35. Well, I’m prepared to give it a shot. Hasn’t cost me anything. I doubt that I’ll even get into double figure referrals though so I’m guessing I’ll struggle to make $0.05 a month! 😛

  36. I just don’t see this paying out to but the very few, like John. So congrats to him, but I think it’ll go the way of the dinosaurs and AllAdvantage.

  37. Sabrina says:

    Well I definately wasn’t a large player with AllAdvantage but I made more than 2 or 3 bucks. I made over $500 and I didn’t have any referrals until 2 months before they went down. There is money to be made for basically doing what you already do. I just wish I could get more people to sign up.

  38. Mephala says:

    Hi John,

    I just signed up, rather inspired by your post.

    Yes, to make money, you have to be on top of the pyramid. Time to start climbing.


  39. Pankaj Oberoi says:

    Hi John,

    First of all congrats for the 6000 member mark.

    I indirectly joined under you, As the person who had introduced me is your direct and i am his, Though i joined on 08/Jan/07 but started working only from 14th of Feb. And i must tell you i am really happy, in a short span i have loads of members, i am currently sitting on 1950 members with 528 directs. Not even 15 complete days. I am on the top gun list too.

    Thanks to you, i was actually inspired by your blog and started it late, wish i would have read it in january itself.

    Pankaj Oberoi

  40. John congrats on your sign-ups! How long have you been blogging your site has an amazing # of readers!

    Do you offer any link exchanges? I would love it if we could trade! I’ll go ahead and add your site to my new blog on Agloco: http://paidbyinternet.blogspot.com

    Keep it up!


  41. DJ says:

    Congrats John, 6000 members, $7000+ a month in earnings WOW!!! Though you might want to know about this:

    In an effort to motivate the Agloco members without huge referral networks, I am starting the first ever Agloco referral contest. I will be giving away $100 cash plus 25% of my first check from Agloco, only to those members who ended February with less than 100 referrals in their network.

    For complete Eligibility, Prizes, How to Enter, and Rules

    please visit DJ’s Agloco Blog – Do You Agloco

    Any Feedback on the contest would be appreciated. Thanks

    1. Wow.. you are handing out an attractive carrot, but I wonder how you are going to work that out. I believe the screenshots can be manipulated as well, so you would have to be extra careful.

  42. RDK says:

    John I want you to know I’m working hard for you buddy. I signed up under Boogster who, I’m sure, signed up under you. As of today I have 160, 41 directs.

    I’ve put in more than 16 hours, thou 😆

    Enjoy the fruits of my labor and here’s hoping all my directs well get as many as I have!

    1. Jez says:

      Indeed, if they do youll be very happy!

  43. venu srinivasan says:

    6k!! wow, very well done john, i joined agloco a month back and have been watching your progress, hope i have 10% of ur success with agloco,

    i just have one question for u john, out of the 6k reffs u got how many do u think will download the viewbar??

    1. Interestingly, I guess it would be a matter of who or how many is going to stay long enough for the viewbar to come out. Agloco has been keeping people in suspense for quite a long while that some may have already lost interest, or even forget about the program.

  44. Hi I am from Germany and I´ve heard from AGLOCO from John.I promote AGLOCO since 2 weeks and I have 117 (47 direct/70 indirect) members. One of my problems is, I try to explain my members how they could promote AGLOCO effektively. And I think, maybe they try it, but it is not so easy for them. Next week I produce a video ( in german) and hope it could help my refferals.

    He DJ, I want to participate in your contest, but I had 102 referrals on 28.02.2007. Come on let me in. 🙂


    1. Jez says:

      Thats pretty good going

  45. Agloco says:

    Congrat John.

    Waiting for you 7000th agloco sign up blog.

  46. Jez says:

    You have built an impressive network there, will be interesting to see how much it earns, have you done any forecasts?

  47. InvestMe says:

    john your success in AGLOCO inspired me so much in joining the group. congratulations in your success. i’m counting on you.

  48. Greettt…going 😛

    Keep the good work going.
    Best of luck.

    to your success

  49. Jordan says:

    Agloco is a very unique concept, I have to give them that much. I am currently in the testing phase during this pre-launch period and have over 630 referral in my network.

    I have personally referred 20 and those 20 turned into over 600 so far.

    I teach a few very simple steps that show people how to do this themselves.

    Go to http://www.whyagloco.blogspot.com to check it out.

    I was able to use these simple methods to make over $1 Million in a few years…but of course those programs required upfront cost. Agloco doesn’t…its FREE…so we’ll see soon how much the members will get rewarded.

    I am hopeful 🙂

    1. Dude, is that whyagloco.com site legal? It looks like you’ve just copied the AGLOCO website and just changed the ‘join now’ button so that it uses your affiliate link!

      Looks very shady to me!!! 😐

  50. Jordan says:

    Hey John, I too am from Vancouver Canada! It’s good to see another successful internet marketer so close to home! Congrats on your Agloco growth!


  51. Adil says:

    Hi John,

    Congrats on reaching 6k.
    I joined agloco in Feb, but have only 1 referral.
    I am from India and it is difficult to convince people here. Hope 2 get some more this month.

    Best of luck.

  52. Tyler says:

    Hey J,

    Are those your cars….? Nice picture!
    Just wondering how you were able to get so many direct referals… is it your blog that people visit, or is it through chat rooms, or maybe your just really popular and have a lot of friends…

    I have a meager 11 direct referals and would like to expand on that….

    best of luck to you all!


  53. matt says:

    🙁 John I have a quick question if you dont mind… Right now i have 33 direct refs since i signed up on feb 24th but i only have 3 extended refs… Is this normal in the beginning for this many people not to get refs? Looking at your stats you had 139 directs since feb 1st and about 2000 extended refs thats about 14 people per ref, so shouldnt i have about 450 total refs right now?
