7,000 AGLOCO Sign Ups

Today I received the 100 day report to members email from AGLOCO. Yes, It’s been 100 days already. Where has the time gone? The 100th day of AGLOCO also marks the day I went pass 7,000 AGLOCO referrals. I’m at 7,050 referrals as I write this post.


If you haven’t received the 100 day report yet, you should be getting it in the next day or two. The report states AGLOCO has over 50,000 successful recruiters, which is company spin for saying 50,000+ of you have signed up at least one other person. The report also features a link to myself and RZ McCall as places to visit for more AGLOCO information. I don’t find this too surprising since McCall and I are like the AGLOCO poster boys. The extra traffic AGLOCO is sending this blog is considerable.

Can’t Stop It Even If I Wanted To

I have built my AGLOCO network to the point where it cannot be stop even if I wanted to (which I don’t). Right now, I don’t have to do anything with it and the network will continue to grow. That is the beauty of the AGLOCO setup. I only have to do the work once and I could reap rewards from it for a long time to come. Passive income is the best type of income.

Who’s Pyramid Are You In?

I’ve been hearing a lot of talk about AGLOCO being a pyramid scheme and I just have to laugh. It is very clear to me that most people do not know the definition of a pyramid scheme. Actually, it doesn’t matter if they know or not because most are ignorant of the fact that they are already in one.

Ask the average person the street what a pyramid scheme is and the most common response you’ll get is, “The person at the top makes money off the people at the bottom, the people at the bottom makes very little and can never make more than the person at the top.”

Sounds like a very educated response, doesn’t it? If that had been your answer then my question to you would be, “Why don’t you explain to me the organizational structure of the place you work at?”

Let’s see, the guy at the top makes money off the people at the bottom – true. The people at the bottom makes very little – also true. The people at the bottom can never make more than the person at the top – true again.

Another reply people give for the definition of a pyramid scheme is you have to pay to get in. How does this relate to a job? Well, did you have to pay to get that programming job at Google or was your college education free?

Things became really clear when you can see the big picture.

If anything, AGLOCO is the complete opposite of a pyramid scheme. It’s completely free to join and you can beat the guy at the top if you want to. I beat the person who signed me up within days of joining and I have no doubt that someone in my network will beat me. That someone could be you.

    People may jump into conclusion easily even if they don’t know anything about what you’re doing. And if you happen to make money with what you’re doing, they will say, you are LUCKY! πŸ™ So far only one friend signed up but it’s okay. Most of the people I talked or sent the information to need to come here to listen to your lecture. πŸ˜†

      JOHN —

      I like these posts. But what I like EVEN MORE is seeing how many people are viewing these posts (beside the post tag).

      Is there an up-to-date page that you have where you talk about the plugins you added, and where to download these plugins?


      1. John Chow says:

        All the plugins are listed under the WordPress category. http://www.johnchow.com/category/wordpress/

    2. broc says:

      I feel what Aris is saying.
      Ive had girlfriends tell me that I didnt know what I was talking about and that I’ll be lucky if I make any money with this.
      These girls are supposed to eat up every word I tell them, not warn me about danger.

      That just shows you how much the media can meld someones mind.

      1. Jez says:

        There is no danger of losing anything other than your time, if you like the product go for it, personally I think it sucks… but I seem to be a minority

    3. Andrew Chen says:

      I am just wondering when AGLOCO can start generating cash. Seems to me it has been a long while about the number of sign ups

      1. Jez says:

        I dont know but I would imagine they are offsetting their risk, if they dont get enough sign ups they wont pay for the software development,

      2. Doug Karr says:

        I still don’t get it, either. I’ve been wrong on these before… but I’m just not set on using good blogging time to pushing something that doesn’t appear to make any financial or business sense. (Sorry, John).

        1. jez says:

          It makes sense to a point, you get a share of income from pay per click adds, but, you have to do a lot of work up front for these guys with not guarantee, and I am not convinced advertisers will be interested in this kind of marketing, other than other sites offering get rich quick schemes….

  2. Justin Slife says:

    I love the positive energy from your blog, John. I only have 2 people signed up under me, but I will continue to try.

  3. Gary Lee says:

    John . . . i’m at like 380-ish right now . . i swear i thought i would have caught you by now, but oh well! I really can’t wait until the passive income starts rolling in!

    1. You know what Gary? That has to be 20x that of yours. And if anything goes by, John has the potential to earn roughly that amount more than you too. πŸ™‚

      1. Gary Lee says:

        i know, huh? but John was one of the first to stick his head out for Agloco, so I guess he deserves a little bit more money πŸ˜‰

  4. Glenn Wolsey says:

    Just a quick question, how exactly do I make money from this, and how can I track the amount? I am trying to find a very simple explanation on how it works but cant..

    By the way, I signed up using your referral ID John.

  5. Kenny says:

    These people that think its another pyramid scheme will change their tune very quickly as soon as they start seeing other people reap the rewards.

    1. Jez says:

      No they wont, there are always people that make money from these schemes, otherwise they wouldnt exists. The problem people have with it is the way that money gets distributed

  6. Ed Lau says:

    It technically IS a pyramid scheme simply because of the…shape…of the network but it isn’t the “bad” kind of pyramid scheme since you pay absolutely nothing to join. Remember that all the stupid pyramid schemes where people get ripped off and lose all their money usually require some kind of membership fee or require you to purchase all sorts of literature in order to join.

    AGLOCO doesn’t require any of that.

    1. “… which people are recruited to make payments to others above them in a hierarchy while expecting to receive payments from people recruited below them.”

      Yea, since it does not require one to pay to join, no one is ‘harmed’ in anyway yet.

      1. Jez says:

        “no one is β€˜harmed’ in anyway yet”

        Not harmed, bedazzled and exploited. People are putting a lot of time into this and no one has any idea what it will earn, how many advertisers are signed up, when the toolbar will be ready.

        You may yet see Agloco bomb out of this and just try to sell the network on.

    2. Raghu CS says:

      Two differences that I see are,

      1. You don’t pay to get in
      2. You get paid for something you would anyway to if or not you are on the AGLOCO network

      1. The next thing you would wonder is HOW would they do it. From the way it looks (with so many people in it), it looks like they will make a loss before they even started!

      2. Jez says:

        “You get paid for something you would anyway to if or not you are on the AGLOCO network”

        Which is what, install some crapware on your PC that spams you as you try and do your work???

    3. Jez says:

      “It technically IS a pyramid scheme simply because of the…shape…of the network but it isn’t the β€œbad” kind of pyramid scheme since you pay absolutely nothing to join”

      No, you just work for them for free while they decide if and when to invest in the product, why is the toolbar not ready???

  7. Azeem says:

    Pyramids are here to stay .Ask Egyptians.

    1. Raghu CS says:

      Hmm… interesting point !

  8. Matthew says:

    I have started to add agloco banners to my blog but it may be a little late to get a massive amount of referrals

    1. Kenny says:

      Its never too late πŸ™‚ You just need to refer the right person and let them do all your work.

    2. Gary Lee says:

      It’s never too late. I help my network with updates and tips and just recently just got an email from a friend in Germany who’s telling me how fast his network is growing. Brick by Brick – that’s how the egyptians made their pyrimads and how Rome was created and how the Great Wall of China was built. Let me know if you need help.

    3. You wouldn’t lose out if you put in more effort and do your homework well.

      1. Matthew says:

        thanks guys, yeah figured Id throw that on there, but its the same with mylot, most bloggers seem to know about it and use it already

  9. Nomar says:

    7,000 thats alot man !! I wonde rhow much you will earn in the first month

  10. geldseiten says:

    Hi John

    I have about 300 referrals by now. Since I have signed up under you, most of this 300 are part of your 7000 referrals. You can see my stats here:

    1. geldseiten says:

      Second try with the link:


      BTW, why there is no preview-function for comments ❓

  11. Erik says:

    Nice John! Now you just have to hope most of those 7,000 people get around to installing the Viewbar once it comes out.

    1. Raghu CS says:

      That has been my biggest problem this far. I have to first get people to jump on to the network. When the ViewBar is out for me its not like John who has his high readership web for me to pass on the information to have people install the ViewBar.

  12. Michael says:

    Thats cool and all, but 7000 signups = $0. Granted you had to do little work to get those signups.

    When they start to pay and you post a sna of your first chen, then I will be impressed.


    1. What is amazing is when the rollout of checks begin. Everyone will be ‘digg’ing their eyes inside out in amazement.

      1. Jez says:

        At the moment its all hype and little substance, a lot of names on lists and little else.

        It may work, it may not, only time will tell

    2. Jez says:

      Yeah it will be interesting to see, sure Ill get a few “told you so’s” if it earns…

  13. Michael says:

    Can’t type today.

    That should be Scan of Check. lol

      Yup if it does work john will be even more loaded πŸ˜›

  16. Wow 700! Like the reviews that you are receiving daily, it is a endless flow that can’t stop. *amazed. 😯

  17. Chris says:

    You’re going to make hell of a lot from this if Agloco all goes to plan.

    I’m at 27 I think and I expect most of those wont use it / forget about it so I hardly see myself making anything worthwhile out of it πŸ™

    Bring on agloco 2 so I can join from the start! 😈

  18. Dan says:

    Congrats John.

    One think I don’t understand though – so pyramid scheme is not a pyramid scheme if it does not cost any money to join? What about payments in form of information ie. you browsing habbits, sites visited, ads clicked etc? Isn’t information a valuable commodity these days?

    I also think that pyramid scheme as such would be immoral and/or illegal if it was not possible for every participant to make his profits (eg. “infinite pyramid”).
    Since AGLOCO promises to somehow pay everyone who joins up (and uses their Viewbar) technically, imho, everything is ok. But, as there is no firm proof as yet, the crucial word here is “promises”.


    1. Well, that depends how much this kind of personnel information people place their value on. I don’t see no harm in letting others know what I like, or where I go online. It is not as if you are giving away more private information like your passwords etc.

      AGLOCO has not talked anything about selling ‘personnel information’ as yet.

  19. dan1el says:

    I wish I had referrals like John does. My guys are so lazy. I’ve got twice as many direct referrals as I do extended. I can’t figure it out.

    1. Thats just the same as me, its luck of the draw I guess, but it does have something to do with the fact that John gives advice on his blog about how to get referrals, which presumuably his referrals make good use of.

    2. Dave Starr says:

      This is one of the great lessons one can learn from programs like this. Some may know I have written posts that I’m not an AGLOCO enthusiast. I’ve even written posts that disagree with the sign up craze and John has responded to state his viewpoint.

      Know what? I never called him names, demeaned him personally and he has always been a gentleman in his responses to me.

      I read John every day and have learned a _bunch_ from him already, regardless of our opposing AGLOCO positions.

      When you sign people up and they become “Your Guys”, in any membership oriented venture one hopes that at least part of your reason is to help, enthuse and guide them to make money and be happy with the choices they made.

      You might logically assume the at least some of “Your Guys” read this blog, since they signed up and it’s a bit of a hot bed for discussion. So tell me how you think one of “Your Guys” would feel when they see you telling the world how “Lazy” they are? Think they will be inspired to work the program harder and gain more sign ups for themselves and others?

      In the military when “the guys” don’t perform the commander gets fired. When speaking publicly about “your guys” it might be valuable to reflect upon how your words sound to those you are depending upon to help you move forward.

      Just a leadership thought, feel free to disregard or disagree.

  20. Ryan says:

    With that many indirects you’ve got not choice but to grow the network… you couldn’t pay people to stop. πŸ˜†

  21. That’s insane John, your nuts… AND EVIL! πŸ’‘

  22. Raghu CS says:

    Cool job John – as you say all you can do is to post a note on your blog once in a while and simply hope more new readers who have not yet heard about AGLOCO jump in !

  23. Kenny says:

    I’d be very interested once the viewbar is released to see how fast John’s numbers will climb. It will be a lot easier to refer people once there is actually a product out there.

    1. I agree.. What we have seen so far is all hype. What we need and want are the real action and fun to start!

    2. Jez says:

      Ill be interested to see if the viewbar can be sniffed / blocked.

      HTMK steve has already pointed out that these viewbars will take advertising revenue away from websites / blogs so its not good news for bloggers

  24. Jon says:

    Ok John,
    You have another. I’m number BBCJ9302

  25. will says:

    JOHN, your comment on pyramid setups is fundamentally flawed. YOU seem the uneducated one in this situation. OF COURSE all business models are setup as pyramid, otherwise where is the leadership and the workforce. The thing you fail to see in your self-righteous little world, is that a pyramid “scheme” requires a continuous stream of new members (or new lemmings to add to the bottom of the pyramid). Once that inflow of bottom dwellers stops, so does the company. Does that apply to a corporate environment? If I stop hiring employees because I have a sufficient workforce for my current and projected contracts, will my company stop making money? Look out the window into the real world JOHN!

    1. John Chow says:

      I guess “retiring” employees don’t need to be replaced huh? You think too small. Increase the work force to Walmart level and lets see if the company can operate with a constant inflow of new lemmings.

      To answer your question, the answer is yes, what you say does apply to the corporate environment. Just ask the VP of Human Resources at any fortune 500 company.

    2. Dan says:

      I think i understand what Will means and I agree with his point that
      “… a pyramid β€œscheme” requires a continuous stream of new members (or new lemmings to add to the bottom of the pyramid)”
      but this is valid for pyramids which need new members to bring in cash (or whatever) in order to operate (ie. pass it up to more senior member).
      Imho not the case of AGLOCO! AGLCO does not need the money from new contiunous stream of members neither it needs any new members to operate (of course since greed is good they will try to sign up everyone:)) because their income will be (so they promise) derived from advertisers.

      1. Jez says:

        “AGLCO does not need the money from new contiunous stream of members”

        No its the network builders that need that, assuming Agloco can retain users they could quite happily plod along.

        The question is whether they can retain the lemmings at the bottom with the scraps from the table.

        If the bottom lemmings leave, then the corpral lemming is living on scraps, if corporal lemming leaves then sergant is on scraps and so the network could just collapse from the bottom up.

  26. Anna says:

    Wow, 7000 in your network! That’s awesome. How much money have you made from it so far? 😯

    1. John Chow says:

      Zero. But then again, it hasn’t started. We’re in the pre-launch stage.

  27. interesting point John

  28. AglocoNews says:

    I’m going to try and the beat the person who signed me up. (Hint it’s you)

  30. Barbara Phillips says:

    Good work in your referals. Where did you get them all? Were they all from your blog? I would like to know so I can try to get some more, I only have 2 directs and 12 indirect referals.


  31. Jonix says:

    wooow, 7.050, that’s a really superb number! That will for sure generate a great income. Anyone know when agloco will go out finally to the public?

  32. Bryan says:

    Jonix! Long time no see. Agloco will release the Viewbar this March…long wait for those who’ve been recruiting since January.

  33. Bryan says:

    The Viewbar is released in March.

  34. Agloco says:

    Congrat on your 7000 members.

  35. LGR says:

    I have to disagree with you about your definition of a pyramid scheme. While your definition might be what people think of most it is slightly inaccurate. Even according to Wikipedia a pyramid scheme is: “a non-sustainable business model that involves the exchange of money primarily for enrolling other people into the scheme, usually without any product or service being delivered.”

    Does AGLOCO have a product or service? At this point no. They keep saying they do but when?

    Is the point of joining AGLOCO to recruit new members? Most certainly yes.

    The only thing they have not asked for is money from the members. Perhaps that will be next.

    1. Till that happens, it only remains partially a pyramid scheme, but not quite yet.

  36. Njung'e says:

    I joined in Joined just before x-mas and until Feb 18 only had 1 refferal.I posted a message in a board and the rest is history.Of course, i will not get to John but standing 88 by 310 isn’t bad and the number is swelling fairly well.Oh well, am doing it from kenya,some 500 km North West of Nairobi.Agloco is that famous.

  37. venu srinivasan says:

    hey guys,
    have all of u been getting mails from agloco about the updates??, cause i havnt got any πŸ™ , john has said tht they have sent out a mail to the members now, how come i dint get it!!??

  38. Lavender says:

    I do a blog about Joost and i have also the Loco posts on it

    but i didnt get any I say any referals πŸ™‚
    too bad.

  39. The guys that started out in november 2006 were lucky, because the entire market was still entirely available.

    I started end of January, two months to late. However, I still managed to get quite a bit of referrals.

  40. Hi John. I just read your “Who is John Chow” page – too funny! πŸ˜†

    I found your blog while Googling Agloco, but I plan on revisiting it to read more of your posts.

    I agree with your take on the whole “pyramid scheme” label. It seems like any opportunity to make extra money is slapped with that label.

    Perhaps there should be a “.org” where people can get real, unbiased answers on an opportunity… Sort of like the BBB.

    Just a thought.

    what do you think john.does agloco have enough advertisers with them.any inside news.i think the viewbar is delayed just because they are not getting enough advertisers.And i dont think it will be easy for them to do so in future as the members are growing enormously.we would like to know ur views on this .and one post on it if you have time.

    I dont have a mailing list/website/blog or anything like that.
