8,000 AGLOCO Sign Ups

Just seven days after posting about getting 7,000 AGLOCO Sign Ups, I have passed the 8,000 sign up mark. This is a 40% increase in sign up rate. I was averaging 100 new sign ups per day, but now I’m up to 140 per day. I expect to keep increasing the sign up rate as we get closer to the release of the Viewbar.


What I Did To Go From 7,000 To 8,000

Except for making a blog update at 7,000 sign ups, I did absolutely nothing! This is the beauty of system like AGLOCO. My network has grown beyond me. I cannot stop it even if I wanted to. I don’t have to do anything and the network is growing at a faster rate now than when I was “working it.” I can only imagine how much faster the network will grow once the Viewbar become available for download.

I stated in a past update that I was going to create a PPC landing page and spend $2,000 on promotions to sign up more people. I no longer feel a need for that. I have exceeded my goal for having 5,500 to 7,500 sign ups by Viewbar release time. I am now on cruise control. I’m just going to sit back and relax because my work is done!

    Wow John, at this rate you’ll be at 10,000 in no time!

    1. TJ says:

      And I can just imagine how much money those 8000 sign ups will make.

      1. I can’t imagine.. The numbers are too much for my brains to calculate! 8,000 is alot of referrals.

        1. Matthew says:

          I wonder how long the viewbar actually is away though… it seems to have been delayed a few times πŸ™‚ Hopefully it will be just around the corner.

          1. Jez says:

            A date was given on their blog, 18th April I think, there is a post on my blog about it if you want to track back to their site.

          2. Jonix says:

            Let’s see if they stick with that date…i doubt that…alot!

            If they are with adverisers problems like people are saying, i even doubt that they’ll last more than 3 or 4 months.

          3. The more I read about the View Bar, the less I like it…

          4. Jez says:

            I never liked the idea.

            I have to say Credit to JC for not modding anyone on this, though I dont suppose he’s bothered, it seems none can stop his Agloco rise! 😈 😈 😈

          5. Jez says:

            Hi Jonix,

            Theyve gone as far as to publish it, I doubt they would have done that if they werent planning to stick to it.

            Speaking of dates, check out the Agloco footer

            “Copyright Β© 2006 AGLOCOβ„’ Inc. All rights reserved.”

            Thats professionalism and attention to detail for you πŸ™‚ Obviously the owners of Agloco visit the site regularly 😳 😳 😳

          6. Jonix says:

            lol jez, indeed they are visiting the site every day 😈

          7. Erik says:

            They say late March, but I bet that it will be delayed into April or maybe even May.

          8. Gary Lee says:

            it’s getting to the point where I don’t think it’s ever coming . . .

        2. carl says:

          you said so!! I only got few but john’s 8000!! like whoa man!!

          1. Alex says:

            It’s a simple viral effect, if you managed to get a 1000 sign-ups in a week, I believe you’ll pass the 9000 mark in less than 6 days to come. The virus keeps spreading ❗

          2. Erik says:

            You have to pray you refer some people with alot of friends. Once you get your network out there, it could start growing exponentially if you get the right people.

          3. Gary Lee says:

            i’ll tell you a little secret . . . go find brand new bloggers on mybloglog πŸ™‚

        3. I just started with AGLOCO and I have 20 in my network already. I did sign up to John, so I’m giving him a little boost there. I heard about it from him first, so it was only fair to sign up under him.

          I have many evil AGLOCO schemes in mind to help me continue increasing my network (and therefor, John’s network).

          Thank you,

    2. Erik says:

      Imagine the income that could be gained through that. If this AGLOCO is going to be what we think it will be, then John could be a very rich man. I only know of one person with higher people than him, some guy with 21,000.

      1. HMTKSteve says:

        But there is no money until the company goes public with its stock.

        1. Marc says:

          Yeah and I’ve had my eggs in that basket before. Your hard work turns into a lottery ticket. If they make it, you win, if they don’t you lose. The odds are about the same as a lottery too.

  2. David says:

    It sure will be nice for you when they release the viewbar. Your monthly income from the internet will increase quite a bit, I imagine.

    1. Matthew says:

      it will be interesting to add that into the mix

    2. Has Agloco revealed the expected amounts an average user will make? This could be all a lot of hype for $0.25/month for all I’ve heard.

    3. HMTKSteve says:

      No, no income right away. You earn shares in the company.

      1. You’re kidding, right??

        1. Marc says:

          Nope, that’s the deal from what I’ve been hearing.

  3. Jon Lee says:

    By the way, I think that referral link is dynamic and changes for everyone…

    1. Erik says:

      Everyone’s referral link is unique. Otherwise, it would be more of a communal network instead of your personal network.

      1. Gary Lee says:

        you have to know who you’re asking to join your network and also how you’re helping them succeed. Remember, when you help them, you help yourself! You can’t just ask them to sign up and then that’s it

  4. Justin Slife says:

    Is anybody else getting any signups? ❓

    1. Hi, Justin. I sure am. ❗ I decided at the beginning of February to dedicate $1,000 to my Agloco campaign. I had zero signups. Today I have 463 direct signups and 714 total in my network (you can see these numbers from the AGLOCO Top Gun recruiters list). Using PPC, I’ve paid about $2.48 per direct signup (I’ve had 2 million impressions and 8,796 clicks.) I’m just a little over the $1,000 goal and, with the recent announcement of the delay in the Viewbar, I’ve decided to spend another $500 through March.

      I will soon catch John on direct signups. Then I hope those in my network will start producing like John’s network has — lucky, evil mogul!

      1. John Chow says:

        They will. It took a while before my extended sign ups beat my directs.

      2. Kumiko says:

        And people said you couldn’t lose money on AGLOCO! πŸ™„ For your sake, I hope AGLOCO is a success!!


      3. Jez says:

        Wow $1500, thats putting your money where your mouth is, I respect that and you get it back ❗

      4. Geez man. I hope you make it back before it goes under like last time.

        1. Erik says:

          It does look like they are taking a much more serious and knowledgeable approach to it this time around.

          1. Marc says:

            I agree. While I’m still not personally convinced, I am pleased to see that they’re coming to the table much more prepared this time around. They learned a lot of hard lessons last time around. The key word there is “learned”. I applaud their effort.

      5. Justin Slife says:

        Interesting…$1500. Maybe I’m thinking wrong. I’ve always said that you have to spend money to make money.

        I’ll give it a small shot first…$200. If I can get at least one conversion for every $3, I spend more.

        Thanks for the info.

      6. Turk says:

        Congrats to you Jacin and of course to the blog owner John πŸ˜› you are the man!

  5. Jimi says:

    I’m not having as much success as I thought I would. I created a site about 3 days ago just to take advantage of it and since I had no incoming links I decided to buy 30 from CreamAid in hopes that I could get a few sign ups that way. Last I looked I had 20 of the posts completed and got about a dozen sign ups from it, but that isn’t exactly what I call successful for that campaign. I am being slow about approving the rest of the posts so I think I’ll just leave it up there for a while.

    1. Jez says:

      Everyone is talking about sign ups sign ups sign ups…..

      I have yet to hear from someone saying

      “I cant wait to waste my day clicking away on those spammy adds”

      and thats important, because its those guys that prop up the whole scheme.

      1. HMTKSteve says:

        That is the crutch of the matter.

        If, after the first month, the bottom tier sees the toolbar as not being worth their time they will drop it. On and on up the ladder it will go.

        1. Jonix says:

          I agree, but i believe, that they are counting with that. There is allways a margin for the quiters. Let’s see what would be the percentage.

        2. Yep. Or “on up the pyramid”…

          1. Jez says:

            Does that make JC the Pharaoh :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

          2. Jonix says:

            Something like that, yes :mrgreen:

          3. HMTKSteve says:

            All bow down for the might god-king John Chow!!!

          4. Alex says:

            Good thing that slavery is illegal these days, John would put us in chains πŸ‘Ώ

          5. RDK says:

            the thing that sloves this problem is that in order to “collect” your earnings (shares/cash) you only get credited the amount of time form each referral that yhou yourself sued the viewbar. Therefore is you only use 2 hours and a referral of yours used 5 hours, you only get credit for 2 hours from that refferal. This will push most people to use there 5 hours in hopes those below will do the same.

  6. Matthew says:

    I’ll definitely be interested on the profit etc when this viewbar is actually released.

    1. Definitely so. Perhaps you can see John adding in another few columns for his calculation of affiliate earnings for Agloco.

    2. carl says:

      well i hope it’ll be launch sooner, I am very excited about it

  7. Aris says:

    Haven’t checked mine yet but I think I’m 8024 short. πŸ™‚

    1. David says:

      hah!! I win!! I’m only 8023 short πŸ˜›

    2. Yeah me too, although I haven’t really been pushing it either. I’m not a fan of toolbars in general…

      1. Erik says:

        Yeah, the downside is they will be showing ads on it and stuff. Could get very annoying if the money isn’t coming in as expected.

  8. There is no stopping you. They should make you the AGLOCO spokesperson and dress you in a superman outfit with an A on the chest.

    1. Alex says:

      Yeah, and you should name your next kid Agloco :mrgreen:

  9. Scot says:

    I remember running across a gentleman with 20k-30k agloco sign-ups. Jesus H. Christ, I can only imagine the income.

    1. I though 8k was a lot! How hard do you have to be pushing this to get over 20k!!

  10. Is this ViewBar thing going to be Mac compatible? I’ve been thinking of trying this thing out, but if it’s just going to be some Windows-only nonsense, I won’t bother.

    1. HMTKSteve says:

      Would a mac user use this toolbar?

      1. Marc says:

        Agreed, I think the margin of users outside the IE/Windows world is going to be slim. That being said, there’s a lot of people in the IE/Windows piece of the pie. They can still succeed, especially early on. So long as they hold water for a few months once they release, they’ll have time to develop and broaden into the fringe markets.

  11. That’s definitely alot! I guess that takes you to the top 0.001%, and have a chance at toppling the top person with the most affiliates.

  12. Anyone have any idea when the elusive viewbar will be replaced?

    1. Jonix says:

      I think April, i doubt they’ll send it to public this month.

      1. Alex says:

        It should be out by April 15. as I recall

  13. IndoDX says:

    This really Huge Members, John Chow….
    Congrats to you πŸ˜‰

  14. HMTKSteve says:

    I just checked mine a few days ago (I never pushed it) and found I had about twenty sign ups under me!

    I must have good SEO or something?

  15. Jonix says:

    Let’s see how 7,500+ will produce. For sure will give you another extra income with at least 4 numbers!

    1. Jez says:

      Yes John will definitely get a good return on the time he has invested, he has made a real success of building his network…

      1. Jonix says:

        Indeed Jez. John’s network is superb.

        But like i said to you in the other day, i like you webdesign blog πŸ˜‰ and you’ve the “potential”, the “force”.

  16. Chris says:

    Any word on when the toolbar is likely to make an appearance?

    I had a commenter on my blog state that she had actually spoken to some advertisers who had been approached by Agloco, and they’re having trouble getting enough advertising money in – potential advertisers just don’t feel they’re going to get VFM from running ads on a toolbar that’s probably going to be ignored.

    Once the venture capital runs out, what then? Crash & Burn? I guess the people with big networks at startup will suck the VC money out & run (and good luck to them) while Agloco goes into a death spiral. All sounds familiar somehow….

    1. “All sounds familiar somehow….”

      Yes, I agree. Back before the Dot Com bust, there was at least one ISP which offered free internet access from anywhere in the nation, but you had to use their software which displayed an advertisement on your screen the whole time. Agloco is basically the same thing, except instead of internet service, they’re apparently offering cash… clearly the ISP idea didn’t catch on, so I don’t see why Agloco can do any better. Profit from Agloco while you can; call me skeptical, but to expect anything long-term from it is presumptuous at this point.

      1. HMTKSteve says:

        I think that was NetZero. They are still around.

    2. gitesh says:

      well i talket about this in my past comment and john u didnt commented.i dont think the agloco folks will have enough advertisers with them to compete with growing number of members.

    3. Jez says:

      I agree with all this stuff and wrote an article on it a while back.

      The whole pyramid depends on plebs at the bottom of the pile clicking away for peanuts. Once all the stocks gone there is little incentive to do this, and like you I think it will crash and burn.

      Pyramid schemes never have and never will be a sustainable business model. They only work during the “roll out” when people make from referrals. Once the scheme reaches its full potential, and there is no scope for further expansion (and profit) they collapse.

      You could argue that there are X billion internet users and the scope is huge…. but a very high proportion of them wouldnt touch this toolbar with a barge pole, and the remainder probably wont be bothered using it.

      Who wants to click away at adds for a few crumbs, and what kind of advertisers are going to be interested in these kind of clicks (where users are offered an incentive as opposed to clicking because they have genuine interest)?

      Conversion rates on this kind of advertising are very poor. There will be some takers… Spammers survive on a conversion rate of something like 1 in a million.

      But think what low conversion rates would mean in terms of PPC / kickback for users, and the effect that will have on the scheme as a whole.

      1. It ain’t clicking! AGLOCO members’ earnings are not affected one bit whether they never click on the ads or click thousands of times! Check the official site!

        7 Reasons AGLOCO won’t fail

        1. Chris says:

          No, but as was pointed out to me, if the users don’t click on the ads, advertisers won’t want to pay money to put them there….

    4. Jonix says:

      It’s the death before born? Who knows…but the future doesn’t seem good (AGAIN!)

    5. carl says:

      the root of all evil is earning money!!! 😈 money = evil hahaha

  17. carl says:

    hi john!

    I just wan’t to congratulate you!! nice! 8000.. that’s big bucks man!!

  18. Very impressive John. Can’t wait to see how many more join the train when the viewbar is finally released.

    1. Jez says:

      Yeah whatever my opinions on the product, youve got to hand it to JC, he’s a real master when it come to this kind of stuff…

    2. Jane May says:

      I agree. congrats John, this will be a huge income revenue for you!

  19. Sean says:

    Nice! I thnk I’ve got….zero? lol. Yep…it’s zero.

  20. Lim says:

    I joined under johnchow few days ago, still zero referral. I have no idea how much will JohnChow earn if the network stop at this moment, let say 8000. Where can I evaluate the earning potential? I know algoco site is giving calculator on shares earned per month but have no idea about it’s share value.

    1. I guess they will have more explanation at hand when they actually start releasing the program from ‘Beta’.

    2. Erik says:

      You have to refer the people. Can’t have Chow do that for ya.

    3. Jane May says:

      We joined under Chow his very first post…I think our code starts with BBBB..

  21. Gdog says:

    I don’t understand why the heck they haven’t released the viewbar yet. It would be so much easier to sign people up when the final product has been tested and true.

    1. Erik says:

      Building buzz! πŸ˜† πŸ˜›

  22. Erik says:

    Now you just gotta get all those people to download it once it comes out.

    1. HMTKSteve says:

      Yep. Then, after they download it will they keep it?

      1. Jane May says:

        I think that’s the question everyone is asking? How many are going to use it?

  23. John says:

    Off Topic. This may be old news, but has anyone else seen the new google logo on their adsense ads. This is the first time I have seen it.

  24. I can testify to that viral effect. I had 1000 referrals on March 1st, 2000 on March 15th, and today is March 16th and I’m already at 2108. I only have 63 directs. I attribute my success to my early penetration of the Brazilian market (I started a Portuguese AGLOCO blog in early January when there was literally nothing out there in Portuguese) and the fact that my blogs have more than just 3 or 4 general posts on AGLOCO. Members who sign up with me will know the history of the company, what AllAdvantage was (and what John Chow did there), they can find my email if they have any questions, and they come away stronger and more confident AGLOCO recruiters as a result who are more likely to go get other members. After the English-speaking world and China, Brazil probably has the highest AGLOCO representation as a result, because several of the heavy hitters saw my site early on and signed up there. I think if John Chow refuses to use his mighty blog machine any longer other than for passive referrals, I may be able to catch him…we’ll see.

    By the way: the first few recruits did not make my numbers jump. I too had more direct members than extended until about 20 days into it, when one guy from Canada joined over an email chat and got his mojo working. Then things began to change.

    Good luck to everyone!

  25. Jon says:

    Hey John,
    I’ve got a landing page you can use…
    Yes I am in your Agloco front line.

  26. Jane May says:

    We finally began spreading the word and have 12 total referals. Not bad for not really advertising…but really bad considering John.

  27. Even Agloco is promoting johnchow…

    P.S. For those of you wishing to help build the AGLOCO network, here are notes from a couple of successful AGLOCO recruiters:
    http://www.johnchow.com/category/agloco (Popular blogger who has a section about AGLOCO)

    1. carl says:

      Yea I saw john’s link when i signed up! heheh

  28. Everton says:

    Do you really AGLOCO are going to come through with the green? They must have a huge ‘userbase’ by now

  29. happysurfer says:

    Amazing! Congrats! I just hit 30 and I’m like “Wow!!” Any chance of transferring some over? I wish!!

    My first visit here, John. Awesome blog you’ve got and thanks for sharing what you are sharing even though I may not understand all of it.

  30. happysurfer says:

    I left a comment here earlier but it’s not showing. I’m wondering if comments are being moderated? Anyway, I just wrote to congratulate you on your network growth. Awesome!

  31. Agloco says:

    Congrat John. You are growth very fast.

  32. Agloco says:

    Great growth John, keep it up!


  33. matt says:

    quick question….. I have about 60 direct refs and only 4 extended refs.. How long till i start getting more extended refs?…and i started this on Feb 24th

    1. Hey Matt, I started on Feb 1st and didn’t see any extended referrals for about a month. I’m currently at 484 direct and 260 extended… but my extended network is starting to grow faster and faster.

      John is lucky because his readership is the kind of people who not only sign up but also go and get lots more.

      Keep on keeping on. Soon, you’ll find someone like me who goes crazy and makes your extended network grow like crazy. It only takes a few but it is a numbers game.

  34. Umut says:

    Congratulations John.

    You should be the number 1 in AGLOCO. Go on promting Agloco.

  35. My Direct-to-Extended ratio is now 1-6. Direct 229 and Extended 1459, so all my hard work in the beginning stages, is really starting to pay back πŸ˜€

  36. Jonathan G. says:

    Man, your good, 8000 signups….

  37. what a great figure john congrats

  38. Agloco says:

    Great job John…you’re flying now!


  39. Realist says:

    I don’t believe in Agloco. They keep delaying the viewbar, it will be the biggest scam ever!!
    Lots of people will be so angry muhahaha >:)

  40. John Wells says:

    Hey! saw your site from Top Guns. I’m pretty excited that the days is comming near. Great stats by the way. I was a late bloomer started in late Feb but mine are nothing come paired to yours. How did you get so many??? When you first started How long did it take for your extended referrals to pass up your directs? Well Come check out my site and maybe we can share some tips.

  41. Jeff says:

    I see your now at 9,000 signups! Great work!!
