9,000 AGLOCO Sign Ups

Today I received about five IM messages with a link to a fairly negative AGLOCO article that made the front page of Digg. That reminded me that I should check my stats. Good thing I did because I hit another milestone by crossing over the 9,000 sign up mark.

It’s All About Attitude

Whether an AGLOCO article is positive or negative, it doesn’t matter to me. The only thing that matters is what I think. If you let your belief get influenced or affected by every Tom, Dick and Harry that cried, “The sky is falling!” you’ll never accomplish anything in life.

You have a dream to make money online. Statistically speaking, your chances are very slim. Oh sure, you’ll hear stories of some guy going from zero to $7,000 a month in six months, but he’s one out of 60+ million blogs. You think you can do the same thing? Actually, you can if you want it badly enough.

Success Has Nothing To Do With Facts And Everything To Do With Attitude

Looking at the facts, one would question why anyone would try their hand at making money on the Internet. It’s fair to say 99.9% of all the blog owners can’t make more than $100 a month. However, there’s still that 0.1% who make big money. When I told someone this many years ago, his replied was, “You got some attitude to think you can part of that 0.1%.” That’s right, I do.

Your attitude in handling negative situations will determine whether you became a success or another statistic. The world is filled with naysayers. Are you going to listen to them are you going to take your destiny into your own hands decide your own future? There are three groups of people in this world: those who make things happen, those who watch things happen and those who wonder what happen. Which group do you want to be in?

    Congrats John…wonder how long it will be before you hit 10 000 πŸ™‚

    1. John Chow says:

      I’ll be there in a week.

      1. Nomar says:

        Very nice John,

        According to what you are saying, I am in the 0,01 % of bloggers 😎

        I tripled 100 already πŸ˜†

        1. I think that “negative” AGLOCO guy just wanted to get some traffic to his site.

          His entire article is off base as he was ASSuming that AGLOCO was going to issue shares in a US market.

          He’s also skeptical of where the money will come from. Looks like he conveniently ignored the billion dollar internet advertising.

          Thanks,

            I agree, this kind of publicity brings traffic to is site. But agloco is taking too much time to go online, that’s not normal…

            By the way, in this post john is forgeting something even more important, which is LUCK. Without luck you can have all the knowledge in the world, but that will not mean that you will succeed. And of course some money, withou initial money, nothing can be made.

          2. John Chow says:

            You make your own luck.

            “The harder I work, the luckier I get.”

          3. Alex says:

            I predicted you’ll go over 9,000 at least 3 days earlier that today. I think you’ll cross 10,000 before next thursday.

          4. Jonix says:

            Many times it’s not like that john. Unfortunally there’re many people who work very hard and don’t neither luck and success.
            Your are a very experienced person, you must agree that this is true, has i also agree, that without hard work and focus, nothing can be accomplished. But luck is a key factor, has hard work and focus is.

      2. Hey John – how does a blogger extraordinaire like yourself not have a Wikipedia entry? Is this something you’d like your community to write on your behalf or are you like me and would rather write one yourself? http://www.markrobinson.ca/2007/03/wikipedia-entry-for-mark-robinson/

        1. Dave says:

          John’s not on wikipedia?? Well it’s street cred just went out the window πŸ™‚

          1. Stephen Fung is on there!

        2. John Chow says:

          Feel free to write one. πŸ™‚ It’ll be interesting to read.

          1. I’ll get you started then open it up to your readers to muck with it as they see fit. Watch out for that one guy that’s obsessed with the size of your head!

          2. Ok – I feel like the dorky president of the John Chow fan club (maybe I’ll get a T-Shirt) but nonetheless I submitted a basic entry into Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_chow

            I encourage everyone to contribute and modify the entry as you see fit.

          3. Sorry – minor edit – here’s the link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Chow

          4. Dave says:

            Both of those entries are blank for me πŸ™

          5. Hmm – wikipedia seems to be rejecting John. Not sure why the entry is vanishing – I put it back and I’ll investigate.

          6. This might be trickier than I thought. Stay tuned.

          7. I wouldn’t have thought it would be that tricky… 😯

          8. Dave says:

            Everyone hates John because of how evil he is! Digg…Wikipedia…

            :mrgreen:

          9. ilker says:

            Yeah the Wiki doesnt work.. πŸ™

  2. Babak says:

    John, I’m glad you don’t let facts get in the way of your opinions.

    j/k

    1. It’s very true, have a positive attitude and you can do anything!

      1. Babak says:

        Saman,
        shhhh… that’s the secret!

        1. Dave says:

          IIRC, John made a substantial amount of money with all advantage before it collapsed. He’s taking a calculated with their second go. If it goes belly up, I doubt he’ll be out too much. However it it takes off, he has a huge network to profit from.

        2. That is from The Secret!

    2. John Chow says:

      He he. Well, you really gave no facts. You gave your opinion based on what little you knew about it. Since the company is still in pre-launch, everything is an opinion.

      Who was it that said, “Opinions are like assholes. Everybody has one and they all stink.”

      BTW – to your SEC question. AGLOCO is registered in Hong Kong. Last time I checked, the SEC don’t operate there.

      1. Babak says:

        John,
        Are they are based out (incorp.) of HK or have they registered with HKEx to issue shares?

        2 very different things

        1. John Chow says:

          They’re headquartered and incorporated in HK. The plans are to list the shares on the London exchange.

      2. Babak says:

        “Last time I checked, the SEC don’t operate there”

        A common misconception. The SEC doesn’t care where a company is based.

        They care about one thing: are you selling/distributing shares to the public in the US? if yes, you must abide by US law.

        This goes for any jurisdiction btw. Want to sell/distribute shares to Canadians? Sure, come on in! But we’ve got 10, count’em, 10 regulatory authorities. One for each province.

        Want to distribute shares to the English? Sure, call up the FSA. And so on and so on. You get the idea.

    3. ilker says:

      Can we have positive and evil attitude at the same time? 😈

  3. Patrix says:

    I wonder what is your opinion on this article. Got it off the front page of Digg.

    1. John Chow says:

      You need to read the first paragraph of this post. πŸ™‚

      1. Dave says:

        Haha,

        I see a lot of comments like that. You think…did they read the post at all? πŸ™‚

        1. Jeff Kee says:

          When negativity dominates.. people jump to the comment section to pitch their voice in without hearing out the others.

        2. Marc says:

          Ya it’s pretty funny to read these comments. I’ve pointed out to more than one person already that John had already answered their question in the post they were commenting on πŸ™‚

          1. Wait – we’re supposed to read?!!?

          2. Dave says:

            Nah…lots of people don’t bother with actually reading the post! :mrgreen:

        3. ilker says:

          ➑ sees title.. jumps to comments

      2. Dave says:

        You are currently in the top commentator list on the site John. I thought that was hilarious.

        1. ilker says:

          That is funny πŸ˜†

      3. Patrix says:

        Oops! my bad! 😐 I completely missed that. Went straight for the text after the image.

    2. I guess I should have thought of writing something like this to draw some attention as well. . πŸ˜€

    3. Marc says:

      I’m just going through the article now and can’t help but wonder what a bald faced lie is…

      1. Marc says:

        Well this article that bashes Agloco is loaded with all kinds of nearsighted criticisms.

        The author seems to have decided that it’s a scam and has written a post to hep support that opinion. For example the idea that the owners are going to line their pockets while leaving the membership out in the cold once revenue does start churning is pretty short sighted.

        If they were scam artists, I could agree with this statement. If they’re business people they’ll know that they need to keep the membership happy in order to keep doing business. I’m not saying they won’t take their cut, but they’re not going to freeze out the users while they go out and buy multi-million dollar homes. That would lead to a very short life span for the company.

        These guys are in it to win it and are going to do whatever they can to make their idea fly. A quick dash and grab could earn them millions, but a solid business with happy advertisers and happy users could earn them billions.

      2. Babak says:

        The Googles is great for such questions:

        bald-faced (bΓ΄ld’fāst’)
        adj.

        1. Brash; undisguised: a bald-faced lie.

        your friendly dictionary (gathering dust on a shelf) is also not a bad source of info

  4. Carl says:

    That article is absolutely spot on correct, and exactly what I’ve been saying from day 1.

    Of course, there is the potential for John Chow and a few others to make money. But the potential is very low, because it depends on people installing ads on their browser just to make these few people make money… and maybe they’ll earn a few dollars in the process.

    But I doubt it will ever go public, and if it does, it will never become profitable. They are not offering a service in exchange for advertising… They are offering the promise of money, without actually promising anything.

    Quite clever, really. I would be willing to bet that Agloco will yet again by a symbol of the Dot Com Crash 2.0 if it is to happen.

    1. Dejan says:

      Dont care if it brings me that few 1000s $$$ 😈 😈

      1. ilker says:

        Hmmm.. cant get enuff benjamins 😐

  5. Miriguy says:

    Whoa… 9,000 sign ups already. It’s really spreading like wildfire. Hehe πŸ˜‰
    You really inspires me John

    1. He has been working at it for a while, those numbers didn’t happen overnight!

      1. Dave says:

        Like the 1938 video says…the A Listers work harder than you!

    2. ilker says:

      Impressive indeed ❗

  6. Sometimes you just gotta believe yourself and work on it. Who knows about the future? It is better to see it for yourself than listen to others.

    1. ilker says:

      Sometimes you need to listen as well..

  7. TJP says:

    Great post, John. This is why I read your blog. Not necessarily for the money making tips, but for your insight on the “proper business mindset.” It’s what you can do, not can’t.

    1. ilker says:

      Yeah even though John is evil.. he is very positive too!

  8. saravanan says:

    hello sir

    can u tell me how to get money from agloco
    i registred only by using email id wt about the address …

  9. zaki says:

    I wonder how hard and smart we have to work to be the 0.01%?

    How long can we reach there?

    Is there going to be some sort of investment? few hundreds or few thousand dollars?

    I would like to be in that 0.01% category as well. But being in the top 20% will already make me happy…

    1. Marc says:

      Then shift your goal. If the top 20% is all you want then that’s what you should shoot for. It will be easier and cheaper.

      The point that John’s trying to make is that making the top 0.01% is a matter of motivation. If you want it, you can get it. It won’t be easy, it won’t be cheap and you’ll probably have to use your intelligence, but it’s achievable.

      Dumping on something is easy, succeeding at it is hard, but not impossible.

  10. Ronaldo says:

    It’s growing by the thousands, nice work! At least 10 of those 9000 are in my small network.

    What I really don’t get is why is it bothering people so much if the risk is ZERO. No money invested, no money to lose.

    Besides, if most people will only make beer money, let them drink their beers! πŸ™‚

  11. Ulchie says:

    I agree. If you want something bad enough, you can do it.

    There is money to be made in Agloco if it launches. But as for how much the shares are worth… I don’t think they would be worth much due to people selling them and teh company always issueing more shares to new users at a quick pace. Supply/Demand. But there will still be all that advertising money being distributed and that is where the true value lies anyways.

    AND that article was correct, the owners did put lots of stipulations in to save themselves and the company. That is smart! They did learn from the first attempt and they have obviously attempted to implement some safety nets to allow the company to survive any issues that may arise.

    Good luck with your earnings.

  12. John you’re killing me. I am so impressed by your success with the internet. You must be doubling you income annually. That is the great thing about blogs no matter what, traffic will increase with the number of article written. How many hits do you get each day from google? I am happy to have 25-30 hits per day from google! I bet you can’t wait for Agloco to start up.

    Adam

    1. John Chow says:

      I get over 1,000 per day from Google.

    2. ilker says:

      I’m happy to get even 10! :mrgreen:

      I should learn how to SEO soon πŸ™„

  13. A coward dies a thousand deaths, the brave die but one… I think that says it all!

    1. Dave says:

      Uh…it does? I’m not really following you πŸ˜•

      1. I think it’s a “it’s better to try and fail, then not try at all” quotes…

  14. They pushed back the release of the toolbar a bit so I am not surprised that some people start bashing on them.

    Wish I had only 1% of your online success. I really need to roll up my sleeves badly. 😐

    1. Well in fact I did roll up my sleeves and worked harder. March is my best month ever, but the growth has been almost invisible.

    2. ilker says:

      You have a long way to go my friend.. but ALL THE BEST! πŸ˜‰

  15. Scot says:

    John,

    Is this you?

    I thought you were a cage fighter? What’s up with the hearts man…

    Thanks,
    Scot

    1. John Chow says:

      No, that’s not me. I would never use a free site. 😐

      1. ilker says:

        What a horrible website!! 😯

    2. ilker says:

      Are you serious!? ❗ ❓

      “My interests are martial arts, spiritual arts, and healing.”

  16. I agree with your comments about having the right attitude John, but there are some points in that article you linked to that raise a few questions.
    Don’t get me wrong, I signed up to Agloco like 9,000 other people πŸ˜‰ but it’s been a little while now and the viewbar seems no closer to release, and their model doesn’t seem to be the simple surf -> get paid model I’d hoped for. On the other hand, if nothing comes of it, I won’t have lost any money, but at the same time, the longer this thing drags out without anything actually going live, the more inclined I am to think that this just isn’t going to happen. 😳

    1. ilker says:

      You can still raise question positively?

  17. Jeff says:

    Very impressive John. 10,000 will be the real milestone, congrats

  18. SELaplana says:

    that’s what I actually like with chow guy. Being positive in what ever you do will eventually lead you to the success you’re dreaming of.

    If i only believe on impossible, maybe until today i am not earning from blogging because when I started blogging last 2003 everybody is telling me it’s impossible to make money with that idiot blog.

  19. Abdul Aziz says:

    Paid for surfing is nothing new. Lets see how long they they survive.
    Buy hey, earn while the hay shines (or whatever the saying is)

    1. ilker says:

      I’m curious as well.. it has been done before. Except this time, they are gathering users first ❗

  20. Jason says:

    YYou know what, you are absolutely right about the success thing. It’s the same thing that my personality dvelopment sir tells me. 😎

    1. ilker says:

      Personality is very important on the net..

  21. Sami says:

    – There hasn’t been a business that survived without providing a real service or product in the history of worl, so will not Agloco. I suspect Agoloco will wrap up before 2008. Let this post stay here for evidence πŸ˜€

    – Making money on the Internet has nothing to do with whethere a business model (or lack of) like Agloco will be a success or not. There is a lot of information (including many posts on this blog aside from Agoloco write-ups) that provides a path to start earning money online.

    1. In case you do not know, no business in the world survives forever, at all. Even with a real product or service. Everything has an end, be it a generation, one century or afew centuries.

      1. Dave says:

        Microsoft might last til the end of the earth! πŸ™‚

        1. Until they outprice themselves and Open Source products get better!

          1. Dave says:

            Open source products already rival Microsoft in quality. It’s just a matter of dominating the market so much, it’s very difficult to overcome.

        2. yes, even if we cut Microslave’s head off, it will probably scurry around the floor for years.. 😈

          1. Dave says:

            Bill is retiring soon…doubt that will slow the beast down though!

        3. ilker says:

          Microsoft is evil.. so yes! 😈

  22. Jeff Kee says:

    I’m very curious to see how well this will turn out in terms of income – how much exactly you will be making.

  23. happysurfer says:

  25. Bret says:

    Great post and very true. If you let someone else tell you what’s possible, you’ll never succeed. The negative attitudes far outweigh the positive attitudes. Success is always a work in progress.

    1. ilker says:

      Nobody likes “negatives”

  26. James says:

    If Agloco is to make it depends on two things:
    Providing a service or money to those that subscribe.
    Providing good advertising to the companies that advertise through it.

    If they do not succeed in keeping people interested in using the bar, they will not be able to provide the advertising they sell. If they can make the bar useful to the average person, then people will use it even if they do not get much in the way of money from it. It could actually succeed then, but it would have to be useful to the average person who may not may much if anything with it.

  27. I think you are lucky πŸ™‚

    1. ilker says:

      No I think he works hard ❗

  28. James says:

    Congrats John.. I think your points are spot on. The measure of success is in the eye of the beholder. If you believe your a failure then you’ll always be such. Same is true for a website, a tool or some other medium. Everybody has an opinion and what works for one doesn’t always work for another.

    1. ilker says:

      Success is in the eye of the statistics! πŸ™‚

  29. Skitzzo says:

    John I don’t mean to be rude but don’t you think you’re perspective might be a bit skewed? With 9k people signed up under you, if Algoco is a success you stand to make a TON of money. If it’s a pyramid scheme you’re one of the ones on top and you still get paid. If it falls flat on it’s face, your reputation could take a bit of a hit and you might have wasted a bit of time. I just think you might be looking at it with rose colored glasses.

    1. Dave says:

      Or maybe he started from day one so he could be the man on the top.

      The rich get richer, especially when they know how to leverage their existing properties to build new opportunities for themselves.

      1. Skitzzo says:

        Dave, I didn’t say John hadn’t done a good job positioning himself as one of the ones on top. He’s leveraged this blog perfectly. However, your comment had nothing to do with mine.

        John stands to gain a lot of Algoco succeeds. How he got there isn’t the issue. I’m merely suggesting he might be overlooking some serious flaws in Algoco because of those prospective gains.

        1. Dave says:

          Yes, but if Agloco fails, what has John lost? Nothing. Should he have no bothered to build up his network because it may fail? (I’m not trying to say that there are no flaws or things that need to be fixed with the system).

          John has a unique position of being able to build a massive network with little monetary investment. Why not build the network? If it fails, he will loose nothing. I wouldn’t suggest someone focus on an Agloco as their primary online endeavor… but John’s Agloco network is a perfect example of his excellent decision making and strategy in running his online properties. That’s why he’s on top.

        2. ilker says:

          Exactly.. even if it fails, all he will lose is time wasted on building the network.

  30. Babak says:

    Skitzzo,
    as explained in the article John referred to above, Agloco isn’t like AllAdvantage. Since there isn’t a direct link between surfing and getting paid, the vast majority of the minions will leave as fast or faster than they have joined when they realize that the pay is both, miniscule and that it takes months and months to accumulate to that miniscule amount.

    1. ilker says:

      You should use the reply to this comment feature.. it’s easier to follow in my opinion.

  31. androo says:

    that is awesome… congrats!

    1. ilker says:

      Congratulations JC! (sorry for not mentioning b4)

  32. Mubin says:

    Damn I have never seen John be so responsive in his comments before. Im loving it!

    John could you do a case study on TTZ, I want to see how it compares to this blog in the case of earnings, and traffic.

    1. Dave says:

      I’d imagine that John isn’t interested in sharing that information. If he does, I’m sure JohnChow.com is a mere drop in the bucket compared to TTZ.

    2. Scot says:

      Are you sure it’s John Chow, or could it be a Ghost Commentator πŸ˜‰

      1. Dave says:

        John is pretty lax on the comment moderation, but I doubt he’d let someone impersonate him!

        1. Scot says:

          But would he let someone take money to comment? I don’t know if he would or not so I’m just guessing at a possibility. He IS evil, afterall 😈

          1. Dave says:

            My guess is no, but feel free to disagree πŸ˜›

      2. ilker says:

        Yeah I don’t think he allows that..

    3. ilker says:

      Yeah John is impressing me too!

  33. Jeremy says:

    Your funny John.

    “The only thing that matters is what I think.”

    I wouldn’t be complaining either if I had 9000 people in my network.

    1. Dave says:

      This seems like a trivial statement….but consider. John’s success dwarfs mine and 99% (maybe 100%) of the other readers and commenter’s of his blog.

      His amazing success is why his blog is so popular and why would he care about the business advice we have for him? πŸ™‚

      1. ilker says:

        “why would he care about the business advice we have for him?”

        Because his success depends on us.. what would he have if all 9000 signed out at once?

        1. ilker says:

          Actually, wait.. not 9000 – it’s 774 direct referrals.

          1. Everyone counts, whether or not you are a direct or indirect referral.

  34. That’s incredible; however, I’m looking to see AGLOCO go down as fast as it came up.

    1. Yeah, I am still very skeptical about it. They overhype it, plus they constantly avoid or dodge questions about user privacy. A big no-no on the Internet.

      1. ilker says:

        I agree. I’m skeptical as well.. πŸ˜•

      I haven’t really made up my mind either way. I think the idea is good on paper…not sure if it will work in the real world.

    I’m continuously impressed with your attitude about your blog. I feel that attitude is everything in this world and without it, you are what people tell you that you are. Thank you for this blog.

    1. Dave says:

      Attitude is important, but it won’t get things done. You need the attitude and the hard work.

      1. ilker says:

        Attitude + Hard work = Success

    Everyone got their own opinion. Go try to create yourself one and getting 9000 people join under you. Yes probably John will make the money and no one will. This might not be a pyramid scheme but then pyramid schemes DO work and some people HAVE made a lot of money out of it, if not you and me. John is here to make the money, and he will if Algoco works even a little bit. He is evil but then how many evil people will actually let you know how they make money? he is. if it works for you, good for you and if not then there is nothing to complain about. However if you dont try, you wont know!!!

      It’s not easy and people are lazy!

  37. Damn straight, John. That’s all I have to say. Damn straight. 😎

    Shine on,
    Aaron

    Nice Post Mr. Chow. I firmly believe in what you say. It’s all based on thoughts. If you think negative thoughts you’ll attract more negative circumstances and if think positive you’ll attract more postive events and circumstances. That’s why you have that many sign ups because of your Positive Energy. Like Attracts Like.

    Check out this Video. Everyone Should watch it. Cool Video on the “Law of Attraction The Secret

    Good luck Mr. Chow. I hope I can catch up to your stats. One day…..

  39. 😯 Wow! 9,000!

    1. ilker says:

      Yeah.. that was my initial reaction!

  40. derrich says:

    Sheesh. I just got started. 1 and counting.

  41. evelyn says:

    πŸ˜† i would love to get started to see if i would like it to come and try it

  42. Agloco says:

    Great job John! I now have 1140 and I’m waiting to tell 2000+ network marketers about this. I want to see the toolbar and see how it works before really promoting Agloco.

  43. markowe says:

    I quite agree with the idea you should believe in yourself and you will succeed, but surely it’s quite another to believe in someone else and their not-always-entirely-trustworthy ideas!

    I’d be the first to hope Agloco succeeds, but I just want to point out this flawed logic!

  44. Very admirable, John…the same goes with other aspects in life, right? A little optimism can take you a long way. πŸ™‚

    Hi John, I thought id finally say something. Ive been reading your blog now since early feb when i stumbled onto agloco. Who i signed through ill never know. But the point is that i was a very green blogger, still am, but over the months ive been coming back and reading what you write and learning the ways to better myself. I know ive never posted here before, but id like to thank you for helping me get to where i am today, as far as building my blog and promoting agloco is concerned, and i wish you all the best with agloco and everything you do.
