Al Chapman Wants To Share The Incentives

John Chow dot Com reader Al Chapman got so tired of waiting for AGLOCO to get their act together that he decided to create his own “Economic Network.” The amazing thing is, Al managed to create a reasonable facsimile of AGLOCO (including a working Viewbar) within a few weeks. It really makes you wonder what those MBAs’ at AGLOCO are doing.

The new site is call Share Incentives and Al ordered this ReivewMe review because he needs your help to beta test and finish it.

Hey John – Love the blog! Still a lot of work to do on the site but really would like to have your readers involved helping complete the site. It’s an opportunity for a community to earn money, invest in start ups and other online income generating strategies without having to put up the time or money.

It Really Should Be Call an Alpha

Share Incentive would like you to believe they are in the beta stage. However. from looking at all the incomplete features, I would call them an alpha. There are no links for pages like Terms of Use, Privacy Policy and Membership Agreement. The member control panel look unfinished. The site has has numerous errors and there is no clear message on what the site really does. I still couldn’t understand how it works even after reading how it works.

From what I have been able to find out, Share Incentive will make money from advertising shown in their Viewbar, ads from the video center that shows YouTube videos, and a marketplace where members buy and sell stuff. Every member is giving a store (this is my one) but all the graphics are broken.

The Viewbar does not display properly on my dual screen setup. Three quarters of the bar is on screen one and the rest is on screen two. The Viewbar shows ads only and nothing else. I ran it for five minutes before turning it off. Amazingly enough, I managed to rack up 187 points during those five minutes of surfing. Points are used to purchases prizes but when I went to check the prize page there was nothing available.

Judging by the direct and extended referrals on the stats pages, I can only assume that Share Incentives is using the same business model as AGLOCO. I can also assume that the extended referrals goes down four levels just like AGLOCO. I don’t know for sure because it’s not listed anywhere on the site.

At this point I am thinking, “Man, they’re going to need a major incentive to get anyone to sign up with the site in its current state.” Well, it turns out they have one.

Win $500 Cash from Share Incentives

To create an incentive for people to join and help complete the site, Al Chapman is offering an extra incentive to John Chow dot com readers.

Also would like to offer anyone who signs up under your referral link a unique contest. Who ever signs up under your link and gets the most points (earned by using the bar and referrals will earn $500. Contest will end Jan 31.

While offering the $500 is a nice incentive, I am not sure how well the site will do. AGLOCO has been around of over a year and has yet to pay out a cent to its members. In addition, their SSL certificate expired on November 18 and hadn’t been renewed. That is not a good sign. A even worst sign is that site no longer loads.

There is nothing wrong with copying a company. However, maybe Al should have copied a company that was making money.

    1. Boy, I don’t know about AGLOCO anymore! All the hype, and I’m thinking it’s going to fail. 🙁 Anyways, great post as always John!

      1. Jack says:

        was al chapman the owner of agloco?

        1. Steven says:

          No idea but I don’t think so. Good thing I never bothered downloading the toolbar or running Agloco.

          1. The only toolbar I liked was StumbleUpon… stumbled this post John! 🙂

          2. Oh yeah, stumbled the Shareincentives.com too.

            Anyone wanna trade stumbles? Stumble http://QuarterWiki.com and I will stumble yours.

        2. James B. says:

          Yea probably not. It would look more like the real thing.

      2. Etienne Teo says:

        All are going to fail because that concept will not work.

        1. Well as John said, he should have copied a business that does make money actually.

    2. Joshua says:

      Haha, nice domain. Maybe I should change my Agloco123.com!

      Damn impulse domaining!

      1. Jack says:

        and should i register shareincentives101.com and shareincentives123.com? 😉

        1. Radu says:

          … Or shareincentivesxxx.com 😀

  2. GettyCash says:

    I have been waiting for AGLOCO almost a year. Their viewbar is not working anymore. Many people gave up on it.

    I hope Share Incentives will succeed.

    1. Yes, you can see AGLOCO spend a year and it is still not successful and pay out.
      In this stage, Share Incentives just like a website under-develop. They don’t even have Privacy Policy, Terms of Use pages and they didn’t say what it works! I think I will NOT type my personal information on that site.
      When we sign up for AGLOCO, we don’t need to give our personal information expect email address. But this Share Incentives seems just what to collect personal information to sell or do something ❓

  3. Pam Hoffman says:

    Any chance this will work? It still might be worth signing up. I’ll be watching.

    Thanks John,

    1. Michael Talk says:

      I was going to join until it asked for my home address and phone number. Most people will want to keep that private!

      1. Is there any reason why you cant make it up? 😛

    2. James B. says:

      Nice way to sneak you url in.

    3. Roseate says:

      Oh! another agloco….I don’t think it’s a good idea 🙄

  4. Satish S says:

    I was gonna join AGLOCO soon… good that I didnt. Ha!

    1. Michael Talk says:

      But there is nothing to loose if you join AGLOCO

      1. That’s true.
        But join Share Incentives you might loose your personal information like address, phone number, etc. They don’t even have a Privacy Policy page. Man, that sucks 👿

  5. Stephen says:

    AGLOCO is dead. Their SSL certificate expired.

    1. Etienne Teo says:

      All the while i have never believed it will be great!

  6. I’m pretty sure the owner of this site is loving the AGLOCO comparisons… NOT

  7. Probably not the most awesome review, though it does shed some good light on AGLOCO so thanks for that one John.

    Could be atleast worth a look in, and hey its nice to be involved from the beginning rather than coming in waaaaaaay too late when the site’s advertisers move on to the next startup big wow thing..

    1. Yea. I think the owner should have waited till it was finished to order a review… Ah well.

  8. GemViper says:

    The store images are broken but I’m surprised the whole page works at all right now. The code is missing those pesky little and type tags. Its probably just a forgotten header call but still 🙂

    Credit given for trying, the potential is there, a code cleanup is in order fast!

    1. GemViper says:

      h t m l and b o d y type tags, yer blog at my tags john!

    2. James B. says:

      Yes there is definetly potential in this site. It just needs a little better programmer.

  9. Gasmoney says:

    looks good and hope to check it out soon.

  10. Was this a ReviewMe for Agloco? All the comments seem to suggest so 😈

    1. Lol… Is there any difference? 😉

  11. J.J. Merrick says:

    interesting. Will need to take a look at that.

    Nice to know other people release beta software that is bug ridden 🙂

  12. John, are you going to go back and remove all those posts telling people how great Agloco is? I noticed it lost it’s spot in your recommended money makers at the top but is still in your list at the bottom of the page.

    The rest of you, does that finally teach you that just because John Chow says it doesn’t make it gospel? 🙄

  13. Stop the ‘review me’ trend John! lol

    More posts from YOU! That’s why I come here. :mrgreen:

    1. James B. says:

      I agree you are doing a lot of reviewme’s more serious content/ 😀

    2. MoneyNing says:

      Sometimes it’s hard to give up free (almost) money 🙂

  14. Will Share Incentives just like AGLOCO never pay out!

    Or Share Incentives just want to collect your personal infomation like email, address, phone and then sell to someone else?

  15. Jovan says:

    “maybe Al should have copied a company that was making money” good one, so what happened with agloco?

    1. John Chow says:

      I emailed the founder to get an official statement. If he sends one, I’ll post about it.

      1. Ohh! I’d love to hear that one. 🙂

  16. Tim Spangler says:

    Wow, John finally slaps AGLOCO. I think most people (including the thousands in your network) gave up on it long ago. It was a good exercise in network building (getting people to sign up for something so scam-like wasn’t easy!) but I never expected them to actually pay.

    That being said, anyone wanna buy aglocoholic.com? 😡

  17. Bored says:

    I was wondering if/when someone would copy Agloco. I think it’s funny that he put a viewbar together in a week while Agloco took 6+ months to come up with theirs.

    Well since we’re on the topic of get-paid sites why not get paid to recieved ads on your cell phone? They have a referral program too.

    Here’s the site for more info: http://www.fluc.com

    Unique code = signupbonus

  18. Suzanne says:

    Sounds Interesting. I’ll check it out.

  19. There’s a lot of fluff on their how it works page and not an ounce of info on how they will specifically make money. I wouldn’t touch it.

  20. MoneyNing says:

    I wonder if AllAdvantage will ever come back

    1. Considering those are the same guys invested in Agloco.. I don’t think so.

  21. Shane says:

    People are truly idiots. Worthless site and YOU make money by bashing it. I’ll bash it at wallstreefighter for $10

  22. So whatever happened to AGLOCO? I don’t think people really use anymore do they?

    1. No. It was a dumb idea to get paid like a very small amount for using the toolbar for 5 hours.

      The plan is they pay you after 10 years…long after they made millions and the company ceased trading – unfortunatley this never happened and the site went down ❗

  23. I tried using AGLOCO but I think unless you managed to get in on the ground floor, building referrals is too difficult at a certain point…

    1. If you got on board at the start it was easy…i’m glad i never joined because, i knew something would happen to them and it wouldnt be as clear/paid out as their inital claims.

  24. Mike Huang says:

    I have been waiting for Agloco soooo long, but they’re doing jack!

    -Mike

    1. It’s not the best idea and not a great revenue earner.

      Its best to do something else which (will take less time, since they need 5 hours of your time) and make you more profits in the long run 🙂

  25. starboykb says:

    i believe Agloco is going down sooner. No progress and instead asking others to joined other affiliate to increase your pay. That was starting to get ridicules to me. So how good is Share Incentive going to bring us? It is interesting to see it if it really works.

  26. Rico says:

    Great review John!!!!!
    My feelings are the same

  27. BETA on a site thats not even finished…what was this guy thinking? :mrgreen:

    Anyways….i think he should work on finishing a few more parts of it before asking for feedback…and/or hire a few people to be in a “private alpha” team 😎

  28. Not very smart to model your business after a failed company. 😆
