How Much Can You Make With AGLOCO?

Today I passed the 3,600 member mark in my AGLOCO network. As I write this post, my membership count stands at 3,611. This is a 601 sign up increase since I posted my last AGLOCO update nine days ago. This is a big improvement and a sure sign that things are picking up.


How Much Can You Make With AGLOCO?

Aside from the most asked question of when the Viewbar will be available (the answer is 4-6 weeks), the second most asked question is how much money can you make from this deal? For that answer, many AGLOCO members are pointing to the Simmons Report for potential AGLOCO earnings.

The Simmons Report valuations are based on AGLOCO getting 2 million users in two years. Now the first question a new member may have is how can the Simmons Report based its number on 2 million in 2 years when AGLOCO themselves have stated their goal is to get 10 million members by July 1st, 2007. The answer is quite simple. The Simmons Report is based on ACTIVE USERS. When you sign up with AGOLCO, you become a member even if you don’t do anything. And when something doesn’t cost anything, it’s pretty easy to do nothing. The fact of the matter is 80% of the membership will never sign up another person. This was how it was with the old AllAdvantage and I don’t expect it to change with AGLOCO. In a way, this is good for me because I have less competition. So how much can you make with AGLOCO? The Simmons Report came up with the following data.

  • A user who has no referrals should receive ownership in AGLOCO worth about $150 plus monthly cash distributions.
  • The average value of an AGLOCO user’s referral network should be $30 each in ownership shares plus the referrer’s share of monthly cash distribution.
  • The average AGLOCO direct referral should be worth in excess of $3,000 each.
  • The monthly cash distributions should be between $5 and $15 a month per user.

All the above is based on 2 million active users. We know that 80% of the membership won’t be active in signing people up so based on that we can assume 10 million total members. AGLOCO plans to be at 10 million members in the next six months, not two years. So if anything, the Simmons Report is being very conservative.

A member who signs up nobody but just surf the maximum five hours per month should make $5 to $15 per month. The number will depend on the size of the user base and state of the Internet advertising market. The question this brings up is would people surf the Net with a toolbar for $5 to $15 per month? Well, millions of people surf the Internet right now with a Google or Alexa toolbar for $0 per month. Imagine what they would do if they got paid for it.

A Better Deal Than AllAdvantage

For the 20% of the membership who will build AGLOCO, I can say the deal we’re getting this time around is much better than the old AllAdvatage deal. Not only will you be making money from your referral network but you’ll also be getting ownership in the company that could worth $30 for every referral you have (based on 2 million users). The bigger the user base gets, the more your ownership per referral is worth.

How much can you expect to make off each referral in your network? From my old AllAdvantage days, I was making 30 to 50 cents per month off each referrals in my network. This was just on pure banner ads and nothing else. The AGLOCO Viewbar will be offering banners adverting, contextual advertising, search advertising and affiliate deals, so I see no reason why it can’t beat the rate of the old AllAdvantage Viewbar. We are in another dot com boom. I make more with ads now than I ever did in the old boom days. Of course, 50 cents per month off each members isn’t that much, but when you multiply that by 3,611 members (increasing by over 60 per day), it’s $1,800+ a month. That’s not bad for just surfing the Web! And there’s still the $30 per member ownership part of the deal.

Some Useful Sites To Get You Started

AGLOCO Company Blog – The official company blog of AGLOCO. You’ll find the latest company developments here.

The AGLOCO Test – I believe this is one of my referrals. This website will determine if real money can be made by surfing the web and referring others to do the same. So far, he is at minus $89.21. Daily updates will allow you to follow every detail of the test from Day 1.

AGLOCO News – I am pretty sure this guy is one of my referrals. The site offers news and updates on AGLOCO, plus you may relate more with the author because he is building his network the way most will build it – one member at a time.

RZ McCall – McCall is one of AGLOCO’s top guns. He recently passed 11,500 referrals. Here’s the killer part. He did all this with just 82 direct sign ups. McCall is a specialist in the “friends and family” rollout plan. He credits that plan with building his network.

AGLOCO Top Gun – A list of the top 10 AGLOCO referrers, ranked by total referrals and most directs. I’m currently rank #3 in total referrals and #1 in directs. The list can serve as both motivation and proof that people are building this thing.

Harold’s – This blog did a five part analysis of the Simmons Report that is worth reading if you wish to really get down and dirty with the numbers.

Now Is The Time To Build

As I’ve stated in my last post, I feel NOW is the time to build your AGLOCO network because you have very little competition at this time. Waiting until the Viewbar is released may make it easier to sign people up but you’ll face more competition and may find the people you wanted to sign up have already signed up with someone else.

    ive found it extremely hard to get people to sign up for agloco due to the viewbar being down
    any tips on how to get people to sign up despite this?

  2. Soj says:

    You might have 3600 Members, but how many of those people will actually remember to get the toolbar when it is released, how many people have free email accounts such as hotmail and yahoo who might not see there toolbar release email from Agloco as its sent to the JunkMail folder.

    Im finding it pretty hard to signup people when theres no immediate toolbar to download and start making money, I think once they have released it, they will see a huge influx of members, and I will see a lot more signups.

  3. Gdog says:

    I agree, unless I can show new members a cheque received in the mail, along with the viewbar to install…it is very tough to sign up new members.

  4. Dan says:

    I agree. I wrote few articles about the subject, talked to number of people about it, sent emails (just to prove you I am not just waiting for things to happen) and my AGLOCO network comprises of all 2 people:)

    Mostly the reactions are same – no Viewbar so they will better wait.

  5. Marc says:

    Very nice pitch John. Well done.

  6. Dejan says:

    If it´s 0,5-1$ it will be sweeet 8)

  7. Ryan says:

    I just want to know what the viewbar looks like. The Alexa and Google toolbars aren’t obtrusive and they provide something useful. 😉

    1. John Chow says:

      Here’s a video showing the features of the Viewbar.

      1. Ryan says:

        Thanks for the link, and for the record it doesn’t look like it’s going to be too bad.

        The guy giving that video, however, is terrible. No wonder it only has ~875 views.

        1. Alex Becker says:

          Thanks for that John.

  8. Nomar says:

    that is amazing, I might write again about this.. maybe a email bulletin

  9. Jane says:

    Yeah, they should have gotten the guy from Big Big News to do the clip.

    Thanks for the resources John!

  10. AglocoNews says:

    Hi John,

    Yeah I did sign up under you. (Not that I can prove it yet, hopefully they will setup the opt-in so members in a network can talk directly with the people they signed under or people who signed up under them) But anyways about 6% of your extended form January is from me. 🙂

    Also to all the people talking about how they are having a hard time getting people to sign-up. I feel your pain. If you goto my site I have been doing weekly updates for 9 weeks. I had only 7 people in my network for a month. Just recently I had a big jump. Just like anything else, (if you don’t already have an established network to draw from) it just takes time and you have to stick with it.

  11. Alex Becker says:

    I should really start signing people up.

    1. Leftblank says:

      Join the club of people who are trying to figure how to get others signed up 😉

      1. Michael Kwan says:

        I have a feeling we’re all in John’s network though 😉

  12. Walter Vos says:

    John, I’m wondering, are there any risks involved in AGLOCO? I mean, suppose the company goes bankrupt, and I own shares, will I inherit AGLOCO’s debts?

    I’m no expert in stock, so please don’t look at me funny for asking. 😉

    1. John Chow says:

      The shareholders, provided they are not part of the management team or board of directors, can not be held liable for anything the company does. Having shares in a public company (like Google) just means you own a piece of it but you’re not responsible for its actions.

      1. Kees Klok says:

        Well John, you are incorrect about not being able to be held liable.
        That depends on the legal structure of the firm. In Holland there are several legal structures which hold a sharholder liable.

        And since Agloco has chosen not to reveal anything about its legal structure, about where it is based, about why is uses Hong Kong law in case of disputes.
        It also has not made it possible for us to go to the chamber of commerce and view the documents regarding the founding etcetera.

        Agloco is not a public company, since it is not listed on any stock exchange. Funny enough though, they plan to do that, get a stock listing. On London’s AIM stock exchange. But they are an American firm, applying Hong Kong law. And people wonder why they have trouble signing up others.
        There is nothing to sign up on.
        No community, no shares, no viewbar, nothing.

        Yeah, I know they have this “The world’s first economic network” slogan on their site, but there is nothing. Nothing yet anyway. Just a bunch of promises on a website.
        Maybe someday there will be something, but for now it is just a promise.

  13. Matt608 says:

    Im a rare ‘inbetween’ breed of AGLOCO members, I try hard to refer but I have limited success but not total failure. 14 direct referrals and 7 indirect apparently makes me in the top 10% but im really dissapointed in my referrals! I have referred more than they have put together!

    1. Michael Kwan says:

      You’re still ahead of me. My network consists of about 5 people total.

  14. Agloco Dude says:

    Hey John,
    I dunno if that 2 mil Simmon is the same as what Agloco meant..

    I am pretty sure, when they said 10 mil users, they meant 10 mil active users..


  15. Emad Hassan kenona says:

    I fond of Agloco wonderful techinques

  16. I remember building an alladvantage network and spending lots of time and money advertising. Too bad they went bankrupt. Let’s hope this one doesn’t.

  17. Stuart DuPont says:

    How BOGUS is the Agloco calculator!

    It says if I directly sign up 1 person who then signs up 20…. I have a total of 21 people which pays me over $200,000 PER MONTH. Somebody needs to put the crack pipe down!

    P.S. How many levels down (referrals) do we get credit for? There has to be a limit.

  18. tek428 says:

    Wow! Your doing great! I signed up about 2 levels below you, so some of your indirects have come from me…lol

    I have opened a nice AGLOCO forum and would love to
    see you stop in and say hi sometime.


  19. Lolak says:

    Thanks for nice article, but when will we get paid from AGLOCO?

  20. Seleno says:

    hey gr8 to see things cropping up so fast and agloco going wider and wider but everythig is being talked about, from the amount of members agloco is targeting to make in a year, to direct and indirect referals, then the advantage over all advantage but what about the users who r building the network? They need to have a fair idea too about whats the appropirate amount they will make in cash from their referals for the motivation required to build the network. Money is the biggest motivator, not the ownership in shares of the company!
