A lot has been said and read about Agloco ever since they started their Agloco viewbar campaign. Some people are really excited about it, others mock it. And both with good reason. A guy like JohnChow, who managed to get over 20,000 people in his Agloco referral network can count on a nice sum of money if Agloco actually starts to pay their members. He won’t care if it doesn’t though, just by being a member he is getting a tremendous amount of traffic from them.
Even if AGLOCO completely tanks and doesn’t pay out a cent, it won’t cost me anything. As a matter of fact, I’ve already made money just by being a member. The AGLOCO website sends me a tremendous amount of traffic. This is because they link to my Viewbar video on the member account page.
I love how he says:”I Can’t Believe How Easy This Is”, which is cowshit since the only reason he got that network so big is because he’s already got heaps of traffic coming from his popular blog. Success breeds success. Nothing easy about becoming successful at first though. I guess it’s just John trying to get even more referrals and I can’t blame him.
Agloco has been set up by the same people that brought you AllAdvantage, which crashed and burned in the dotcom bubble years.
Back then I was a part of the hype and used the AllAdvantage toolbar for months without ever getting a dime. This time round, Agloco can kiss my furry cowbutt because I’m not about to install a piece of software which forces me to watch advertisements while I’m browsing the web. Their payout scheme is too vague for my liking.
What most people seem to think is: You Surf, You Get Paid.
The actual process:
- You Surf.
- You Accumulate Limited Hour Units.
- You Convert These Into Agloco Shares.
- You wait until Agloco goes public.
- You Hope They Will Become Profitable.
- Agloco’s Board Declares Cash Dividend.
- You Might Get Paid.
Three guesses who will become rich from this and who will just waste their time and energy. From Agloco’s website:
“Remember, the company is 100% owned by the Members…”
No, it is not. It is a private company owned by a very few.
I say no to Agloco.
(PS I reserve the right the alter my statement in the future when and if Agloco is turning us surfers into dotcow millionaires)
