AGLOCO Who?

It’s been a few weeks since we’ve heard from AGLOCO. The last time we heard from them was over a month ago back in December where they finally set a deadline for the launch of the AGLOCO viewbar for 7 – 10 weeks. I pretty much forgot all about them until I received their latest email.

In their latest email communication sent yesterday, and hidden within the rest of the propaganda, they said that the viewbar was still a few weeks away. Well, it’s been 4 weeks since the last communication, so based on that, it looks like the viewbar should hit about 3 – 6 weeks from now. Again, if they don’t deliver, they might as well just forget it.

Instead of elaborating on the all important status of the viewbar, they had fluffy bits of info:

Over 30,000 of you have already recruited a least one new Member to AGLOCO (and some of you have recruited referral networks of more than 10,000).

This recruiting effort has been going on around the globe. Google results for “AGLOCO” now include many different languages (75,000 pages in Chinese – even 150 pages in Lithuanian).

That’s just dandy folks, but really, we’re more interested in the viewbar. However, impressive these numbers are, relatively speaking, they don’t really show true growth. What are the numbers relative to? Is the monthly sign up trend going up or down as a whole? But alas, people are drawn by big numbers so I’m sure the marketability of this information has served its purpose.

I find it amusing that amidst my skeptical take on the whole AGLOCO situation, they still have me in the top 2.92% of the top referrers. I guess I have some go getters signed up that just want to take a chance and just run with it. Others are probably sitting on the fence till the viewbar launches while some just don’t give a rats ass.

Three to six weeks left AGLOCO. Let’s see if you’re bluffing!

    I agree with your skepticism, Stephen. Everyone else is saying “now is the time to recruit” before the released. However, I don’t want to recruit people now who are excited about it, and then their excitement has died in 4 weeks when the viewbar comes out. Then I’ll just have a bunch of referrals who aren’t making me any money. Even though waiting until later may result in less referrals, I feel it will result in more active referrals.

    And I still don’t know if we’ll make any money, but at least I’m not planning on putting in a crazy amount of work for it. So it shouldn’t matter.

      There’s people doing all sorts of work to make this go. Making instructional videos, printing up business cards, renting out booths at tradeshows. There will be a lot of pissed off people if this thing flops. I’m glad I’m not one of those people.

      If it doesn’t go, no harm no foul for me. But if it does go, I’m covered too.

    I’m sitting at just one referral. While their business plan this time around is much more sound, it’s also not nearly as attractive to users as the old one. We’re banking on the possibility, not on something firm.

    yea i really hope they do get it going. How much are people predicting it to make? say someone signs up but has no network and surfs the 5 hours is there an estimate for that?

      You make no money. At least not right now. The offer is shares in a company that may, or may not, go public, pending regulatory approval. So you’re surfing for the promise of shares worth something someday. The more you sign up, the more shares you get because you’ll be surfing for shares, and so will your netowork. Depending on how things pan out, you’ll either have a whole bunch or shares worth nothing, or a whole bunch of shares worth something…maybe. How much is anyone’s guess.

      Well, if the viewbar doesn’t show up, you might as well have ZERO. I almost think they want us to forget about the viewbar altogether.
