Agloco - Own the internet

There are tons of social networking sites. My personal favourite is LinkedIn. But Agloco is somewhat different and takes the concept of revenue sharing from Metacafe. It is promising to share the income they get with you. It is not fully functional yet as it is still in Beta (what a surprise), so all you have to do is sign-up for now. I'm guessing the earlier you sign up the better, because once it gets more popular most of your friends will have already signed up. We will see how it turns out in the near future.

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.
