    Agloco Viewbar has arrived

    Posted by CJCM on 27th June 2007

    AGLOCO
    I first blogged about Agloco way back in December 2006. At that time, Agloco just existed in name. Nothing more, nothing less. The business concept of Agloco is simple though. Join Agloco as member, download the Agloco Viewbar and surf internet as normal. You can also refer someone to join Agloco and will be appropriately rewarded for that. Agloco however a step further in terms of its business operating principle. The company is owned by you… at least what is claimed by the founders of Agloco… by virtue that you can either get paid by cash or by share, if you prefer.

    That was just a story then and many people viewed Agloco as just another scam. And I believe until today many people still believe so. I rather take a different approach and joined Agloco and wait to see what had happened.

    Recently, Agloco had sent emails informing all its members that had registered during pre-launch about the much awaited Viewbar which is ready for download. I tried to download once but the traffic was so heavy that it was just not possible to download so I backoff for a while and today I managed to download and install the Viewbar.

    After installation, you will signon to Agloco and the Viewbar will be sitting very unobstructively at the bottom of your screen above your Window bar. Thats where the text advertisements will be served and displayed.

    Well, I haven’t seen real money yet, but the Viewbar is really conveniently located and does not bother me at all. So let’s see if I can really own the internet as claimed by Agloco… and make some extra cash. You can also own the internet if you wish… :)

    SlashMySearch starts paying its affiliates

    Posted by CJCM on 5th May 2007

    SlashMySearch, get paid for using search engineI blogged about a new way to earn extra income by using a search engine SlashMySearch sometime in Fabruary. There has been some update today by SlashMySearch and its good news for all affiliates. SlashMySearch has started to pay its members. All you have to do is to click request payment from your affiliate control panel, however the minium amount is USD50 but that had been reduced to USD45. According to SlashMySearch, the amoung will be further reduced in the future to USD20.

    With this new development, SlashMySearch has proved that it is not a scam and has lived up to its promise. I must say there have been many hiccups using SlashMySearch at beginning but that is normal in a beta stage for any new service, however a lot of issues had been resolved along the way and SlashMySearch is now, in my humble opinion, a new search engine force to be reckoned with.

    I like to thank all those affiliates that had joined under my affiliate. For those who have not started earning from using this new search engine, please click here to learn more and start earning additional income from SlashMySearch. Good luck!

    SponsoredReviews officially launched

    Posted by CJCM on 8th April 2007

    SponsoredReviews - win-win for bloggers and advertisersI joined a new web advertising program called SponsoredReviews sometime in mid January 2007. At that time the program was at the beta testing stage so I just joined and requested to be notified upon its launch. SponsoredReviews had been officially launched recently and I just got my first order from them. The first assignment is to review the SponsoredReviews itself.

    It looks like the trend among web advertising companies such as PayPerPost, RevewMe, CreamAid and now SponsoredReview is to always to review itself, which I think is important to create buzz among internet communities. After all web advertising companies also need to promote themselves too, right?

    So what is SponsoredReviews? Do I need to go in detail? With all the buzz, publicity and even controversy around pay-per-post schemes, it is suffice to say SponsoredReviews is not much different from other web advertising services that offers opportunity for advertisers to get their products and services reviewed by bloggers. The bloggers in turn get paid for their review services.

    Despite the similarity in the services offered by other paid advertising companies, SponsoredReviews has it own unique identities and features. The part that I think most bloggers like best is the fact that SponsoredReviews pays bloggers every two weeks after the assignments are completed. Other paid advertising companies normally companies pay bloggers one month after the assignments are completed. Now that is a big plus for bloggers.

    Bloggers are also not required to write only positive reviews. As a matter of fact, constructive critisms are expected so that quality of the products and services being reviewed can be improved from bloggers feedback.

    From advertisers point of veiw, SponsoredReviews has other advantages as well. SponsoredReviews offers a low transaction fees of only 35% while they claim their competitors charge 50%.

    Another good point of the system is that SponsoredReviews offers a Two-way system where advertisers and bloggers can search for each other for assignments. This is definitely unique feature of SponsoredReviews. In other programs, advertisers posts available opportunities and wait for bloggers to reply with offer to review their services, although the advertisrs can reject the reviews if it does not meet their requirements. With SponsoredReviews’s ability to search for each other, advertisers who place greater emphasize on the quality of bloggers now have the option to search for a good blogger in the pool of bloggers and make an offer. But I am not sure if advertisers would want to go through that process. Maybe they prefer the bloggers looking for them instead. Whatever that may be, the option is there and advertisers now have the opportunity to pick the best bloggers to review their products and services.

    Other features of SponsoredReviews include Automated Rating System which will make it easy for advertisers to find high quality blogs. Sponsored Reviews’s bidding system allows both advertisers and publishers to negotiate pricing although bloggers will be able to set their own prices with manual pricing. SponsoredReviews’s system will make recommendations based on their Automated Ratings System, but bloggers will be able to choose their own prices. Of course the final prices will have to be agreed by both advertisers and bloggers.

    So what are you waiting for? If you have good blogs, I would suggest that you register with SponsoredReviews and have an opportunity to monetize your blogs in a new way. Advertisers should also take advantage of the many features available to promote your products and services over the internet. Bloggers Earn Cash, Advertisers Build Buzz. I am off to seek more opportunities and get paid in two weeks time.. :)

    This is a sponsored post.

    Top Ten Bid, another new web directory by Alang

    Posted by CJCM on 4th April 2007

    Top Ten Bid

    Although we have never met in person, I have known Alang for as long as I am involved in blogging and internet business. It was from him that I learn how to earn money online through web directory and articles directory. Subsequently, we became partners where I am the editor for PDAs Review, a blog that is part of by Alang’s SZAB Network. Alang expertise and resourcefullness in web directory is second to none among Malaysians, if not the blogosphere. He had came up with many ideas of earning money through web directory. 50 Pages Website, Ventedoy are two of his unique ideas of web directory.

    Alang had just launched another interesting web directory concept called Top Ten Bid. I think you already know roughly what that means, but to know more I will let Alang does the telling himself. You can find how it works here at his blog (in Malay language) If you dont read Malay, worry you can read how it works here in English. The idea for Top Ten Bid is derived from DollarLinking.com,according to Alang.

    Yes, I have placed 3 bids for my three sites CJCMedia Network, CJCM and IT and Kuala Lumpur is Home. I think I am the first to place the bids there.

    Congratulation Alang on your new business idea.

    Introducing CJCMedia Network, Malaysia’s premier blog network

    Posted by CJCM on 24th March 2007

    CJCMedia Network, Malaysia’s premier blog networkEver since I got myself into blogging sometime in August 2006, I am totally hooked into it. What had initially been blogging just for fun had turned into something that is both fun and rewarding. Within a relatively short period of time, I have transformed from a hobby-blogger to semi-pro blogger .. :) having secured blogger positions for sites such as Gadgetell, Profy (Note: I have ceased to be an author there), Techzoogle and lately Kuala Lumpur is Home, a Home Turf Media blog.

    My involvement with Home Turf Media, a brand new city-based blog network, had sparked new interest in me in the area of setting up and managing a blog network. After some serious thinking and much research on the internet, I finally decided to launch my very own blog network. As a result, 12th February 2007, CJCMedia Network was born, although the ground works for the network had been going on for weeks prior to that.

    CJCMedia Network, the first Malaysian blog network I believe, is a proof of my committment and passion for blogging. My ambition is to spin this Malaysia’s premier blog network into something that all Malaysians can be proud of in the blog network arena. That of course will not come easy as there are a lot of aspects that need to be taken care of in developing the network.

    Although I am currently working to launch several sites authored by Malaysian-based bloggers, CJCMedia Network aims to pool together a network of talented bloggers from both Malaysia and the rest of the world.

    I really hope this network will receive much needed support from everyone especially Malaysians. If you would like to know how you can be part of CJCMedia Network, here is a good place to start. Stay tuned for more news about CJCMedia Network.

    Posted by CJCM on 7th March 2007

    Lots of cheques at Cheques Gallery

    Believe it or not, there are people who are making real money online… and there a lot of these internet marketers and bloggers who laughing all the way to their banks…. cashing in their cheques. And if there is one place online to see all these cheques …. it has to be Cheques Gallery. I got to know about this interesting site while reading about $700,000 Adsense Check over at romantika.name, one of the blog that I read every now and then.

    You should pay a visit to Cheque Gallery, read how much internet marketers and bloggers are making online and hopefuly be inspired by them. Cheques Gallery is barely two months old but looking at the comments posted, it already has garnered a streams of followers and loyal readers. Don’t be surprised if Cheques Gallery would one day be featuring it’s own cheque. Cheques Gallery is written by … who else but Mr Cheque. Have fun :)

    Update on SlashMySearch

    Posted by CJCM on 25th February 2007

    My unrealized income from SlashMySearchI blogged about earning some extra money using a search engine SlashMySearch before in this blog. Subsequently, the same post made it to Darren Rowse’s Speed Linking Reader Edition. Here are some updates about my account since I joined SlashMySearch program 13th Feb 2007.

    I had 11 affiliates signed up under Level 1. I had 5 affiliates signed up under my level 1 affiliates. My total earning so far is US$2.84603 and I am not using it as heavy as I should have. What do you think? OK, I agree its not big amount, yet…. but for a new program, it pays not bad at all I must say. Of course I still have to wait until I reach minimum amount for my first payment but I am keeping my fingers crossed. I hope SlashMySearch will walk their talk and pay all affiliates as promised. Have you joined? How is your earning so far? Please share with me your experience using SlashMySearch. If you haven’t joined, please click here to be part of the community that earn money using a search engine. Good luck!

    I made it to Darren Rowse’s Speedlinking Reader Submission

    Posted by CJCM on 17th February 2007

    Darren RowseDarren Rowse of ProBlogger had some trouble for this week’s Speedlinking project. He had lost some emails with links in it that were meant to be part of his Speedlinking entries. So he quickly setup a project to ask his readers to submit some links he could use for his Speedlinking post, but it was extremely tight in terms of deadline, about 9 hours away when I found out about it in the private forum of Home Turf Media, a network of city-based bloggers, where I am the host of Kuala Lumpur is Home. Thanks to David of Brisbane is Home for the tip-off, I immediately submit an entry about earning money through using a search engine which I already posted a few days back in my blog here.

    I didn’t really have high hope knowing Darren’s high standard so I wasn’t really expecting any miracle from it. However my hope went slightly up last night when I saw Darren’s face in my MyBlogLog widget, I knew Darren was checking on my post so I waited eagerly this morning and was pleasantly surprised that my submission was included in ProBlogger’s Speedlinking Reader Submission this week 17th Feb 2007. Thank you Darren for including me in your project. I have always enjoyed participating in ProBlogger’s project especially the Group Writing Project where I have participated twice. You can check it out here and here.
