I just want to give you all a heads up on some exciting new features we will be launching soon. We have taken your feedback into consideration.
1) Tier 1 user network contact list
You will be able to request and receive (we will sent it to you via email) a list of the names and email addresses of all users in your Tier 1 network i.e. people signed up directly under you. This will allow you to directly email those who have signed up under you, allowing you to encourage and motivate them to activate their accounts and login regularly.
2) Sign up Incentive
We were going to spend a bunch of money to promote and advertise AdGoggle. Then we figured that it would be better to give this money to our users! With the Sign Up Incentive, every single user that you invite and who signs up under you (and who activates their account) will earn you USD0.10. So if you sign up 100 activated users, you will earn USD10.00. You will have full details of your Sign Up Incentive in your Network report page.
3) Invite Link
All users will soon be provided their own unique AdGoggle invite link. Users who click on this link will be able to sign up immediately under you without having to type in the invite code on the Sign Up screen. The invite code will be automatically populated. Most importantly, this invite link WILL be able to be posted on Facebook! Stay tuned for this as this is going to be a game changer. Also, together with 2) above, you immediately earn money when any new user signs-up under you. So 2) and 3) combined is going to be a real income earner for all our users. Plus, if the people you invite also jumps on board wholeheartedly and invite their friends as well, you’ll also be earning Ad Incentives when people in your network click and view the ads!
4) Video ads
We will be launching video ads soon. With video ads, you yourself will get paid when you click and view the video ad. So you have ads that you can earn incentives on your own! Note that you will ALSO earn when people in your network click and view the video ad as well.
We are reducing the minimum cash out amount to USD20 (from USD100).
For your info, AdGoggle users collectively earned a total of USD112.11 in January 2013. And USD103.63 in February (as at 18 Feb). It’s not a large amount, but we plan to continue building this up to USD5,000 per month by end June.
We are also in the process of adding more ad networks so that users will have more ads to view. Moreover, we are adding video ads which will earn users themselves money when they click and watch the video ad.
ANNOUNCEMENT: AdGoggle has emailed all its users (pre-registered users included) announcing its launch. You too should have received this email. Make sure you go to the ‘Network’ page of the AdGoggle app (you need to sign in first) to check how many users you have in your AdGoggle network, and how much money you have earned!
AdGoggle has not yet sent out the email to all pre-registered users announcing the launch. We are still fine-tuning the app. Eg. we discovered that many users are entering their mobile phone numbers incorrectly and thus are not able to receive their SMS PIN to activate their accounts. So we are revising the user interface where users enter their mobile phone numbers to reduce such errors. We want to make sure that everything is working well before we email blast to all.
We also noticed that many people are posting their invite code on this blog and our Facebook page. This is not very effective because there are so many invite codes posted that a new user who visits these pages will probably not choose your invite code! We suggest you email your friends directly inviting them to sign-up at http://m.adgoggle.com (on their smartphones only). Remember to give them your invite code for them to use during sign up. You can also send FB messages to your friends, Twitter about it, post on your Blog (if you have one), post on Forums, post on other FB pages you are involved in, post on your Google+ page etc. All this will be more effective for you in growing your AdGoggle network.
Your AdGoggle invite code can be found under the blue ‘Invite’ link (top left hand corner) on the AdGoggle app, or when you sign in at http://www.adgoggle.com on your PC.
AdGoggle has LAUNCHED!
Watch a short intro video here.
AdGoggle is a mobile app that displays targeted and interest matching mobile ads that users engage with and spread virally, while providing them rewards to build the AdGoggle network.

AdGoggle — The Interest Graph Ad Network
All selected users have been sent an email with instructions. Beta testing will go on until Friday 11 January 2013 00.01 UTC (Thursday midnight UTC). After which we will need some time to compile all the beta testers’ feedback, bug reports etc, and make the necessary fixes and improvements. If all goes well, we hope to launch globally sometime during the week of 15 January 2013.
Announcement: We are experiencing some bugs with our partner ad networks after we transitioned our app to our mobile site. And due to the holiday season with many of their support team on leave, it is taking time for us to resolve these bugs.
We are thus not able to get the beta testing with our users done this week. Looks like the launch of the app will be further delayed for at least another 2 weeks (15th January 2013).
We apologize for the delay. Trust me, it’s extremely frustrating and downright stressful for us. We don’t want to let you guys down, but a lot of things are outside our control, and we just have to roll with the blows and keep on believing.
