I don’t think he’s a Top Affiliate Marketer. The only link with affiliate marketing is the abuse of the ebay partner program.
The problem with affiliate marketing is that there isn’t much money in it. eBay pays about $70 million annually to its 26,000 affiliate marketers, according to court papers. The average payment is around $2,700 a year. Remove Hogan and Dunning from the equation — Hogan alone was 15% of eBay’s total payout — and the average payment drops even lower.
man, three years of supervised release. That sucks. A lot of people who have done time have said you’re better off with a few more months on the inside if you can knock off supervised release.
I was thinking the exact same thing.
In the federal system if you serve time you will always have some sort of supervised release usually 1,3 or 5 year terms. He is either really lucky or extremely unlucky as you usually do not see 5 months sentences I am curious what his PSI looked like.
