Well known online marketer starts a blog that uses his inmate number.
You might not know Shawn Hogan by name, but it’s possible you’ve heard about him.
He runs the Digital Point marketing forum. He also made a mint from affiliate marketing.
How he made much of that money in affiliate marketing ended up landing him in prison. He made tens of millions of dollars from eBay’s affiliate program, but eBay later said that he did it by cookie stuffing.
Hogan alleged that eBay knew exactly how he was making money all along.
He ended up facing criminal charges and did a plea bargain that sends him to prison for 5 months.
Inmate numbers as domain names. Now that’s a market I’ve never thought of.
