Never said you did, but you don’t have personal experience, while I do and I share it.
Premium membership and mastermind group is good, but those are just fancy names for message boards. While I don’t want to diminish your value, the fact you paid somewhere to post doesn’t give any authority.
Mediavine and adthrive are doing very similar to what Hooligan Media does, the only difference it is much easier to get into Hooligan and have better results that both networks mentioned (I worked with all three).
I am connected through GAM as an MCM and they can manage my inventory, I also got a message about MCM and something about managing my inventory by HM. I assume this won’t be possible unless they are partner.
What you shared is not CPM nor RPM, it’s EPMV which is a different metric. Hooligan is showing the CPM revenue instead. While CPM is a rate per 1k impressions, the RPM is what you earn per 1k impressions, while EPMV is what you earn per 1k visits, not impressions. Thus, your CPM can vary for that particular 1k impressions/visits, so I personally find CPM much better and easier to understand and work with.
In my case I can generate 500k impressions from a 20k visits because I run a quiz site using Quizé plugin and I can generate over 30 page views per 1 visit.
This is my viewable CPM as of today:
