Dan BenjaminDan Benjamin didn’t want to “just” start one show online about technology. He wanted to create an empire. An Internet broadcasting network with a viable business model and all kinds of unique shows.

And Dan has climbed the mountain. is his network and features shows such as The Pipeline, The Big Web Show and others, that collectively are downloaded 120,000 time PER WEEK (yes, per week).

The amazing part? Dan has created this from scratch without a multi-million dollar budget (contrast that with CNN who lost hundreds of millions of dollars before they became profitable). Now that is .

In this interview, Dan tells us a bit about how he did it, including the overall vision, business model, what has worked/what hasn’t and much more.

I’ll definitely have to have Dan back on the show soon to talk more about marketing and other goodies. He is a wealth of knowledge on the subject and we can all learn from him (and on a personal note, since we are expanding programming soon…spoiler alert…I can pick his brain about it, hehe).

Enjoy and looking forward to your thoughts.

OK, buying a printer isn’t the most sexy thing in the world. I get it. But, when you need one you should definitely buy it from . Why? Two reasons: 1. Founder Bruce Gibbs is a total bootstrapped entrepreneur and supporting entrepreneurs is always a good thing. 2. They have revolutionized service in a (friendly way of putting it) not-so-service friendly industry. In fact, mention RISE and you get 6 months free service. Sweet.

Good news! You can now get RISE on your iPhone, iPad, etc. Woohoo for mobile.

  • I’d love if you had Dan back to discuss his startup’s initial success or how he has attracted the types of hosts (including high profile ones) for his shows.
