OK, so, how cool is this?
A few years ago, Dan Andrews and a buddy decided to start a podcast – The Lifestyle Business Podcast. They had no previous built-in fan base and no traditional media audience. They started it from scratch.
Now, the podcast has over 1,000,000 downloads, has received 200+ 5-star reviews on iTunes, and is often ranked as a top 25 business podcast in Apple’s directory.
How about the business side (it’s one thing to build an audience, and another thing to build a PROFITABLE audience)? Dan experimented with many different monetization models and in today’s episode, he reveals which one “worked” for him (and how they are generating money). Plus, Dan has all kinds of cool insights and more. Listen below.
PS: I’ve gotten a few (ahem, like 3948855858.8) emails lately saying something like, “David! I’ve noticed that the last few episodes have been audio only. Are you getting rid of video?”. The answer is a resounding, “Nope!”. In fact, quite the opposite. Actually, we have a brand new format coming very, very soon. I don’t want to reveal too much more (tee-hee). But trust me, it shall be epic.
I use RISE partner Wistia for video hosting because they rock. Check ’em out.

This Episode Of The Rise To The Top Is Exclusively Sponsored By GoToMeeting:
A few weeks ago we made a big decision at The Rise To The Top to move to a really cool software/business program for all our emails, customer management, etc. called Office Auto Pilot. A big migration like this can be a huge pain in the butt, but I was able to meet with the OAP team with the greatest of ease thanks to GoToMeeting. They showed me exactly how the software worked, how we could use it, etc. by sharing with me video, their screens, and more all on GoToMeeting. GoToMeeting is super essential for any mediapreneur.
