Time Stamped Show Notes:

  • 01:00 – Nathan’s introduction to today’s show
  • 01:21 – Sean joins the show.
  • 02:53 – Blab is in beta. It’s like Skype, but it has a public forum feature that allows users to listen in on an interview or call-in.
  • 03:45 – The average daily active user is watching for a little over an hour a day.
  • 05:04 – People can tune into the conversation of CEO’s or other topics or people they care about.
  • 06:28 – Blab covers a lot of niche audiences such as RV’s and old book collecting.
  • 07:28 – Blab has a feature that allows more audience and broadcaster interaction.
  • 08:22 – Anyone can use the platform – from at-home hobbyists to professionals from big name companies.
  • 09:13 – Blab is privately funded – their business model is similar to that of TV, they plan to monetize with sponsors in the future.
  • 10:30 – The Blab team is aiming to grow big enough so that users can make a living off of broadcasting on the site.
  • 11:17 – Blab’s current goal is an increase of 7% of viewers every week.
  • 12:13 – Blab’s team consists of 15 members.

Famous 5

  • Favorite Book?- Rework by Fried and Hansson
  • What CEO do you follow?— Conor McGregor
  • What is your favorite online tool?— Slack
  • Do you get 8 hours of sleep?— No
  • If you could let your 20 year old self know one thing, what would it be?— Forget the classes, forget the grades. Build about 5 really great connections that’ll last you a lifetime at University.

3 Key Points:

  1. Blab is a media platform on which users can listen in on calls conducted by just about anyone (hobbyist to professional) on any variety of topics. There are also features that allow listener/broadcaster interaction.
  2. Blab is privately funded – in the future once they have enough viewers, they plan on running ads to monetize traffic.
  3. Blab is unlike Netflix and YouTube in that it’s a live stream and covers any variety of topics by any type of profession.

Resources Mentioned:

  • Edgar – Nathan uses Edgar instead of other scheduling tools for Twitter because Edgar cycles through content over and over (buffer/others you have to re-input content over and over – time consuming). In the last several months, Edgar has driven Nathan over 3728 clicks that he didn’t have to work or pay for.
  • @shaanvp – Shaan’s Twitter
  • Blab – Shaan’s business
  • Rework by Fried and Hansson– Shaan’s favorite business book
  • Conor McGregor– CEO Shaan follows
  • Slack – Shaan’s favorite online tool
