My guest on the show today is Ariel Viera who runs an online platform called The Urbanist.
With the Urbanist, Ariel explores cities and culture around the world via live video on Facebook and through storytelling.
He goes live 4-6 times per week and in a very short amount of time has amassed over 7M video views.
He’s become such a successful live streamer that he was just recently
Nominated for a Shorty Award for Live Streamer of the year along with the likes of Vin Diesel, Dick Vitale, Scott Rogowsky from HQ Trivia and others.
What I love about Ariel and what he’s done with the Urbanist is he’s created an amazing engaged community on Facebook from scratch -- over 32K followers -- in a really short time.
And he generates revenue through sponsorships, donations, and video making services.
