"We have an established model that allows us to launch in a new market within two months and be profitable within 18 months."
The Ryans are awesome! I was particularly impressed with their two acquisitions, as 6am recognizes the value of local content and just how hard it is for such a niche enterprise to survive, let alone thrive. I used to build websites for local clients and, sadly, only one of them recognized the need for ongoing promotion. (It's the only one still viable today!)
As for the media concept, This is what Facebook pages were supposed to be. But, as the Ryans pointed out, The FB model is too siloed and prevents casual users from seeing all that there is to see. I wish them the best as we march forward with our always-connected lives. :)
