Startup Monday: Entrepreneur of the Week – Philip DeFranco

I have decided to do a new weekly feature as part of Startup Monday – Entrepreneur of the Week. To kick things-off I wanted to feature one of my favorite entrepreneur’s and someone that I think has done an incredible job building a brand online. Philip DeFranco does some of the funniest and most interesting online videos on the planet. He has over 200,000 Twitter followers and uses a .TV domain as his main website and You Tube as his video platform of choice. If you’ve never seen Philip before just watch this video below and you’ll get the picture and probably have a few laughs.

I’d like to personally congratulate Philip on what he’s done. I’ve always been really entertained by his videos and think his style is unique and innovative. He has leveraged social media in an amazing way and built a great brand. Congrats Philip – you’re my very first Entrepreneur of the Week!

    Hmmm. Never heard of him. Plus, he’s pretty annoying.

    I used to watch him on YT when I first started my YT addiction. Then I went to rehab and found channels with much more potent entertainment value. So I am happy to say I’m no longer being “Phil’d In”.

    What about that was funny? That is a minute in my life I will never get back.

      Wow – interesting to see how many of you don’t like him. He is wildly popular both in the social media world and online video world. I think he’s pretty funny however everyone is entitled to their own opinion, for those who lost a minute of your life to this video I hope you were at least enjoying a beer or a glass of wine during that minute 🙂
