Dani Horowitz started DaniWeb back when she was in her Sophomore year of college obtaining her B.S. in Computer Science and minoring in Information technology. Despite only $20 startup costs for a domain name and hosting, over the past ten years, she's single-handedly grown DaniWeb into a thriving community and one of the most popular IT publications on the Internet today. DaniWeb LLC has been bootstrapped all the way from her bedroom at her parents' house into professional office space at the prestigious RXR Plaza in Uniondale, NY, and today sees an average of nearly 9 million pageviews monthly, and is growing at the rate of nearly 1000 new members daily.
Dani is an expert in online advertising, digital media, SEO, LAMP development, social media marketing and everything revolving around online communities. Since 2006, she's been actively speaking on AdSense and contextual advertising panels at the Search Engine Strategies conferences in New York, San Jose and Chicago. She also acts as a guest lecturer at various Industry meetups around NYC, including giving an hour-long impromptu presentation in which she opened up DaniWeb's live Google Analytics data during a Data Stories meetup at Google's NYC headquarters. When DaniWeb was badly hit by the Google Panda algorithm update, she became known for being the posterchild of Google Panda recovery, being the first publicly documented site to completely recover more than 120% of traffic.
Back in 2005, she became well known within the forum industry for authoring the first free mod_rewrite hack (SEO plugin) for the vBulletin 3.x forum system. Her experience spans from coding the backend of the site in PHP/MySQL (DaniWeb runs off of a proprietary platform she architected herself) to being the lead advertising salesperson, landing everything from large, direct agency deals with big names to spot buys with ad networks and mid-size site representation firms. All the while, she leads the community and does all of the front-end development and SEO.
Let Dani's ten years of industry experience work for you. For the first time ever, Dani has decided to let others in on her secrets. Dani is different than consultants who make a living consulting for other businesses. While it may sound corny and cliche, she doesn't just talk the talk, but she walks the walk. She's not only been successful before, but she continues to be a success, keeping up with every nuance of the industry because she has to.
Upon scheduling your phone consultation, Dani will devote time to researching and analyzing your company in depth. During your phone call with her, you can pick her brain about anything you'd like, from SEO to community building to traditional advertising. She won't hold back, and almost nothing is off limits.
Consultations are currently at an introductory rate of $500 for the first half-hour, and then $100 for each additional half-hour after that. Calls can be scheduled one-on-one or as group conferences. If you are in the New York area, consultations can also be done in-person at the DaniWeb LLC office on Long Island. Sorry, but due to her busy schedule with DaniWeb, Dani currently does not take on any extended-length projects. Please send an email to or call 516 222-1700 to schedule your consultation with Dani.
