I came across this headline last night: "Gwyneth Paltrow's lifestyle website Goop 'faces $1.6M in debt' as it continues to lose money" I thought, "How in the world is a website in debt? It only costs $4.50 a month for hosting." Even if you are running a huge site, it should not be over $100-$150 a month for hosting. You may even have an email list that may run you $50 a month if you have lots of subscribers. If you are doing e-commerce, maybe another $200 a month for a nice set up. All of that together is barely $500 a month. I clicked the link, and what I read was just sad. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbi...oop-faces-1-6M-debt-continues-lose-money.html Why is this website being run like a corporation? I cracked up laughing when I read the site had "investors". The site was stupid from the beginning, but how did she manage to mess up something so basic? This is something that can literally be ran from your laptop or iPhone while at home watching soap operas. Three people in the comments even said: "This is a business? I could run this from my sofa with an email listserv." "You're kidding. That website that everyone makes fun of has shareholders? Who? Why?" "No idea how a lifestyle blog can be losing that much money. The only costs are for staff salaries--and I'm guessing that you'd barely need 1 full time employee to write and maintain it." She needs to come search these forums and learn how to hook up a website that will make money. This is embarrassing.
