Doing things on a budget is what I am really good at, especially when it comes to digital services.
I try to squeeze the most possibilities I have out of every cent I get to make this work. Not to many people in the world would ever start a business off this model because surprises seems to always happen later down the road so it is a gamble I am not going to lie, but we have been very lucky from the start.
To secure the operations we need roughly a little under¬†$400.00 usd¬†a month so far.
Here is the cost breakdown,
1.¬†Email Servers¬†for JoshWho TV Notifications and JoshWho Email service¬†$62.00 usd¬†a month
2.¬†Cost of keeping¬†Loop Social Network¬†going¬†$47.00 usd¬†a month
3.¬†Dedicated servers¬†running the main JoshWho TV Platform costs¬†$243.00 usd¬†a month.
4.¬†Cloud Storage¬†which is a growing floating variable that will continue to go up the more videos get added to it. So far the average monthly price is at¬†$57.00 usd¬†a month but will continuously keep rising the more storage that gets used. ¬†Currently past 13 terabytes of video.
5.¬†Simple Domain¬†Name¬†Fees which average from¬†$12.00 usd¬†to¬†$20.00 usd¬†dollars a peace and only need payed once a year.
Just trying to keep this as simple as possible and want people to know what their donations are contributing to. We could not do any of this without you all so I and Every one else appreciates all the support we can get for this, and thank you all for your time.

One thought on “Cost Breakdown to Run the JoshWho Network”
Hey! I came across your platform from a BitChute video you did on building a Roku Channel. I LOVE THIS PLATFORM!! It really is the best and most affordable video platform out there for Free Speech. I’m trying it out for a month before I commit to a monthly support….but so far so good!! I love all the possible monetization features. A Couple of suggestions:
1- Is there a way to build a “Super Chat” feature? I know you already have the donate link feature, but this would be a win-win if you could somehow incorporate, and take a cut of the Super Chats. This would make the platform BLOW AWAY Rumble…although like i said its really good already.
2- A Way of incorporating VAST ads. This would be a deathblow to some of the other smaller video hosts that do not support any type of advertising.
3- Some type of Referral Program. I’m already recommending it to other creators.
4- A “Studio” Type of Design for the App.
I know this is a lot to ask, and I don’t expect all or even any of it….just letting you know from a creator standpoint what we are looking for. GREAT WORK MAN!
