How Jonah Peretti and BuzzFeed Got to $850 Million | Re/code
BuzzFeed +500 people. Even if you want to slight the company as nothing more than a Reddit repackager, someone has to do that repackaging. But if you’re only looking at BuzzFeed as a media company, then that $850 million might seem optimistic. Last year, people around the company pegged BuzzFeed’s 2013 revenue at $60 million, and now they’re supposedly on track for $120 million. Which means Dixon and his co-workers at Andreessen Horowitz are likely valuing Jonah Perreti’s company at something like 10x trailing 12-month sales. Investors value the New York Times at 1.2x sales. Time Inc. is at 0.77x. Time Warner, which mints money, is at 2x. + Are There Internet Dialects?

Still, thank god, there is a gap and lets hope there will always be a gap. ++ !! "most revenues come from creating ads for other brands" !! ++

honing your craft, put the work in, grind it out, ... sort of the 10k hour rule by gladwell - sort of. // Part 2: // ++ THE GAP by Ira Glass - - hone your skill your craft by putting stuff out. period. // ++ “The most important possible thing you can do is do a lot of work.” [...] The question of what makes someone successful has occupied some of history’s greatest minds.
