First, wow...the new forum is awesome. Good job Allen and the Warrior team. Good job to the community for making this so worthwhile. I dont have many posts but I have been here for 3 years. So much good stuff.
Anyway, to the question at hand. Does design indicate your success?
Im asking because I have seen so many ads that claim that the site owner made 1, 10, 100 million dollars online yet the site looks awful. Not strategically awful but simply low budget, dit awful.
As a designer, I am a bit of a design snob, I'll admit to that but if I made 1 million dollars selling something, I would surely hire somebody to at least make my site look strategically bad.
So, seeing so many of these awful looking sites, I guess my real question is, are there really this many scammers out there in the IM community?
