Thanks for the post. That is impressive that they can attract roughly 2 million visitors a month just on videos.
Does any one else think black is a bad logo choice for a health company? I guess not if you consider that the logo was probably “professionally” designed by a 9-year old kid…
This is the amateurish “business” approach: put up a badly designed site with something “health” on it, load it with low quality crass ads for money, get venture capital… buy nice cars for the “staff” and you are on your way: to the dead pool.
