This is just you sharing your landing page and bragging about how well your business is doing. Congrats on your success, though, and I expect some interesting discussion about the business model in the comments at least.
How does payment work internally? Is everyone just a 1099 that you feed work to? How do you deal with international payroll?
How do you source designers and assign work?
I mention "us" on the website for two reasons:
It's weird to say "I" in this case because to a client it isn't natural to wrap your head around the fact there is one person behind the business.
Secondly, when I built the service, it was my full intention of also building a team behind it (designers, customer care, etc.).
I could change the website copy to reflect it's a one man show, but I look at it like at the end of the day as long as you're getting the service you signed up for, that's all the client really cares about or needs to know.
If you run it all by yourself, why do you write "us" everywhere?
That seems very cheap. It doesn't take much for that to be negative margin right? What am I missing?
In this case it's clearly not viable because someone could easily hit a limit for design requests where it's just not possible to fulfil them on the budget. ~$500 is nothing like a months worth of unlimited design requests even if you only make a few requests per day.
