    Hey Ryan! Congrats!

    Some unsolicited UX advice from an industry UXer: Your site is pretty dope for the most part, but I would advise considering playing around with the headers and content – right now, the content below your headers conflict with the header weights and makes the page a bit hard to follow fluidly from top to bottom.

    In particular, if you look at the "How does it work" section on your home page, the blue links, then the blue quote line, then the left justified "Step One" etc., and the large numbers all appear to have the same visual hierarchy.

    I think the blue links can stay, but I'd 1.) reduce the weight of the blue quotation line, 2.) left justify and reduce the size of the step numbers, and 3.) place "step one" in-line with "Submit your startup,' etc.

    Just my opinion!

    Great site overall, otherwise – proof is in your success :D

    Nah. My blatant, black & white comment was definitely an emotionally charged response to how strongly I feel against the OP.

    I dig games; I don't dig microtransactions.

    This is dark UX and should be avoided. The goal of a product is to solve a need, not create one.

    i think it's more likely they defaulted to what they use it for. i think it was a mistake on their part.

    I'd switch out the experiences, then, or add another contact reason in the list. Good stuff nonetheless. I like your site overall, albeit it could use more character.

    Unpopular opinion – I love gigantic header images, and I'm being serious. It's pleasing the whole way through the scroll, and especially when it's an awesome photo like the one you put up.

    Offering prices on one page, then when I navigate to choose which option I want to discuss, no prices are listed – the context is lost.

    Bad customer experience IMO – I want to know how much it costs throughout the experience, especially at "checkout."

    Solid. The case studies work fine as they are, but I'd consider adding more reasons why, even briefly if possible.

    Have you tried formatting the hero header text centered opposed to left aligned?
