I would be very surprised if this person stays in business.

Technically, someone who builds a company and hires employees does relatively the same thing as he’s obviously not paying his employees exactly the amount everything cost to design.

But I’ve spoken to enough business owners who’ve had work done by people like this to know that they are never ever spoken about positively (usually it’s “thank God, because I hate those guys” types of comments).

I know a couple of guys who did this very thing – they setup a business in web marketing and accumulated clients without actually knowing how any of it works. They have experience in advertising but that’s it. They can never deliver what the client is actually looking for beyond what I call a “starter site”. Clients get frustrated and move on (to me in some cases :P).

So yeah, there are people who can make a living doing this kind of thing, but not many are actually successful.
