I also like the fact that Killersites.com/directory offers website design leads as a service to the firms listed there. There isn't much information about the leads, except that they cost $25 to receive, and that they are free for prospective customers to submit.
The owner of the site should provide more details about this service, but he does provide instructions on how to contact him for more information.
There are two things that I don't like about Killersites.com/directory. I personally tend to avoid sites and businesses with the word "Killer" in their names. I think that the word "Killer" is used too casually in our society. I don't know why anyone would want to be associated with a killer, and I don't think that branding yourself as a killer is good for business. I realize that in this context the word "Killer" is used as slang, and that it actually has a different meaning, but did the person who came up with the name for this site ever think about people who don't use or understand slang, and what their impressions might be?
I also don't understand the frog logo and what it has to do with killers or websites. I don't have a problem with frogs, and the frog is nicely illustrated. I just can't make the connection between the frog and the rest of the site. Maybe it's one of those poisonous frogs? But still...
