Prism, a friend of mine who has been into computers since the early days of BBC micro (he still has 4) who learn't code, i believe was very different then (binary comes to mind) has for some time been earning £60,000 per year as a code breaker on corporate programs, he was running the team checking Lloyd Banks new internet banking before it went live, is also developing his own website for when he retires next year.
Long story short, i designed a website for his daughter when she left colledge 2 years ago as a professional photographer, using you guessed it VSD, it went live in under a month, gained its first order 3 months later and i think its 7 or 9 wedding bookings in last 12 months.
Tim started developing his site at about the same time doing it in html what ever number it was 3 years ago, not using a program like CC but all as he puts it hard coded
about three months ago he hit a problem, so went and had a look at the code in my designed site, and phoned me to say he wished he had listened when i suggested he looked at CC html editor.
in last 3 months he has started from scratch, re done the whole site, gone live, gained two bookings.
moral of this story, CC VSD & associated programs got this non techy non coder streets ahead of him and it took me less than a month to do what he has now done in 39 months of spare time.
And further more his daughter has taken a few thousand pounds, and my own site is just coming up to £100,000 (must update my sig)
However his clients comments is much nicer than mine, all matches his site etc. and his website is much better than his daughters in my opinion, but they are now running side by side on page 1 of google, so the war is on for who gets the bookings.
