Is it worthwhile for Dan from a business standpoint? Is that amount of money it will cost worth it? Will he get more readers and subscribers?

I am 100% certain it will add a lot more readers, my first suggestion, split the website into at least 4 sections, 1 for general deals, 2 airfare deals, 3 credit card deals, 4 blog posts and TR's

Another suggestion, the site is currently built in a very narrow way, I think the general webpage should be wider

No need, Dan should follow and we are good?...
Should I add a poll to ask people's opinion?

I recall Dan writing somewhere that it's a $100k investment and not worth the return. Maybe TimT can find it.
