After you’ve figured out how to create some websites, you probably are going to want to figure out how to make money with them. This isn’t as hard as you might think, but you have to have some information first. Here you’ll get some tips so that you can do great things with your web design.

Business Card

Get a few ads up on a classified ads website. These are so simple to use that all you have to do is sign up with your email account and you should be good to go. Find the computer section and let people know what your prices are. However, you have to be sure that you read through the rules and that you abide by them so that you don’t get your ad pulled. You may just want to share your email address and not your phone number until you get to know a person so people don’t just randomly call you.

Business Cards Online

See if you know anyone that could help you with spreading the word that you’re offering web design services. Ask your friends, family members, and coworkers if they know anyone that could use a website. Make sure to ask them if they know of any businesses around town that don’t have a website. If you can get people to tell others about you, then people that need sites are going to trust you more since they probably trust the person telling them about you. Word of mouth advertising is very powerful!

Computer Section

Business cards are something to get made for yourself when you’re doing web design. When you get these made, you have to be sure they’re of high quality. People don’t want to see the same business card they’d get from an insurance agent or something. You have to make them know that you’re a good web designer because you’re able to even develop business cards that look great. You can find people that make business cards online, or you may be able to locate a printing place in your area.

Coworkers

Call up the local businesses in your area and let them know about the services you’re offering. A lot of the businesses that are local aren’t going to have anything like a website because they just can’t afford to get one made. This is a fantastic way to get a start because you can charge them just a little money because these sites will help you build your portfolio. Once you make a site, you’ll be Web Designable to show that off to other clients who are wondering how your work looks. This means that no matter what you charge, you need to do your best in case you want to show that site off later to potential clients.

Email Account

If you do your best to get clients with the above tips, then you’re going to have a fairly easy time. Getting the first one is the hardest, but after that things should go a lot easier for you. Get started now and expect great things later!

    What Are The Best Graphic And Web Design Companies To Visit Near Seattle Center? I am part of a Graphic Design Club at a Washington State community college. We are currently planning a trip to Seattle in early June 2011, and we want to tour several graphic and web design companies while we are there! We will be touring on June 3rd, 2011.

    Can anyone recommend places we should tour? Anyone out there actually work for one of the companies? We will be staying at a hotel in Seattle Center and will need the companies to be within walking distance, or be able to use public transportation to get there. Thanks for the help!

    • Google companies, see who you like or looks good and contact them. Many web design companies will not allow visitors without appointments and also many may be much smaller than they look online. You’ll want to visit them based on the type of projects they complete so looking at their own websites will be the first thing to do. Then see if they are based near your hostel.

    What Is The Most Cost Effective Way To Print Good Quality Business Cards At Home? I design websites for people, and would like to offer Business Card printing as a little additional service. I’m looking for a cost effective way to print high quality Business Cards. I don’t mind paying out for a bit of printing kit if it’s pretty reasonably priced. I’ll obviously also need some software. I’m assuming I could just design the cards in Photoshop.

    Any advice would be helpful. Thanks.
    It’s more the hardware I need advice on.

    • If you already own Photoshop and don’t want to spend money on additional software, then yes, you can set up your business cards in Photoshop.

      InDesign however, would make your life a lot easier – it’s included in several of the CS bundles – so if you use other Adobe software you may even already own it.

      You will be able to combine text and graphics much more easily, add trim marks etc. in exact x/y co-ordinates and also be able to accurately step and repeat your cards so you can print a full sheet of them without wastage.

      Additional Info
      OK, all you really need in that case is a decent quality colour laserprinter. Personal favourites are Xerox and Epson. Probably the most important feature to you will be its ability to handle various heavy-weight stocks as your focus will be on cards.

    Publishing Bank Account Information On Website Is Dangerous? If Yes, How Can Someone Missuse It? I am selling domain/hosting and web design services. Whats the possible threats if i display my bank account information for my clients for sending payment?

    • I agree with Jeff. Open a merchant account with paypal or alert pay etc. Even set up your own E-commerce account so nobody see’s nothing. You know on the net with the right info you just have to hit the submit botton to sign. Food for thought.

    How Do I Build A Site That People Can Post Things On? A user would have to sign up but could post stuff on it. It’s functions like a forum but it doesn’t have different categories. It’s just one uniform message board. Anyone have any ideas or a site to point me in the right direction? And no I’m not interested in web design services.

    Thanks :)
    example sites:

    secrettalk.com
    memepix.com

    Basically where a member can post text or pictures. Other users can comment on that post.
    By member I mean a member of the site I’m trying to build.

    • I am not totally sure what you are after but you could start by looking at WordPress. Its free and very flexible.

    What Can One Charge For When Building A Website? What are some of the things that you an be charged & upselled for in web design services with their respective prices? (ie web design, hosting, seo, social networking, ect . . .[This is all I can think of])

    I want to look out for all hidden costs.

    • You got a pretty good list. You can do away with seo and learn it on your own to save a lot.Was wondering if you are the one offering this or the one availing the service.Goodluck anyway!

    Is Web Design Still A Good Business? How Much Income Do You Expect A Month? Do companies use web design service from outsourcing or hire a web designer as an employee these days?

    • I agree with the other forum member(s) that most web design services are offered by a Media Agency who, in turn, employs a staff web designer to handle client projects.

      Usually, any web design generated income is calculated on a set completed project price with a monthly maintenance fee calculated on how much time will it take to update/revise the client’s webpage which often requires the updating of specific databased webpages. All web design charges are calculated in tenths of an hour. For example: 15 minutes = 0.25; 30 minutes = 0.50; 45 minutes = 0.75 and 1 hour = 1.00.

      Most in-house Media Agency employees, and especially web designers are not very well paid and earn an average yearly salary of $30,000 to $35,000.

      The real top earners are not web designers but SEO specialists who earn a percentage of a client’s gross annual income. This is a standard compensation formula since the high placement of a client’s website on major search engines often requires active manpower to maintain the high rankings and ultimately, the client will benefit from high volume web traffic to their website. A typical SEO specialist whose portfolio is any number of Fortune 500 clients, may earn as much as $125,000 to $150,000 a year.

      Good luck!

    Any Website Where I Can Trade My Web Design Services For A DSLR Camera? Any website where I can trade my web design services for a DSLR camera?
    I need a Canon or Nikon DSLR camera, mid or pro level. Since cash is tight I had an idea to trade my services as a web designer for a new or used camera. I couldn???t find any deal in barterquest.com.
    Can you help me finding a barter website or a place where I can post my offer?
    Thanks

    • I can understand why barter is a compelling way to exchange services for things like the tools you need for photography, but in the end, you really need to set your fees for the web design services so that you can buy what you need in the way of cameras.

    Web Design Services.? Is there any way we can learn web design online?

    • Yes I learned web design online. I now know HTML HTML5 CSS CSS3 jQuery PHP and SQL.

      Go to .

      http://www.w3schools.com/

      They have tutorials in every web language and they are the masters of the web so to speak so if you learn by them your coding correctly. And then simply scout the web for tutorials on specific tasks.

      Download.

      Notepad++
      WAMP

      Both are free to use with no trials. Notepad++ is for you to code in and WAMP is a server so you can create log in scripts registration forms with PHP.
      Need help send us a message good luck.

    Is This Okay Pricing For Web Design Services’s? ( My websites are built using Dreamweaver, Photoshop and a bit of Flash )

    - 5-8 pages
    - custom design
    - contact form
    - hosting
    - .co.uk or .com domain
    - email accounts
    - flash header ( optional )

    ??350 exlcuding domain and hosting charges? – not too sure whether to include in pricing or not.

    so in total ??350 basically.

    This is basically called a brochure site.

    Thanks,

    ASH!

    • It really would depend on the level of detail the custom design work includes. If I was already using dreamweaver for other sites I would only outsource design projects to somebody who will deliver all the dreamweaver files. Same for flash. It’s much like expecting all source code for a programming project. You want to be able to quickly open the project in dreamweaver so you or somebody that you hire can make changes. It’s also important to know if there are any restrictions on re-use of the graphics, photos, flash, media, etc. components delivered with the design. You don’t want to pay a lot of money and then find out that much of the material is licensed to you rather than owned by you

    What Is Web Designing?

    • Web design is a process of conceptualization, planning, modeling, and execution of electronic media content delivery via Internet in the form of Markup language suitable for interpretation by Web browser and display as Graphical user interface (GUI)…………

      The intent of web design is to create a web site — a collection of electronic files that reside on a web server/servers and present content and interactive features/interfaces to the end user in form of Web pages once requested. Such elements as text, bit-mapped images (GIFs, JPEGs, PNGs), forms can be placed on the page using HTML/XHTML/XML tags…… Displaying more complex media (vector graphics, animations, videos, sounds) requires plug-ins such as Flash, QuickTime, Java run-time environment, etc. Plug-ins are also embedded into web page by using HTML/XHTML tags.

      Improvements in browsers’ compliance with W3C standards prompted a widespread acceptance and usage of XHTML/XML in conjunction with Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) to position and manipulate web page elements and objects. Latest standards and proposals aim at leading to browsers’ ability to deliver a wide variety of media and accessibility options to the client possibly without employing plug-ins.

      Typically web pages are classified as static or dynamic.

      Static pages don't change content and layout with every request unless a human (web master/programmer) manually updates the page.

      Dynamic pages adapt their content and/or appearance depending on end-user's input/interaction or changes in the computing environment (user, time, database modifications, etc.) Content can be changed on the client side (end-user’s computer) by using client-side scripting languages (JavaScript, JScript, Actionscript, etc.) to alter DOM elements (DHTML). Dynamic content is often compiled on the server utilizing server-side scripting languages (Coldfusion, ASP, JSP, Perl, PHP, Python, etc.). Both approaches are usually used in complex applications.

      With growing specialization within communication design and information technology fields, there is a strong tendency to draw a clear line between web design specifically for web pages and web development for the overall logistics of all web-based services.

    How Much Should I Charge For A Decent Web Design Service? So I’m going freelance, been designing for about 3 years. How much would you be prepared to pay for a decent looking website?

    • I think web designers charge too much. For a complete website I would say, depending on your resume, $150-200 USD with at least 6 months support. But if you are just starting out you should probably charge a little less at first. Unless you are doing something for a big company.. lol
