Start Your Own Web Design Business
you ever thought about working from home? If you have, you
know that the majority of the so called "work at home"
jobs are scams. After being laid off from my telecommuting
job I found myself looking for another at home job to replace
it. After you've worked from home for a while, it's hard to
go back to the corporate 9-5. In my experience, most of the
work at home jobs out there appeared to be scams. You shouldn't
have to pay and employer to work from home.
best part of the meeting was when he said "I don't
know if I will be able to afford you", even after
seeing we ran a home-based business. Overall I am extremely
pleased. The kit was definitely worth the money I paid.

thought I'd be smart and sign up with a website that specialized
in work at home jobs. I Googled a website that promised to
give you leads from employers who were looking specifically
for people to work from home. The home page listed a lot of
national companies (Bank of America, American Express, etc.).
It appeared that these companies routinely posted jobs on
the web site. All I had to do was buy a yearly membership
and I'd have access to those awesome jobs. Those national
companies may have been known to hire people to work from
home but I quickly found out that they did NOT post any jobs
on this website. The membership was a total waste of my money.
To sum it up, it was a scam. Were there jobs posted on the
web site? Yes, but the jobs were for telemarketers and sales.
Nothing for a computer professional. It bugged me that the
same stale jobs would be listed each day as if they were fresh!
you are looking for a legitimate work from home job, consider
Web Site Design. The beauty of this business is that it requires
low start up costs. The only office equipment you would need
would be a good computer, an Internet connection and website
design software. The web design software I recommend are Macromedia
Dreamweaver (html editor) and Macromedia
Fireworks (graphics editor). Microsoft
Front Page and Adobe Photoshop
are also excellent choices. If you lack web site design skills,
don't fret. The Internet is jam packed with free tutorials
and advice on everything you would need to know about web
site design and development. You would only be limited by
your desire to learn. You can also purchase professional
website templates to give you a jump start on designing
web sites for your customers.
being said, web site design is a very exciting field to be
in. The technology rapidly changes so there is always something
new and exciting to learn, it's a great outlet to release
your creativity, you can make a lot of money quickly, and
the best reason of all is that you can work from any location
including at home in your PJs.
all of these reasons, many people wonder how to get started
designing web sites for profit. As I said before, it takes
very little money to start a successful online business. Once
you learn how to design professional web sites (or use web
templates), your only obstacle will be to market your
business and win jobs. Sounds easy, but it's not. There are
many web site development firms out there who never win bids
on projects. You could search the Internet for advice on winning
web site design jobs. You can search for advice from business
owners who are out there running successful web site design
companies. This is a good approach but it does take time.
start running your own successful web site design business,
I recommend purchasing a Web Design Business Kit. It's a fact
that presenting yourself as a web design professional will
aid in wining website design jobs. If you are unprofessional
your clients will pick up on this and you will not get the
Design Business Kit guides you through the process of establishing
your own successful website design business. The Kit contains
books, binders and a cd that will allow you to learn by example
and at your own pace. The Web Design Business Kit will give
you insider knowledge from Brendon Sinclair, who built an
extremely successful Web Design Firm from the ground up. He
once made $250,000 in one night from one of his Websites.
Sound impossible? In web design it really isn't. It's unlikely
that you'll pull in that much with your first job, but you'll
be building a solid foundation of knowledge that will enable
you to win jobs.
Kit totally guides you through the process of managing your
own successful web site design firm. The Kit contains over
64 business forms that a busy web site designer will need
daily to do business, bid on jobs, and present a professional
approach to clients. You'll also receive access to detailed
walk-thru’s on handling every important client contact you’ll
ever have. You will have confidence and knowledge and will
be able to win the bid on projects. I wish I had discovered
the Web Design Business Kit before I started my business.
Even established website design companies can benefit from
this Business Kit. Before you make up your mind,
