Your Own Web Site Design Business
Have 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.
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.
That 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.
Given 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.
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. ...Lauren has
now let us know she landed the job! (March 3rd 2004)"

To jump 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 bid.
This Web 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.
Business 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,
