It doesn't matter if you're already a professional web designer who wants to learn how to get more clients, or a complete "newbie" who has never touched a line of code... you will benefit greatly from reading this!
First, Let me tell you a little about myself. I have been designing websites for almost 10 years (that's like 40 in Internet years)! That's right, since 2000 I have been developing professional websites! But it wasn't easy... I was working 60, 70, and sometimes even 80 hours a week just to make ends meet. "Why was it so hard?", you ask. It was hard because I had nobody to teach me. I had to learn everything from trial and error.
But don't get me wrong... I love my job. I have no boss, I make my own hours, I sleep as late as I want, and I even make as much money as I want. But wasn't as easy as it sounds! I always had to deal with...
Clients not paying me on time...
I had a client that would only agree to paying me once the project was done... but after 2 months of hard work he refused to pay, saying he no longer had the money! Some customers would try to tell me my work wasn't "good enough" and they would try to get me to lower the price after the work was done. I had to come up with contracts even though I had no experience with the legal side of the business...
Having to compete against 13 year olds...
I found that a large portion of the web designers are teenagers willing to design sites for a heck of a lot less than I am! Clients would try to get me to lower my price because they said they could find someone willing to do it for $50! I had to find a way to convince them that you get what you pay for...
Trying to find more clients...
It was always a never-ending battle to find a consistent flow of clients to keep the money rolling in. I had to find a way to get clients to come to ME...
But now I know how to deal with those headaches!
...now it's much easier because I know all the tips and tricks of the business! But it took years of trial and error... years of wasted money... years of pulling my hair out of my head! If there was a place that could have taught me all these tricks in 2000 I would have made MILLIONS more than I did... this information is that valuable!!!
Now that I know all the secrets I work less hours and still make more money!
"So, What are these secrets?", you ask.
