Web site design is fun, and can earn you a great income if you're talented at it. And the good news is that there are many free resources on the Internet to help you learn what you need to know...everything from tutorials to free programs, from content to graphics. You can learn basic HTML and design elements, and how to price and advertise your work.
If you are an experienced web designer, you could make your own home based job out of your knowledge and experience by creating websites for others.
You could also create your own website and offer your own products and services to your website visitors.
If you are experienced, you can register and apply for verified work-at-home jobs & freelance projects in your field.
Some ideas are web design rules, tips, tools, resources, product reviews, message boards where you could answer questions to help people having problems and issues with their sites or design problems, etc.
You could also use affiliate programs to generate a revenue from your site.
To begin, simply register for a free account, choose the products, services, or companies that are relevant to your website's theme, or might be useful to your visitors, and you can then sell advertising space and generate income from your website.
There is more to Web design than just learning HTML, but with practice, you can become good enough to design Web sites for others and get paid for it!
Some good Web Design rules to follow:
Learn what works on the Web, and what doesn't. Don't load someone's site down with graphics and animations - that only causes their page to load slowly, and visitors won't stick around. Instead, use only what you need to spark up the look, and concentrate on content.
Be honest with businesses about how long it will take you to design their site. Don't be overly optimistic and tell them you can get the job done in an unrealistic amount of time just to get the job.
Research Web design companies, and see how they price their work before you decide how much to charge. Don't wait until someone wants to hire you to decide how much you will charge them. Have a solid price list written out for your reference if they should call. Even if you aren't going to offer set rate plans, you still need some idea of how much you'll be charging.
Don't take on a job you can't do. If a customer wants something that is beyond your ability, be honest with them. If you start promising businesses that you can do the work, then don't deliver, your reputation will suffer and your business is sure as over.
If your skills aren't very well developed, only take on smaller jobs until you are more skilled. Consider doing jobs for non-profit groups at a very discounted rate until your skills improve. Don't stop researching and learning.
Always check your work. Use the spell-check and grammar-check programs you have. Always proof read for mistakes.
You can get a good idea of what looks good online by visiting sites that don't look good. Decide what you don't like about them, and don't repeat the mistake.
