    How do I make money off Web Design?

    how do I sell it/ make money off it?

    anyone have a plan?

    sometimes working for 40 hours in a place is too much. however maybe interviewing and then working remotely could work.

    does anyone know how to generate sales or make money full time off webdesign?

    Really tough because the term 'web design' is very abstract.

    You have the actual web pages themselves (what people see and interact with), and then you have all of the scripting, programming and software behind the web site (PHP, SQL, JQUERY, AJAX, all of the javascripting, css, server stuff ... etc).

    It's really hard for one person to be proficient at ALL aspects of web design. Some 'web designers' specialize only in doing wordpress sites for example. Some people are programmers and partner with web design companies to only do back-end scripting.

    Are you interested in the front-end (what people see and interact with), or back-end (the programming required to make it all work)?

    Add to this, is the server itself. You could be working with your own webhost server that you built at home or a business, or you can pay for a webhost account on an online shared webhost (like GoDaddy). What you have the ability to do is different with each method of hosting. Diving into this topic requires a whole new set of skills and knowledge.

    You might be an amazing programmer and know everything about SQL databases, PHP, or general scripting. When you interview, you will be given a task to prove your skills. You could get a job working at home for that company, but you will only be doing the programming for a small piece of a website.

    If you look at people in India advertising cheap websites and scripting ... there are hundreds of them looking for work. Even when they offer almost nothing to get clients ... they struggle for business.

    What skills do you offer that someone would be willing to pay you for? Why would they hire you over anyone else?

    Tough questions.
