    Companies to AVOID as you succeed in your FASTLANE...

    HOT! OFF-TOPIC 
    No, ManageWP was acquired by GoDaddy. And, surprisingly, even though there's not been a single user-facing enhancement to the platform since the 2016 acquisition, the platform has not been butchered as one would expect after being acquired by a company like GoDaddy.

    Web design price list

    How are they finding you? And what are you doing to attract only these price-conscious prospects?

    LLC and Corp Formation and Registered Agent Service in all 50 States, Virtual Mailbox, Remote Online Notary Services

    MARKETPLACE 
    For non-resident aliens, can you provide any sort of introduction/service/assistance to acquire a bank account for a new LLC you help register? (FYI: Industry is web hosting, and I'm from Ghana.)

    Hang out in Google Meet while I show you real-world programming skills

    SIDE HUSTLE 
    If this opportunity is still available, I'd like to join. I've completed Free Code Camp's Responsive Web Design curriculum (HTML & CSS) already and I've started working on JavaScript. I also have a bit of sysadmin and infrastructure experience, and I've worked with WordPress websites for over a...

    Any good books on funding.

    MARKETING 
    If your goal is to raise funding for your business or invest in other businesses (as opposed to investing in traditional asset classes), I'll highly recommend Jason Calacanis' book, Angel: How to Invest in Technology Startups: Timeless Advice from an Angel Investor Who Turned $100,000 into...

    Elementor Pro or Code with Angular?

    SIDE HUSTLE WEB DESIGN 
    The question you're really asking is: "Should I use the off-the-shelf WordPress CMS to build my business website to sell my digital files, or should I learn to code just so I can build the website from scratch with the Angular TypeScript framework?" That's a question you ought to answer...

    Ensuring and communicating results with a client!

    Let me just say... I disagree with you completely on this.

    Ensuring and communicating results with a client!

    SIDE HUSTLE WEB DESIGN 
    And what if those case studies contained tangible results (if you could deliver them)? Could that help win more clients? As a business owner myself, when I read case studies and testimonies and whatnot, I'm ALWAYS looking for tangible results. "We did SEO work for Big Co" is not as meaningful...

    Ensuring and communicating results with a client!

    SIDE HUSTLE WEB DESIGN 
    I guess that depends on what kind of business you're in: do you deliver results, or do you perform tasks? It's selling qualified leads vs selling ad space. It's "first page on Google or your money back" vs "we'll do the best we can". It's 2x ROAS or 10,000 FB likes in 7 days at 2 cents per...

    QUESTION: setting up email for clients with domain name?

    SIDE HUSTLE WEB DESIGN 
    Absolutely. You wouldn't create the email addresses in cPanel. You'll hand over 100% of the email function to the external email provider (GSuite, etc) by changing the domain's MX records to GSuite's addresses, and you'd login to GSuite's control panel to create and manage user accounts there...

    QUESTION: setting up email for clients with domain name?

    SIDE HUSTLE WEB DESIGN 
    cPanel/WHM includes a mail server and a couple of webmail clients. Look for the (who could have guessed!) "Mail" options in cPanel, you'll find answers to all your questions there. You should be able to forward emails to another address and set up local mailboxes for domains on the server. And...

    Should I learn HTML & CSS, or JavaScript?

    SIDE HUSTLE WEB DESIGN 
    As @Mainstream7 has said, you need all these three and more... if you want to do build it yourself and from scratch. But we're in 2021, you can 100% build such a website without learning any of those technologies. If you've identified an untapped lead gen marketplace idea and your sole reason...

    I lost my job and starting all over again learning web development @ 40 years old.

    SIDE HUSTLE WEB DESIGN 
    Perhaps it may be time to take a step back and re-assess your ultimate goal: do you really want to become an "Expert Web Developer", or do you want to own a web development agency? Thanks for the update though. Good progress!

    Music Software Video Course

    EXECUTION 
    In addition to the sample course video, it'll also be a good idea of you could create a "sales" or promotional video -- a simple video which agitates the problem and "sells" your course as the ideal solution to the problem. In fact, IF I can only do ONE, I'd rather do the sales video than the...

    Accountability thread

    SIDE HUSTLE WEB DESIGN 
    That sounds like a good plan, especially the industry you intend to serve. It's also good that you have your dad to, at the very least, bounce ideas off. Good luck, and remember to update this thread with your progress!

    My first CENTS Analysis (Video Course) - Feedback welcome!

    Actually, no, not exactly 100%. You're going to pay for hosting and on-going technical maintenance of your website (or subscription fee, if you use a hosted course platform like Teachable), .... and credit card processing fee. And, of course, you'll be 100% responsible for every eyeball that...

    Music Software Video Course

    EXECUTION 
    Congratulations on taking steps to launch your course! Do you have an existing list or audience of some sort? If not, how do you intend selling the course? On your own website, or in a marketplace (like Udemy, Skillshare, etc). If on your own website, what's going to be the primary way...
