    So currently I'm taking an online Udemy course. It's the complete WordPress Buisness course. It's pretty good so far. Not finished but I'm going to feel lazy for asking this but, is there any wisdom to be shared about website design that I may need to know? Usually I don't like to ask simple shortcut sounding questions like this but I'm just curious is all. I've got a decent plan. Finish course, build websites, freelance website creation for clients and sell them too. And then create my own website for experience and maybeto find which industry is needed I could add value in. That's the jist of it

    I started with a Udemy course as well, but now being a more experience developer in general. I would say to skip the wordpress version of it. If you really want to get into web development. You need to learn the basics of HTML, CSS, Javscript, and a backend language of your choice. PHP is always good, and easy to learn. You might try NodeJS as well though.


    Wordpress is so easy and so many people are doing it though, you won't find much value to add.

    Check out Twitter Bootstrap. They have a ton of pre-built HTML, CSS, and Javscript elements that make coding a good looking website easier. But try to find a course on the basics first. If you like I can forward you to the one that I took a couple years back? The person who made it probably has new better courses along the same line.

    You are in for a rough ride. Web design is oversaturated at the moment and the only real way to make money fast is to get involved in a network or word of mouth.

    The current reason I'm getting into it is temporary. I need to know how to make a website site for my business once I get an understanding of what industry I can add value to first. I'm using web design currently as a means of researching what industry I need to focus on. Once I find it, I can move forward with creating a buisness from there.

    You should learn the fundamentals of digital marketing because web design needs to align with so many other factors.

    Take a look into Google Ads (PPC) and SEO.

    Also learn a bit of sales psychology and implement stuff like a clear and motivating USP and social proof.

    I have a friend who literally just buys Wordpress templates for clients, installs them and sets them up (including domain and hosting) for $2,500-$5,000. Yet there are HTML/CSS wizards who can't get a contract to save their life.

    Web design, just like any other freelance discipline, is about sales. Learn the basics, then learn how to sell, then go do it.
