    You should be asking on another forum such as stackoverflow or other programming forums. This post doesn't help anyone or provide any insight or add value to the thread...

    I have a question.

    If you want to make a site with an option to book, let's say a room, do you need to learn SQL and PHP/JAVA or it can be done another way? I want to create sth like that and also a shop for my product I want to sell (with an option to log in, paying options ect.).

    The next step would be designer added to the website but I am pretty sure you need to learn to code to achive that.

    I'm a little torn on this one.

    This week I've learned a lot about copywriting. Lex's course, going through Sugarman's book, daily practice, etc.

    However. Every local client I'm looking at helping has a website that looks like sh*t

    I don't feel like good copywriting would help them out if their website looks bad for 1999 standards. Good copywriting on a good looking website would be best in my opinion.

    What do you guys recommend?

    Should I also learn web design so that I can offer a complete service for people or just specialize in one? I don't want to get lost in endless learning without doing cycles so any advice would be huge.

    Thanks!

    Start with both. It's a great combo.

    Most agencies here don't even do copywriting. They ask their clients to write their own texts. I offer a big value by also doing the copy. I also think a website with bad copywriting sucks, so it's very important.

    Besides, copywriting can always be helpful at any stage in your life.

    Thank you for the input! I agree with what you're saying.

    Combining them is what I'm hearing from most people (posted this same question in Fox's Facebook group).

    I'll go with that route moving forward!

    I'm interested to her your take on this since you seem to be doing it. Have you heard of the title, UX Writer? I read about it on Neville Medhora's blog:

    https://kopywritingkourse.com/ux-writer/

    Not sure if branding myself as a UX Writer is the way to go or something else.
