Advice When Starting a Web Design Career
WMT Section: Webmaster Tips - WMT Category: Tips for Webmasters

The most common mistake that a web designer can make and hinder them from profiting is the mindset that “your time is not an expense”. This is absolutely not true and here is why, whatever takes your time is not free and you incur expenses while doing so, so work fast in order to save on expenses and your client saves as well. A change in attitude is needed and re program your way of thinking because there are just so many hours in a day and you are spending it doing work for others and you must be compensated. The key here is to work faster because the faster you accomplish your task the quicker you get paid.

In connection with working faster the next advice misconception that other web designers preach is that using web templates is bad. If you are just starting out a quality web template will save you hours of work. There is nothing wrong with using these third party products as long as it is design correctly it will save you the hassle of starting from scratch and will get the job done quicker hence saving your clients time and money and improves you track record for delivering on time. Web designers that frown upon using these templates are the closet template users that still have to figure out how to make it big in the industry.

One of the common mistakes that hinder designers to make money with web design is their inability to differentiate web from graphic design. Your customer expects you to create or design their website with the objective to get their product or service across to their target market or consumer. Website design London is a business and not an art project in which the customer could care less about the overly elaborate graphics that fill the website. They are in there to find out about the company, product or service that the website provides although it being visually stimulating helps it is all about getting the message across to them which you should not deter from.

Always remember to be yourself because what you create is a reflection on how good you are. Good luck.
