My first ever book was written about a subject very close to my heart: Running A Web Design Business From Home.
The book is for anyone with a computer and an internet connection who wants to make money by designing websites for clients from home. Maybe you’re working for a design company, or freelancing, or you feel under-utilised, unappreciated or uninspired. Maybe you have some other job but love making websites.
Running a web design business from home would enable you to work when you’d like, on what you’d like, and with whom you’d like.
This book explains how to set up your business from home – the hardware, software and back-up you’ll need. The book also explains how to get clients – long term, quality clients that will recommend you and give you ongoing work. I talk a lot about how to run web design projects and how to handle clients so you know exactly what they want and can finish project with stress at a minimum. And, looking to the future, I’ll explain how to diversify your business.
This is not a “get rich quick” book. You are encouraged to start in your spare time and slowly but surely build up your long-term professional contacts and online authority. This will provide you with a solid base for whatever you want to achieve with your online business in the future.
