    The Secret to Getting a Lot of Web Design WorkWebwork1
    22 shares
    Each week I get two or three requests for design work. They come sometimes from contacts, but more often than not they come from random people. Sometimes they even come from web-famous people or well-known companies. What is interesting about this though is that I no longer freelance, advertise for work or even have a portfolio. Actually it can be pretty hard to contact me, though I did finally put up a little website for myself two weeks ago. Although these days I turn away all this work, for some years I did in fact work as a freelance designer and happily always had more work than I could do – despite being inclined to overwork. So how do you get web design jobs? Or any other type of job? Here are some things that have worked for me.Read More…

    How To Make $5000+ a Month Building Websites Part-TimePreview
    67 shares
    I had a problem. Two problems, actually. The first problem was that my wife and I needed to come up with just over $26,000 to meet our goal of getting out of debt in the next 3 1/2 months. That was a problem because I was making just enough at my day job to get by. Which leads to my second problem, time, or rather - the lack thereof. Between a full-time job and a family, the time I had left to work towards our goal was limited. We did it though. In the beginning of December, 2011, we paid off our last debt and, for the first time in our marriage, we were debt free. How? On weeknights and on Sundays I built websites for clients. My time was limited and the amount of money I needed to make was high, so it was important to maximize the time that I spent on task. It meant a lot of late nights and sleep deprivation, to be sure, but we made it through and, looking back, I only regret that I didn’t do it sooner. As I recently reflected back on that experience, I realized that the lessons I learned and the strategies I used to get my family out of debt were applicable beyond my situation. You can use them too. If you need money and you’re short on time, I can’t think of anything better than building websites part time. Let's look at how to do that efficiently with maximizing profit a top priority.Read More…
