New Course From Paul Boag: Promoting Your Services and Winning Work

Read Time:2 minsLanguages:

Just because you're a great coder or designer, it doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll be a successful web design business owner. In an increasingly tough marketplace, being able to sell yourself and your work is crucial for success. Our new course, Promoting Your Services and Winning Work, will teach you the skills you need to survive and thrive.

Meet the Instructor: Paul Boag

What you'll learn is not just theoretical. The instructor, Paul Boag, has 20 years of experience as a web designer, and will share the practical lessons he's learned from founding and running a successful UK web design agency.

From the cubicles of IBM to the roller-coaster ride of the dot-com boom and bust, Boag has seen it all. He's written about it, too, in books like Digital Adaptation, Website Owner's Manual, and more. He's also a frequent contributor to publications such as .net magazine and Smashing Magazine, and hosts the popular web design podcast Boagworld.

But it's from co-founding web design agency Headscape and running it successfully for more than a decade that Boag draws many of the lessons in this course. He'll teach you exactly what it takes to be a successful web design business owner, including:

  • how to build a reputation that will attract new potential clients
  • what goes into a perfect proposal
  • when to walk away from an opportunity that is not right for you
  • how to impress when you present to a client
  • how to generate more repeat business
