Starting Freelancing as a Web Designer or Web Developer

What do you need to start freelancing as a Web Designer or Web Developer?

Well, the answer to this question is not so easy, but I would try to answer this question in this blog post. One thing is clear that freelancing as Web Designer or Web Developer is a little bit different than that of a full-time job as a Web Designer or Web Developer.

That is to say, in freelancing, generally, you have to complete a project alone, whereas, in a full-time job, people are used to working in a team, and one can take help of seniors or team members.

Website Design and Website Development are the two most widespread freelancing areas of work in the world today. Millions of people are doing Web Development and Web Design. Therefore, one thing is important; you need to go along extra mile to make a difference. Creativity is at the heart of both Web Design and Web Development.

Time management is a skill that needs to be mastered by all freelancers, no matter which area they serve. Most importantly, once you commit something to your client, move heaven and earth to deliver.

If you want to start freelancing as a Web Designer, you should develop expertise in software packages such as Dream Weaver, Adobe Illustrator, etc. These software packages are user-friendly and you can learn them in a few days.

If you want to start freelancing as a Web Developer, you first need to master widely used programming languages for example HTML, PHP, C#, etc. Moreover, it is good to learn JavaScript and CSS to make dynamic and responsive web pages.

At the end, we can discuss the hourly rates for freelancers who design websites and develop websites. As per Freelancer Income Survey 2015 of Payoneer, web designers and web developers on the average earn $22 per hour.

This rate is good for people in developing countries, but the people from advanced and industrialized countries find this rate low. The people who can make a difference through their work quality can earn way to higher than this average rate.
