Learning How to Start a Design Business
Running a web design business is an amazing entrepreneurial springboard to other opportunities.
Both of us, started web design businesses and successfully removed ourselves from the day-to-day running of the business and built teams. This has enabled us to scale our revenues to over six-figures each. We both travel while working on our lifestyle businesses.
But it wasn't always easy! We've both had challenges along the way and therefore we will talk about every stage of the web design business: setting up, getting clients, running and, eventually, growing.
Firstly we explain how you can start your business:
how to think of a name and domain name for your business
how to set up a business’s finances
action steps for building or improving your website
how to differentiate and determine your niche
and setting business goals for the future
Then we give you great ideas about finding clients:
long term strategies like blogging and building online authority as well as networking to get clients
How to incentivize word-of-mouth referrals
We’re also going to give you some quick win ideas so you can get clients now!
and what to say on the sales call
With those clients safely in the bag, we go on to how to successfully run the business:
how to map out and clarify the project scope
how to simplify the dialog with the client to minimize problems
we have sample proposals, contracts and invoices for you to download and instructions on how to proceed through the project and how to ensure you're paid properly and on time
