That’s right. Read that title again. It says that this article is going to show you how a farmer can become a web designer in 30 days. Believe it or not, it’s extremely simple and that’s how we came up with the title of this article you’re reading right now. Why did we call it that? We titled it that because there’s actual proof that you can switch from just about any industry into web design because of the developments in the industry. Let’s take a look at what we mean.
There’s a company in Tennessee that’s called Web Design Franklin TN and they got their start as a bunch of waiters. They started with very simple concepts and learned how to use WordPress to develop their websites. From there they learned how to purchase and install premium themes. After that, they began learning small amounts of HTML so that they could make customizations where needed (but mostly so that they could easily create headers and bullet points etc.).
With the latest developments in web design, anybody can learn it very easily. In fact, you can become an expert in using platforms such as Shopify and Squarespace and sell services to people who are new to website building. That’s right, the baby boomers who wanted to retire but couldn’t are often times looking for ways to make money online. They just don’t have a means by which they can create a website. So they find convenient platforms (such as Shopify and Squrespace) and then they get going. However, even these platforms can become complicated to grandma and grandpa. So what do they do? They look for their grandson or granddaughter for assistance in using these platforms.
Now the point that we’re making here is that you don’t need to know HTML, CSS, PHP etc. All you need to do is learn a very simple platform (such as WordPress, Joomla, etc.) and master it. This shouldn’t take you more than 30 days. In fact, the whole process shouldn’t take you more than two weeks! If you really pull up tutorials while you mess around with the platforms, you could easily become a master at these.
If you decide to give it a try, we strongly recommend that you get your services listed on a Web Design Directory so that you can be found easily when people are looking for web design services. There are several out there. Another great tip is to get yourself listed on Yelp because they have lots of people searching their platform for web designers. Just as a quick warning on Yelp, they’ll fight tooth and nail to try to get you to purchase advertising with them, so please beware of this. Their advertising has worked for some, but it doesn’t work for everyone.
Take it upon yourself to spend a couple of weeks learning WordPress. All you need to do is find a few YouTube videos that offer WordPress tutorials and you’ll be all set! It really isn’t very hard and in the end it can be very fun!
