Web Designer Job Description
The job of a web designer is to build web sites for clients. My experience spans all aspects of online work from initial
strategy to launch and marketing.  I also do consulting, re-designs and updates as well as incorporate interactive
and e-commerce elements.

What is my background?
I spent six years in college learning way too many computer languages : )   I specialized in business programming and took
additional courses in business and more for general education but my real dues were paid owning and operating multiple outlet
businesses.  Now that’s an education unattainable in college!  I’ve sold, purchased and designed advertising and developed
many successful business strategies and campaigns for myself and other companies.  I even enjoy a position as a business
analyst for a few businesses in my area.  I do operation and cost analysis and study the performance of businesses to increase
their performance and profitability.

How did I become a freelance web designer?
Back-in-the-day, I was the only computer programmer in my band (another smile could be inserted here)... yes, I was also a
musician and vocalist, at the time.  I enjoyed designing with state-of-the-art techniques that helped us stand out above the rest
on the web.  I became a freelance web designer back in the early 90's when the internet was just starting to break into homes.

What do I like most about being a freelance web designer
I love showing people what can happen as a result of what I do.  The feeling of seeing your own presence come alive
on the web is incredible but then to also reap benefits you never knew were there?  Nothing is more satisfying.
I love being my own boss. I enjoy the people that I get to meet and partner with every day and
most importantly, I get to spend time with my family.

How long does it take to build a website?
It varies depending on the data necessary, number of pages, artwork I may have to create, whether
or not you have your own domain or I acquire it for you and more.  Most take about one week.
Some can take up to a month if very extensive and others are continually changing.

What advice would I give to those who want to get into web design?
Learn as much as you possibly can and never stop because web design is about using technology that is constantly
changing and never stops. If you think that you can just go to school to learn some great new technology, get out there
and be set for life as an independent designer, you are very wrong.   You have to realize that you will always need to learn new
languages and technology and also, always be up to par in your business game!

MY BIG SECRET -  If you can’t understand business from the business owner’s standpoint, you surely can’t offer a
beneficial product and you certainly can’t expect to receive any partnership requests!
