Thinking Of Starting A Web Design Company? Don't Do It!
If you are thinking of setting up a web design company - Don't. Once upon a time this was a dream market requiring a tiny software investment with massive prices, meaning an unbelievable profit margin. This is no longer true. The market is saturated, with many companies based in developing countries with low wage costs. There is no room in the market for anyone from North America or Europe to make a profit. Is it worth learning web design? - Yes, up to a point.
If you have a business, either traditional or online, and need a website you could consider designing it yourself. However, website design requires a specialist body of knowledge that you would have to spend many months acquiring. You need to ask youself if this is a wise investment of your time, or if your energy would be better employed on developing your business in other ways and outsource your website design. It will be useful if you know how to update and make small site modifications yourself, but that is a much smaller task than learning how to build websites from scratch. Tell your site designer that you want to be able to do this yourself and it the facility will be included in your site.
