Running A Successful Web Design Business

A session at The Future of Web Design London 2012

Monday 14th May, 2012

9:00am to 5:30pm (GMT)

We like to think that being a successful independent web designer is about creating great websites. Its not. Running your own business is about a lot more than having the right professional skills. Paul’s workshop will reveal the hidden secrets to building a successful, profitable web design business.

What you'll learn:

  • How to create a proactive marketing strategy that doesn't rely on work just coming through the door.
  • How to nail the sales process including outstanding proposals and killer pitches.
  • Better ways to build a long term relationship with your clients.
  • The importance of achieving a healthy work/life balance and how to make it happen.
  • How to work less hours and yet achieve more.
