But for start-ups, the question is still a black mark of how to get started with their own first web design startup for their business. 

One thing must be kept clear in mind that even if you are a young start-up, settling up your own website design might take some time and patience from your side but ultimately won’t be a thing that is impossible to achieve. You can still succeed in your web journey even if you have just tapped into the digital market or web market place with some guidance and right tips to follow. 



Having said that , below we bring you our top 05 tips of how to get started with your own Web Design Startup even if you are a newbie or inexperienced somewhat –By following  these, you could easily come in parallel to a competent website designer, whose enjoying a little edge over you due to his expertise : 

Here you go with the easiest, top 05 tips that won’t let your boat sink into the competitive ocean of web design   

Always Start With A ‘Portfolio’ 
 
It’s not possible to express in words of how much importance a ‘portfolio’ carries for a certain website and how it can speak volumes about your business, giving it a professional standing. 

Often people feel to realize this step and start complaining of why they aren’t getting their desired leads and sales, rather than working on the actual deal. They find themselves clueless of how to operate their first website design project and often commit blunders and then, ultimately ‘suicide’ in terms of business closures. 

But Here Is The Bottom Line: 
 
There are plenty of ways to snatch the right set of leads for your business only if your intention is honest. Don’t let your fear or anybody’s discouraging comments to make divert you from your vision and goals.  

The thing is that there isn’t any right time or age to start seeking clients for your business and won’t be any dream or nightmare be popping up that would make you notify of. You must need to realize this on your own at a very early age of your business cycle and once you get the gut in you, follow it straightforward. 

There are many young adult entrepreneur inspirations who started with their own businesses ides rather than opting for some white-collar, high paying jobs and did ‘great’ with an impressive portfolio that helped their business grow ten-fold and of course, client referrals mattering too.  

If such adult entrepreneurs, having no prior knowledge of the web or web design experience can do it so wonderfully then, why can’t you? Just ask yourself!   

Just Know This Food For Thought: 
 
Never expect to get 100 for 100! Start slow and be calm. Though getting your first client might make you spoil badly and wont seems an easy task to do at first sight but once, you get the first one clicking with you then, there won’t be any full-stops.  

Therefore, run after clients rather money and offer them more beyond their expectation and this is a approach that will surely bridge up a never ending emotional connection between you and your clients and leads to plenty of referrals and recommendations that you need ‘actually’, without striving much.


Focus On Branding 
 
There must always be a brand to be setup for your web design service so as to make people remember it for years. Though many designers might oppose or overlook the thought but, branding has everything to do with website design. With a brand for yourself, people will talk more and more about your service rather than forcing their heads to remember your design. They will be like: Oh! That Brand! , or Yes! I have heard about those guys!  

Your brand will develop such credibility and an impression that the website doesn’t belong to some XYZ company or carries a fake identity. You need to owe a distinguishable trademark or corporate label for your service. 

How Do I Start With Building A Brand? 
 
If we talk in terms of a total branding perspective then, it would be wise to begin with your own name as an ‘exclusive’ like, Sara. By going this way, you’ll be able to start up with your own agency or might work as a freelancer. But if you want to launch yourself as a web business in digital market telling some professional image then, be creative and feel to add anything that can ponder over the mind and hearts of your audience and can seize their attention by just a glance. 

Moreover, you need to work on your SEO thinking cap as well and try to link one keyword to your brand to make it ranked high and will work as a  world of good for your e-startup .Try to enhance your brand by adding the value of SEO into it. 

Another pro tip for branding is to leave your brand name on footer with or without a link. Footer links plays a pivotal role in backlinks and boosting the entire SEO scenario, but you won’t be getting any referral from it. 

Believe it or not, if you want to really give your client with some decent website, you can easily get a free referral by the help of the sole footer text. Footers are the moneymakers for your web design agency, so utilize them at your best. 

Free Design Is Never A ‘Crime’ 
 
Nobody on earth can claim that he doesn’t like free stuff. All of us must have been a part of some free incentives available online or some BOGO offers. Even psychology urges to add something small as a value -added incentive for your customers on your website to help in conversion making .So, why not to follow the rule being a web designer and start offering something for ‘free’ ?  

Try to reach out for top brands and design something for them for free rather than focusing on what you’ll be getting from them and how much. Try to focus on building your brand name first in an attempt to take your career at one step ahead. 

A great thing about these big brands is that they have tons of small projects to offer if you know the correct approach of how to reach them .We aren’t saying to design their entire website and earning pennies or nothing in turn but you can either go for designing some inner website dynamics like an inner reporting system, let’s say and you can earn name by keeping it free.  

Never Stop Networking & Make Competitors Your Friend 
 
No matter even if you become the MNC of your industry, you must never stop on networking.
Networking with your peers and like-minded people always helps your business to grow and get popularized and if you are managing multiple businesses, then the links that you developed during your first startup would definitely help you out in growing the rest of your business within the least period of time .This is the best strategy to follow for any newbie startup owners. 

Try to screen out and connect with people of your community via social media and LinkedIn most noticeably. Share your ideas with them, ask them for recommendations and gauge your   pitfalls and learn growth boosting techniques. Once, you‘ll learn how to network with the right set of people then, you would be able to increase your list of clients within no time at the year’s end.

Comparatively, you must have heard of the proverb: “Keep your friends close and your enemies even closer. Keep an eye of what your competitors are doing and try to learn from them, rather replicating Analyze their process and though not replicating it, but you can go for some inspiration with your own creativity.  

On a brighter note, try to connect with them and ask for web design clients. You would get surprised to see how politely some of them will respond to your proposal, if you have genuine answers to their problems. 

Get A Reseller Hosting 
 
This is one of the biggest mistake that many of the website designers taking their first start misses and then, realize this later. This is because they fall so much into the flare of web design and development only and overlook the major chunks that could actually bring them some passive income. 

Yes! It is true!  
 
By hosting a client’s website in your own reseller hosting, you can easily make some passive income for yourself and if you didn’t give importance to this thing in your early days of website design building then, we cannot tell you many clients you can slip out of your hands easily .You can’t afford this now!
So, whenever any client comes to you for hosting then, never recommend them to some other hosting service providers, rather you service them and forget about the pay. Focus on making strong relationships.  

This Is What You Can Do:  
 
Buy a reseller hosting account for no more than $500 annually.  If you are able to host a max of let’s say, 50 accounts in one reseller account at $3 per month, you will earn approximately $108 monthly. This of course, not that much big amount, but hey it’s a passive income nevertheless. Also, it also gives you control over the websites you have built. That includes footer links.

Closing Down 
 
We know how starting up a new business could be a daunting task to achieve. But if you have the right tools with you and a proper roadmap predefined then, no deep ocean like a web design even, can dare to sink you in losses. 

Please let us know in the comments blew if you have some additional tips to share. We would love to hear!
