A web design coach is a professional experienced in web design who works with other web designers and webmasters to help them produce not only a professional looking website but also one that is profitable for the owner of that website. Web design coaches have a experience designing websites and have a proven track record that helps increase online sales as well as search engine rankings and a good knowledge and experience of e-commerce.
A web design coach can also design websites for his or her clients but the main focus is working alongside other web design and development companies to help them build better websites for their clients. As most businesses are starting to build your own website by themselves without the help of outside agencies using popular platforms including WordPress, Drupal, wicks, other popular such a square space, a web design coach can help the self-employed webmaster also held a better website without hiring outside professional.
A web design coach can specialize and have expertise in one particular area of web design or all of them including but not limited to:
- professional web design
- graphic design
- server-side languages like.net, PHP, Java, Python
- online marketing services including search engine optimization, social media marketing
- an e-commerce design to help push and promote products and services online to help website owners and large companies increase sales on the Internet
on January 1, 2018, I created the term web design coach. This term has not yet existed until then.
Why would somebody want to become a web design coach?
In the world where there are web designers who get into the field without any knowledge of professional design building somewhat mediocre websites and with no knowledge of backend design, and including all of the free software out there including WordPress and Drupal and some of the online tools, the web design industry has become larger, more inundated, more competitive, and just tougher to be successful in. With that growth of interest of people turning to web design as a profession, not everyone has knowledge of good web design or even e-commerce or any knowledge on how to build profitable websites. This is where a web design coach comes in. A web design coach has a proven track record of building very profitable and professional looking websites for their clients and not only helps other web designers but also coaches business owners on the best type of content to add to their website to help improve search and optimization, social media marketing sharing, and online sales.
What is it like to be the first web design coach in the world?
I have been building websites since 1995 and have worked on over 1000 websites from everyone from corporate 500 companies to small mom-and-pop shops and have also worked with over 5000 web designers all over the world helping them create better websites. I have a unique course coming up on how to become a certified web design coach. My web design coaching started around 10 years ago when I was analyzing websites in videos for my clients and for other web design companies. What happened was that web design companies were complaining that their clients were not making sales and when frustrated with them as a merchant or service provider. I would work with them to help reorganize the websites to help turnaround sales online for their clients. I’ve a success rate of over 90% working with web designers and this is what qualifies somebody to become web design coach.
If you are a web designer and have experience with over at least 500 websites and had working in the field for over 10 years and no hand coded design as well as some of the tools out there, you may qualify to be a web design coach yourself. Web design coaches can make anywhere from $200-$300 an hour just coaching other web designers is an amazing field to get into as of 2018.
What are the requirements to become a web design coach?
Web design coaches possess all of the following assets and accomplishments:
- are experienced web designers and have worked on at least 500 websites
- have practiced web design for at least 10 years
- have knowledge of front end design and some back and design
- have the ability to work with other web designers and guide them
- can also optionally speak publicly.
We are to the term web design coach come from?
There are coaches in all types of industries including life coaches, sports team coaches, exercise coaches, health coaches and other types of coaches. Since I have been doing this for 10 years, I never really had a term for it, so I decided to call this coaching. Web design coaches are the next wave of the web design industry.
