How To Make Money As A Graphics Designer

Selling web site designs is much like selling any other service. You find customers who would want your service, and create graphics for them. Don't forget that many customers need graphics not just for the web, but also for brochures, flyers, offline ads, etc.

Obviously to offer this service you will need to have good graphics skills, the right software. As with web design, it is very important that your own site is professional looking if you want customers to be convinced you really can deliver on your promises.

A big advantage of being a graphic designer is once you build up a client list, many will come to you again and again for repeat jobs, updates, new materials, etc.


Advantages
  • Customers are purchasing from you - if they like your service, you can offer them additional products/services and sell them those too, later.

Disadvantages
  • That maximum amount of services that you can deliver is limited by your time availability (or you will need to hire employees once you get going).
  • Customer Service - you need to devote at least part of your time to customer service (answering questions etc.)

Step-by-step Plan
  1. Decide on the services and rates

    It is a good idea to plan ahead what graphic design services you are able to offer. Make sure you have access to professional quality graphics software and you are fully aware of the features.

    Finally you will need to start building a portfolio of references, testimonials etc., soon as possible - if necessary do some design services for free or low cost to get these.

    Don't forget that approaching local business approached offline - can be a great starting point!


  2. Set up Your Web Site

    You will need:



  3. Write Your Sales Letter

    "Copy Writing" is a combination of art and science. It is probably the single most important marketing skill you can learn, as without a good sales letter it is very hard to convince visitors to your web site to buy from you.

    There are many good copy writing guides. My suggestion would be to choose one that you like, buy it - and - most importantly - read it carefully:

  4. Get Ready To Accept Online Payments

    You must be able to accept online payments, especially payment by credit card.

    • If you wish to sell products delivered over the Internet (such as downloads), you might want to look at ClickBank. They act as a retailer, integrate into your website, and offer an affordable and flexible system.

    • If you need to charge a monthly or periodic fee (e.g. a subscription) you might want to look at Verotel.

    • If you want your own merchant account and are in the USA (this may be the best option if you know you are going to be dealing with a large volume or have already got an established business) go to Electronic Transfer, Inc..

    • More information about accepting payments online can be found here.
