And after that, it is possible according to this guide that you can earn a minimum of 20000-30000 per month. But when everything will be executed according to the plan and ideas.

1. Take offline Website Design Training Course – important to learn the basics of Website Designing

To learn web designing it’s always best to learn in class.  A class in which you can learn practical web design skills such as Adobe Photoshop, HTML, CSS, WordPress, PHP, Jquery. But finding the practical teachers offline is tough work. Else you can search on Google for specific person and research on their own website.

Mostly there is 1 Year Diploma Course in Web designing in India. But that is too much time investment and most of the institutes are not able to teach students practical and updated website designing skills.

Web design skills are mostly used in the private sector. Most web designers are multi-skilled. They can design website, they can market and they can optimize websites and they do many more things.

So my advice is finding someone who has a practical website designing knowledge and working experience in the field. And make sure that they already designed various websites for clients. Then choosing that person for learning is a good choice.

Else never join web designing course in any institute in which their own website is designed by the third party or any teacher who does not have designed any website for clients or others, but teaching web designing, is not good option to learn from. To learn web design but try to learn practically from experienced teacher or professional.

Online web designing course is the first choice for many people. The only advantages of doing web design online course are that they provide speed and flexibility for students. If you want to learn web design quickly, it’s a good option to do online web design course. And you can learn anytime from anywhere.

But for faster learning, you have to very good at the basics of computer. During the online web designing course, you need to practice more. You need to ask the question from the instructors. You need to make notes. You need to practice your web designing skills that you’re learning in the course. It’s totally self-learning.

Whatever (Website, wireframe, PSD, HTML forms) you create during learning web design, and then remember it’s under your eyes not in the eyes of instructors. So, you’re responsible for all kind of practices that you do.

I know that many online web design tutors are very well connected with their students and have good feedback and reviews. Whenever you practice web design makes sure it is above average. And show your designs someone or your instructor if possible online.

There are various websites to do online web design course. But remember to check that online course and syllabus is up to date according to industry standard or not. It’s also good if web design instructors have positive feedback and have more 5 Stars.

Also don’t forget to check the instructor’s web job history, portfolio and web industry experiences. Research on instructors personal or professional website, social profiles if you think this person is genuine to learn from then go ahead.

3. Self-Learning – Build websites for self – It’s important to build something and learn. This is a practical method.

You can learn website design skills by building websites for self. You don’t need to do online and offline web designing course. One thing that you need is a passionate interest to build and design websites. Learning web design using free internet sources such as free online course, YouTube and blogs is a good choice.

If your goal is to build the website for own. Then start with WordPress or use Wix. And try every website builder and see the difference. Book a domain. Then host that domain (by adding hosting Nameserver to the domain (DNS) this will be provided to you when you buy hosting.

You can watch online free tutorials, how to buy and host a domain. After that install WordPress, use a free theme, install plugins, keep watching, what is happening when you do certain things. I can’t able to explain this process in short here but my point is practice on such things. After practices on HTML, WordPress, CSS, Php edits, etc. web designing tools for six months or 1 year.

Then try to learn advanced languages to build websites such as Python Programming language.   But remember, if you’re choosing website designing as a career then it’s really important that you can learn and use updated web tools.

There is even so much work related to WordPress Website development and design practices. Adobe Photoshop is still one of the best tools to design home page, landing page and whole website for WordPress theme or for software designs.

Keep learning and practice web designing daily for 4-5 hours and in six months, you got very good knowledge to design professional looking websites.

4. Work as a trainee in Web Development or Designing Company – Important to gain experience and web design business process.

This is most important to work as a trainee in web development or web designing company. It will give you lots of experiences and industry knowledge. Even after finishing the website designing course it’s really important to jump directly to work with someone for free. I think it’s a good option to don’t look for money in the earlier web design career.

Just focus on learning and working as a trainee under an experienced website designer. Before applying seriously for any web designing job in the big or small company make sure you have some experience under your belt to discuss web design project detail with clients.

Else you can be great at using computers and the internet. The stronger your basic knowledge of computer, the faster you will learn website designing.
