Please How Can I Start Getting Jobs Or Clients As A Website Designer by Nobody: 10:46am On Jul 04, 2021
Good morning guys

My Previous post (I asked questions about Data Analysis job roles and the advice really helped thanks guys)

I'm at crossroads right now.

I just finished creating a portfolio website but don't know how to go about getting website design clients.

I'm a computer science student and I use platforms and tools like Wordpress and Shopify and Adobe XD very well but no money. I haven't had a job before so it's all new to me but I know I can still be smart with it even though I'm like a baby.

Last year I learnt UIUX Design and uploaded my portfolio works on Dribbble still the same thing.

I don't even know if I should start messaging people on facebook I think might need a website and start calling businesses and tell them about getting websites.

I can build any kind of wordpress websites even Shopify stores and also work with HTML CSS JAVASCRIPT PHP codes.

I can share my portfolio website and works if requested.

Abeg make una help me with orientation and guidance ���

You are job searching and you need people to request for your portfolio before you post them?
Re: Please How Can I Start Getting Jobs Or Clients As A Website Designer by Nobody: 2:17pm On Jul 04, 2021
Privacy reasons please.

Let me send you the link to my portfolio website.

And I'll appreciate any tip and advice you can still give.

I really do need to start working and getting clients. So i'll appreciate any tip from Freelancers and People working in this field.

And thanks for taking time to read my post.

I didn't get your mail though, as we are not following each other.

Why do you fear making your portfolio public?

Most employers would want to see what you've built to be sure you are not an imposter, so add the link to your projects you have online to this thread.

You don't have to make the source code public if you wish.

Op post your portfolio o. A guy posted his on twitter and got a job immediately. I posted a half ass job on Reddit and that's how I got my first remote job. You never know who is looking.

Thanks for the information.

I created a Reddit account last night but the topics for website designs were overwhelming and my target prospects are not fellow website designers

I actually don't have Wordpress portfolio websites I have done only a Music Blog and My Portfolio website.

The rest are UI designs I made last year.

But I don't want to do UI again. I only added them to the portfolio website.

I'll try getting low cost clients and make no risk offers to them. Maybe charge only hosting and domain and small data.

Here is my email Lovemorenc10 at gmail. com

Good morning

I can whip you up any Wordpress and Shopify website and I learnt how to use Adobe XD during the COVID last year I did WhatsApp redesign about 14 screens fully Prototype even a Dashboard and some other works.

And I can work with any PHP and Javascript codes. Like I know how they works and can work with them

Going by your previous enquiry, does it mean that you're no longer interested in data analysis again, and now choose to switch to web design?

Yes

I was already into website design and UI UX Design so with words from others I realized I should just continue rather than swich cause I was having trouble finding my way with web design and UI Designs
