Q&A: is web design still big business or too saturated?
Question by flowlikedat: is web design still big business or too saturated?
there are loads of companies offering web design. is it worth opening up an office and company offering web design.graphic design etc etc? is it too late?
do you think there is still money to be made? i think those who needed websites..already have them right?
new companies are the target then..but they might go to someone who is local or already established online..e.g. no.1 search result on google.
what do you think?

Don’t bank everything on web design. Offer a broad range of products. Look at what the big guys (or local guys) offer. You offer AT LEAST the same, but then offer things that are unique to you. For instance, offer a 10% discount on services to a client if they refer another client to you.
Companies do still need a web presence for the most part. Your small businesses (less than 75 employees is my estimate) are the ones you need to target, because they most likely don’t have someone savvy enough to get them on with a big guy, and then to do all the design work in house.
There is always room for a GOOD web designer. The market may be saturated, but if you’re good and ethical, people will come back to you AND will refer you to their peers.
