How to Create a Website in Under a Day and Sell it for 1K
Starting a web design business can be incredibly easy if you know how.
This is a fantastic model and one that’s more scalable and more profitable than you probably imagine.
Right now, you might be wondering what I’m talking about.
After all, web design is a service and if you work alone or in a small team; then a service is famously un-scalable.
You can only complete as much work as you can complete.
And if the demand is greater than your ability to output, then you’re going to have to start turning down customers or just working more slowly.
Or at least that used to be the case.
Today you can create a fully functional website in under a day and sell it for a grand. Seriously! Or alternatively, you can outsource it and not do any of the work yourself.
Read on and I’ll show you how…
Creating a Website in WordPress
If you were to look at the accounts of many big businesses, you might be appalled at how much they spend on web design.
They hire design teams that charge them thousands of dollars to create unnecessarily complicated websites that end up not looking all that modern either.
You and I know that you can actually create a fully functional, highly modern and completely responsive website in WordPress and it takes a few minutes and costs $40-$80.
So here’s what you do: you buy some hosting for the year ($100), you install WordPress in a single click and then you install a theme from Theme Forest ($50).
Make a few tweaks, upload the logo and there’s your website.
The only problem is that CEOs don’t know this!
But you do.
So what you can do is to do all that for them in one day and that way you can charge $1k for an amazing website.
This will be cheaper than they’d have paid another agency and the end result is better – but you’re earning all that money for very little work.
This was actually the entire concept that Matt Mullenweng had when he invented WordPress – his idea was to turn the service into a product.
And I think we can all agree he succeeded!
Outsourcing web design
The other option is to outsource elements.
Because sometimes a company will understandably need an entirely custom and unique web design.
Or maybe they won’t want to use WordPress for whatever reason.
Or maybe they just have an advanced feature they need.
You can do very little work for this – all you need to do is to find a white label services company like ColorWhistle.
We work behind the scenes for no credit and we charge incredibly low rates.
That means you can hire us to do any job no matter how big or small and then you can sell it to your own clients as your own.
When you do this, it again means you can scale the amount of work you take on and keep your profits and revenue sky high – while only working for a day in a lot of cases!
