About This Class

If you're a new freelance web or mobile designer or developer, you might be at the point where you're wondering how you can create an online presence without spending a ton of money. Should you hire someone to do this for you or can you do it on your own? How much time is this going to take? Is this worth it? Why is this such a pain? Is this really necessary? Well, you can do this on your own, it shouldn't take too much time, and it is worth the necessary pain because if you don't have something to direct potential clients to then you're going to miss out on new projects and deals.

In this class I'm going to show you cheap and easy ways to create an online presence. We're going to look at other app and design studios to examine what they're doing right and what they could do better.

At the end of the course you will have a better idea of what your options are for creating an online presence without breaking the bank.
