    Ive been messing with wordpress for a while now and I'm good with setting up a wordpress and using most of the features wordpress offers. I however was gifted a website design book recently and it got me motivated to become a skilled web designer. So if I became a skilled web designer what different kinds of way can I profit from the skills that I wouldn't be able to be solve with just wordpress.

    The first thing that comes to my mind is building templates. Come up with a solution that people are seeking in a wordpress theme, code it and sell it.

    If you are more interested in just building sites for people, start by building yourself a nice portfolio of sites where people can view your work.

    A good web designer with some coding skills can make some serious bank. There's a huge demand for it out there. You have the option of building your own products, or you can consult/go full time for someone else and pull in $100k+ a year pretty easily. However, you're not going to get to this skill level overnight, it takes quite a bit of time and dedication to get there.

    Good luck!
