    Hello guys,

    If I want to start a web design business, where should i start?

    Yes, I understand that to start such business and I need to learn design itself, so where should I start?
    I am totally newbie at it, so maybe I should start reading/watching some guides/tutorials? Youtube or paid courses.

    Maybe you can recommend some links,courses, info which could help to start and learn?

    I'm on the same boat. I just got a few a clients in this month. I dont know how to code or even to design. What I do is just to learn how to replicate beautiful theme demos. Just try to master some awsome themes like Avada, Divi, Flatsome etc... You will get a lot of clients. They dont care what technochy behind the websites. The only things they care is Does their sites look good ? Does it run fast. It takes take me like one month to learn all these awsome themes.

    In my country there are live paid course , the length of the course is one month and they are really good.
    But in your opinion, is it worth to go to paid live lessons? Lessons are each day 8 hours per day. I know that I could learn this stuff easily, but another question is how to get clients.

    Honestly I recommend just either trying out divi or elementor to begin with. They're pretty easy to get the hang of and allow for a variety of customization without any actual coding. I say just practice making sites with these and go to youtube for tutorials if you get stuck. There's really no need for any paid courses, everything you need to get started can be found for free.

    If you are looking for tested web designs built for conversion, I suggest you check out everything by Flint from MecLabs.

    I'd suggest starting with YouTube for learning how to do stuff. I'd also suggest learning by doing. Got a friend who has a shitty website, try designing and building them a better one. Ask them if you can give it a try as a favour (don't do it for money maybe a beer or two if they decide they like it). By actually building something you'll get an experience of;
    1. figuring out the requirements of what the customer (your friend in this case) wants
    2. experience of taking the requirements and making it a reality
    3. taking your customer through the new website and collecting their feedback
    4. making final adjustments
    5. handing it over if they want it (moving hosting, domains etc.)
