    Hi All,

    I am fairly new to making money online. Web design is a thing that interests me. I know there are a lot of guys out there that can do the same as me and some are probably far more experienced but I was wondering if any of you could point me in the direction of where I can find a website or forums where people post wanted ads for a website to be made. I am aware of elance and freelancer. I just don't want to go into that bidding process. I want to kinda build up a portfolio before I go into that type of thing.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Aside from bhw, you can check out classified sites and different job boards. Good luck!

    Here is a nice tutorial to start making money online from Graphics - I should had add some more pragraphs and images and sell to WF for 7.95 but wtf!!! :p

    1. Sign up with fiverr and start selling one page designs for 5USD (bcars and etc will take more effort to promote) i know is a lot of work for you to earn only 3.92USD (after fiverr and paypal fee)
    but you will create a nice list of clients that they will return back to you all the time. 5$ for a nice looking one page design? Yeah they will return all of them back to you for more!
    You will build very fast over there a client list and reputation!

    2. Afterwards when you made around 120USD of profit and you have atleast 10 loyal clients, inform them that you will stop offering this service on fiverr and ask them to email you directly for new jobs!
    Do this after you withdraw all your money. Send them an PM with a nice cover letter thanking them for the work they give you etc etc and that you have to leave from fiverr! Attach a nice PDF with information where to find you!

    Send all the emails at once there is almost 100% sure that your account will be deleted by fiverr after few hours or days. Alternative you can risk to contact one by one the clients overtime and ask them to work with you outside of Fiverr!
    Tip:
    Signup on fiverr with a brandable username - the same usarname you need to use on the forums - if you get banned before you get in touch with you clients, you need to make sure that the clients will find you on google if they search for you using your username. Signup on DeviantArt and create a portfolio with the works you did on fiverr and use the same username as the one you will use on fiverr - doing this you cover your self and be sure that clients will find you!

    3. You got your money from Fiverr and 10 new loyal clients and you lost your fiverr account, dont worry, you are in contact with your clients, for all the new jobs you will get from your loyal clients quote them 3-4 times more but start to deliver better quality of work and let them know that you will deliver better quality that what they use to get from fiverr!

    4. Now you have the money to pay for the BHW marketplace, build your BST and start selling on BHW offer few free review, and discounts on bulk orders, offer your best quality in normal prices (check what the other designers are charging compare their quality of work with your own and set your prices right)

    5. Go to other forums as well and do the samething there as well!

    6. Dont take more jobs than what you could handle, always stop your sales before you get on your limits, always overdeliver, this will help you to get more reputation as seller and also over time you will build better skills and your work quality will get better and better!

    7. After you get better on your quallity and you are sure that your designs are amazing, find some free time, stop your sales if needed and build a list of nice templates (websites, sale pages, bcards and etc etc), offer it as WSO package and after few weeks place it on clickbank as well

    8. After 6 months reading this come back to thank me! - just kidding :)

    P.S.
    Dont loose your time on elance and freelancer
    Does this work, well yes i did all the above steps my self almost two years ago! You still can find my thread selling designs on WF, i stop offering this kind of services a year ago now i am working as an advisor and consultant!

    Good Luck, if you have any questions please feel free to contact me!

    I'm currently working on a project that is going to require web-design, if you want to help with the project I'll gladly split revenue with you when the website goes public. PM me for more information. This is a custom niche, and has high demand, but very, very little competition. Granted, you could probably make the site yourself, but you wouldn't have the software to go with it. :p
