How You Can Add Value To The Marketplace By Being A Web Designer

When people think of web designers, usually they think of these techy computer freaks that sit behind a computer all day and just design websites, while there may be some truth in that thats not the end all be all. Web designers are so much more.

So What Is A Web Designer Anyway?

My definition of a web designer is someone who adds value to the marketplace by successfully completing and designing all different types of websites for different purposes. Web designers have a lot to contribute to the internet world but unfortunately the majority of them don’t know that.

I personally have served hundreds of business owners in helping them design their websites. When you can truly help someone in generating business or teach someone something, its called adding value to the market place.

How Web Designers Help Local Business Owners

One of my absolutely favorite things about being a web designer is helping business owners. The feeling is rewarding and just inspires me to keep running my business with compassion and integrity that we have since the beginning. Once I helped my first person, it was almost like I was addicted to the feeling of someone congratulating me. Its almost selfish of me in a sense =).

How You Can Take Your Web Designing Business To 6 figures A Year

There are plenty of web designers who have 6 figure a year businesses but there are more that don’t than those that do. So you are probably wondering, how did they get their businesses to 6 figures a year?

The #1 way to make a 6 figure per year biz is to become an expert in the field. Now that may sound scary but its actually pretty simple.

What Does It Mean To Be An Expert?

When people hear the word expert they automatically think that it takes years and years of experience to become an expert, when actually thats not as true as a lot of people think. To be considered an expert you just have to know a little more about a topic than someone your helping.

Thats called being a “relative expert”. Thats pretty much all it takes to help someone and become an “expert” in your selective niche. So now you are probably saying, well what if I want to become an expert in my niche but I don’t know too much about it?

The #1 Way To Become An Expert In ANYTHING

There is a simple formula to literally become an expert in any niche that exists. The formula is “ILT” which means Invest, Learn, Teach. So how does that help you become an expert in any niche? Let’s break it down:

Invest – Investing in courses that are related to your niche and actually teach you “how to”. You can never put too much money into your education.

Learn – Learn the things that the course or book your purchased is teaching you.

Teach – Once you invest in learning more about your niche and becoming an expert in your field then you take that knowledge and teach others what you have learned.

When you become a teacher you are automatically looked at as an expert, which in return will get people to trust you and then they BUY from you. If you can teach enough people there is no doubt that your business will reach six – figures a year, your first year in business.

Take Action

I challenge you to take some action starting TODAY. Start deeply diving into your niche and learning some new things and then turn around and teach that to someone else and watch the response you get.

Now thats putting value into the market place!

Different Type Of Web Designing Platforms

Web design is a very broad term and can mean a lot of different things. There are also lots of things that go into web design and plenty of different platforms. Some different web designing platforms are:

  • WordPress (What I used to design this blog)
  • Wix
  • Weebly
  • Dreamweaver
  • Joomla

How Do I Know Which Web Designing Platform Is Best For Me

Choosing a web designing platform can be a confusing process if you do not know where to start, but I am going to give you some steps to start with to help you in your search in choosing the perfect web designing platform for your specific needs.

WordPress – This platform is mostly used by SEO’s and people that have a decent amount of web designing experience. The awesome thing about WordPress is all the different themes you can choose from. Whether you are looking for a simplistic blog theme like this one or an amazing theme, WordPress has all the options. Its almost the web designing platform where the one size fits all because it can be for the most advance web designing person or some thats just beginning.

Wix – Wix is a beginner friendly platform that lets you design websites with just a click of the mouse. If you are looking for something simple and to really get your site up on the web and looking good quickly.

Weebly – Weebly is similar to Wix in its simplicity. I have seen some awesome looking websites all from using their drag and drop interface. Weebly is excellent for someone who is a beginner and also wants a very SEO friendly platform. Weebly also has great customer service, with a live chat feature.

Dreamweaver – This platform is for a more advanced designer who knows some html and some CSS code. A lot of the websites on the web are html, such as Weebly, but the difference is you are actually designing a website from scratch. If you are super technical, this is definitely the way to go and if you are not sat very far away from Dreamwever.

Joomla – Joomla is similar to WordPress in a lot of ways. You can either be a techy freak or a newbie and this platform will work for both. I have seen plenty of great reviews from people who use Joomla and they almost all talk about the simplicity and how user friendly it is.

I personally chose to do WordPress because of all the super cool themes and plug-ins that are included and I also love the fact that it is SEO friendly.


If you are looking to build a website I hope this detailed guide gives you some insight on which platform would be best for your particular needs.

Introduction To CC Design Studio


Hey there! Welcome to the CC Design Studio Blog. This blog is dedicated to displaying the work of our company and also to help put value into the marketplace for people that are wanting to learn website design.

The work of CC Design Studio will also be displayed throughout the website for our marketing purposes.

How It All Started

Well my name is James and I absolutely love web design. I was born and raised in Houston Texas. I would say I had a pretty awesome life growing up. Had good family and friends around me, to be a good support system. Eventually graduated high school and went on to the University of Houston. While there is where I found my true love for web design. I was majoring in IT. I knew that working for someone else doing this is not what I wanted to do.

Four years later when I graduated I went straight into business for myself and my first year being in business I managed to hit the 6 figure mark. That was an awesome accomplishment for me. I proved to myself that I really can start my own 6 figure business and scale up.

In 2 years I’ve managed to bring on 100 clients and complete over 500 website designs. A lot of people would probably say. “thats a lot of work” but I don’t look at it as work, its fun to me.

What I Hope To Accomplish With This Blog

My main reason for starting the blog is not just to display my services but to become a complete authority in my market. I believe by doing that I will push CC Design Studio to a 7 – figure per year business within the next year or so.

With this blog I’m really hoping that I can reach out to people either needing our services or people that want to learn web design. Every once in awhile we will release tutorials on how exactly to design sites step by step and also if you are wanting to start your own web design company we will be giving tutorials and actin steps on how to do that as well.
