I have been creating websites since I was 13. I consider it the oldest online profession.
Yes, I have been creating websites since I was a child and I don’t know why, but I still stick with it. I enjoy it. Although the industry now has tremendous competition and is generally very saturated, I still believe there is a place for a quality web designer.
Websites are and will continue to be a key marketing and communication channel. I see a website as an online presentation of companies, brands, individuals, … it’s a way to show your potential and existing customers who you are, what you do, and what you can offer. The better the presentation, the better your chances of gaining and retaining a clientele. That is why having a quality and modern website is key and should not be underestimated.
