How to Make a Living in Web Design Through the Coming Online Transition

Subscribe to the Podcast

[saf]

Sounds weird. Most people think the online explosion has already happened.

But, I don’t think we’ve seen anything yet.

And, I firmly believe that what we’re about to see is going to blow open the web design and development world and fundamentally change the way developers succeed forever.

Starting around 2003-2004, a similar shift happened.

I was a young web developer… in my first year learning code. Back then, everything was primarily text-based and built with tables (a sin today).

What hit me was a fundamental change to how the web worked.

It wasn’t a change in specification or some governing body getting together and making the change… it was really more of a unwritten consensus on how people wanted the web to work.

Google, WordPress, Facebook and whole slew of today’s tech giants were born out of this shift.

And, I was wiped of the map… by Web 2.0.

But, the coming shift is less about how sites are built and more about WHO is building them.

The source of this shift: the legitimacy of the web.

See, when I started everyone laughed at the web.

When I said I was going to learn to code and make my living off the internet, my family and friends thought I was crazy.

Nobody’s laughing now!

And more and more people are seeing the internet as their “way out”. In fact, it’s beyond that… they’re beginning to see it as required.

I think we’re in the middle of a global economic transition… from the industrial age into the high-tech age.

In the United States, before the Industrial Revolution… roughly 50% of all workers were involved in agriculture.

Today, as a result of the industrial revolution, only 2% of the U.S. population is involved in agriculture.

I think the same thing is happening now.

Soon, it’ll be robots doing most of the industrial manufacturing… and we’ll all be working on the tech that makes it happen.
 
Sounds a bit sci-fi, looney bin crazy, right?

Try going back to 1995 and explaining to someone then that we’d all be carrying around wallet-size phones, with touch screens that are connected to this thing called the “internet” which is like this virtual data and connection store……..

You might get committed.

Anyway, what all this means for you…

More and more people will be losing their jobs. More and more people are wanting freedom from their 9-5. More and more people want to secure their livelihood in this tumultuous time. More and more people will be willing to take risks as freelancers and entrepreneurs. And, as a result, more and more people will be coming online.

Your competition.

Not necessarily as web developers… but competitors for your potential clients’ attention.

Attention is the lifeblood of online success.

You have to get it and keep it.

Gary Vaynerchuk often says this about the internet:

“At the end of the day all we’re doing is: 1) getting people’s attention, 2) telling our story and 3) selling our stuff.”

I’m paraphrasing… but it’s 100% true.

A lot of developers will read this and think: “I don’t have to do this. I’m just going to get hired at a tech company. I’m not a freelancer.”

Not going to work much longer.

The competition for those jobs is increasing… and those companies are looking to hire developers that have proven they can succeed outside the infrastructure of a big tech company.

You have to get them to notice you.

And, the way you do that is the same way a freelancer gets clients.

So, what should you do as a result of all this?

  1. Get over this notion that you don’t need to learn this.
  2. Learn how to market yourself and build a personal brand.
  3. Start building your online presence NOW

You have an advantage because you’re ahead of the wave. In fact, by starting now you can set yourself up to profit from it.

To be a leader in your field FOR the millions coming online.

And you can secure your future and your income while everyone else around you is running around like chickens with their heads cut off.

Because this shift is not only a threat… it’s also an opportunity.

That’s why I constantly recommend Gary Vaynerchuk’s personal branding course. It’s like learning how to paint from Michaelangelo.

Gary has built two 60 million dollar businesses using the internet and social media and has a knack for really driving home the critical skills you need. Start the course here:

http://www.JohnMorrisOnline.com/Gary

And look, some of this might sound scary to you. You might have to put yourself out there in a way you never have before. But, trust me, you can do it!

I was a construction-working, football-playing “meat-head” before I started all this. You’re likely much smarter than me. So, if I can do it… you sure as hell can. Your future as a full-time web developer may very well depend on it:

How to Get a Web Design Job When You Don’t Have a Portfolio

This is the catch-22 every new web developer faces.

You’re not coding for your health. You desperately want to do this for a living. The freedom, the peace of mind, the control.

Feels like it’s right at your fingertips.

But, how do you get people to hire you (whether freelance or regular ‘ol corporate gig) when you’re just starting and don’t have a portfolio?

Pull a Da Vinci.

When you think of Leonardo Da Vinci, what do you think of? There’s a good chance one of the things you think of is what’s called the Vitruvian Man. It’s that anatomical sketch of a man with two poses superimposed over each other:

Da_Vinci_Vitruve_Luc_Viatour
Do you know what that is?

It was a sketch in his notebook. It now sits in a museum in Italy and is known as one of his iconic works.

Renaissance painters did this all the time.

It’s called a “study”… and many of these studies now sit in museums all over the world and are some of their more well-known works.

It’s also part of how they got work in their time.

Imagine some 15th century king or queen who wanted a painting of themselves and is out looking for the best artist. And, they see something like this and the depth of understanding Da Vinci or one of the others had about proportions and all that.

Think they might be convinced?

Do you know that despite the fact Da Vinci is known for being one of the most active artists of his time… he only painted about 20 paintings in his lifetime?

Much of what he’s known for are his studies and sketches.

So, how does this help you?

You do NOT need a portfolio filled with projects you did for clients!

Say this over and over until it clicks.

In fact, when you’re first starting how the hell would you have that? Sure, you could do free work for people.

But, fair warning: that’s dangerous.

When people don’t have to pay for your time, they’re much more likely to use it like it’s going out of style.

Avoid that hell and just do a few studies.

Create websites for nobody.

Just to put in your portfolio.

Of course, make them relevant to the services you’ll be offering… but nothing says your portfolio has to be only filled with projects for clients.

Those are better…

But, it’s not necessary.

Show people what you can do. Give them a taste of your skillset. And you can do this starting right now. You don’t have to wait on anybody.

If you’re starting out and struggling with this, there’s literally ZERO reason not to do this. Having a portfolio of “studies” is 100 times better than have no portfolio at all. Then, over time, replace your studies with actual client projects.

And you’re off to the races.

Now, if you’re wondering…

This is one of the things I’m going to be covering in-depth this month inside an exclusive course I’m releasing on Patreon.

It’s all about getting hired on Upwork.

And you can only get access to it when you become a supporting listener of the John Morris Show on Patreon.

Winners VS Losers: My Dad, Me and a Tale of Two Emails

I’m big on the mindset woo-woo stuff.

I’m a guy who grew up in fairly extreme poverty and my head warped by “poor man’s thinking”. Some people think that’s a myth.

It’s not.

Here’s an example:

My dad was in a car accident with my brother and I when I was 8. As a result, he was disabled and therefore eligible to receive disability payments from good ‘ol Uncle Sam. The idea was to help him out until he could get back on his feet, find a career that worked for him and get off of the disability payments.

It’s been 27 years since that accident. Guess who’s still on disability?

That was my childhood example. Never make too much income so the “free money” goes away. Those payments have almost killed my dad.

Seriously.

He completely vegged out. He became so inactive and destructive of his health that he developed type 2 diabetes… to the point he almost lost his legs. His breakfast, lunch and dinner was licorice and Pepsi because he didn’t have to worry about going to work. He got paid regardless.

For child-JMO… breaking out of the way of thinking took a lot of woo-woo stuff.

That’s why I talk so much about it.

Here’s another example of a loser mindset:

“You spam me with useless marketing rubbish or some link to some discounted service or course all the time, but I never see any emails that say “here’s a no-garbage tutorial on how to do such and such with PHP or whatever, without having to pay for crap”… Learning web languages is free for everyone – so why when I subscribe to learn from a professional like you, do I have to look at constant service advertising?”

Notice the entitlement?

Contrast that with this:

“After reading your email, I am a little angry. OK, we can not please everyone, but I think we have a little respect for people who give their time to share their knowledge. This kind of person, I also meet and their argument is jealousy. In short! I would still say congratulations and thank you for the great work you do! I am a young independent developer and I must say that each of your advice touched me. I love your honesty and outspoken. I listen your podcasts and read your emails with great attention. To return to the subject of your email, I got a contract because my solution was more relevant, but mostly, I have not spoken technique, but, I just spoke under the goalAnd that’s my client who explained that he had chosen me because, with me, he understood where and how to achieve his goal.

Losers are entitled, ungrateful, demanding… spoiled.

Winners are unassuming, grateful, honest… and take action!

But, don’t worry…

If you find your mindset isn’t on the winner side… you can change it. It takes that woo-woo stuff that loser #1 above doesn’t want to hear about, but it’s absolutely possible.

Here’s the most powerful thing I learned about making that switch:

Anything and everything you come across… even the most moronic or twisted ideas you might see (like a Bernie sanders speech) parse it out.

Find the value in it.

Don’t wholly accept or reject ideas. Don’t write people off because they belong to Team A or Team B. Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater.

Find the value and be grateful for it.

It’s there.

You just have to look.

Speaking of… you know what else winners do?

Why they become a supporting listener of the John Morris Show on Patreon… that’s what:

Go here to be a winner

That’s because they know they’ll get access to exclusive Patreon-only courses, all of my source code (even the paid stuff), and priority access to my Q&A.

Wanna be a winner? 😉

You know what to do.

P.S. Did you parse out the value in this post? Hint: I might have put it in big bold letters for you.

Should You Learn Node.js?

I get asked this all the time and some of my past statements may have been misleading so let me clear this up…

Because it will save you a lot of time.

If you don’t know, Node.js is a rapidly growing web server technology and Node developers are among some of the highest paid in the industry.

It was created by Ryan Dahl in 2009 and has become something of a buzzword in web development circles.

So, should you learn it?

Yes, if…

If you’re an experienced developer looking to expand your skillset OR you’re a new developer who is “all-in” on Node, then absolutely… go for it.

No, if…

If you’re an experienced developer who’s not sold on Node… it’s not a must-know right now.

If you’re a new developer and you know you want to learn PHP and all the rest… you should start with those.

​​​​​​​This complete web developer course is where you need to go.

Look, here’s the thing…

Every time a new technology like this comes out, there’s a group of people who say it’s the future of the web.

There are plenty of “futures of the web” that are now its history.

BUT…

That doesn’t mean there’s not opportunity there. As I mentioned, Node developers are some of the highest paid in the industry.

It’s being used by companies like Uber, Netflix, Walmart and a bunch of others.

So, if you know you want in on that… there’s no reason not to go for it.

This is the definitive guide to Node.js you’ll want.

But, I just don’t want you to get caught in this mindset that you have to learn every new thing that comes out.

You don’t.

Look at it. See if it’s a fit for you… and if so go for it.

But, ignore the know-it-alls that constantly tell you that you have to do this or you have to do that.

They’ve been wrong so many times your head would spin.

It’s YOUR life.

It’s YOUR career.

So, it’s YOUR choice.

Remember that.

Those clowns will throw you off track if you let them.

But, you can do this.

If a crotchety old ex-jock like me can do it… heaven knows you can!

Fridays Off: The BEST Way To Become A Full-Time Developer

He asked me this exact thing just two days ago.

In fact, 1000s of developers from all over the world, from every walk of life and in every kind of financial situation have asked me this exact same thing.

I love these guys.

They’re just like you and me.

Dads fighting to put food on the table without selling their soul to some boring 9-5.

Single moms scratching and clawing to give their kids a life as close to “normal” as they can hope for.

College kids… so optimistic and excited for their future.

I’ve experienced all of these things at one point or another in my life.

So, I know when they ask the question… it’s not just a question.

It’s THE question.

It’s the answer to the life they’re battling with right now.

Maybe the life YOU are battling with right now.

“I wish somebody would please just tell me what I need to learn to do this full-time! I’ll do whatever. I’m a hard-worker. I just need to know WHAT to do.”

I always sense a tinge of agony when somebody asks me this question. I remember it well.

It’s the question I battled with for several years when I first started learning web development.

And back then… there were no good answers.

That question kept me chained to my dead-end job at the local pizza joint.

Wasted 4 years of my life trying to learn the skills to do this full-time.

And made me give up several times.

Today, though, the answer is easy to find.

In fact, let me just give it to you.

Here’s exactly what you need to know to work full-time as a web developer:

  1. HTML 5: The bedrock of all web pages.
  2. CSS 3: The latest and greatest tricks for making stunning looking websites
  3. Javascript & jQuery: Essential for today’s interactive web
  4. PHP: The language every “big” website runs on. Crucial.
  5. MySQL: Robin to PHP’s Batman for creating interactive websites.
  6. Bootstrap: THE front-end web development framework.
  7. WordPress: Powers 26% of all websites. Must know.
  8. Mobile Apps: The mobile revolution is already here.

There it is. That’s the list.

“But wait… what about Node or Angular? And SASS and LESS? What about all the new stuff coming out?”

Look, that stuff is great… but it’s not necessary.

The list above is required. You HAVE to know how to do those things. The rest (right now) is just gravy. Learn it later.

Now, what if I told you that you could learn absolutely everything on that list for less than I spend on toilet paper each month (we do have 5 people in the house)?

Smart developers say, “where do I sign up?”.

Right here.

Check the list. Check the ratings. Check the number of students.

This is THE place to kick your boring 9-5 to the curb and start doing what you love for a living.

Unless you like your day job. Then ignore this post.

But, if you’re looking for a way out… or a way to never go there in the first place… here’s your ticket.

And, once you take control of your time and your money… if you wanna take Fridays off, you sure as hell can.

See you over there.
