If you’re looking to get into internet, you’ll need to start somewhere. It’s very helpful to have spent a lot of time browsing the net, but treating it as a business is another thing entirely. Check out these web design tips to get some idea of what you’ll be facing if you decide to follow this career path.
Your purpose is not to tell people what they want. Businesses have marketing departments, and anyway, even if they’re completely misguided about what will influence their clients, they’re coming to you for your expertise on dealing with the web, not for your taste or your ideas about what will draw people. Of course, it’s good to be able to offer them some insight on how people will interact with their site, but you’re not their main marketing person; they have a department for that.
Neither is it necessary for you to learn every possible aspect of every possible web language. The basics of any of them are very clear, but the more intricate nuances are extremely subtle. It’s okay to use a visual editor; you don’t necessarily need to know every possible command by heart, just have some idea how it all fits together. It’s good to have a mix of people on your team who together know something about everything, but not every single one needs to be an expert on all of it. Labor can be divided pretty efficiently if everyone knows what they are and aren’t good at, as well as what their colleagues are and aren’t good at.
