Every week my email inbox is overflowing with marketing emails that, for the most part, are not very interesting. But a few weeks ago I got an email from the guys at LearnWebDevelopment.com that really caught my attention. I met these guys at a conference last year, and they invited me to check out their program. After spending some time with them and exchanging a slew of emails, I realized they had a pretty unique program, and this was something my readers would be interested in.

In the spirit of full disclosure, I want to be extremely transparent with my readers. Because I’m such a fan of their product I’ve partnered with them to be an affiliate to help promote their training. They offer a great product and I will receive compensation from them if you purchase their training, so it’s a win-win for everyone.

Here’s Why I Like Them

Their training courses can teach just about anybody the foundational web design skills needed to make a living. They offer a lot of valuable insight, not just in design and development, but also the business aspect of things. Plus, their program is way cheaper than college tuition. They train their students to be freelance web designers (studies are showing freelancers make 29% more per year than designers with “real” jobs—that’s over $10k!) and arm them with the skills they need.

Here’s Why Other People Like Them

They have some major experience and they’re experts themselves. So far these guys have taught over 31,052 students how to make bank doing website design and development. And their grads have designed sites for all sorts of companies—from local mom and pops to top companies like Apple, Blockbuster, AT&T, HP, Merrill Lynch, Nordstrom, the Dallas Cowboys, Sony, Procter and Gamble, ESPN, Sprint… I could go on and on.

Here’s Why You’ll Like Them

If you think you need an expensive college degree to get a job in web design, you’re wrong. Web design DOES NOT require a fancy degree from a four-year school. You just need some solid training, and when it comes down to it, all you really need is a killer portfolio. The guys at LearnWebDevelopment.com have one of the best programs I’ve seen for web design and development training.

Only 41% of college grads find a job in their desired field within three years of graduating. And when you study web design at a traditional school, the course material is almost always dated. So when you get your degree, it’s in the previous generation of design. Not too useful.

The thing I really like about LWD is that they provide live online classes, one-on-one support, and recorded video training. And their support is specialized. So if you have a question about design and development, marketing, social media, or anything else, you’ll get an answer from an expert in that field.

They teach next-generation methods on the hottest design platforms. You’re not just learning how to make a website. You’re learning how to run a design company, which is awesome. A lot of their training focuses on building a successful business, including:

  • Which questions to ask your clients

  • Templates for the documents you’ll need (like quotes and contracts)

  • How to build efficiencies into your process

  • How to drive traffic and generate leads with your website

  • Tips for building a team

All of this will help you work less hours and make more money. You can use this knowledge on your clients’ sites too, so not only can you build a website they’ll be proud of, you can help them increase their revenues, as well.

Of course, they also cover all of the “nuts and bolts” training you’ll need to design and develop websites that your clients will love. From basic design theory to eCommerce, and everything in between, you’ll get all the technical skills you’ll need to build a website that gives your clients exactly what they want.

They also have an Internship Program, which allows qualifying students to hone their skills—and earn some money—on real-world projects. This program will give you the experience you need to be successful on your own projects, and in your own business.
