“Josh really lifts the lid on what goes into running a 6-figure web design business with a remote team and covers everything you need to know. I think this course is an absolute bargain.”

– Rob S. (UK)

“This course was really worth the investment. Currently I’m in the process of going freelance to full time and it helped prepare me and give me the confidence to get started.”

– Christian H. (Brazil)

“The course is exactly what I have come to expect from Josh – and more. Great content, patient and thorough approach – and no stone is left unturned. Josh will instruct you on everything you’d want to know and also will go over topics you never even thought of. He’s been there and made the mistakes (now you don’t have to) and had the successes (and now you can, too). This course is a MUST for anyone who wants to get serious about making web design into an actual business. Highly recommended!” Mike H.

“Josh’s Web Design Business Course has been such a blessing as I transition from graphic design to web design. This info would have taken me YEARS to gather on my own. It has also given me the most important thing I need to get started working with clients – confidence. Josh is a natural at teaching – he explains everything in an easy to understand way, and makes learning enjoyable. I’m so glad I decided to take this course, it truly is the best investment I could have made as I start my web design business.” Patty S.

“What I really enjoy are the real world examples. Josh doesn’t just say “use form x” but actually shows us an actual example of form x that he has used with a real customer. You can see that this is not a theoretical course but is based on real life. It’s the same for the processes he walks thorough – you get to see them actually used. This includes money examples too – we get to see real figures. This is so helpful.

The overall combination of transparency, solid advice and downloadable checklists and other documents is a winner.” Martin R.

Meet Your Guide

When I got into web design, I was just hoping to make enough money on the side to pay my bills and eventually decided to take my web design business full time. I’ve since then grown my business from a part-time side hustle ($12k in 2011) now to a full time, 6-figure freelance web design business with a growing, remote team.

When I started however, I didn’t have a guide; I learned the hard/time-consuming way by failing, fumbling through projects, keeping my rates too low, etc. I struggled to build my business for far too long which is why I’m so passionate about sharing what I’ve learned the hard way with you so you can build your business fast and effectively.

I’ve also invested in thousands of dollars of business coaching which is filtered down directly to you through this course, an in-depth training guide on how to build a 6-figure web design business (modeled after mine) which you can apply to build and grow your own successful, freelance web design business or agency!

Full transparency.

This is a look at my actual growth chart since starting my web design business in 2011. I’ll be sharing real stats, actual numbers and showing you what I did from 2017-2018 which helped me make a massive jump in revenue.

Personally, I hate when teachers talk in hypothetics and are too general and vague about “business growth.” I want real numbers, specifics and to hear from someone who’s at my level. And that’s what you’ll get that in this course.

When you join the course, you’ll get access to my scripts and sales templates to use and apply to your business. This screenshot was taken from a Facebook Chat we had in July 2019.

A few additional notes:

$
This is not a website design course. It’s on the “business” end of things including sales, project management, content collection, etc. It’s not a technical skills or design course.
$
While I use a certain set of tools for project management, invoicing, etc, you can apply the templates provided in the course to any platform you prefer or already have in place.
$
This course isn’t specific to Divi. In certain lessons, I do use Divi and WordPress but these methods can be applied to a business utilizing ANY web design platform or theme.
$
This course does not cover the web design process. I have a separate course on that which can be applied perfectly along side to this one.

FAQ’S

Do I have access to all the lesson when purchased?
Absolutely! This is not a “drip style” course. You’ll have full access to go through any section and lesson you want, at any time.
Do I have lifetime access to the course?
You have full access to the course for as long as it’s up! (which should be a very long time ) There’s no enrollment deadline or course closing.
Will the course be added on to?
Yep! I plan to add on to the course periodically as long as it’s live. And when certain requests and questions come in, I’ll likely add extra lessons and resources to the course.
Are there tests or quizzes?
Heck no. No quizzes, tests or any sort of academic feeling with this course. It’s really more of a training guide. If you’re like me, you hate tests and had enough of those in school?
What format is the course in?

Each lesson will be in video walk-through format (like my tutorials) and accompanied by written posts. Vimeo does not support automatic captions or subtitles so those are not available which is one reason I accompany each video with written posts that cover what’s in the videos. Disclaimer: any teaser videos of the course footage on YouTube may display captions but that’s YouTube specific, again no captions or subtitles are available on the course videos currently.

Will the course ever close or expire?

This course contains information, methods and strategies that are mostly timeless so it will be up for a LONG TIME. As in years. It will be updated, added onto and any information that could potentially be outdated after a number of months or years will be revised.

    I have followed Josh for some time and have always enjoyed everything he does. When researching a topic or an issue with any of my sites, my first reaction is to search for the topic and add “Josh Hall” to the search – I don’t just want to know how to fix or design something, I want to know if Josh has covered the subject first and foremost. His easy-going style and knowledge – and willingness to share – is a great thing to have in my WordPress and Divi toolbox.

    Once I found out he was doing a business related course, I couldn’t wait to sign up. It is a decision I did not regret, and neither will you. The course is exactly what I have come to expect from Josh – and more. Great content, patient and thorough approach – and no stone is left unturned. Josh will instruct you on everything you’d want to know and also will go over topics you never even thought of. He’s been there and made the mistakes (now you don’t have to) and had the successes (and now you can, too). This course is a MUST for anyone who wants to get serious about making web design into an actual business. Highly recommended!

    I run my own web design & associated service business, which comprises me and occasional contributors. I already do a lot of what Josh talks about in this course – but he does it better! I’ve found it very helpful to validate that I’m on the right track with some of the things I am doing and how to improve in the things I haven’t yet nailed.

    What I really enjoy are the real world examples. Josh doesn’t just say “use form x” but actually shows us an actual example of form x that he has used with a real customer. You can see that this is not a theoretical course but is based on real life. It’s the same for the processes he walks thorough – you get to see them actually used. This includes money examples too – we get to see real figures. This is so helpful.

    The overall combination of transparency, solid advice and downloadable checklists and other documents is a winner.

    Hi Josh!

    Thanks for the great business course! Just finished it and I wanted to say that your course was really worth the investment.

    I was a bit hesitant about it being too focussed on the US, but more than 90% of all the content can easily be applied in Brazil as well.

    I’m in the middle of preparing my web design business to go from freelancer to full time, and after this course I’m more excited and more confident that I’m able to get it done.

    Thanks for all the great content and I’m quite sure it won’t take long before diving into another one of your courses!

    Josh lifts the lid on how he was able to grow a six-figure business working from home and with virtual assistants, without going down the traditional agency route, which is simply incredible!

    His tutorials are fun to watch and he covers all the topics you’d want to learn more about, such as pricing, getting new clients, maintaining clients etc. He also discusses some of his own experiences, which keeps the learning interesting.

    I couldn’t recommend his business course highly enough!
