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!

Josh Hall and members of Web Designer Pro™
“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.


“The best thing about Josh’s course is that he’s offering lessons learned the hard way from his own experience. This isn’t like reading a textbook or watching YouTube tutorials, this is the hard truth about what works and what doesn’t when it comes to building a successful web design business. And being a freelancer, I love that this course is just as applicable to my business as it would be to someone managing a team or building an agency. It’s a game-changer, to say the least. Thanks so much Josh!”

“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 has helped me increase my income and I’m a lot more confident asking for more money as I’ve often de-valued my services. Me & my family thank you!”

– Chris U. (US)

“This course really helped me find the first clients that were able to pay quite a lot of money for my services – much more than I used to get!”

– Richard P. (Czech)


Here’s a look at some actual results students are getting:

This is just an example of a recent student I sent one of my sales scripts to who used it to help land a $3,500 project after the client was questioning anything over the $500-$1,000 range.

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.

This is a look at an email that was sent to me from one of my students who took his business to 6-figures in less than 12 months using all the tactics, methods, strategies and resources provided in the course!

You can actually hear more about this students’ story in episode 023 of my podcast as we talk in detail about what he did to bring his business from $0-6 Figures in one year.

Here’s a message I got from a student who used the exact process, systems and strategies I show in the course to land his first deal for $3,497!!! Not too shabby for a first website job. How much did you charge for your first website design? 😉

I’ll show you how to do the same through the course!

2 weeks, 2 new website projects after implementing the business course processes and sequences 💪

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.


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.

  1. Galilee Potgieter

    This course was packed with templates and valuable insight into the structure and organization of a web design business. I would definitely class it as valuable, worth the time and an absolute must to anyone wanting to seriously make a living at web design. I am looking forward to implementing everything I learnt in my own business. Thank you Josh!

  2. cycle924

    Holy Cow! So much important information, this helps me become well-prepared for the business of doing business successfully as a small business website designer. Thanks Josh, I’ll be returning to this course many times as a valuable resource to get it all done right!
    -Shawn K.

  3. Pandora Taylor-Cheal

    Josh’s business course is such an inspiration.

    Whilst I knew we created great work, our processes and organisation needed an overhaul to get us to the next level and that is exactly what Josh’s course has given us.

    Josh delivers the course in such a down to earth authentic and supportive way, provides tonnes of interaction, and bonus material.

    Really excited to launch our 2.0 version of our business incorporating lots of Josh’s suggestions!!

    Thanks so much!

  4. Robyn Fehrenbacher

    I first discovered Josh through his podcast, and that’s where I started to know, like, and trust him. I just completed his Web Design Business Course, and I can’t say enough good things about it. Josh’s teaching style is down to earth, no fluff, and with a genuine desire for his students to succeed by using his methods, templates, and experiences from more than a decade in web design that he so generously shares. Such a classy guy and what a worthwhile investment! Thanks so much Josh!!

  5. mooredesigndan

    Since Josh shows the way when building his business, it really opened my eyes, and it gives me hope to grow my entrepreneur business. I’ve gotten one client, via pro-bono, but I’m excited to continue growing. If you have any interest in growing a web design business and living the life of your dreams, then this is the course for you!

  6. kellymstadler

    I’m taking your advice and going to charge for the next one. Your course is amazing! It really gives me the confidence to move forward and feel like I’m not fumbling so much. There really is years of knowledge there and I’m so thankful for all of the hard work put into it! I love how you give practical advice and actionable steps. You are straight to the point with all the needed email templates, the sample client contract, how to calculate your pricing, how to receive content, when and how to scale your business, and the overall flow of running a web design business. This was so helpful for me and I’m excited to be upgrading to the bundle!

  7. Dana Wilson

    This course is amazing! As a beginner to design and entrepreneurship, it probably would have taken me years to learn everything Josh covers. He goes above and beyond in each lesson and clearly cares about helping students and sharing everything he can. I know this course will serve me way beyond the week or so it took me to complete it. I will be referring back to it constantly as I start my business and eventually scale and expand. Highly recommend!

  8. John Murphy

    The Web Design Business Course that Josh offers is an absolute treasure trove of practical, down-to-earth, actionable information that I have not found elsewhere. In fact, the guidance Josh offers is far more valuable to me than the MBA in marketing I have, and which I consider to be a waste of time and money. You’ll find real info here about pricing, acquiring new clients, onboarding new clients, and keeping a constant stream of leads coming to your site plus other advice from someone who’s actually done it. I wish I’d found this course years ago! Just get it now — you can thank Josh later!

  9. Becky Troup

    The Web Design Business Course gave me the handholding I needed for various areas of starting my business. Not having to piece together a client onboarding checklist is a lifesaver, and that’s just one of the many resources provided. For web designers who want to get working sooner instead of being bogged down with figuring out administrative tools, creating templates, and learning the hard way what saves you time in the long run, this is the right course.

  10. April Ray

    I implemented the new funnel pages from Josh’s business course (contact form, fit and pricing page, website questionnaire, etc.) and have already received two leads since Friday!

    Per my old business coach, I use to have it where you had to book a call to contact me about a quote and in 10 months of having that up I received ZERO leads through my contact page and form. Set up this new contact/quote system last week and already have two! I can already see this is SUCH a better fit for my business! Thanks Josh!

  11. Drew Baldridge

    Listen! It does not matter what type of business you are trying to build. The practical advice given in Josh’s Web Design Business Course is for anyone wanting to build structure, systems and processes into their business model, whether a freelancer or a small business. My main business genre is video production, however, I am talking away a load of great advice and solid business practices that I plan to apply to my non-web design centered business. I cannot even begin to describe just how beneficial this course was for me. It is worth every dollar and I have no doubt, that what is gained by taking it will supersede by far, any price of admission.

  12. Ricardo Elizondo

    How do you describe a course that saves you 5 years (or more) of mistakes in your Web Design journey?

    I would describe it as priceless. That’s what this Josh’s Web Design Business Course is and I’m very grateful to have invested in it. Literally, the downloadable templates alone pay for the course. And that’s only a small part of the value Josh brings.

    In short, this course allowed me to solidify my pricing, services, contracts and internal processes to do more with less time.

    Most importantly, Josh shares all his knowledge in a transparent and honest way.

    Note: I am from Costa Rica and the course content worked perfectly for my context.

  13. Alexis Myers

    I originally found Josh because I was searching for a web designer contract template. That search led me to his FB group, which then led me to his website and courses, and what a goldmine I landed on.

    Not only is he an excellent teacher who breaks down the details so you get everything you need, but he also goes ABOVE AND BEYOND giving you way more than you could have ever hoped for.

    Literally, no one should start a web design business without going through Josh’s course. You will leave so incredibly equipped to start and even scale your business.

    I landed my first e-commerce client charging more than I’ve ever charged for a website before, all thanks to the course material and Josh’s help in the FB group.

    I never would have had the confidence or wherewithal to charge what I did without the backup of the “hidden pages” I had in place, the complete lead generation/client intake system, the contract, proposal, and email templates, etc., and the added encouragement and advice he gave.

    Every single part of what he’s offered in this course has helped me launch my business AND work with clients with confidence, and I couldn’t be more grateful!!

  14. Shannon Morris

    I learned SO much from this course and am very glad I decided to buy it. I watched the videos a couple months ago but I refer back to several of them still. Josh gives tons of detail about each topic and shows you inside his business so that you can shave off tons of time figuring it out on your own. He’s very specific and doesn’t tell you something vague about what you should do in your business without giving you a template, an example, or a tool to use. I have gained so much value from every video in this course – there’s no fluff or wasting your time. He’s a great teacher and mentor to have – definitely get this course!

  15. Jeremy Collins

    I am thoroughly impressed with the amount of detail that Josh has put into this course. It has been a complete game-changer for me and my business.

    You’ll save hundreds of hours just from implementing his sales scripts and client questionnaires because Josh already knows what works and what doesn’t. I went into this course with very little sense of direction in my business, and now I know exactly what to do with a prospect at any given point in the buyer’s journey.

    Josh also teaches you his processes that save time and increases your chances of getting a conversion. My favorite example of this is his process of qualifying leads. I can’t tell you how many proposals I’ve sent to prospective clients who were most likely never going to follow through. Now I have a super simple system that qualifies every lead that comes in, saving me countless hours of drafting proposals for clients who can’t afford my rates or may not be a good fit for my business.

    This is the first course that I’ve purchased from Josh, and I was hesitant to sign up at first. Josh even mentioned that he saw I added and removed the course from my cart several times before finally committing. After going through the course, I can confidently say that I made a fantastic decision. The p̶r̶i̶c̶e̶ investment of this course is highly undervalued for what it delivers. It’s without a doubt the single best thing I’ve done for my business all year, and I’ve only just begun to put all of the pieces together in my brand new set of systems.

    Thanks, Josh!

  16. Chris Salvaggio

    5 Stars TWICE and two thumbs up!

    I want to start off by saying I am so excited!

    Before even completing the course I used Josh’s exact system, the same exact tools, and just simply did exactly what he trains on, and I closed my first web development sale for $3497 for a medium-sized site. It was the first lead I pitched out the gate too. I even hand drew my concept and presented it via video as Josh suggested. I have nothing but praise for this man Josh Hall. I have never had a mentor before but I believe this is what it must be like. When you take a course like this or any course, the value proposition is the most important thing. This class has taken me from a competent web designer to a confident CEO of my own agency. I use the resources page at the end of the course for reference almost every day. I can’t wait to take all of the courses offered. I could not be more grateful. Thank you Josh!

  17. sandyburns

    The best thing about Josh’s courses is that he’s offering lessons learned the hard way from his own experience. This isn’t like reading a textbook or watching YouTube tutorials, this is the hard truth about what works and what doesn’t when it comes to building a successful web design business. And being a freelancer, I love that this course is just as applicable to my business as it would be to someone managing a team or building an agency.

    Throughout the course, Josh is transparent about his own business. You get to see what tools he uses, what processes he has in place for client and project management, and learn how those processes have been honed over the years. It will save you a ton of time, because if you don’t take his course, you WILL learn these lessons on your own… the hard way.

    No matter where you are in your web design journey, whether you’re just starting out, or you’ve been at this for a few years (like me), you can benefit from this course. It’s a game-changer, to say the least. Thanks so much Josh!

  18. Adam Wills

    I’m so glad that Josh charges a flat fee for this course and not a commission on my business’s projected revenue after taking his course. If he did, I’m certain he’d be a multi-millionaire. Seriously… that’s how valuable this course is! If you’re looking to propel your web design business into 6 figures and beyond, this course is a must. Even if you just want to streamline your business so you can live the lifestyle you want to live, this course is for you.

    I was hesitant to take this course at first because I felt like I already had a pretty good system in place. But I took the course anyway because I am always looking to improve in all areas of my business. This course is about so much more than just gaining knowledge or sharing philosophies and principles. Josh actually gives away EVERYTHING that has put his own business on autopilot and made it successful. In fact, I would say that is the single greatest value in this course. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not that Josh’s talking head videos aren’t packed with tons of value, but he actually let’s you swipe all of his templates, automations, and processes in a way that makes them simple to adopt into your own existing practices.

    Thanks to Josh, and this course, I’m starting off my 2020 feeling confident and ready for growth. My advice: quit reading these reviews and just buy the course already. You won’t regret it, trust me!

  19. Josh Collier

    This course covers a lot of the pain points of web design and development businesses. Josh talks about some of the more difficult topics such as scope creep, getting clients, retaining clients and getting content from them. Josh does it in a clear and easy to understand way and leads you through a plan that will really get your processes built.

    He is really good at sharing his own personal experiences as well as trials and tribulations and the solutions needed in hopes that you can avoid them in your own business.

    Overall it was a very practical course full of actionable steps to streamline or scale your business to use your time as efficiently as possible.

    Thanks for the great course!

  20. mikethemacguy

    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!

  21. Martin Robson

    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.

  22. Christian van ‘t Hof

    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!

  23. Patty Schuster

    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.

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.

  24. Rob Stephens

    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!
