Monetize your web design projects

Friday, January 7th, 2011 by Servage

It’s not easy being a web designer nowadays. You get a lot of competition from other designers, agencies, and even kids making websites as a hobby for their parents’ friends’ or relatives’ companies. As a traditional web developer who can create everything from the initial concept to the final product, it’s hard to keep up with agencies that employ specialists. This is, however, not meant to be a petty-call for web designers ;-) Actually I just want to give struggling designers another perspective, another opportunity. Instead of approaching customers directly, trying to sell whole projects, or rely on customers coming to you: Try selling your design projects online. There are numerous platforms that allow you to sell you designs. Preferably you can convert them into templates that fit the most popular web platforms, such as WordPress, Drupal, Typo3 etc.

One of these marketplaces is Themeforest. They are quite popular, have a lot of sales, and there are examples of single templates in the 10-30 Dollar price-class making tens of thousands in revenue. So, if you’re currently without a project, or just want to try something new. Create a template for sale!
