    To be a successful freelance web developer, you’ll need a combination of coding and business skills.
    To be a successful freelance web developer, you’ll need a combination of coding and business skills.
    Coding abilities – Web developers should be competent to code. To get started, learn HTML, CSS, and Javascript. If you’re starting from scratch, you can learn to code through free and paid online and offline classes or boot camps.
    At the absolute least, you can start freelancing if you know HTML and CSS. You can use a content management system like WordPress or WebFlow if you don’t want to deal with coding. This is a path that many successful freelancers take, and it’s perfectly appropriate.
    New freelance web developers frequently make the mistake of not seeing their work as a development company. Building a business requires a unique mix of skills, including marketing, bookkeeping, and management, among others.

    @bolarinwasogogmail-com I accept every point you’ve highlighted but the one I do not understand and fail to accept is “unlearn” what do you mean by that sir and how do we unlearn to succeed in the field.

    No matter the complexity of our brain,there is a limitation to what it can hold at a time. Their are some web technologies that are so outdated that retaining them might hinder your progress in the tech world.
    They are better unlearned to appreciate the efficiency of the relevant and useful technologies
