You don’t have to be a superstar web developer to make a living making websites. For those of you who prefer a hands off aproach you can ever outsource the work using a freelancer site.
For everyone else, it is easy to learn how to become a web developer online and you can take to YouTube or join sites such as Udemy to learn specialist skills from experts in web development.
It is worth specialising in a particular topic and many web developers find that they can get a lot of work just focusing on developing sites for one CMS (Content management system).
The most popular web development platforms are Wordpress and Shopify is also becoming increasingly popular with customers who are looking for an easy “Out of the Box” solution for ecommerce.
