Learn How to Get Your First $20,000 Web Design Client

By Ray DelVecchio

Websites are the marketing hub for every business that’s online.

WordPress is the technology that powers most of them.

That means knowing how to use WordPress is a valuable skill.

You can get paid to create websites that help small businesses get more eyeballs with traffic from search and social media.

Ultimately you decide how much you want to earn and work. The goal is to maximize your profit per hour as your efficiency improves.

Don’t let advertising trick you!

WordPress web design is NOT a get-rich-quick scheme.

Have you ever estimated a project timeline that took you 2-3X as long?

This same phenomenon happens with every new task you take on — that includes your business goals.

Nearly everyone expects to reach $100,000 in a year or less. Otherwise, you consider your efforts a failure and give up. Then you grudgingly return to your 9-5 office life and complain about your boring job, terrible boss, or both.

Why not take the opposite (a.k.a. realistic) mindset?

Expect small wins over time with consistent effort.

Pairing that with recurring income reduces risk and increases your long-term chance of compounding freelancing success.

Trust + relationships win.

Most of my current income is from clients I’ve worked with for 5+ years, and it takes time to establish any relationship that long.

If you’re wondering whether there is an opportunity near you, it’s easy to do the research.

Search for business websites near you, then note who built them. You will see trends emerge, along with all types of designs — good, bad, and downright ugly!

Many business owners have bad past experiences with a freelancer across the world or big companies with cookie-cutter templates.

They want someone local.

How I started as a web designer.

Before I started web design freelancing, I made money selling promotional products.

The largest check I received was ~$25,000 for embroidered polo shirts to stock a company store. Fulfilling the order stressed me for months and pushed my credit limit to the max.

Soon after, I lost that corporate client and a giant income source was gone.

This experience led me to go all-in with my WordPress skills since I was far more passionate about that than selling apparel (which is boring).

I had been learning HTML and WordPress on the side since college and did a little low-cost labor for friends & family.

Then I got my first client, a roofer.

I built a simple 6-page website for his company. The following day we met at his home office. He liked what he saw and then handed me $500 in cash.

That was a cool moment.

The best part is he still pays me monthly.

Today, multiple clients have crossed $20,000 all-time income.

That’s the power of recurring revenue!

It’s time to write your success story.

I know you can achieve the same success and get “forever clients.”

So go ahead and steal my web designer starter pack of website layouts, tools, business spreadsheets, and step-by-step video training to hit the ground running with freelancing.

Web design can be a side-hustle where you do everything or outsource 100% of the work while focusing on landing clients and big-picture project management.

You never know what a business relationship might turn into in five years.

But I know getting lucky usually happens by sticking through hard times over a long period.

There is no magical moment to start. You must commit, or it’ll never happen.

I hope you take this proven blueprint and springboard off it to land local clients like many other Business Pro members and I have!

Ray’s course gave me the confidence to start my own web design business. My favorite aspect of the course is its emphasis on building a sustainable income through web design, rather than just freelancing.

The worksheets provided in the course, including marketing package and profit calculator sheets, have been invaluable in setting up my business model.

Membership in the course also grants access to community resources, such as forums, and Q&A’s with Ray. When I am confused or unsure about anything, these resources help me move forward.

He continues to this day to be a mentor to me and my business.

Thanks, Ray, please keep up the good work.

About the Instructor


Hi there! My name is Ray DelVecchio.

I got my Master’s Degree in Computer Engineering… then decided I didn’t want to work for someone else.

Instead, I pursued my passion for building websites while going broke in the process.

Having gone through that trial-and-error, I want to teach you exactly how to create your web design business from scratch.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does the charge appear on my statement?

My company name is D2 Designs and Imprints, LLC and your membership charge(s) will appear on your card statement as: WEBSITEPROFITCOURSE

What are the prerequisites?

The only thing you need to do is be able to deliver a professional website for a client.

Even if you lack that knowledge, the membership includes tutorials and “starter” websites that you can download vs. creating from scratch.

What do I actually get?

When you create an account, you’ll have instant access to everything – click here to see what’s included!

It’s everything you need to start freelancing with confidence from day one.

How often is the membership area updated?

New courses and tools are added/updated regularly, and you can post to the private member forum to ask anything or share your progress.

I encourage all members to recommend ideas for new tools & tutorials.

Is this offer risk-free?

Yes, the offer is 100% risk-free. You have 30-days from the date of purchase to receive a full refund if you are not completely satisfied. No questions asked.

Is freelancing risky?

I’m not recommending you quit your job today without any savings and a mortgage on the line. You have to be smart about that type of risk.

One thing I’m certain of, however, is few people are passionate about their current employer’s mission.

You’re likely frustrated with boring work, a bad boss, stagnant salary, or worse – being laid off.

What’s stopping you from taking the first step towards freelancing?

You might say you’re not good enough or don’t have what it takes.

I call BS on that.

It’s the story inside your head.

❌ Fear of looking dumb
❌ Fear of rejection
❌ Fear of failure

We all feel these emotions. You bet I did at the start of my journey, and still do to this day.

But what’s the alternative to giving freelancing an honest shot?

Your BIGGEST risk is leaving your fate in someone else’s hands. With one decision, your income can go to zero.

The standard career track at a company is a thing of the past.

In our fast-paced world, freelancers with flexibility have the most leverage to control their income.

The best method to diversify is with recurring revenue spread across many clients.

Your income compounds, while your risk of a catastrophic drop (like I had) is significantly lower.

Let me help you make that leap and avoid beginner mistakes with my exact business blueprint!

Are there additional costs to start my freelance web design business?

I pay for premium software and services like Dropbox, Adobe Creative Cloud, WordPress themes & plugins, etc.

You also must register a domain name and set up web hosting to get online for every website you build.

Your costs will vary, but the starting costs are low (under $1,000).

One good client pays for EVERYTHING. Then the biggest expense is your time, the rest is profit.

The specific details of setting up a business are different in each state/province. You must look into this – I am not a lawyer or accounting professional!
