3 Web Design Myths That All Beginners MUST Break Away from in Order to Start Seeing More Income in Your Business
Getting your mindset right is the #1 thing you have to conquer if you want to succeed in the website. As the popular saying goes, “You are your worst enemy and best asset”. Here are 3 web design myths that all beginners MUST break away from in order to start seeing more income in your business.
From serving many 1:1 private clients and students from all walks of life over the last 10 years, I can tell you that the best and most successful customers are those with the right mindset and attitude, who have the right beliefs about web design.
It’s myth-busters time, my friend! Time to re-align your perspectives and make things right 🙂
Myth #1: “You have to spend $1000’s to have a nice website”
First of all, yes! Your website is an investment. But like any investment, it’s up to you to decide how much and when to make that investment. I always recommend starting out slow with your website when you are just starting your business.
Wix is an amazing website platform that can help you get your website up and running fast and at a low cost.
As your business grows, so will your website. As you start to develop more products and services in your business, you will need to update your website and possibly move to a platform such as WordPress that can handle all of your website needs.
Myth #2: “You need to be the top expert of all experts to start a blog”
This is SO not true. The beautiful thing about the world we live in today is that there is a need for more and more people to step up and tell their story. That is what a blog can do for you.
If you have been considering starting a blog but you aren’t sure if any will want to read it, just consider one thing. How many times have you recommended things to people you know? How many times have they come to you for recipes, ideas, advice, productivity hacks, and a million other things? If you said yes to any of these things, you are qualified to start a blog.
I have personally had customers just like you who still made it work, so I know that you can too!
Myth #3: Everyone else is already doing what I want to do.
I can totally understand why someone would believe in this as I’ve been there myself, but I have seen time and again that this is actually a good thing.
Let me tell you, I’m not the only web designer in the world. But I still show up for my clients every day. Because the truth is, there is no possible way that I could actually design the 1000’s of websites that are launched every day.
And there is another little secret I will let you in on. I don’t have competition. I have colleagues. I don’t consider other web designers to be someone I have to compete with. In fact, we often get together for a chat or recommend each other when we are full-on clients. And it’s honestly just a really nice way to run our businesses.
Why is believing in these 3 myths problematic?
Because believing in these 3 myths will stop you from taking action the right action. Your confidence gets affected, you don’t seek guidance, and subsequently, you don’t transform your business as a result.
As someone who does web design for a living, I have seen breakthrough after breakthrough and I know that is not difficult to share your wonderful gifts with the world, people just don’t have the right guidance to succeed when it comes to their website.
Many people search for information online fruitlessly, and when that doesn’t work, they give up. I don’t want you to give up because I can you can do this!
How else will there be millions of online businesses if it was so hard? So they are all geniuses? No… they did it by taking that first step, showing up everyday, making lots of mistakes, and growing their business.
So take heart. You can do this! Don’t for a second doubt yourself.
