Description

This course is designed to teach you the ins and outs of Photoshop, even if you have little to no experience with it! The goal is to learn how to design fantastic looking websites  in Photoshop and create a high monthly income from them. 

Through this course you'll find out how to become a successful freelancer designer on crowdsourcing platforms such as 99designs, crowdspring, designcrowd, and more! I'll teach you, from my own vast experience, how to get ahead of your competition and create website designs in Photoshop that your clients will love!

I've made over $50,000 by doing the things I describe in this course so I know what it takes to succeed on these platforms. It's not about talent or being creative! I figured it out to a point where anybody can do it if they have the right information and skill set. This is what this course teaches you!

Learn how to make your workflow more efficient so you can spend less time completing projects and more on getting new clients. Outwit the competition and work smarter, not harder. Again, please note, there's no coding required! The only thing you'll have to deliver is a layered PSD file. Don't worry, that's covered in the course as well.
