Hi everyone! I'm a newbie. I want to ask if being a Web designer is enough to start this Internet Marketing. Is Programming skill a necessity and which language is good for startup? I though there are ready made designs which only requires some Visual redesigning without the need of modification at the programming level.
Thanks for the help

What exactly are you planning to do? Programming isn't necessary however it may be very useful. A good language to be fluent in is PHP, as this is the most common prgramming language on the web. However there are always ready made scripts that just require some cosmetics.

Well, just for starting, HTML, and then PHP, and maybe for some stuff javascript, or ajax.

I feel that you don't have to do everything yourself. Why not outsource some or get a partner. In the internet marketing business, designing and programming the sites are not enough. You have to possess some leadership skills and be able to offer some directions to your clients.

if you do and can create a website, even in basic ways. i think this would be enough, more the less you have the internet marketing experience.

Programming is very useful if you are developing a site. Being a web designer is not enough if you really want a good-looking and functionable site.

Each designer must be familiar with HTML and CSS ...
It is enough to design a site ...
Any other knowledge is welcome (Php, asp, javascript etc) ...

Why not offer both services, and charge accordingly?

I'd also suggest that you study Sales/Marketing/affiliate marketing/SEO for a year or two. With all of these combined, you can be VERY VERY successful online starting your own websites and creating unique programming for them.

Hi,

Web designing and programming is two different aspects in IT. Web designing is used to create a mockup design with the help of number of designing platform like photoshop, dreamviewer etc but in other hand the programming is used to develop web application, desktop application in different platform like Java, .net etc.

Thanks

I work with a developer who can design pretty well. I design, and I can play around with code. ( I would never describe myself as a developer.) But I've found working closely together has been successful. It's good for both to have some knowledge of each one.

Marketing, programming and web design are all the different things :) I think you should read some articles on these topics before to start. Then try yourself in every niche to see what is the best for YOU.

First thing you should have a little bit idea about internet marketing SEO and if you want to go programming side then concentrate on php coding.

Now a days jquery is also essential.
all the best.

Creative Inspiration: 10 Principles of Design

Graphic design is much more than learning how to use the tools within Photoshop. It requires an intimate understanding of the relationship between different objects.

This series of paper art poster designs by Efil Türk covers 10 design principles that are core to any designer's success.

1. Balance

"Balance as a design principle, places the parts of a visual in an aesthetically pleasing arrangement."

2. Hierarchy

"Visual hierarchy is the order in which the human eye perceives what it sees. This order is created by the visual contrast between forms in a field of perception."

3. Pattern

"Pattern uses the art elements in planned or random repetition to enhance surfaces or paintings."

4. Rhythm

"Rhythm is the repetition of visual movement of the elements-colors, shapes, values, forms, spaces, texture."

5. Space

"Space is an empty place or surface in or around a work of art. Space can be two-dimensional, three-dimensional, negative and/or positive."


6. Proportion

"Proportion refers to the relative size and scale of the various elements in a design. The issue is the relationship between objects, or parts, of a whole."

7. Emphasis

"It creates a focal point in a design; it is how we bring attention to what is most important."

8. Movement

"The way the artist leads the eye in, around, and through a composition. Movement in a visual image occurs when objects seem to be moving in a visual image."

9. Contrast

"The combination of different elements of design to highlight their differences and/or create balance."

10. Unity

"Unity means the harmony of the whole composition. The pats of a composition made to work together as a total visual theme."
