Hi, What do you think is the best idea to focus on when becoming a freelance front end developer? How do I stand out?

Small companies and individuals can make their own websites so easily with for instance Wordpress and Wix. So where should I focus on when switching into this business? Thanks in advance!!

Hi! I have the same goal too. I think it's helpful to check other web developer's sites/portfolios and notice the difference. Wordpress and Wix are quick but also have their own limits. It's always better to know how to build things from the ground up.

And plus you have more room for creativity!

Here are some examples of inspiring web dev's portfolio :)


Thank you so much!!
