Web development is one of the fastest growing online industries today. It’s important for every business to have an online presence and that represents a huge opportunity for you. Whether you want to code or not, you can capitalize on the over 24 billion dollars of money spent per year on web development services. Whether you want to work part-time or full-time, you can create an awesome portfolio and an even better income taking on web development projects.

In this course, I’m going to show you how to jumpstart your business, grow it quickly, and manage your business like a professional – all from the comfort of your laptop.

——————————————————————————

I’m Evan Kimbrell and I’m the founder of Sprintkick, a full service web & mobile application studio based out of San Francisco. Over the last 4 years I’ve personally overseen the launch of over 100 apps all the way from concept to deployment. I’ve grown my business 400% a year from one small client to 100+ clients. Today, we make apps for big name brands like Walmart, GNC, Dick’s Sporting Goods, and other Fortune 500 companies.

I see too many people floundering to start or grow their web development business because they don’t have the mentorship or the guidance to do it right. This course is my answer for all of you who have reached out for help. I’ve piled everything I know and everything that has made my business successful into this course. I created this course to teach you how you can hit the ground running with starting a web development business – even if you don’t want to code.

These are some of the questions this course will answer:

  • How do I make professional proposals without spending tons of money?
  • How do I spend less time looking for clients and more time building websites?
  • How do I take on larger projects and make more money?
  • How do I find clients?
  • How do I keep clients from going to the competition?
  • Which clients are the most profitable and how do I find them?
  • How do I get clients to accept my estimates?
  • How did other companies get so successful with web development?
  • How do I charge more for my services?
  • How can I bring in development partners to offload my work?

Why you should take this course:

  • Over 22+ hours of content and direct access to me, the instructor, as a guide and personal helper.
  • Learn step-by-step from someone who started and runs a very successful web development business.
  • Shorten your learning curve and protect yourself from making costly beginner mistakes.
  • Grow your business faster and with fewer hiccups along the way. See how the professionals do it.

  • Learn how to tailor your business to your lifestyle. If you want to work part time and free yourself up from the full time grind, this course shows you how.

Included in this course:

  • Free contract documents such as an NDA, a customizable standard web contract, and an addendum contract for extra work. All of these documents cost me over $5000, but are yours free as part of the course.
  • Free access to any course updates including case studies, projects, and collaborative discussions.
  • Learn on the go. All course lectures are free to download and view anywhere even without an internet connection.
  • Section summaries to help you review and re-learn lecture points easily and quickly.
You can view and review the lecture materials indefinitely, like an on-demand channel.
Definitely! If you have an internet connection, courses on Udemy are available on any device at any time. If you don't have an internet connection, some instructors also let their students download course lectures. That's up to the instructor though, so make sure you get on their good side!
