If you could avoid years of struggle and see real success right now, wouldn’t you want that?
If you knew the techniques other designers use to land $5,000, $10,000, and even $20,000+ deals,
wouldn’t your life change really fast?
Change doesn’t come to those who wait. It starts when you take action and force yourself to get results.
When I first started I didn’t have coding experience, no sales skills either. Also I was pretty much broke. Without recapping my whole life story, let’s just say...it was rough.
I basically begged for work on freelance sites just to get a start. My approach to “winning” projects? I was the freelancer who did the most work for the least pay. I’d work week-long projects for a couple hundred bucks - and clients still demanded more.
Several months went by and I was still making nothing. The more I tried the more businesses could see I desperately I needed the work. Clients would mess me around with pay, dozens of unneeded changes, and ridiculous demands. When you don’t know your worth there are a lot of people waiting to take advantage.
And it got worse. I ended up in a bad place. Less savings than when I started. No idea how to find proper clients. No ability to create real sales.
When I look back on those times, I realize I made a lot of amateur mistakes. Simple mistakes that held me back from my true potential and worth.
How did I go from struggling for months just to sell a $200 website to earning over $100,000 the next year? Easy (sort of) I just switched from being a code-focused designer to a student of digital sales.
I realized if I wanted to earn serious money, I had to make my clients even more. This is where most designers mess up. You see, high-profit clients don’t pay for websites, they pay for results (sales). Small clients, on the other hand, tend to focus on stuff that doesn’t matter. That’s why they’re small. And because they’re small, they have a little budget. Yet still they expect the world.
High-profit clients don’t care how long you work or how many pages you build. They don’t even care what the website looks like as long as it works. They just want you to build something that makes them more money. So when you’re the person who does that, you become the in-demand designer who can charge whatever you want. Make sense?
When push comes to shove, it boils down to your ability to sell. You can be the best coder in the world, but if you can’t sell yourself, and if your websites don’t make clients money, you won’t get very far. That’s why you don’t have to be the best designer. You don’t even have to be that good. You just have to be smart and learn how to sell. To sum it up, here’s what in-demand web designers do that everyone else doesn’t:
"The biggest contribution that joining the Fox Pro Sales Group has done for my website design business has been providing me with a team of experts to help with real-time challenges that may come up. These challenges include prospecting, sales calls, pricing and proposal email questions, general strategy questions for my business, website feedback for client drafts and most importantly - dealing with scope creep in projects and how to not get taken advantage of by difficult clients. After just starting my website design business around 10 months ago, with Rob's help and the community, I was able to lock in roughly $12,000 in revenue to my business from 2 high-value contracts in the span of a few weeks.

I wanted to learn how to sell my services and be able to charge the right amount without feeling like I have to compete with the budget peolpe out there. The group has really helped understand prospecting and sales, how to target the right people and how to position yourself in the right way to be able to ask for those higher numbers. The support and success stories from others is also very inspiring. If you are a web designer or developer or just starting out in the field and you want to start getting your own clients then this group is great!

Fox Pro Sales Members is a great community to talk about sales and business development for web design (and digital agency) businesses. It's just nice to talk to people in motion and who ask sensible questions or have interesting stories to tell. I would recommend the group to people who want to improve their sales and grow their web design business. It's super value for money if people participate, and you're super active and give very in depth responses.

My main reason for joining the group was to learn selling my services. The group has helped me in reaching out to customers and creating an effective sales process for my agency. Currently I am no longer afraid to cold call leads, and have been consistently generating more leads. If you join, the group will be very helpful towards generating sales that you need for your agency.

I have been a very introverted person and felt comfortable just doing coding and computer work. After joining the group, personally, the biggest result has been getting over my fear of talking to strangers over the phone. With an exact strategy in mind and the motivation the group has given me, I started to enjoy what I once feared. We did our first ever project about two months ago and have managed to build up a nice portfolio since then. Now we are trying to get our first big deal (3k+) and start to live off our new business.

99% of business communities (both online and offline) are more or less BS. The other 1% is gold. And this group is in the 1%. I've joined to learn solid sales skills, which most of the business people (not only freelancers/designers) don't have. I've improved in many areas, including my sales skills - asking right questions and processes; mindset - helping people, thinking about value, not about money; support - just knowing that I'm not alone in this.

I literally didn't know how to sell my services before joining. I've learned how to sell, that building a website is the easy part, but building a website that delivers is the important bit and adding value to someones business will make me stand out from the crowd. I've improved a lot when it comes to confidence when pitching. If you join, you'll receive life changing tips and advices and will be supported throughout the hard long way to successful web design business! You'll thank me later.
