To simplify your journey towards becoming a WordPress developer, you’ll want to approach it methodically. This involves narrowing down your focus, identifying your skills, finding a niche, and learning as much as you can about the platform beforehand.
A WordPress developer is a professional who works with the basic coding and infrastructure of the WordPress platform, to improve WordPress itself, or to create entirely new products.
Starting a career
Before you even think about marketing yourself as a web designer or think you can make money building websites, you have to actually get out there and build one yourself.
We know, it sounds pretty obvious, but plenty of people these days love to talk big games on things like entrepreneurship, digital marketing, etc. when they literally have nothing to show for it.Try building a simple website about anything, whether it be your own personal blog or a fan site about your favorite show.

Get Your Logistics in Order
You’ll want to create a proposal that includes your scope of work, pricing, and how long it will take you to complete their website.
There are tons of proposal templates available on the internet, so just find one you like and add all the necessary information.
It’s also recommended you either show them your portfolio or a mockup of what you have in mind for their new website.
Tips When Meeting With Prospects
a. When meeting with your prospect, have your proposal printed off and ready for them to sign.
b. Make sure the proposal not only looks good aesthetically but is easy to understand.
c. Try to limit your proposal to only a few pages (maximum of 5 in my opinion).
d. Be as descriptive as possible, but at the same time try to only include the necessary information (explain the importance of responsive design but don’t rattle on about a specific WordPress theme you like).
e. Look your prospect in the eyes, and make sure you act very engaged and interested in their business.Sit up straight and speak confidently.
