    I am looking for advice into how I can up skill to be able to work as a self employed freelancer in order to provide the below services:

    *Create websites for small businesses.
    * Provide SEO

    I have a degree in Business Information Systems and I currently work as a technical analyst but I do not know HTML to build websites from scratch so I would like to know where I can learn this online to equip myself to be self employed and know everything to create a website for a company.

    I also need to know where I can learn SEO, but where I can do this is a minefield.

    If you think I would benefit from other courses to equip myself please let me know!!

    Online courses are preferred please.

    Many thanks!

    Hi Lisa,

    Its great to know that you are planning to provide services as a freelancer. There are many online courses available where you can learn the basics of web designing and SEO. Whereas there are many website theme builders also available in the market, that you'll not have to learn the codes and just basics will be enough. Example, there is an offline software TemplateToaster which helps to build high quality websites from scratch without writing a single code. You'll just drag and drop the elements and images and after few clicks the website will be complete. Plus, there are options to select the CMS from Magento, Wordpress, Jomomla and many more.

    Being a freelancer myself, I use this software not because I don't like coding but to save a lot of my time. I think you can download it for free and try as many times as you want. So start building websites on your own while you get good exposure of SEO only with experience. All the best in your new journey!

    Warmly, Mike.
