Web Design is a life-changing skill
Back in 2009 when i decided to learn web design, it was a decision i made right after National Service. Back then. WordPress wasn’t very popular, and we would use Softwares like Macromedia Dreamweaver to build websites. It was a painstakingly slow process. You had to build every single page manually and link them manually and you had to learn a lot about HTML and CSS.
Today, open-source software such as WordPress has taken a whole lot of stress out of the web design process. When i discovered WordPress, I could not believe how easy it was to build websites with it. What used to take me three weeks was now taking 3 days. Yes! 3 days. No jokes.
HTML and CSS are still very relevant today and it would help you if you know them, but I can tell you for free that you can build a beautiful website with WordPress without writing a single line of code!
As a digital marketing professional, my knowledge of web design has always given me an advantage because I can design user friendly and websites that make sure our advertising objectives are being met and if you desire to be a digital marketer, or you own your own business, knowing how to manage your website is now a necessity.
