Hi there! I’m Jonathan Wold and I’ve been working in the web development industry for over 9 years. I’ve started (and still run) several web development businesses and I’ve been doing so full-time now for over 6 years. I love helping folks, just like you, start and grow a web development business of their own.
I wrote this free course with one specific goal: to help you get your first client.
I also offer a premium course to take you beyond that first client to building a full-time web development business, covering all the ins and outs I’ve learned over the years and helping you leverage what I’ve learned from my successes and my failures.
My reasoning is simple. If I can help you start a web development business and get your first client then there’s a good chance you’ll give me the privilege of helping you take your business further by investing in the premium course.
So Let’s Get Started!
Here’s what I have for you in this free course:
- An overview of the tools and resources you’ll need to begin.
- A step-by-step guide to building a WordPress-powered website for your new web development business – even if you’ve had no prior experience.
- 15+ specific strategies for getting your first web development client.
- The four steps to taking a potential client from an interest to a sale.
- A bonus list of the resources and tools I use to run and grow my freelance business.

Who Is This Course For?
I wrote this course with beginners in mind – folks with little to no prior experience in web development or even with technology. If you’re a beginner and you’re willing to learn, then this course is a perfect match for you. The course starts out slow and at each step I encourage you to reach out to me with any questions you have to help you keep moving along.
I also wrote this course for people with prior experience who are looking for a fresh start. Perhaps you’ve worked in the web development industry before and now you want to branch out on your own. With the beginner focus the course will start out slow for you, but give you opportunity to review and make sure that the basics are covered. Then, as we get into the new client strategies, you’ll find a lot to work with and I also highly encourage you to reach out and ask questions as you go along.
Why Four Weeks?
One of the best ways to stay motivated is to get results. At the same time, nearly everything worth doing takes time. Four weeks is a good balance – a short enough period of time to keep you motivated and enough time for you to actually get results.
The first week will be spent getting your website ready and then, starting in week two, you’ll take the strategies I’ll teach you and start getting the word out. In the week after, I’ll teach you the four steps for leading a potential client from an interest to the first payment.
