So one thing is for sure: As a Dubai based web design agency seeking new clients, it is essential to get your hands on new set of skills alongside a major strategy update to help incorporate those skills. Another noticeable factor when it comes to choosing skills to learn and strategies to cook is to opt for ones that are applicable for clientele work and have a universal appeal about them.
Take a look at these four attributes you can adopt today in order to broaden your skillset and be of more viable use to the client.
There is so much that you can learn from taking photos on your own. This includes learning about lighting, the right camera angles and other related photography sensitivities that can augment your design skills immensely. Also, your own photography will allow you to use creative pictures for client work without any permissions that can in turn speed up the design process. An extension of the same is video editing that is gaining popularity like anything today. It is because it has been decided quite a long time ago that people find videos more enjoyable. Clients today also expect you to leverage the medium of video as a service provider for better communication possibilities with their customers.

Mobile apps and responsive web designs are taken up as major league projects by any professional web designing company today. Thanks to the customers who are using more and more mobile devices as they access websites, communicate, make purchases or better organize their lives.

Sometimes we see our competition taking lead right under your nose. Most of the times their secret ingredient is that they keep their clients closer as they discover a niche that actually works for them. So get specific and plan everything adhering to your clients’ needs. Once you have gathered a pool of clients, instead of continuously growing that pool, why not focus on the ones at hand and get that supply of work coming from them for years? Think about it, you may already have that pool. If not, then you may want to think about branching out and be where your clients are.
No matter how good you are at designing, if you do not know how to sell yourself then your business will surely suffer. You see, all businesses today make a living out of their crazy marketing efforts because the world will know that you make great designs only when they are unveiled to the world. Apart from showing your expertise, you are also sending a message to the potential clients to hire you – such is the power of marketing. Sell experience, not qualifications.
Learning new skills and incorporating new strategy shouldn’t be a scary process. Just remember to put majority of effort right at the beginning and the rest will come to you as you go towards establishing yourself as a person as well as a company. Good luck!
