Those who are proficient at web design can make a pretty good living for themselves by designing websites for businesses.

Web design clients believe that the more ostentatious their web pages are, the more business they will attract. They want the designer to create the equivalent of loud, flashing neon signs, which they believe will drawn customers to their businesses in droves.
