Im looking to become a freelance web dev , and I believe now im proficient enough in html/css and ready to move on to the next phase , im conflicted whether to start learning email development so i can atleast guarantee a career in this field while studying JS , coz i heard you just need to know html/css to become a email developer , or do you recommend that i go ahead with JS i forget about email development?
Don’t do email development. When you have learned programming then you can start own project. Freelance is just for some quick money.
Well thats what im looking for a quick income
Build your own dreams , or someone else will hire you to build theirs.
I mean, this is a tiny, tiny job market. This is basically a solved problem. There aren’t loads of email developer jobs. Generally the person needing an email just goes on (eg) MailChimp (or whatever their provider is) picks a template that looks nice, maybe adjusts the colours and adds some pictures and a logo. It doesn’t need a developer most of the time, it just needs someone to click through a GUI for five minutes. If it needs something more structured, a developer can do it, but it’s not exactly a complex task. It’s incredibly unlikely that you’ll get a job as an “email developer”.
