Web Designers' Salary

Jun 6, 2008
Being a web designer is a good thing: the industry is growing, and the income is pretty good.

Growing E-Commerce

A lot of online businesses have set up. It's understandable because they don't need inventory, overhead is cheaper, and sometimes they don't even need to actually own the products to sell them.

When the customer places an order online, the retailer buys it from a good-relationed wholesaler. The wholesaler then ships the product so that the retailer makes a margin off the profit without exerting too much effort.

Places like Wal-Mart have items that are only available through the internet, which is why web designers are needed in the first place.

Web Design Salary Increases

Salary levels depend on experience, education, and location. Also, most companies prefer to keep web designers nearby instead of having them work in a remote location.
