Freelancing for Developers

Learn How to Monetize your Developer Skills as a Freelancer in 2018 (even without coding)


So, you now know how to build websites but you still don't know how to make money from that or how to monetize those skills you just learned. Don't worry because in this course you will learn everything you need to know to start making money by building websites or apps for other people and how you can turn that into a really profitable business.

In this course, you will learn step by step how to start your freelancer career, expand it as a business and make it as profitable as possible. I decided to create this course along with my team because I was tired of seeing all those other courses that waste a lot of time basically talking about things that we don’t need as freelancers. In this course we don’t waste your time, we simply go straight to the point and teach you the fastest way to make money as a freelancer with proven selling strategies that are currently making thousands of dollars for other freelancers.

We worked really hard to put this course together. It took a huge number of hours spent on the web checking out the best strategies, resources, tools and other top freelancing tactics, and now everything is here for you in one unique amazing course!

What makes this course different from other freelancer courses?

Our goal is to have a 100% success rate of the students who take this course. In order to achieve this, we took our time to learn what was missing in other courses, what students really want to help them and motivate them to finish the course, and ultimately what they need to succeed with what they've learned.

We've learned that fast support and mentoring throughout the course, were probably the most demanded features by students. So, one of the things we will implement for the first time in any of our courses is a live chat support system, a direct email support directly with the instructor and the coolest feature, a weekly live webinnar also with the instructor in order to review what you've learned over the current week in progress and answer any questions from students.

What will I learn in this course?

  • Know the best way to promote yourself
  • How to get and keep the best clients
  • Where and how to get the best deals
  • What websites to use and what to avoid (Upwork, Odesk, etc...)
  • What are the best tools to use in 2018
  • Where to get the best resources for 2018
  • How to get the most of your clients
  • Know the top apps that will make your job easier
  • Know the best and fastest way to expand your business
  • Make really fast projects that make money
  • Avoid the typical headaches when dealing with clients

Do I need any previous knowledge in order to take this course?

No. You don't need any previous knowledge, just be familiar with the Internet. You might want to learn some basics of HTML/CSS since this course is free on our school and will help you understand how websites are created from scratch. Anyway, this is not mandatory, as we'll also teach you how to create websites without coding in this course.

Want to learn more? Take the complete HTML/CSS course.

Victor Bastos

I always loved computers and technology in general. In 2011 I was lucky enough to be invited to Udemy as an instructor after they saw my youtube coding video tutorials. From my video tutorials I've put together an awesome course on Udemy covering web development from top to bottom called "Become a Web Developer from Scratch" which still stands as one of Udemy top-sellers of all time.

In 2013 and 2014 I was basically a sensation all over the internet and became one of the most successful instructors online. My story has been covered on the Wall Street Journal, MIT Journal, Slate and the Sydney Morning Herald.

I'm now focused on creating more top-notch courses on Udemy and creating the best community for aspiring developers. You can also check my latest project called Onclick Academy, an online coding school where users will be able to learn, share and develop web apps with other developers. I'm also the CEO of Web Labs, a startup company who's mission is to provide digital content for e-learning platforms all over the world.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long do I have access to the course?
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.
I don't know how to code, can I take this course?
No problem. Most of the course leans towards people who design or create websites, but even if you don't know how to code we will show you during the course how to create websites without creating a single line of code.
When does this course start and finish?
The course will start on the 17th of April and will finish after we complete the 10 week program. This way we will make sure all of you complete the course successfully and get your first clients as a freelancer. We want you to succeed!
What if I miss a week, is that a problem?
No. You will still be able to check all videos at your own pace, and if you missed the weekly webinar you will be able to access it since we will record all of them ;)
If I purchase a lower package, can I upgrade to a higher one later?
Definitely! If you join the course at a lower level (Basic or Premium Package) and want to upgrade to a higher level, you can do so within 30 days of joining. Simply email me at — and I will upgrade you for a pro-rated amount.
Will I be able to buy this course anytime?
No. This course has limited spots and will close doors on the 13th of April 2017. After that it will be impossible to purchase the course until we release it again by the end of the year.
Will this course be offered on another platform or marketplace?
No. This course won't be offered anywhere else. You won't see this course on Udemy, you won't see it on YouTube, or anywhere else. The only way of enrolling in this course is by doing so during the limited time enrollment period. I'm doing this to protect my students, the integrity of the course, and to ensure that the only students who take this course are serious about success as a freelancer.
How much time do I need to dedicate to this course?
Every week, you'll be given access to a new module in the course. I recommend you dedicate at least 3 - 5 hours to the module. This includes watching the course content, filling out worksheets, and most importantly, applying what you've learned in your actual freelance business — that means, getting yourself out there, sending the emails, calling your leads, and hustling. However, if you're so busy that you can only dedicate a minimal amount of time to the course, that's okay. You'll have lifetime access to the course, and even if you can't spend time each week on the newly released module, you'll be able to come back to it when you have time. It's up to you, really :)
Will the course be offered for a lower price?
With the exception of some very small, time-sensitive promotions during live webinars or the like, the price that you see today is the lowest price the course will ever be offered for. You won't be seeing any "deep discounts", or undercutting prices on other sites or marketplaces. Many comparable courses out there are significantly higher in price. If you think this price is high, consider that even one paid freelancing gig can pay for the entire value of this course, if not more. I'm pulling out all the stops and doing everything I can to make this the most valuable product I've ever created, so you can rest assured there's going to be value!
Do I get instant access to every module at once?
I want you to see real, tangible, measurable results from this course. It's been proven that when somebody has access to everything all at once, and can consume learning material at a "choose your own adventure" pace, they lose attention, they skip important material, and they ultimately see no real results from the material. On the flip side, when a student is a part of a larger group of cohorts, and everybody is learning the same material at the same pace, they are held accountable and are much more likely to succeed. This course is designed to help you succeed, and see results! By releasing each module over the course of a few weeks, at the same time as your cohorts, you will have a better grasp on the information, the concepts and the strategies laid out in the course.
What if I am unhappy with the course?
After you completed the course, and you're unhappy because you still don't make money as a freelancer, simply let us know and we’ll return 100% of your investment. No questions asked. More importantly, if you bought the Master Package I’ll guarantee that you will get your first paying client within 10 days after completing the course, or you’ll get your entire investment back!
Is there anything else I should know about this course?
My team and I (Victor Bastos) worked hard for several months in order to deliver this course. I can say it's probably one of the most difficult projects I've put together in the last few years. This is not just a course, it's a growing community where we can share our stories and help each other.
