Where to find customers the website designer, if you can work in photoshop and layout do not own?
Specializers to sell web design landing page (experience 3 years). English is weak, not sufficient for work on the foreign stock exchanges of freelancing. And customers now are mostly looking for specialists 2 in 1 and designer, and coder in one person. I have a vicious circle: no money for training, because on one design only enough to make ends meet. But surely somewhere you have customers who need it the site designers, not coders? I don't manage to get on such.

https://moikrug.ru/vacancies/1000026127 - I think it's not the only customers. Seek and ye shall find!
Although I would still teach something else, too narrow, here is my comrade was sitting in the office in a good RFP, also drew the designs, though still cut, but the specificity of the sites was unidirectional, a very narrow range of tasks, but for development itself nifiga did, because spilled slightly, and the firm was... Now the office is covered with a copper dish, with a portfolio as Gypsy artists, no firm is not particularly breaking it, although he is very good in its niche. Conclusion - do not forget that the market at any time takes place to you ... back, so learn, learn and learn again, as bequeathed to hoteismarylanza.

PS: Look all the same in the mobile segment, now there is more money, such as toys, interfaces, if you have artistic ability and draw characters for games, that's cool. And the money and the creative development IMHO.
Such customers are looking for free ideas, suiting unpaid competitions are a dime a dozen! - Lue.Rat commented on July 9th 19 at 13:28
: well, these kind of work not just ordering, plus what can you lose? A bit of my time and calories? Even if you do not take - in the portfolio of the odd string. I understand that it is unpleasant to be "paytanim free", but looking from the point of view of the customer - the easier and more correct to hire a person which is really nice doing something than stupid one-off to steal someone's design and then to be pour some on the forums and boards, not employing a normal designer. You really came across cases when your design is used to me using such competitions/saidnike? - lily.Kozey commented on July 9th 19 at 13:31
so I'm not against learning, but I have on this training is really no dough. I mentioned this in the thread, what a vicious circle. And my brain is not technical warehouse, already tried I coding and programming - it is not me! And concerning "You really are the cases when your design is used to me using such competitions/saidnike? "- so yeah, a lot of times threw and not only through the contests! - Lue.Rat commented on July 9th 19 at 13:34

1. Do not complain about the lack of money. In today's world have the desire.
Everything you need - Internet access, and judging by the fact that You wrote the message here - that You have everything in order. Training courses, certificates, diplomas - not important (especially as a freelancer). You will have to choose a portfolio. If barely ends meet and mix - it is an occasion to think about whether You're doing it.
Already wrote above, but most (all) experts started with self-study. Again, the main desire. If the head - confidence that you must pay for certificates, and courses - is the brain playing a cruel joke with You, coming up with excuses to never start doing it.

2. Read books on user interaction with the interface. You can start with the theoretical foundations of Ruskin's, and posts about it were already a bunch.

3. Towards Photoshop. He throws in 5-8 years ago, and services such as webflow make Your efforts close to meaninglessness.
A pimply high-schooler, working in Sketch (Mac), Adobe xD (Mac Preview/Win - soon), Axure, etc. - has the advantage of (I don't even take into account the inquisitiveness of the children's/JUNOSHESKOGO mind compared to the "inertia" of the older generations (30 and above).

4. (With caution!) Hangs on websites dedicated to the subject. Dribbble, awwwards, behance. With caution because they need to get inspiration and understanding of what modern web, and not stereotyped, and the inertia of thinking.

Orders just on the design is FULL of sites and landing pages in particular. The competition is, but with a good portfolio and the ability to present yourself as an expert, the competition is much smaller.

First write a General advice based on personal experience.
  1. Good spec in a particular direction is better than the "handyman", believe me. Niche selection is very important. Alas, the design of sites (especially landing pages!) it's too popular specialization and to stop being a faceless freelancer you need to very seriously work on the quality of work and portfolio. Very good to find a competent firm or an art Director, who will be able to pull up their level over time. Here it is necessary to search and not to stop expanding the search. Who searches - that will find, believe me.
  2. Monitor exchange manually or use special services-aggregators for this (has been discussed here, use search).
  3. Discover a coder, a programmer, a specialist for the interfaces, icons and those who lacked until now to take orders for the key. Maybe it's even ever going to result in your firm. The Internet, social networks and word of mouth to help.
  4. Promote yourself in your profile freelance exchanges, social networking (profile group and friends, ask for a repost) and websites for designers (drible, beans, etc.) - there are periodically and customers and those who look for the designer to help.
  5. Be a good specialist, do not let yourself to fill out profiles on sites not serious and as a beginner, many good customers it would alienate. Do not put in the portfolio, all in a row (a common mistake for a designer), publish only what is really good.
  6. Well, just don't do shit. Customers very often ask for weird or obviously bad things to do in design. You are a specialist and (if the problem is not "just make money" and to help the client and provide the result for who are not ashamed) is entitled to tell the client how to solve his task. Many clients work with me because they like my approach.
And now private, for your specific specialization. Given your choice of target pages (landing pages) — I'm not surprised)) as far As I know, the sites you need quickly and turnkey, this is indeed the case when the client easier for a fixed amount to do everything. Here you can procure money and/or time to study allied health technologies, or to begin to develop a different niche, or find a designer/company to help. And best of all this is parallel to do.
Sit in the office to a salary (albeit not highest) with the opportunity to gain experience and freelancing in my spare time. When you pull up to a higher level, it will be possible to leave in free swimming.

PS I Hope I have not written in vain and response will not go unnoticed among the other "narrow" answers that you don't comment)))
PPS If you show your portfolio, it is possible (not promising anything) I can do something to help =) by advice or deed.

Doubtful. If the designer is able to impose, then that's a plus, but not required.

I have training really no dough

The main thing is to have the desire and time. Network bunch of free material.

In General I recommend not to focus on the design of the landing page. Read about interfaces, usability. Try to draw arts. The light is not converged wedge on these landing pages.
All clear! I then not a soul can not understand :( - Lue.Rat commented on July 9th 19 at 13:34

there is no money to increase the skill level

What are you going to raise qualification?
There are also self-study. Need interest and time. Courses, seminars, workshops is first and foremost a business. Ultimately, your teacher or your teacher's teacher studied it all yourself and not pay money for it. Most programmers studying independently.

Where to find customers to design websites

On freelance, my son. Where else?
so work, but this is what I called - to make ends meet - there surpasses the competition, not a lot of money - Lue.Rat commented on July 9th 19 at 13:38
: ahh, okay. You wanted to be able to earn money without competition? Well, this is possible only if you have something different from other professionally: either you have a lot of experience or talent. At this point you have most likely either one or the other. - lily.Kozey commented on July 9th 19 at 13:41
July 9th 19 at 13:37
There are several options:
1. Exchange
2. Cooperation - to look for people who have a lot of orders, but not enough specialists
3. Work in the company - stable income, experience, portfolio or just to hang out until conditions improve for future freelancing

you also need to promote yourself wherever possible - forums, communities, blogs, and more. To participate in the discussion, to write your articles and showcase your portfolio. And Yes, not just landings, could be a bit versatile (in terms of design) to learn 3D or to design mob. applications, etc.
July 9th 19 at 13:39
play through all the courses, then see how landing pages are typeset
then a book on js to read and you can impose to customers
Do not think that if you spec and you are good at it, and all the other people on the planet this should also work. Codes, variables, loops... it's not mine! For me it's all very difficult, and even simply not interested. I'm not a techie! Because the question how it is possible to earn more in this field, without going into the technical/programming sphere "nerd"? To design a greater number of customers. But where these are found, who do not need the software side of the design? If I'm so "lucky", whether on the exchanges of freelancing there really is very little... - Lue.Rat commented on July 9th 19 at 13:42

And what's the problem.
Find coder/pretender of partners (ideally also provera to find), and can offer customers manufacturing sites "turnkey".
If that - write odinokun@gmail.com
July 9th 19 at 13:43
I can't comment on that! you can't hear me say focused! that's what the techies!
Reread all the posts in them lies the solution to Your problem.
If You need the short answer to the question "Where to find clients to design websites, if you work only in Photoshop?" - the answer: "Nowhere."
May he hard, but reflects reality. The issue has lost its relevance. - Lue.Rat commented on July 9th 19 at 13:46
Lie down in a corner and cry then.
1. What is the problem to learn English yourself free of charge on the Internet that would expand the customer? - Still tell that you are a linguist and you are not given. Laughter!
2. What is the problem to be improved in his work? More sketches, draw, see the work of others in the Internet, read helpful articles. Why do you want to have just a landing page. Become normal graph designer, if the technical side of the web is not interesting and challenging. What's the problem?
3. Revise their Outlook on life. Tell the father that he would get the belt and gave a knock that whiny crap out of the head. - lily.Kozey commented on July 9th 19 at 13:49
You also said that customers have. You just don't want them to look. - Lue.Rat commented on July 9th 19 at 13:52
