For ambitious creatives who are ready for a change…
Break free from the daily grind,
and break into freelance web design.
Some of you might be thinking…
Yessss! I know web design is a great industry for freelance and recurring revenue – I just don’t know where to start! I want more freedom and control over my life and a profitable freelance career would be my dream come true!
Others of you might be saying…
Say whaaa?! I don’t know the first thing about code or design… wouldn’t I need to go back to school for that? I mean… sure, I’d love to be my own boss and spend more time with my family, but web design seems like a pipe dream.
The Good News
You don’t have to go back to school, or even know how to code to be a successful freelance web designer!
The Bad News
There are a million and one ways to learn web design and business-building. And most of them are garbage.
Think you can DIY a freelance web design career? Maybe. But after wasting hundreds of hours hunting down YouTube “gurus”, researching a bunch of unnecessary tools and platforms, and skipping that whole ‘business plan’ thing… you’ll likely throw in the towel long before you ever turn a profit. And never realize your dream of working with who you want, on what you want, from where you want, whenever you want.
Unfortunately, you probably won’t get far on your own.
But what if…
…there was a better way? A proven path to get to the freedom lifestyle of your dreams so you can spend more time doing the things you love with the people you love. A way to shave YEARS off the process of creating a successful freelance web design business, and get to your dream in a faster and better way than you could on your own.
A path designed by successful freelancers who already made all the mistakes and outlined the most effective methods for designing websites and building a business…

"I Broke into web." - Jake
"I used to wake up at 4:45 AM and commute an hour (each way) to a desk job I hated. Now, I am working as a web designer full-time. It still feels surreal this is my new life. Because of Break Into Web, I now have an amazing career. My lifestyle has greatly improved. I really love my life! If you're thinking about joining Break Into Web, DO IT! You won't regret it." 😁
"I'm usually skeptical about online courses. They seem to promise the world and deliver nothing. Break Into Web is anything but that! John and Kelly are absolutely incredible instructors who ACTUALLY run successful businesses. You really can't go wrong with BIW it's a great investment!"
"Break Into Web has put together all the information and support you need to start your freelance career in web design. It's really incredible how comprehensive it is! You will feel completely prepared to build websites for yourself and clients after finishing the course. Love John and Kelly, too. They are funny, supportive and genuine. 100% recommend!" 💯
"This course ultimately allowed me to get the lifestyle I deeply wanted. I took the course while working a fulltime job. Break Into Web gave me the skills I needed to eventually quit that job, work as a web designer, and make my own schedule. I now have the flexibility and freedom I wanted in my life. I have Break Into Web to thank for that."
"Such a fantastic course! I can’t say enough good things about Kelly & John. The courses includes anything you could ever want to know about creating websites from start to finish ... and they are continually adding to it. This course (and Kelly and John!) helped me quit my 8-5 corporate job and go fulltime freelance!"
"My experience with Break into Web has been very positive so far. John & Kelly are very supportive and helpful. The program is well organized, and covers both the technical and business side of things. Highly recommended for people looking to reinvent themselves as freelance web designers."
"As an agency owner, Break Into Web has been an excellent and invaluable resource for our interns and employees to work through. While there are tons of courses out there, this is the only one we've found that effectively explains the web design/development process to give them the necessary tools and steps they need to step into a successful career as a web designer and/or developer. "
"There is A LOT of info out on the web when it comes to web design and this course does a great job of putting everything you need in one place. The Facebook group and access to John and Kelly for questions is worth the price of admission in and of itself. Both are great teachers and very responsive to questions. The course is solid and they continue to add new content. Highly recommend!"

Got questions? We've got answers...
How long do I have access to the course?
How long will it take to complete the course?
Most of our students take 6-12 weeks to complete the course.
We provide our students with a recommended schedule to keep you moving forward. For those working a full-time job (or your "bridge" job as we call it), we recommend you spend 1 hour a day Monday-Friday for a total of 5 hours per week.
As you watch the Technical Course videos you'll build your own site. These videos will take longer as you may need to pause often and you may have to watch some videos multiple times to master the material.
What will I need to start the course?
Besides a desire and hunger to learn...
You'll need a reliable laptop or desktop computer.
Once you enter the Technical Course, there will be some items any website business owner will need. We'll go over all of these items in the Technical Course and when/where to purchase them.
Do I get access to the entire course right away?
Yes! You get full access to all courses (Business, Technical, and Advanced Courses) right away. This is not a "drip" course.
What if I'm not a designer?
We got you covered. We cover the basics of how to make a great looking website in the course. By the end of the course, you'll be able to build sites that look like they're professionally designed.
What if I don't know how to code?
You do not need to know how to code, or learn how to code, to complete our course. The tools and methods we use require very little code.
By the end of the course, you'll know what little code you need to know to build your web design business.
Will I have access to Kelly & John?
Yes! During the course, you will be able to join a monthly live Zoom call with Kelly & John. We’ll answer any questions you may have over the course material, give our advice on your business questions, as well as give encouragement & motivation for you to keep pushing through the course and grow your business. Being able to directly access the instructors personally sets this course aside from most online courses. We want you to get the most value possible from this course.
Kelly & John are also very active in the private Facebook group. They post helpful information and answer questions.
How often are videos updated?
The Technical Course Videos are updated as major changes occur with the Divi Theme. Additional videos will be added from time to time featuring recent updates and additions made to the Divi Theme. We use Divi to power our own 6-figure web design businesses. We stay up on the latest updates with Divi and will include those updates as needed to the course.
Parts of the Business Course are updated each quarter with fresh material based on industry trends and evolution.
How much does the course cost?
Why does the course cost this much?
We realize the course is a sizable investment in yourself. This is on purpose. We want the price to both motivate and cause the student to take this course seriously.
This is a new career you'll be launching into. We want you to succeed! However, you'll need to put in what you want out of this course. Simply taking the course does not guarantee success.
That being said, we're confident any student who follows our course and business plan consistently, will have a successful freelance website business. You'll look back on this decision as the turning point!
The average price of websites being sold by students after taking the course is $2,000-$4,000. A few have sold $5,000 websites. We even have a $10,000 website that was sold. Most students recoup the cost of the course on their first sold website.
Additionally, the course is packed with value well worth beyond the price. We've spent years building the course, the videos, worksheets, and resources. Keep in mind we also have our Monthly Live Q&A sessions included in your price.
Do you offer refunds?
Yes, we offer a 7-day money back guarantee. If you purchase the course and it does not meet your expectations, you have 7 days to let us know and we'll give you a 100% refund.
