    Some questions:

    1. Is it easy to work for a company's site and if yes what kind of work do you usually do?
    SEMrush
    2. Since there are a lot of customizing softwares like elementor and visual composer, what kind of services can a web designer sell as a freelancer that make him better than the other choices?

    3. Do you have to constantly practise and learn modern technologies in order to compete and find work?

    4. Is it good idea to learn web design and have it in your arsenal as a backup profession in case your main business fails? or is it a waste of time if you don't plan to constantly practise it?

    Web design is a competitive market. Especially with automation tools available for anyone to design a website... Anyone with little skills can put a site together. But, there is plenty of opportunities for web designers who are creative in their marketing. Local and offline clients are easier to get if you approach them and they like and trust you. Bottom line, be creative in how you market your web design business and you'll get business. You also have to have an interest in design so that it's fun for you to learn new developments in the web design industry. Hope this helped.

    If you want to be a successful programmer, you need to learn constantly.
    You constantly need to upgrade your knowledge.

    Web design is a very creative job, but you need to know what you are doing.
    It is not all about design, it also needs to function.
    Someone who buys the website that you have developed needs to know how to use it.
    An average person doesn't know much about coding, so you are there to make their life easier.

    Goog luck!
