With the world moving more online, every business needs an online presence. It’s an online business card. In fact, 87% of shoppers now begin product searches online, so if a business isn’t online they are missing out on a lot of potential customers. Although it’s important for every business to have a website, it’s equally important that it has a good representation of their brand. We are approaching 2021 and nobody wants to visit a website that looks like this: 

90s website interface    

Building a beautifully designed website is easier than it was back in the ’90s. There are a plethora of drag and drop website builders for WordPress websites like Elementor, Divi, WP Bakery to only name a few. There are also services like Wix and Squarespace, that handle everything from hosting, getting a domain, designing your website, and optimizing it for SEO

Even with all these tools available, there are still businesses out there with websites that could use some TLC. There are a lot of business owners on Acadium that have great companies, but they just don’t have the time to invest in enhancing their websites. If you’re looking for an opportunity to add a project to your portfolio, learn more about web design, or kick-start your freelance business, these entrepreneurs are a great place to start. 

Below are five businesses on Acadium right now looking for apprentices who will help them with their website redesign projects.
