There are a number of options but we will focus on the main 5 points which are a must for any website designer.
1. Mastering any Page builder:

You must focus using any on any one of it and start mastering it. As using too many page builders together may consume too much time and can end up in frustration.
2. Bringing Traffic to Website:
This is the most important part of web designing. Once you have created a website now its time to attract people to your business.
Designing and putting up your website is not enough you have to let others know about your service. Your products and the timings in which you are available to serve them.
Letting people know the 4 W’s & 1H’s:
