About the Author
Rob Cubbon has been successfully running a web design business since 2006 in London, UK. Rob's from England and lives in London. He has been working in the graphic and creative fields for longer than he cares to remember. And, doing that just for the money, just to get by and pay the mortgage. So life was fairly uninteresting until 2006 when he started a blog. Then he started his own company, the imaginatively titled Rob Cubbon Ltd, to provide design and marketing services to promote products, businesses and people on the internet and beyond. Rob is committed to showing you the positive side of entrepreneurship. For Rob, running his own business has been a liberating and amazing experience. But it can be, at times, lonely and exasperating. Rob runs meet up groups in London for entrepreneurs and blogs regularly on business, design and marketing.

Whenever you see the name, Rob Cubbons, you can rest assured that you will be gaining high quality, expert guidance and honest caring.
Though it’s rather short, it covers a slew of details, from free tools for getting work done (FireBug, Grid Systems and Font Tools) to Outsourcing, SEO and how to sell your websites and tactics on pushing your other services (yes, we all have "extras").
At first, I was a bit skeptical seeing as I have several years of experience under my belt, but I wanted to see if I could grab anything useful from this read. To be honest, I didn't have any "Ah ha" moments, rather, I enjoyed reading on how the author's workflow went.
If you’re a seasoned vet, then this will definitely NOT be the best source for you (if any), it covers a lot that you've already learned through experience and reading through blog after blog. But if you’re just starting out, I can’t recommend this book enough.
Update: Quite a few months later, I'm closer to being ready to open a little Web shop. Upon revisiting this book and also Rob's "Create The Website You Want With WordPress" I am reminded it's a complete Go To book for all the details of running your Web design business. Rob has written out the best working and customer procedures, warns not to work cheap and offers many other insightful tips. Rob has packed his books with what you need to do what he has done. Which he has indeed done, so I think it's nuts not to by this book if you want to open a Web design shop.
**“Is what I’m doing right now getting me where I want to go?”
**People will contact you wanting a website but 9 times out of 10 they won’t have thought about SEO, social media, a blog and sometimes even content. You need to offer as many of these services as possible.
** How to make your plans as SMART as possible – that is specific, measureable, achievable, realistic and timely.
**Why free don't work-“this won’t take you long”, “if you do this for free there’s a guarantee of future work” or “can you write a proposal on how to improve these 4 websites”.
**Even though, as I say, not all clients are created equally, I always treat everyone with the same respect and politeness. This is because, I believe, I am a brand. Everything I do reflects on my reputation and my business.
**Never use words like “difficult”, “delay”, “complicated”.
If we want to run a web business and creating some best passive income, must read this book.. It's a Jam.
