Freelance web developer
After completing the Web Application Development course, I decided to start my own business as a freelance computer programmer under the brand Multimedia Apps, a stage that lasted from September 2014 to February 2016, when I found a new job opportunity.
Most of my clients were in Tarragona, but I also carried out projects for companies in Barcelona or Valencia.
Corporate web design
I designed corporate websites for companies of all types and sectors, such as restaurants (with reservations management), event companies, etc.
Web application developing
Small web applications for different sectors, especially for restaurants carried out with PHP and MySql such as booking management or a search engine for an on-line guide.
I developed several online stores and made the start-up with the first products.
Some of those projects were made with Prestashop content manager, and another with WordPress using the WooCommerce plugin, configuring payment gateways, articles, and doing a set-up with an optimal result to sell.
Another aspect that I also highlighted was the optimization of web pages to be optimal for mobile devices, since I found a client who still had the web without optimizing.
Some clients ended up asking me for office training, web positioning, social media management or even graphic design.
Personalized courses in different subjects, for example WordPress, but I have also trained people in office automation (especially Excel) and preparation of the part of Office in oppositions.
Auditing and SEO
During this stage they also commissioned me to work on the SEO positioning of web pages, perform audits to improve the web and have better search results.
Online advertising campaigns
I have developed advertising campaigns both Google Ads and Facebook, with positive results.
Social network management
I have helped in the task of community management of some of my clients, especially when it comes to starting or doing specific promotions.
This is the part where I am most surprised because I ended up dealing with the design of posters, flyers, business cards or even logos of some clients with programs such as Photoshop, Illustrator or InDesign, since during my period as a freelance I was an Adobe Creative subscriber Cloud
In graphic design I feel comfortable, although it is not my main task.
In short, my stage in this professional project as a freelance computer programmer was quite fruitful, in all respects, especially when it came to sharing synergies with other professionals and corporations, for example I was also a member of CEPTA (Confederació Empresarial de Tarragona) and I participated in several events such as fairs and networking sessions.
