    Hi Davin. Looking at your signature, I would believe that you're already offering your services for web design. You might also want to try and visit the many freelance websites and try your hand at freelancing.

    What do you mean by a project online? Are you looking for work online, freelance? If you mean you want a business online, the link in your sig in an online business, you just need to work more on it in order to improve it..

    I haven't been a freelancer myself but I guess the first step is to visit the many freelance sites. We have a list of these sites in our Useful Online Business Resources thread.

    I've visited some of these sites myself and saw that there were a lot of jobs there ranging from data entry jobs to web design. Most of the freelance sites require you to bid for the project.

    There are several areas in which one can work for themselves online, the various niches available to people online number in the thousands easily.

    For example, have you thought about designing sites and selling them, aka site flipping?

    davin.master, pendelton's suggestion for website flipping is this: you buy a domain name, build a website with content and then sell the whole package.

    By your signature I understand you already have your own website. Unfortunately it seems to be off line, at least I couldn't access any of them.

    If you already have a website, here are some ideas:

    1. Offer a free website template in exchange for your visitors email address; you will build a list of potential customers this way.
    2. Offer your services through internet marketing/webmasters forums like DP and others.
    3. Register at various outsourcing sites like elance.com, guru.com, etc.
    4. Post ads on free online classified ad sites and also on local classified ads.
    5. Exchange links with related websites.
    6. Write a few articles about web design and publish them on ezinearticles.com with a link to your website.
    7. If you don't have it yet, launch a blog and post articles about the theme.
    8. Build a hub at HubPages or a lens at Squidoo with links to your blog or website.

    I think this will help you get customers.

    To be very specific, go to - http://elance.com - I believe this place fits for your skills. Glad to know you work under IT company. Also, try googling about "freelancer", you'll know about.

    If you've your own website, try to advertise it. Provide Quality web design for cheap and reliable price. Try through blogging, forum, signatures, social-networking and even websites.

    davin, can you please tell us a little more about the type of project you would like to get online - are you considering earning money from selling ad space, affiliate products or offering a service?

    I can tell you what to do because I'm a freelancer and I have done many projects.
    go to www.getafreelancer.com
    then open a free account. In your account profile, you can determine the areas that you want to work with. After that, go to browse projects, choose the projects that you want to work with. Open them and start reading. When you like a project and you want to work with it, you need to bid for it ( put the price that you want to get paid) some projects pay after the end of the project and others pay for hour, etc.
    Then click on bid on this project, add the price you want, how many days until you finish the project and write a small message to make the employer choose you. Mostly, the lower the price you bid the more you will be chosen.
    You may be contacted by the employer to know more information before he choose his employee. When you are chosen , do your job and get paid
    That's it but if you need any more details please don't hesitate to ask me because it took me a long time to get it all right because I did it all alone and there was no one to help me.
