How to use Carrd.co and Components UI as a Freelancer

If you do web design for clients or build websites as a freelancer, you might have come across Carrd.co as a simple solution. Carrd let's you design, build and host a one-page-websites that you can then sell to your clients as a service or end product. Depending on your projects you might find Components UI + Carrd to be a great combination to save time and make money for your business.

Components UI is a collection of pre-built components and templates designed for Carrd.co.  It includes components like complex pricing tables, badges, stats sections and more. The components are already built for you so you'll receive the gallery in your Carrd account once you purchase.

If you work as a freelancer doing website design you just have to get your client's requirements and use Components UI to build custom websites for their projects with their own brand colors and images.

Components UI will work as a master template of components that you can reuse with different clients with different goals and needs.

When you decide to use Components UI and Carrd.co for your freelancer projects, you might use a process like this:

  1. Get your client's requirements for the website
  2. Duplicate the Components UI gallery on your Carrd account
  3. Use Components UI to build your clients website / landing page
  4. Host your client's project on your Carrd account. You can charge them a monthly fee for doing that.
  5. Or you can export the assets and send the clients the HTML & CSS files: Carrd let's your export all assets from the website project so they can host it themselves
  6. Rinse and repeat

Of course you can just use Carrd and start your clients' website from scratch. The beauty of Components UI is that it allows you to save a lot of time — and in turn money — so you can get more projects done in less time. When working as a freelancer you want to have as many clients as you can and deliver their project in as little time as possible. Components UI helps you to do just that.

Components UI and it's family of products is not to be thought as an expense.  It's meant to be an investment. It can help you save time and make money. It can pay for itself many times over when you use it to sell your products or services to clients.

Spending time and money on new tools for your business can be scary specially when there are free tools available. It seems counterintuitive but sometimes "free" doesn't really mean free, it just means you are paying with "life". All these is to say that you are paying with your time instead with your money.

Paying for tools lets you leverage your product. If you run a construction company you'll be able to build more houses if you have the proper equipment (tools, machines, cranes) instead of you working alone with your own hands. That's the power of leverage. That same principle can be applied to digital products. Use the tools that can help you grow your business.
