What types of jobs are available to those who only know HTML / CSS and JavaScript?

I have worked as a freelancer for the last 15 years, mainly in Web Design, HTML and CSS. And I've been making quite a bit of money doing it (more than 6 figures).

To get there, I had to learn to use other advanced tools like Expression Engine, which is based on a php framework. I don't do PHP. I just follow the documentation and use quality modules. I don't code any JS. I use plugins and modify them according to my needs by following the instructions.

Learning these frames helped me raise my prices more than 100%. From creating static web pages to dynamic web sites ... and reaching much larger cli

If you need a real back-end programmer, hire one for part of the project. Don't try to do it all yourself. You will lose time and money. And the job could be badly done.

Get good at a specific area (like Front End Design, if that's what you really like) and use frameworks to help you build more advanced websites that you can charge higher fees for and that you can offer monthly support for.

Another thing you need to be good at (especially if you are a freelancer) is business negotiation and customer relationships.

By understanding the core needs of customers and offering expert user interface, UX advice, you will be able to build a relationship based on trust and be respected by your customers.

Read some good books on sales, on how to build great proposals, how to be respected by clients (so that you are not working as a slave but as a partner on a project). They are much easier to learn than PHP, but are sometimes difficult to apply in the real world. It will take practice, but once your first great proposal is accepted, the next one will get bigger ...

Check out Brennan Dunn's books and Double Your Freelancing blog. They opened my eyes on how to reach out to my clients.

I'm still just a front-end developer. But I am also a good businessman and have learned to build great customer relationships while offering my expertise at a higher price.

None. HTML / CSS and JavaScript are simply tools for getting work done. The question you asked is similar to asking, "What types of jobs are available to those who know how to use a hammer, screwdriver, and power drill?"

" Anyone looking to hire someone is much more interested in their abilities than their knowledge.

"Knowing" HTML / CSS / JavaScript is not impressive at all for someone who is hiring, what is going to impress someone is the type of projects they have completed with those tools.
