Freelancing is Hard. We can help.

Rocketspark is here to help; freelance coaching, design referrals and the best local support in the business.

Freelancing can be lonely. Join our Partner Programme and we'll be right there with you. Every step of the way.

Back in 2006 when I started as a freelance graphic designer I faced a range of challenges — like finding clients, knowing what to charge, how to quote, preparing tax returns, paying thousands for CD-based design software, working with developers to code websites — and as a result lived with my parents to help pay the bills.

I won't go as far as to say I was lonely, but I definitely noticed I enjoyed the moments when I was with people, be they clients or otherwise. The other thing I missed was inspiration. Not having other people to bounce ideas off of, or to get inspired by a comment of a colleague, meant every creative output had to come from me. It was tiring. It was unsustainable.

“As a design partner for Rocketspark, I have to commend them on their fast support response times, their friendly and helpful support team, and active development team. Designing websites with the Rocketspark CMS has been a great experience, and I have many happy clients from this.”

- Izaak Wicks, The Dream Factory

So 5 years ago Rocketspark launched our Partner Programme to make sure that no one else had to struggle through what I did. We designed the Programme to be something greater than just the Design Studio. We wanted to create a community. Did we succeed? Well, 5 years later, we have nearly 300 Partners all over the world. They come together in our Facebook group. The email each other and us for support and advice. Every 2 years they congregate for our 2 day conference. I'd say yes, we've created a fantastic network, a fantastic community.

If you join the Rocketspark Design Partner Programme, we’ll support you with real, actual help and advice to not only grow your web design skills, but your web design business. You’ll feel connected with exclusive access to a community of like-minded design partners that’ll provide you with inspiration and encouragement.
