    You can always do both. Develop your own sites and then market them.

    The best option for you is probably based upon your skills. Do you have more experience and expertise in development or in marketing?

    There's no easy answer for this. There are Web Developers and Online Marketers who make full time salary. Then there are those who are still struggling.

    Try both, start out small first then scale appropriately. For example, see if you can get some clients first before you spend $1000s of dollars on a home made studio. Always adjust your expense accordingly. There are too many people who make the mistake of overspending before making small streams of steady income.

    Which is better? A bicycle or a fishing pole.
    Which is better? A bowl of ice cream or a flashlight.
    Which is better? A headache or a pulled muscle.

    No one knows you, your skills, talent, or interests. How can anyone answer which is better?

        Undoubtedly, yes.

        But even if you are the best web developer in the world, you still have to sell yourself, to market yourself.

        Which brings us back to marketing.

    Just connecting the dots the quickest is a straight line. You have web design skills. So, do web design. Put up your own freelance site, or create your profile on outsourcing sites like upwork. Bid on jobs. You can also post an ad in classified section of this forum and other forums.

    Yes, you can definitely earn money through your skills of developing web. Study about online marketing and promote yourself as a good web developer. Trying to advertise your portfolio over the web and use your social account to promote your skills.
