Social Engine Optimization
Business sense

You need to know operating of following softwares that are useful for designing:

1) Photoshop, 2) Flash, 3) Corel draw and 4) Dreamweaver

In addition to that you also need to learn coding and programming skills to build website. Programming skills you MUST know are:

Website maintenance and trouble shooting skills:
Web designers are also engaged in uploading website online, website maintenance and any troubleshooting. For this, you should know webhosting platforms, web traffic analysis, web content management etc.
