Question Is There Hope For Web Design Firms At This Day & Age?

I just posted an introduction on the other board about me. For those who haven't read it, I'm basically a freelance web designer. I do more than just design pages though, I deal with domain names, hosting, maintenance, etc.

I've always believed that competition is just too high in this field (especially because these days even kids can design web pages and make money off that online), and some small businesses prefer to design their own web pages instead of hiring someone else to do the job.

But now that I've been doing this for several years, I'm starting to think there's still hope to open a web design firm...and it could turn out to be more profitable than I had previously thought.

I believe that with thorough planning and sufficient start-up capital, I could bring this freelance job to the next level and maybe even develop it into a full-blown profitable business.

Is anyone in here a web designer or developer working for a web design company? Any thoughts or opinions on my idea; i.e. do you believe opening a design company is a dead-end idea or is there hope for it at this day and age?
