What about Webpreneur? Might be more confusing than anything else :-D

No, to be serious – I would go with self-employed – thats what you do and what describes it the best. You get the respect and there shouldn’t be any question left except of “what exactly do you do?” ^^

Used to say “working from home as web designer” but a few times received replies like “do you get remuneration?” in a doubtful way and later saying only Self Employed. There is another set of people, for them I have to say “computer work” :P

I often get ask how I earn my money or what my job is. I’ve serious problems to describe it in few words. Often I get responses like “you do homepages?” or ”$ 15,- for over a month of work?” or “Can you check my PC, some strange things going on?” How do you explain your job as author to people with no sense for digital media? A one sentence solution would be perfect ;)
@revaxarts.. You MAKE and SELL digital goods! And from your elite badge, youre very good at it.. no unemployed!!!! never ! :)

i always say:

“i sell designs on the Internet”

“i’m a freelance designer”

“I’m my own boss”

“I make money while you and me sleep”
