These days we don’t have to do everything by ourselves. When it comes to build a website, create HTML structure and decorate the web layout, there are free templates we can use. Yes I guess the simplest way to build a website is to download free templates and customized it as you like. For beginners who just know a little bit of HTML and or CSS or less, that will definitely help. One of the first steps to earn money via internet would be to build a website.
I collected these free website templates with CSS. Some offer free-download versions, and some offer both free-download as well as commercial templates. I find them interesting, easy to customized, and save time.
The advantages using that are you don’t have to do all the work with creating HTML structure and CSS, and pictures/backgrounds. However a basic knowledge of HTML or HTML-CSS is always useful.
I learnt basic HTML and CSS first before I found out that there are plenty of free templates out there. I didnt thought that there are so many since I know how much a web-designer will charge for a commercial website. An acquaintance of a friend had just paid 600$ for a simple webdesign with 5-10pages. I wished I had known that acquaintance to offer my webdesign service. LOL.

Here are layout examples using CSS. This might be useful for people who want to integrate CSS instant-layout with their own web design. Otherwise the instant-design from the free webtemplates above should be easier. Here they give you a set of column layout set by CSS, whether it is one-column, two-column or three-column, in different configurations. Once again, these layouts are without ready-to-use design, meaning you will have to make your own navigation, search and put graphics/photos/backgrounds by yourself, and links.
