7 Steps to Internet Business | 6 HTML Table Templates

Before we get started with the table templates wanted to share the following with you . . . .

Caution :: Caution :: Caution

Had a phone call from an old acquaintannce last week. She was looking for help with her web page. It would seem that she ‘signed-up’ and paid for a program (Fortune Learning Systems) but was now having trouble getting them to deliver on services as promised. She wanted to know if we could help her get her website working (which we couldn’t). However, we did give her some questions to ask.

I know that with times as they are, there are a lot of people looking for a way to stay home and earn a few extra dollars …. or maybe start a new career on the Internet. All I can say is PLEASE  investigate any program you may think you want to pursue or invest in.  Look on line for scam reports, Better Business Bureau reports, blogs that monitor scams, etc. before investing any money. If it sounds too good to be true – it probably is.

Follow-up to this situation as of 12/21/2010- her web page is now up and running – but the items she mentioned not liking are still there.

7. Continue to add fresh, new content and update website bi-weekly at the very least.

Getting Started with a Website

If you’re not using a blog as your platform, you’ll need a website to showcase your services or products. For this you’ll either have to hire someone, use a ‘box’ program like DreamweaverQuick Start Guides.

If you like, you can use one layout  for the main page and a different one for internal pages of the site. These are all basic table layouts. Just copy and paste them into your HTML editor.

Once you’ve done this, you will need to include META tags, select desired background colors, set the CSS for individual pages, include images, links, navigation and text.  Links to get code can be found here –  ‘Table Templates’  – or from the ‘6 HTML Table Templates’ page in the left sidebar.

When you’ve completed the page, save it and upload when ready. Final thought, the page you will want to use for the home page must be saved under the name ‘index.html’.
