Edit a HTML Website Template

Editing your Website Content

Once you have selected and downloaded your template to a folder on your computer you will need to edit the content. You will be replacing the example text and images with your own. You will need to understand a little HTML to do this. But with the right text editor and some patience it will be easy to do. I have found the hardest part is to write good content for a website. You need original content (don’t copy from another site). Your content should be focused on your services or products. Select two or three key words or phrases. Right them down and use them naturally in the context of your web pages. Don’t stuff them in or over use them.

This article will focus on replacing the “filler” content that came with a website template with your own content.

Selecting your HTML Template

Creating a website from scratch takes creative skill and knowledge of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. Paying a web design firm to do this for you can cost thousands of dollars. But you can do it yourself without learning CSS or JavaScript. You just need some very basic understanding of HTML. Simply purchase a professionally built template that already has the design and all the code done for you. You then replace the images and text with your own to customize the website for your needs.

This post will guide you through the steps in selecting an HTML template that you can use for your small business website.
