So I just graduated a few months ago with my IT degree and web design. There are no job around this area at all, and I really don't want to move at this point.

So I was thinking about starting my own business, at least something small on the side to make a little cash right now.

I was wondering how I should start... Should I start by just make several templates and selling those, and offering customizations to them? Then I can take custom design requests, and other things at a later time.

I've tried something similar before but I have no idea how to get people to come to my website. I had a website up for almost a year before and it didn't get any visitors the entire time.

I can't afford to pay for advertising.

I guess I'm just not sure where I should go from here...
