A website is one of the best ways for people to find out about your business; your brand, what services or products you offer, how to contact you, how to give you money etc.
There are some great (and not so great) template-based build-your-own programs available, and after a LOT of research, we think that Squarespace is the best option for most new businesses. This is because Squarespace is:
Super easy to use
A high-quality platform that will serve you well for years to come
Has everything built-in, such as SEO coding, hosting and eCommerce
Is a low cost option, and incredible value for the quality that it delivers
Our website courses are a great way to arm yourself with the tools that you will need to try it yourself. Plus, you’ll save HOURS of trial-and-error and trawling through YouTube. Trust us, your hair and nerves with thank you!
In this workshop, we’ll walk you through step-by-step how it all works, how to personalise your site and update it whenever you like. You may even have your basic page layout completed by the time you leave! We’ll cover:
Choosing the right template for you
How to add and delete pages
How to easily edit pages and move things around
Adding new blocks (such as images, forms, videos and links)
Connecting up social media
Connecting up your domain name
This session will move quite quickly to cover as much ground as possible during the time, but you’ll be given a handout to take home with you! If you’re not confident on computers, you may struggle with this session, but you’re welcome to still attend.
This workshop will be presented by Liz Haselgrove who is an Authorised Trainer for Squarespace, after having built Squarespace websites for nearly a decade.
It is highly recommended that you also attend the morning’s Website course if possible so that you can learn about SEO, marketing and what you need to include in your website. Please make sure that you book in for BOTH sessions if you would like to attend both.
