A step-by-step Guide to Building Your Own Website in Squarespace

  • Business One Stop Shop 12 Cale Street Midland, WA 6056 Australia (map)

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.

This session was presented well for people with different levels of understanding. I also learned about some more advanced features and understand how powerful Sqaurespaces functionality is.
