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 it’s tempting to give this a go rather than spending $$$ on hiring a professional designer. However, it’s very important to consider how much you can potentially be losing in sales by doing it yourself, rather than hiring someone to do it for you, someone who really knows how to set it all up and working tirelessly for you.
If you want to try building your own website, our Website 1 and Website 2 half-day 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 Website 2 you will learn how to build your own website using Squarespace (in our expert opinion, the easiest and most robust system to use) and put some of the lessons into practice. 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.
Website 1 and 2 will be run 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 1 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.
