About This Workshop

Squarespace is an amazing tool for entrepreneurs, small business owners, artists, creatives, and anyone else who's looking to build a beautiful website quickly and easily.

Whether you've already started building your site in Squarespace and just need some help finessing the template, or if your website is still just a twinkle in your eye, this workshop will set you on the path to Squarespace greatness.

*Please note that we will be working within the traditional (non-developer) Squarespace platform in this workshop, and we will not be customizing the platform with code.

Takeaways

  • Choose a template
  • Customize your site's look and feel
  • Add and organize content
  • Optimize photos for display on the web
  • Use metadata for search engine optimization

...And much more!

Prereqs & Preparation

  • Students must have an active Squarespace account before class starts. A two-week, free trial is available for new accounts (you may request to reactivate expired trial accounts by contacting Squarespace customer service). You must choose a template when you start a trial account, but the instructor will offer guidance for choosing a template that best fits your needs and show you how to switch templates, if necessary.

  • All students must bring a laptop and please be sure that your computer has at least one of the Squarespace-supported browsers listed here:

https://support.squarespace.com/hc/en-us/articles/205815548-Supported-browsers

  • Having content prepared for your website is recommended but not required. For those students who already have content to add, the instructor recommends that you keep your website's assets (photos, YouTube/Vimeo video links, copy, etc.) in a separate folder on your desktop for easy access throughout the class.

  • The workshop will be 30-40% instruction and 60-70% hands-on assistance from the instructor (as needed), so please bring your questions with you.
