Description

A comprehensive hands-on course in which you will build your own Squarespace website for your creative business in just one day. Looking to sell your products/services online? Stay for the E-commerce Add-On Session and get your online store up & running, too.

Who it’s for:

This course is for creative businesses who want to get a Squarespace website up & running quickly. You do not need any prior website building experience, but you will need to carry out a series of pre-workshop tasks to gather your content and raw materials to bring to the course.

The main session will run from 09:00 - 15:00. There is an optional add-on session at the end of the day that covers setting up e-commerce on your new Squarespace website.

In this workshop you will:

  • Learn your way around the Squarespace platform & how to configure your site the right way
  • Learn the most efficient way to create your website, including tips & tricks not easily discovered on your own, such as SEO settings & specialist page types
  • Learn how to edit and manage your website to make day-to-day updates, push to social media, and monitor the website’s performance
  • Build your own Squarespace website, in one day, during the workshop
  • Learn how to launch your website, including what to do if you have an existing website that you need to replace
  • E-Commerce Add-on attendees will also set up their online store and learn how to handle orders, fulfilment and refunds

By the end of the workshop you will:

  • Understand how to use all the key design, editing, management and administrative tools in the Squarespace platform
  • Leave with a ready-to-launch or launched a website
  • E-Commerce Add-on attendees will also have their online store set up
