​Build​ ​Your​ ​Own​ ​Squarespace Website​ ​Workshop

Squarespace is an amazing tool for entrepreneurs, freelancers, bloggers, photographers, artists, creatives and startups looking to build a beautifully designed website quickly and easily.

In this workshop, you’ll learn how to choose a template, customize the look and feel of your website, lay out content, and leave with the beginnings of your very own website. In order for your business to remain competitive and relevant, you need a professional website.

Learning a website builder can be frustrating, time consuming, and expensive. Whether you’ve put off creating a website for ages, have a months-old half-finished website, or are looking for a fresh redesign on a modern platform, this workshop is for you.

We’ll give you the tools you need to create an impactful, beautiful, and low maintenance website on Squarespace. No coding experience necessary!
