Lesson 1: Meet Squarespace
It's time to dig in and get comfortable in Squarespace and the first thing we need to do is get you setup with a Squarespace account. Then we'll take a browse through the back end of Squarespace and familiarize you with the settings, design, and pages sections.
Allow yourself a fair amount of time to look at everything in the back end. We suggest up to an hour of playing around.
In this lesson we will:
Step 1: Sign up for squarespace
Go to squarespace.com and click "Start A Free Trial".
Step 2: Choose a template
There are a lot to choose from, but for now, search for "Rally" and use that as your starting point. (We chose Rally as your base template as it is a very flexible and versatile template – suitable for any business or industry. But if you find something more suitable, you can change your template at any time, or preview other options if you'd like at a later date.)
Click "Get Started".
Step 3: Make A Trial Account
Enter your information to create an account.
Time for a mini celebration because lesson 1 is done! Next we'll be talking about how to connect your domain and email, but until then, give yourself a pat on the back. You did some great work today!
