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:

  1. Sign up for Squarespace

  2. Choose a Template

  3. Make a Trial Account


Step 1: Sign up for squarespace

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.)
