Module 1: Setting up your Squarespace Website
Thanks for joining us on DIY Your Squarespace Website Like A Pro!
Before we go getting our hands dirty, it's key to understand Squarespace as a platform before we use it. This module will cover how to set up an account, connect your domain and email, and get to know the platform in more detail.
If you already have an account set up with Squarespace, we still advise you to go through this entire module. We'll be showing you important places to add information about your business that will help your website's SEO - which is something we all want to improve, right!? (Don’t know what that is? Don’t worry. We’ll do a little overview when we get to that lesson.
Once your domain is connected, your URL will be operational, meaning your website is live. You’ll need a cover page so that people don’t go to your site and find it half made. We’ll show you how to create one in Lesson 4. Basically, we’ll be making a “Coming Soon” page for your business!
Some Modules have additional resources that can be downloaded to aid in your Squarespace website journey. All relevant resources for lessons will be located in the top right hand corner of the page underneath the module title.
We suggest spending up to 2 hours on “Module 1: Setting up your Squarespace Website”.
