DIY Your Squarespace Website Like A Pro


Sitting on a Squarespace template and not making progress? Uncertain of how to DIY your own website but don’t have the budget to hire someone?

This course is the direct result of our in-person Squarespace workshops in which we guided others through our process of building a website. Now you can learn how to use Squarespace, how to think like a designer, and how to write and prepare content for your website.

Go beyond template customizations and thoughtfully design the structure and layout of your website, as well as the individual pages.
