Square It Yourself

A self-paced course to help you design and build a Squarespace website unique to you

What if you could build a website for your business, on a small budget?

No need to hire a fancy developer, and no need to call them every time you want to make a slight change in the future.

Square It Yourself will give you what you need to launch your website for your business or blog, within your Squarespace 14 day free trial. No knowledge of how the backend of websites even works?! No worries. We've got you covered.


Once you've decided you want to use Squarespace, this course will talk you through every other step. From picking a template and starting a trial, to launching a simple page as your minimum viable product, then designing all of your website pages, and adding all of the whizz bang extras to make your website unique, and the perfect fit for your brand.

What's included?

Tour videos, breaking down each of the features of Squarespace website, blog, marketing, settings, and more

Step-by-step instructional videos for everything to launch a website, such as adding your domain, making changes to the style of your site, and building pages

Tips and tactics for laying out your website for optimal conversion

What's not included?

Instructional videos for using Squarespace Commerce are not included in this course. They are however, available as an additional course, which will be available both separately, and in a bundle with this course. This is not included within this original course, because Commerce is not available in the Personal payment plan, so we understand not everyone will need this content. We have created it separately, for those who need it.

However, we've packaged it all up for you in one simple place, with strategies, tactics and tips to save you time, and to help you make the most out of your website.
