Build Your Own Website Over 4 Weeks - Using Squarespace

THE COURSE

7-9pm over 4 weeks

Squarespace is known around the globe as the leading platform for creating self managed, beautiful, modern and mobile-ready websites - without the need for a designer or developer. If you can turn on a computer and work a mouse, you can create your own website. And importantly manage your site as you grow with the need for expensive ongoing support.

Using Squarespace you can create powerful landing pages, striking galleries, a professional blog, or an online store. 

You know that having a modern, effective and mobile responsive website is a must for businesses and consultants. And even for those not in business, the knowledge of how to create websites is a skill you can use for events, projects and just to tuck into your skill set for future jobs.  There is no need to pay thousands of dollars each year to manage technical and complicated websites, Squarespace is the perfect platform for small businesses and individuals who want to use an easy, intuitive and beautiful interface, used by brands and businesses around the world.

Armed with content ideas that you will have completed as part of the pre-work, you'll design and build your own beautiful and effective website in just 4 weeks, ready to take live when you want. We'll even help you get your own domain name and url. 

Squarespace offers websites from US$9 a month. Learn how to design and build your own website from experts that have been using Squarespace for years.

This course is delivered over 4 weeks in the evening. Giving you time between sessions to develop your ideas, business products and services and design.
