Squarespace is an awesome tool for business owners, entrepreneurs, startups, non-profits, individuals or anyone wanting to build a beautiful website quickly and easily. But for new users, there can be a lot to grasp technically. In this 2-day workshop, you’ll learn how to choose a template, customize the look and feel of your website, lay out content, and leave with the beginnings of your very own website.
Whether you are just starting up or you need to revamp your existing website, our team is excited to work with you every step of the way. Space is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Update! Becky Pearce, a trusted colleague, will be joining us on day 2 to talk about using social media to build your online brand.

We require that all attendees take their creative research assignment seriously. Prior to attending the workshop you must fully complete our creative website questionnaire, write out all website wording/content, and create your Squarespace* and Google Analytics account. But don’t worry, we guide you every step of the way. We are not able to design and launch an amazing site with you if there are missing pieces. Your content is a vital part of the overall design. All homework is due two weeks before the workshop. Any late homework incurs a $150 late fee. Logo design is available upon request for an additional $750***.
Reserve your seat by paying a $750 non-refundable deposit. The second payment will be required two weeks out from the workshop date. We will create your website on the Squarespace* platform using only the base designs from the template gallery. Workshop spaces are limited to 6-10 people. Travel and accommodations are not included. Upon receiving your registration, we will send you an invoice for the non-refundable deposit via Quickbooks so you can make a payment online using a credit card or check.
*Squarespace has a monthly subscription cost that is sold separately. However, there is a 14-day trial to get you started.
**Squarespace has partnered with Getty Images for stock photography. There is a one-time fee of $10 per photo. This is in addition to your workshop fee and Squarespace fee. In our experience, you’ll want to budget for 1-2 photos per page.
*** We will complete the logo before the workshop.
