Learn to build a website in a night

One of the most common things we hear from clients, is they want control of their website; to have the ability to add, remove and edit content themselves. We know creating a successful and well ranking website can be on the expensive side when starting a business. Perhaps your budget is a bit tighter than planned, or maybe you’d just like to learn for yourself and save a bit of time and cash? As the only Squarespace accredited trainers in Tasmania, we’d love to give you a hand. 

What is Squarespace? 

Known for their high visual impact sites, Squarespace is a hosted website building platform that utilises "building" blocks to construct sites within a template system. Squarespace powers millions of websites across hundreds of industries for small businesses, large corporations, and people like you. 

Why Squarespace?

You’ll look like an expert right from the start. Squarespace utilise innovative and award winning designers to give you the most stunning way to present your ideas online. There’s a whole bunch of different templates to choose from to suit any website concept. Completely customisable templates make adding and deleting images, information and other components of your site a breeze. 

Every template comes with top of the line built-in integrations like Adobe Creative Suite, Google Drive, Getty Images and more - meaning you’ll never have to navigate an app marketplace or install any plug-ins. Squarespace offers domains and Google G Suite @yourdomain to get you started. Squarespace Domains are simple to set up and fully transparent. A unique domain gives your website a professional look, strengthens your brand, and makes it easier for visitors to find you. 

Easily preview how your site will look on any size screen throughout the design process. More importantly, you’ll only have to design your site once with the Squarespace mobile and device optimisation technology. Make it yours… Add a store to sell your products or services, a portfolio to showcase your work, a blog to share your mind, whatever works for you!
