Squarespace is one of the top systems to help people build a website in no time at all. It offers a wide range of creative tools and is simple to use. Even beginners can get to grips with the platform and have their website built within an hour.
Here is how to use Squarespace in some simple steps.
Step 1 – Sign Up
The first step is to get started. Squarespace has one of the best free trials available. There's a 14-day free trial that you can use to start building your website. All you need to do is go and create your account here. Just simply click on ‘Get Started’.
Step 2 – Template
Once you’ve clicked on the ‘Get started you will be asked to select a design for your website. There are over 100 designs that you can choose from. If you want any help choosing a template, you can read the articles on the best Squarespace templates or the best eCommerce templates.
Otherwise, you can browse by industry or popular designs. There are certain ways that you can filter templates as well. The template you choose will act as the base design for your website, so it's best to see a few previews before selecting. This is more important on Squarespace because once selected, you can’t change your template.
Step 3 – Login
At this point, you need to create a login. There are two options here, sign up with an email address or use your Google account. You should then create a name for your website. This will display at the top of the website, but it can be changed.
Squarespace will then provide you with a few quick slides about how you can edit your website.
Step 4 – Add/Remove Pages
Now you need to add/remove pages on your website so you have all the functional pages that you want for your website. To add pages, go to the ‘Pages’ option and then click on the ‘+’ symbol.
To remove a page, just hover over the page on the menu and then there will be a garbage can emoji, just click on this and then ‘Confirm’.
Step 5 – Edit Pages
Now you need to edit the content with the page. This is about changing the text, adding images, adding videos and more. This can take a few days to complete.
Step 6 – Design Elements
Now you can tweak your design and then add some additional branding elements to make the website look more unique. This can include changing fonts, colours, etc.
Step 7 – Add Site Information
Now you need to go to the ‘Settings’ page and ensure that all the business information is completed. You should also connect your Domain name to the website to ensure people can visit it.
Step 8 – Preview
Now you need to preview your website. This allows you to test it, make sure everything works and then make any adjustments that you need.
