How to add and style a button in Squarespace - video tutorial

When you think of buttons, think beyond Benjamin Button and Brad Pitt's adventures in ageing. 

Instead, let's talk about buttons in web design/development and how they are one of my favourite Squarespace features!

I use buttons on every single website I build and design for my clients. I love when buttons are styled with a pop of colour and stand alone without surrounding clutter because then they are much more likely to be clicked. Whether we use them on web pages or within a blog post, buttons are a wonderful way to highlight a call-to-action (CTA) that you want people to take.

Once you decide to add a button to your Squarespace website, don't forget to style it so that it matches your site's branding and aesthetic!

How to track your website growth with my spreadsheet template

You know the saying "What gets measured gets managed?"

It has been the guiding mantra for my 2017 business and website goals since I wanted to seriously up my game this year.

I have so many big plans and ideas for 2017 and I knew that having a "bigger" website with a larger reach would help me achieve the kind of results I'm looking for. I knew that if I wanted to grow my website and guarantee that all my plans actually happened, I would need to get serious and stay on top of my site's data & statistics.

When it comes to growing a website, there are SO many factors that come into play. Obviously you have to look at the raw numbers of how many visits and page views your site is getting, but what about social media, product/service revenue, affiliate programs, media mentions and email list? I couldn't forget about those too!
