This is not one of those overwhelming and unhelpful "build a website" courses (and not just because it's totally free for you).
This is the real deal. It's "exactly what you need to know right now, in the order that actually makes sense" kind of stuff.
This is a guide that will strip away your fears and confusions and show you that even YOU can build an awesome website.
The thought of building a website probably freaks you out because:
- only techies who have been coding since they had braces can build a website
- you have to be fluent in every coding language to get a decent site up and running
- it costs an arm and a leg to build a website and you'd probably have to hire a small army
- it takes months to launch a site
Good news, my friends. It's not that hard.
1 lesson a day for 7 days.
That's all it takes. You'll have a beautiful Squarespace website live in one week.
Anyone can build a website if they know the right steps to take. Launching a website doesn't have to be something that makes you want to rip your hair out.
Building a website has never been easier and using a platform like Squarespace makes anyone's business dreams come true. These industry changes are GREAT news for someone like you! If you've got an idea, an iota of creativity, and aren't afraid of a little tinkering, you're exactly the kind of person who can launch a website successfully.
Are you ready to launch a Squarespace website?
This is a free 7-day email course that will show you exactly how to build and launch a website using Squarespace that looks amazing and does everything you want.
You'll get a daily email containing a new lesson delivered right to your inbox for 7 days.
You won't receive the same old information that's been shipped around for years. That's because this isn't your everyday "build a website" guide.
This course isn't for everyone. It IS for people who know that while they might be totally clueless today, they have what it takes to build a killer website with the right direction.
If you're ready to turn your idea into a full-blown beautiful website, this course is for you.
What you'll learn:
Defining the purpose of your website
Securing a domain and Squarespace hosting
Choosing the best Squarespace template
Building the right structure for your website
What to do before you launch
Branding your website
Before I built my first website, I had an end goal in mind but no clue how to do it. I didn't know what steps to take, let alone what order to do them in. Honestly, I had very basic skills but zero understanding of what I was about to do.
I figured I would:
spend hours (days, even?) watching and reading online tutorials
build a site by trial and error
- eventually fumble my way to something that passed as a website - even if it looked straight out of the 90s
If that makes me sound like a hot mess, you are right.
I knew I wanted to build a website but I didn't know how to do it effectively and I had no direction.
Luckily, I've come a long way since then.
I promise, there is a better and smarter way to build a website you love. I'm here to show you how.
If this course is so great, why is it free?
I love building websites. Whether it's a personal or business website, I have a blast. And even though I know what I'm doing now, I remember how it felt to be a beginner. I see people trying to follow outdated advice that just doesn't make sense anymore and I want to show you that anyone can build a website. I get major satisfaction from seeing people playing around with a platform as easy to use as Squarespace and it's even better when they get the results they want.
And yes, I hope you'll take this course and like me more than you do already! I hope that you'll want to join my community, connect with me and maybe even collaborate together someday. I hope you'll think, wow Charlotte knows what's up.
will i actually learn something? IS THIS A BUNCH OF INFORMATION I'LL ALREADY KNOW?
Yes you will and no, I don't think so. There's a lot of information out there that promises to tell you "how to build a website" but most of it is filled with outdated fluff. When I first started out, I tried following their directions and it didn't help me out. I was frustrating and made me feel pretty dumb.
I've come a long way since then and I actually know what I'm doing now. I decided to create the guide I wish I'd had when I wanted to launch my first website. This course is different from the other "how to's" you'll find on line. It's filled with my tried, tested and true advice and it's intended to get you results. Plus, I wrote it in a way that you'll actually understand - it is NOT filled with technical jargon!
What's your deal again?
Hello again, I'm Charlotte. I love building and maintaining websites, specifically on the Squarespace platform, and I want to help you do the same. I'm a web developer and designer who works with individuals and businesses to create beautiful websites. I'm also a pretty avid tech writer and I love incorporating teaching into the articles on my blog.
As a person, I'm a girl from Vancouver who likes nachos, drinking wine on a patio, and spending as much time as possible being active outdoors.
