customizing your squarespace website  | live video training extravaganza

Welcome to Day 3 of my Live Video Training Extravaganza!

On Monday June 29, 2019, I kicked things off with the first daily live video training over on my Youtube channel and every day this week (and probably next week too!), I’ll be doing even more live video trainings for you… and then sharing the replays here on the blog.

Day 3’s video training was a blast and and I can’t wait for you to watch the replay.

In this video training, we talked all about how to customize your Squarespace template.

I built on Day 2’s video topic which was all about how to choose the right Squarespace template (watch that here) and took you forward through the template customization process. LOTS of amazing information here all about the settings, features and design of your Squarespace template!

I love talking about ways to customize your Squarespace template because NOBODY wants a basic bitty website. Nope, we have zero interest in a run-of-the-mill website that obviously looks like a template. Customization is so powerful because it allows you to truly make your website your own, embrace a look & feel that reflects your brand/business, and really speaks to your ideal clients online.

Here’s what we talked about in this video training:

  • Customize the Site styles & design : Fonts, colors, headers, navigation display (placement, above/below logo, etc.), buttons (shapes, sizes, colors), background color of site, padding, etc.

  • Pages & Posts : Pages (blog post) vs Pages (Home, About, Services, Contact pages, etc.). I love building Index pages because they offer more customizations that Regular pages (full width images, background colors for sections)

  • Make use of various content blocks: Summary block (grid, carousel), Gallery blocks (great for photos, portfolios, visual content), search bar, quote section, events

  • Reformat sizes of elements on a page/post : e.g., image size (full width, half screen)

  • Columns using Spacer blocks

  • Squarespace settings/features to customize: Favicon, Social Sharing Logo, Parallax Scrolling, Blog Sidebar, Navigation/menu (location, use folders for drop-down functionality), Announcement bar and popups
