Book Description

Squarespace is a web-based tool that allows non-technical people to create and manage professional-looking websites quickly, without needing to write any code. It empowers owners to take total control of their own websites, without needing to pay someone to design or maintain it.

This book goes into more depth than the online help guides provided by Squarespace, and focuses on all aspects of creating a successful business website, not just the nuts and bolts of creating pages. It includes topics such as creating a brand identity, writing and structuring website content and other crucial that are not part of the actual Squarespace itself, but are critical to the act of creating a website.

The book will start by helping you plan your website and gather all the raw materials you'll need. Next, you'll set up your account and become familiar with the terminology and tools that you'll be using. Once you've learned the basics of how the Squarespace interface, template and different page types operate, you will create the framework of your website, ready for you to fill with content and functionality. Then, once all the core elements are in place, you'll apply the aesthetic fine-tuning needed to bring your website in line with your brand. After the aesthetics have been honed and all tested, you will launch your website and show you how to drive traffic to it, monitor it, and improve it.
