UPDATE: I’m converting my workshop outlines into PDF format: Getting Started Outline PDF
In this workshop, we’ll walk you through what you need to know to get started. Each of these workshops is tailored with the small business owner, photographer, and blogger in mind, but all that we cover can be applied to a multitude of industries.
In this first of several Squarespace Workshops, you learn the basics of setting up your website from scratch. Unless you are completely new to the platform, you can probably skip this class. That’s not to say that it’s bad or anything, just that it’s a very cursory overview of the inner workings of the Squarespace software. I’ve outlined the main points the instructor hit on and added notes to certain items I thought might deserve some helpful tips. This write-up is more of an outline to let you see if it’s worth 45 min of your life. I don’t go in too much detail as I think the Squarespace help docs are enough to get you started with these basic concepts. However, I will be elaborating more on future workshops. You can view the example website, http://paulinagram.squarespace.com/settings-for-getting-started/ which includes other helpful links that cover the material learned in the workshop. You can sign up for this workshop here or view a previously recorded version here.
