Why Squarespace website design?
Squarespace includes both a domain name AND hosting so everything is in one place and you don’t have to worry about any of the complicated things on the backend. You can do an entire website without any coding but at the end of the course, we will teach you little bits of CSS coding in order to help you add the final touches to make your website unique.
We’ve been avid members of the Squarespace community for many years now. We’ve been providing help via YouTube, Reddit, Facebook groups, and our own blog. As an Authorized Squarespace Trainer, Squarespace Expert, and Squarespace Circle Member, not only do we think we know our stuff, but Squarespace thinks so too!
* Note: This course is based on Squarespace 7 *
