In Detail

Squarespace is a powerful website builder and management system that allows you to create polished websites that look fantastic on both desktops and mobile devices, without the help of a web designer or developer. Despite this, it can be hard to know where to start and it’s easy to get confused by the extensive range of functions, templates, and controls available. Following a tried-and-tested process for building your site with Squarespace, you need to perform essential tasks in the right order, to ensure your website launches on time and presents the perfect image for your business.

This practical guide walks you through the various steps involved in building a website for your business with Squarespace. You will learn how to use all of the tools provided by Squarespace to control the layout, appearance, structure, and functions of your website, starting from the inception stage, all the way to monitoring your site after launch.

This is much more than just a how-to book for the Squarespace system: it’s filled with helpful advice for improving your website’s visibility in search engines and tailoring your site for your customers. Moreover, it provides dozens of other business-oriented tips to help your website stand out from the crowd. If you have used Squarespace 5 or other website builders/CMSes, this book will help you understand the key differences and teach you how to do things based on the new features of Squarespace 7.

Whether you are creating a simple website for your own small business, or you need a robust online shop for a busy retail firm, you will learn everything you need to ensure your Squarespace website project is successful.
