We are insanely excited for our latest announcement (we have plenty more coming! Eeekkk!) and this one is for all our Raleigh-area bosses! I’m going to be teaching a Squarespace basics class through SkillPop! YAY! If you’ve ever wanted to learn how to build your own site or you don’t think you’re utilizing your current template to your benefit, this class is for you!
If you haven’t heard of SkillPop and you live near either Charlotte or Raleigh (they also just went on tour around the Southeast!), you need to look them up. They host pop-up classes taught by area experts and they have everything from cookie decorating (yum!) to handlettering to Adobe Illustrator and blogging classes. Basically they have a little of everything and I’m seriously excited to bring the first Squarespace class to the Triangle! WOOO!
Here’s the 411:
The class will be on May 31st from 6:30-8:30pm at The Mayton Inn in Cary and is just $28. During the two hour class, we’ll be going over:
- Introduction to Squarespace: Benefits and features
- How to set up an account through Squarespace
- How to choose a template for your business, blog, or brand
- The basics of building your pages and site
- How to structure your site
- Different types of content pages and how to create them
- How to add various design blocks
- Images, text, buttons, galleries, etc.
- How to use the style editor for a custom look
- How to connect social accounts
- Back-end SEO
You can follow along while I show you how to do each of these steps or you can sit back and take it all in because during the second half of the class, you’ll be setting up your Squarespace account (Yay for free trials!) and start designing your own website! I’ll be on hand to answer any questions, provide guidance, and design feedback. You’ll also receive a handout to bring home with you that will have tips and tricks so you can finish everything up at home!
I don’t want you to just learn how to create a website that is just “good enough”. I want to help you learn how to use all of Squarespace’s features to give your website the custom design you’re looking for!
Not in the Raleigh area? Don’t worry, we’ll actually have classes like this in the Bold Boss School once our classes launch!
