About this Event

A website is one of the best ways for people to find out about your business; your brand, what services or products you offer, how to contact you, how to give you money etc.

There are some great (and not so great) template-based build-your-own programs available, and after a LOT of research, we think that Squarespace is the best option for most new businesses. This is because Squarespace is:

  • Super easy to use
  • A high-quality platform that will serve you well for years to come
  • Has everything built-in, such as SEO coding, hosting and eCommerce
  • Is a low cost option, and incredible value for the quality that it delivers

Our website courses are a great way to arm yourself with the tools that you will need to try it yourself. Plus, you’ll save HOURS of trial-and-error and trawling through YouTube. Trust us, your hair and nerves with thank you!

This all-day workshop will be split into two sessions and you’ll need to be on your laptop with you so that you can create as you go (you will be unable to use your mobile or small tablet to build a website).

Session 1 - Morning (10am-12.30pm) - All Levels

This session will cover the absolute basics of using Squarespace and how it works so that you can get started, or edit an existing site.

  • Choosing the right template for you
  • How to add and delete pages
  • How to easily edit pages and move things around
  • How to change the content on each page, (including adding images and text)

Please note, you will need to be comfortable with drag-and-drop, saving and retrieving files, and using your internet browser to be suitable for this course. Please contact us if you’re unsure if you’ll be IT-savvy enough to enjoy this course.

Session 2 - Afternoon (1.30-4pm) - Intermediate level

The afternoon session will move at a faster pace and is best suited to those who are comfortable learning new programs. If you’re unsure if this would be suitable for you, we’re happy to advise / assess your ability after the morning session.

We’ll cover:

  • Adding new blocks (such as forms, videos and summaries)
  • Adding hyperlinks to images, buttons and text
  • Connecting up your social media accounts, including adding a live Insta feed
  • Connecting up your domain name (we recommend GoDaddy if you don’t already have one)
  • Adding your brand font, colours and styling to your site
  • Checking mobile compatibility

Please also feel free to attend the ‘Make sure that your Website SELLS‘ course on before attending this workshop.

If you would like some help with setting up your website, you can book in a 1-1 session with Liz and build it together.

This workshop will take place at our Centre in central Midland. For those unable to attend in person, you do have the option to attend via Zoom. However, we have found that attendees get much more from the workshop if they attend in person and we also may not be able to answer all questions both in the room and on zoom, so we urge you to attend in person where possible.

For the benefit of the entire group, latecomers will no longer be admitted as it is too disruptive to the flow of the course, and isn’t fair on those who are on time.

BOSS Centre courses and sessions are ONLY available to people in Western Australia. If you are elsewhere, here’s the link to find your local service www.efs.org.au
