Why SquareSpace?

 We started using SquareSpace in 2016 having used various other website platforms and never looked back. For us, SquareSpace is the most balanced web build platform available. It is easy to use and edit, yet incredibly professional and feature rich. It is flexible enough to be extensively edited but without danger of ‘breaking’ elements of the site. The stability and quality of the platform gives all businesses peace-of-mind, as well as “out-of-the-box” SEO with the ability to improve search engine visibility even further. And the investment SquareSpace is pouring into the platform means that it is improving all the time, keeping pace with the latest search engine requirements, adding new marketing options all while remaining incredible stable and reliable.

We’re James and Kelly West, the founders of Clean Slate Websites. We are authorised SquareSpace trainers and we’ve built hundreds of websites.

This has taught us two important lessons. Firstly, we know what it takes to build very effective websites using SquareSpace. Secondly, we know the challenges people have when building a website and how to make the best possible start.

Why did we build this course?

Firstly, lots of people have asked us to! It also helps us fulfill one of our primary business aims, which is to demystify websites and allow business owners to take control. Our experience building sites for clients and running website workshops means we understand this process inside-out and this has allowed us to build a concise and powerful training resource. This course allows us to help significantly more people build their website than we could ever do in person.

As professional web designers, why do we use SquareSpace?

James’ background as a journalist and editor means he values how SquareSpace allows you to focus on the content and messaging, while using powerful SEO and marketing tools to grow your business. With her history in design and now as a business mentor, Kelly loves how SquareSpace allows you to create beautiful, functional websites which are easy to manage and flexible, allowing her clients to change their website as their business evolves.
