First steps, setting up your Squarespace account

 

 

Setting up your account is simple, head to squarespace.com and from the homepage click on ‘Get Started’ in the top right hand corner of the screen. From here you will be given two options:

  • Start by answering a few questions - this section will lead you through a series of questions about your requirements for your website, on completion Squarespace will recommend a suitable template for you to start with.

  • Start by browsing templates - this is for you if you want to head straight to the templates and pick the correct one for you based on the aesthetics of the site.

Don’t worry - whichever option you pick, you will have the ability to change the template at a later date if you decide you don’t like your original choice.

Watch the video below for more detail.

When you first activate your Squarespace account, you get a free 14 day trial period where you can use the platform and have full access before committing to the fees. You will need to activate your plan before your site can go live
