By breaking it down step by step, we guide you towards making your most beautiful and functional website.
What truly goes into making a site functional, effective, informative, aesthetically pleasing, and SEO efficient? These are the questions at the core of any great site. The answer lies in:
• Aligning the brand with a clear and simple message
• Creating visually striking and exceptional imagery
• Integrating keywords into each page, page title, and url
• Linking your social media accounts through shared wording, shared pictures, and shared video
• Some clients have certain needs that others may not and vice versa. But these core components remain the same and are the essential ingredients to building the right site.
This class is recommended for students that need one on one attention. We spend the entire session completely on their website and needs. This is great for students that have a deadline for completing their website or want it up and running within a week.
Students will learn:
• Setting up a SquareSpace account
• Connecting a domainChoosing a template
• Linking social media accounts to website
• The basics of curating a blog
• Adding and editing pages & blog posts
• Adding images, videos, documents, pdfs, and other content
• Creating Menus

Please bring your laptop. Though it’s not necessary it helps to have pertinent content readily available including written material, photos, videos, pdfs, documents, links, and any other useful material. You will need a domain name so please compile a list of options in case one or more are already taken.
This was such an amazing class. Lynette was a thoughtful teacher. She took time to learn how I like to learn and give me opportunities to watch her work as well as work myself. She was incredibly knowledgeable and generous. I will for sure use her again if I need more help with my work. I left feeling excited to finish my project and like I could reach out to her if I need to.
Lynette was really sweet and got right into showing us how to get started on creating our websites. I’ve a good base now and enough knowledge to edit going forward.
Great introductory class. Just 2 people in class so a lot of individual support.
Patient and knowledgeable...provided much needed guidance to improve my website.

I had a great session. The instructior was fabulous. I learnt alot but more importantly I enjoyed the experience. It was a very positive class and we left the door open for more classes and advancement. I would highly recommend this course it successfully delivered on its description and more to boot.
My instructor is very patient and professional. She addressed concerns I had and helped me to gain confidence at understanding and using the knowledge she shared. I highly recommend her.
Lynette has great design skills and SquareSpace knowledge, not to mention great flexibility and patience as a teacher! She left us with really helpful course materials for future use, and was throughout willing to go above and beyond to make sure our site was working just as we'd hoped. Thank you so much!
