Creating Your Squarespace Account
It's no doubt that Squarespace has grown tremendously within the last few years. You can often see why people have made the switch from other platforms like Wordpress, Blogger, etc. You can even read about why I did!
Before we get into today's post, I think it's important we briefly go over why Squarespace is the ultimate platform to be on.
My biggest thing, was that I'm constantly seeking simplicity. I hate things that require too much work, or better yet that requires me to spend too much time.
Have I convinced you to at least try it?!
Well maybe the fact that you can try the platform for free will help give you that little push. Yes, my friend! I definitely said FREE. No credit card needed to try this bad boy out. So just try it already; You have nothing to lose.
Creating an account
Creating an account is pretty easy. Just follow these next few steps and you'll be well on your way to your 14 day free trial. So let's go!
To create your account, go to the Squarespace website. You'll want to click the "GET STARTED" button on the left side of your screen (circled in red in the photo above). This button will redirect you to the template section of the website. On this page, you will find 28 different templates for you to choose from.
When you click on each design, it will give you a little description of each, as well as give you examples of what your website could look like once you customize that chosen template. You don't need to copy those websites because they are basically just there give you an idea of what you can really do when you customize your own.
Once you've chosen the template of your choice, you'll want to click the "START WITH THIS DESIGN" button on the top right side of your screen (beside the demo screen).
Once you've clicked that button, a popup will appear for you to create a new account. Fill in all the information it asks for: First name, last name, email and password.
When you're done filling that out, click on the "SIGN UP & CREATE SITE" button. This will bring you to your website editor, where you can completely customize your website the way you've always dreamed it to be.
