Squarespace Online Training Courses with PixelHaze
We are delighted to announce that our Squarespace online courses will be launching in Spring 2019, with the aim to develop a comprehensive training course to bridge the gap between you and the steep learning curve when using website builders.
Demystifying website builders - breaking down the myth
Based on the TV commercials for all of the leading website builders, it all looks so easy. Once you have your business idea, simply sign up to your preferred online website building software, spend a couple of hours mastering this miraculous technology, and hey presto! Your new website is online in a jiffy, without you even needing to break a sweat! Reality, alas, is often a wholly different experience. In the last year alone, I have received such feedback from at least 15 new clients who have tried to build their own website and finally run out of steam or patience. The website builder experience it seems, works for the few and not the many.
Cards on the table, I have been using Squarespace as my website platform of choice for nearly four years and in the main, it has been ideal. The combination of a very powerful website that is easy to use in the right hands, with the fact that (like many competitors) the software can be overwhelming for beginners, has enabled me to carve out my very own niche in the web design industry. Squarespace is built with designers in mind, the templates are gorgeous with a wide range of baked-in features.
The results, however, can vary considerably depending on the user’s ability and experience. My key role is to bridge the gap between my clients and the barriers in place with website builders. I am now opening this services to a wider audience at a very competitive price.
Proactive training where you want it, when you want it
