Are you dealing with the website blues?
I hear the stories from clients when they first come to me, that twinge of shame when someone asks for your website link, or the frustration of tweaking your site through trial and error, and still not coming out with the right vision.
I'm a firm believe that you should be IN LOVE with your website and branding, and that's why I do what I do.
It's been nearly a year since I made the big leap from Wordpress to Squarespace, and my business has thanked me for it. Here are a couple of reasons why Squarespace is AWESOME for luxe brands!
If you’ve ever had a Wordpress site, you know that you constantly have to update plugins, themes & software to prevent a crash.
I was always worried about updating a plugin and crashing my whole site, or using a plugin that might bring a virus into my site.
With Squarespace, there are NO UPDATES to worry about, they take care of it! I went from spending about an hour a week in maintenance on my Wordpress site, to ZERO time on maintenance, this is one of the best things about Squarespace!
My Wordpress site had extremely slow page loading time, this hurts SEO! This tends to happen when you are paying under $10 per month for hosting. When I started to look into premium Wordpress hosting, the price was much more expensive than Squarespace, that was the final straw that made me switch. Now my site loads quickly, and I have Squarespace's 24/7 support team has my back, so they jump on any issues before I even know about them!
As a designer, typography is SO IMPORTANT. The right fonts can make or break your design. One of the things that drew me to Squarespace were the amazing variety of fonts available right out of the box. Some fonts like "Brandon Grotesque" and "Proxima Nova" are VERY expensive to purchase on your own, and I used to get so much website envy seeing those fonts on Squarespace Sites!
All of the fonts and colors on your site are easily editable in Squarespace's style editor, which is another reason why I love the platform.
This might be my favorite feature on Squarespace, because it's so dang easy to use! A cover page is basically a landing page template (think LeadPages) that you can setup and customize very easily. I use them to put up a quick freebie sign up page, or to create a "Thank You" page after people sign up. Cover pages are also great for "Coming Soon" pages while your site is under construction.
These are just a few of the reasons why Squarespace is such an amazing platform for luxe brands. That's why I created a course to show you the ins and outs of Squarespace, as I build an actual client website step-by-step.
My course, Toastworthy Websites not only includes 6 modules starting with the branding, logo and moodboard going all the way through the site-building process. You also get access to my exclusive Facebook group only for course members.
I also throw in a BONUS module, that will teach you how to link your Mailchimp with your cover pages, design your freebie and your emails, so that the entire subscriber process is on-brand and professional! That Flawless Automation Masterclass typically sells for $49 on my site.
When you put it all together, my masterclass is like getting the full DIY version of my done-for-you Luxe Branding & Website Experience, which is worth $3800!
For a limited time, you can get my Toastworthy Websites Course for only:
Imagine having a beautiful brand and website of your own before the Summer is over. You can do it, and I can help!
