Meet Nancy

Nancy was a creative entrepreneur who was looking to leave her law degree behind and make money online. She took my DIY a Squarespace website course first and loved designing her website so much that she decided to go out and become a designer!

“This course is reasonably priced and jam packed with information on how you can DIY your own site…OR if you already have a site, how to make updates and how to incorporate custom coding. I already had a website, but I wanted to change it up on my own and was able to by taking this course. With Rebekah’s knowledge I was able to start my own website design company! This is great for the beginner who doesn’t have thousands to spend on a designer… Squarespace is such an easy platform to use…”

How to design a website

Are you eager to start your own website design business, but feeling completely overwhelmed because you have no idea how to design a website? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. Many new entrepreneurs, copywriters, and small business owners find themselves in the same boat, unsure of where to even begin. But fear not, my friend, because I’m here to help you navigate through this seemingly daunting process.

When it comes to website design, it’s important to remember that it’s not about being a coding genius or having an extensive knowledge of all the technical components and elements. In fact, you don’t need to be a tech wizard at all.

Thanks to the abundance of streamlined templates and user-friendly tools available, creating a stunning website can be manageable even for those with zero design experience. Yes, you read that right. In just a matter of minutes, you can have a visually appealing website up and running, without the need for any coding skills or extensive lists of HTML and CSS codes. SQUARESPACE MAKES THAT SO EASY!

Now, I know what you’re thinking. How is this possible? It sounds too good to be true, right? Well, let me assure you, it’s not. With the help of:

✓ intuitive website builders (ahem Squarespace and Showit)

✓ pre-designed templates

✓ or a course that teaches you how to design a website

the process of creating a website has become easier than ever before.

The advantage of taking a course over purchasing a template

Step-by-step instructions is the main advantage. It makes the entire journey much more streamlined. In my Squarespace DIY course, you can have your website up & running  IN 30 DAYS OR LESS, even if you’ve never designed a website before.

What about becoming a web designer?

That’s when having tools (and honestly another course to guide you) comes in handy.

My friend Paige Brunton created a course, Square Secrets Business™ as your complete blueprint to building a successful website design business. This course adds to your knowledge of designing websites (and if you don’t know how to design websites my DIY a Squarespace Website Course can help) and teaches you everything you need to know to take you from thinking about becoming a designer, to actually working with clients and making that dream your full-time reality.

Square Secrets Business™ is the 6-module, self-paced course with 12+ hours of video lessons designed to help you build a successful business as a web designer.

The course covers how to land clients via allll the possible mediums, how to legally set up your business, how to prepare for taxes, how to manage client partnerships… the list *quite literally* goes on and on. 

What you will walk away with:

  • A core understanding of business strategy.
  • The confidence to actually claim the title “website designer” and earn an income from it
  • The ability to become booked out for months at a time – without stressing where your next client is coming from
  • Start charging premium prices (upwards of $5K a project)… without doing so arbitrarily or questioning yourself
  • Understand how to attract clients who value your skillset
  • Create a strategic marketing plan that doesn’t take over your life or end up with you just scrolling Pinterest for hours
  • Know how to create streamlined systems & processes that allow you to show up as a true professional… AND get your projects done by the deadlines
  • All of this is within reach for you!

Square Secrets Business ™ has successfully seen over one thousand students participate and change the course of their lives, just because they had the courage to invest in themselves.
