GENERAL INFO


What platfrom are your website themes on?

We have themes for Squarespace, and Showit.

Which website platform is best for me?

Great question. Squarespace is best if you want to blog or you have a shop. Showit is best if you want a really unique layout and wow factor for your service based business.

Can I build a website on my own using your themes?

Absolutely—We believe in you owning your brand. If you want to tackle it on your own, go for it! We sell website designs and other goodies that you can use right out of the box, or tweak to your heart's content until it’s exactly what you want, perfect for you DIY folks. Of course, if you want a little more designer expertise, we also have three strategies for working with a designer directly. Check out our Workshop, Restyle, and TKO services.

Can I hire you to create my website?

Yes! We can tailor one of our website themes for you or create a completely custom website.

How can I join your design team?

All the designers are hand selected by the Owner Promise Tangeman-Wurzell. Apply if you would like to be considered to be a part of the team when a position opens up.

THE SHOP


What is your refund policy?

Because of the digital nature of our products, they cannot be returned and are therefore, non-refundable. Please email us if you have any specific questions about this before you make a purchase: hello@golivehq.co

How often do you release new themes?

Every 6 months or so.

Can I add a shop to my website theme?

Yes! Squarespace has e-commerce built into their webdesigning platform. With Showit you will need to integrate a third party shopping cart.

Do I need to purchase anything additional?

Yes! If you are creating a site on Squarespace, then you will need a Squarespace account (plans starting at $8 per month). If you purchase our Showit themes then you will need to create an account with Showit (plans starting at $19 per month).

Is it possible to change fonts?

All the fonts that are used in our templates are free Google fonts. A few templates have specialty fonts with instructions on how to download and use those fonts. If you'd like to update the fonts in a template, it's easy to do so with google fonts or Type Kit.

Do I need to know code?

Nope! We worked really hard to make these themes as user-friendly as possible. Each design comes with step-by-step instructions to create the design.

What do I get after purchase?

Within minutes of purchase, you will receive an email with instructions for how to get started.

I'm not a "techie" person, is that a problem?

No way! We've designed these to be user friendly for the average person--our tutorials use normal language (no techie lingo here) and we've found that most people can finish the setup within hours.

Can I use my own logo?

Absolutely--We want your website to represent your brand! All the designs are built so that you can insert your existing logo or customize the remade logos that we created for you in your download.

Can I customize the designs?

The designs can be used as-is or you can customize further to make something even more unique to you. Feel free to experiment and get weird!

What if I need help setting it up?

The designs are created for you to “DIY” on your own, but we’re happy to help you if you need a little extra support! Check our Workshop, Restyle, and TKO for more deets.

Do I need photoshop?

Some of the graphics used in the Squarespace designs are in .psd format, meaning you will need Photoshop or Photoshop elements to edit them. You can download a free trial of Photoshop HERE.

 

WORKSHOP


What is the benefit of attending the workshop?

Sometimes traditional design processes can drag out taking a long time to complete because of missing content, loose deadlines, busy schedules, late revision feedback, and just life getting in the way. With a trip and 2 days booked on the calendar, it's guaranteed that you will get this website LIVE. Also, working one-on-one in person (with a margarita in hand) is so much more efficient than working over email. Our designers can work and ask "do you like this?" and get immediate feedback…making the process light-speed. We can't say enough about the benefits.

How many workshops have you done?

We've had 16 workshops and over 240 attendees total.

What platform do you build the websites on?

We have workshops teaching the Squarespace platform as well as the Showit platform.

Do I need to have a logo before I come?

YES! If you would like a formal logo/process before you get to the workshop, we have designers available for this service as an add-on fee. You can sign up for this add-on upon registration and we will get you connected with our designers.

Will there be future workshops?

Of course. But the dates and locations have not been released yet. Sign up for the newsletter (at the bottom of this site) to be the first to hear about new dates and events.

Are there incentives for referring my friends?

YES! You will receive $100 off of your registration if your friend registers and attends the same workshop as you. The discount will be taken off of your final payment. Only one discount per 2 people. Email us: hello@golivehq.co.

What do I need to bring to the workshop?

Laptop (preferably Mac), completed homework, logo, (and any textures, colors, etc.), 20-30 portfolio images, and your domain name login info.

Do I have to do the homework before I come?

YES! If you don't come prepared, it will prevent you from going live at the workshop. This is serious business!

Can I get a roommate to save on hotel costs?

YES! We'll put everyone in a Facebook group so you can start to get to know your fellow attendees & find roommates prior to attending the workshop.

Should I attend this?

HA! YES! This workshop is our whole team's favorite design service. We recommend this over our other processes! It's fun, focused, hands on, and you learn a lot.

What is Showit and how does it work with Go Live?
