Creating a Squarespace Account + Selecting Your Template


To start installing your template, we'll begin by creating an account at Squarespace. 

  • First, go to and click Create a Site
  • After signing up, you'll have a free 14 day trial period before you need to upgrade. We'll chat about upgrading your site in a later video.
  • Next, you'll select the template that you'll be using for your site. The template serves as the foundation for the custom template that you'll be building. Refer to the Start Here PDF you received upon purchase to see which template you should choose at this point. 
  • Once you’ve picked your template, you’ll be asked a few questions about your new site such as your site name and description. Answer each question and click "next" until you've answered all of the questions. 

And that's it! You're officially all set up with your Squarespace account. Once you've finished watching this video, you should have your account created and your template picked out. 

In the next tutorial, we'll take a look a deeper look the Squarespace interface.
