How to Create a Website in 5 Minutes or Less

Contrary to what some may think, creating a website doesn't have to be time consuming or difficult. It's actually very simple, provided you use the design platform that works best for you. Speaking from personal experience, I prefer Squarespace for a variety of reasons — which can actually be read about here. 

Squarespace is an all-in-one design and hosting platform that makes creating websites more about enjoying the experience and less about worrying whether you know how to code or not. And speaking of which, don't let the simple user interface fool you. Squarespace may appear basic, but it's actually capable at pulling off some very professional techniques. 

The setup process in building a website via Squarespace is incredibly quick. Requiring just a few minutes of your time, you'll be surprised at just how easy it really is. Of course, you're responsible for creating content that will populate your website, but getting the foundation in place is the part that's over before you know it. 

The video below walks you through everything you need to know, including how to choose a template and create your first blog post. Everything else is explained clearly on Squarespace's website, but I am happy to address any questions or concerns that you may have. You're always free to contact me here. 

If you do sign up with Squarespace, let me know and perhaps I'll showcase your website in a future video of mine!
