How to Create Your Own Website is subject of BDCC workshop, Feb 7

-A A +A

A workshop sponsored by the Brattleboro Development Credit Corporation’s INSTIG8 program will teach small businesses and nonprofits how to build their own websites using Squarespace. The workshop will be held from 4:00 to 6:00 pm at the BDCC office at the Cotton Mill on February 7.

The workshop will be taught by Bob Lawson, founder of Sustainable Digital, a Putney-based company specializing in web design.

With the advent of new web tools, such as Squarespace, the job of developing and maintaining a website can now often be handled by people without technical training.

In this workshop, Bob Lawson will present a live demonstration of how to create a simple website from the ground up using Squarespace’s templates and easy editor.

The website basics you’ll learn will include:

  • How to select a template
  • How to organize the site and its menu
  • Using “Blocks” to layout pages
  • Building a photo gallery
  • Adding forms and other special features.

About the Instructor: Bob develops websites and provides other digital communication and technology services from his office in Putney, VT. In addition to websites, he helps both nonprofits and for-profits develop and implement their communications strategy.
