Ok so you have a Squarespace website that you built yourself, you may have got some help from your tech friend too, which is great, but have you completed all the essential areas, mainly in the backend of your site that will help your website look extra professional, work faster and harder for you once you go live?
As a Squarespace circle member and a professional digital designer whose website is on the Squarespace platform, I highly recommend the platform to any small business owner, more about that in this post - 10 Reasons Why Squarespace Is Best For Your Business.
But for now, I wanted to share my top 10 MUST DO things during the setup of a Squarespace website. You could say this is my “checklist of things to do” before going live LIVE....
For ages, I didn't see this as a priority for my small business. That coupled with not knowing what the benefits of an email list are meant I was missing out on some major business opportunities!
Then one day I decided to set up an email list. I mean, I wasn’t losing anything, if anything I was gaining many things… I just didn't know what.
That is why today I want to share my thoughts and tips on why you should grow an email list for your small business, especially as I’ve learnt the benefits first hand!
It’s funny how clients become clients. If you follow me on instagram you may have noticed I took it upon myself to learn how to use a sewing machine earlier this year.
I started off by taking a short 4 week course and before I knew it, I was hooked! I can’t say I was surprised, it was a pleasure to spend one evening in the week with a group of friendly ladies, away from my iMac and doing something different.
It was within this easy going atmosphere and great learning environment that I met Julie, the lovely lady behind the already established business and brand, Escape & Create.
Let’s be honest. Running a business is not always hunky-dory. There are good days, great days and then there are those days when you just don’t want to even turn your iMac (or PC) on, let alone respond to clients, especially when they are unhappy….
In this post, I wanted to cover how to deal with unhappy clients and 3 proven tips that turn unhappy clients into happy ones!
I’ve been thinking about writing this post for a while, but I couldn’t settle on the title of the post.
There are lots of people out there that run their own business, plus there are a number of individuals that are starting a “side-hustle” or are already on that road.
But what about the people, like me, who work part-time, run their own business, part-time, and are hands-on-parents. Where are they? Do they exist? Or am I on a crazy train on my own?
In this post, I wanted to share the reasons behind what I do, why I do it and how I balance it all to make it work for me and my family-business-work life.
