I found SquareStudio a few years ago, and I'm so glad I did. They're a team of developers who builds custom coded plug-ins that help you customize your Squarespace site. I use them for my site, and my clients' sites. In this video, I show you where I use their plug-ins, and I give you a tour of the site. Even though I have a developer on my team, getting custom coding done can be expensive. If you're new to blogging, or have a young business, buying a solution from SquareStudio could be a huge cost savings.
One of the most common ConvertKit questions I get is actually not even a difficult thing at all. I'm often asked about the difficulty level of integrating ConvertKit with Squarespace. It's completely true that, for Wordpress users, the process of integrating ConvertKit is a little bit more seamless. That's because of the CK plugin available to them. But that doesn't make it impossible for those of us on Squarespace! You can totally master it. Here's how:
Lately, I've surprised a few of my clients by telling them about this lesser-known ConvertKit feature. It's not for everyone, but it's definitely a nice feature that I think is underutilized. You can add your RSS feed to your ConvertKit account, and create broadcasts with the content of your latest blog posts. This would be great for you if: You're struggling to keep up with creating regular content. Sending one of your blog posts from the week might be a really great compromise.
Recently, I had a post get to page 1 in Google's search results. And because of that post, I've been fielding a lot of questions about Squarespace lately. So I'm tackling another one of those questions today. How to add a related posts field to the end of your blog posts. (At the time I'm writing this post, there are only 5 Squarespace templates that include a related posts section for blogs.)
A few months ago, I started seeing a lot of activity surrounding one blog post. All of a sudden - tons of blog comments. Emails, every week! And I even booked discovery calls from people who read the post. I found out, eventually, that the post had landed on page 1 search results in Google for search terms like "squarespace templates."
I'm really a believer in just getting things done.
I believe in jumping. With no excuses. I like to just get moving and test my ideas.
Marie Forleo says that clarity comes from engagement.
That means that the only way to know what will work, and how you can get better at something, is to START. Today.
The first time I tried to delete a tag from my Squarespace blog, I had a hard time finding where I could edit.
I knew that the main list of tags and categories was in my blog settings, but when I opened it I was stumped. I didn't see a delete button at first. (Total user error & I'll explain more about that in a minute!)
