I am very excited to be sharing all the different ways you can use the Squarespace Image blocks. Squarespace has just added a variety of different ways to use the Image block and I am super excited, it's actually made my job as a designer easier!!
So in this blog post, I will be showing you the different types and how you can change the way that they look to match your brand.
When you are an online business owner, taking a break can seem completely impossible. I get it! You are everything inside your business, so taking time off literally means your business comes to a halt while you are resting - especially when you are starting out or if you don't have a team. When your business is your main or only source of income it really isn't an option to stop and sip the mojitos.
I feel like this constantly, but I also know that traveling and taking semi regular breaks is important. At the moment, I take a big (like four weeks off) trip every one and half to two years and then two or three smaller weekend away trips each year and this seems to be keeping me sane! It's important that you listen to your body and know in yourself when you need a little break. For me, taking a break is vital and actually serves to inspire new ideas and renewed energy for my business.
But, as I said, going off the grid is not really possible when you are running your own show. So how do you make working work while on vacation?
I am very excited to have Britt Hyatt from Home Sweet Hyatt Studios on the blog this week talking about Squarespace SEO myths and how to optimize your website for SEO so that you are getting as much attention for your website as possible!
I will let Britt dive in, but just in case you don't know what SEO is, it stands for Search Engine Optimization and this essentially measures how easily your website or blog will be found on search engines like Google and Pinterest.
Many of you would know that I am a big fan of Squarespace, well so is Britt and she really helps us in this post to dispel the myths surrounding Squarespace when it comes to SEO. Some say that Squarespace puts you at a disadvantage with SEO but as you're about to see, that's simply not the case!
So I'll hand over to Britt and don't forget to download the freebie for this post: Squarespace SEO Keywords - it will make all the words and phrases we use make sense!
I know that it can feel painful to invest in training programs and ecourses, especially when you are just starting out and cash flow might be low or you might not know who to trust with your hard earned dollars and your precious time. It can be scary and sometime you really don't know what you need to learn first or what strategy will actually help you to achieve your goals. And in many cases there's a multitude of people telling you to do this or that and it's just overwhelming right?
You start to think that just grabbing free courses would be a good idea, or perhaps don't even worry about that and spend your time surfing the web in search for blogs that answer your questions and give you clues as to what to do next.
If you haven't heard of a vision board, you are missing out on something that's not only super fun to make but also something that will help you to stay grounded and focused!
A vision board is a tool that you can use to help clarify, concentrate and maintain focus on specific life goals. A vision board is any sort of board or arrangement of images, quotes and visual ideas, that represents whatever you want to be, do or have in your life. Essentially keeping a vision board close by gives you laser focus when it comes to what you want to create in your life.
As girlpreneurs in the digital age, we are constantly faced with the understanding that creating content and providing value is only half the journey to achieving girl boss superstardom. It’s a ton of work to create a new piece of content. There’s the research, writing, editing, optimizing, publishing, and promoting. Not to mention the moments when you really need to get a blog post out and you get haunted by the plague of the blinking cursor instead. You know exactly what I’m talking about. Sometimes the mere thought of planning your content calendar for the month can feel like you’re David facing Goliath. We stop, look towards heaven, and hope there’s an easier, less tedious way to figure all this out! I know exactly what you mean, girlfriend. Nowadays, we have to get as many eyes on our brand as we can, and valuable content is our means of doing so. It’s so important for people to find our beautifully written posts, value rich courses, and amazingly useful opt-ins. But it’s not a walk in the park to create all that magical content from scratch. While the thought of it seems like an impossible feat, there is an easier way to do this. No, like seriously. There is, and I’m going to tell you how.
So what’s the big secret, Krystal? Drum roll please... The answer is content repurposing! The the hottest thing since sliced bread and honey let me tell you, it makes this whole “getting more eyes on your content” thing so much easier to do. Creating content in multiple forms has never been as important to the content sharing culture than it is now. There are a ton of bonuses to creating your content in multiple forms.
