Meet your personal Squarespace trainer!

Julia Squarespace Authorized Trainer Magnetic Designs.png

Hi! My name is Julia and I am the owner of Magnetic Designs. I have been using the Squarespace platform for over four years, and I absolutely love it! I am so excited to share with you all of the amazing things that the Squarespace platform allows you to do without the need to hire someone or use markup language such as CSS or HTML. I believe Squarespace is the most innovative, intuitive, and attractive website platform available today. It is perfect for individuals or small businesses who need to be maintaining their websites on a regular basis. After spending years teaching people how to use Squarespace I became an official Squarespace Authorized Trainer in September 2017. Sharing this valuable skill with others is one of my favorite things to do, and I cannot wait to teach you too! If you have any questions about training or any of the other services I offer through Magnetic Designs, don't hesitate to reach out either from the Contact page or by emailing me: julia@magneticdesigns.org.

No, these trainings do not cover any custom development using markup language.

Can I bring someone with me to the 1-on-1 training?
