and I’m super passionate about website design and making YOUR business stand out!
My goal is to help women launch an aligned website for their business because I know how much value it will bring!
With a beautiful website that's designed to convert you will attract more clients and in turn bring in more reveneu. This will allow you to live life on your terms!
This is where you list out the most important links that are the most relevant to your clients to make it super easy for them to find what they are looking for.
You edit these links in your website “Header” settings on Squarespace
On your Top Navigation you want to add 5-6 links max! And I always recommend adding a button for your main CTA to really help direct your client to take the action you want them to take.
I have a post on how to add a button to your website if you want to learn how to do that here. I also get into what to think about when determining which links make the cut for the top navigation. So if you have been curious about that, give this blog a read!
First you want to log into the back end of your website and then click “Edit” on the top left, as always, when we are getting started with website edits.
And then when you hover your cursor over the top of your website the “Edit Site Header” option will pop up, as you can see in the image below.
As you can see, you have three different editing menus on the top right. You have the Global editing option, Desktop and Mobile options.
This is very important for SEO so make sure you use keywords here!
You can also upload your logo so that it shows up on your main navigation. You have the option to upload a separate logo for your mobile site if you choose to, if you do not upload anything there then your mobile site will use the same logo as your desktop version.
To learn more about adding and editing buttons on your main navigation on Squarespace I have an in depth blog post you can read here
Solid will give you one a solid colored background
Gradient will use the background image of your first section right below the header and gradually fade it out at the top
Theme will allow you to select from your pre determined color schemes
Dynamic will also use the background image from your first section but it will not fade out towards the top
This will allow you to create a “sticky” navigation that stays on the screen as the viewer scrolls down the page.
If you select basic the header will always show at the top if you select scroll back the header will not show when the viewer is scrolling down but will appear when the viewer starts to scroll up the page.
You have quite a few options here so feel free to play around until you find the one you love!
You can select whether you want the header to take up the entire width of the page or fit within the page by selecting either full or inset
You can also take it a step further and play with the vertical padding, element spacing, and link spacing to really personalize the navigation to fit your brand style
Vertical padding – use this to add or reduce space above or below the elements on your navigation
Element spacing – this will add or reduce space between the elements you have added and your links
Link spacing – this will add or reduce space between the links
Except now you have different styles to select from that are unique to the mobile view.
Here you can choose whether you want the links left justified, centered, or right justified.
You can also select a color from your color schemes
