Meet your instructor.
Hey there, Rebekah here. Founder of Simplified Campaigns and instructor for the Build Your Own Campaign Website course. I've been in and around graphics and design for years and as the digital world has advanced it has become necessary to bring political campaigns online. Hence, I self-taught myself how to build political campaign websites for my candidates. I needed an easy platform to do this and that's what I found in Squarespace. A website is your largest billboard and doesn't have to have a ton of bells and whistles - it just needs to look professional, function well, and be easy to launch and update. We'll learn how to do all those things in this course. I look forward to helping you build your own website!

+ Will I be able to connect Squarespace with my email provider?
It depends on a couple of things. First who your email provider is. MailChimp integrates natively with SquareSpace however this requires you purchase the buisness plan instead of the personal plan. Other email providers can connect but will require the Squarespace upgrade.
If you do not want to upgrade, this course will show you a workaround. This workaround will require more hands-on and some manual re-entry of information BUT if you don't anticipate a high-volume of sign-ups this option is worth it to save a few $.
