How to easily create branded short links on Squarespace for free

Tired of forgetting your affiliate links?

Want to send your fans to a specific page but hate how long the URL is?

Have a broken link on your website you need to redirect?

Want branded short links without paying for a premium level bit.ly account?

You can do all of these things (and more!) on Squarespace for free.

That’s right!

The ability to redirect your readers anywhere you want is built in to your Squarespace website by default - it’s called URL Mapping.

If you’ve heard of URL Mapping, it was probably when you migrated to Squarespace from another platform and needed to ensure your blog post links were getting redirected correctly.

But have you touched it since then? If not, you are missing out on a powerful tool.

One example of how you can use URL Mapping is to send people to a shorter affiliate link.

For example, MeganMinns.com/ConvertKit will redirect you to my ConvertKit affiliate link. Way easier than telling you to go http://mbsy.co/convertkit/19947725 right?

Watch the video below to learn more about the benefits of creating a branded short link and how to do it within your Squarespace site!

How to Connect ConvertKit to a Squarespace Button or Cover Page (With Step-By-Step Video Trainings!)

How to Connect ConvertKit to a Squarespace Button or Cover Page (With Step-By-Step Video Trainings!)

While ConvertKit makes it super simple to add a ConvertKit form to a Squarespace page, there may be situations where you want a Squarespace button to link to an opt-in instead.

Especially on Squarespace cover pages where you can’t add a ConvertKit form! 

So I created two video tutorials showing you exactly how to connect ConvertKit to Squarespace buttons! 

How to connect ConvertKit to Squarespace Buttons/Forms:

In order to connect ConvertKit to a Squarespace "button" you'll actually be using a Form Block instead of a Button Block. You'll also be using Google Sheets and Zapier to connect Squarespace and ConvertKit.

The Best Squarespace Templates (and what you need to do before you switch templates!)

The Best Squarespace Templates (and what you need to do before you switch templates!)

It's no secret that I'm a huge Squarespace fan. But picking the right template can be a little overwhelming at first.

Squarespace has so many beautiful templates that it can take a lot of time to really investigate all of them.

There are several templates labeled as a certain "type" of website that are more versatile than they appear. Which means you need test out a template to even see its full potential.

But this takes time.

It can overwhelm you.

And it can lead to analysis paralysis.

Which I try to avoid at all costs.

So instead of comparing every Squarespace template, I'm going to save you time by laying out the 3 best templates for entrepreneurs.

Set Up Your Landing Page in 5 Minutes (Simple and Stress-Free!)

Set Up Your Landing Page in 5 Minutes (Simple and Stress-Free!)

I have a feeling you're waiting to start something.

Waiting to start a blog or website...

Waiting to start working on a new course or product...

Waiting to put yourself out there...

And its probably because you don't know where to start.

I feel you!

That's why I wanted to show you the ONE thing you can do in less than 5 minutes (no really) that will allow you to just get started: Setting up a landing page.

This week I did two live workshops with Mariah Coz of Femtrepreneur.co, where we walked over 2000 people through setting up a landing page. A hands-on tech training.

And we got incredible feedback! People were actually creating their landing pages with us live!

It made me realize that so many of you are in a situation where you could benefit from this too!

So I've created a full hands-on step-by-step tutorial of how to create a landing page using Squarespace... and the entire video is only 3 minutes and 20 seconds long.

No lie.

But I took it one (or three!) steps further...

I also created 3 follow up tech trainings on how to connect YOUR email platform to the buttons on a Squarespace landing page:

  1. Mailchimp
  2. ConvertKit
  3. Leadboxes

So no matter what platform you're using, you can use this to get your landing page up in just a matter of minutes!

I get questions every day about the functionality of a Squarespace website:

"Can I use LeadPages with Squarespace?"

"Can I host webinars with Squarespace?"

"Can I optimize my SEO with Squarespace?"
 

So I've compiled the 7 questions I get asked the most and answered them all here!
