Our (Free!) Small Business Summer School Is Here!

Small Business

Drum roll please! We’re launching something new and a bit different today, and we want YOU to be a part of it!

The Design Files Small Business Summer School is our inspiring new 4-part video series, designed to give you the kick-start you need to launch your dream business or side hustle in 2021!

This series is powered by Squarespace – the website building platform we recommend for anyone starting a small business! Using Squarespace’s all-in-one platform you can buy a domain, build a great-looking website, and even market your brand online. In this series, we’ll show you how to get started – from goal setting, to launching your website, and growing your community and sales online.

Our Small Business Summer School is not an expensive or complicated online course. All the content is short and sharp, it’s FREE and lives right here on our website – simply tune in each week, watch the video and download the printable PDF , and most importantly – take action!

Our first lesson is aptly titled First Things First! Here, Small Business whizz and Squarespace user Fiona Killackey of My Daily Business Coach shares her top five tips for how to take that burning business idea that’s rattling around in your brain, and bring it to life! Watch the vid, download the worksheet, do your homework… (!)  and we’ll see you here this time next week for lesson #2!

Squarespace provides entrepreneurs and small business owners with the tools they need to bring their creative ideas to life, online.

Head to Squarespace.com for a free trial and when you’re ready to launch, use the offer code DESIGNFILES to save 10% off your first purchase of a website or domain.

Fiona Killackey works with business big and small. Here, she’s visiting one of her Melbourne small business clients – Ryan Klewer of Plant Charmer. Photos – Amelia Stanwix.
