In today's world, you can hire a developer to build your website from the ground up or you can purchase a template that gives you the ability to customize your own professional website. No matter what route you choose, having a website that is unique and true to your brand is key. It's important to stand out from the crowd in a cluster of people doing something similar to you.
Lately, I've noticed on quite a few websites I visit, that a gray 3-dimensional cube is hanging out in the website tab.
This is called a favicon. When I see this cube, I instantly think "I wish I had stock in Squarespace." Squarespace is shutting down the website game lately. They make it extremely easy for you to build an online presence at an affordable price. While I respect their hustle and think that the gray cube is a great form of advertisement, there is an easy way you can personalize your Squarespace favicon.
Step 1: Log into your Squarespace account and then click on the design link.
Step 2: Choose Logo & Title.
Step 3: Scroll down to Browser Icon (Favicon) and click on the white box to upload your custom logo
Here are a few uploading tips to render the best quality:
- Keep image dimensions between 100 px x 100 px and 300 px x 300px.
- The recommended file types are .ico or .png. I use .png because I'm not as familiar with .ico.
- File size cannot exceed 100 kb.
Step 4: Once you've uploaded your logo, refresh your screen and voila! You have a branded favicon. Congrats, you're one of a kind.
