Use Squarespace.com to build a basic website for your subscription business
Your website should include three sections: About Me, My App, and Contact
You can also use Playbook’s Creator Services for custom website creation
There are many things you need in order to run a successful subscription business — content and marketing know-how, a sales funnel, a killer social media and email marketing strategy... the list goes on. While our team provides you with a sales landing page for your app, you also need a website that goes beyond just your sales page. Creating a website is not optional either: A reported 81% of shoppers conduct online research before making a purchase, and 84% of U.S. consumers believe a business with a website is more credible than one with just a social media presence.
You’re probably breaking into a cold sweat at the idea of creating your own website, but never fear! We’re going to walk you through how to create a basic website step-by-step using Squarespace.
At this point, you will select a plan and submit your payment credentials. After you’ve reviewed everything, set your site availability to “Public” and you’re live!
If you need further assistance, we recommend reviewing Squarespace’s in-depth written guide, How to Build a Website, or this Squarespace video tutorial for beginners.
The point of creating a website is to go beyond just your sales page and give potential subscribers more information about you and your app. You’re more likely to convert followers to subscribers when they understand exactly what they’re getting with their subscription, and you can answer those common questions with your website copy. At the very least, your website should include three sections: “About,” “My App,” and “Contact.”
Additionally, you should include at least three “Start today for $1” CTA buttons throughout your website that link to your sales page. We recommend including one such button on each of the following pages:
This page should include a brief summary of your background, including any credentials and accomplishments.

Share what users can expect to gain from using your app and any training requirements. In addition to the CTA button, hyperlink any references of “my app” or “my workouts” to your sales page URL for potential users to subscribe to your app.
