    A couple of people I chatted to on Wednesday asked about hints & tips for a couple of topics:

    * SEO on Squarespace - site structure and writing copy that appeals to both Google and (more importantly) your site visitors.

    * Analytics - Understanding what Google Analytics data is telling you, and some tweaks to boost the quality of analytics data (conversion tracking & giving some insight to 'Not provided' keyword data). * User Experience - Designing sites that appeal to their users and increasing the chances of business conversion. If anyone's interested, I could host a Google+ Hangout or a Skype teleconference to go through the topics above, plus other stuff related to User Experience / Interaction design.

    For more detailed / personal consultancy I would charge a fee, but a Google+/Skype teleconference would be free.

      I'm starting to put something together. However, I'm off on holiday next Wednesday for 3 weeks, so the sessions might not take place until late August/early September.

    Nice meetup with great people, be interesting to see if would benefit from some screens or ipads/wifi to view peoples sites and distribution of a hashtag for continuing the discussion after but all minor points.

    For all those I didn't manage to chat to. (which was a few, rather busy night) I thought I would introduce myself here.

    I run a commercial photographic and video company in London. We produce advertising images, editorials, TV adverts and even headshots.

    We are a fully formed production company and have all the solutions you need to get your branding and marketing images from concept to completion.

    Drop by for some more information. I am thinking of putting together a sweet little Squarespace discount too, so feel free to ask me more about that ;)

    Here is to the next meetup.

    London: Thanks very much for joining me last night. What a great group of people! I really appreciate all the feedback you gave me, and I'll be taking it back to the team in New York. Don't tell any other city, but you've been my favorite! I encourage you to post your Squarespace URL here so we can explore your sites. Also, anyone looking for some design or dev help, feel free to post here. We had many folks in the room who offer those services. Cheers - I look forward to the next one!

    Squarespace certainly attracts a bunch of interesting people: a commercial film producer, an architect, a spinal implant specialist, a musician, an artist, a psychotherapist, and yes, a Squarespace developer. Great evening, thanks Jessica, thanks Squarespace!

  • Jessica K.

    Everyone: Start time is 6:30pm as noted in the invite. Sorry for the time zone confusion. Meetup won't allow us to have varying timezones on these events (quite frustrating!). See you tomorrow!

    July 2, 2013

    • Henry S.

      I always love the confusion caused by GMT, which is not actually the current time in the UK.....

    July 2, 2013

    • Colin I.

      Hi - It is in Covent Garden but it's equidistant from both Covent Garden and Leicester Square tubes.

      July 3, 2013

  • Colin I.

    Random thought... are we really going to get kicked out and sent home at 8:30? Or will anyone be sticking around longer? :p

    July 2, 2013

      Apologies! As you can see we have many folks on the waiting list.

    apologies for the grammar and spelling errors, just fin work and kinda tired. #JustBeingReal

  • Dani R.

    Off topic, but on topic (sort of)

    I run my site trough advanced DNS for my domain. Today it stopped working as Squarespace changed the IP address. (from .57 to .61)

    Happened at midninght EST, so 5AM our time. Not sure why we were not alerted to this so we could prepare, but check in on your sites incase you have the same...

    July 2, 2013

    • Dani R.

      yeah, got some replies out of the support team (who are awesome as usual) and it doesn't look planned.

      July 2, 2013

    • Dani R.

      I have been smart now and subscribed to the RSS of the System status page. Hopefully will keep me on top of things. These things scare me when they go wrong, haha

    It sounds interesting. It would be great to network but also speak about video plugins in the Squarespace templates. There are many websites offering similar services but not many doing good platforms for filmmakers. I am happy with Squarepace so far, using it on my personal and production company websites. Let me know if it is going to happen :) B.

    July 1, 2013

  • Tim N.

    Hope i can make it off the waiting list. I'm working on a Squarespace site for a client but i have no HTML and i think we need some help. Get in touch with me if interested in knowing more. Thanks.

    Looking forward to it
