In this video tutorial I show you how to create a free link-in-bio website using the Bio Sites from Squarespace.

We start by installing the Unfold mobile app (visit App Store or Google Play), adding profile details, integrating links, customizing the design and even adding a tip section for donations. Make sure you stick around until the end for several Bio Sites FAQs. Let’s get started!
