Likelihood to Recommend

1ShoppingCart

It's really user preference. Some people have been told by other colleagues that it's a great system to use so they want to go with that. There are other systems that do exactly the same thing. I have not found that 1ShoppingCart has any unique features that would lead me to persuade a client to use it over another one. I usually have clients look at two or three options and give feedback. Sometimes it comes down to monthly prices.

Squarespace

Squarespace is great for a corporate presence website that relies on providing beautiful content. It also allows for nicely flowing landing pages that are easy to design and modify. The system is turn key and you need only to employ a designer and copywriter. No longer is a technical resource needed to fix broken plug-ins or troubleshoot issues during upgrades. Squarespace may not be suitable if you are in need of heavy customization of the .css or code.

Pros

  • Email broadcasts are super easy with 1ShoppingCart
  • Affiliate set up and management is easy
  • Easy to use - Their intuitive design and guided examples make it simple for anyone to use,
  • High quality templates - They provide high-quality templates that are made to work with a variety of devices and screen sizes without any extra work.
  • Integration - Squarespace easily integrates with other services like Mailchimp for email marketing.

Cons

  • The UI needs improvement. There are other systems out there that are more intuitive.
  • Customizing/branding a shopping cart page can be a little tricky - when it should be very simple.
  • Lack of customization options - while it's good for amateurs to be able to build a website easily, it would be nice if there were more customization options for pros.
  • Boring CTA button, without the option to change it - you just get what comes with your template.
  • Sensitive interface requires that you click in exactly the right spot (more so than usual, like in other platforms such as Hubspot).

Likelihood to Renew

Based on 2 answers
If I were in charge of the renewal decision I would really take a look at 1SC vs. Infusionsoft. There are many ways each are great and many ways they are different. I would look at what was best for my company and make the choice accordingly. I find that Infusionsoft has many more ways to intuitively market, segment and cultivate new leads and grow the business as a whole than 1SC currently has.

It's simple to use for someone who is really good with computers as well as those who are not. I've been using my personal squarespace for years and have also helped clients build a starting page which they are later able to manage theirselves.

Easy to find support on their website.

Alternatives Considered

Again, it's the client that usually selects the system they want to use. I think 1ShoppingCart has lower monthly payment options so that makes it more appealing. Infusionsoft has a $2k payment that must be made in order to use their product
I find Wix to truly be a blank slate. The templates offered can be modified to give you more control over the finished product but the downside to this is the added step of formatting for responsive viewing. It is often overlooked by clients who want to maintain their site once the design is complete and they become frustrated. That said, I wish there was more control over the responsive elements shown in Squarespace but as a trade off, I choose Squarespace.

Return on Investment

  • Faster lead conversion, definitely
  • The simplistic design that Squarespace offers has pleased our customers, which in turn keeps our customers happy with the ease of use of the site. It allows customers to return frequently without the fear of getting lost in the site.
