It is advisable to create custom designs that call for specific programs and content without giving direct access to those programs. We still have to meet the proposed use case where it should not be used.

I have a gorgeous website that I made myself, thanks to Squarespace. I'm able to integrate marketing emails, SEO, analytics, online carts, pretty much instantly. If you want to get started fast, it's really great. I think if you want to customize square space and you're having trouble, it would be most helpful to hire a square space designer. That's what I would have done in retrospect.

Pros

Acoustic Content (formerly IBM Watson Content Hub)

  • It has a wide variety of built-in API calls.
  • Building unique pages is simple and straightforward and requires only basic fundamental knowledge to get started.
  • More advanced API calls can be developed simply.
Ben Williams | TrustRadius Reviewer

Squarespace

  • Stupid simple to use. I know very creative people who cannot code and this is probably the easiest ever platform for them!
  • Pretty website templates and great functionality with showing off portfolios.
  • They've already figured out what are the problems that non-coding people have when creating websites and they've figured out a simple solution for all of it.

Cons

Acoustic Content (formerly IBM Watson Content Hub)

  • It doesn't work well with our IBM systems and as you might expect, that seems to be a common problem with IBM products.
  • Application settings are bad and some items are easily accessible and can be buried in menus
Madusanka Balapitiya | TrustRadius Reviewer

Squarespace

  • As a wine company it would really love it if Squarespace had an easy plugin for wine club subscriptions.
  • Squarespace would be awesome if it could automatically take your photos that you upload on the site and optimize them for the web and for the website.
  • I do wish we could have more than two contributors for the basic website costs.

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.

Help is available directly from the back end and uses full sentence searching to find answers to questions others may have asked before. With a ton of articles and support questions documents, it is very likely that your question has been answered. If not each page has the ability to open a direct email to support. Each case has a number and can be followed. Responses are often quick and have links and directions clearly stated

Alternatives Considered

Acoustic Content (formerly IBM Watson Content Hub)

I haven't had experience outside of the IBM applications but can confirm that compared to other content tools provided by IBM, this is one of the more complete packages.
Ben Williams | TrustRadius Reviewer

Squarespace

Overall, as a designer, it makes perfect sense for small to large businesses to use a site such as SquareSpace. Costs are relatively reasonable with the ability to go in and do custom code.
The issue is certain aspects of it, depending on the plan, you can't do. So, if you want to do API to the site, you need to use the top-tier program to do so. Even at custom code, you won't have access to the API section.
As well, like all templates and themes, everybody is using the same style too.

Return on Investment

Acoustic Content (formerly IBM Watson Content Hub)

  • Approved developer is a simple tool for integrating other end-user applications.
  • It has allowed us to have one-stop-shop and easy-to-use debugging, saving time.
Madusanka Balapitiya | TrustRadius Reviewer

Squarespace

  • The key positive impact on my overall business objectives is how simple Squarespace sites are to implement new information. Whenever our services change, we can quickly update pages or even change how the website flows, in a very short window of time. This allows me to get back to more urgent work sooner.
  • Our Squarespace site for Club Swim Show helped present our web series to potential partners; Club Swim Show went on to partner with a popular swimming magazine and reach a larger audience through that magazine's hosting thanks to the professional design of our original website.
  • Squarespace does not bring in customers to my storefront, which is fine for me, since I sell things infrequently and it is not my main business, but might work against someone who is expecting a Shopify or Etsy level connection with buyer markets.
