If you need a tool to manage a website, this is a good place to start. If you aren't ready for something of this caliber it might not be meant for your business. It's a stepping stone and you need to be ready to learn and it may require a bit more attention.

Squarespace

If you've started up a business and the idea of learning how to build a website and/or hiring a designer is just out of the question for you...this is your solution. You can easily have a beautiful website up and running in just a day or two using Squarespace and it isn't horrifically frustrating like other website templates or software can be. The only downside is that your SEO doesn't seemed to get picked up by crawlers as easily as other solutions and you cannot create your own code to add to Squarespace for other things you'd like to track. Other than that, this is a very easy platform to use and you can easily have a very professional and beautiful site up in just a day or two and your membership pays for all those other things that you don't want to look up that you need to purchase when buying a domain etc... It's a great solution for the non-tech business owner who just wants something up and running quickly.

Pros

AspDotNetStorefront

  • Tons of reporting tools
  • Easy to navigate
  • Multiple user profiles
Donovan Farmer | TrustRadius Reviewer

Squarespace

  • Squarespace is very easy to use, this is a super helpful thing as small business owners we have to wear many hats and being a full blown website developer doesn't need to be one of them.
  • Squarespace has quick and simple plugins.
  • Squarespace allows you to easily expand as you need to.
Megan Murray | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

AspDotNetStorefront

  • Not everyone can navigate easily without training
  • Some reports can be fairly large and take lots of time to download
Donovan Farmer | TrustRadius Reviewer

Squarespace

  • It takes practice to get used to the editing flow for setting up pages in Squarespace: you need to both use an on-page "Page Content" tab to edit most aspects but also use a gear icon on the left-hand sidebar to finish setting up the pages with SEO, social image and metadata style descriptions.
  • Because so much of your website is created through drag and drop, it can be frustrating at times when items do not move as precisely as you need. I end up having to resize columns after laying out the whole page from time to time.
  • I pay for a domain through Squarespace because it keeps it simple, but the pricing is not ideal, especially if you need more than one domain. If you are bringing your own domain names, there is extra work, but it does work.

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

AspDotNetStorefront

More customization and ability to work with web designers make it an easy tool to manage projects and promote growth of your store front. It may not be as user friendly as others but it has more flexibility by far.
Donovan Farmer | 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

AspDotNetStorefront

  • Easy to use customer service tools
  • Invaluable reporting abilities
  • Tier users makes it easy to manage employees
Donovan Farmer | TrustRadius Reviewer

Squarespace

  • Squarespace enabled us to control the brand experience with our most loyal customers more effectively than driving them to listings on 3rd party marketplaces. We're able to offer customers discounts and offers that we didn't have before.
  • We're generating 30% more sales now from organic search than when we were a marketplace-only seller.
  • Outreach from brands in our industry has increased now that we have our own professional web presence. We have several sponsorships and other relationships that came to us as a result of our website and blog.
