Well suited for businesses with email and SMS lists who are advertising. Less suited for businesses that don't rely on heavy touchpoints with customers. We find most businesses would benefit from having this type of product but not sure for businesses that don't rely on marketing. We love it so far!

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.
Read full review Pros I have Integrated Klaviyo with my Website and with salesforce which works simultaneously. This integration is happened very easily as In klaviyo we have flows through which we can do automations and set webhook integration with no code activity. Klaviyo helps me to measure the success of email campaigns. Klaviyo helps me to automate the manual tasks with the helps Flows in it which is very easy to use as it has a very easy to understand user interface and no coding reuired. Read full review 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. Read full review Cons At times the platform isn't as intuitive as you would like. Take the time to be onboarded and play around in the platform to get the hang of things. Utilize Klaviyo's resources and attend their live training sessions to help navigate the platform and implement best practices they recommend. Can be pricey depending on company and email list. Customization is limited at times. The brand font we utilized on all branded content wasn't available through Klaviyo. Previously we would have to go through the back end to implement our branded font, import our font, or create content on another platform to utilize our font. Read full review 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. Read full review Likelihood to Renew
Klaviyo is simply a great solution for e-com email marketing & customer relationship management:
User journey visibility: We can see our clients' customers on their individual user journeys (open email, site visits) to better understand and accommodate your customers. Flow automation: Creating automated emails that follow up with new leads, those who abandoned carts, purchased. Email design: So easy to use, and more friendly than some other visual builders that we've used. Metrics visibility: We can see our clients' metrics very easily and adjust efforts accordingly.

Unless our website requires significantly more functionality in the future, I can't see us terminating our contract

The only reason why I did not give it a 10/10 is that it cannot distinguish purchases that came through subscription recharges instead of purchases that were driven directly by email sends. Other than that, the automation qualities, design features, and segmentation options make this an incredible email platform, and I am very happy with it

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.

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.

was used early in the business when we didn't have as many customers and weren't segmenting. We've used
for loyalty, reviews, and, most recently, SMS. We have yet to try Klaviyo reviews or SMS, but it would be nice to have all of these items in one suite

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.
Read full review Return on Investment ROI was over 300% Increased repeat sales by 33% Increase AOV on orders by targeting persons with historically high purchases Increase customer acquisition volume by converting email prospects into customers Increase customer retention by integrating test (SMS) messaging to many customers. The result was a higher response rate. Read full review 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.
