Squarespace

Squarespace is great if you're updating a client's site that they've made themselves using less-than-optimal software. I've used it for lots of small businesses and sole proprietors that know that their site is out of date and doesn't serve their needs any longer, but are not sure where to look for an alternative. Squarespace allows me as a designer to set up a functional and beautiful site quickly for my clients. If I'm dealing with an enterprise-level client that has more specific needs, Squarespace would not be my first choice since its customizability is limited (though well-suited for most small businesses).

Pros

  • Easy to create visually appealing designs using the gridded drag and drop and preset formatting options/ themes
  • Maintains consistent design elements across your whole site - which you can change at a high level with one click and automatically updates globally
  • Instantly updates content to your live site
  • Great photo slideshow options and quotation box features

Cons

  • The grid system can be limiting - even using the spacers, there are limited options when you lay out your website. Great for beginners, but not great if you want more complex designs
  • Really hard to add site-wide custom code, including analytics tracking for advertising campaigns (Linkedin, Facebook etc)
  • Design limitations on banners, blog posts, and other standardized functions

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

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.

Alternatives Considered

Squarespace is much better than other website builders because it is cleaner, more user-intuitive and advanced than other web page building sites. I used to use Wix and I really didn't like it at all. Wordpress can be too difficult to customize for someone who isn't too savvy on technology. Overall, I love Squarespace's simplicity and the ease of being able to adjust layouts and customize.

Return on Investment

  • I've been able to land clients that weren't sure about my design skills after they were able to check out my portfolio.
  • The cost is pretty low, so I easily make much more than I invest into the services provided.
