Overall Satisfaction with Squarespace

We use our website to sell our products. We start off when we have a few products or want a simple, quick and beautiful website. The business problem it addresses is ugly websites. Squarespace makes everything really easy to make our company have a beautiful website for our customers. It also solves the problem of connecting our website to our amazon products. We use the amazon link button to import our products.
  • Squarespace provides beautiful websites.
  • The website is intuitive and easy to use. Some of my co-workers who have limited experience in building websites can figure out how to use it!
  • Squarespace does a great job at connecting our website to Amazon.
  • Squarespace can grow in ecommerce - it's hard to manage multiple products on squarespace.
  • Squarespace can grow in making their templates for customizable.
  • Squarespace can grow in making their navigation a little easier to navigate. Sometimes it takes me a while to find simple things like SEO.
  • Squarespace has had a positive ROI with our product launch. It's simple and clean, and people can navigate the website well.
  • Squarespace has also had a positive ROI by legitimizing our company - our website looks professional and our customers trust us.
  • Squarespace has had negative ROI as we grow our business and have more products - we end up switching platforms.
Squarespace is a great starter website, however once your business grows and you need your website more, I would switch over to Shopify. As mentioned before Squarespace makes it hard to manage multiple pages or products. It's easier than Shopify when you first start out, but eventually, most of our websites have switched over to Shopify.
Content Author / Administrator
Squarespace is well suited if you want to build a simple website for yourself or simple website fo your business. This is where Squarespace does well. Simple - meaning, a couple of key pages or a couple of key products. Where Squarespace is less suited is if you want to build a website with multiple pages or have 100s of products. It's not as easy to manage as say Shopify.
