Overall Satisfaction with Squarespace

I use Squarespace to host and build my personal website for graphic design work. The software is great because I know basic coding, but I am not in the field of creating websites from scratch. Squarespace has allowed me to build a custom website based on my preferences with great UX/UI. I have NEVER had an issue with website failure or malfunction. A full-blown website update and relaunch took just two days for me to complete, where others would take months or more. I don't need to hire a web developer. I can use my own photographs or stock imagery Squarespace provides users with. They also offer you website templates and sample sites so you can see how others have used the templates with their own spins to create unique, customized webpages.
  • UX/UI design and functionality
  • Excellent web support and service
  • Customized webpages made easy
  • Low cost
  • SEO suggestions
  • Email newsletter with web tips and software updates
  • Referral incentive
  • Great looking design - perfect for design portfolio website
  • Better visibility on search engines
  • Easy to navigate, update, and add - saves me time and money!
So much more functionality than Wix, Weebly, and Unbounce. It is so easy to make small customizations that simply are not possible with the former. WordPress does provide endless possibilities to customize the page–beyond what Squarespace offers. However, I am not skilled in web design enough to take advantage of WordPress and utilize it to its full potential without a developer.
