Overall Satisfaction with Squarespace

Squarespace has helped me create a beautiful website to help drive my business. Most of my business has come from people online and interacting with my website. It is a lot more cost effective than hiring someone to build a website for us and it allows me control over all aspects of the website. I can customize and redesign whenever I want!
  • Ability to create your own domain, your own email, and an ad free website all in one place.
  • Many different layouts to choose from that are able to serve various different needs and services.
  • The analytics are awesome and really help me understand what people are interacting with on my website.
  • They offer a google AdWords credit for signing up.
  • Some layouts are difficult to customize.
  • The design process is a little clunky at times and takes some getting used to.
  • It's a little more expensive than some other web builders.
  • Increase of visibility of my company.
  • Professional place to display my portfolio online.
  • I've received many inquiries from the form on my website.
I loved how customizable Wix was, and I used it for my online portfolio in college. It is setup similarly to PowerPoint where you can click and drag things where you want. However, I went with Squarespace because their layouts were more aesthetically pleasing in my opinion, and because the ability to create cohesive page designs was a little easier.
Squarespace is great for small businesses and is much more affordable than hiring a designer to build your website. The layouts and design options allow for a very nice looking, professional website. However, I would not recommend Squarespace if you're a larger company or if you can afford to hire a web designer.
