Cons

- While you can inject custom CSS, its flexibility is relatively limited. - Functional customization is also limited.

Simple yet powerful

2016-01-19

in utilizing web design platforms in the past like Yola I've come to expect a trade-off in functionality for simplicity.

Pros

Easy to learn, ecommerce, blog, customizable, open API/integration, real-time, support is great, low relative cost, growing company, pre-built templates... so much more.

Cons

It's a template. By definition there are limits to the amount of wiggle room you have.

Squarespace is the go-to host for my personal and business websites.

2018-05-28

Pros

Endless possibilities, Super easy to use, beautiful templates, and makes the process move super quick from concept to launch.

Cons

Sometimes there are UI errors that make using the drag and drop design features a hassle.

Used to start websites for multiple businesses with satisfaction

2018-06-25

Pros

It's easy to use with templates and "drag/drop" feature of creating the website.

Cons

I dislike the ability to easily customize certain features within templates and the automatic cropping it does of most images on mobile view.

Visually stunning, user friendly design & functionality

2017-07-18

15x as many inquiries as I got before using another website builder platform, customer credibility, and a LOT less stress and time wasted!

Pros

I love the form feature and the ability for my customers to contact me and fill out questionnaires based on a wide variety of different "field" options all automatically sent straight to my email.

Cons

The website editor has crashed for me often on Safari, so I had to get used to using Chrome for website editing. The form reporting also isn't the greatest, so while I do love getting form responses/reports sent straight to my email, they are sent in plain text in the email body so it makes it more difficult to gather and synchronize form results (would love PDF/spreadsheet options as well).

I love building websites with Squarespace

2017-01-19

The templates are gorgeous and easily customizable without any CSS knowledge, BUT you are also able to inject code if that suits you as well.

Pros

I love how easy it is to customize the design and styles of a template

Cons

I wish that you could share via social accounts easier when blog articles are published.

easy website building software

2018-01-19

easy software building for early to mid market companies.

Pros

Integrations to 3rd party apps is very simple, usually just code embed that too with a functional dashboard.

Cons

Limited options when you have to use it for website personalization real time marketing content. Most of the themes give websites a "template like look" would like to see more innovative themes.

Pros

The templates are some of the most clean templates in comparison to other service-based content management systems.

Fantastic Option for Your Website

2018-05-04

I have definitely recommended it, and will continue to do so. It has pros and cons when comparing with Wordpress, and both are solid options, but I've been happy with Squarespace.

Pros

Beautiful templates. I feel like my site is secure.

Cons

And for some pages, social media only previews my logo and not the content or images on the page.

Easy-to-use, flexible, and good-looking web design, all backed up by stellar customer support.

2017-09-06

Squarespace lets us build and host a good looking website without the significant time and resource cost as custom development.

Pros

Fortunately, SquareSpace's templates are brilliant.

Cons

Some of the functionality that seems like a no-brainer, such as recurring payments and more complex code integration, is not possible out of the box. Third-party tools can services can be used to achieve these features, but at added cost and without the same seamless experience that SquareSpace prides itself on.

Currently building my new Squarespace website, and it's very easy to use.

2018-06-18

Pros

Plus, it's a drag and drop style website builder, so you can make a website in a couple hours, no problem!

Cons

I wish it was sometimes more customizable. There are some design aspects I wish I could implement on my website, but either it's not possible in Squarespace, or I would need someone to apply custom coding.

For anyone looking to have a great e-commerce site, Squarespace is a great option.

2018-06-22

Squarespace makes website hosting easy. I no longer worry if my site is up, Squarespace handles that.

Pros

- Built in "developer mode" to customize templates - Integration with platforms like Mailchimp and Shipstation - The ability for non-technical users to update pages

Cons

- The sales tax functionality is limited which can be a big deal depending on what you sell - Squarespace is customizable up to a point.

After 10 Years of WordPress, We Now Build All Sites on Squarespace

2018-06-20

Pros

The platform is very stable, and unlike a self-hosted WordPress site, we don't really need to worry about management or sites breaking.

Cons

I wish you could duplicate sites, and more easily integrate with APIs
