Squarespace is the gold standard for web design

5.0 2 months ago

Pros:

Squarespace is the most intuitive, simple and easy to use web builder I've ever used. I recommend it to all my clients who aren't confident in their website management skills.

Cons:

It's definitely on the pricier side of website design options but it's worth it for the ease of use and built in beautiful design. Almost impossible to get it wrong.

I couldn't be happier with Squarespace as a web-building platform

5.0 last month New

Comments: This platform was a winner from the start. I had done trials of a few other builders, and I caught on to this one the fastest. It's extremely intuitive, and they have tons of beautiful virtually plug-and-play templates that anyone can use to make a stunning website.

Pros:

Squarespace is so easy to use. Although having a design background helps, you don't have to have one to understand and use this platform. Having said that, it's also an incredibly powerful tool, with comprehensive features.

Cons:

As I have found with any website-building tool, there always seem to be a handful of features that seem like no brainers, but aren't offered. I found this to be the case when I wanted a scrolling carousel of images. But, there are always work arounds, and although it was a bit more work, I figured out how to use the tools offered to get close to my desired result.

Read this before you sign up

1.0 2 months ago New

Pros:

We have been on Squarespace since 2010, that should tell you how long we have known them. Initially it was a tightly knit community with customer care, even though we are in Australia, they usually got back to us on email ok. When they got bigger, the service and quality was gradually downgraded. They would make changes to their framework without much customer support which meant parts of your website didnt work. Their SEO has also always been on the lower end based on rankings we have been getting. For the past 2 weeks, they have taken our website down, after nearly 14 years of being their customer. They wont tell us why and they wont tell us how to fix it. I have lodged ticket after ticket. They just dont respond period. Dont waste your money, their focus is to get as many people signed up as possible rather than caring what happens afterwards. They are just a marketing funnel and they will happily leave you when you need any kind of help

Cons:

Customer Support and customer care which simply does not exist at all in this company. I dont understand how hard it is for them to reply to simple emails

Fairly Easy to Use Website Builder

5.0 4 months ago

Comments: Overall I like Squarespace and I will definitely continue to use it.

Pros:

Squarespace is fairly easy to use. Has most fundamental features built into the platform. Great no-fuss option. It integrates with most major third-party apps as well so that's great.

Cons:

Drag/drop features/offerings are not as robust as other platforms. There are a number of limitations when it comes to customizations so some coding experience might be required for any special features, etc. you might want to create.

Squarespace for beauty biz

5.0 3 weeks ago New

Comments: My experience has been fairly great with Squarespace. After 4 years, I’m satisfied as is my business.

Pros:

I love that I can access templates, edit what I want, create landing pages, have an booking page and online shop all in one place.

Cons:

Not much that I don’t like about Squarespace, it’s been pretty easy to catch on and build a website convenient for me and clients/customers.
