Our Clients: Squarespace Slays The Competition
We've been using Squarespace website builder since 2012 and we love it. Our clients rave about the usability and sleek design. We've built over 300 killer websites in the past 5 years and are constantly evolving with Squarespace's new features.
The Interface Is All That!
We love the user interface. It is easy to understand there may be limited options, but each choice leads you to a new set of choices to fine-tune the end result. An hour of coding to create a custom slider turns into seconds with just a few clicks of the mouse. Anyone on our team to make changes on the fly with no background and it looks dope af every time.
Real support offered by real people. Unlike many other service providers, there is chat and email functionality to channel questions through. In many other platforms, especially if you are utilizing homegrown tools, i.e. custom themes or widgets, you must rely on user forums if you run into a problem or have questions.
But it's so easy to use, our need for support has been limited. Whereas in the case of other service providers we have used we were stuck after 15 minutes when something wasn’t rendering correctly, we needed custom code to overwrite something, or, even more frustrating, we had no idea where to even look to make the change we needed.
Squarespace offers the cleanest selection of themes. Sure, there aren’t a million options, but the 40+ they offer have extreme flexibility and can quickly become personalized. We spent hours combing through WordPress templates, only to be left disappointed. There are some awesome ones out there that offer great flexibility, but I have found them to be time intensive to set up and not always that user-friendly (as they are built by many different people).
Security Like Fort Knox!
Now many people don’t think about this, but having a secure place to host is extremely important. In the past we have had issues with WordPress allowing loopholes in some of their widgets that offer opportunities for the not so great people to sneak their way in.
I even ended up in a situation where a site I was managing was hacked and someone was selling black market drugs utilizing the back end of our high traffic site. Sure, this may be an extreme situation, but we like that all apps/widgets, etc. are Squarespace controlled. Of course that means less variety, but they are backed up by the Squarespace team so we have complete comfort in knowing they have taken care of these loopholes we may or may not be privy to.
