Why Squarespace 

Design-driven, user-friendly, performance-focused. These are but a few of the many reasons why we choose Squarespace for ourselves and our clients. 

We are consistently impressed by the materials and support to come out of the woodwork of Squarespace, primarily thanks to how these tools serve users and their cutting-edge websites. Let's dive deeper into the why behind our reverent recommendations.

Our Why Explained

DIY DNA 

  • Squarespace was designed with the do-it-yourself user in mind, making it notably easy for your clients to maintain and update their websites on their own, long after the project has successfully completed. Managing websites is a matter of dragging-and- dropping, pulling on corners to resize images, and WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editing. If they’ve used a computer in the past twenty years they’ll feel right at home.

Design That Performs

  • Squarespace templates are beautifully and thoughtfully designed to incorporate cutting edge UI/UX best practices, which means your clients websites will have the best of the best in “form and function” baked right in. Some of our clients ask for their site to not be based on a template and while it is true that Squarespace has a tightly curated library of templates to work with, the templates are there to act as a jumping-o point. Your website will be created and updated to be distinctly and beautifully branded, but maintain a familiar user experience with best practice standards.

Peace of Mind

  • Squarespace is a self-contained platform that works seamlessly and is fully managed from top to bottom. This means there’s never any need to update software, plugins, or widgets; patch security vulnerabilities; or worry that changing one component might break something else. It also means there’s rarely any need to investigate or pay for third-party apps or plugins since most functionality is native to Squarespace.

Responsive Design

  • Mobile traffic now accounts for more than half of all website tra c. With that in mind, it’s critical that websites perform across any device and screen size. Every Squarespace template includes a unique mobile experience that matches the overall styleof the website, so content will look great on every device, every time.

Built-In SEO

  • Every Squarespace website is equipped with all the elements needed for a strong SEO strategy. Site descriptions, page titles, custom URLs, search- friendly formatting, and other key elements are all easily managed. Furthermore, there is an automatically generated built-in sitemap that helps Google to crawl, understand, and ultimately, rank a website.

Squarespace FAQ's

We often field several questions and concerns from local businesses interested in switching or starting their website on Squarespace. For the sake of transparency, we've put together a few FAQs that might clear the air for some interested in taking the first step, yet are still concerned. 

ClientFAQ_Test.jpg

 

What if it's too fancy?

  • Though presentation matters and will continue to matter in the online space, having a simple, beautiful, modern website that's easy to use and easy on the eyes matters more. We can assure that even if you do decide to have a "fancy" look and feel, your website will remain easy to use and follow. 

I don't want it to look like a template. 

  • It's true: Squarespace does have a tightly-curated library of templates to work with. However, these templates should be thought of as a jumping-off point. Though you'll begin on a template, the finished product of your website will seem familiar and unique, just like your brand. 

I don't know if I have the correct assets. 

  • Having your branding, images, and copy are great to have before creating a website. We also understand and recognize that it can be hard to produce those assets. We are here to provide ease in comfort in the gathering process through surveys and one-on-one conversations to aid the process. 

Aren't there free options? 

  • Things aren't always what they seem. After hosting, domains, themes, apps, plugins, custom domains, and removal of third-party ads costs, your website is far from "free." Squarespace eliminates all of these aforementioned scattered issues by packaging domains, hosting, customer support, and continued improvements into a single monthly or annual payment. 

This seems too expensive. 

  • Think of creating your website as not an expense, but an investment. A well-executed website will provide a far greater value than an upfront payment. 

Can I track metrics? 

  • Adding Google Analytics is easy to do on any Squarespace website. SS also has a built-in Metrics App that allows you to use any mobile device to access page views, visitor statistics, and track social media. 

Can I preserve my SEO? 

  • Switching platforms may cause a temporary dip in established search ranking, but only temporarily thanks to Squarespace. Importing blog content is a one-step process, which saves all parties a great deal of time. Additionally, we are able to fully customize URLs, meaning your inbound links will continue to work. Finally, redirects of pages that do not get migrated over are simple to implement and will preserve the SEO value of those pages. 

What if I want to leave Squarespace? 

  • If for some reason you decide to move your website to another platform down the line, Squarespace allows for quick and easy content exports. Currently, Squarespace does not offer support for anything that would necessitate integrating with a third-party API. 

Is there anything Squarespace can't do? 

  • While Squarespace is robust and powerful, there are times that it isn't the best fit for everyone's needs. 

Do I need an app? 

  • The vast majority of app functionality you would need can more than likely be built within a website, which will be far more regularly accessed than an app. Statistically, most people use only five apps, with Facebook taking the lion's share of that screen time. Having a mobile-friendly website that loads quickly from a smartphone browser will save visitors the irritating step of stopping to download a new app. 

Can't I just have a Facebook page? 

  • Facebook is important and can drive traffic and sales, but serve as a website substitute it does not. Facebook is like having a booth at the Farmer's Market - a ton of foot traffic, but the creative freedom is limited, the signal-to-noise ratio is high, and at the end of the ay, the visitors belong to the market itself.
