This is the first feature of our multi-part blog series covering web platforms, designed to help you decide on the right platform for your business.
When it comes to selecting a platform for your website, Squarespace often flies under the radar. However, don’t let its humble reputation fool you. Squarespace is a flexible and beautifully-designed interface for all brands of businesses.
When to consider Squarespace
At Delight Digital, we recommend Squarespace for websites with low complexity. Squarespace is a great solution for sites that are mostly informational or for eCommerce businesses with a simple product offering.
One of Squarespace’s perks is that it doesn't require a separate hosting plan. This means you don't need to sign up for hosting independently, which can often be expensive and may open up your site to a host of potential issues and vulnerabilities.
Another benefit to choosing Squarespace is how customizable it is for business owners. Long gone are the days when you needed to know how to code in order to add a new content to your website. Squarespace makes it easy for you to add new pages and edit existing ones. Did we mention you can do it all from your mobile device?
When to look elsewhere
If you require integrations and the ability to customize your website beyond simple design changes, Squarespace isn't the best choice. It can be limited in terms of plug-ins and control over the user experience.
When it comes to eCommerce, Squarespace does offer this functionality, but it pales in comparison to what Shopify can offer. If you're a business selling a couple products, Squarespace can be a solution for you. However, if you sell dozens of different products or more, Shopify is a better choice.
We have experience with a variety of platforms, including Squarespace. After learning more about your business, we’ll make a recommendation on the right web platform for you. Drop us a line and find out how we can help grow your business today.
