This is the first of our multi-part blog series covering web platforms, designed to help you decide the right one for your business.
Out of all the available choices when it comes to web platforms, Squarespace may be the one which flies under the radar most, but don't let that fool you. Squarespace is a flexible and beautifully-designed platform for all sorts of businesses. Let's find out if it's the one for you.
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 major benefit of Squarespace is that it doesn't require a separate hosting plan. This means you don't need to sign up for hosting plans which are often expensive and open up your site to a host of potential issues. This means the cost of operating a Squarespace site over time is low compared to other platforms.
Another benefit of 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 page 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 iPhone?
When to consider something else
If you require integrations and the ability to customize your website beyond simple design changes, Squarespace isn't the best choice of platform. 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, Shopify would be a better choice.
We have experience with a variety of platforms, including Squarespace. After learning more about your business, we will make a recommendation on the right web platform for you. Regardless of if you're looking to setup a site on Squarespace, or already have one, drop us a line and find out how we can help grow your business today.
