The squarespace website development platform is our specialty. There are so many wonderful options available today and choosing the right platform can be as important as choosing your website professional.
Squarespace was designed with a user friendly interface, making it notably easy for you to maintain and update your website on your own, long after the project has successfully completed. Managing your website is a matter of dragging-and dropping, pulling on corners to resize images, and WYSIWYG editing. If they’ve used a computer in the past twenty years they’ll feel right at home.
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 that although you find the need to add third-party apps or plugins, you may not need to since most functionality is native to Squarespace.
Beautiful design that performs
Squarespace templates are beautifully and thoughtfully designed to incorporate cutting edge UI/UX best practices, which means your website will have the best of the best in “form and function” baked right in. Don’t let the word “template” lead you to believe your website will look like a template. Think of each template as a shell or framework with unique features that once populated with your branding and content will be unique to you and your business.
Mobile traffic now accounts for more than half of all website traffic. With that in mind, it’s critical that websites perform across any device and screen size. Every Squarespace template and website includes a unique mobile experience that matches the overall style of the website, so content will look great on every device, every time.
Built-in search engine optimization
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.

Questions and Concerns
A modern website needs to have a simple, beautiful interface that is easy to use and gorgeous to look on any device. It is equally important that the sight use industry best practices for Search Engine Optimization and an effective strategy for online presence.

It’s easy to add Google Analytics tracking to your website. The Squarespace Metrics App also lets you use any mobile device to access page views, visitor statistics, and track social media.
Is there anything Squarespace doesn’t do?
While Squarespace is robust and powerful, there are pros and cons when choosing a website platform. It is very important to me that clients and potential clients get the best fit for their needs and objectives. Squarespace isn’t currently built to support:
- Recurring payments
- Member logins
- Anything that would necessitate integrating with a third-party API
- Entire site transfer to a different website host. If for some reason you wish to leave Squarespace, you can export certain content from your Squarespace site into an .xml file, but you are not able to transfer the entire site to another host provider. It is native to Squarespace.
Aren’t there free options?
Things are rarely as free as they first appear. Once you add in costs for hosting, domains, themes, apps, plugins, custom domains, and removing third-party ads, you’re looking at a price significantly higher than “free”. An advantage to using Squarespace is the ability to package domains, hosting, customer support, and continued improvements into a single monthly or annual payment.
What if I want to leave Squarespace?
If for some reason your client wants to move their website to another platform down the line, Squarespace lets them export content quickly and easily.
I was introduced to Squarespace in September 2011 and have never looked back.
As a marketing professional, photographer and graphic designer I had longed for a website platform that I could utilize without having to have using code. The desire to be able to build a website with my design expertise was a constant in my day to day business life as I had to rely on and work with website professionals that created reliable websites with code, but very little design sense. Communicating client needs and objectives for effective branding and visual presentation on the web was a very frustrating and time consuming experience. I developed basic html and css skills using dreamweaver, but it was painful and did not provide a client with the ability to easily make updates on their own.
