Why Squarespace?

DIY DNA

Squarespace was designed with the do-it-yourself user in mind, making it notably easy for you to maintain and update your websites on your 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 editing. If you've used a computer in the past twenty years you'll feel right at home.

Beautiful design that performs

Squarespace templates are beautifully and thoughtfully designed to incorporate cutting edge UI/UX (user interface/user experience) best practices, which means your websites will have the best of the best in “form and function” baked right in.

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 traffic. 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 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. StationV will make sure SEO is optimized for your site.

24/7 award-winning support

The Customer Care team at Squarespace is available seven days a week, 24-hours a day, and has won several awards for outstanding customer support.

13 years in the making

Squarespace launched in 2003 and has grown steadily since, gaining over a million customers over the years. It is a well-funded and well-regarded company. Your don’t have to worry that Squarespace might be an ash in the pan.

Room to grow

Squarespace scales. Squarespace was designed for everyone from bloggers to musicians to online retailers, so you can be confident that it is robust and flexible enough to grow with you.

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.

Can’t I just have a Facebook page?

Facebook is important and can drive traffic and sales, but it’s not a substitute for a website. Facebook is akin to having a booth at a farmer’s market — lots of foot traffic but the creative freedom is limited, the signal-to-noise ratio is high, and, at the end of the day, the visitors belong to the market itself.
