Webmasters review for SquareSpace

Value for Money

In comparison to it’s competitors SquareSpace is on the higher end of the pricing scale. Starting with an initial 14 day free trial period allowing you to get acquainted with the web builder and it’s features. The entry level ‘Personal’ package starts at $8 /month through to the most advanced package costing $24 /month. The ‘Personal’ package gives you access to a selection of basic features and a limited set eCommerce tools. At the other end of the scale, the ‘Business’ package (most advanced) offers an array of great features suited for the experienced user; unlimited pages, galleries, storage, bandwidth and more.

Editor & Templates

The editor is laid out like a dashboard with the various features and function options located down the left taskbar. I liked the method of entering/adding text, images and logos, it differs from other web builders as the popular drag-and-drop functionality is not utilised by SquareSpace. However, this editor would have been better if there was a real time screen to show live changes throughout the build and editing process.

SquareSpace offer a selection of very clean and modern design templates, which I consider to be some of the most desirable among their competitors. I believe these designs reflect the forward thinking approach of the company. However, only having 26 design templates to choose from has it’s shortfalls when trying to create a different and unique website in the online marketplace.

Additional Features

SquareSpace includes eCommerce options/tools in all premium accounts. The advanced ‘Business’ package account allows you to sell unlimited products with access to features such as real time carrier shipping, label printing and integrated accounting via Xero. The ‘Personal’ and ‘Professional’ packages limit your product offering but provide all the relevant tools to get you started.

Guides and Customer Service

The ‘SquareSpace Help’ support section is easy to navigate and includes a comprehensive directory of knowledge, help, tips and advice. If you are unable to find the answers you are looking for you have the option to open a ‘Live Chat’ or a ‘Ticket’.

There is also a ‘Workshops’ section which provides in-depth walkthrough/tutorial videos to help ensure you get the best experience while building your website.

Summary

In conclusion, SquareSpace provides a clean and intuitive website builder with a selection of modern design templates, including a comprehensive list of features and functions.

In comparison to others SquareSpace has a more sophisticated appeal aimed at the more experienced user.

SquareSpace is ranked #9 on the top 10 list
