Questions About Template Designs

 

What is Squarespace?

Squarespace is an easy-to-use, drag-and-drop web design platform, which is the home for your entire website, hosting, shop, blog, everything! Squarespace has amazing customer service and plenty of help videos and articles for about any scenario.

Why do you recommend Squarespace over other website builders?

Squarespace is not only user-friendly, but it also offers amazing features like responsive design for mobile viewing, an easy to use drag-and-drop builder, amazing help support, and a library of written and video tutorials. They’ve been around for years and have tons of integrations with your favorite other apps and platforms. Ease of use for you and converting designs for your business, win win.

How much does Squarespace cost?

You can pay for Squarespace monthly or yearly, depending upon your budget. The plan we recommend is the business plan and it’s about $200/yr. Like a lot of online programs/software, the annual subscription is a better deal. If you’ve been paying separate hosting fees, Squarespace will become your new host, which means you’re not paying that every month to another company.

Can I have a shop and a blog on Squarespace?

Yes and Yes! Each template has the ability to add a shop and blog rather the design itself has a demo for that page or not. Squarespace has amazing resources for getting your shop and blog set up and there’s not an additional fee to use either feature. You can add additional features by using tags, categories, and more to your blog posts and shop items. We love Squarespace because you can easily feature blog posts and products throughout your entire site, by category or other filters. Squarespace has amazing resources for getting your shop functionality set up as well.

 

Can you build it for me?

We do offer this service as an add-on. Please select this option at checkout if you’d like us to insert your text and images for you.

Do you offer support after I purchase?

After you purchase a template you’ll receive a getting started guide and video resource area, unique to your specific template. This guide will help you plan your images and text for the site, as well as videos of how to build the entire site. For help after the launch of your site, Squarespace has an amazing technical support team and a vault of videos, tutorials, and more.

I’m nervous Squarespace won’t have enough features for me, isn’t WordPress better?

Our favorite analogy for Squarespace is that it’s kinda like Apple vs Android debate. You’ll have an easy-to-maintain product with a dedicated support and development group. WordPress and “open source” platforms often compare to Android in that there are limitless options for customization, however, you’re dependent on lots of random Joe’s in their basements keeping their code in check, maintaining plugins, etc. We much prefer the “tight-knit” group behind Squarespace.
