What does the company do well?
Squarespace has excellent templates that make it incredibly easy to launch a beautiful website quickly. They take so much of the hard work out of choosing looks and formats and fonts, that the only thing left to do is plug and play your content. Beyond that, there is incredible freedom to build and design beyond their templates - but it’s not necessary. They balance those two things really well (user friendliness and customization capability). Also... customer service is TOP notch. Quick, friendly, abundantly helpful.
What does the company not do well?
If I had to choose something, it would be that there isn’t yet an iPad app for editing. That being said, there is a nearly full service iPhone app for editing any page and most settings. And that’s HUGE. I just wish there was an iPad specific one.
What do you wish you had known about the company before using?
I didn’t realize the trial was only 2 weeks. That was pretty short-feeling. I wish there was an option to keep your website offline for longer, while still toying with it and figuring out if you’re going to go with it.
