Why do I recommend a Squarespace website platform over the multitude of other platforms available such as WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, Wix, Weebly, SiteCore, etc?
Squarespace was designed with the do-it-yourself user in mind, making it easy for you to maintain, update, and monitor your website on your own. Building pages is a matter of dragging and dropping blocks in a page editor, and backend tasks are a snap with clearly labeled menus and panels. You can use Squarespace's suite of mobile apps to track your site performance in real time, long after the project is complete.
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.
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.
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 optimisation
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. Each site also generates a sitemap automatically that helps Google crawl, understand, and rank a website. Read more about understanding and execution of SEO here.
