Pros: Squarespace allows us to develop very well thought out content with stunning basic templates. By the way, the basic templates are not as bad as those of competitors who are more interested in buying a paid template. Squarespace is also a great option for a simple landing page or temporary solution. In addition, with this software, your shop will be organized to accept PayPal and Apple Pay which is really very great.

Cons: Discounts do not have limitations of use or validity. We want to give a discount for the client for one-time use, but the only option now is to provide the code, and then monitor when the code is used and then immediately steal its use. Also, I'd like to see a few more business-centric templates.

Pros: There is no doubt that SquareSpace is a great product. I found there websites beautiful and clean. They also had all the features anyone would need.

Cons: When I attempted a website a few years ago, some of the functionality felt tight and inflexible. That may have changed.

Overall: Clean slick website option. Definitely a great product.

Pros: Squarespace is the best. Designing a website with 0 coding experience is seamless. Their template selection offers beautiful options. I also have an integration with Printful that allows people to purchase shirts from my site, then they are auto-fulfilled.

Cons: Squarespace charges for a lot of add-ons. Their intro price can quickly go up as you add more features. It's reasonable, but it's easy to go over budget if you are basing it off their advertised price.

Overall: Ease of use when it comes to setting up a website and eCommerce site for my small business.

Pros: Had a friend ask me to help them with their website on this platform. First time user and it was very simple to make changes and do what they needed.

Cons: As a developer sometimes I get frustrated with wysiwyg editors. Sometimes something simple like putting an image to the side of content can be rather complex but I understand why.

Overall: fast and easy setup for client.

Pros: Beautiful templates to choose from to get started. Also their developer docs are really great for doing custom development within Squarespace.

Cons: What I like least about Squarespace is the product selling side of it. It's not that it's a bad system, it's that the features aren't as robust as other platforms I've used. It's great for single product based businesses, but it's not scalable. If Squarespace were to build up their ecommerce side, they could have a really complete system.

Pros: The design: it is clean, minimalistic, very professional, both websites and user interface.
The user interface is straightforward to use, intuitive, very clear.
The signing-up process and domain buying are fast and clear.

Cons: With a personal subscription, there is no code injection possibility, meaning that you have almost no option for customising the template you chose.
Some features are entirely missing (third level menu, for example).
The process of changing template is not clean, makes you lose some of the customisation work you did.
There is no possibility to export and migrate your website to other platforms.

Overall: Quick set up of a very professionally designed website.
No worries about hosting. Everything you purchase comes in one single invoice.

Pros: Even with no web development experience you can easily create a high quality, professional looking website. You're website can have whatever features you want, its own domain, a special email, and your website can be ad-free. I like all the layouts you can choose from as well. The analytics are a huge bonus too.

Cons: Price is somewhat high but you definitely get what you pay for. Also, it can be difficult to customize and change the settings on some of the templates.

Pros: Squarespace allowed me to create beautifully designed websites and more importantly helped me transition my WP blogs over easily. I ran tons of blogs back in the day and lost too many b/c I just didn't keep up with the latest WP releases, plugins or latest mobile requirements by Google. Squarespace was the best solution to take away the pain and become the preferred solution for my blogs. I also liked the feature using (paid) Getty images without having to set up a Getty account.

Cons: I think the page builder isn't intuitive, esp. setting up menus and links within the website is hard to understand. I just didn't understand how that. Also setting up magazine style sites isn't as easy as with wordpress. It's kind of painful, which is why I haven't moved all sites over to Squarespace. Lastly the app seemed to be a good thing, but I never actually used it and it never asked me to use it ;)

Overall: No more pain setting up a blog

Pros: I went in with low expectations because I am used to working with a few different CMS's (Kentico, WordPress) and was assuming I wouldn't be able to do much with SquareSpace because of it's low price, which was ok because I only planned on having a few pages anyway. I was surprised that I could easily build in a Contact Form, eCommerce for Donations, and an Event Calendar. It didn't take me long to get up and running, and was also pleasantly surprised how easy it was to add what I wanted to the CSS to make some changes from the initial template.
For the price, you get a clean, modern and responsive website. I honestly don't know why more small mom and pop type stores make the very small investment to have a site that is far superior to many other of the cheap options.

Cons: Although there are quite a few available, there could always be more template options. Many of them seem to be retreads of others. Other than that, there were a few features that took some trial and error before I could figure it out, but most people should be able to get up and running relatively quickly.

Overall: I was somewhat of an amateur to building a website when I decided to go with Squarespace. It is not idiot-proof by any means, but I was definitely able to make a nice, clean site pretty much on my own. Squarespace has so many features that most small to medium sized businesses could do whatever they need with it at little cost.

Pros: Of the many website builders out there, this and Wix may be the best. The available components are nice and if you are skilled you can produce a very nice responsive brochure site.

Cons: Just like any website builder, if you don't know what you're doing you get exactly what you paid for. A cheap looking website that screams, I didn't want to pay much for my website. Sorry to say.

Pros: As a web-designer, I've dabbled in a number of CMS website builders. Squarespace is unbeateable. It's templates are so current in terms of web-standards and features. Lots of liberty when it comes to customization. All sites are mobile-optimized. Domains, security, hosting and metrics are all included.

Cons: None. At this good a price, there's no sense in splitting hairs to find something negative to say. SS is amazing.

Pros: Great customer service and help area. Overall, pretty easy to set up and use. Beautiful templates. I feel like my site is secure.

Cons: Their dragging and dropping-type feature is a little different than I'm used to, and I certainly messed up some things when just getting started. Wish you could set up templates for different features, like things that are constant in blog posts (ex: boilerplate). And for some pages, social media only previews my logo and not the content or images on the page.

Overall: I have definitely recommended it, and will continue to do so. It has pros and cons when comparing with Wordpress, and both are solid options, but I've been happy with Squarespace.

Pros: The very best part of Squarespace is how easy it is to use while still delivering a great looking product. I love that my clients can use it themselves to make small changes to their website when needed without completely ruining the design of the website.

Cons: Some of the templates can get a little glitchy. I have a Staff photo page, for example, that is super finicky to edit because every time something moves the whole page shifts and there isn't an easy way to get it all back together.

Pros: No knowledge of HTML or CSS is needed to build a beautiful website with squarespace. While I do have a basic knowledge of web design/development, I'd rather not deal with the intricacies of stylesheets. There is a reason this company is growing so fast, the themes are beautiful, modular and remarkably simple to use.

Cons: The number of themes is somewhat limited and can really put you in a corner in terms of design. Websites often can "look" like they're from a pre-made theme if you don't put the work in to customize them.

Overall: Squarespace has helped me set up a number of websites in record time. All analytics, SEO and data are accessible with mobile apps which never leaves me guessing.

Reliable, relative ease in use. Some really great templates and palates to choose from.

Pros: As a wedding photographer, my website is many times the first point of access for potential clients. Squarespace has helped me, extremely easily, build a fully-customisable site to showcase my work, keeping my photography front and centre. There are dozens of templates to choose from, and the page builder is made in a way that even someone that isn't too tech savvy would be able to make their website from scratch. Their customer support team replies to queries within a few hours, and their pricing is very reasonable.

Cons: My only downside with Squarespace is that some very basic design functions, such as font sizes, vary so greatly between certain templates. For instance, the template I currently use doesn't give me the option to change the size of the normal text font, but only lets me change the size of the body text as a whole, altering headings in the process. This is a minuscule problem, and I easily found a way around it.

Squarespace is a beautiful, powerful tool for building websites. I could make anything I wanted!

Pros: It has a wide capability to do whatever you can imagine. I used it mainly for the blog function, but it can do so much more. I had a distinct look in mind and was able to pull it off without difficulty. The web builder is a wizard (or makes you feel like one).

Cons: The main drawback for me and my team was the cost. We were paying for more features than we needed, so we've switched to other, cheaper options (with fewer features) to suit our needs.

Better than go daddy I would recommend

Pros: I'm a big fan of Squarespace. For myself, I do use WordPress as my CMS, but for clients and one-off projects, Squarespace has definitely been the way to go. This drag and drop website builder is very straightforward and the variety of templates means it should work for whatever your business/industry is.

Cons: I wish there was more ability to customize things on the backend for SEO purposes and the ability to adjust some of the template pieces like removing a hamburger menu or changing the default spacing would be amazing. It's just a few tiny things that are frustrating.

Overall: This allows my clients to build a website practically overnight. It's easy to update your own content and you don't need to know CSS or HTML.

Beautiful web site without much work involved, ready out of the box

Pros: Every theme is beautiful. You can just drag and drop with no knowledge of coding or customization. It is easy to set up a shop and just get started selling your products!

Cons: It is very limited. It reminds me of an iPhone - it's gorgeous but there's very little you can do to customize it. Tax rates need to be entered manually through zip codes, there are very few options for discount codes and shipping rates, drag and drop feature is very glitchy and buggy.

Great for midlevel design and price

Pros: Super easy to start a website with limited experience. Lots of features and reasonable pricing. TONS of support available, free web training etc.

Cons: When building sites with templates, you are limited to the specific features of that template. It can be pretty disappointing to design an entire site with a template you think might work to find out it doesn't support a feature you need. Finding the appropriate template can be very difficult.

Overall: While a designer was initially hired to build this website, non-technical employees are able to update and maintain the site

Stylish website builder ideal for blogging and podcasting.

Pros: I love how simple Squarespace is to use and how inexpensive it is. I love that it is an all in one software so everyone is on the same page

Cons: I wish there were a little more ways to play with the templates. There very well could be but if so it is a little more difficult than on other sites.

Pros: Squarespace shows up a lot in ads on YouTube and Podcasts and for good reason. It is perfect for the modern website look and is very simple to set up.

Cons: Using Squarespace is easy to get started but as you look to customize, you'll probably spend a lot more time digging in the weeds looking for answers - but not too bad.

Overall: Squarespace is easy, quick and relatively inexpensive (as websites go). It is ideal for small businesses and organizations.

Pros: I really the like the ease of use and advance features it offers for building a clean and unique website for both personal and professional use. It has a good UX that makes building a website a moderately easy task and is great for integration with Shopify.

Cons: The thing I have the most consistent issue with is Sqaurespace not wanting to work with high quality images. I will often have to extremely compress any assets before the software is able to work with them; And this is an issue across multiple machines.

Overall: It's really easy to pick up even if you're not well versed in HTML or Web Design

Pros: We love this tool , its great. We can add multiple emails, so that everyone on the same page. If one fails to attend, the other can complement. We get request information, customers can be contacted easily and proper arrangements can be made

Cons: Not very popular though, a lot more advertising is needed. I am glad, the pop up window came in the side panel of Yahoo!, probably it will attract more businesses.
