Why the pros love Squarespace

Designers, developers, agencies, and industries use Squarespace as their go-to web publishing tool for clients. Meet a few, and hear why Squarespace is the best platform for them.


Expressive design

Squarespace templates are beautiful and effective right out of the box. They shine even brighter when a designer adds their own touches. With Squarespace’s built-in customization tools, you can create bespoke, made-to-order websites with design elements like animations, video backgrounds, bold typography, and other branding must-haves. Ben Manley of Knapsack Creative says his clients are blown away by how unique each website they build is, even starting with a template.

Commerce, simplified

Selling products or services online shouldn’t mean that your client’s website looks like a spreadsheet. With Squarespace’s commerce integrations, your clients can build and track their sales and marketing funnels without compromising on design. It’s easy to update inventory, change product descriptions, and fulfill orders without tapping your design or development resources.

Pricing for any budget

On Kerstin Martin’s blog, she praises “Squarespace’s pricing structure because it’s simple, affordable, and transparent, and there are no hidden or unexpected additional costs.” We offer several pricing plans to meet the needs of all your clients, whether it’s a simple personal page or a robust online store.

An all-in-one platform

Chris over at Sweaty Wisdom wrote a piece comparing Squarespace to another platform. She likes that Squarespace offers domains and hosting as well as solutions for building mailing lists, sending Email Campaigns, and optimizing SEO. We even have a logo maker. You can help clients manage their entire online presence with Squarespace.

Exceptional Customer Care

Paige Brunton says Customer Care is one of eight reasons she chose to build her own business' home on Squarespace. Squarespace Customer Care is available 24/7, is friendly, and makes an effort to find a solution to any problem. Customer Care Advisors work closely with engineers and product managers, so they know their stuff. After you wrap a project, leave the support to us. We’ve got you both covered.

Low maintenance

With Squarespace, you can build beautiful websites without worrying about plugins or stability. Anjelica Dezel loves Squarespace because there are no security updates or patches to worry about. On another site building platform, she spent at least an hour a week updating sites. With Squarespace, she got that hour back.

Ease of use

Our seamless user experience is one of six reasons to use Squarespace, according to Louise of Solopreneur Sidekick. Its simple drag-and-drop functionality means you can make edits with no coding required. Everything you need is built into Squarespace.
