You get a quality, well-designed site easily with minimal technical expertise. I'm no HTML wizard but I've made two good-looking websites easily.

Pros

Templates, editability, ease of set-up, integrated e-commerce, easy access to good stock photos, wide variety of typefaces and styles.

Cons

You do need to know what you are doing more than with some of the really simple website builders, but that is how you get more quality because you are not constrained by the pre-set formats.

Lots of drag and drop templates, no coding experience needed! Easy to add multiple user to contribute to your site design.

Little bit of a learning curve for users who are not computer saavy. Certain types of pages can be confusing to set up at first. Both of these issues are easy to solve though.

Pros

I was able to use Squarespace to quickly put together a personal website that looked extremely clean and had a bare minimum of complicated set up. I got numerous compliments on the quality of the site despite having no experience with website building or design.

Cons

Some of the menu options are not as intuitive to find as I might like. The best example is when I needed to add different menu headings on the site (I.e., About Me, FAQ, etc.): it’s located under “Pages,” which does make a degree of sense, but it’s not the most intuitive and I constantly forgot how to get there. Also, to my memory, while the analytics page was good, it didn’t allow you to filter for custom dates, instead being last month, last week, etc.

Ecommerce function is lame. Also wish the blog feature had more in common with LinkedIn than WordPress. I don't want to log into pages every d#mn time, if you know what I mean.

Pros

If you don't have any clue what you're doing or what you want, use Squarespace. It's hard to get lost when you don't have a destination in mind. If I was a restaurant, musician, or anyone else that just wanted to "get her done" I''d use this in a heartbeat... though with all the competition out there, I'd do my homework first.

Cons

If there's something that you'd like to tweak or make your own, you're pretty SOL'ed. Sure there's the opportunity to code at your own risk, but surely in 2017 we can find a true happy medium, no? Loading times were also slow which means I spent a good deal of my build time watching the circle of buffering death spin. Frustrating.

I used a competitor for creating a previous website. I wish I would have used Squarespace instead. The templates are awesome! There are so many to choose from. You can make a great website without needing extensive training or experience in website development. If you like the template the way it is, just add your content. If not, customize it to your specific needs. I love it!

Pros

Squarespace has tons of high quality templates to choose from. Each template is fully editable. They've created a platform that looks great and is easy to use. You need some tech skills, but you don't need web design experience or training to make a professional website.

Cons

If I had to pick one con, I'd have to say that I don't like the setup and format of the commerce options.

easy software building for early to mid market companies.

Pros

Integrations to 3rd party apps is very simple, usually just code embed that too with a functional dashboard.

Adding blocks to build websites is easy also customization pages and div¿s is also pretty easy. And with the space block, we can very quickly add vertical or horizontal padding to content.

Cons

Limited options when you have to use it for website personalization real time marketing content.

Most of the themes give websites a "template like look" would like to see more innovative themes.

Pros

The task of creating my own website was a daunting one when I first set out, but this software is so incredibly easy to use! I was able to create a website I am proud of in no time! They have amazingly descriptive step by step instructions on some of the more difficult aspects of design and integration. Best of all their customer service blows me away which is extremely rare in this day and age. They respond in less than 24 hours and the last person I connected with even created a custom video for me to help with something I later felt dumb for even asking. There is not a single thing that I could think of that this software is lacking. Very happy with my decision to use it and it is worth every single penny.

Cons

There really isn¿t anything I¿ve come across that i don¿t like about this software and I really looked. As with any software I pay monthly for I was definitely looking for a reason not to spend but they have given me none. Everything from design to ease of use has seriously been more than I could ask for and the fact that their customer service department is on point has me sold for life. I guess the only con that I could even think of would be that it costs any money at all, but you really get what you pay for where this software is concerned.

Squarespace user interface is superior to anything I have used before or have used since. Recently our company stopped using Squarespace and I SO WISH THEY WOULD GO BACK! There are endless options on how to make your web pages dynamic. The absolute best thing is that how you create and move forward in making pages is very intuitive.

Cons

I can not give you one con about using this software, I would recommend this to anyone, whether you know what your doing or are a small mom and pop shop wanting to have a web page for your business. I promise you can do it with this software!

My favorite part about this software is that it's so easy for a non-developer to create and maintain a website. I also loved the way they allowed for editing and placement of photos. It was much better than WP.

I didn't like the cost because I had built all of my other websites on free WP. Any developer I have hired since I used SS only built in WP so that was always interesting to me too.

1. Continuous Service - is rarely down
2. Cool looking templates - my content looks great!
3. Awesome integrations are easy to set up - Google Adwords, Adsense, Pixel, all wonderful and important for a modern website.
4. Support always answers my dumb emails really quickly

Pros

Squarespace is a great choice for artists who know what they want . The templates look professional and clean, not amatuerish and clunky. The customizations that you can run in the Code Injection area ie: google analytics and Facebook Pixel tracking are great.

Cons

I wish I could combine templates without having to hire a developer and lose support. If you customize too deeply, Squarespace eventually can't help - which makes sense. I just wish there was more customization overall.

Cool templates that allow me to quickly put together beautiful websites, and a full range of customizability from the developer mode that allows me to make whatever i want.

Pros

Squarespace provides stunning templates and a full range of customizability allowing me to get whatever i want or need out of their service. For a couple of clients the squarespace templates work just fine, but with their developer mode, when i need to make more specific changes to a site, or build it from the ground up, anything is possible.

Cons

There is little to no support or information about their developer mode. If you want to use it you are mainly on your own to figure things out.

Squarespace is an easy-to-use platform for creating modern websites that are both beautiful and easy to navigate.

Pros

Squarespace is easy to use with a low learning curve and lots of available resources for using the software. The website templates are modern, easy to install and switch out. The drag and drop visual editor makes customizing your site a breeze. Customer service is very responsive.

Cons

The templates are beautiful but they are limited and currently (at the writing of this review) most of the templates contain parallax scrolling so they all look similar. I'd like to see the variety of templates increased.

Pros

The key advantage of the squarespace interface is the way it is designed to sit behind/beside your site so you can really easily edit, preview and navigate without getting lost or confused. For me, this is one of the key things that makes a good CMS.

Another important factor is how well you can do in-place editing, i.e. changing the content while you're looking at the page rather than in a separate form somewhere. It works really well, even with the more complex features like grid elements and text formatting etc.

All these things are important for our team as the day to day editing is done by noon web-savvy people. However, we also need the occasional tweak from a web developer, and the ability add custom CSS and HTML snippets makes this a doddle.

Cons

If I could pick any fault it would probably be the ecommerce aspects. Whilst comprehensive enough for many different types of product, the configuration possibilities are ultimately limited and you might find yourself wanting more options for how you display products for instance.

Although their design features/style editor does entail a lot of options, I wish it was organized better. Instead of clicking on a page to edit, you have to backtrack out of the page section and go into the style editor. It would be easier if it was in one place. Secondly, I wish the resizing of images on a page worked easier.
