The Best Website Builder for Simple Sites

Reviewed on 2019-09-30

I genuinely love this tool for creating websites. It is easy to use, cost efficient, and turns out a great end product. I have used it to make websites for photographers, restaurants, and sales businesses alike. It is so versatile and every site visitor thinks it's professionally done.

Pros

This software is easy to use, intuitive, and when you can't figure something out Support is right there for you. They have tons of how to videos and instructions that make everything pretty easy to figure out.

Cons

I dislike the spacer feature - it gets pretty annoying to use those instead of being able to snap an object to a grid and align that way. It works much like Microsoft Word in the sense that if you try to resize or adjust something, sometimes everything on the page moves.

BentoBox

Reasons for Choosing Squarespace

Our site was continually hacked, there was very little support, it was complicated to use. Our sites were outdated and I wanted to switch us to something everyone on our team, no matter their level of tech expertise, could use.

Switched From

WordPress

Reasons for Switching to Squarespace

BentoBox is specific to restaurants - they have a wonderful product, however their set-up and pricing did not work for us. Essentially, you pay them to create the initial site and then it's up to you to edit/take care of after the fact. You pay a large set up fee and a pretty expensive monthly fee in perpetuity. We have five locations and it just wasn't cost efficient. Since I already knew how to use Squarespace and knew how to work with SEO, it was an easy, much more cost-effective switch. Bentobox is a great product, but it is pricey to maintain. As a restaurant, we have simple needs as to what people are looking for when they come to our site.

Great blogging platform

Reviewed on 2024-04-01

Pros

There are lots of capabilities and features built into this blogging platform, and after a bit of a learning curve, I can take advantage of most of them.

Cons

It took me a bit longer than other blogging platforms to master, but it really is intuitive and packs a lot of tools.

Customer service and support woeful

Terrible customer and I'm leaving the platform and taking my business elsewhere

Pros

An option for e-commerce transactions and onsite transactions

Cons

The customer service experience when I experienced an issue was subpar. Completely inflexible and quite frankly condescending with generic answers and no actual help offered

Easy for not professional website builders

Easy to use, good customer support. A lot of option for choosing what suits you best.

Easy to use, good customer support. A lot of option for choosing what suits you best.

Pros

I had no skills in building website before using squarespace. It was easy to use the template available. Although I need to redo the website after 5 years, it still stays functional and works well. Customer services are very responsive with all inquiries.

Cons

The shop option on my plan did not allow any changes to be made for the look of the shop so I moved elsewhere.

I like the ease of the technology. It allows everyone who can drag and drop and point and click the ability to create and manage their own website.

Cons

I did not care for the limited customizations available, but this really wasnt a big problem for my purposes
