Squarespace Website Builder

Squarespace is yet another exciting website builder that provides a broad variety of features to help anyone create a site that has the functionality and features required to promote products, blogs, services and much more.

It’s easy to use and provide an in-browser building tool, meaning you don’t need to download any software and have the advantage of editing the website and its content from anywhere at any time.

There are loads of special features, making it a great comparison to other builders such as Wix and Weebly. So, let’s check out what Squarespace has to offer and how you can create your website from as little as $12 per month.

Build and Edit

When you get started, there’s no question about the audience SquareSpace targets as all their templates feature highly creative layouts that inspire new ideas and designs.

One of the template features that make them stand out is that you can see the actual website, allowing you to see how it works, the features the design includes and what you can change to make it your own. The new version 7 of the builder changed a few things to make it easier to use and include additional features that allow you to manage an online store and use advanced building features.

Once you’ve selected a template, it’s easy to edit the website by just clicking on anything you’d like to change. For example, if you want to change the font, size or content of the text, click on it and the menu pops up where you can choose from various options, styles, colours and much more. The same goes for other content, including pictures, videos and even backgrounds.

While editing, you might see a great bubble on the left, which indicates the option to add new content to the page. Just click on the bubble where you want to add content and instantly see the entire menu of options. This includes anything from standard text, to videos and social links and so much more. The list consists of everything you could want to add to your website and even gives you the option to add HTML5 code.

Once you’re done editing and want to see what it looks like to users, just hit the arrow in the top left-hand corner, which takes you to a preview of the website instantly. It features all the changes while keeping the things that you haven’t changed as well.

Settings

When you click on the settings, you’ll find the navigational features of your website, allowing you to reagent the layout in menus as well. Squarespace only allows two layers, which is enough for most users, but other builders tend to give you the option to multiple levels, making it easier for users to navigate through.

As with other website builders, the settings for each page includes the option to setup SEO, page titles and much more. This allows you to get your pages ranked a lot easier and it contains special keyword tools and features to give you the best results.
