Squarespace for Service Businesses


THE CHALLENGE

Creating simple, beautiful websites for small businesses that want a web presence without the hassle


Squarespace isn't right for every project, but when it's a good fit it can be sublime.

If you want an easy-to-use, no-fuss web presence, Squarespace can be a great solution. It has has a quick learning curve, an intuitive interface and friendly customer support that will help with most standard questions. But, besides the beautiful websites that we can build for you, my favorite part is that you don't have to worry about monthly maintenance, security against hackers or having to keep up with plug-in updates. 

When determining whether Squarespace would be a good fit, I like to run through a series of questions to scope out the goals of the project, the client's comfort level with different technologies, as well as previous experience.


 

GOOD FIT WITH SQUARESPACE:

If you want a website that...

  • serves as an online business card, services brochure, menu or portfolio

  • has a quick and easy learning curve

  • is simple to make changes to, in-house

  • includes responsive mobile versions for every screen size

  • incorporates cutting edge UI/UX best practices

  • requires no maintenance

  • includes 24-hour award-winning customer support

  • has built-in search engine optimization

  • is scalable, to grow as your needs grow

  • does the basics (and some complicated stuff) seamlessly

 

 

NOT A GOOD FIT WITH SQUARESPACE:

If you...

  • prefer working with code over WYSIWYG

  • have experience and feel very comfortable on the Wordpress platform

  • require member logins

  • primarily want an ecommerce store (Squarespace has limited ecommerce capacity, but is not as ecommerce-centric as platforms like Shopify or WooCommerce.)

  • need PayPal integration

  • need functionality not handled by Squarespace (Whereas Wordpress has plug-ins that do almost everything imaginable.)

 

FROM A CLIENT

“I approached Larissa because her sophisticated style reflects the customer I would like to attract. 

They helped me by distilling and presenting the assets my company possesses in a streamlined modern way. The result was increased activity and new clients signed!

I found the experience to be very positive and would recommend Larissa to anyone launching or re-launching a business.”

FROM A CLIENT

“They helped me by taking all of my ideas and creating a functional website. Made everything flow smoothly and stayed true to what I wanted represented on my website.

Our patients all love our website and how easy it is to navigate through it. They love the color schemes and how educational it is. They also made it user friendly and easy to access what the patient is searching for.

One thing I liked is how she captured my personality and the essence of the office.

Before meeting with them, I found the experience of trying to build a website to be very stressful and off-putting. Larissa made the experience more pleasant and less worrisome. She had great input, she tied all of my ideas together and delivered in a way that would function the best. She made recommendations so that new and existing patients would find the website easy to use, clear and concise.

I would recommend to people who need help either building a brand new website or revamping their existing one.

She is very easy to work with and explains the process in a non-threatening manner for people who don't have much tech experience. Her friendly personality is definitely a bonus when dealing with something that stressful.

I thoroughly enjoyed working with them and love the outcome of the website!”
