I've been hearing very nice things about Squarespace for while now. It seemed the perfect solution for a bunch of corporate "about us" websites I've been commissioned to design. Not wanting to make a rash decision about it, decided to take a couple days to delve deeper into the matter. It soon became clear that all potential alternatives fall into one of the following two categories: "Content Management Systems" and "Website Creation Tools". Wordpress, Drupal and Joomla emerged as the leading players of the former, with Weebly and Jimdo assuming a similar role for the later. Unlike Squarespace, all the aforementioned contestants can be implemented for free. Because Squarespace overshadows the competition in all other datapoints, seemed wise to take the "it's free!" advantage with a grain of salt. The most fierce competition clearly comes from Wordpress. Despite having bumped into a couple sporadic reports of users that are leaving Squarespace to go to Wordpress, the overwhelming majority seemed to be taking the reverse route. It doesn't take a master's degree on web trends to realize that Squarespace is gaining momentum by the day. The teasing rumors about Version 6 coming out soon and the speculation about an E-commerce "in-house" solution on the horizon make the whole thing even more bewitching. Since we're talking about an all-in-one "hosting + design" solution, my budget comfortably covers the Advanced price plan. I've weighed the pros and cons very carefully and, to be totally honest, can't really envision being swayed away from Squarespace at this point. Suppose I'm just looking for some positive reinforcement before taking the plunge. Would love to hear your thoughts about it though. Don't be shy and give it to me straight if you believe my reasoning is flawed. Thanks in advance!
