The Easy Way To Create A Chic Website
Created in partnership with SQUARESPACE
WHAT IS SQUARESPACE?
Since launching in 2003, Squarespace has been delivering elegant solutions that set new standards for online publishing. Focusing its efforts on both design and engineering, it provides businesses and individuals with all the tools they need to create a stylish website and social presence. Using a huge collection of customisable, easy-to-build templates, users can create a site that suits their brand, before opting to add extras such as marketing tools, email scheduling, online stores and analytics.
WHAT CAN IT BE USED FOR?
Squarespace gives its customers all the tools to build a website from scratch and grow a business or personal following – in just three steps…
- Create a website by selecting the brand’s industry-leading templates, designer fonts and colour palettes that best fit your personal style or professional needs.
- Choose the e-commerce tools you want to add – whether that’s setting up an online store, booking services or creating simple payment and checkout options.
- Market your business by standing out in inboxes and social feeds. Squarespace’s campaigns and social tools make it easy to retain customers and grow your audience.

HOW DOES IT WORK FOR SMALL BUSINESSES?
Squarespace makes e-commerce easy. Whether you’re just getting started as an Etsy seller or are an established brand, its e-comms website builder is designed to help your business grow. The team offers everything needed to super-charge your online store – from merchandising to checkout – and showcase your products or services at their absolute best.
If you’ve got a service business – such as a yoga studio, café or nail bar – you can add on extra functions, so customers can schedule appointments, book classes and see availability.
Once your website is up and running, there are options to add on-brand email campaigns to reach and retain clients, as well as optimise your social content. We like that Squarespace has created its Unfold app for users to create stylish social content – from Reels to NFTs – and manage all your ‘link in bio’ needs.
AND HOW ABOUT FOR INDIVIDUALS?
If you’re a freelancer, content creator, blogger or looking to create a personal website for any reason, look to Squarespace. As well as creating a visual portfolio of your work, there are templates for creating next-level CVs, hosting podcast embeds or posting family recipes.
Got a wedding to plan? Consider creating a website using one of Squarespace’s specially designed wedding templates. A great way of getting all the necessary info in one place – from the date, timings and addresses to accommodation options and gift registry – your dedicated wedding website can also introduce your colour schemes and themes to guests, and invite them to RSVP online.
Fluid Engine is Squarespace’s latest tool. This next-generation editing system that powers the Squarespace’s core website builder makes it easier than ever to control every design detail on the platform. An overhaul to the existing drag-and-drop editor, Fluid Engine offers a better website editing experience so anyone – regardless of expertise – can get the professional design results they're looking for. With a full suite of remarkably intuitive tools, it's now simpler than ever to build a beautiful site.
Anyone new to Squarespace will only use Fluid Engine. And perhaps best of all, the new editing system allows users to edit mobile layouts independently from desktop layouts, with the same grid technology throughout – with better screen responsiveness that automatically makes sites look consistent on any device size or ratio.
