Benefits of Using Squarespace Templates

Squarespace website templates offer a nice starting point for new and experienced web designers.

Squarespace has customizable templates that can be tailored for portfolio websites, an online store, and/or a personal blog.

The website templates are responsive, meaning the website will look resize depending on screen size of the device it is viewed on (such as a desktop, laptop, tablet and phone).

Website templates are blueprints to building a professional website. However, all templates are not created equal, and not best for all business models. I like to choose a website templated based on who the ideal client is for the business. The template should cater to the person who you are trying to sell to.

Where to find Squarespace website templates?

Squarespace templates can be found on their website at Whether you need a portfolio website, an online store, or a personal blog, you can use Squarespace’s customizable and responsive website templates to get started.

Squarespace is not my preferred website builder when working with clients, but I respect their hustle, and therefore I’m not opposed to working with clients who prefer using it.

In fact, most web designers and developers have their favorite website builders, and will usually stick to one when designing websites for clients.

At the end of the day, choosing a website software is more about who will be building and maintaining the website, does the website software help the business reach their revenue goals, and can the business afford to pay for the software.
