Please note: We (Kyler Creative) no longer provide Squarespace design for churches. That said, this blog is still helpful and applicable for your church!
With so many website builder options, it can be overwhelming to try and determine the best fit for your church. Some of the popular website builders are WordPress, Webflow, and Squarespace. Squarespace can be a great fit for churches who are looking for an all-in-one website builder that looks great and is easy to setup and maintain.
While there are certainly benefits and limitations of every website builder, here are 7 reasons why Squarespace is a great option for your church.
1. 100+ Versatile Templates
Squarespace features 100+ different templates from 20+ template families. This gives a ton of flexibility in both features and style. In addition, you can choose a template that offers vast customization options, or one that offers minimal options. Either way, and whichever template you choose, you’re sure to get a site that looks great and fits your needs.
2. One-Click Setup
Unlike other builders that require a more technical understanding of hosting and websites, Squarespace allows you to start building your site by simply clicking “Create a New Site.” There’s absolutely no hosting or installing required, which means you can skip all of that and start building your website within sections.
3. Drag-and-Drop Builder
You can build a great website through Squarespace without any coding necessary. Squarespace has a powerful drag-and-drop, what-you-see-is-what-you-get, builder so you can view your changes in real time. This makes revising the website a breeze.
4. Cover Pages
Squarespace cover pages are perfect to showcase information about big events like Easter and Christmas. Squaresapce has 19 cover page templates that allow you to build a page for guests while keeping the design and style of your main website in tact. These cover pages look great and help you communicate like a pro.
More users are interacting with your website on their phones than ever before. It’s vitally important to have a website builder that looks great across all mediums. All Squarespace templates are mobile-optimized by default, allowing your website visitor to have a great impression of your church from their mobile phone or tablet.
6. Simple Events Display
The Squarespace events display looks great and gives visitors the information they need. You can simply enter the name of the event, the date and time, a featured image, and description of the event and Squarespace will automatically populate their events page. This is a great opportunity to have a volunteer update the events on your site! There is one important limitation to mention and that is Squarespace doesn’t currently support recurring events.
7. SEO & Marketing Tools
If you aren’t concerned about your ranking in Google, you should be. Squarespace’s built-in SEO and marketing tools are simple, easy to use, and help you get the edge in your community. Additionally, Squarespace is continuing to roll out better tools to help your SEO and marketing.
