WordPress or Squarespace… Which one is right for me?

Thursday, March 30
10-11am PT


Is a website build, update, or redesign in your future?

Are you currently using WordPress but wondering about these website builders you’ve heard about like Squarespace?

Are you frustrated with all the options, the lack of access and affordability, the ongoing maintenance, the technical minutia?

In the past seven years creating more than 50 WordPress sites, our perspective on how to create and manage websites has evolved quite a lot. WordPress remains a fantastic solution for many online needs. But there is another viable option to consider, one that for many organizations may be a more efficient and effective way to have an elegant, professional online presence: Squarespace.  

Join us for an online presentation about the differences between WordPress and Squarespace so you can make an informed decision about which solution is right for you. You’ll learn:

  • what makes up the cost of building and updating a website

  • what to focus on and what doesn’t matter in the big scheme of things

  • how to avoid hidden technical and financial pitfalls

  • how to think about and allocate your resources

  • which platform is appropriate for which situations

  • what to do if you’re considering adding commerce or want to accept donations on your site

The world of website creation has been and continues to be largely iterative and confusing. Frankly, most people just want a great website and they want it to be easy and cheap. Well, “easy and cheap” is a fantasy reserved for less savory sectors. But can you find “doable and reasonable” when it comes to websites? Yes. And the information here should get you going down that road.

We hope you'll be able to attend live (it’s a great opportunity to ask questions and get advice), but if you can't, a recording of the session will be available to everyone who registers.
