Squarespace Super Bowl Commercial

If you’re here because you saw the Squarespace Super Bowl Commercial for the big showdown between Seattle Seahawks and the Denver Broncos, you’re probably wondering either what the heck is Squarespace, or what was that commercial all about!!?!

This page will answer both of those questions.

But before we dive in, here’s the Squarespace Super Bowl Commercial again if you missed it:

 

So What the Heck is Squarespace?

Squarespace is a website builder that allows you to create a website without knowing or inserting any codes.

Have you ever thought about building your own website?  I know, if you’re a “seasoned” (aka older) lady or gentleman, building a website probably never crossed your mind.  Heck, I’m 34 his year and when I was 30 years old, I still thought building a website is only reserved for those smarty pants who geek out on computers all day long!

Well, time’s changed, and here’s how.

Squarespace allows you to build a really beautiful and professional looking website quickly and easily.  Much easier than you would think!  No coding knowledge, just pick a template design, and start dragging in text, pictures, slideshows, videos, and boom – you’re ready to publish!

Check out this quick intro video to Squarespace and you’ll see exactly how powerful it is:

 

Although the video makes it look like it’s SO easy to build a website, it’s really not that far from the truth.  

Listen, no more coding required.  Everybody can do it.  So if you’ve been curious about creating a website of your own, now’s the time to jump onboard and give them a try!  They have a 14-day free trial program, so what’s the harm?

Why Do I Need Squarespace?

You won’t become the next Zuckerberg with Squarespace, but it will give you a chance to build something really cool, that all of your friends and family can see anywhere around the world where there is internet connection.

Want to write a blog about your travels and vacations?  Want to share some of your hobbies and show / teach others what you are doing?  Want to share your designs and creations?  Or even start selling some products?  Squarespace can do that for you, and they can do that with Style.

You see, Squarespace does have competitors.  But to be honest, after playing with so many different website builders, Squarespace still offers the best design for you.  Their templates are all responsive – meaning that no matter if you or your visitors are looking at your website on a normal computer desktop, or on any mobile devices, your website will consistently deliver one of the best visual experiences.  Cool huh.

What About Website Domain Name, Hosting and Other Techie Stuff?

If you decide to use Squarespace, they give you a free domain name.  What’s a domain name? It’s just the website address that someone would type in in order to reach your site.  Typically, a domain name from GoDaddy will cost you about $12 a year.

What about hosting?  What IS hosting?

Hosting is basically a space where your  website sits.  So Squarespace has all these servers where your website is stored in them.  Traditionally if you build your website, you have to pay a host to house your website for you for around $4 – $6 a month.  If you decide to go with Squarespace, in addition to getting a domain name worth around $12 a year, Squarespace will also host your website for you, so you don’t have to pay that extra fee on a monthly basis.

So Squarespace is really making life easy for you if you want to build a website yourself!

    Hi Jeremy and Connie,
    I have just come across your website and agree with all the other people who have complemented you on your site and the great information that you present here.

    I have used a company called Sitesell to build a website for my wife’s business and it has worked very well, particularly with regards to SEO. Do you know Sitesell?

    Their design functionality has improved very much in recent years but there seems to be some much more design-led sites out there. I want to build a site for my new photography business and wonder if Squarespace could be useful. I definitely want to be found by search engine rather than have a ‘brochure’ site that I have to tell potential clients where it is. Sitesell have a fantastic keyword search tool and have a review function for each new web page that tells you if it will be Google friendly.

    My Question is this. Do you think that Squarespace has anything approaching this level of help regarding search engine optimisation?

    Best regards
    Tony

      Hi Tony,

      Squarespace is definitely great with photography related websites.

      I haven’t used Sitesell before so I can’t quite comment on them. But if you are looking for a keyword tool, Google’s Keyword Planner tool will also provide you with a lot of intelligence / data.

      I think that as with all website builders, just relying on the framework of the platform for SEO just won’t cut it nowadays. If it was that straight forward, everybody will rank well, which means nobody will rank well!

      I think as a photographer, perhaps you can target an audience that are always looking for photography relevant information / knowledge and you can start educating them through blog posts or other similar material. This way, this might increase your reputation as an expert, and improve your website’s visibility through your readers sharing your website.

      One thing that a lot of website owners miss, is that they can’t just build a site and “they will come”, as they won’t! One must constantly promote his/her website to the right audience. Becoming an authority in your space / niche helps you build a solid foundation for your business!

      Hope this helps.
