When it comes to building the perfect site for your business, our expectation can be that we'll hand it all over the site designer/builder and receive a miracle in return without doing our part. But we have a crucial part to play in figuring out what we want and why we want it that way. Whether you're taking the DIY approach, or hiring someone to build your site, these ten questions are worth taking the time to answer before you start.
As someone who builds Squarespace sites for a living, I get a lot of questions about the platform. People ask me things like: Is Squarespace any good? Why should I use it? Why would you recommend it? What are the capabilities? Is it cheap or expensive? How does it compare with Wordpress? Is it safe, or will my site be hacked?
At first glance it might seem that the answer is obvious (a resounding yes!), but for many small business owners who have relied on word-of-mouth, marketed themselves at brick-and-mortar shows, and who use social media well to effectively build a client base, I think it is a question worth taking seriously.
