A few years back, I switched exclusively to SquareSpace. Here are my top 5 reasons:
1. Ease of Use: SquareSpace is super user-friendly with a drag and drop website builder. My clients can maintain easily without knowing any code. WordPress often requires heavy programming.
2. Flexibilty: SquareSpace's tools and functions are monitored and tested to ensure they work all the time. WordPress is much more customizable, but that comes with high programming fees.
3. Great Support: SquareSpace offers organized tutorials, as well as email and chat customer support that gets back to you within an hour. WordPress is complex and unorganized, so it can take a programmer hours to wade through the information and fix an issue.
4. Ongoing Maintenance: SquareSpace automatically updates their websites, so there is very little for us to do. It's also possible to switch templates without losing data, which is great if you'd like to update your look. With WordPress, outdated plugins can crash your site, and updates must be done manually several times a year.
5. Pricing: SquareSpace plans range from $12 to $40 per month. WordPress, on the other hand, can cost up to $15K depending on customization.
