Squarespace provides a robust and professional platform, minimized for easy self-management regardless of computer skill level. I tutor clients to self-maintain or can be hired to update as needed. Squarespace provides a variety of professionally designed templates with a simple drag and drop content interface and the ability to customize the entire site either with basic tweaks such as font, color and other changes in the style editor, by adding custom CSS code or by accessing developer mode to craft the website of your wildest dreams.
Squarespace plans are monthly or yearly. You can upgrade, downgrade or cancel anytime without question. You will receive either a pro-rated charge or refund, depending on the chosen plan. Squarespace support is available 24/7 with response typically being within an hour. There are groups on Facebook of other users happy to help with questions or tweaks 24/7. Of course, you'll have my help too!
Below I have compiled pricing (current as of July 2017) and useful links for your convenience. Occasionally, a potential client will decide to try setup and design for themselves using Squarespace's templates. I totally understand and will still be here for you if you have any questions. I hope this page helps! :)

TIP: Like my website? I am setup on the Squarespace Website plan: 'Business'.
What does unlimited mean? You can create as many pages, galleries and blogs as you wish for no additional charge. As per Squarespace Terms of Service, sites cannot exist for the sole purpose of image sharing such as a photo site for clients of photographers. For that, I use and recommend SmugMug. Free 14-day trial. Plans are $5-$35mo, discounted if billed annually. I have a 20% off code. If you need cloud file storage I can recommend a few options.
What about my domain? You can purchase a domain(s) either through Squarespace or a third party. I recommend Google Domains, most names are $12mo. I do have one of my domains hosted by Squarespace, but customization options are very limited and not user friendly. If you already own a domain, you can transfer it to another provider IF your domain is eligible. Check with your provider.
