I don’t blame you! I am a Squarespace expert but recently offered to help someone who was having issues in the back end of her WordPress site.
I know someone who is a WordPress expert so I thought it would be useful to ask this person to fix the problem my client was having, namely fixing a MailChimp sign-up form on the website. Sounds easy, right?
Well, if the issue had been on a Squarespace website I would have had it fixed in under an hour. This took almost two weeks! Like, really? Problems with an outdated version of php, css that needed to be revised, where to find the code in MailChimp etc etc
My Wordpress expert friend assured me that if I learned how to use it, I would never look back. I find it hard to believe that. If something as simple as an email sign-up form can be that complicated for a web designer, where does that leave the client?
My goal is for my clients to be comfortable managing their own websites, because as we know, a website is never finished; there are constant updates and changes to be made. And this is why I love Squarespace - it is almost impossible to go wrong. And if you don’t know how to do something, there is a fantastic online chat desk, oodles of ‘how to’ videos and guides, and of course I am always here to help.
Ugh, Wordpress - a nightmare! If this resonates with you and you’d like a beautiful site, that rocks with functionalities, SEO and everything you could possibly need, drop me an email, I’d love to help.
