Need a website? Listen to Ryan Stansky talk about Squarespace

Today’s interview is with Ryan Stansky from Squarespace. Squarespace is a web platform for the “world’s most creative people.” I got a kick out of that when I read it on their website. Ryan runs through all the neat things about the product in this interview and I really wanted this to be a resource for you. If you need a nice clean portfolio website and you simply don’t know how to get started, this is the place for you. Super simple, super easy (as in you don’t need to write any code!) You don’t even need to hire anyone. You can have your portfolio go up and have a place to blog right along side it. Here is a clean website (Fix Film Productions) on the Squarespace platform that my 14 year old son and I built in a about an hour! (REALLY!) He is a burgeoning photographer and videographer and a bit of a savvy entrepreneur. He is planning on charging these young action sports show offs to have photos taken and videos of themselves doing tricks. I am trying a new design for the Cardigan Girls (one of my licensing collections) on Squarespace. I thought the girls might like their very own website. I am still playing with this site and THAT is the beauty of it. I can play all by myself because it is that easy! These are works in progress. You can see all sorts of fancy sites built with Squarespace. Here is a artist, Jenean Morrison’s and a stylist  Studio Brinson who have used Squarespace to highlight their work.

We also added a business article to the articles section. IP Attorney, Kelli Poria discusses know when to sign and when to no to sign an artist/agent agreement.

    Hi Monica Lee! I’m on SquareSpace and it’s true that it’s super easy. My site could be prettier. But that’s not the platform, that’s me!

    Anyway, I chose SS when I first started developing my business concept because I had so much to do and didn’t want to learn how to code and didn’t have any money to hire a developer. I also wasn’t quite sure what I wanted and thought I could use SS as a kind of preliminary canvas before switching over to WordPress.

    Now in B-School, I was thinking this might be the time to make the switch ’cause wordpress is so popular. But your interview here with Ryan has compelled me to see what I can do within SS first to improve the look and feel of my site, rather than making any too big moves.

    It’s true that I have total control of my site. And I LOVE that!

    Feel free to pay me a visit. Would love to hear what you think I could be doing better!

    Thanks much for the post! See you in B-School!
