So many options. Which is right for you?
We offer three distinct levels of product for PE firms wishing to create a sophisticated, customized and responsively programmed web site – each with advantages and benefits from which to choose. We can walk you through which is the best alternative for your firm in 30 minutes or less.
option 1: Squarespace.com
Squarespace is website building, hosting and maintenance platform in the SaaS model. It is very effective in developing clean, well designed web sites quickly and cost effectively, using their templates and embedded programming.
Responsive Design (auto formatting for mobile, tablet)
Very cost effective
Fastest to create and execute
Many templates from which to choose
Contains easy to use interface for changing content
Least original, most simplistic
Design dependent on great photos and copy
Significant design, layout, copy and content restrictions
Limited add-on functionality
Requires Squarespace hosting and programming, so if you close your Squarespace account the site cannot be migrated elsewhere
option 2: Wordpress Template
Wordpress is the most commonly used website development platform, providing access to thousands of programmers. There are hundreds of existing Wordpress templates from which to choose, enabling some degree of customization and the addition of plug-ins module for enhanced functionality.
Responsive design (auto reformatting for tablet, mobile)
Moderate development time
Many templates to choose
Contains user back end for changing content
Hosting and maintenance separate from site, so site can be hosted anywhere
