    Are there freelancers / agencies out there making money from setting up Squarespace sites for customers?

          I believe you're paying them for other services such as copy writing, asset creation, branding, marketing etc. Squarespace is just the platform they deliver on. At least this is what I gather from the site.

      Sure why not? Just think of Squarespace as a competitor Wordpress in that regard. You can do a lot of custom stuff with Squarespace (though I'd imagine most don't). I've worked on entire sites at a previous agency that you'd never know ran on Squarespace.

      PS - I get that WP and SQSP are crazy different, but for the sake of being a platform to deploy a website, there are people that use them in a similar fashion to make money.

      I am. It's pretty f***ing hilarious how these videos make it seem like their service is super easy to use even by your average Joe.

      The truth is that clients have problems setting up the whole package correctly. You still need a basic level of technical "Internetsy" knowledge to make it work.

      It's probably not their (SquareSpace) fault. It's actually the clients. But if the clients knew "all about the Internetsy knowledge" then I'll be out of a job. :)
