A common response we often get is: 'Oh, like Squarespace'. We wish we could afford Idris Elba in our advertisements. But in addition to marketing budgets, there are fundamental differences between the two of us,
leaving room for both on the market.


Vev vs. Squarespace

Squarespace lets you customize basic SEO markup like page titles and descriptions, and has very basic tools for semantic element markup.

Every aspect of Vev was built to help you get discovered organically, including auto-generated sitemaps, clean and indexing-friendly code, and speed!

SEO

Squarespace offers solid blogging, event publishing and email marketing tools.

Connect your widgets to any database, and publish Vev projects to your existing CMS.

Suitable for large enterprises

Plentiful and pretty, but with limited customizability. More flexible if you know your way around CSS.

Create your own templates to streamline high volume productions, or pick one from our growing library. Customize every single detail without coding (or add the cherry on top by adding your custom widgets!)

Templates

Custom CSS can be applied to Squarespace templates and you can embed custom developed work.

The Vev code editor allows you to write beautiful React components which can be styled and edited visually in the design editor, and reused for new projects.

Code

No

Animation tool

Squarespace is template-based, with limited customizability.

Start from a blank canvas and build your exact vision in our design tool, while the code is automatically generated in the background. The design editor is inspired by well-known design systems, enabling designers to get started right away.

Design freedom

Vev

Squarespace

To summarize

Squarespace is template-based, with limited customizability, which makes it easy for anyone to have and manage a website. On the other hand, Squarespace, and other no-code solutions, prioritize ease of use at the expense of flexibility.

We built Vev to enable professional users – designers, developers and content editors – to collaboratively create customized digital products at scale. This calls for a more advanced and flexible tool while packing the platform with solutions for increasing productivity and scalability.
