Just saw this from one of their marketing emails! So hey, it works.
Looks real nice and easy, can't wait to play with it.
It also makes a TON of sense for them, really cannot believe they haven't done this before.
Shots fired at Mailchimp! This is a smart move. Every website should have a retention channel and email is the most universal. Makes sense to integrate it directly into the site itself.
Funny enough, Mailchimp released their own website creator tools last year, moving into Squarespace’s direction.
Starter plan features are not catchy enough. Unlimited subscribers with 5000 emails???
@Squarespace has used its incredible Design expertise and they have made Emails looks good again. Bold and great move @acasalena #EmailDesign
Hey folks! I'm the PM on this project—the team & I are very excited to share this with all of you. Happy to answer any questions you might have!
@gangstertim Will this integrate with other website partners such as Shopify?
@gangstertim Thanks! Beautifully designed mails, finally. It will work as a separate product/pricing sometime soon?
This is a huge addition to their current offering, transactional emails, which if I remember correctly didn’t let you change much of the copy and styling at all. Huge boon for Squarespace users, and per usual it looks beautiful.
Great to see another tool focused on scalable and better email design.
That said, I haven't seen many tools (even MailChimp) provide tools to help businesses understand how to send BETTER email. There are countless well-designed emails I've received from startups (sent via MailChimp) that are clearly sent by teams that have no clue about their audience or how to send effective emails.
Proper personalization, cadence development, and opt-in practices are absent from these types of services. MailChimp did well earlier requiring double opt-ins, but I see implicit opt-in to all types of email campaigns just from signing up for an account or a specific product from a business.
Would love to see squarespace try to tackle this as this product matures.
Interesting. I wonder how (if at all) they will make it seamless/easy for users who already rely on another email campaign builder to port over their content management framework into this environment so as to not have to “start from scratch” 🤔
Keen for a Squarespace all in one solution but we are all spoilt now with automation/segmentation etc and customisable templates so will need to wait for those features. I hope they come soon!
Keen to use this. Have created sites on Squarespace and it's all very neat. If the pricing fits and automation options available don't mind moving from Mailchimp.
