Frequently Asked Questions

How Long Does It Take To Build?

Assuming prompt communication and decision-making on your behalf, we will have your Squarespace site ready to launch an average 3-4 weeks from receipt of the signed contract, initial payment (1/2 of quoted total) and receipt of content. Smaller sites will be ready sooner and larger sites (especially with Ecommerce) will be on the later end of the spectrum. We will be in close communication throughout the process so you know where your project stands, with several revision rounds throughout.

What other costs are involved?

Ongoing hosting fees are paid directly to Squarespace and are not factored into the $2500 development price.  Squarespace offers a few different hosting packages. If you are not using Squarespace’s commerce solutions, then you will need the Basic plan at $12/month. If you are using Squarespace’s commerce solution, you will need to sign up for $26/month Commerce plan. Transaction fees are 2.9% + 30 cents per transaction for all orders through Squarespace commerce.

I’m a vineyard that just needs a basic website. Is there a package for me?

We have a discounted package for vineyards who do not need to sell wine online or attract tasting room traffic, but do want to effectively promote their vineyard online. Please contact us for more information.

What do I need to provide?

You will be an active participant in the design process by providing logos, photography, bottle shots, videos, etc.. Original text content will also be required, although we are able to assist in the copyediting process. Access to your existing domain, server and analytics programs will be requested. We will provide a checklist at the beginning of the process so you know what to provide.

Will I need tech support?

Squarespace provides 24/7 support through their hosting services. These sites are very reliable and not prone to outages or security threats. You may purchase a basic tech support plan from Vinbound which includes up to 1 hour each month of  tech support, website updates (just email us whatever you need!) and & training. Wineries needing someone to manage all digital marketing on an ongoing basis should consider our Retainer program.

Why should I consider WordPress instead?

Squarespace websites begin on one of 35 Squarespace templates, and although we customize to your own unique brand, there can be some customization limitations to the platform. Our WordPress package is a better fit for larger wineries or trade organizations who need a truly unique website with over twelve pages. WordPress offers an ecosystem of excellent plugins to boost Search Engine rankings, reserve tasting room appointments, create a directory of locations, etc.
