Top 5 Free Squarespace Templates
Standout features: Eye catching call-to-action button and a centered logo, with two menus
The Moksha template is a fantastic match for businesses with lots of their own photos or branded images, since the template has interactive photo galleries and full-width banners. Moksha has a centered logo at the top with a menu on either side. You can write a main message over the main homepage image, and a CTA button is centered over the image as well. This template would be perfect for a business looking to show off its visuals with a simple website.
Standout features: Product slideshows, simple E-commerce features
The Foster template has a minimalist aestheticism. The template has a centered logo with a menu directly below, and there is a cart icon to the right-hand side of the header. Foster uses a full-screen image to display products being sold. It also has scroll effects so that products can be shown as a slideshow. This is the ideal template for an online store with a limited product range, as Foster’s simple slider would struggle to accommodate a large product portfolio.
Standout features: Bold headline and call-to-action button
One of Squarespace’s most modern and popular templates is the Bedford template. The Bedford Template has an attractive and professional looking homepage. The homepage features a full-screen background image, a bold font to display your main message, and a noticeable call-to-action button. The Bedford template implements a logo and menu over a main image and has web pages, such as a portfolio page and a blog, waiting ready for you to fill in.
Standout features: Pure and simple design, with a built-in exit pop-up and E-commerce features
A minimalist, ecommerce centered template, Indigo centers a logo in its display. There is a simple hamburger menu to the left. On the right are icons for social media accounts and a shopping cart. The homepage showcases products in a gallery format, so that visitors can click each product image separately. The Indigo theme has a ‘Subscribe to our Newsletter’ exit pop-up, which automatically comes up when visitors are about to exit the page. This feature can be a very helpful tool for lead generation.
Standout features: intelligible and attractive design with categorized product pages
The Jones template is a simple template that is easy to customize to your business. The template also has built-in ecommerce features. Jones uses a standard header with a left-aligned logo, and a centered menu. The theme comes with product pages that can be used to portray your business’ products, or its services. The scope of this theme’s capabilities make it the easy choice for a business that is looking to use their website to sell online.
