  1. Hi Dani! I do find you on page one of google for your name (that's called "branded search"). The other terms "hire a copywriter, freelance copywriter" are EXTREMELY competitive and so I'd target more narrow keywords and build out a content marketing plan that targets your exact, ideal audience. Also, your heading 1 on your homepage is "Wow your plate is full!" I'm betting these are not keywords you're targeting in your search strategy, so you'll want to think about how to balance weaving your target keywords into your headings while maintaining your copy's integrity, which is of course super important for a copywriter! Your about page does this much better (yay!) with the words freelance copywriter in the heading one.
  2. Personally, I think this would be easier with MailChimp or ConvertKit, but you can do Drip automations in Squarespace Campaigns. Here's the automation info https://support.squarespace.com/hc/en-us/articles/360002077567-Sending-automated-campaigns#toc-automations-and-unsubscribes The reason I don't care for the way automations are handled in SS is because if someone unsubs from the sequence, they're completely unsubbed. With more robust tools, you can have an "unsubscribe from messages like this but stay on my list" link and they will only remove them from the automation. And, yes, you can export your list - https://support.squarespace.com/hc/en-us/articles/360001280708-Building-mailing-lists#toc-export-a-mailing-list
  3. In my experience, we've needed to literally open every single page and post to get the import external images plugin to run. Additionally, we have had to limit how many images it imports at once to <50 or else it times out. Basically, I've had to do this incrementally to fully import images properly when migrating from Squarespace to WordPress. It's quite tedious, but doable.
  4. I would replace the current tag with the new one. Having two domains connected, you won't get good data page to page, because of the way URL mappings work in Squarespace. It will still capture the original domain as a "referring URL," though.
  5. Both @colin.irwin and @siluntz are correct here—the vast majority of the most experienced Squarespace experts who were on the original Squarespace Specialists did not join the 99designs scheme for many reasons, including the unethical business practices of 99d. I wrote about this here: https://sarahmoon.net/blog/regarding-the-replacement-of-the-squarespace-specialists-list-with-99designs But to answer your original questions, while you can do what you want to do on Squarespace, albeit using a lot of custom coding and third party applications, your needs aren’t a great use case for the platform. I’d definitely research alternatives before committing to a Squarespace development process.
  6. As a few folks have mentioned, this is not how customer accounts work in the current iteration of Squarespace. Memberspace is a great solution, though it has limitations like Colin mentioned, and there are several other third party tools as well—here’s a roundup of several for different platforms: https://sarahmoon.net/blog/membership-website-options You could even potential house your locked content in a free thinkific account if you have no more than three types of info you needed to have accessible with logins. Unfortunately, do the the closed nature of squarespace, there’s no code that can change the inherent nature of the system so third party tools are the solution here.
