Are you wondering if Showit is the website platform for you? I made the switch and have now joined the ranks of raving fans. Just in case you are not familiar, Showit is a drag and drop website builder which gives you full creative freedom without any need for coding. Designed for photographers and creative professionals in mind.
I created my original website on WordPress with a Divi Theme and I was getting frustrated with some functionalities and limitations. I had heard the hype about Showit and I was intrigued to discover more and decided to make the switch! From that moment I was seriously obsessed! I couldn’t believe how easy it was! Let’s dive in with the top reasons to love Showit for website design.
1. EASY DESIGN INTERFACE
The top reason has to be the ease of use with the drag and drop builder. As with any platform there is always a learning curve to start with but if you are already used to graphic design platforms such as Canva or Photoshop you will love the easy user interface and design freedom. Changing fonts, colors, shape size etc can all be done in a matter of clicks. I love that you can tweak anything on the site to get it exactly how you want it. Absolutely no coding required which makes it easy to perform any updates after your site has been built.
2. SEPARATE MOBILE DESIGN
Instead of your website being “mobile responsive” like many other web design platforms, Showit has a completely separate area for you to create your mobile design. You can even add/remove elements that wont be on your desktop version of your website. Again, so much creative freedom!
3. INCREDIBLE CUSTOMER SUPPORT
The customer support is incredible – there are many articles and videos for guidance, as well as a responsive chat service and even a facebook group on hand to help you if you get stuck. The fabulous customer support team even help with connecting your domain and migrating your blog which saves so many headaches!
4. WORDPRESS FOR BLOGGING
Showit integrates with WordPress for blogging. This is huge! Your blog posts will be housed in WordPress which is one of the best blogging platforms, but the blog design will be in Showit. This might seem a bit confusing but it really is a straightforward concept. You get an SEO friendly, powerful blogging platform with the design freedom of Showit on the front end. As mentioned above the lovely Showit folks will also help with migrating your existing blog over.
5. SO MANY BEAUTIFUL TEMPLATES
Showit was originally developed for photographers and creatives in mind but there are so many stunning templates that could be suited to many types of business. Ranging from the whimsical, soft and romantic, to more bold statement pieces. You name it, there is a template for every style and budget.
6. BUILT IN SEO
SEO can feel intimidating but with Showit’s built in SEO tools helping you break down titles, descriptions and keywords, it makes it very easy to optimize your site.
7. HOSTING INCLUDED
No need to mess about with a hosting plan as Showit includes this in the pricing plan. All you need to worry about is getting a domain (which Showit can help connect!) Easy peasy!
