You were so excited to launch your first website. You hoped it would be the ticket to “feeling like a real business owner” and getting the results you’ve dreamed of. But creating a website ended up being harder than you anticipated. Instead of a beautiful, strategic extension of your heart, you ended up with a site that’s decent, but not all you hoped for. And trying to make even simple changes to it feels like more hassle than it’s worth. I know how you feel. Even as a designer, I used to find myself frustrated with the limiting website options out there. Then, I discovered Showit, and I was able to experience a whole new level of ease and creative freedom! I want you to be able to experience freedom, confidence, and results when it comes to your website, too. Get cozy, I’m about to share why Showit’s such a big deal, and help you decide if Showit is right for your website needs.
You spend most of your days creating and sharing your heart with others. A restrictive website template that puts your brand in a box just won’t do. Showit was originally created with photographers in mind. It’s now the platform of choice for creatives and socialprenuers of all kinds. Life coaches, food bloggers, nonprofits, copywriters, and event planners choose Showit. The creative freedom allows you to share your heart, creating a site that’s unique to your brand’s personality.
When I first discovered Showit, I was blown away by the fact that I could do whatever I wanted. The only limit to my website design was my imagination. Refreshing, right?!
You don’t have to be a tech wiz to edit a Showit site. I have a design degree, but I don’t know how to code. I’ve never needed to when creating beautiful, fun client sites. Believe me when I say that using Showit is easy.
You can purchase a Showit template (which are completely customizable, by the way). Or, hire a designer to bring your vision to life. When I’m working with custom clients, it’s my goal to equip them with the knowledge to edit their own site. When we finish the design process, I train them on how to use Showit. No more having to outsource help just to change the color of a heading or swap out a photo!
With Showit, making changes to your website is as simple as clicking and dragging. While drag and drop builders get a bad rep for being cookie cutter, Showit maintains ease without being restrictive. You can quickly make updates, so you can get back to doing what you love.
“But can Showit do XYZ?” is a question that I get a lot. (I actually created a page all about Showit to answer all of your burning questions).
In particular, business owners who are interested in switching to Showit often have questions about its blogging features. They’re usually switching from Squarespace or WordPress and don’t want to lose their content! As you may have heard, WordPress is a leader in the blogging and website industry. But WordPress sites are also notorious for being hard for the average business owner to edit.
The first Showit site that I designed was for Angela Monica. She was so frustrated with her WordPress site that she was ready to give up blogging. If you’re currently struggling with a WordPress site, know that you’re not alone.
But there’s hope. Showit integrates with WordPress to offer that world-renowned blogging power, without the hard to edit site. With Showit, your website is built using their easy, drag and drop editor. Blog posts are written in a separate WordPress admin. From your WordPress admin, you’ll also be able to access plugins to help with things like SEO and Pinterest. It’s the best of both worlds!
Woohoo! You’ve just learned a little bit about what makes Showit unique. Are you ready to decide if it’s the right website builder for your business? While other details, like pricing, matter as well, it’s the creative freedom, easy editing, and WordPress integration that usually lead people to join the Showit family.
