I design using ShowIt: an amazing website platform built for creative control. It allows us to create a highly customized website design—and it’s easy for you to update in the future. The drag-and-drop interface is super intuitive and easy to navigate… plus, the entire platform is built on top of WordPress, making it ideal for SEO.
In a nutshell, this is why I choose to design with ShowIt:
There is so much to love about this platform. Let’s break it down:
As a Designer, I love it ShowIt for the creative freedom. The drag-and-drop interface makes it possible for us to truly customize your website into a completely unique design.
I’ve said it before: your website is quite possibly the most important touchstone of your brand. It’s the online home of your business—it’s the way you introduce yourself to potential clients and industry peers. It’s the place where you can turn potential clients into booked clients. It is SO important to make an impression with a website design that feels polished, professional, and personal. No other platform allows as much creative customization as ShowIt does (and there’s no code involved! 🙌)
This is huge. Your website is ever-changing. You will want to add new images or update your own wording… maybe even update colors or add new pages every once in awhile. ShowIt makes it simple. Like, really simple.
The drag-and-drop interface is incredibly intuitive (and it’s all visual: no code required). I’m pretty sure even my mom could do it.
There is nothing more frustrating than working with a designer to launch a custom website—and then feeling like you’re unable to make a simple update to your text or photos. ShowIt makes sure that will never happen! I want you to walk away with a polished website design that also allows for easy updates. ShowIt sets you up for success, ensuring that your web design will serve you well into the future.
On the backend, the ShowIt platform is actually built on top of WordPress—one of the most robust choices for SEO integration. SEO (Search Engine Optimization) is how you make your website known on Google. ShowIt is built to be SEO-friendly: you can easily update Titles, Descriptions, and Alt Tags. Your blog posts are set up for SEO success, including the option to install a free Yoast plugin that will help monitor your keywords and rankings.
WordPress is a tried-and-true standard for blogging. And it’s part of the ShowIt framework! You’ll draft blog posts in WordPress and publish them to your ShowIt website (don’t worry, it’s super easy!). Plus, all your posts are set up to be SEO-friendly. Add bonus points if you already use a WordPress site: all your media will transfer over into the new media library.
ShowIt’s visual interface allows you to design for both desktop and mobile screens. It’s no secret that mobile devices account for a significant percentage of online browsing: if your mobile design is not as strong as it should be, you might be losing clients. ShowIt makes it possible to customize your mobile design—so it can be tailored as needed for phone browsing. Not to mention, seamless mobile design is also hugely important for SEO.
The ShowIt support team is incredible. It’s like having a web developer at your fingertips to answer any questions. The online chat is available 24/7, and team members have always been quick to respond to my messages… plus, they’re known to use plenty of emojis and gifs to make the experience as fun as possible! 😉
Choosing a website platform is a big decision, and you may have some questions before you commit. Here are a few common Q&As that might help inform your decision:
Lastly… ShowIt is a bit more expensive than some other platforms (you can find pricing plans here), but I think it’s worth every penny. It’s a smart investment: a polished website design will elevate your brand above the rest. I have no doubts that ShowIt will help you impress (and book!) more of your ideal clients.
As you can see, there’s a lot to love about this platform! If you’re still not convinced, you can give it a whirl with their free trial. I have a feeling you’re going to love it as much as I do!
