Why To Choose Showit For Your Website

Business

Showit is a fantastic website-building platform, and there are several compelling reasons why it stands out from the crowd. In this blog post, I’ll delve into what makes Showit a great choice for anyone looking to create a stunning and effective website. It’s definitely my personal favorite!

I started my web design business in the WordPress world, building with Divi, and while it is a great platform, it has steep learning curves and limitations in building with little coding knowledge. Once I found Showit, I was hooked on all it’s amazing functionalities and ease of use. Yes, like any website design platform, there will be a learning curve, but Showit makes it so easy to figure out. They have loads of tutorials to follow in the Help center! It can be as simple or as complicated as you want it to be really!

Let’s dive into my top reasons for loving Showit as a web design platform!

1. Drag-and-Drop Interface

One of the standout features of Showit is its intuitive drag-and-drop interface. Whether you’re a seasoned web designer or a complete beginner, you’ll find it incredibly easy to use. You can simply drag elements like text boxes, images, videos, and buttons onto your canvas and arrange them however you like. This level of flexibility allows you to create truly unique and visually appealing designs without any coding knowledge.

2. Design Freedom

Showit offers unparalleled design freedom compared to many other website builders. Unlike templates that can feel restrictive, Showit allows you to start with a blank canvas and build your site from scratch. This means you can bring your creative vision to life without being limited by pre-made layouts or styles. If you use Canva, you can use Showit.

3. Responsive Design

In today’s mobile-centric world, responsive design is non-negotiable. Showit understands this importance and ensures that all websites built on its platform are fully responsive. This means your site will look great and function seamlessly on desktops, laptops, tablets, and smartphones, providing an optimal user experience across all devices.

4. Showit + WordPress Integration

Did you know that Showit uses WordPress for the blog portion of any website on their platform? Yep! It’s the best of both worlds! For those who want the power and flexibility of WordPress combined with the ease of use of Showit, the platform offers seamless integration. You can design your site using Showit’s visual editor while leveraging the robust blogging and content management capabilities of WordPress. This combination gives you the best of both worlds – a stunning website with powerful backend functionality.

5. Community and Support

Showit has a vibrant and supportive community of designers and users. Whether you need help troubleshooting an issue, seeking design inspiration, or sharing your own expertise, you’ll find a welcoming community ready to assist. Additionally, Showit provides excellent customer support, ensuring that you have the resources and assistance you need to succeed.

6. E-Commerce Capabilities

For those looking to sell products or services online, Showit offers seamless e-commerce integrations with third party platforms such as Thrivecart, Shopify, Flodesk Checkouts etc. This makes it a great choice for small businesses, creatives, and entrepreneurs looking to monetize their online presence.

7. SEO-Friendly

Showit is designed with search engine optimization (SEO) in mind. You have full control over metadata, URLs, alt text, and other SEO elements, allowing you to optimize your site for better search engine visibility. Additionally, Showit’s clean code and fast loading times contribute to improved SEO performance, helping your site rank higher in search engine results.

8. Scalability

Whether you’re starting small or aiming for significant growth, Showit can scale with your business. You can easily add new pages, features, and functionality as your needs evolve, ensuring that your website can adapt to your changing goals and priorities. It is honestly so versatile and great for so many businesses no matter the size.

Who Showit is NOT for:

While Showit is a versatile and user-friendly website-building platform, there are certain scenarios where it may not be the ideal choice. Here are some examples of who Showit is not for:

1. Advanced Developers: Showit’s strength lies in its drag-and-drop interface and ease of use for beginners and intermediate users. Advanced developers who prefer coding websites from scratch or require extensive customization at the code level may find Showit too limiting for their needs. You can definitely code with Showit, but it’s not a platform where you want to build out a website from code only. It just wouldn’t work.

2. Large E-Commerce Enterprises:  While Showit does offer e-commerce integration capabilities, it may not be the best fit for large-scale e-commerce enterprises with complex product catalogs, intricate inventory management needs, and high transaction volumes. Dedicated e-commerce platforms like Shopify might be better suited for such businesses. While Shopify does integrate well into Showit, there would be little need to pay for both platforms for large e-commerce websites when Shopify (or another e-commerce platform) would be the clear winner.

3. Highly Technical Websites: If your website requires highly technical functionalities such as advanced database integrations, custom server-side scripting, or complex web applications, Showit’s focus on user-friendly design tools may not provide the level of control and customization you need.

4. Budget-Constrained Users: While Showit offers excellent features and flexibility, it may not be the most budget-friendly option for users with very limited financial resources. Other website builders or content management systems with lower subscription costs or free plans might be more suitable for those on a tight budget.

5. Users Requiring Extensive Data Analytics: While Showit provides basic website analytics, users with advanced analytics requirements or those who heavily rely on data-driven decision-making may prefer platforms with more comprehensive analytics tools and integrations.

All in all, Showit is an amazing website platform for so many businesses in many industries. It’s my go-to for all my web design clients (I now work with Showit exclusively), and know many others who absolutely love the platform as well. It’s great for the DIY folks too! There are tons of Showit templates out there, which are literally plug-and-play – you can customize it to your heart’s content. Feel free to browse my template shop here!

That’s all for now, friends!

Stay uniquely you!
