When I first started my business a year ago, I decided to use Wix. For me, it was the most flexible (in terms of design) and simple to use. Let’s not mention the affordable price tag.
However I did come across a few issues using the platform which obviously explains the low pricing.
So I was on a mission to finding the next big thing. I tried all of the ‘web designer’ platforms like WordPress & Squarespace but I wasn’t happy using them. I then found Showit and I’m here to chat to you about why I love it and why I’m using it for my web design business.
1. You have complete creative freedom
Anything you can imagine, you can design easily with Showit.
Showit is a drag-and-drop web builder, meaning that you don’t need to know any code and it’s simple to use and edit any design. You can literally start with a blank canvas and create anything you want. There are no templates that you have to stick to or design styles; there are no limits on what you can do with Showit.
I love the fact that Showit uses canvases to create a page layout. You can easily duplicate, make a site canvas and swap the layout easily with canvases. It has made the design process so much easier!
This is a dream come true for all the web designers out there!
2. It’s an SEO powerhouse
Showit is powered by WPEngine which is the highest-rated WordPress host! This comes with all of the benefits of a WordPress website. On the site you can add a page title, meta description, meta keywords and share image for each page. You can also add SEO titles & descriptions for all of your images too!
If you have a blog, you can get the Yoast SEO plugin (which I highly recommend).
3. Affordable price
I understand how important the price is for businesses, especially startups. But I believe Showit to be very affordable for everyone and they have three tiers depending on your needs.
The great thing about Showit, is that you don’t have to worry about a separate hosting account. With this price you will get the Showit web builder, hosting through WPEngine and a WordPress blog & migration (if you want)
This means that if you have any problems, you can contact Showit directly which leads me on to:
4. Excellent Customer Support
Showit’s customer service is off the chart compared to other platforms. They have help docs on their website which are amazing and some are created by web designers which includes video tutorials. If you can’t find what you’re looking for there, then their staff are available to chat and help you 24/7 either through chat or email.
There is also quite a lot of things that Showit’s Customer Support will do for you. For example, setting up a WordPress blog, migrating your old blog and setting up your domain name.
5. Mobile Responsive
A mobile responsive site is so important! With Showit you have the ability to fully customise your mobile site design, which may differ from your desktop design. You can hide certain elements so they only show on your desktop or mobile.
You can also see both desktop and mobile views at the same time when designing.
Overall, Showit is a great platform for any business website. It is easy to use, edit and design for both designer & client. Start your free 14 day trial today and see how great it is for yourself!
