A bold statement, we know. But, we’re standing by it. And today, we’re going to share the 6 reasons why it beats all the competition. How are we able to compare it to every other web design platform out there? Because we have done the painstaking work of trying them alllll, so you don’t have to. Before Showit came around, we only had options like WordPress, Squarespace, and WIX so, that is what we learned to use and where our web-design roots originally took hold. But, since 2018, when we first began using Showit, we have never looked back. In fact, we loved it so much that we became an official Showit Design Partner.
The platforms that came before Showit could be tricky, often requiring coding to really stand out, and once something was made, going back to change it could be a headache. Showit changed all of that for us, and we’re here to save you hours of experimenting, training, learning code, and so much more, by ushering you straight to the pearly gates of Showit.
The only web design platform you’ll ever need to know.
Let’s break it down…
Most importantly, for obvious reasons, we want our websites to look amazing. Thus, we are starting with the simple fact that Showit websites are gorgeous. Plain and simple, you’ll love the way your website looks and so will your visitors. There are endless options of pre-designed templates like mine, which are perfect for those who want a professional-looking website but don’t have the time, expertise, or resources to create one from scratch. These templates are fully customizable, so you can add your brand’s fonts, colors, and images to make your website unique to you.
However, there is also always the option to choose a blank slate that is 100% customizable to you and your specific business needs. No matter which path you choose, Showit ensures that you’ll never sacrifice a premium quality website design when you choose this platform. Allowing you to create a website that is unique to your brand, meets all of your business needs, and brings your visions to life.
This leads us to our next favorite Showit feature…
Not only is your Showit website going to be stunning, but it’s going to be a breeze to create, and continually update. You will never need to know even one line of code to create and/or upkeep a beautiful Showit website. That is a big deal. This makes web design accessible to all and opens up the doors to endless design possibilities. Showit’s easy-to-use website-building tools allow us to focus on designing (or refreshing!) a website without having to worry about the technical side of things.
Competitor platforms like Squarespace are wonderful, too. However, without coding knowledge, they can sometimes feel limited in their creative capabilities. Whereas the Showit design tools are a dream for non-tech-savvy creatives.
Although Showit makes website building and designing much easier than other platforms, it certainly still takes time to learn and get used to. That’s where #3 comes in on our list–customer support.
Consider Showit’s pop-up chat feature your “phone a friend” line anytime you’re feeling stuck. Their customer support team is an incredibly friendly and responsive resource throughout the learning process that we continually turn to time and time again. Beyond this, Showit has an abundance of help docs to pull nuggets of information from and a whole Facebook group for Showit users seeking community and advice as they navigate through all that Showit has to offer.
In today’s mobile-first world, it’s essential to have a website that is optimized for mobile devices. Showit allows you to do just that with ease. You can fully customize your mobile design, separately from the desktop design, to ensure that your website looks its best on any device. This is a critical feature since most people today are accessing the Internet with their phones; the mobile version of your site may very well be the first impression a visitor gets.
Sometimes desktop design elements just don’t work as well when you see them on the mobile version and it’s incredibly helpful that Showit makes it easy to adjust, hide, or re-design these elements as needed for desktop and mobile, respectively.
SEO = search engine optimization. Improving your website’s SEO means improving the quality and quantity of website traffic on your site. Sounds important, right? Right! So, it’s a huge perk of Showit that they offer built-in SEO tools that make it easy to optimize your website for search engines. This means your website will be more visible to potential customers, increasing your chances of generating leads and transactions.
Simply put, we want to make it as easy as possible for Google, and people using Google to find your website above all the others.
Last but not least, let’s talk content. WordPress is one of the most popular content management systems in the world, and it offers a wide range of features and plugins that can help you take your website to the next level, like its SEO and visibility booting features. So, when Showit and WordPress work together, it unlocks real magic for your website.
Showit’s seamless integration with WordPress means you can use the Showit platform to design your website, and then use WordPress to manage your blog. By combining Showit’s powerful website builder with WordPress’s content management, you can create a website that is both beautiful and functional.
