We know a thing or two about website platforms. Building a beautiful website is an intricate, sometimes lengthy process. It shouldn’t need to be painstaking too. We learned this the hard way so you don’t have to. When building a website for our clients, our platform of choice is Showit – every time. If you’re looking to handle the build on your own, this post is for you. Building your own site, especially in the early stages of your business, can save money you might want to invest elsewhere. We get it. We’ve been there and we wish we knew the following about Showit before we tried other platforms.
If the thought of having to code an entire website makes you shudder, you can sit back, relax, and build something gorgeous on Showit. Its drag and drop function is as straightforward as it sounds, making it a prime tool for creatives that think visually and spatially. Seriously, no 1’s and 0’s required.
Showit’s blogs are automatically integrated with WordPress. This is great for SEO and boosts your chances at gaining traffic to your website.
While trying out other website platforms, we often got stuck in one place or another due to their limited customization functions which was, as designers, frustrating to say the least. (Cough, Squarespace. Cough, WordPress alone.) If you’re looking for that totally-free-to-create feeling while designing your website, we recommend Showit so you don’t have to compromise any of your wildest website dreams.
On Showit, you can design the desktop and mobile versions of your website side-by side. This is – in our humble opinion – GROUNDBREAKING since many of your potential clients will be visiting your website directly from their phones. When you inevitably link your Showit website to your socials, you can trust that your clients will land on a page (or pages) as beautiful, refined, and functioning as the desktop version.
Showit has an incredible team working at all hours in case you run into an issue or need some back-end support while building and running your site. This has saved us trouble in many cases, even while away from our desktops.
