Wow, what a journey I have been on! From learning code and how to fully develop a WordPress website through to discovering Showit 5 and designing for clients upon their platform. I decided to write a blog post on the reasons why I moved from WordPress to Showit.
Today marks the first post since launching my Showit website template shop and if I’m honest with you, I don’t think that I’ll ever go back. I discovered Showit a few years back when I had my stationery and design studio but I didn’t make full use of it due to being fully booked with clients and them taking priority.
I then discovered that I could design templates for creative entrepreneurs with ease and I’ve got to say, it’s incredibly exciting!
So, I hear you ask, why did I move from WordPress… the ‘holy grail’ of website building to Showit… a platform that often a lot of my clients have never heard of?
1: Time (really is of the essence) when building in WordPress
So my number one reason for moving across from WordPress to Showit was greatly due to time (or lack of!) Working part-time but with a full-time business model it was time to explore different options for me. Showit enables me to design websites fairly quickly (I launched the Website in a Week which was a huge success last year) and it also allows clients to launch at a faster rate too.
2: Clients can take over their website with ease
This is a huge point for me because I realised that a lot of clients I worked with found the back-end of WordPress quite tricky to navigate (as you would if you’d never seen a website before). Showit is far simpler and you can literally drag and drop text, images and graphics whereever you like. You can also duplicate pages with ease. My website shop also has templates for creative entrepreneurs.
3: WordPress is still integrated
So you’ve all heard before how WordPress is ‘the best’ for SEO and it’s the reason why so many people use it for their businesses… well, I’ll let you into a little secret… I’m writing this blog within WordPress right now! That’s right, you also get the option to add in WordPress to your Showit and it’s a small monthly upgrade (it costs $29.99).
With the WordPress plug-in means that you can still have e-commerce shops, blogs, schedulings systems etc integrated within Showit. I also have friends who are SEO strategists (the best in the country) who have their websites hosted on the Showit platform AND appear on page one of Google…
So you see Showit has so many possibilities and the design options and freedom are phenomenal. I love how I can get creative and an idea from my head can be turned into a wireframe and then popped straight into Showit with ease… there’s no clunkiness of WordPress templates or code (well, you can code in Showit if you wish!)
So sophie, who can use showit?
Showit is perfect if you’re a small business owner. Personally, I design for creatives and I fully believe that Showit (with an amazing design) can fully take your business to the next level. Whether it be with templates bought from my shop or fully bespoke done for you service. The world is your oyster and I’m so excited to be able to take you along the journey with me…
If you’ve bought a Showit template from me or you’d love to know more, pop me a message or give me a follow in Instagram because I’d love to know how you got on!
