Upgrading to a Showit website was one of my best business decisions – and I recommend it for all my clients. Here are a few reasons: Showit is easy to use, you can make your own edits and updates, it connects to your WordPress blog, and it’s great for SEO.
Many of my clients creative entrepreneurs, and with so much design freedom, Showit makes the perfect websites for creatives.
This post is a roundup of 17 reasons you’ll want to choose a Showit website for your business.
I know – 17 is a lot… but I could go on and on! I did you a favor and grouped the list into the most popular categories to make it easier to skim 😉
I’ve designed websites for creatives, websites for coaches, and websites for all kinds of online entrepreneurs like healers, energy workers, copywriters, content creators, and social media managers. The thing they all have in common is a desire to have a uniquely gorgeous website that reflects their business and brand.
As a designer – Showit gives me the creative freedom to design websites that capture your unique style so you can stand out from the crowd and connect with your dream clients.
As a client – Showit lets you take your new design and run with it. You will be able to make changes on your own. Everything from simple edits like swapping a photo, to adding a new page. Showit is intuitive and easy to use, even if you’re more creative than techy.
If you care about aesthetics, and you want a website that’s easy to use, you’re going to love Showit.
You want to stand out from the crowd with a high-quality, one-of-a-kind website, and that can be difficult to achieve with template based website builders like Squarespace and Wix. The last thing you want is a website that looks like everyone else’s.
Almost every time I fall in love with a website design, it turns out to be designed on Showit! Showit lets you create a site that’s specifically designed to showcase your brand and connect with your audience. A premium website is the perfect way to elevate your brand.
I love that Showit is a simple drag and drop platform that never requires you to use code. This means that I can design or customize a site for you super fast… AND you can learn to do it yourself in an afternoon or two!
It also means that you can have a super unique custom designed website, and you won’t ever have to deal with learning CSS code to update and maintain your own website!
If you’ve ever used Canva or Photoshop, then you’ll feel instantly at home in the Showit platform. When I say you can learn to use Showit in an afternoon or two, I’m not exaggerating!
You add images, text, and shapes to the page with the click of a button, and you can place them exactly where you want on the page by dragging and dropping. Most of my clients are creatives, and they love how easy it is to learn to use Showit.
My guess is that you’re a super creative person who changes your mind a lot… Showit is perfect for you! It’s easy to change every element on your site. Move elements around, resize or update fonts, change colors, swap photos. Unlike other platforms like Squrespace and Wix, you aren’t limited by blocks or templates that can’t be changed.
Showit gives you total control over your design. As a creative entrepreneur, you’ll love the flexibility and freedom to make your website look exactly how you envision it.
I love that every website I design is truly unique and personalized for every client. Showit is the only web design platform that allows this much creative freedom (and also makes it easy!)
Displaying your instagram feed on your website is a great way to show your personality, reinforce your brand, and make your website more dynamic. And it’s so easy to do with the new Showit social grid feature! All you need to do is connect to your instagram account, and you start sharing your instagram feed directly on your website.
There is a reason that Showit websites are so popular with photographers. Showit is unparalleled when it comes to showcasing photos on your website. There are a variety of gallery styles that are (of course) customizable to showcase your work.
But even if you’re not a photographer you’ll love how Showit makes your website photos look amazing. It’s super easy to resize and reposition your photos – and you’ll love being able to use full-screen background photos without cutting off your head or having words end up in front of your face!
Have you been captivated by websites with a gorgeous video background on a section of the page? Me too! Video backgrounds can make your website truly unique and can add a very premium feel to a simple design.
Showit makes it super easy to add a background video directly to your website. You can also embed videos from other platforms like YouTube or Vimeo, so if you want to add a welcome video, or video tutorial library, or video testimonials – you can!
Digital product shops are a great way to expand your business. You can design a shop page on your Showit website and integrate a shopping cart like Shopify Lite or Thrivecart to handle the sales. I love that you can keep your shop page totally on brand and make it as beautiful as the rest of your website.
If you’re not ready to work with a professional Showit website designer but you want a premium, high-end, designer-quality website, you can always start with a Showit website template.
With a Showit template, you don’t need to start from scratch. You can choose a template that fits your business goals and then customize it completely to reflect your business and brand.
Showit’s templates are an amazing way to create a premium website even if you don’t have a huge budget. With Showit’s design flexibility you never have to worry about your website looking generic or the same as everyone else.

That means that all of the behind-the-scenes technical stuff is taken care of for you.
I’ve never met a creative entrepreneur who loves dealing with challenging tech maintenance.
No one wants to worry about things like plugins, backups, bug fixes, or site crashes! (If you’ve ever had a WordPress site, you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about. 😖)
With Showit you just design your website and connect it to your domain. The back end technical details of your website are all handled by Showit. Whew!
We know it’s super important for our audience to have an amazing experience on our mobile website.
It’s the worst to land on a mobile site and see words plastered over faces, fonts that are too small to read, or design elements that are awkwardly huge. Don’t worry – that never happens with your Showit website!
Showit lets you edit the mobile version of your website independently from your desktop site so it’s always beautifully optimized for your visitors. That means you can hide sections that don’t translate well or you can completely redesign a layout to make it user friendly and gorgeous on mobile. This is one of the most valuable features of Showit for creative entrepreneurs!
Showit changed my mind about WordPress! Let’s be real – WordPress is pretty intimidating. It requires serious technical skills to even set up a blog… not to mention how difficult it can be to change the design. 🤔
That’s where Showit comes in. Showit makes it super easy to have a beautifully designed WordPress blog! Showit and WordPress work together hand in hand. I can easily design a whole blog site in Showit, and then just connect to the WordPress blog!
It’s the best of both worlds. You get the powerful WordPress SEO capabilities, plus the easy to use Showit design platform. You can make your blog look exactly how you want without having to learn any complicated tech (or hire someone to do it for you!)
Your Showit website includes easy to use SEO settings for pages, content and images. So in addition to the SEO boost you get by connecting your WordPress blog to your Showit website, you can also optimize every page of your website to have the best chance of ranking highly in Google search results.
I also want to talk about the amazing customer support team at Showit. They make website setup a breeze – even the technical parts like connecting your domain. The Showit support team will even move your blog over to your new website for you from WordPress or Squarespace!
And for quick questions – you can chat directly with a real live person right inside the Showit platform. I use the chat feature all the time. It’s super nice to know that you never have to stay ‘stuck’ with an issue or question.
The Showit User facebook group is active, friendly, and a fun way to connect with other Showit website users. It’s a great place to ask a quick question, or get ideas from other Showit enthusiasts.
If you’ve read everything on this list, you’re probably loving the idea of launching your own Showit website… and I bet you’re wondering about Showit’s pricing.
You’re about to be pleasantly surprised! Showit pricing is very comparable to other popular platforms. For example – let’s compare Showit to Squarespace pricing:
