Like most humans in our generation, I’m used to learning and loving new technology. Whether it’s video calls at my fingertips or food delivery straight to my door, I’m all about enthusiastically embracing new inventions (and sharing my thoughts on what I feel is something worth fan-girling over!)
As for Showit? I’ve definitely popped this application into the latter category. If you’re interested in reading why I love it so much, head on over here to browse my article on why I chose Showit to develop my own site on.
But if you’re still wondering about the basics – like what Showit even is – then stick around.
In this article, I’m going to answer some of the most common questions I get asked about Showit, so you can decide whether it’s a hit or a miss for you.
Make yourself at home, and let’s get to know my home on the Internet!
Showit is a drag-and-drop website builder.
Drag-and-drop refers to Showits’ (awesome) home-made software that allows you to literally drag design elements and drop them exactly where you want on the page – even to customize your mobile site. This is a HUGE deal as it makes designing your site super easy.
When Showit first launched, it was marketed exclusively for photographers (I think mainly because it showcases creative work REALLY well!), but nowadays it’s rightly being used by everyone from designers like me and copywriters like my friend, Cass, to entrepreneurs in many fields!
Nope! Showit is completely code-free and beginner-friendly. If you’ve heard of Squarespace before, it works on the same drag-and-drop functionality, but, in my opinion, it’s even better with far more creative freedom. And unlike Squarespace (where you’ll need to code if you want to achieve Showit-levels of creative freedom), Showit requires zero coding knowledge. You can literally edit and perfect every pixel on your page.
If you were to choose Showit, it’d replace your existing website platform (like WordPress, Squarespace, Shopify, Wix etc.)
Note: If you’re building an e-commerce site, you’ll need to host the e-commerce element using another platform’s functionality. For example, by using a Shopify plugin. And if you upgraded to the blog subscription, your blog would be hosted on WordPress (but the design would be accessible on Showit).
Nope, Showit’s subscription includes hosting, so all you need to do is BYO web address, creativity, and content.
For a monthly fee, you’ll get access to:
Absolutely not. Even if you couldn’t spot a line of code if it bought a coffee, you’ll feel equipped and empowered to create your site on Showit.
You can, but you don’t have to. Showit also allows you to implement professional templates, so you start with a pro design (instead of a blank page). These templates have been created by Showit specialists and are a great budget-friendly option.
Psst – if you’re wondering whether you should DIY your Showit site or go pro, read this article.
There sure are – you’re looking at one! I design Showit websites for creative wanderers just like you. Head on over here to view my portfolio.
Of course! The site you’re on right now – aka mine – was made on Showit. You can also head on over to Showit’s own showcase to soak up more inspo.
