You’ve heard all the buzz about Showit, but maybe you’re not sure what it is. I’m breaking it down for you right here.
What Exactly Is Showit?
Showit is a website building platform that utilizes WordPress. The beauty of Showit is that you can design almost anything, the possibilities are endless. The interface is visual, so you’re not looking at a confusing admin area or any code.
Showit is available in three different plans (hosting included): Showit Website only, Showit + Basic Blog, Showit + Advanced Blog.

What Kind of Business Should Use Showit?
While Showit is geared towards photographers, almost any business can benefit from it. Showit is great for bloggers, service-based businesses (designers, coaches, virtual assistants, copywriters, wedding planners) and even product-based businesses with just a small catalog of products (see more about that below!)
The design options are truly limitless. You can see exactly how your site looks while editing it. One of the features I love the most about Showit is designing the mobile and desktop site side-by-side. So easy!
Showit gives you complete control of your site’s design
Their support is amazing and super responsive
If you already have a blog, they’ll help you migrate the posts seamlessly
You can choose from premade themes available, work with a designer or DIY your own design
It’s powered by WordPress, which is one of the best and well known website platforms in the world
There are so many amazing features with Showit, but there are a few downsides. Showit is not a great option if your business is primarily e-commerce. Online shopping is not built into Showit (yet) and the only way to add shopping to your site is to embed the Shopify buy now button, which requires a Shopify Lite plan.
Not recommended for ecommerce sites with more than 20 products
A little pricey compared to typical hosting plans
Like any website platform, there’s a learning curve to understanding how Showit works
The documentation is limited compared to other platforms. Showit is fairly new so this is most likely going to change.
