Probably going to offend some web developers here but let’s be real WordPress websites are a creator’s worst nightmare! In fact, most web builders are boxy and built on templates that look generic and lack artistry. 2 years ago Showit changed the game and we’re never looking back. We now work exclusively within Showit to design and build every single website we work on and we’re revealing the reasons why…

What is Showit? Showit is a web design and hosting platform that allows you to create a completely custom desktop and mobile website, all with a drag-and-drop interface that requires no coding. It integrates with WordPress for easy blogging and SEO.

Before we delve into Showit Vs WordPress (& everything else), it’s important to note that WordPress, Squarespace and Wix are all great platform with a host of attractive features, particularly favoured by those looking for a generic template website. While they aren’t our preference, one could very well be the perfect fit for you. To assist you in making an informed decision, we’ll break down the similarities and differences between Showit and these other options.

Before we jump into the Showit vs. everything else debate, let’s establish what makes a good website platform. Your choice should align with these key considerations:

Ease of Use:
The platform should empower you to effortlessly update your website content without relying extensively on external support.

Ensuring that your audience can easily access and navigate your website is paramount for a positive user experience and SEO ranking.

Customisation Possibilities:
A good website builder should offer robust design capabilities, allowing you to showcase the unique aspects of your business.

Proper SEO optimisation is essential for search engine visibility. Look for platforms that facilitate easy management of SEO settings.

Showit provides unparalleled creative freedom, allowing you to design your website exactly as you envision it.

User-Friendly Like Canva:
Showit’s design and customisation elements resemble the user-friendly experience of creating on Canva, making it accessible to users of all technical levels.

WordPress Integration:

Showit prioritises user-friendliness, empowering users to not only iterate but innovate their websites with ease.

Fun to Use:

While these platforms do have their merits, certain limitations make Showit a more compelling choice for us and our clients:

Limited Mobile View Customisation:
Squarespace requires CSS code for mobile view customisation, a challenge for beginners.

Limited SEO Capabilities:
Most have limited optimisation opportunities for meta descriptions, page titles, and alt tags, hindering comprehensive SEO efforts.

Disorganised Backend:
The backend of Wix and similar lack organisation, making it challenging to locate essential elements like title tags.

Lack of Advanced Marketing Tools:
Squarespace provides basic marketing tools but lacks the advanced features necessary for a comprehensive marketing strategy.

No Third-Party App Plugins:
Unlike Showit, many alternatives do not support the addition of third-party apps, limiting flexibility in customising your website’s functionality.

I’m sure you’ll agree after reading this guide, Showit Vs WordPress, that Showit emerges on every front as the superior choice if you seek a beautifully customised, durable website that evolves seamlessly with your business.

The design freedom, WordPress integration, video capabilities, and overall user-friendliness make Showit an unparalleled solution.
