As a website designer, I understand the overwhelming process of creating a new site. So, I’m breaking down three popular website design packages: DIY templates, Done-With-You (semi-custom designs) and full Done-For-You Websites.

Firstly: 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.

Website templates offer a cost-effective, DIY solution for creating a beautiful online presence. With platforms like Showit, customisation becomes easy, even for those with minimal tech skills. The drag-and-drop interface allows for total design control, and Showit’s mobile design ensures a seamless experience on all devices. While templates are budget-friendly and quick to launch, they might lack the uniqueness tailored to your specific business.

Most affordable option
Quick website launch
Variety of styles available
Total design control

Not tailored to your specific business
Risk of looking generic without enough customisation
SEO setup may require attention

Semi-custom design strikes a balance between affordability and customisation. Ideal for those seeking a professional online presence without the full custom price tag.  While not every element is created from scratch, the fast turnaround time and cost-effectiveness make it an attractive choice.  You provide copy, branding and images and we’ll create your dream website!

For businesses with a clear vision, established offers, and a budget to match, our custom website design + mini brand package is a worthwhile investment. This process involves building a website from scratch, ensuring every element including branding and copywriting, aligns with your brand and goals. While it takes more time and requires a larger budget, the result is a unique, flexible, and growth-oriented website that acts as a powerful 24/7 sales tool.

Designed for flexibility and growth

Requires a larger budget
Takes more time to design and develop

Your business deserves an online presence that reflects its unique identity and goals. Whether you opt for the affordability of templates, the tailored approach of custom design, or the balance of semi-custom solutions, each option has its merits. Make an informed decision based on your current business stage, online goals, and budget to ensure your website becomes a standout asset in the competitive digital landscape.
