Let’s talk about Showit website template shops!

(This post contains affiliate links.)

So you’re ready to build your website with Showit. It’s no secret that I love Showit. Showit is a website builder that is drag & drop and so easy to use. You don’t have to know code. You don’t have to be a professional designer to use it. It’s such a great website builder and their support team is top notch.

I’ve actually used Showit for over 10 years, I believe in the company that much!

Why Use a Showit Website Template?

Showit is a powerful and flexible software for building your website. There is so much that you can do with it. So much so, that it can feel intimidating with how to get started. Showit website templates are great because they give you the visual framework to customize and create the site you want.

Showit websites can also be custom built by a designer, however, those custom jobs can be an investment. The great thing about Showit website templates is that they can give you a designer feel at a fraction of a custom design project cost. You can customize a pre-built template with your fonts, logo, and colors and make it look and feel completely different.

One of the things I love about the Showit community is all the designers who have taken out the hard work of designing a website and created templates for us “non-designers”. As someone who has had a Showit website for over 10 years and seen the iterations and evolution of Showit, it’s amazing to be able to have a place to start.

Designing your own website when you are not a web designer is no easy feat. Especially nowadays that you have to grab and maintain someone’s attention and do it well. Starting from a professional’s framework where all you have to do is add your photos, your text, and customize your colors is such a win.

About seven years ago, I designed my first website with Showit (once HTML5 became a thing for the tech savvy folks), and even then, I started with Showit’s free website template that provides a good starting point. After experiencing what it was like building my own website design, I knew that when the time came to update my website, I would use a professional web designer’s Showit website template. It just makes it so much easier!

Elizabeth McCravy

For my current website (the one you’re on right now) was build from an Elizabeth McCravy – EM Shop template. I really like Elizabeth McCravy’s designs because she builds them to convert. It’s one thing to have a “pretty” website and it’s another thing to have a website that converts your traffic into leads and into clients. And I can confidently say that I’ve seen my conversions increase after implementing this template.

Tonic Site Shop

Another amazing website template shop is Tonic Site Shop. Jen and Jeff are such talented and intentional designers when it comes to their template. Their sites are also built to convert and keep visitors scrolling throughout your website.

Use Brand Photos in Your New Showit Website Template

So you’ve decided to get a Showit website template. Yay! With any of the designers above you’ll be in great hands. But, before you get overwhelmed, you may be wondering about the photos to fill all the photo sections of the templates.

Well, brand photos of course! If you’re getting ready to launch a new website, it’s a great time to book a brand photoshoot. When I have strategy calls with my clients, and they tell me that they are getting ready to launch a new website, I always ask what orientation of photos they need and if using a template, how many photos are in the design. That gives me a good idea of what to shoot for.
