About a year after taking my business semi-seriously, I switched my website from Squarespace to Showit. When I first started my business, I initially built my website on Squarespace because I loved the ease and short learning curve. The templates were straightforward and honestly, it was the most ‘popular’ option at the time, so I didn’t really explore other builders. And even though I have some experience with WordPress, I just didn’t have the time to devote to WordPress at that point. Squarespace was great at the time because I didn’t need to know code or hire a developer. So I could get a decent looking website up on my own pretty quickly.
And I had no confidence in it. Honestly, I never wanted to promote my website or send people there because it wasn’t representing the business I felt like I was running (and I was embarrassed!). That’s not exactly a good place to be in if you’re trying to run an online business! So I decided it was time to change that, and I spent some time trying to customize my website. I had an idea of what I wanted it to look like, but then I realized I didn’t have as much control over the design as I thought (and I certainly wasn’t ready to start learning how to code to make those changes). Honestly, I just wanted to place a box over there and change the font on this one little spot, but couldn’t do it with the template I was using.
Here are some of the things that I absolutely love after making the switch from Squarespace to Showit:
Showit is my website builder of choice and the only platform I use for my premium website templates. The platform has a ton of great features for photographers, but it’s not limited to just photography businesses. It’s also a great platform for most creative businesses and personal brands including coaches, interior designers, wedding planners, event venues, lifestyle bloggers, and more.
If you’re interested in learning more about whether Showit is the right platform for you, I’m happy to answer any questions!
