Five Reasons Why We Chose to Specialize in Showit

[Reading Time: 2 minutes]

If you follow us on Instagram, you may have noticed that we recently announced that we’re exclusively designing our clients’ websites on Showit going forward. SUCH exciting news for us as a business and creative professionals — and for our clients, too!

Showit is a website platform that was created with photographers as their ideal client. Within Showit, photographers can show off their brand, showcase their portfolio, and not feel any limitations in the design of their website.

So, why did we choose to exclusively design in Showit going forward?

  1. Creativity of being able to display a unique brand. If you’ve worked with us to design a custom brand + website, you know that we provide you with more than just a logo. Patterns, alternate logo variations and other unique design elements are essential to a unique visual brand that stands out from your competition! With Showit, we’re able to bring these elements in to play in ways that will stop clients in their tracks — and get them to inquire ASAP!
  2. SEO. SEO. SEO.  Did you know that one of the factors that goes into successful SEO is the amount of time that clients are on your website? When we design on Showit for our clients, we’re always finding + creating fun and unique ways to show off content to keep clients engaged!
  3. WordPress blogging. If you land on any Showit site with a blog (pssst, this one!), that blog post was written in WordPress. Our clients that are on Showit have the opportunity to have plug-ins and the power of WordPress supporting their blog. Woohoo!
  4. Mobile customization. When designing your Showit site, we also design your mobile site. That’s right! If you want some content exclusive to mobile or desktop, easy breezy.
  5. The BEST support team on the planet. The Showit support team is beyond amazing. They’re so sweet, so helpful, and we 100% trust them with our clients after our design work is complete. Oh, and they use GIFS. 😉
