Is Showit the best choice for your photography business?
You already know how much we love Showit — but how can you make sure that it’s the best platform for you + your photography business?! We’d say about 95% of the time, we’d recommend it for photographers.
(But, guys, what about that freakin’ 5%?! DO I FALL IN THERE?!)
Whoa, calm down. 😉 Let’s jump in and find out, shall we?!
Showit is a drag + drop website platform for photographers. Literally drag + freakin drop. So, if easily being able to make changes to your website is on the top of your list, Showit should be looking pretty freakin’ awesome right about now.
Can you show off a few different photography specialties?
Of course you can! Now, keep in mind, you don’t want to “specialize” in TONS of niches of photography. Because, is that really specializing?! But, let’s say you offer both wedding and family photography. You can totally set up your Showit website (in a few different ways!) to accommodate both very easily.
You might be thinking: You guys, I get it. You love Showit. But WHAT ABOUT THAT 5%?! Who would you NOT recommend Showit to!?
We wouldn’t recommend Showit to anyone looking to host a TON of products with multiple variations right on their Showit site. There are ways to sell products with third-party providers (we use Shopify Lite!), but it’s best to keep it simple from a product perspective with Showit.
We also wouldn’t recommend Showit to anyone that NEEDS phone support. Their team does have live chat, email and emergency email support, but no phone support. We can tell you with first-hand experience, though, their support team is FREAKIN’ awesome. Like, SO good. They’re sweet, they’re knowledgeable, and they’ve never left us (or any of our clients) with a bad taste in our mouths.
