As a Web Designer I understand the importance of selecting the right website platform to deliver exceptional design and branding services for my clients. Showit vs. Other Website Builders: Which Platform Is Right for You?

With so many options available, it can be challenging to determine which platform best aligns with your needs and allows you to easily make changes and updates to your website. In this blog post, I will compare Showit, my recommended platform, with other website builders, to help you make an informed decision about which platform is right for you.

Showit: A Drag-and-Drop Visual Delight

Showit remains my go-to website builder for its intuitive drag-and-drop interface, enabling me to create visually stunning websites for my clients with ease. Showit allows me to bring my clients' unique visions to life, providing pixel-perfect design capabilities and creative flexibility. As a Showit Web Designer, I appreciate the freedom and control it offers in showcasing my design skills. You'll love Showit because it is so easy to update and make changes to your website moving forward. Check out the other reasons why I've chosen Showit as my recommended platform after designing on WordPress for 10+ years.

WordPress: Power and Versatility

WordPress is undeniably a powerful platform in the website building industry. While it offers extensive flexibility and versatility, it often requires more technical expertise to set up and customize. As a Showit Web Designer, I value the simplicity and user-friendly approach of Showit, allowing me to focus on visually appealing designs without getting overwhelmed by complex coding or technicalities.

I decided to move away from WordPress after 10+ years because I was finding it difficult to hand off websites to my clients without them being completely confused with how to update it. However, if you decide to go with a Showit blog subscription, you will get a powerful WordPress blog that feeds directly into your website. So you'll get the best of both worlds!

Squarespace: Simplicity and Elegance

Squarespace is renowned for its sleek and elegant templates, appealing particularly to creative professionals. However, when it comes to advanced customization and scalability, Showit surpasses Squarespace. Showit empowers users to have complete control over design elements, ensuring that each and every websites truly reflect their unique brand identities.

Wix: User-Friendly with a Wealth of Features

Wix stands out for its user-friendly interface and extensive range of built-in features. While it may be suitable for beginners, Showit provides a more refined and professional experience. The attention to detail and design capabilities of Showit delivers high-quality, visually captivating websites that stand out from the crowd.

Shopify: Ecommerce Excellence

For clients primarily focused on building online stores, Shopify is an excellent choice within the ecommerce space. I recommend Shopify if you plan to sell more than 10-20 products. However, if you only have a few products or services to sell, you can easily sell products with Shopify buttons on your Showit website. Here's how it works.

Kajabi: All-in-One Solution

Kajabi is an all-in-one platform that combines website building, online courses, email marketing, and more. It provides a comprehensive solution for entrepreneurs and content creators. However, the downside of Kajabi is its relatively higher cost compared to other platforms, which may not be suitable for every client or project. Showit remains a cost-effective choice that allows business owners to create visually stunning websites while integrating with other tools and platforms as needed.


As a Showit Web Designer, selecting the right website building platform is crucial to deliver exceptional design and branding services to my clients. Showit remains my preferred choice due to its intuitive drag-and-drop interface, pixel-perfect design capabilities, and creative flexibility.

While other platforms like WordPress, Squarespace, Wix, Shopify, and Kajabi offer their own strengths, Showit stands out as the optimal platform for me as a Web Designer.
