This Resource is for you if you’re A Coach, Service Provider, Marketer, Agency, a creative or if you have an online business that you sell or do anything digital.
Are you exhausted and overwhelmed with all the platforms out there OR you’re trying to find the one that’s light on your pocket?
You need to choose a platform that gives you the best results for your business and can show off your Brand in a way that attracts people to you and not give them second doubts.
I gotchu covered!
First of all, let me tell you this.
I have been through it all. When I say it I mean it!
I have worked on Squarespace, WordPress with and without Divi, Kajabi and Kartra.
Here is the comparison for you with every platform including the pricing before I dive into How, What and Why Showit can help you. If you don’t need the comparison, just scroll down right down.
Just FYI : I am not a Showit Affiliate and this is not a sponsored blog. This blog is purely how Showit can help your business.
While the platform seems light on the pocket in terms of pricing and offers a TON of clean web design Templates, it comes with a lot of limitations both in terms of SEO and Design.
I have worked with Squarespace at the beginning of my online business and it was a decision I regretted because not only did I have a plan of action but I also ended up having a website that looked like a lot of other people or the templates offered.
I ended up having this for a few months before I switched to wordpress.
What I liked : simiplicity and ease of having a website + Light on pocket
What I didn’t like : Not flexible enough for design customization, Not a great platform for bloggers or podcasters. SEO not great.
Pricing : Starts from $16 to $46 for e-commerce
You release that when you get the cheapest that you would rather invest in the business one that costs $26 per month and yet you can’t have it all.
This seems like the lightest on the pocket irrespective of bluehost or anything for that matter, you still can’t design your own site unless you are a developer. You need to buy a theme like Divi or Elementor to design the rest of your website with a lot of tutorial help which will eventually get you frustrated if you are trying to do it all by yourself.
I bought Divi and decided to make my life easier and built the website all by myself only to change it all a few months later because I realized my design was totally out of trend.
What I liked : With Divi, the site seems so much easier, customizations are a bit of a problem. Divi is like the elder sister of Showit who belongs in the previous Generation. She is great with a bit of coding.
What I didn’t like : You have to spend a considerable time and effort setting all this up, since you have to find the right plug-ins for you to use and work with each of it separately.
Pricing : Bluehost starts with less than $3 a month and divi from $89/year.
Kajabi / Kartra
This was specifically designed for course creators and Online Coaches.
Both are incredible platforms as they have it all BUT I highly recommend this platform used as a platform that you can host your courses with and for funnels/opt-ins and email Marketing.
Here’s why not for website :
The rigidity with SEO, blogging and podcasting and for design customization.
I have worked on these platforms for my clients and I made it look good by using a TON of adobe photoshop on it. Creativity is totally limited for anything that you want to show yourself as a Brand.
With all the things said, website is for you to look like a Brand and less of a hobby-ist.
For you to be seen as a CEO and not some-one who just does something on the side.
Here’s where Showit comes into the picture.
Showit allows : Maximum Design Customization, SEO friendly because it is hosted on WordPress and like Divi, Showit is an interface for you to build your website but BETTER.
You can have your blog and podcasts on this without a headache and the need to code for the advanced features.
Being able to show authentic personality as a Woman of color.
