Since the reveal of my two new Showit Designs, I felt there was a need to share the differences between the Showit Designs and the WordPress designs to help you make the right decision for your business website needs. Let’s jump right in! WordPress vs. Showit, which is right for you?
Here is a graphic that shows you a side-by-side comparison. I will be explaining each comparison to guide you with the decision-making process.
Customization and Ease
WordPress can be a little hard to edit for the average person because it requires a bit of coding. However, your designer typically can help you with editing. With Showit, it’s easy to customize your website. While there is a learning curve, its drag-and-drop feature makes it easier to use.
Mobile Version Editing
With WordPress, you can’t see what the mobile version of your site looks like. And there is no convenient way to make changes. Showit allows you to see your mobile version next to your website version and easily edit! How cool is that!
SEO (Search Engine Optimization) Capabilities
When comparing both WordPress and Showit’s SEO capabilities, it is a tie. Both WordPress and Showit are compatible with the Yoast Plugin, which is a total game-changer for your website’s SEO!
If you are a shop owner and sell products on your website, WordPress is the way to go. WordPress offers a range of E-commerce options for shops that offer physical products. From paid subscriptions to one-click payments, the possibilities are endless.
Showit design templates, on the other hand, are better suited for service providers, coaches, virtual assistants, and other providers who offer services and not an actual product.
WordPress is by far the best blogging platform. We all know how simple it is to write, format, and publish blog posts on WordPress. Showit considered this and integrated your blog with WordPress. What that means is you write your blog posts in WordPress and design in Showit. What’s not to love? The best of both worlds.
Showit will also migrate your existing blog posts from your old website to your new one. And if you’re not tech-savvy, that’s a huge win!
Showit has two tiers that both include blog migration. I highly recommend choosing the Showit template to choose Tier 2 or Tier 3 plan, as they both include blog migration. (Source: Showit.co)
Showit hosts your website for you. Showit will also connect your domain name to your website! With a WordPress theme, you will have to secure hosting services.
