Looking to build your website for your coaching or service-based business, but not sure what to build it on? Let’s discover why Showit is the beset website platform for your business. Whether you’re just getting started or ready to uplevel your brand and business online.
When it comes to designing your website for your coaching, consulting or service-based business, you have a lot of options. While that’s great, it can be overwhelming and difficult to figure out which one is actually the best for your business.
As a web designer, I’ve used all of the most popular platforms for web design out there—Shopify, Showit, Squarespace & WordPress and while they all have their pros and cons, when it comes to service-based businesses, Showit leads the pack.
This is the platform that I use for my own website and even my blog. This is also the platform that inspired me to re-open my design shop after a 5 year hiatus because it makes designing and maintaining amazing websites simple.
Yes, it’s that amazing to design & work on!
It continues to be the easiest and most user-friendly for my clients and allows me the most creative freedom when designing. That way your website can stand out from all the other people in your industry.
If you’ve never heard of Showit, it’s a website builder that offers a unique set of features that make it a great option for service-based businesses. Think health coaches, nutritionists, sleep consultants, life coaches, interior designers, stylists, pr/social media agencies (the portfolio capabilities are amazing!), photographers, business coaches and so many more.
Let’s dive into a few more reasons why this platform is the best for coaches and service-based businesses.
7 Reasons Why Showit is the Best Website Platform for Coaches & Service-Based Businesses
Drag-and-Drop Design Interface
Showit’s drag-and-drop interface allows you to easily design and customize your website without needing any coding knowledge. This is one of the biggest reasons why it’s the best website platform for coaches and service-based businesses and why I love this platform so much.
I can custom design or customize a template for a client, give them a training on the platform (which is so simple to use) and trust that they’ll be able to make tweaks and changes to their website all their own.
My clients are always in shock when I show them how easy it is and I love leaving them feeling empowered to make changes to their website with absolutely no coding needed.
If you purchase a template on another website platform, you’re sort of stuck with what you’ve got. Sure you can make changes to the colors or fonts, but that’s where your customization ends. Showit templates are completely customizable, and again, you don’t need to know code to make edits. You literally drag and drop elements around the screen, resize them, add or remove them until you get what you’re looking for.
These templates are mobile-responsive, which means they will look great on any device.
Which brings me to my next point. Showit is completely mobile responsive and what I love so much is that you can design your mobile version to be completely different than your desktop.
Not that you need to, but some elements don’t always work on mobile that do work on desktop and with Showit, you have the power to edit and design them separately so your clients have the best experience no matter where they’re viewing from!
Want to add circular images? Great! Want to put your text at a tilt? Let’s do it! Overlay it on an image? Overlay multiple images? YES, YES, YES!
Showit offers complete design freedom, which means you can create a unique and personalized website that truly showcases your work without extra graphics or coding, you can literally do it all from the design app. I love that it’s so simple to add your own custom fonts, colors, and graphics to create a website that reflects your brand and style.
Yet again, making it the best website platform for coaches and service-based businesses—I promise, you’re going to be so excited with how easy it is to actually update your website now!
Showit allows you to optimize your website for search engines and makes it very easy! SEO can help you rank higher in search results and drive more traffic to your website and naturally attract your ideal audience.

Integration with WordPress
Showit offers seamless integration with WordPress, which was one of the biggest reasons I was drawn to their platform. WordPress is the top-of-the-line blogging platform! You can easily use WordPress to manage your actual blog content and use Showit to create your actual blog design.
This allows you to have a really creative and custom landing page for your blog that shows off all you amazing content, or have new posts integrated to your homepage.
