A good website design is essential to improving your SEO. As much as I admire a well-designed website, I’m not a designer.
I rely on professional Showit designers to create websites or additional pages for my SEO clients so that their content is laid out in a way that offers the best user experience.
I’m recommending these Showit designers and their templates based on the user experience, design quality, and functionality.
Keep in mind that even if designers have a better understanding of SEO than other designers – thank you for caring, designers! – that does not mean you can pick one of their templates or even ask them to custom design a website for you and start ranking for your target keywords right away.
Most designers know that keyword research and titles and descriptions are important for SEO, but those alone will not get YOUR website to page 1!
Find a designer who will do all the design work FOR you and use their expertise to hand you a website that fits your brand and will get you more clients.
If you can’t afford a custom design quite yet, you can hire a Showit designer to customize a Showit template you purchased from another designer or one of their own.
You can also buy a Showit template directly from the designer’s online template shop or the Showit design store.
Whether you hire a designer for a custom Showit website, have a template customized for your brand, or go the DIY route, keep your goals at the forefront of your planning.
Crystal Lee Design Studio has beautiful templates and some of the best customer service I’ve ever witnessed. She also just finished customizing my website that I attempted to piece together from design templates I purchased from Elizabeth McCravy and Jessica Gingrich.
Full disclosure: she’s my BFF, but I would recommend her any day even if I couldn’t stand her. 😉
Really, Crystal is my favorite Type A person and consistently exceeds her photography and design clients’ expectations. She’s creative, efficient, and easy to communicate with. Crystal would likely implode if she didn’t meet a deadline and that’s an important
obsession commitment as a designer.
I’ve bought and customized Showit design templates from Elizabeth McCravy and Jessica Gingrich. I’ve used their designs on my Home page, SEO Services page, and my blog. I LOVE their designs and I’ve worked with lots of their design clients for SEO. I’ve only ever heard good things from their clients.
Both Jessica and Elizabeth include thorough Showit courses when you purchase a design from them. And Elizabeth sent me a personalized card with awesome stickers congratulating me on my new site.
Professional website designers know how to make websites look uniquely outstanding with an intentional user experience. They are responsible for creating and polishing a valuable marketing tool that can make or break a business.
Many photographers focus on showcasing their best photos, which is important! But many creatives forget to use their website as their most important marketing tool.
Your website should highlight your brand and show off your style, but most importantly, your website exists to attract the right clients and make it easy for them to hire you.
Focus on creating a website that focuses on serving your clients and potential clients with a great user experience and quality content that serves a purpose.
