I’ve been designing Showit website templates for eight long years. My first few didn’t sell….at all. I think I went three years with just one sale….and I made the mistake of telling the customer she could pay half upfront and then paypal me the remaining balance a month later. Do you think she ever paid […]
Over the past ten years I’ve sold HUNDREDS of website templates, and believe me I’ve seen my fair share of poorly executed customizations out there.

It’s wonderful to blog about recent weddings and engagement sessions, but if all you’re showing is past client work, you’re missing out on a major way to connect with your potential clients.

A brand bio is a concise, 2-3 sentence statement or paragraph that tells your website viewers who you are, what you do, and where you are located. It should be clear, straightforward, and easy to understand. Think of it as your “elevator pitch.” Bonus – now when people ask “what do you do?” at a […]

Hello friends, happy almost weekend! Today I want to talk to the creatives, entrepreneurs, photographers, and coaches out there. How customizable is the website platform you’re using? If you don’t have full control over the functionality and appearance of your site, as well as the ability to update it however you want, whenever you want, […]
A few days ago I wrote a blog post about my old website. It was outdated, disjointed, confusing, and ultimately keeping me from making money. That alone should have been the slap in the face I needed to build a new website, but instead I kept on trying to move forward with the same site, […]
