After working with hundreds of creative entrepreneurs on their branding and websites, I know how overwhelming it is to create a high-converting, visually stunning online presence for your small business. It’s even more stressful when it’s outside of your area of expertise or you simply don’t have the time when your energy is pulled in so many directions.
Your website is the foundation of your brand’s online presence and is the digital home for your small business, so it should reflect the incredible value you offer, tell your story and compel your target audience. But putting this into action is a whole other story. That’s why I started The Template Shop filled with three high-converting, stunning Showit website templates to take all of the stress out of creating a beautiful website for your small business! Investing in a website is investing in your biz, and most importantly, investing in yourself. It’s giving yourself that affirmation “I believe in you.”
With fully-optimized layouts designed to showcase your products and services in their best light, these templates are as simple as dragging and dropping your content inside — without needing to know a line of code. If you’re ready to create a website that takes your small business to the next level in an impactful way while freeing your time and energy to get back to what you do best, here are our tips for making the most out of your Showit website template!
Your first thought when scrolling through The Template Shop might be “how do I know which template to choose?” Each template offers something unique depending on the nature of your business, what you’re drawn to aesthetically and what you hope to get out of your website!
If you’re a product or service-based business that wants to get your e-Commerce shop up and running (and increase your sales), Sunday Rituals is your go-to! This easy-to-navigate template has Shopify Lite integration available so you can create an online store that draws customers in. ✨
With editorial-inspired layouts, La Soiree is the perfect home for service-based businesses looking for a more high-fashion appeal. With space to showcase your stunning visuals and services to encourage your dream clients to work with you, this is the perfect template for wedding planners, photographers and anything in between!
Lastly, Bloom is for wellness, skincare or beauty brands ready to grow their business. 🌱 With thoughtful layouts, this template is designed for the intentional small business that wants to bloom in an impactful way. With space to integrate your shop and showcase your services, Bloom is here to help you do just that!

Once you’ve chosen your template, you’ll receive a PDF with your Showit key to import the theme into your account! I made the switch from Squarespace to Showit a few years ago and never looked back. In fact, I can’t believe I didn’t do it sooner (it definitely would have saved me so much time and many headaches if I had). Showit is an incredibly user-friendly, easy-to-navigate drag and drop website builder and gives way more freedom to customize your site so it’s unique to you. If you’re coming over from Squarespace, WordPress or Wix and are new to Showit, don’t worry! We have a referral link for you to receive an entire month free.
When you’ve imported your template into Showit, we’re here to support you through every step of customizing your template. Our PDF guide walks you through how to get your new website set up from start to finish! Plus, we made a walkthrough video here outlining how to edit your template. With everything you need to set yourself up for success, that means you can launch your new website in just a matter of days. 🤯
Working with a branding photographer was truly one of the best decisions I’ve ever made! Now that you have a fresh and modern new website, you want to complement your beautiful layouts with stunning visuals to make the most out of your template.
Professional photography reflects the personality of your small business, the quality of work you can achieve and your branding. Plus, you’ll be able to double up your images for your social media, ads, newsletters and more — not just your new website — so it’s more than worth it!
Take this as your sign to book a beautiful studio that matches your vibe and a brand photographer that will make you fall in love with your small business all over again. ♥️
Consistent branding is key to making the most out of your website template: it builds brand loyalty, makes your small business more memorable and draws your dream audience in. 👏🏼 Your website is the home of your business, so you want to make sure it is an extension of your brand.
Lucky for you, all three of our Showit website templates are completely customizable — which means simply import your brand fonts, graphics, logos and colour palette and you’re good to go! If you have worked with a branding designer, you should have all of these elements on file, but if you’re thinking of refreshing your brand to match your new website, book your free discovery call with us to see how we can breathe new life into your branding.
I hear it all the time: you don’t consider yourself a writer and simply can’t find the time to sit down and write a blog! But hear me out: a blog is an incredible avenue to engage with your target audience in a new way, get traffic to your site and improve your SEO — so it’s kind of worth it.
All of our templates come with a dedicated blog page and a sample blog post waiting to be filled with all of those ideas you’ve been brainstorming in your notebook but haven’t taken the time to sit down and write. If you’re stuck on ideas, think about what your audience wants to hear from you and what unique value you can offer through your posts! A few ideas to kickstart your inspiration include client features, behind-the-scenes of your recent projects, educational posts and DIYs.
I totally get it! Sometimes it’s best to leave it to the experts. When you add your template to your card, add on our customization concierge at checkout!
