Your website is one of the most important branding and sales channels you can have for your business. In less than 5 seconds, your website can either draw your visitors in or have them clicking off and over to another business instead of yours.
So how do you get them to stick around? By combining the right design and sales strategy throughout your website, you’ll be attracting your dream customers and have them wanting more.
Our Showit Templates are built with a high-converting sales strategy in mind and beautiful designs made to attract your dream customers. Today, I’m sharing with you how to install a Showit website template with pictures and videos in under 5 minutes.
Login to your Showit account and navigate to your Showit dashboard. If you don’t have a Showit account, you can sign up for one here.
*Hot tip: sign-up for Showit’s two week free trial to set-up and customize your new Showit template.
In the lower, left-hand corner of your Showit dashboard, you will see your name. Click it and a window will pop up (see image below)
The last step on the left-hand side of the pop up window says, “Add to Library”. Click this.
When you purchase a Showit template, you will be given a “Share Key”. This is a string of letters and numbers that is associated with individual templates that is sent to you by whoever you purchased your Showit website template from.
Enter your Shared Design Key and click the “ENTER” button.
Once you click “ENTER”, a window will pop-up that loads a preview of the Showit template you purchased if the Shared Design Key is correct.
If everything loads correctly, click the “ADD NOW” button in the lower, right-hand corner.
Once you click “ADD NOW”, you will see another Success window that looks like the one below.
Click the blue, “CLOSE” button and go back to the lower, left-hand corner of your Showit dashboard and click on your name again (just like you did in Step 2).
After you click on your name, you will see the same window you saw in Step 2, except this time, click “Create a New Design”.
After you click, “Create a New Design”, you will be brought to an area with Showit website designs. Toggle from “Showit Designs” to “Your Designs”
Select the design you uploaded with the “Shared Design Key” in Step 4.
Click the blue “START WITH THIS DESIGN” button
Once your new Showit website template is installed, you can customize fonts, colors, photos, text/image placement, etc. to your business and brand! The sky is the limit with customizations.
So you install your new Showit website template and customize it to your business and brand. Now what?
