As a designer, it's important to be able to assist your client and guide them towards the best path forward.
Showit does have limitations on media storage size and traffic with each plan. You can read about the specific limits of our standard and high traffic plans at https://showit.co/pricing
You can help prepare your client for the correct plan by first performing an assessment of their current website, prior to subscribing to Showit.
Determine Current Blog Size
Your client should contact their current hosting provider to get information about their current storage usage.
**If the client has a backup plugin running and it's storing that backup on the same server, they can exclude the storage used by that plugin.
Determine Current Site Traffic
User Has Google Analytics:
Most users use Google Analytics to record site visits to their site. You can have them pull a report for the last 3 months (to get a monthly average) by guiding them to the total Sessions value with this report.
Please save a 3 months snapshot for Showit to review by following these steps:
Go to Google Analytics and then...
Click on Audience > Overview
Adjust the date range to cover the last 3 full months.
Adjust the chart to the Month view
Click the Export option at the top to save a PDF of this report.
Send the report to Showit support for review to help determine the best subscription plan based upon the traffic load.

Users migrating from Squarespace can find the total number of Visits by going to their current site analytics.
