Getting Started

ShowMe uses the Freemium (Free and Premium) pricing model where it is free to build a directory using the basic application features with specific add-on options available for a fee. There are essentially three options available, and we invite you to Contact Us to discuss your project ideas or requirements:

Free*

Full Admin/User Management

The ShowMe application software is designed to be user friendly and does not require any advanced technical/computer skills. Fillable forms and upload fields are the norm with all help documentation accessible on each page.  Map administrators are able to assign other map managers and editors as required on map, category, or specific location basis.

Overlays with KML/KMZ file upload

While the built in “drawing tools” can provide a similar ability this feature provides additional capability to display complex shape overlays or those requiring advanced accuracy. Many Municipal planning departments, for example, can generate these KML or KMZ files for upload. This is particularly useful for mapping parks, trails, zoning, or specific area boundaries.

** Pricing begins at $125.00 per month and removes the Ad feeds from the map.

Whether there are any one-time initial costs associated with client consultations, graphic design services, custom features, or any special requirements can be arrived at through a discussion of your project goals and objectives.

CMS Website Development/Integration

Contact Us

Full CMS Integration (WordPress or Joomla)

This option essentially provides the opportunity to have complete website functionality in addition to a seamlessly integrated ShowMe map with map URLs matching the website domain.

The third level of a ShowMe application is to integrate it with a popular CMS (Content Management System) website such as WordPress or Joomla.

While the digital directory can support a wide variety of content, it does not have the full capabilities of a more robust CMS website. Such platforms offer thousands of “plugins” and “extensions” to further a website’s capabilities and deepen the audience engagement.

Essentially, any feature of a modern web presence can be leveraged to augment and support the ShowMe digital directory and map, resulting in a highly capable, state-of-the-art website.
