Why we recommend Webflow to our clients
What are the main benefits to you of using Webflow?
Speed and ease - go from concept to live site faster than traditional tools.
From a huge collection of community made templates to simplified class and design style guide management, Webflow really is the fast solution for getting your site live. We’ve really seen this on real client projects. The designer tool is certainly something that needs to be learned to build sites but the intuitive UX and systematic approach means that it cuts down the time required by 10x. Naturally this also impacts the cost of development - ensuring budget is spent on design more than dev.
Easy to update - make changes and publish them live within minutes.
Webflow is built for non-technical users. Their Editor interface allows you to edit content such as text and images directly on the page or within an easy to use CMS tool meaning that the process to update the site has fewer steps and can be instantly published.
Creativity and animations - the end product achieves stunning results.
Webflow is a tool for designers which means they focus on helping creatives bring their ideas to life. Built in animation and effect tools allow for smooth and engaging transitions and elements are built to be responsive as standard.
Easy to learn and grow - Webflow has a University to help anyone use their tool
Not only are Webflow constantly improving their platform to address the needs of the vast community of users but they also provide excellent guides through their Weflow University that help us and our clients to use the tools - so that if you want to you can take even more control over your site. Our team are also active community members, regularly requesting and voting on new features, bugs and even community support.

What are the main features of Webflow?
Ecommerce - Sell products and services directly through your Webflow site.
It’s now easier than ever to sell to your customers. With best practice sales tools you can add functions like grouping your products into categories that visitors can filter by and include a robust search to as well. The shopping cart component allows users to add and remove products and also lets you set pricing, offer deals, and establish discounts. You can also easily add a variety of different payment gateways like Stripe or PayPal so users can complete their transactions.
CMS - Easy content management through Webflow collections
Like any CMS, Webflow allows you to upload and publish content without any front end development or efforts through simply adding it into your collections. Virtually anything can be created with a CMS so that blogs, product listings, FAQs and team profiles are all easy to manage, edit and publish. What’s even better is that the CMS interface is very clean and simple to use.
SEO & Updates as standard - Optimised to make your site easily discoverable by search engines.
Whilst many other website tools rely on plugins, Webflow has been built to reduce the need for additional tools (although you can still integrate many services as needed). With this in mind, Webflow performs very well on SEO and makes it simple for you to rank your content and pages. In addition it automatically generates an XML sitemap. In addition there is zero maintenance required - no updates, packages to install or versioning to attend to.
Hosting - Enjoy the fastest, most scalable hosting technology for your business
Webflow uses 100+ data centres and servers worldwide so that your site loads quickly. They offer Enterprise-grade scalability & security. Startup-friendly prices (from less than €15 a month). In addition, SSL comes standard, for free, on every site. So you enjoy better SEO. And your site visitors never have to see those unnerving security warnings! All this means that when you host with Webflow, design and content changes are just a click away. Because Webflow is code-free, there’s no need to bug engineers, wait for a codebase to deploy, or mess with code. You can also Preview and restore your site from ongoing, automatic backups — or create save points to mark progress and track changes.
Customisation - Webflow doesn’t have limitations because you can always add custom code.
