Clients benefits are the following:
instant updates/changes on his website. ( you can literally add a section in minutes) half an hour a full page.
they can easily edit content themselves with the editor if they have a marketing/branding department peeps that keep website fresh. or you could do that job for them
Yes, it’s more expensive the hosting on webflow, but have you considered how much time it takes for a developer to code that change, or how much they charge for each change?
There’s tons of ways on how you can pitch this to your client to undersdant the benefits. You have a global CDN, which means site gets quickly loaded wherever country website gets accessed from.
Always think of time they are saving by using this instead of crappy css coding and wordpress templates. yesterday i found on a website, recaptcha v1, couldn’t send a bloody hell contact form. so i called the webdev to let him know. list can continue.
In short, it all resumes to the time you’re saving for them. I finished a website in 3 days (landing page+ few pages with content) for a client (startup business), and he was so happy and impressed with the speed i delivered. They wanted to look legit, online presence with their business as well as they needed approval from the government for their claims so when i had to do small content changes based on the government feedback, took me literally 5 min to publish and changes to be live on the page. Charged them 1 grand for the website, started with a free template but ended up creating a custom webpage for them.
Believe me, when client sees how much time they saving ( time is money) they will not even care for that 20-30-50 bucks per month. They spend on parking in a week that money.
Also you should include your costs in invoice from beginning ( stock images, hosting…etc) Don’t be afraid, others charge 2-10 grand for a website.
