CMS Beta ETA? Days or weeks away?


#1

Just curious if it's days or weeks away. Would like to pitch it to clients if it's coming real soon.


Coming soon: A CMS for Webflow

I'd guess weeks, but I'd think we should remember it's a beta. Might not be ready for client work for a few months.

I'm excited about the possibilities this will open up but I'd be cautious about pitching ANY beta product to clients. It's a good way to set the client and you up for disappointment. Just my two cents.

I think it's going to awesome though!

I often give the advice of never ever ever do this. What if they're sold to it and because of a long beta stage your business with them gets on pause? Or worse... I've regretted saying too much too soon, several times.

@vincent yea that is the worst place to be in. Leaves you there panicking like:

I'd have to agree with @vincent on this one, way back I started talking to clients about some potential work when beta tools were released and in the end it never came into fruition. Ended up being a little sou with the client and I had to work my butt off as a work around.

I'm guessing its going to be weeks for the beta release but its going to be months before we see a client worthy release. Beta needs a good amount of time to mass test the product and really help iron out the bugs. It all sounds golden though so I reckon we won't be waiting too long.
