I am currently building my portfolio with the intention offering Website Design Services. I just wanted to know if anyone else offering website design exclusively using Webflow and if so what challenges they have faced?
I do, mainly because I hate coding and other website builders (such as muse) are nowhere near as good as webflow.
The challenge I normally face is getting people to pay for the monthly costs. They expect to pay only a few euros a year or use some dodgy hosting service. I have found that if I explain every benefit that the webflow hosting provides they usually agree.
I have to say that I’m like that, I only use Webflow to build sites for my clients.
The main challenge I’ve found is to find solutions that webflow doesn’t support like forums, e-commerce (until now), subscriptions, user registration and so on. But if you can partner with a coder, learn how to code, or even hire one you can offer pretty much everything or at least the vast majority of the digital solutions business are looking for.
Hope you are doing well!
I have sent you email. Please go through that.
My main challenge is the same as @aaronocampo, I prefer to use Webflow over any other solution, and the majority of the time I can. However, I’ve had some problems when a project is in mid development, or even after a project has finished, and the clients asks for a feature that Webflow does not support (e.g. users registering for a membership). The conversation I have with my client at that point is not an easy one. It usually means exporting the code and migrating the site to WordPress so that I can use plugins to add the required functionality, or even hire a developer to write it custom.
Did you find a way to avoid such unpleasant conversations? What other problems do you encounter designing with Webflow?
Not me but a close friend of mine has used it once. He told me that it was really helpful to use the web flow for website design. Even he has also consulted the aviation SEO team in order to get detailed knowledge about the website design. I think he is now cleared with all his concept.
Webflow is my preferred solution. I do sometimes work with other platforms if the customer requests it.
