In the past I’ve used Webflow to complete two large website gigs. One of the clients still hosts their site on Webflow (using the Webflow CMS + hosting plan) while the other client asked me export the completed site and send the zip to them to be hosed elsewhere.
Recently I was recommended to a potential third client, but the client has reservations about working with me. He owns a startup that has recently found market fit, will be growing very fast very shortly, and needs a new website. He has no technical team to do it, though.
The client is concerned about working with me on the basis that it would be built using a “website builder” rather than hand coded, and that I “don’t know how to code” might be problematic. Note that I told him I have 3 years experience using Webflow, the site can be completely exported in a beautiful zip, and that he can even host it in Webflow on a custom domain.
Does anyone have any advice on how I can turn his hesitations into confidence about working with me despite the blocker that I don’t know how to build a Webflow-level website from scratch via raw coding? Also, in the future, should I avoid mentioning to clients that I am using Webflow?
