thank you for the explanation.
but with the free account you can only publish a website with max. 2 sites. so normally (if you don't have a one-page-site) you will need to take the personal acount.
$20 for the cms
$16 for the personal account
$5 for the client email management (webflow only hosts)
total: $41/Month, or $492/year.
now, i guess my case is similar to many others around here. i'm a designer who makes webdesign, with limited knowledge about how to code a website and no chance to make a dynamic one myself.
i use webflow for simple, static websites, which i export and upload in a neutral server.
for me it is easier to upload the website, configure the e-mail accounts and give all informations to my client.
this "easy" websites are on range of $1500-2500.
when a client needs a cms website, i engage a coder, which costs $2500-4000 form small and middle sites (coders don't make so much difference here), and 5000 and more for complex sites.
so, with me, a small or middle cms website should cost between $4000-6500.
the same site, asked directly to a coder, costs $3500-4000.
looking at this numbers you will see, for designers, cms sites are very attractive starting at 6500 and more... also, middle and big websites.
big sites where never the problem for us. the problem is actually, that we cannot make an easy cms website cheaper than $4000.
now, we could try with webflow cms, but the fact is, if i can do a cms website for $3500-4000. (for design and cms) but then i must charge $490/year for the cms... that's not really an improvement. in fact, this site online for 3 years would be more expensive than making it the old way... i cannot imagine a client paying this fees because i cannot code and i want to do cms myself because the coder need so much money.
i know, we all want to win money, but at this time i don't see the advantage with the webflow model...
