Fellow Webflow evangelist here with a second opinion.
Once you learn the ropes on Webflow and watch the great training videos they have you will be amazed at how fast it is. I’m more of a learn as I go guy, but I’ve found the videos very helpful.
I usually start with a template to save time on things like basic styling, and the contact forms and little things of that nature. But after I create a site, because of Webflows unmatched flexibility it is usually unrecognizable from the template.
I usually do not upcharge for the hosting fees, but if I do I just round it up to the nearest whole number. I have never had a site go down for an extended period of time and the Webflow servers seem pretty quick in my experience, so i just keep them on Webflow. There is a service called
https://jinglebell.io/ that gives you all the tools to host externally… “If you have a static site”. But they do support Webflow forms. Now, I have never used it so I am not endorsing that service, but it is out there and appears to be pretty legitimate.
To sum it up, Webflow is the best platform I have ever used and I have not had to build a Wordpress site since I moved to Webflow. Also, after they fully launch their e-commerce functionality, I think you will be seeing a mass exodus of users from other platforms coming to Webflow. If you are a single person team there is just no way to keep up with people that are using Webflow. It is hands down the best decision I made for my business.
