Before you build your new website, it’s important to research different web platforms to learn what platform is going to be the best for your business. Each website builder has its own strengths, but some platforms have more strengths than others. At Wellbon Agency, we typically prefer WebFlow for building high-performance websites for businesses who are not selling any products online. (If you are selling products online, check out our post about Shopify!)
In this article, learn exactly why we like Webflow and why Webflow could be a great fit for your business!
One of the primary reasons that we like to use Webflow is that we have total design control. Every site we create is built from a completely blank canvas. No templates, no themes… 100% custom.
Why is this important?
Your business is unique so your website should be unique too! Since Webflow doesn’t require a theme or template, we are able to create a completely custom solution to fit your needs. This level of customization also allows us to build a fully branded website that showcases your products or services exactly how you want.
In addition, being able to have total control over the design and flow of information allows us to control how your information is presented to potential customers then we can create a strong and easy-to-use call to action.
Webflow’s Content Management System (CMS) is AWESOME. The ability to quickly and easily add new blogs, portfolio items, services, etc… is incredibly handy, especially for people who don’t know much about websites. Let’s illustrate the power of Webflow’s CMS with an example.
Once the CMS, overview page and individual pages are designed, adding in a fourth beer to the overview page and list of unique beer pages only takes a minute or two. When you go to add in the new beer, all you need to do is add in the appropriate text and imagery to the CMS view, and BOOM! The overview page gets updated and the new beer page is automatically created. Pretty cool, right?
While a lot of other website-building platforms require plugins for added functionality, Webflow is an all-inclusive platform. With Webflow, you won’t be bothered or worried about plugins being outdated and needing updates.
Sometimes, when plugins aren’t updated, they can cause functionality problems on the website without you even knowing! Plus, adding a ton of plugins to your site can actually reduce the site speed and overall user experience.
Ultra-Fast Hosting And EASY Updates
One of the most common questions we get asked is, “What hosting do you use?” Luckily, Webflow makes hosting super easy! The standard Webflow site plan (only $20/mo or $192/year) includes Tier 1 Cloudfront Hosting, which is the same hosting that big companies like Adobe, Amazon, Dropbox, and MTV use. If it’s good enough for those guys, it’s good enough for us!
