Webflow is a website builder with many tools and features to help you build and run a successful website without having to pay a website designer to build and maintain your site for you.
It takes some learning to use, but once you get the hang of it you can get all of the benefits of front-end code without having to learn to code.
The difference between Webflow and other website builders like Squarespace and Wix is the fact that even though you may have to learn more with Webflow, you have the freedom to design your site any way you want it as long as you have the know-how to design it that way.
Wix and Squarespace don’t allow this level of freedom and instead rely on templates that are somewhat customizable but don’t offer the same creative liberties that front-end coding does.
If using front-end coding sounds intimidating to you, then you’ll likely benefit from Webflow University. This isn’t a simple knowledge base or FAQ section, but courses aimed at teaching you how to design a website using Webflow.
It’s easy to drag design elements around or use templated elements like tabs, sliders, background videos, etc. You can use symbols for various things across your website such as navigation bars, signup forms, footers, and other things.
You also have the ability to organize your page element structure using the Navigator tool so that all of the pages on your site are accessible to both you and your visitors.
You can use CMS data and e-commerce products to design your website. The CMS allows you to create collections, which are types of customized content. Some of these collection fields include plain text, rich text, dates, colors, and images.
You can use this to do things such as create a collection of articles to display on your site. If you enable e-commerce integration with the designer you get the “products” and “categories” collections.
You can design your product pages the same way you design CMS collections. You also get checkout and shopping cart pages to customize when you integrate the e-commerce tools to the designer.
Webflow has an “editor” mode, which agencies and teams can make use of. It allows you to check out aspects of the website, as well as change things such as the images and text that appear and use the CMS, and then pass the project off to another team member or to a client.
Anyone who wants to be able to fully customize their website without having to learn code, and those who don’t mind learning to use Webflow if it means that they can have more control over the creation of their website. If you don’t want to learn how to build your website, Webflow isn’t the best option for you.
There are different subscription plans. There’s the Starter plan for $0, the Lite plan for $16/month and the Pro plan for $35/month. They also have account plans and eCommerce plans.
Yes, it’s incredibly good for both client and team work. And if you use Account plans it makes it simple to bill clients as well as add markup to the price.
Webflow guarantees an uptime of 99.99% in their Servive Level Agreement (SLA). So if you don’t have this uptime, you can get a refund.

The product is so amazing and fun! If there is an issue it’s because of my own understanding of coding (Which I have none!!). In the 2 months since i’ve tried their software i’ve had great experience and service with interactions with several employees from their company with my issues (not related to their software). I’m not an employee at Webflow, but I do believe they are doing something revolutionary and take my hat off to them and their team!
Seriously the best thing to happen to the internet. I can’t wait to be part of this evolving technology – it’s seriously impressive !!! Full flexibility, insanely simple, this is Michelin Star compared to the “I eat cereal for dinner right out of the box” of traditional web builders
Thank you for your valuable input!
