"Professional web design in the cloud."

What do you like best?

Something that I love about this service, is the predesigned templates that it contains, the truth is they are very professional, and they comply with all the necessary standards to create professional and amazing websites, this tool, despite running on the web, has all the necessary tools that a web designer needs, in this application as with any other web design software, you can start the design from scratch, and have all the necessary tools, to give all the desired characteristics to the design in which is working, the workspace I like very much, I feel very comfortable working on this application, I feel that I have all the tools at my disposal, and I can find them more easily, which helps me to make my designs more easily.

What do you dislike?

To adapt to this system of work, it needs a little time, to go from the applications of web design, that we were accustomed in past years, to this type of systems is a bit difficult, and more about the old designers, that we were already comfortable in another type of development platforms, so the learning curve in this type of web tools, can take a little time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

is an application that has all the necessary features, to make all kinds of web designs, templates that are on the site, are very professional, beautiful, and help you make the work easier, fully editable, an environment of very complete design in the cloud.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This type of tools, not only decrease the time of work in web development, in addition to this, you should not invest so much money on super desktop computers, since everything is really done on the web, and you only need a good equipment so that the navigation is perfect, but the rest, are already unnecessary expenses, so you only have to pay the monthly fee for handling the application, and you should not think every year about the renewal of computers, this seems like something incredible, for people and small businesses.

"Webflow is relatively new in its use, to create and design websites, using templates."

What do you like best?

Advantages: 1) Intuitive in its use, 2) Responsive or adaptable to any device (PC, mobile, ...) or OS, 3) Very complete control panel and that allows an excellent personalization making it extremely pleasant, in its two views available, the simple and the advanced, 4) Within that same panel you can use all the functions and features you have and 5) Easily customize all your elements (size of letters and images, etc.) to adjust your website.

What do you dislike?

Disadvantages: 1) Free plan is limited, especially to edit CSS and HTML, to personalize you need to have the plan paid, 2) It is not for novice users, 3) The templates, for the most part, are very simple and 4) Despite that its load is not heavy, it has templates that take longer than others to load.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is recommended to have intermediate knowledge in the use of web design tools.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Webflow is a very easy to use tool, mainly because its use or free profile is online, besides it has a work control view quite nice to look at and it is not so heavy to load its predefined templates.

"Crea sitios web geniales con webflow profecionalmente"

What do you like best?

Son totalmente compatibles con HTML5 y CSS y crean código limpio en comparación con los competidores. Puedes hacer cualquier cosa que desees, rápida y fácilmente. Arrastra los componentes a la página, configura las propiedades y ve inmediatamente el efecto. Tienen animación CSS, grilla, y paralaje. Tienen un backend de base de datos, por ejemplo para almacenar productos para el comercio electrónico. También me gusta que si está creando sitios web para su cliente, facturarán automáticamente a su cliente y le agregarán sus ganancias. Tienen un excelente y divertido video entrenamiento y responden rápidamente a las preguntas. Permiten exportar HTML y CSS, si tiene el tipo de cuenta correcto, no la cuenta de gama baja. Tienen hosting rápido. Realmente me gusta que este software sea utilizable por un principiante avanzado que entiende html y css básico, pero está dirigido a un profesional, con características como flex y paralaje, y es fácil de usar. Una de las características realmente excelentes de Webflow es que responde y al hacer clic en los iconos de escritorio, tableta y teléfono en la parte superior de la pantalla, puede ver cómo se verá la página. No solo eso, sino que puede modificar lo que se mostrará para cada dispositivo, USTED decide qué programas se muestra y dónde para cada tipo de dispositivo. Increíble, mucho mejor que los competidores en esta área. Dependiendo del tipo de cuenta, puede tener múltiples proyectos y páginas dentro de cada proyecto. Realmente está configurado para que un profesional sea productivo. Webflow tiene una API REST para modificar los productos almacenados en su base de datos. pero puede modificar lo que se mostrará para cada dispositivo, USTED decide qué programas y dónde para cada tipo de dispositivo.

Realmente está configurado para que un profesional sea productivo. Webflow tiene una API REST para modificar los productos almacenados en su base de datos.

What do you dislike?

Lo que no me gusta de Webflow es que, para la mayoría de las personas, tendrá que alojar con ellos. Si está utilizando su base de datos back-end para productos, no puede moverla a otra plataforma de alojamiento, excepto como un archivo delimitado por comas CSV. Clunky Si configura formularios no puede exportarlos. Si todo lo que está usando es el estándar de HTML5 y CSS, entonces está bien, y se exportará, pero no creo que sea típico de la mayoría de los usuarios. Me he dado cuenta de que parece que reinician sus servidores aproximadamente a diario. Esto es bueno porque no he experimentado problemas y mal porque el alojamiento y el diseño no están disponibles por unos minutos. Otras compañías parecen lograr esto sin caer en absoluto, y creo que deberían hacerlo también. Aunque Webflow realiza el alojamiento para sitios web creados con Webflow y utiliza el alojamiento de Amazon, Esta no es una plataforma de alojamiento típica, es solo para sitios web creados con Webflow. No puede importar sitios web desde otras plataformas de alojamiento. Aunque están probando beta un carrito de compras para el comercio electrónico, en este momento tendrá que conectarse a un carrito de compras de terceros. Compruebe si este sigue siendo el caso.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Le recomiendo que pruebe Webflow si no le importa alojar con Webflow. Si desea utilizar una base de datos, use Webflow para la creación de prototipos y luego expórtela a alguna otra plataforma de alojamiento que utilice una base de datos estándar.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Este producto es excelente si está diseñando sitios web de alta calidad con características de alta calidad como responsive, flex y paralaje, por lo que es ideal para desarrolladores de sitios web y no profesionales avanzados. Ya que no me gusta que me obliguen a usar su alojamiento o exportar datos como CSV, lo uso como una herramienta de creación de prototipos de alta calidad: haga todo el HTML5 y CSS en Webflow, de manera rápida y fácil, luego exporte a una plataforma de alojamiento que tenga una base de datos estándar de back-end. Alternativamente, cuando solo estoy usando una página web estática, entonces la alojo con Webflow ya que puedo moverla en cualquier momento.

"Webflow makes designing beautiful websites, quick and easy, especially for professionals"

What do you like best?

They are fully HTML5 and CSS compliant and create clean code compared to competitors. You can do anything you desire, quickly and easily. You drag components onto the page, set properties, and immediately see the effect. They have CSS animation, grid, and parallax. They have a database backend, for example for storing products for e-commerce. I also like that if you are building websites for your client, they will automatically bill your client and add your profit. They have excellent and fun video training and respond fast to questions. They permit exporting the HTML and CSS, if you have the right account type, not the low end account. They have fast hosting. I really like that this software is usable by an advanced beginner that understands basic html and css, but is aimed at a professional, with features like flex and parallax, and is easy to use. One of the really great features of Webflow is that it is responsive and by clicking the icons for desktop, tablet, and phone at the top of the screen you can see what the page will look like. Not only that, but you can modify what will show for each device, YOU decide what shows and where for each device type. Amazing, much better than competitors in this area. Depending on the account type, you can have multiple projects, and pages within each project. It really is set up for a professional to be productive. Webflow has a REST API to modify products stored in their database.

What do you dislike?

What I dislike about Webflow is that, for most people, you will need to host with them. If you are using their backend database for products, then you can't move it to another hosting platform except as a CSV comma delimited file. Clunky. If you set up forms you can't export them. If all that you are using is the standard HTML5 and CSS then you're ok, and it will export, but I wouldn't think that is typical of most users. I have noticed that it appears they reboot their servers approximately daily. This is good because I haven't experienced problems, and bad because the hosting and design is not available for a few minutes. Other companies seem to accomplish this without going down at all, and I think they should, too. Althought Webflow does hosting for websites created with Webflow, and uses Amazon hosting, this is not a typical hosting platform, it is only for websites created with Webflow. You cannot import websites from other hosting platforms. Although they are beta testing a shopping cart for ecommerce, at this time you will have to connect to a third party shopping cart. Check to see if this is still the case.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I highly recommend that you try Webflow if you don't mind hosting with Webflow. If you want to use a database then use Webflow for prototyping and then export it to some other hosting platform that uses a standard database.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This product is superb if you are designing top quality websites with high-end features like responsive, flex, and parallax, so it is great for website developers and advanced non-professionals. Since I do not like being required to use their hosting or exporting data as CSV, I use it as a high-end prototyping tool - do all the HTML5 and CSS in Webflow, fast and easy, then export it to a hosting platform that has a standard database back end. Alternatively, when I'm just using a static webpage, then I host it with Webflow since I can move it anytime.

"If you've got the cash, this is the WYSIWYG web creator you've been looking for"

What do you like best?

It's easy to create exactly what you want and the interface is intuitive. I built my own site from scratch without resorting to a template. I tried to accomplish the same in a variety of places and couldn't pull it off.

What do you dislike?

The pricing is a little steep. You get hit from two directions. For the hosting and the site... plus there's deeper levels to each. It would have been nice to have them rolled together into a more attractive price tag like most of the competition.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you understand the pricing before you commit. It's not inexpensive to maintain a site on this platform.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Get a site up for my freelance work and attract new customers by showcasing my portfolio. I've been working consistently, so I'd say that it got the jib done.

"Easy & Beautiful Designing"

What do you like best?

i love how the interface on Webflow has a similar layout to Adobe. For graphic designers looking to expand into web services, this is really useful. I also love the customization options Webflow supports in addition the the templates and suggestions it provides

What do you dislike?

it may be confusing at first if you are used to other programs, such as wordpress. However, all web programs like these have learning curves and once you’re fluent with Webflow it comes naturally and your work is more efficient

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try it! Especially if you’re looking to add web design services but you aren’t super code savvy OR if you are avoiding wordpress- this is a great alternative

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Webflow makes designing, building and launching websites for myself and for clients a breeze. Unlike Squarspace and similar programs, Webflow supports a completely custom look and elevated design features

"Made for designers needing custom portfolio sites with limited coding experience"

What do you like best?

It has a lot of cool built in functions and animations that takes some tinkering to get used to, especially for those with limited front end coding experience. If the page you want to make doesn't fit neatly in a template, is fairly straightforward gallery-esque, and does not require data from users, it is a great tool.

What do you dislike?

When you pay to send a project live, it only sends the specified project live. It is not a license that says "you can have 1 page live." So, if you have multiple projects to explore different ideas and want to switch which one is live, you have to contact customer service and explain your situation.

Recommendations to others considering the product

As someone that doesn't code, I mostly found it useful to make gallery-esque sites with minimal interactions.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I made my own design portfolio site and it helped me get hired at my current position.

"Visual Designer"

What do you like best?

I like how I can design in Webflow and easily export the code to collaborate with a front-end developer. It's also very user-friendly.

What do you dislike?

I dislike how it's not easy to optimize your page speed. Compressing images can only do so much. I get leverage browser caching and render-blocking JavaScript issues. Hopefully the Webflow team will work on this since many are also having the same problem.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There's a bit of a learning curve, but once you get into the software it's pretty easy to learn. I've used other tools that are similar to this, but Webflow is by far the best. The Webflow team is constantly working on updates and there's even a community wishlist. So the tool is bound to keep improving. I'm just hoping that they work on page optimization soon.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This is a good solution for quick web development. It saves time and the websites look good.

"If you want to make striking websites in a short period of time, then Webflow is for you."

What do you like best?

The thing I like best is Webflow easiness of use, because in order to make a website and have it live, online, in short period of time, I just need to pick out one of the themes that Webflow uses, and then I only have to change a few things (such as text, images, logo, etc) so that the website really suits my style. After this, it's only a matter of saving it and then make it go live. With all of these features, I must say that Webflow makes any person a web design guru.

What do you dislike?

One thing that turns me off is the limited number of themes., and what I mean with this is that Webflow doesn't offer a big arsenal of templates ready to be used, and I think that most of the templates that Webflow offers are more for very serious (and a bit dull) firms rather than fresh and original enterprises. If Webflow added a little bit more variety, then it would absolutely earn 10+ stars from me (I hope they take my suggestion into account).

Recommendations to others considering the product

This software is for people who wish to have a professional and serious look. Webflow offers templates son that you can have your website ready quickly. But you won't find any fresh or very creative sites.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The greatest benefit I've realized thanks to Weblow is let my customers have a professional and unique presence on the internet. I achieve this by making beautiful and professional websites for them, in a short period of time, so that they can start promoting their services and products online.

"Better than WordPress"

What do you like best?

This is the perfect tool for front end developers or full stacks that want to save time.

What do you dislike?

Could use a delete image asset function that allows users to delete more than one image at a time.

I wish they had a larger team to work on their wishlist faster. There are some features that the Webflow community wants but its only a matter of time before they launch everything. Big things in 2019.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try it out. If you can use Adobe you can use Webflow.

This isn't Wordpress, Wix or Squarespace; it's better depending on who you are. This is developer friendly

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm helping small business owners launch their digital presence quickly. This helps them validate with their market and reach new audiences.

"Wonderful tool for web development"

What do you like best?

Excellent service, can’t believe I’ve beeen working without it.

What do you dislike?

I just wish there was a desktop app. I hate that I can’t work on my sites offline. Makes for remote working sometimes difficult.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Right now, the pricing model is a bit weird. You can’t use the service unless you pay a subscription fee, and you’re kinda stuck paying for the entire service (including hosting). If you don’t want to pay for that, you might want to pass. I have a app only version of the subscription plan that I had before the changes, so I was grandfathered in. That made it worth it to me.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I can offer one stop shop services for all web and UI designs. My front end work is looking very clean and smooth. My knowledge of CSS and HTML has grown simply from using the service as well.

"Webflow lets you focus on the design instead of code development"

What do you like best?

Webflow has an intuitive editing interface that comes with web components and widgets that are easy to use out of the box and/or can be customized to your liking. It's great that you can publish the site immediately after finishing designing.

What do you dislike?

I hit stumbling blocks with Webflow's functionality and limitations, sometimes while I'm working on it, the page gets a little bit laggy and slows up, usually, it resolves itself if I refresh the page or exit and go back into it. I do find that, at times, though with their frequent improvements I'm hopeful that many of these challenges will be resolved.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Webflow it's a platform that essentially allows designers to write code in a visual way. As a designer, my coding skills are limited, so it allows me to not depend on developers to continue with the process, which at the end lowers the cost for clients, as well as lowers my production cost.

"Webflow allowed me to drop out of college & make a living working for folks all over the world."

What do you like best?

You don't have to know how to write code to use Webflow. I left college knowing almost nothing about HTML, CSS, and javascript. 2 years later I've built dozens of sites for huge companies in the UK, Sweden, Finland, and parts of the US.

What do you dislike?

A few features aren't too user-friendly, but they are powerful. That said, the Webflow staff are super transparent, and it's clear they are making efforts to improve their product all the time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is the #1 solution for building static websites. If you need a super complex web app, you'll need developers or another product to manage the backend.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I own a web app called Formatically. Every user-facing screen is built in Webflow. No Webflow, no Formatically.

"Fun and modern"

What do you like best?

It really is a modern web designing program. It is efficient in customization of forms, with the use of drop downs, or bullets. Also this program is very straight forward and easy to use. They emphasize making sure that the website will be able to be viewed properly on mobiles, so I would say their mobile optimization is something I see they focus on more than their competitors. Another great thing is that they aren't inflexible with you using any font you want, I was able to download and input some of my favorite fonts.

What do you dislike?

That it is all code-free, I feel like that can be a disadvantage to those who want to customize their site a little bit more than what their templates offer. I was slightly disappointed about that because I love coding and with this it's almost like using other online sites that just have customizable templates.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Can get websites up faster than ever with this program as compared to coding programs. So there are pros and cons of their template only vs other programs.

"Endless possibilities in a complex but comprehensive interface"

What do you like best?

Webflow is a website building platform that gives you complete control of every aspect of your website without needing to understand any coding. Their basic templates are a great place to begin building your business or personal website, but the ability to look at other people's websites and the structure of it in the Webflow interface is a huge tool to making a website you can be proud of.

In a mobile age, perhaps the most powerful feature of Webflow is the ability to build a website not just for desktop, but also for tablet and mobile, giving you complete control again over how the website works on any screen. Easily change the dimensions of the window just by dragging the width and see how the website adapts. You can make changes to your site on desktop, tablet, mobile landscape and mobile portrait, so that you can be sure your online presence is professional from every angle.

Webflow has made tutorials of virtually everything you could do on the platform while also adding humor and entertainment, so learning how to use it can be done at home.

What do you dislike?

The interface, while giving you control over everything, is also very complex. Plan on spending some time learning how the properties interact with each other. There are great tutorials on YouTube to help you.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use website for a portfolio website. For my purposes, the CMS feature makes showcasing my work super easy. I can input information like a project's client, description, image, completion date, and other things once, and it will carry over to other pages on the site. So if I need to make a change, I can update it in one place and the platform changes it everywhere. Super rad.

"Easy Design with an outlook to Code"

What do you like best?

That you can see what the layout will look like in HTML & CSS when you are finished. The animation details you can apply to your website. You can also examine your finished product in different screen formats, such as mobile and tablet . There are plenty of tutorials to look at while you work.

What do you dislike?

It's not so easy to use as Wix.com. I wish you can use the website without having to result in enlarging the screen.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try it out and see if you like it. It gives the full view of what is to look like on your web page. The tutorials are good for beginners when using the website.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

When I need to give the developer my designs they can easily look at the code and rewrite it without the hassle of them wasting time trying to plug in everything.

"Fast, easy and of quality? Webflow is for you."

What do you like best?

I like the ease of use with Webflow, you can have it online quickly. You should only use one of the Webflow themes. You must make adjustments to the theme so that the website really suits my way.

After this, it's just a matter of saving and shooting the server. With the above described we could say that the web design was so simple with Webflow.

I love the Webflow design interface, totally intuitive and really amazing components. Easy to handle in every way. The immediate form of publication in the design is enabled. A marvel.

What do you dislike?

There are very few templates that Webflow makes available to the creative mind and small or rigid companies. Must include templates or themes for travel agencies, photographers, video gamers and more. I would give 10 stars to 100 if it includes the necessary narration templates.

Recommendations to others considering the product

To everything you want to be part of the web and quickly create your professional image at the company level and visually more rigid. Not recommended for video game designers and freelancers.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Users have had their presence on the web quickly and efficiently thanks to Webflow. Knowing that clients are not an easy task to use Webflow and do my job.

"Webflow for the Designer (and non-coder)"

What do you like best?

I love that Webflow allows the user to create clean, well-organized, interactive web pages even if the user's knowledge of coding and programming is limited. Webflow allows for layout-driven pages to be built without knowledge of the code, but also gives the abilityto edit the code itself for those with a stronger understanding. Also, Webflow has very good instructional videos to help users learn and understand the software.

What do you dislike?

Webflow and be difficult to learn and understand at first, and isn't always user friendly. Although they have instructional database videos, the software is difficult to learn without watching some of them. Also, there are very few things that can be done without a paid account.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Watch as many Webflow tutorials as you can when you first set up your account to ensure that you understand how the software works.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Integrating different programs such as Shopify, PayPal, etc, can be challenging. Although it is possible, it isn't clearly explained.

"The future of web design is already here"

What do you like best?

Webflow is the solution that was sorely missing from the web design panorama: a truly graphical way of designing responsive websites, solid and that just works. It has almost all the building blocks needed, together with the best practices already implemented such as reusable assets, animation helpers, etc. It also has an host of advanced functions that can help you build data-driven and e-commerce websites.

What do you dislike?

The only thing I would prefer over the current approach would be an offline, desktop application, that would save all the data on the computer and then sync with a cloud platform whenever possible. Working only in the browser still makes me a bit unsure at times, and I fear of losing my work every now and then.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If the browser only approach doesn't scare you, Webflow is a truly innovative, solid and useful alternative to the usual web design tools, one that could also revolutionise the way you work.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Before Webflow, we had to build Photoshop mockups, then write code and design CSS constantly checking the browser to see if the design was coming out as intended, not to speak about checking responsiveness on the various screen sizes. Webflow is WYSIWYG done right: we can skip the Photoshop part and see what is coming out of our design as we build it, for any screen We definitely plan on using it much more in the future!

"Great for Designers who aren't that great at code."

What do you like best?

The best thing about web flow is how easy it is to use. The interface is great for designers who aren't that knowledgable with code. It speeds up the process of designing a website site by negating the need to mockup in ps and then build it. You can go from wire framing to building it right away. If you need to make any easy edits, you can do so easily by being able to visually see it, rather than writing the code and then seeing how it looks.

What do you dislike?

So far I have not experienced anything I disliked. They did just launch web flow university with a lot of tutorials; I would like to watch one where the can explain more about the effects you can apply to a site. That would be helpful.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Utilize their video tutorials and learn how to use each tool.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I currently work for a company that owns several business that need branding for all of them. Since I am a one person department for marketing and creative and I need to develop websites for all of the businesses, using web flow has helped tremendously. I'm a designer first, and I am teaching myself code, and this is the best of both worlds. It expedites the process, makes it easy to to edit and create new content, as well stops the expense of having to outsource this work to someone else.

"Perfect for building responsive websites."

What do you like best?

It has many useful tools such as exporting code, sections, columns, texts, images and much more. The administration panel is very complete and you can also customize the CSS code.

What do you dislike?

It is not a flexible CMS, it is difficult to make a personalized code or make large visual changes that are outside the chosen theme.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend it especially for the creation of small informative websites. Webflow saves a lot of time and that allows anyone to make a web page without programming knowledge.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is ideal for any development team that is responsible for making simple web pages because it does not need the programming of large blocks of codes, everything is pre-established just to change the parameters to our liking, place the information and we will get a new web page in a matter of minutes.

"Top App for WebDesign"

What do you like best?

I like the willingness to reproduce styles and elements, it offers a good layout of the website. You just need a little perseverance to get your own website and start receiving leads to your business, I loved the simple way to connect it with other applications like Zapier, which helps me to have the first relationship with my leads automatically This is undoubtedly a great advantage for those of us who focus on offering a quick response to our leads. Also something incredible is the ease and professionalism with which the blog looks, collections are something that can make a difference because in other platforms with a much easier administration and simpler processes do not yet have these possibilities, in general I think a platform Enough robust and professional.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes, the software does not allow me to scroll while I am in the designer quality. I also think about certain elements that the layers seem to vanish. Often, you can create a backup by clicking on collapse everything. Together, if you use a wacom tablet as a mouse, sometimes the scrolling capabilities also disappear.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Ease of use and the best, completely visible websites for google. I recommend this product for those who are into web designing profession. It is extremely good for designing responsive websites.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use it to develop web designs and web hosting, and up to the present it was one of the best programs we use when we talk about how easy it is to use and how fast the work is done.

"Brilliant Product, But Could Be Improved"

What do you like best?

I love the flexibility of Webflow. With a lot of other site-builders, there are so many limitations with sizing, layout, color, imagery, etc. For designers, this is extremely exciting because you can change almost every visual detail and add effects as well. I also enjoy the ability to see other designers work because it gives me inspiration for my own.

What do you dislike?

There is a very steep learning curve. The icons can be a bit confusing, and control panel could be easier on the eyes. I think one would have to watch a number of tutorials before fully utilizing Webflow to its full potential.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Webflow allows for very unique UI design. The integration of design & coding is great because it gives the designer the freedom to add personalization. Plus, it's free to use.

"Beautiful web designs if you have the time"

What do you like best?

I like that you have full and total control of every element on the page, from the sizes of different boxes and icons to the links each will take you to. The colors, the organization and the ability to create something entirely yours from scratch to ensure your design stands out and is unique.

What do you dislike?

The software takes an incredibly long time to figure out and get the hang of. There are youtube tutorials which can be helpful but the look of the designer can be daunting at first.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am enjoying the endless possibilities of designs and the full control you have as a web designer without having to CODE!

"Webflow is Almost the Perfect Web Design Software"

What do you like best?

The great thing about Webflow is it is perhaps one of smartest layouts I have ever seen for web design software. It is easy to do just about anything from animations to simple div formatting. It also, in my opinion, has about the lowest learning curve out there (with an exception being Muse). But, what I really love about Webflow is how quickly we can get a website built, and how easy it is to go behind others and make changes.

I also love how powerful it is - without sacrificing its simplicity in use.

What do you dislike?

The problem with Webflow is their pricing model and their attempt to monopolize your business. In addition to this, they haven't always been very good with communicating changes to accounts and other features. For instance, we have a lot of clients that pay us for Online Advertising. Using Webflow for landing pages was great. But, then they made a decision that their forms weren't going to work if the code was exported and hosted elsewhere. This resulted in us missing out on hundreds and hundreds of leads for our clients because we weren't made aware the forms stopped working.

Now, that's not to say that they didn't own up to their mistake They did. And that is great and worth considering.

But, the other issue I have is that they want you to build and host on their website. And they do give you the ability to invoice your clients from their site (with white labeling), but this kind of makes everything we do dependent on their platform. I also take issue with this because all of our clients are on our own fast servers. Why pay Webflow to host when we have servers already? Furthermore, why limit the capabilities of websites that are hosted elsewhere? In this sense, I think they are targeting the "amateur" web designers and not the pros.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Webflow offers a free plan which would be great for anyone wanting to try it out. I'm pretty sure you'll fall in love with Webflow.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Webflow to quickly prototype a website. It makes for quick work and from a speed standpoint - prototyping a website on Webflow can be quicker than doing a traditional wireframe.

"MUST-HAVE web design service for Designers"

What do you like best?

I love being able to create websites that are fully customizable for designers and eliminate the need to learn to code. The UI is fairly easy to figure out without the need for tutorials, even though pretty great ones are provided via Webflow University. I am not sure why it took so long for a service like Webflow to appear, but I love it!

What do you dislike?

Trying to understand the CMS aspect of Webfow has been a bit of a challenge for me. I feel like it lacks features.

Recommendations to others considering the product

None, other than just give it a try. Especially if you are trying to work directly with clients and don't know how to code.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am able to work more efficiently on freelance projects, without needing a developer, which saves me money and increases profits.

"Low barrier of entry, high quality results "

What do you like best?

If you're familiar with writing custom html and css, Webflow will come very quickly to you. Responsive design is made simple and easy and the training and resources made available are extensive and excellent.

What do you dislike?

Repeating multiple tasks is made tiresome by settings hidden under several layers of clicks.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try using the free version of Webflow to recreate your existing portfolio or company site. That way, you have a design already created and you can concentrate on learning the software and at the end, you have something you can actually use!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I don't have to write the majority of the code myself, letting me spend my time on design and interaction. If I want to export the code and tweak it after, I can.

"Meh...s'okay"

What do you like best?

Good WYWOSIG system. The drag and drop wireframe is appropriately used for on the go business as usual types that have little time for editing and scaling. The ability to enter text as it would appear on the page on the webpage is a great little tool. Video Tutorials help icons are always available as well, which makes for a nice touch.

What do you dislike?

Text can be relatively small, and you have to be careful with the drag and drop function sometimes. I find it tricky to get to the heart of the SEO and back end meta tags that are so essential for search engine optimisation editing and upkeep - it sometimes seems as if you have to be especially keen to dig into the section where you enter an "alt tag", for instance.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give it a try, most definitely. The tutorials are there to help, so the support is fairly strong. If you're more of a do it yourselfer, it's worth swallowing the pride and doing.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We've been using it in conjunction with a new website project we're looking to kick off. As we're not full-time web editors and digital marketers right now, it saves time and money.

" A great way to get a website live fast and easy!"

What do you like best?

I have tried a few modern web design software and Webflow is absolutely the best. It follows the latest HTML5 and CSS3 guideline so the code is clean. It's so easy to set up Flexbox and it provides some basic common elements such as sliders, nav bars but still customizable. Web animation is also made so much easier. The best thing is the CMS. It's pretty much an alternative of Wordpress but so much more easier and flexible.

What do you dislike?

The learning curve for Webflow is much higher than a Wordpress or Wix alternative. I really wish I was able to move items within containers uses a "dragging" function instead of the Adobe Illustrator-esque UI.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Webflow helps me to create my customers websites very easy and quickly.

"Customizable websites for the non-coder"

What do you like best?

Not having a background in coding it was hard for me in the past to update our website. However, once we moved to Webflow it was so easy to have a customized website that I can update anytime I choose. It so simple to add new pages, re-arrange material or update images.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes when I go looking for help in the FAQ section they dont always present me with great options to fix my problem. However, their service team has always been super prompt and able to guide me to a video or overview that helps me figure out what Im trying to do.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My team needed a completely new website that was fresh, customizable and easily maintained. Webflow helped us achieve all three.

"Hit and Sometimes Miss"

What do you like best?

I have a bit of a love-hate relationship with Webflow. As a designer, I LOVE that the interface allows me to create websites without requiring me to write code (my coding skills are more basic).

That said, saying that Webflow requires no coding is a bit of a misnomer. True, you don't have to code or know code to use Webflow, but if you don't have a pretty solid understanding of HTML5/CSS/structure/lingo, you're going to be, frankly, screwed. Sure, you can go into the interface, and with only minimal review of their info materials (eg. tutorials), create a website from scratch. But, if you don't know what you're doing (eg. say, you typically do graphic design and work with Adobe photoshop or InDesign) - you'll be duped into thinking the beautiful site you made (that looks great on your screen) will look just like it looks on your screen everywhere else - and you'll be WRONG. I had to spend a lot of time really learning about how to use px vs. % vs. VH vs. em's and things like that to really be able to make my websites responsive. Now, that said, they really do have a TON of tutorials and videos and webinars out there to help you, so if you are willing to put in the time, you can learn what you need to know. One of my favourite features is that you can go into the editor of other sites and see how they are built. It's a really cool way to learn more (in a reverse engineering kind of way). I really, really love this feature and appreciate that they decided to make this available.

The bit of "hate" part of my relationship with Webflow stems from 2 things: the time required to really learn the system (to find some of the subtle design techniques that are really critical to responsiveness, you have to hunt and peck - there's no one tool I found that really goes into this in detail from A to Z), as well as some issues I've had with their support. But I've updated that part of my review (see below). All in all, I don't see myself not using Webflow anytime soon. It's one of those situations where you have to take a bit of bad with the good, because it's worth it.

What do you dislike?

This is an update... I'd had an experience with support where I hadn't gotten a response to an issue for some time (and if you read on the forums, you'll see I'm not alone in that experience). However, I was able to get through to them via an alternate route, and from that point on, it was like I was a VIP. They were really timely with their responses, and I had a fantastic phone conversation with support - which was uber helpful (and uncovered a bug on their end which may have been impacting other users). So, I'm going to recommend them more strongly, but with the caveat that customer service can be an issue (I was told they are hiring more people, so this may be alleviated soon), so you just have to be persistent and try reaching out by other means if at first you don't succeed with the support email.

One other important point: they have had a lot of changes in pricing structure in the past year which has upset the community (see many forum posts) and left designers hanging about future price changes/competitiveness of using the platform. I don't do web design full-time, but I understand why this is a significant issue. In fact, I just built a website for a company who is most likely not going to host with webflow because of the high price. It's still a great platform, and it's easy to export static sites, but if you're going with CMS, then just know your clients will be paying a more premium price.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Watch out for the pricing changes that are going on now. Webflow used to be $5 for hosting a static site, and $10 for CMS. They went through several changes last year - to both designer plans and hosting - and are set to increase hosting in April: static site for $12 and CMS for $20. That puts them above industry competition (eg. hosting a WP site on Blue Host or other hosting platform). While you can always export your code and host yourself, that obviously won't work with sites that are CMS. Just a heads up.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Great tool to make custom websites from scratch. It's not "idiot proof" like Wix or other web editors, but there's a lot you can do with Webflow that you can't do with those if you take the time to learn it.

"Amazing Experience"

What do you like best?

Ease of use, and the community is outstanding.

What do you dislike?

Not learning about it early on, and I wish there was a deal for hosting and account.

Recommendations to others considering the product

While knowing CSS and HTML is important, Webflow will allow you to grow as a designer, and really focus on design skills. It will allow you to work faster and more efficient. The community is amazing as well! We are all helping each other out the best we can.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Being able to design and develop without having to hire a developer. Benefits me as a designer so I can focus on the design and not have to waste my time figuring out how to code something dynamic. Thus, speeding up production and turnaround times.

"Webflow is a game changer for web design"

What do you like best?

The ease of use, assuming that one knows CSS, is without equal among website builders. It writes beautiful code, is extremely customizable, and is regularly being updated with valuable additions to the interface and functioning.

What do you dislike?

It doesn’t have enough breakpoints. Sometimes I am concerned about it being browser-based, because I can’t work when my wi-fi is down. I wish it were like Adobe CC where there is a downloadable program that checks in periodically to verify a subscription.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you’re a designer who understands CSS, get Webflow!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I can create mockups for clients so much faster, and the built-in responsiveness saves a lot of time on the mobile layouts. Their collections which allow for designing around content is amazing. My clients are very impressed with the ease of updating their own sites, as well as the page load times of the hosting services.

"Excelente opción para una página web dinámica y minimalista "

What do you like best?

Me gusta la facilidad de copiar estilos y elementos, ofrece una buena diagramación de la página web y es interesante saber que aquí en México somos pocos los que utilizamos esta aplicación. Necesitas solo un poco de dedicación para poder montar tu propia web y comenzar a recibir leads a tu negocio, me encantó la manera tan sencilla de conectarla con otras aplicaciones como Zapier, que me ayuda a que el primer contacto con mis leads sea de manera automática esto es sin lugar a dudas una gran ventaja para quienes nos enfocamos en ofrecer una respuesta rápida a nuestros leads. Además algo increíble es la facilidad y profesionalismo con que luce el blog, las colecciones son algo que puede hacer la diferencia pues en otras plataformas con un manejo mucho más fácil y procesos más sencillos no cuentan todavía con estas posibilidades, en general me parece una plataforma bastante robusta y profesional.

What do you dislike?

No me gusta que muchos efectos tienen que ser creados de manera manual, es muy fácil la interfaz una vez que sabes un poco más sobre la plataforma, pero de inicio si fue un poco duro aprender

Recommendations to others considering the product

Facilidad de uso y la mejor, sitios web completamente visibles para google.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

páginas web personalizadas y responsivas, buena estructura a nivel programación pues es muy amigable en cuestiones de posicionamiento orgánico, me encanta la manera de programar y alimentar el blog y las colecciones pre cargadas

"Webflow is very user friendly."

What do you like best?

It is easy to figure out what you want to do in webflow. It has a very familiar interface and has similarities to adobe products. It also works in a very designer friendly manor. Meaning it is easy to think of what you want to do and then figure out how to do it with the available presets.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the program does not let me scroll while I am in the designer mode. I also think on certain elements the layers seems to just disappear. You can usually get it to show back up by clicking collapse all. Also if you use a wacom tablet as a mouse sometimes the scroll capabilities also disappears.

Recommendations to others considering the product

How can you export a published site and not have it searchable by the public.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are using webflow for layout proposals. It is nice because it makes a live link that can be used to view how a layout will work responsively.

"Intuitive web designing interface!!"

What do you like best?

Webflow comes with easy to use web components and widgets that can be customized to our linking. I liked the feature of publishing the site immediately. Very quick neat-looking designs (and the code!)Very easy to get started with great templates, quite intuitive UI, you can produce professional websites in minutes, adapts itself very neatly to the user. I also appreciate that the Webflow team as they are committed in improving the platform, when they update the software. In addition, there's a fairly solid collection of video tutorials that are pretty useful. Overall I liked most of its features.

What do you dislike?

In my experience, I haven't found any problems in this software. Sometimes the program is laggy and slows down a bit. It usually resolves itself when I refresh the page. The design of the side bar is highly inconspicuous. Bigger buttons, less icons and more descriptions are needed for beginners.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend this product for those who are into web designing profession. It is extremely good for designing responsive websites.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use webflow for developing responsive websites needed for my research. The easy to publish feature in webflow is really good and has helped me extensively in my research projects.

"Beste Software für Webdesign"

What do you like best?

Mir gefällt, wie wir Webseiten in Echtzeit gestalten können. Mir gefällt, dass wir das Drag & Drop-Tool verwenden können, weil es die Arbeit erleichtert. Alles, was Sie tun müssen, ist anpassen.

What do you dislike?

Es ist ein bisschen teuer, aber ansonsten habe ich keine Beschwerden.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Ich würde es jedem empfehlen, der mit dem Webdesign beginnen möchte, egal ob Sie ein Experte auf diesem Gebiet sind oder nicht.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"super intelligent tool that takes what i don't like about coding out of the equation"

What do you like best?

I love that it's a visual representation of front end development. It takes the painful parts of web dev out - staring at lines of code, surfing between files, and trying to make sense of hundreds of stack overflow questions, to name a few. Specifying style no longer requires you to install yarn, or to refresh your local every time you want to see a change. The controls in Webflow let you play with style with just a few clicks, just as if you were designing in Photoshop or Sketch.

What do you dislike?

There are certain HTML attributes they don't support. While they've picked attributes that aren't 100% necessary and that can be achieved using other ones, it's still a little disconcerting. I've also exchanged wading through stack overflow for wading through webflow help forums, but it's still better.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You should at least know CSS and HTML before attempting to use the product. You don't need to be an expert, but understanding how to arrange things the way you want to with plain HTML and CSS beforehand will speed up the process significantly.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I can freelance more easily now with Webflow. I have all my work in one place, and I don't have to bother with setting up super custom and complex web dev environments. I'm not a hardcore engineer so I really don't need any of that; Webflow takes care of all of that for me.

"Powerful Tool!"

What do you like best?

Webflow is, by far, the best web design/development tool that I have used. It is incredibly easy to execute on a web project, and the team is continually pushing out new features to enhance the functionality. I find myself recommending it regularly.

What do you dislike?

At this moment, I wish there was a standard e-commerce offering, rather than having to integrate a third-party tool. However, I know the team is working hard to bring this feature to the community.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Sign up and give it a try. If you have questions, check out the community forum as many users are ready to help. Otherwise, you can simply contact Webflow, and their customer support team will assist with any issues that you may encounter.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Efficiency. Webflow allows designers to create websites at a tremendous rate of speed. Clients are continually amazed by how fast their sites are completed.
