9 Reasons Why Webflow is The Future Of Web Design
As Webflow Enterprise partners, we’re biased on our view of Webflow.
However, we have a tonne of reasons as to why our Webflow agency is so bullish on the platform. In fact, we’ve never been as excited about the future of website design and development.
We’ve worked with every CMS possible over the space of 20 years, WordPress, Drupal, Craft, Joomla etc… Nothing we’ve worked with compares to Webflow.
Webflow enables teams to deliver a large portion of custom website projects, without manually typing lines of code. Using the Webflow editor is a much more efficient way to deliver projects.
With traditional development, there is a limitation to how much you can streamline the process. Eventually, it’s going to come down to how fast you can write code, and coding manually is a slow and time-consuming process, prone to errors.
Webflow removes this blocker, and allows us to build using a visual canvas, eliminating the need for manual coding.
With all that being said, let’s jump in!
#1: Collaborative Web Design & Code
The low-code nature of Webflow means that the visual aspects of the site can be handled without the need for our full-stack development team.
This frees up our time to invest in valuable enhancements to the user experience like the design, motion and functionality of the website.
#2: Easier Website Content Editing
A huge advantage of Webflow is that if you need to make changes to your site, you can edit content in real-time as you’re viewing it in your browser.
If you want to change a title, just click on it.
No more hitting ‘publish’ in an admin area and hoping for the best!
#3: Launch Sooner, Lower Cost
Without the need for long development cycles, Webflow ensures your website or feature is delivered faster, and as a result much more cost-effectively, than what is possible using traditional development processes.
#4: Easier Website Testing
Webflow allows Content Managers to view their newly built pages and content updates on different screen sizes like iPhone, iPad and desktop from directly within the platform’s interface, giving peace of mind that your new additions are going to look amazing across all devices.
#5: Enterprise Level Website Speed & Security
Webflow hosting utilises a Content Delivery Network (CDN) with over 50 Data Centres around the world ensuring average response times only 0.01s!
In short, your site will load super fast from anywhere, and Google loves that!
#6: Cleaner Code
Even though Webflow makes it possible to create a website without writing a single line of code, that doesn’t mean the code is not there.
Webflow creates beautiful semantic code that search engines love, as opposed to WordPress where code can become slow and bloated if you install low-quality plugins, or have too many plugins in general.
#7: Zero Limitations
‘Low-code’ doesn’t mean ‘no code’.
Webflow still loves code to extend it further!
Webflow allows you total freedom to realise any vision thanks to its completely unrestricted visual canvas, integrations with 3rd party tools, and freedom to be extended with custom scripting.
#8: Supercharged Marketing
SEO controls are in your hands with schema markup and the ability to automate meta titles and descriptions.
Digital Marketing campaigns can be scaled easily with templates available to build landing pages quickly and easily to tailor your site to suit any marketing campaign objective.
#9: OUR CLIENTS LOVE IT
They are finding it simple, flexible and intuitive to edit content, and make changes to their websites. Much easier than other platforms that have cumbersome backends with restricted features.
