There is life after WordPress with a Webflow site.

Russel Davis | Web and Brand Consultant

Running a WordPress website for your business? Then you have more then likely encountered the following:

  • The White Screen of Death
  • Internal Server Error
  • Error Establishing Database Connection
  • Incorrect wp-config.php Information
  • Problems with Your Web Host
  • Compromised Website
  • Failed Auto-Upgrade
  • Connection Timed Out
  • You Make Changes and Nothing Happens
  • Pretty Permalinks 404 and Images not Working
  • PHP Errors
  • Difficulty with editing and updating
  • And these are just the common ones

You have probably spent time and paid money for:

1) A developer to optimise your site because the site is running slowly

2) Spent money on a custom development because your theme is limited

3) Are spending money a monthly maintenance

You see the issue with Wordpress, although an excellent CMS, it is free. This makes it convenient and accessible. It also makes it vulnerable. You have 100's of different developers developing plugins that are not tested when running with each other. So the plugins conflict causing server errors. The conflicts are hard to determine and as it takes a developer hours to check each plugin against the others.

WordPress sites are also vulnerable to being hacked with malicious content and spam.

Webflow. The best web builder just keeps getting better!


IOS vs Android, PC vs Mac, McDonald’s vs Burger King, Coke vs Pepsi for enthusiasts of these respective brands the debate as to which brand is the better will always range on.  However, when it comes to website builders there are Webflow vs...Webflow.


In my mind, there is no other website builder to compare it to. What about WordPress with Divi or WPBakery you may want to argue. In my mind, the comparison does not start. WordPress may be a brilliant CMS system but when it comes to building websites it's a behemoth to work with.

No Code

Webflow is a no-code website builder similar to other successful platforms like MailChimp. This does not mean that there is no-code but rather that the coding is done by Webflow leaving you the designer to do what you do best - which is design.

Hello design goodbye templates

Webflow puts web design back in the hands of web designers. Unlike other platforms where one either has to ‘reskin’ an existing theme around your website, doing your best to make it look like your clients brand, Webflow gives you full reign on design. Think about that, you actually have to think like a designer again. The benefit of course is that your site won’t look like the other 80% of the sites out there using the most popular themes.


These incredible sites were built in Webflow.

Incredible Webflow Sites

We imagine web design going from 10% design and 90% coding to 95% design and 5% coding.

— Vlad Magdalin, Q&A with Webflow CEO, Vlad Magdalin

Hosting

Webflow hosting processes over 1.5 billion page views a month. That’s 2x more than CNN.com and BBC.com, combined.

Webflow sites are safe and secure which means no more malware or malicious content.

The Content Management System (CMS) is ‘front-facing’ which means that you or a client can make edits to content on your screen without having to log in to the cms and make the edits on the backend.

Webflow University

The Webflow University has 100’s of tutorials for beginners, intermediate and advanced designers to help you build and take your web design to the next level. There are also blogs like Ran Segal’s Flux Academy that have unbelievable content designed to help you navigate your way through how to design websites, run a web agency, and lots more.
