Webflow is the best website builder on the market right now for creating beautiful, interactive, user-friendly web products and experiences. Don’t just take our word for it, let’s take a closer look at the other most popular website builders on the web right now.
What is Webflow?
Webflow is a web design and development tool, content management system (CMS), and hosting platform that enables designers to build professional, custom websites on a completely visual canvas. The ability to build production-ready experiences without coding makes Webflow the modern solution for website creation.
What is a Webflow Partner?
A Webflow Partner is a freelancer, studio, or agency who has been certified and accredited by Webflow as a trusted, professional Webflow Expert. The Webflow Partnership Program is a directory of Webflow Experts serving clients small and large. There are two categories of Partners: Webflow Professional Partners and Webflow Enterprise Partners.
Why did Psychoactive become a Webflow Partner?
Webflow is the best website builder on the market right now for creating beautiful, interactive, user-friendly web products and experiences. Don’t just take our word for it, let’s take a closer look at some of the other most popular website builders on the web right now.
Webflow vs WordPress
While WordPress might be a great website building starter tool for beginners, Webflow offers a wider range of built-in features, giving the creator full design freedom. Webflow makes use of customized, complex interactions and animations such as interactive mouse effects, and scroll-based parallax animations which make websites come alive by creating the illusion of depth or 3D images.
When it comes to code, experienced web developers will also notice that Webflow offers a better solution - a choice between using custom code or Webflow provided code. Even better, the code layout in Webflow is clean and readable, whereas WordPress code is cluttered and visually busy due to the use of plugins.
Many of Psychoactive’s sites were built in WordPress in the early days. We sure are glad we made the move :)
Webflow vs Wix
Being a popular choice for smaller-scale websites, fully template-based Wix doesn’t offer nearly as much customization as Webflow does. Webflow’s HTML & CSS (page content & page design) editor visualises code, allowing designers to create web products that most traditional developers can only dream of. Webflow users can use code snippets provided by the Webflow library as well as insert their own custom-built code.
For less experienced developers, Webflow also provides a great range of templates that can get you started. If you’re not sure where to begin, Webflow University offers support and courses for every stage of the learning process. This means that anybody with a bit of time, even non-designers, can pick up Webflow easily.
Webflow vs Squarespace
Squarespace is advertised as a platform that allows small businesses and non-designers to get a basic website up and running within hours. Comparatively, Webflow is seen as a more complex and highly advanced site builder. With a wider range of available integrations, linking to other platforms such as Shopify and Google Analytics, Webflow outperforms Squarespace in terms of adaptability and resourcefulness. Equally as important, Webflow’s fast hosting service ensures that transitions between integrations run smoothly, maintaining a high-quality site at all times. This also means that any updates made to a website will be applied in a matter of seconds, not hours.
Webflow vs Shopify
Shopify’s focus on e-commerce makes it difficult for web designers to create sites that have more to offer than just sales. Webflow’s versatility offers the best of both worlds: the possibility to integrate e-commerce capabilities without sacrificing eye-catching designs. Webflow can also utilize plugins to track sales statistics and help you reach your target market.
Being a free website builder at the base level, Webflow allows you to explore all its features before publishing anything. Once you have built your website, you can choose a site plan that best suits you - whether you’d like to launch a small portfolio website or a business website with CMS capabilities. Depending on the needs of your business, pricing starts at $12 USD (roughly $17 NZD) per month, which is one of the best value solutions in the industry.
As you can see, each website builder has its strengths and weaknesses. Overall, Webflow allows for the highest level of customisation, in the most systematic and time-saving manner. As a codeless website builder, Webflow allows our team at Psychoactive to maximise efficiency while developing complex and innovative website designs.
Webflow also excels in creating interactive motion graphics, transitions, animations and custom designs. When combined with Lottie (a software that makes animations play in real-time), cutting-edge technology captures audience attention and encourages user engagement.
What are the benefits of working with a Webflow Partner?
Each Webflow Partner is required to have at least one certified and accredited Webflow designer/developer on their team. In Psychoactive Studios’ case, as of June 2021, we have 8. This demonstrates our credibility and understanding of Webflow intricacies. To meet Webflow guidelines we have created comprehensive processes to ensure that everything is completed to the highest standard.
