What is Webflow?

Webflow is a web design and development tool, content management system (CMS), and hosting platform that empowers designers to build professional, custom websites in a completely visual canvas. The ability to build production-ready experiences without coding makes Webflow the modern way to create for the web.

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 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 and complex interactions and animations such as mouse microinteractions and scroll-based parallax animations which can also be combined with Lottie. More experienced website developers will also notice that Webflow has the upper hand when it comes to its code. Users get the option of either using Webflow provided code or adding custom code. The code layout in Webflow is clean and readable, whereas WordPress code is cluttered and visually busy due to the use of plugins. 

Webflow vs Wix

Being a popular choice for smaller-scale websites, fully template-based Wix doesn’t offer as much choice when it comes to design customisation as Webflow. Webflow’s HTML & CSS website editor visualises code, allowing designers to create web products and experience that most traditional web developers can only dream of. Webflow developers can use code snippets already provided in the Webflow library as well as inserting their own custom-built code. And even for website developing beginners, Webflow offers a great range of templates you can work with. If you feel intimidated by its operational structure, Webflow offers a great range of support through its Webflow University. There’s a course for every stage of the learning process, meaning anybody with a bit of time, even non-designers, can pick up Webflow relatively easily.

Webflow vs Squarespace

Squarespace is advertised as a platform that allows small businesses and non-designers to easily get up and running with a basic website within hours. Compared to Squarespace, Webflow is seen as a more complex and highly advanced site builder for web designers and developers to create with, and businesses to utilise as a easy to use marketing tool. With its wider range of available integrations, linking to other platforms such as Shopify and Google Analytics, Webflow beats Squarespace with its adaptability and resourcefulness. Webflow’s fast hosting service ensures transitions between integrations run smoothly, keeping your website high-quality. This also means any kind of updates you would like to make to your website will be applied in a matter of seconds, not hours.

Shopify’s focus on e-commerce makes it difficult for web designers to create a range of websites such as interactive sites, portfolio sites, hype building sites, and beautiful non-ecommerce business sites. With Webflow’s versatility, you can build any kind of website, whether it needs to have e-commerce capabilities for your business or a completely unique WebGL 3D interactive animation to blow the minds of customers, Webflow can do it all. Being a free website builder at the base level, Webflow also allows you to explore its features and actions which you can build into your website before publishing it. Once you have built your website, you can choose a site plan which best suits you, whether you’d like to launch a small portfolio website or a business website with CMS capabilities. Depending on what your business needs, pricing starts at $9 USD (roughly $12 NZD) per month, which is one of the cheapest deals out there for the features provided.

As you can see, each website builder has its own 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 designers at Psychoactive to maximise efficiency, while also giving developers the ability to develop complex development solutions. Webflow interactions allow for more enhanced motion graphics, transitions and custom designs, not to mention Webflow animations, combined with Lottie make for a superpower modern website. Webflow also offers premium support via its Webflow University, giving users unlimited access to resources. E-commerce is also not a problem for Webflow, as it allows you to integrate plugins which track your progress and help you reach the right audience.
