How to Find the Right Webflow Expert
When you're looking to build on Webflow, finding the right partner should be the top priority. Here is how to find expert help, clarify your project goals, and manage your relationship.
1. Get Familiar with Webflow
First off, spend some time using Webflow to get familiar with its features. Think about your projects and how you think Webflow could help you. Getting comfortable with the platform means you'll have an easier time explaining that potential to potential partners, which brings us to point two.
2. Research Webflow Partners
As with any project, you'll have different needs and goals at different stages. Webflow has a directory of approved partners, but this doesn't mean you can't work with other Webflow users.
The directory is a great place to start your search. You can also search for Webflow users by country, keyword and interest.
3. Determine Your Goals, Search Parameters, and Budget
Next, list your goals, what you're looking for in a partner, and your budget. It's always a good idea to have a ballpark figure in mind as a target—but you also want to be flexible, lest you miss out on a great opportunity because of budgeting.
4. Decide Between Working with an Agency or a Freelancer
One of the best aspects of working with a Webflow partner is that you can work with an agency or a freelancer. Both options offer advantages, but each comes with its own challenges.
With a Webflow agency, you will benefit from the structure and systems of a larger team. If you're looking for more of a turnkey solution, a Webflow agency is your best bet.
If you want to build your project in a more collaborative environment, working with a Webflow freelancer can be a great way to do that.
5. Research Experts to Work With
Once you know the type of partner you want to work with, you can start researching. The best way to do this is to keep in constant conversation with people who can recommend experts they've worked with.
You should also research all partners, including freelancers. Look at their LinkedIn profiles, portfolios and recommendations here on Webflow. The reviews system on Webflow can also be a good resource.
5. Reach Out to Potential Partners
After you've narrowed down your search, it's time to reach out to potential partners. Use your list of goals to guide your conversations.
Some Webflow teams will be ready to start immediately. Others will want to kick the tires a bit before deciding what to do next. Be patient and work with them to develop a good fit.
6. Get the Conversation Going
If you're communicating with a Webflow partner, you can use the message feature in your profile. This is a great way to start a conversation about your project and get answers to your questions. Remember, you can message potential partners before asking them for a quote.
7. Start on the Right Foot
Once you've sent a message, you should check your notifications regularly. It's also a good idea to follow up with an email thanking the partner for their time and getting them the information.
Working with a Webflow partner can be a great way to simplify your project. An Expert can help you manage the project and ensure that you're developing in a way that makes sense from both a technical and a business perspective. Using Webflow helps you build quickly and easily. But, you can only build when you have all the pieces in the right place. If you need help, don't hesitate to contact us.
