i would love to show my clients how easy the new cms is, especially the live editing feature. right now, a lot of them use wordpress with a template i created in webflow. i would like to offer them a switch to the native webflow cms. both them and me would benefit from the features.
currently there is no demo mode for the cms where people can get a feeling for how easy it is to edit content. but this is a must-have to convince someone in using it! so, a first step for me would be to add a demo mode to a demo site with a demo template for everyone to use in public.
but we have to think further. we have to think of our clients. they are not designers like we are. they can not imagine how their site with their content collections would look like in the cms editor. they don’t want to play with the content of a demo template. they want to play with their own content on their own website! the custom collections we create individually for our clients can be so powerful. a simple demo would not convey that. so a second step for me would be to add the option to enable a second content editor for testing purposes for free. i have two possible solutions in mind. 1) the first month for a second editor is free or 2) the second editor can not save or publish changes.
i think that would lead to much more potential clients wanting to have the new cms. so you guys from webflow would benefit, we as designers would benefit and of course our clients would benefit from that!
think about it!
