I have recently realised an issue with webflow and so I thought I’d post on here to see if I’m missing anything.
I recently realised I’m going to have to keep paying the lite membership indefinitely to allow my clients to keep editing their site on the site editor. The problem is I don’t often make websites, maybe 1 or 2 very small websites per year, some years I might not make any - so I’m paying the lite fee ($16 per month) just for my client’s benefit. I realised recently I can transfer the website to my client’s account however this can only be done before hosting has been setup. This is a bit of an issue because client’s aren’t going to be happy with having to setup a webflow account, then set up the hosting on their own and connect their domain and publish the site, it’s not the most straightforward process and they’ll want me to do it for them - at the same time they won’t want to give me their login details to their webflow account for me to do it.
So it’s a lose-lose situation, I either pay monthly indefinitely just so my clients can edit their sites (I will effectively lose money as I don’t charge much for my sites). Or I ask them to create a webflow account, set up the hosting on their own, connect their domain etc which they won’t be happy with. What happens in the future when they want the website modifying? They simply don’t want to share their login details with me and I completely understand that, most clients I have worked with wouldn’t feel comfortable sharing their details with me. I just don’t see how this works, or am I missing something? Is webflow simply not for someone who like me who dabbles in web design/development and creates the odd site here and there?
