Hey @thesergie. Hard to give an average page count since every project is different. Glad that @DFink has a work-around, but the fact that a work-around exists is telling.
As a quick aside - I like the “10 page limit” banner you guys added today, though I would turn it on 100% of the time since only those who hit 10 pages will ever see it. It’s still “surprise, time to pay more!” Show it to the us on first login & maybe let us “x” out of it if we choose. Also, I really think the 10 page limit should be included on the pricing page. As time goes by, more and more people will be shocked by it’s existence.
So I’ve been thinking a lot about this today and I’ve decided to include my specific use-case here. I know you guys are busting your asses and sometimes get so deep in the code over such a long period of time that you may lose sight of who your users are and how a newbie user approaches your service. Hopefully this can help put things in perspective.
I’m a startup founder in NYC building my business. Our MVP backend is built on rails and since my background is in art & design, I’m hooking up the frontend myself. I used to just do the .psd’s and hand it off to a frontend dev, but I’ve wanted to learn HTML/CSS for a while, need to save some cash and help my small & bootstrapped team. And heck, my wife and I learned rails earlier this year via General Assembly - so screw it, let’s go full stack!
Now here’s the thing. I’ve got the main visitor “marketing” site to do, the login & onboarding process, the user pages & account pages, the admin…everything. I signed up for the $20 per month plan since I’m rational and want to test a new service before I dump cash for an entire year. I know going in that these designs will take me several months to complete. As a new user, if I like the service over the next few months it’ll begin to make more sense to convert up to the next stage - the $16 / $192 package.
If I run out of projects (ie. a project for the marketing site, the login user path, the admin etc), I’ll convert to the $35 per month plan and so on. Simple.
From my perspective, the current user experience is similar to if I signed up and paid the monthly subscription fee to Adobe for Photoshop CC only to find out that it limited me to 10 layers. That’s ridiculous and laughable to think about, yet it’s the experience you currently have. Also notice that I’m not complaining about the price, just the placement of it in my user lifecycle.
I can tell by using your product every day that you guys have put an incredible amount of thought and time into it. And you guys are doing a great job, it’s hard to complain about anything when you only launched multiple pages a few weeks ago. Most of the bugs I run into are small, but keeping projects limited to 10 pages makes Webflow a toy and does a HUGE disservice to the amazing high quality production tool that it really is.
