When we set out to start our business, we knew we wanted to do the best branding and web design possible for our clients in the Bozeman community. Through our experience talking to other entrepreneurs and small businesses in Montana, we learned that there was one major frustration with the website they were currently using. The primary frustration shared by these businesses was managing and making updates to their websites. Making the simplest change to hours or location on their websites would result in an unnecessary amount of time spent just trying to log in. We knew if we wanted to accomplish what we set out to do with Slanted Creative, we would need to not only find a way to build beautiful, fully custom websites but allow our clients in Bozeman to manage their own website content easily.
We both had experience creating websites, all the way from scratch in our college days, to using visual builders most are familiar with like Squarespace, WordPress, and Wix. The problem with many drag-and-drop builders is that regardless of how much easier a service like this makes designing a website in comparison to traditional coding for designers like ourselves, they are still too complicated for the average user to pick up and manage. As a business owner, you should be spending your valuable time serving clients, creating new product lines, or opening a new location. You should not be spending your time googling how to fix the catastrophic mess created on your website from just changing the Tuesday hours in the footer. We knew we would have to find something different, and our research led us to our favorite tool, Webflow.
Webflow is an incredible website design and hosting service that masterfully combines all the benefits of most development platforms while eliminating so many of the frustrating cons they possess. Webflow allows us as designers, to quickly develop beautiful and fully custom animated and responsive websites for our clients, without any of the restrictions that builders like Squarespace and Wix place on custom code, integration with third-party platforms, and rigid templates. While simultaneously allowing us to develop modern websites more efficiently, Webflow supplies an easy-to-use editor interface that we can give our clients access to. From this editor, a business owner can simply click on a piece of text or image, and replace it with whatever they’d like. The editor restricts what changes can be made to just the content, so you as the user never have to worry about breaking the visual design of your website. The editor also has a CMS or Content Management System that allows us to build powerful features. From blog posts to customer reviews, to menu items, to services offered, we work with you to divide what features and recurring content will need to be on your website, and you manage them by filling out a simple form.
The benefits of a Webflow website have brought our clients incredible results. The customization and ability to write coded solutions or integrate with third-party services means just about any feature is possible. The responsiveness across all screen sizes, robust SEO tools, and eCommerce features have allowed our web design clients in Bozeman, Montana to take their online platforms to new heights.
