The Webflow Editor stands apart from most content management systems (CMSs) for its ease of use. But that doesn’t mean an introductory guide won’t help your clients.
So I built a guide to using the Webflow Editor, with content crafted for clients, right inside Webflow.
The website walks clients through the process of creating an account, then covers the UI in detail, and finally dives into creating and editing content with the Editor. And getting it ready for your clients is as easy as 1, 2, 3:
If you’re sold, go clone the site, and let us know what you think!
If you want to know a little more about the hows and whys, keep reading.
We’re in an interesting position when it comes to those who use Webflow. The types of folks who use Webflow range widely. But two of the largest groups are:
And while we’re constantly communicating with and building tools for you freelancers, your clients are another story! Because we’ve built our tools for you, we don’t have many opportunities to hear about your clients’ experience of Webflow CMS and the Editor.
Still, we want you to succeed with your clients. Hence, the client’s guide to the Webflow Editor.
Build completely custom, production-ready websites — or ultra-high-fidelity prototypes — without writing a line of code. Only with Webflow.
Once you’ve cloned the site, the next step is to make sure it meets your client’s needs. I’ve done my best to provide comprehensive guidance, but the content is necessarily general — after all, I don’t know what elements your client’s site includes!
With that in mind, there are a few things to note about this site:
Obviously, sharing the guide is as easy as sending your client the link. But you do have options for what you’re sharing.
For simplicity’s sake, you may want to just clone and customize one version of the site to share with all your clients. But for larger clients, or those with unique Collections, you might want to fully customize the content to match their website. It’s up to you!
I’ve already given several members of the Webflow community a peek at this, and incorporated their feedback. But I want to be sure it’s a helpful, living guide for all of you, so please share your feedback in the comments!
