FAQs

What is your experience with Webflow?

I have been working with Webflow since 2015 and am a Webflow-endorsed official professional partner. I've worked as a developer for different design agencies and have also worked with my own Webflow clients in many different industries. I have experience working with marketing leads and founders to grow and maintain Webflow sites over time and also have built Webflow websites from the ground up. Sometimes I work on projects alone and other times I will bring in some of my trusted partners.

How quick is your turnaround?

Work is done efficiently so you'll be able to expect a reasonable turnaround. The scope of the work required, what type of partnership we have, and how collaborative the work needs to be will affect how long it may take to complete.

Can you teach me how to use Webflow?

Many clients I work with receive recorded videos for how to use the more "tricky" parts of their Webflow site/CMS. If you and your team are not familiar, then I also recommend that we do a training session to go over the Webflow editor and best-practices when it comes to collaborating & publishing in Webflow. I do not give lectures or walkthroughs of how to use Webflow on a deep level. Webflow university has plenty of videos and documentation for how to use the platform if you are interested in learning how to become a Webflow developer.

Will you finish this website that I started building?

Oftentimes folks will see the ease of getting started with Webflow and then try to build their website on their own. Eventually, they hit a wall and realize it's not as easy as it looks. If you share what you've built with me so far, it's possible I may be able to help you clean things up and get your site over the finish line. In many cases, it would be appropriate for me to just start over though, since many beginner errors were likely made along the way that would be harder for me to untangle and fix rather than just doing it correctly from the beginning.

How do you like to communicate & manage projects?

For work that requires lots of back-and-forth, I prefer to connect with you or your team on Slack. Email is also acceptable if less communication is required. You may receive short Loom recordings from me to view at your convenience and we may also share some documentation and files via Google Drive. Meetings and calls are kept to a minimum, but sometimes they are required.

What do you charge?

I charge in three ways.

1. Per project: This is for a fixed and fully-defined scope of work. Full website designs and builds fall under this category. I cannot give a specific quote until we discuss the details of the project.

2. Per month: If you're interested in a monthly partnership (retainer) I would be happy to send you the details. This will give you access to me for quick lead times/turnarounds and you'll have a reliable partner for ongoing site work.

3. Per hour: I do have an hourly rate for ad-hoc work. Lead times can be longer depending on what is happening with my active projects and retainer requests. Reach out if you'd like to discuss further.


Do you also do design and copywriting?

For new  sites or site redesigns: If you're working with me on a new or redesigned website, I will sometimes bring my trusted partners to the project. I'll be your primary point of contact throughout the project, but you'll have a small team working to bring your site to life. If you have your own designers and copywriters, that is fine too!

For maintaining existing sites: I generally require that you have your own design and copywriting capabilities, whether those come from people on your full time team or additional freelancers. I can design website page layouts that align with the rest of your website/brand, but I do not create any graphics or other visual assets. I am also not a copywriter and likely not a subject-matter expert for your company, products, or industry so I am not able to write any text for your site. I do keep an eye out for any spelling or grammar errors and can advise on website best-practices, like if a heading is too long or too short.
