What is Webflow CMS?

Webflow CMS is an incredibly powerful spreadsheet essentially. You fill in the data once, then place that data anywhere on your website and design it however you see fit. Think of it like dynamic content. Let's say you want to create a blog in Webflow. You design the page ONCE. Then, every time you write a blog, simply fill in the data, and Webflow automatically create a new page for that blog. This is super powerful and can be used for so much more!

Can Webflow integrate with Shopify?

Yes and no. The simplest solution is to use the Shopify Buy Button, but that isn't always a great solution. Another solution is to build a custom integration and pass data back and forth for every product. This again would be incredibly difficult to manage. For most businesses it wouldn't be worth the cost to setup. A simple solution would be to simply link to your Shopify product pages. This causes a poor UX and could have a severe impact on conversions. Another option is to just use Webflow e-commerce. This comes with it's own set of limitations. Need to come up with a solution for this? Ask us about how we can help!

Why is Webflow better than Wordpress?

Webflow allows you to build fully custom, scalable websites. Webflow is your builder and hosting in one. It also has many features that would require plugins when using Wordpress.

That means you get the cleanest semantic code we have ever seen. Pages load incredibly fast and your SEO will be far better than other platforms. Ask us about it.

Webflow components allow you to design a Nav bar/footer/etc once and place it anywhere else on your website. This means you can build pages incredibly fast.

Webflow CMS is also one of the most notable features of Webflow. You can whip up new landing pages incredibly fast.

A new blog? Simple and fast. Design the CMS template once and simply change the content.

Webflow handles the rest like the URL and dynamically fills in the Title tags and Meta Description when setup correctly.

What is a Webflow CMS collection?

A Webflow CMS collection holds all of your CMS items. Let's say you had a blog, this would be one CMS collection with a CMS item for each blog. Let's say you had an employee/team collection. Each team member would be a CMS item within the team collection. Let's go one step further. For each team member you have an image, job title, bio and fun fact. Each of these would be a field within each CMS item. They would of course be different for each team member. It may be helpful to think of it like a spreadsheet. To recap: A Webflow CMS collection holds CMS items with hold CMS fields.
