We’re thrilled to announce that Melia Marketing is now an official Professional Webflow Partner!
After thoroughly reviewing our website designs and functionality, Webflow has given us their tick of approval. We’re so stoked to finally join the 13 other Webflow Professional Partners in New Zealand.
Melia Marketing is always looking for ways to improve our systems and processes to stay ahead of the curve and provide our clients with beautiful, functional websites. So naturally, when we found Webflow, we just knew we had to jump on board!
What is Webflow?
Webflow Professional Partners are freelancers, agencies, and consultants who have been thoroughly reviewed by Webflow staff and certified as reliable and trusted Webflow Experts.
We love Webflow because it’s a blank canvas that allows us to create unique and modern websites with a design-first approach. Our clients love Webflow because it makes managing their websites and website content a breeze.
We believe that Webflow is the future of web design. Its interface is modern and unlike anything we’ve seen before. Webflow allows websites to be developed visually on the frontend then transformed into clean and semantic code ready for the web. This means that websites built using Webflow are generally more innovative, higher performing, and visually unique.
How is Webflow different from other website platforms?
Drag and drop builders, like Wix or Squarespace, are designed for your average Joe. These builders are great for business owners and individuals who want to build a quick and easy website themselves using simple drag and drop elements. However, they have very limited design and functionality controls. Their overall performance and SEO also pales in comparison to alternative tools.
WordPress powers 39.6% of the internet. Although they’ve been the top dog in web development for many years, WordPress was originally a blogging platform. Unless you’re coding fully from scratch, you’ll need to install additional themes and plugins to create a proper functioning WordPress site. However, the problem with these plugins is that they require regular updates and (unfortunately) don’t always get along. It’s not uncommon for plugins to clash with one another and break your website - just ask anybody who’s ever developed or maintained a WordPress website!
Webflow gives our web designers more creative control and freedom to bring your artistic vision to life and create websites that are a picture-perfect online extension of your brand.
What are the key benefits of Webflow?
🎨 Complete, total customization
There’s no limit to what you can create on Webflow! Every element is 100% customizable meaning that web designers have full flexibility and infinitely more creative freedom. And, with complex animations and interactions made easier, we can create a website that meets your specific needs and truly reflects the essence of your business.
💪 All the power, none of the plugins
Webflow is all-inclusive. You won’t have to worry about plugins slowing or breaking down your website. Everything on your website is 100% customisable without the need for plugins, and integrations with external applications are made easy. You’ll never need to install or update a plugin again.
⚡ Lightning fast and ultra-reliable hosting
Webflow websites use the fastest and most scalable hosting technology on the market by default. Your website is securely stored and automatically backed up with Amazon Web Servers (AWS), and delivered over the Fastly network. This is the same hosting used by big companies like Dropbox and Khan Academy.
🔎 Get seen on Google
Webflow websites are designed with SEO and marketing in mind. Webflow’s fast loading speeds, responsiveness, and clean code offers search engines like Google everything they love right out of the box, while further SEO elements are easy to implement on-site.
⚙️ Maintain and update content with ease
Webflow’s CMS is flexible and simple to use allowing you to confidently manage your website with ease. It’s also separate from the backend, making it easy for clients to add and update content without having to worry about messing up the structure of their website. You can easily edit content directly on-page, allowing you to see exactly how it’ll look once published while you’re still editing it.
The Bottom Line
Webflow is quickly becoming the modern standard for more efficient, innovative design and development - and easier maintenance and edits for clients.
Melia Marketing is stoked to be officially partnered with Webflow. We love the work and innovation they’re bringing to the web industry and are excited for how Webflow will continue to shape the future of Website Design and Development.
