The fact I can now develop websites without having to write a single line of code is amazing to me! I already doubled my hourly rate and I can see the difference in my clients’ reaction to my work and professionalism!
After working along with the modules in the Masterclass, I decided to recreate a recent website design I’d done for a client. This particular project had already been completed and I’d paid a developer $1200 to code for me. I set up a new Webflow project and I’d finished the build within 3 hours. 3 HOURS! It was at this point I realised I wasn’t going back.
I signed up for the Webflow Masterclass after committing to build a client project in Webflow and quickly realizing I was in over my head with a deadline looming, and thanks to Ran's course I hit my deadline – and I haven't stopped Webflowing since. I am a "real web developer" now — I've built over 15 websites, including a website for one of the largest companies in the world. Six months ago, there was no chance I could have done this work — thank you Ran!
With the skills I learned from The Six-figure Freelance Designer and the Webflow Masterclass courses, I was able to position myself as a specialist among educators. I’m now pitching for larger projects and do not need to get a developer involved. I increased my revenue, but what I really enjoy is that I feel that I can move at my speed as opposed to working among other people’s schedules.
The Webflow Masterclass was ideal for me because it allowed me to build our portrait52 website by myself. I didn’t have the budget for a developer and I didn’t want to depend on other people to make changes on the go. On top of this, I started offering web development services and so far I’ve built five sites for clients with Webflow, while doubling my website fees.
For many years I used a simple Squarespace website as the base for my portfolio, but I always felt like I was working with templates, or someone else’s design, and that I was simply tweaking rather than creating something more bespoke. The Webflow Masterclass allowed me to build a robust, and flexible design folio that can be easily updated and has the level of craft that I feel showcases my skills. And now I can add web development on Webflow to my services.
I come from a print background and I couldn't quite understand how Webflow worked. I was wasting a lot of time to understand the process of designing a website with Webflow, and nothing seemed to work. After completing the Webflow Masterclass, I was able to redesign my website. I'm now able to structure sites properly and build them quickly. I have more freedom and don't have to rely on developers to build the website or use limited platforms like Wix.
Until taking The Webflow Masterclass I was feeling like letting my clients down by using template-based website builders with that limited my creativity and were a hassle to maintain. I now have a refined process for new clients and a priceless tool to design websites without limitations.
