My Webflow Development Process

Hey there! If you’re curious about how I handle Webflow development projects, you’re in the right place. Let’s dive into my step-by-step process that ensures every project runs smoothly and efficiently.

Step 1: Initial Project Setup

When I receive a development request, I meticulously review the design details, checking for any required functionalities, advanced animations, or integrations. The first task is duplicating the Finsweet Client-First style guide. I match the style guide with the Figma design, install fonts, upload the favicon, compress all images, upload them to the assets area, and create all necessary pages.

Step 2: Tackle the Hard Parts First

Before starting on any page, I handle all third-party integrations and custom code. This might include slider elements using libraries like SplideJS or SwiperJS or advanced animations with GSAP.

Step 3: Create Global Components

I design the navigation and footer elements, including repeatable CTA components, and make them global components. This saves time and ensures consistency throughout the site.

Step 4: Build Pages with BEM Methodology

I build each page using the BEM method to ensure the structure is clear and maintainable. For example, within a section_hero, I include elements like “global_padding,” “container_medium or large,” “section-padding-large,” and “section__wrapper,” using modifiers as needed to avoid touching the main section or container.

Step 5: Ensure Full Responsiveness

Using Finsweet’s fluid development custom code in the global CSS area, I make sure the site looks great on all devices and browsers.

Step 6: Optimize for SEO

SEO is crucial. I ensure all pages have optimized title tags, meta descriptions, Opengraph images, alt tags for all images, and aria-label attributes for links without clear names.

Step 7: Add Animations

I add animations to make the site pop, always mindful not to affect loading speeds negatively.

Step 8: Thorough Testing

I test each page on real devices, not just browsers. I check each section on phones and desktops, fixing any issues in the Webflow designer immediately.

Step 9: Project Transfer and Setup

After thorough testing, I transfer the project to the client, ensuring I keep a backup copy. Then, we connect the DNS, verify the sitemap with Google Search Console, add schema markup, and set up Google Analytics. I test everything again to ensure it’s perfect.

Step 10: Client Handover

Finally, I record a Loom video to provide clear instructions on how to use Webflow. Once the client is confident, we push the site live and celebrate the successful launch!

I hope this gives you a clear insight into my Webflow development process. If you have any questions or need help with your Webflow projects, feel free to reach out!

Happy building!
