Website Migration Strategy Session
The first thing we’ll do is have a strategy session with you to learn more about what you want from your migration to Webflow. Are you simply looking to take advantage of Webflow’s security benefits and design flexibility, or is there more to your decision to migrate your website? Regardless of your goals, aligning on strategy early in the process helps us to ensure a successful WordPress to Webflow website migration.
Once we understand your goals, we start the website migration. This could mean recreating your existing website or creating a full website redesign — that all depends on what you ask for. Regardless, we keep the lines of communication open every step of the way so you’re never in the dark.
You’ve worked hard to ensure your website ranks in search engines like Google and Bing. So, we work hard to ensure that you maintain your hard-earned rankings throughout the migration. This means we pay close attention to ensure that redirects are in place, and on-page SEO data is intact, so that the migration doesn’t lead to broken links and lost organic search traffic.
Design & Development Experience
With hundreds of Webflow website projects under our belt (pun intended), our experience is unmatched. When you work with Belt Creative, you can rest assured you’re working with a team that knows exactly what they’re doing.
Webflow SEO Specialists
When you work with web development experts, there’s often something missing — SEO. Simply put, web designers aren’t typically SEO specialists. However, your SEO is most at risk during a website migration. That’s why we have a team of SEO specialists that are involved at every step of the migration process. Now, you can rest assured that your search engine rankings are protected throughout your migration.
In most cases, when you have a website migrated, you’ll need to train your team on the new content management system based on what you learn from your migration team. That’s not the case here. We’re hands-on with the training process and proudly provide team training events once your migration is complete.
Ongoing Webflow Support
When your migration is over, we don’t just hand you the keys to the site and tell you to have a great day. We’re there with you every step of the way with ongoing Webflow support.
On average, it takes about four to six weeks to migrate a Shopify website to Webflow. However, the exact amount of time it takes to migrate your website will vary greatly depending on several factors. Some of the most important factors that play a role in migration times include:
- Design complexity
- The size of your website
- Whether or not you’d like a design change during the migration
Regardless, our team is transparent and honest about the migration process and timeline. When we give you a deadline, we meet it. Contact us today to find out how long your project might take.
While both Webflow and Shopify are user-friendly platforms, Webflow is typically considered easier to use than Shopify. Unlike Shopify, Webflow allows for more customization without the need for coding knowledge. Additionally, Webflow's content management system is intuitive and straightforward to navigate. While Shopify offers many powerful e-commerce features, its focus on online stores may make it less ideal for non-e-commerce sites. Overall, if you're looking for a website builder that is easy to use and customizable, Webflow may be a better fit for your needs.
When it comes to search engine optimization (SEO), Webflow and Shopify are both capable platforms. However, many users and experts in the field believe that Webflow provides better SEO capabilities than Shopify.
One of the main reasons for this is that Webflow offers more control over your website's SEO elements, such as custom meta tags, structured data, and page speed optimization. With Webflow, you have full access to your website's HTML and CSS, allowing you to fine-tune your website's SEO elements to meet your specific needs.
In contrast, Shopify's SEO capabilities are limited to what can be done through their built-in tools and plugins. While these tools can be effective, they may not offer the same level of control and customization as Webflow.
Ultimately, both platforms can provide solid SEO results, but Webflow may be a better choice if you're looking for greater control and flexibility in your SEO strategy.
