It’s all fun and games clicking around a new tool and working things out as you go… until you realise you perhaps haven’t been very efficient! Looking back at my first ever Webflow project and at others’ first Webflow builds I noticed a few common mistakes that I wanted to highlight and show you how to avoid! Your future self will thank you for changing these habits and building Webflow sites in a more efficient way.

Huge thanks to Webflow for sponsoring this video and continuing to support my channel!
