Webflow is one of the most popular and versatile content management systems in terms of customizations, ease of use, and community support currently available. Not many people can argue with this, however, sometimes the basic CMS functionalities just aren’t enough. Each project has its nuances, and sometimes you’ll need to look for 3rd party Webflow integrations to achieve specific functionality.
At Slam Media Lab (Slam), we’re a team of problem solvers who constantly strive to find solutions to ensure we push the boundaries and deliver the functionality required for each project. This, in turn, has led to experiencing and utilizing most of these Webflow integrations firsthand.
In this article, we’ll take a look at the 10 most useful Webflow integrations, which can help you unlock more features for your sites. These include:
- Jet Boost
- Bonus: Shopyflow
Let’s dive into each integration and look at how it can help you improve the UX and design of your next website.
Memberstack allows you to implement user authentication directly into Webflow, enabling you to create gated content and utilize paid memberships for your visitors. The user authentication functionality unlocks the possibilities to create more complex websites and deliver user-specific content.
Memberstack is great for any website that’s looking to deliver user-specific experiences and tailored content. Among the many Memberstack affiliates, American Airlines, Slack, and Entrepreneur.com use Memberstack to serve millions of users.
Apart from the core functionality delivering user authentication, Memberstack has a few more great features, such as:
- Single Sign-on capability
- Stripe Checkout and billing
- Scale with React
At Slam, we had the chance to utilize Memberstack on quite a few projects, most recently with Quiet Films on their documentary, The Death of My Two Fathers. The project required a site-native payment solution, memberships, and community screening management. We found that Memberstack would allow us to achieve this functionality and seamlessly integrate with Webflow.
Jetboost is a no-code tool that brings real-time search and dynamic filtering to your CMS collections. It’s the perfect companion to your Webflow CMS if you need to bring additional functions to the users.
Site search and filtering can be especially beneficial for sites with large collection lists such as job boards or ecommerce sites. The added functionality of site search and filtering drastically improves the user experience of the site and your SEO in terms of keyword research and identifying gaps in your content.
In addition to the site search and filtering functions, Jet Boost also provides:
- CMS item favoriting
- Dynamic sorting
- Advanced pagination
- Auto-archive CMS items
Airtable is a low-code spreadsheet/database solution that enables users to collect, store and retrieve data and turn it into actual applications. The power of Airtable lies in its ability to incorporate logic and automation that allows users to create complex workflows.
Due to these key features, Airtable has become one of the staples in the no-code community when it comes to database solutions. For example, Airtable can be used to host form submissions and place leads in certain categories automatically based on the form submission data. Another use case is the possibility of using Airtable as the job board database. It can host all available job openings and automatically sort jobs based on type, availability, location, industry, etc. Or, you can craft a comprehensive editorial strategy by creating an Airtable content calendar.
The full capacity of Airtable is hard to define since the possibilities are almost endless. The power to automatically create unique IDs and calculations using formulas unlocks many other possibilities for data processing and organization.
At Slam, we use Airtable on a bunch of our Webflow development projects to help level up built-in capabilities. When hitting a wall with the native Webflow form file upload, Airtable provides a simple and easy solution, enabling us to collect all the needed data.
In addition, Airtable’s user permission levels, familiar spreadsheet-like interface, and ease of use make it great for team collaboration.
Speaking about Webflow and Airtable, we cannot go without mentioning Whalesync. Whalesync is a solution that allows you to two-way sync data between Webflow and Airtable.
Whalesync’s true two-way data sync allows you to make changes in one database and instantly see it sync with the other. For example, any new data entries and data updates made in Airtable will automatically get reflected in your Webflow site, and vice versa.
Top Whalesync use cases include:
- Programmatic SEO
- Content marketing
- Internal tools
- No-code apps
- Cross-team collaboration
Slam Media Lab is also a certified Whalesync partner. We’ve helped both clients take their vision to life with Whalesync, and internally used the tool to help launch SEO programmatic pages at scale. To do this, we created a unified page structure for our nonprofit services pages. From there, we mapped the text on the page to fields within an Airtable base. Once we finished the copy and connected Whalesync to the base, the pages went live in a matter of moments. And as we adjust the copy and add more overtime, we have a live two-way sync with our site.
If you’re interested in creating programmatic SEO pages at scale on Webflow using Whalesync, get in touch with our team! We’d be happy to help take your vision to life and get you on the road to ranking.
Zapier is a no-code task automation tool that allows you to execute tasks across solutions based on platform-relevant triggers. This might sound complicated, but I can assure you that the folks at Zapier have made it extremely user-friendly to automate tasks and link various solutions together.
One simple example of Zapier’s functionality is the possibility to automate the confirmation emails to your Webflow form submissions. If you’re compiling a waitlist prior to your product launch and would like to send a confirmation email to whoever signs up, you can use Zapier’s form submit trigger to automatically send the confirmation email. Being able to automate tasks like this enables you to save time and focus on other higher-priority activities.
It’s important to mention that Zapier is not just used for Webflow or your email provider. Zapier has more than 5,000 app integrations allowing you to create way more complex workflows and automation.
