Hey from Australia👋June 3, 2020 at 12:22am
I am a current Webydo client with my freelance Web Design Service and am very interested in Vev as an alternative. Who would recommend the switch and why? And can I switch roughly 20 websites over easily?

Hey , I'm one of the [email protected], so my response will be quite biased. But I'll give it nonetheless, as it may be useful to you :)
I wouldn't recommend a hard switch with a 20-website-migration, at least not without trying Vev first. Vev does not have a native CMS option and relies on 3rd party services for stuff like signup forms - like mailchimp, formly or any other service that offers embedding.
But this isn't necessarily a limitation, as many people use these services anyway. The huge advantage then being that the output is static HTML which means it can be put anywhere on the web. You can embed it, host it yourself, send it to the customers for them to host it.
Personally, I don't see the need for any other tool to create content for the web, unless I want to custom code a platform.
For a designer, you'll probably really love the feel of being able to place things exactly where you want them. You can adjust how things look for various devices, and add your own view modes. As to switching 20 websites, if you know what you're doing, it can be done very quickly. But we do still have a learning curve. Maybe check out a stream from my good friend Parker re-creating (or at least showing how it can be recreated) a slightly complex website in Vev: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/614820977
Since it's free to give us a try, I truly hope you do :-)
Sincerely, Joakim @ Vev
