Wilian was working as a UX/UI designer at a startup in San Mateo, when he stumbled upon a Webflow advertisement on Youtube.
Wilian spent most of his free time learning Webflow, creating websites for customers, and making videos to share what he was learning.
Two of the startups that Wilian lead design for were acquired by Google. These two exits lead to many opportunities in the digital design space to make an impact.
Using his new skills in Webflow development, Wilian was finally able to build his portfolio exactly as he envisioned. After three months of researching, designing, and development. He launched his new portfolio website into the market and made a major splash.
His portfolio got the attention of the Webflow team and was featured on the Webflow showcase page. Google, Dropbox, Facebook, and many other companies reached out. This was a clear sign that Webflow is a major asset to designers, marketers, companies, and agencies that want full control of the ux/ui design of their websites.
After launching his new portfolio, Wilian landed his dream job at Google as a lead digital product designer. This was his first experience learning how digital products and website were built at scale and leading design at a major corporation. During this time, he learned how to design and build digital products/solutions that people love and trust.
During his time at Google, Wilian would spend his nights and weekends working on freelance projects building websites in Webflow. On July 19th, he ended his contract with Google and began working full time on Zabal Media, LLC.
Wilian was able to quickly grow the Zabal Media team to 4 team members at the beginning of the year and began working with some major brands around the world. At this time, Zabal Media was accepted to the Webflow Enterprise Agency Partners program. This meant that Webflow vetted Zabal Media as one of the top Webflow expert partners in the world. More specifically, Zabal Media was now part of the enterprise service providers, which would open up new opportunities with large companies and teams.
Zabal Media also became an Adalo expert partner for no-code mobile apps. Having both expert certificates made Zabal Media leaders in the low-code / no-code space.
One of the main things that makes Zabal Media special the fact that everyone on the team is extremely talented, and also great human beings. At the end of the year, the team grew from 4 full time members to 14 full time rockstars. They began working with brands like, Mural, Oyster, Microsoft MileIQ etc. They were growing fast!
In the beginning of 2021 they had established themselves as one of the top Webflow agencies in the world. The team grew to 19 full time members and grew 400% in revenue from the previous year.
As the company grew, they spent a tremendous amount of time with the leadership team to ensure that they had the proper systems in place to guarantee success for all of their lovely partners.
They became hyper focused on setting the proper systems in place, which lead to stronger results in project output. Projects were all running smoothly and partners came back to sign ongoing retainers due to the fact that Zabal Media brought so much value to their teams.
They spent several months rebranding the company and creating an entire new experience for their case studies. Their case studies are now an extension of the brands that they worked with. Their portfolio is not a simple template solution that shows final results of the websites they worked on, they are all an immersive experience from top to bottom that highlights every step of the process they went through with their partners.
The new website also has a new addition to it: Zabal Journal. This is where they share their knowledge about designing and building digital solutions in the hopes to educate both partners and others that are curious about this space. They are doing this for the community.
This is the year when they established themselves as an undisputed leader in the Webflow No-Code / Low-Code space. Their impressive portfolio includes collaborations with renowned global brands, and the testimonials from satisfied clients underline their trustworthiness, unwavering dedication, and exceptional talent.
The ultimate validation arrived in the form of Webflow's prestigious recognition as the #1 Webflow enterprise agency of the year in 2022, solidifying their credibility and bolstering confidence in every sales call. This esteemed endorsement from Webflow has proven to be a pivotal factor in the success of sales efforts. With an outstanding closing rate of 75% for all sales calls, the Zabal sales team stands as a testament to their effectiveness and expertise.
