Hey! My name is Diego.
I'm the founder of Ammo Studio, an Official Webflow Expert Partner. We build and grow Webflow sites for design-centric companies.
It all started back in February 2020. I was working as a security guard doing graveyard shifts and came across the world of design and Webflow. I was instantly blown away by the possibilities as I've tried teaching myself to code with no luck. I didn't do much the rest of the year besides continue to learn and practice and got myself a social media job at a small no-code startup.
A few months into it, we ended up parting ways and as I was searching for other social media roles I realized I like to design and build things more than doing social media. So I stopped searching and in February 2021, a year after discovering no-code and design, I created Ammo.
The first 5 months were extremely difficult. Barely any traction, leads, or revenue. The most I hit in those 5 months was 3k from one deal that was spread over a couple of months. I was so torn about the lack of success that I was 95% ready to quit and find design roles. Luckily I didn't as in August, 6 months into it things exploded and leads were coming faster than I can imagine and I landed to close a good amount which resulted in $35k of generated contract value. Here's a podcast episode I did talking about it.
Lessons I've learned are to be more patient, work hard but don't burn yourself out (take breaks and create boundaries) and believe in yourself.
