Build your first No-Code MVP

Best platform to build your Minimum Viable Product without Coding it
MVP (minimum viable product) is the first, scrappy version of your product that actually works and solves the user’s problem.
Here is a list of ways to create an MVP with 0% of coding it, and launch in a week!

First MVP: Simple Landing Page + Embedded Form

Speed: ⚡⚡⚡

Design: 🖌️🖌️

Functionalities: ⚙️

  • Use the  learnings from your user interviews to create a scrappy MVP
  • Build your idea as fast as possible - with just a Landing page and a Waiting List/ fake Sign-Up form
  • This could be as simple as a form with some manual work on the other end - to test your product on real users' needs
  • We use Webflow, but umso, Dorik, or Typedream can build an awesome landing page in a day
  • For creating forms, we use Tally or Airtable forms
  • You can also embed widgets to add functionality, like Airtable gallery or list to project items like listings and Airtable submission form
  • For Logo and Graphics Design, use Canva and Logo Maker for simple designs and Figma for more advanced ones
  • The goal of the MVP is to advance your learnings, not to produce a perfect experience

Time to iterate. Once you understand your users problems, you can iterate your MVP to try to build something that will solve solve them. May be a no-code app, but optimized for speed + learning.

Second Iteration - Build customly:

Speed: ⚡

Design: 🖌️🖌️🖌️

Functionalities: ⚙️⚙️⚙️

  • Great for developing fast-enough ultra-custom web apps and testing them with users - can build from an Airbnb clone to a Web API service
  • Works with a front-end designer, visual logic, an integrated database, thousands of plugins and can be connected to APIs and custom code.
  • Takes time to master - thus, you should be sure that you spend time building something users want
