Learn the mindset, process and tools to rapidly turn your idea into a first product you can test with real customers, all without knowing or learning how to code.
To get started I will share my personal story and journey, show the importance of the right mindset, introduce you to the Lean Startup Framework, teach you the value of using a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) and present you the MVP Experiment Canvas that will structure your path towards your own No-Code MVP.
The MVP Experiment Canvas is designed to break down your big business idea into an MVP that you can design, build (without code!) and launch within 2 weeks. But first, we're going to map out your big idea before we can narrow it down to an MVP.
After defining WHAT you're going to offer to WHO, we'll continue with setting up our experiment. How are we going to reach our target customer segment? How are we going to engage them? What are we going to test (which assumptions pose the biggest threat?) and how are we going to do that?
Before continuing with our experiment setup, you will get acquainted with a selection of tools you can use to build your own No-Code MVP. I will also give you tips on where to find design assets you can use and share some other tools that are also very good, but not covered in this course.
Now that you know the types of tools you can use and what type of experiment you want to run, it's time to sketch your MVP's scenario and workflow. We're also going to define what metrics your are going to measure and determine the criteria of a successful outcome.
To show what you can do without knowing how to code, I'm taking you through the setup, process and tools to build 6 real life, and working, "No-Code MVP's".
ℹ️ Please note: Each building guide shows a different type of MVP setup (tooling), put together for a different type of product and goal.
How the website was made exactly (design colors, heights, widths etc.) is not included. I generally take inspiration from websites like onepagelove.com and then try to rebuild a design I like. Check the Carrd tutorial again for an in-depth explanation of how to use it.
Also check the Zapier tutorial again to see the full explanation of how to connect Carrd's form element to a new workflow in Zapier.
