Hey! What are you working on and what led you to building with no code? Have you got any previous experience of building sites/apps?
The VillageOffice cooperative develops regional coworking in Switzerland. Our new application my.villageoffice.ch supports local communities to start new projects by providing a knowledge base and a tool to connect with like-minded people. In the future, it will be possible to be guided through the whole project, as part of our Social Franchise initiative.
What platforms and tools have you used to build VillageOffice Cooperative? How long did it take to build?
We built the app on Bubble, Integromat and Auth0.com. It took three weeks for the initial version.
How have you gone about growing your user base? What has been most effective?
We have leveraged our network of local partnerships, municipalities and media. Word of mouth has been the most effective strategy so far.
Have you monetised it yet and if so, what is your revenue model?
The current version is completely free. In the upcoming release, we plan to introduce a freemium version. Additionally, all of the knowledge base will be available to our future Social Franchise customers.
What has been the hardest part of building, growing or monetising VillageOffice Cooperative?
The hardest and most important part has been to find out the needs of our users.
Do you have any tips on building, growing or monetising a no code product/business?
Before you start building anything, put yourself in the shoes of your customers. Design personas and test them with real people. Repeat with each release of your app. The great thing about no-code is that it's relatively cheap to modify your app. But it's still cheaper to do your first tests on paper. :-)
