The creation of ‘drag and drop’ tools has seen huge changes in the web design industry. Building a website with a selection of blocks you just drag onto canvas has meant that almost anyone can build an impressive looking site.
But NoCode didn’t stop there. Building a website or e-commerce store is one thing, but making it a functional SaaS product without knowing any coding?
Integrations have allowed us to automate multiple functions across platforms since the likes of IFTTT, Zapier and Integromat let us set up a few ‘recipes’.
Now we have the opportunity to build this sort of integration into a web app with tools like Bubble and Adalo, or a spreadsheet into an app with Glide or Stacker, connect our data with Airtable, and roll them all up into an amazing webflow site.
Functioning SaaS apps can be launched in a matter of hours and provide product validation quickly. It’s also allowing non-coders to bring their business ideas to life, without the cost of hiring developers.
It’s also a great way to bring in new customers. Hubspot currently offers no less than 8 free tools on its website, all designed to solve a problem that its target audience might have. All you need to do is give them your email address and… wait, didn’t we just used to use ebooks as lead gen tools?
