7 Cracking No-Code Tools for Building Your MVP

No-code platforms are successfully keeping up with the overall no-code demand. We guarantee there is a tool for each step of your startup journey, from start to finish.

No-code is unmistakably on the rise. By providing a solution to entrepreneurs who don’t have the time to learn how to code or the financial flexibility to hire a professional coder, more and more startup founders are turning to no-code when building their MVP.
This increasing interest in no-code has resulted in a demand for no-code platforms. That demand has been greeted with open arms.
We’ve compiled 7 of the best no-code tools for you to use when building your MVP.

1. Bubble - Bubble will always be our number one choice. In fact, we’ve dedicated an entire blog to the platform. 
Among the many reasons we love Bubble is its simple user experience. The platform offers the everyday entrepreneur drag-and-drop functionalities, making building your mobile or desktop MVP app as easy as possible.
Bubble’s founders have even expressed that their main vision with Bubble is to separate programming from coding in order to level the playing field for non-coders, so we know their heart is in the right place. 

2. Buy Me a Coffee - If your startup is developing valuable content along the way, such as blogs or videos, it would be a shame if you missed out on Buy Me A Coffee.
Buy Me a Coffee provides a no-code platform for you to share this content with your audience for free. If audience members feel the urge to support you as a way to thank you for offering free and valuable content, they can “buy you a coffee,” or rather, make a small donation to your startup. 
These occasional donations can really add up, providing you with a bit of extra finances as you work on getting your MVP app to market.

3. Glide - Does your startup team already use Google Sheets for cataloguing information? Instead of spending tedious hours manually moving that data from your spreadsheet into your app, Glide can simply take your Google Sheet and create your app within just five minutes.
As with other no-code tools, this one saves you a lot of time and money and is incredibly simple to use. They even offer some visually appealing templates alongside a list of examples of apps that have been created with Glide for you to peruse. 

4. Voiceflow - Voiceflow is a brilliant tool if your startup idea requires a voice application. With accessible UX design gaining popularity, this is a truly revolutionary platform.
Voiceflow provides simple drag-and-drop functions that help you build your MVP and then launches your finished voice app on Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. What may seem like a complex and advanced process is now more accessible than ever.

5. Squarespace - Chances are you aren’t a stranger to Squarespace. Squarespace is one of the most popular website building platforms - did you realise it uses no-code?
Squarespace is perfect if your MVP is going to take shape on a website rather than mobile app. This tool provides a huge catalogue of gorgeous templates that are extremely easy to modify when it comes time to make them your own.

6. Carrd - Of course, not every startup is in need of a detailed website or multi-functional app. One of the best aspects of an MVP is that it doesn’t need to be a perfect, final product.
Carrd is a wonderful option for those of you who just need a one-page site to present your product or service. This is perhaps one of the fastest tools on our list, next to Glide. Sometimes the simpler the better - although Carrd does still offer multiple templates for you to choose from and customise.

7. Substack - In the event that you have already completed your MVP and established a loyal audience of early adopters, Substack might be the no-code tool for you.
Substack is a platform for you to easily create paid newsletters. As these early adopters become more invested in your Big Idea, your whitelist may begin to form by itself. Use Substack to give them what they want, and make some extra money while you’re at it.

We are confident that there is a no-code tool out there for every startup. From the early days of wanting a bit of extra income while forming your business idea, through actually building your MVP, to the steps you want to take once early adopters have grown loyal to your finalised MVP, this list will help you find the perfect tool for your needs.
