No Code for Marketers – Here’s How It Can Be Useful
No code tools for marketing + its benefits. Long-read 👇 I’ve been working in the marketing space since 2012, leading a design & development startup and then SDK marketing for $54M in funding US company. Since that time I have used various tools to speed up my work. Today, while leading all the marketing for WeLoveNoCode (https://welovenocode.com/), a marketplace to hire no-code developers, I became very familiar with the no-code space, using no-code tools almost daily. While I knew about no code and used it before, especially in product development (https://www.producthunt.com/stor...), I never thought it could be powerful for marketing. 🤔 So how can no-code tools boost our marketing performance? In marketing, we need to work fast and deliver results: users, traction, MoM growth, and constant testing of new marketing channels. Therefore, marketing functions should have cross-functional support from designers, front-end developers, back-end developers, and automation experts to move so fast. 😀 If that support is not there, marketing teams can use no-code tools (yes, marketing can learn those tools). With these tools, people with little or no programming skills can build products/apps/automation easily and quickly. The main benefits for the marketing team from using no-code are: 👌 Speed of releasing new marketing initiatives. At WeLoveNoCode, we have several Tilda temples for marketing pages, and the marketing team can easily edit, improve and launch them almost instantly. 👌 Ability to automate processes in marketing. Marketers can also take advantage of no-code by building integration between various systems, having robust reports and workflows. 👌 Ability to keep tracking of marketing activities and spending with no-code tools. We track all marketing OKRs, projects, initiatives, paid and content campaigns, all that in Airtable. Go-To-Market planning with having all activities in one Airtable/Coda makes everyone perfectly aligned. If you add integration to Slack with changes updates, you will have almost a smooth flow. 👌 Ability to organize marketing researches and knowledge base simple and fast. Tools like Coda, Notion, or Airtable are perfect for competitive research, database projects, and keeping all internal knowledge synchronized and organized. 👌 Simplicity of user research. With no code tools running simple surveys and analyzing them becomes super simple. Furthermore, tools like Typeform can be integrated everywhere in several clicks. 👇 Let's talk about several no-code tools for marketing, which marketing teams can start using right now: 🚀 Tilda, Carrd, and Webflow — can be used for creating high-converting landing pages to inform and guide customers. All of the tools have simple interfaces and a rich built-in UX. You can also create pages fast to test hypotheses from available templates done by your team or bought from the templates marketplaces. 🚀 Typeform and Google Form — can be used in creating questionnaires, UX research, feedback gathering systems, and all ways of getting customer data for further marketing segmentation. 🚀 Zapier — can be used to integrate two or more apps and automate workflows. For example, when you collect a new lead, it can be automatically synced to a CRM and sent a personalized message. 🚀 Airtable — can be used for campaign management, content, social media planner, product launches, lead management, and even hiring. 🚀 Coda — can be used for organizing information and learnings, which I can share with the community. 🚀 Notion — can be used as a knowledge database, kanban board, project briefs. 🚀 Miro and Mural — can be used to design user journeys, empathy maps, personas.
