I always hear people say that it’s impossible to succeed as a non-technical founder of an app. I think that's BS. Often times, non-technical founders actually make better entrepreneurs than coders. If you want to learn what it takes to succeed with a mobile app or any other kind of digital product, this free guide is your secret sauce.

@benleenr Looks great Ben! Looking forward to checking it out. In the meantime, I'm curious: What is the benefit of offering it through Facebook Messenger?

@imakestrides FB Messenger guarantees 100% deliverability versus risking it going into your spam box. I also love chatbots and wanted to challenge my team 🙂
@benleenr Ahh, got ya. Liking the ebook so far, thanks!
@benleenr @imakestrides assume building a nice ripe pool of people to target ads towards is a benefit of this, too.

@imakestrides Thanks Kyle! What should I add for version 2?
Sounds great. But the download link is dead. :/ Please fix.
@impsart @benleenr Same here. It times out.

@impsart @fearlex Very sorry about that! Our download link went down due an internal heroku error. 😬 https://status.heroku.com/ We've moved the guide to another server. Click the Send to Messenger link once more and you'll get an updated download link.
Ben! 🔥 Can't wait to dig in.

@juannikin Thanks! Let me know what you think!
I'm sorry but.. I can't see the button link
@cyril_nb even i cant find it anywhere!

I felt this ebook is a good intro but not the "ultimate guide". Enjoyed reading it but we're just scratching the surface. With a little more depth, it'll be way better.

+ improving the quality of pictures

Pros:

Great insights on the necessary steps before actually starting the app development.

Cons:

Almost no examples. The author mentioned he built so many apps, let's talk about it. It'll provide much more value.
