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


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


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