I've been not-so-quietly rebuilding makerpad doubling down on what I know best, building without code. EDIT: I wrote about why I shut down my previous company The concept here is to teach anyone and everyone how to build in minutes and validate with real paying customers via a custom, tailored plan. For FREE. As more people sign up, you'll be added to a queue and I'll get to you ASAP. People can upgrade to the PRO membership which gives you: - Lifetime access (b/c monthly payments are annoying) - Access to all my courses (incl un-released ones) - Access to all my templates (21 on Carrd and counting) - Priority support - Premium tutorials as and when they are published - Discounts on some tools (more coming) What's on offer: Tailored plan: I'll help you figure out how to build what you want, flexible around your schedule and skills. Maker sessions: 30-60 minute sessions where people just make and build. Jump into the Slack channel to discuss it or just use that time for private progress. Tutorials: a mix of video and screenshot/text. Examples include Newsletter generator chrome extension and User sign in with Zapier Reviews: short, concise reviews of some no-code tools I'm adding to this every week so expect some improvements and changes. Feel free to add suggestions for reviews/tutorials etc πŸ€— Inspiration for the site design is from glitch, maker sessions is from Hunter Walk's writing sessions
@bentossell This is a great product and post. I’m a non-tech founder too (as you know) and I’m ever on the lookout for things which can help fill that gap for me. I love something like this, especially when it’s conceived by someone else who recognizes the same challenges I have; that makes the understandingly the user deeper and more relatable. I’ll definitely be interested to take a more in-depth look at this and see how it might work for me. Great job dude! πŸ˜ƒπŸ‘
@adammarx13 Cheers Adam!
@bentossell has been an evangelist for the no-code movement for years now, and has helped countless founders bring their MVP to life. As @rrhoover and many others believe, time + cost to build digital products will drop by another 10x thanks to this new wave of no-code tools and services. Massive congrats on the launch, Ben! πŸ™Œ
@bentossell @rrhoover @anthilemoon This is a great move Ben. I believe helping people is in your nature and it is often easier to help others in something you are good at than to do it yourself. (Speaking mostly for myself here but maybe it resonates with you too).
This is awesome β€” Ben and makerpad is going to be are the forefront of the no-code revolution. Not only will startups transition to no-code, but marketing teams inside huge organizations, small businesses, agencies... just the beginning! And amazing @webflowapp website @bentossell!
@webflowapp @bryantchou Cheerst Bryant - Webflow is becoming a bigger part of my focus on these sites too.
Really liked this new focus. You've definitely made a huge impact helping makers create things. Thank you for helping us as well!
@kevinnatanzon I appreciate that Kevin. I mention in my post about newCo that I started with this focus, then got distracted a whole bunch and when I took time to reflect and design what Makerpad was to become, it wasn't far from the original focus!
This is awesome!!! Great work, Ben!
@ftxrc thanks dude
