Setting Up Client Portals in Glide for Your Two-Sided Marketplace | Course Preview

Welcome to my brand new course on how to build customer portals for two-sided marketplaces in Glide! Glide is an incredible tool that can revolutionize your business, as I've experienced firsthand while working on the Unicorn Factory. Over the past seven months, I've delved deep into this tool, using it to create a functional and user-friendly portal for clients and freelancers.

In this course, I'll give you a detailed walkthrough of how you can create similar client portals for your own marketplace. We'll connect your Airtable base to Glide and transform it into an interactive interface that your clients can easily navigate and control.

Throughout the series, you'll learn how to allow your clients to update their profiles, manage their portfolio, and interact with your marketplace effortlessly. The changes made in Glide sync automatically with your Airtable database, simplifying data management and customer service.

In this course, I'll walk you through the process of building a marketplace to hire chess coaches, demonstrating the functionality needed in a two-sided marketplace. The first three parts of this series will cover the MVP for our coaching and student portals, including updating profiles and managing program applications.

However, this is just the beginning. The course will continuously evolve over the next few months, with new modules exploring more common use cases that you'll typically see in marketplaces. We'll cover Stripe Connect for payment processing, reporting and analytics, rating systems, and more.Whether you're new to Glide or you've already incorporated it into your No-code stack, this course is perfect for those looking to optimize their marketplace or directory. So, don't wait! Get started and enhance your Glide knowledge.
