Questions & Answers
What tools do you teach?
In the first few modules, we are going to be focusing exclusively on Webflow and Airtable. Over time we will be adding more tools to the mix like Zapier, Integromat and Memberstack. As we head into more advanced workflows, you will also learn about Parabola and other very use-case-specific tools.
Do I need any experience with no-code or code?
No. This program is designed for anyone who is starting from scratch. If you do come from a Web Design or Webflow background, it will definitely help speed up the process of getting familiar with some of the tools. But it is absolutely not a requirement to get started. A lot of our students have started from scratch and have done well.
Do you offer a free trial?
Because we send you assets we don’t offer a free trial but if you want to get a feel of the types of tutorials and content that you can expect from the course, check out my YouTube channel where I create a whole bunch of free videos.
How do I know if my marketplace will work with your stack?
There are definitely limitations with some of the no-code tools that I use but the most important thing to understand is that regardless of the type of functionality you are looking for, this is going to be the fastest way to get a marketplace up and running and validated. And if you get your marketplace to the point where it’s generating enough transactions and enough new customers then you can always shift over to a spec that is more suitable to your needs.
Do you just sell the MVMP template?
At this stage, we are not selling only the MVMP template. We may reconsider this in the future and if we do we will get in touch with you through email.
How long does it take to complete the course?
Depending on how much time and effort you put into it, it will take anything between 1 and 2 months to complete the landing page section on the course. And building out the entire MVP can take anything between 2 to 3 months depending on how much time you invest in building your site. Overall, this course is designed to work at your pace and fit into your schedule so it’s really up to you.
Can I do the course part-time?
Yes! There are a lot of people who run their online marketplaces while also doing a full-time job so there is no pressure to give up anything. In fact, I highly recommend considering starting off with this on the side and then building it up to a full-time thing. But that is absolutely up to you.
