Developing a new product is an exciting process, but it can also be a daunting one. You have a great idea for a new app or website, but you don't know how to code. Fortunately, you don't need to be a coding expert to develop a Minimum Viable Product (MVP).
An MVP is a version of your product with just enough features to let you test it out with real users. It's important to remember that your MVP doesn't have to be perfect. In fact, it's better if it's not. The goal is to get feedback from users and make improvements based on that feedback.
No matter which route you decide to take, remember that the most important thing is to get your MVP out there as quickly as possible. The sooner you start getting feedback from users, the better.

1. Define what your MVP is and what it is not
An MVP (Minimum Viable Product) is a product with just enough features to be usable by early adopters. The goal is to get feedback from these users as quickly as possible so that the product can be improved.
An MVP is not a fully-featured product. It is important to focus on the core functionality that is necessary for early adopters. Adding too many features will make the MVP more complicated and difficult to use.
2. Identify your key assumptions
There are a few key assumptions you'll need to make when building your MVP with no-code:
- You have a clear understanding of what your product is and what problem it aims to solve;
- You have a clear idea of your target market and buyer persona;
- You have a realistic understanding of what features you need to build to prove out your business
If you can confidently answer these questions, then you're well on your way to building a successful MVP with no-code.
3. Build your MVP
There are a few different ways that you can go about building your MVP without code. First, pick a no-code tool(s) to use. Do some research and find the one that you think is the best fit for your needs.
Our main no-code tool is Bubble. Bubble is a web-app no-code development tool, that allows users to build complex web-apps, with little to no-code. It’s becoming increasingly prominent in the space, after raising its launch funding round at a $1B valuation.
Secondly, figure out who’s going to build your MVP. If it’s a small easy build, it may be worth you learning the tools to build it yourself, or if you think it’s out of your know-how, hiring a developer or agency for that tool is an option as well.
4. Launch your MVP
Your MVP is only as good as your ability to get it in front of users and get feedback. Fortunately, there are a number of ways to launch your MVP without spending a lot of money or taking on too much risk.
A great way to launch your MVP is to use a platform like Kickstarter or Indiegogo. This allows you to raise funds to support your MVP while also getting feedback and validation from potential users.
You can also always launch your MVP on your own website or blog. This is a great way to get started without any upfront costs. You can also use this as an opportunity to build an audience and generate interest in your product.
No matter how you choose to launch your MVP, the important thing is to get it out there and start collecting feedback. By doing this, you can improve your product and increase your chances of success.
If you have a great idea for a startup but don't know how to code, don't worry! It is possible to create a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) without writing a single line of code. There are a number of ways to do this, all of which require some creativity and outside-the-box thinking. Whichever approach you choose, remember that the goal is to get your MVP in front of users as quickly and cheaply as possible so you can start gathering.
