Welcome to issue #2 of No-Code Startup Ideas. This week’s idea: Learning Marketplaces. Read on to find out why this is such a massive opportunity, how to build it with zero code, and how to get your first 10 customers.
I’ve been blown away by the response to this lil newsletter. This time last week there were maybe 2 subscribers, and now we’re up past 60. Thanks for making me a part of your startup journey! 🙏
After bootstrapping my first company (a software recruitment platform) to $20K+ per month using no-code tools, I started having way too many no-code startup ideas to ever pursue myself.
So each week, I send out a deeply researched business plan for a validated, profitable startup that you can start with no coding and very little money.
My goal: To help you start a bootstrapped business that pays $10K+ per month and lets you live the life you want. 🚀
You might think “online courses” has been done, and you’d be right. With Coursera, Udemy, and others, online courses are saturated. However, there are a few adjacent, niche markets that are significantly underserved:
Many schools are still closed. Extracurricular activities are canceled or severely limited, and kids have been stuck inside for months. That’s why one of the most promising niches right now is local in-person courses for kids.
Enterprising teachers are already hacking these together, recruiting through their networks and using spreadsheets or worse, physical paper. They’d gladly give someone a cut of their revenue to make it easier.
Plus, adults stuck at home are looking for stimulation too. Many will pay to learn new skills, whether it’s a dance class, chess tutor, or minimalist entrepreneurship course.
With lockdowns ending, now is an unprecedented opportunity to help people rediscover their communities while building hobbies and skills.
I think it’s very realistic to hit $100k/year in revenue in the first year. Once you have momentum teachers will likely refer each other, accelerating growth.
And that first $100K will likely be the hardest. Growth from there should come more quickly, and you could hit $1 million/year in revenue within year 2.
Plus... I've found your first customer for you! Read to the end to get the intro and @ me if you're gonna build this!
