I've written before, that you can launch a business with a google sheet.

Now I'm going to talk about the Pre-MVP.

When you have an idea. Launch a google sheet.

Create a Marketplace

Don't got time to code? No time to source more than a few sellers and buyers? Launch a google sheet for them to find each other. If your business is a marketplace, You might think this cannibalizing your product. But if your marketplace is worth it's price, it'll be 10x better than a google sheet. And this google sheet will get your users started right now.

You can copy the one I made.

And, Here's how I made it.

        I checked the site, it isn't listed, search doesn't bring it up. Also I got an email today regarding it (coincidentally) from appsumo saying it's going away soon, but when I click on the link in the email it brings me to appsumo.com not the Better Sheets deal. Is it gone already?

        1. 1

          The deal is still here: https://appsumo.com/better-sheets/
          It's not on the browse feature since it's a community deal still.
