Hey no-coders 👋
At the beginning of August, I was 2 years into building a product that was gaining little traction.
I decided to take a week off and experiment with another idea. I needed a new creative outlet.
I used no-code tools to build a simple ecommerce store.
I started selling minimalistic startup shirts for makers like myself.
I didn’t have any expectations for this to grow, but in just one month, I got more traction than my previous 2-year project.
As I started talking to customers, I noticed that a large portion of my audience were also no-code makers like me.
Most of them would often ask if I could design custom no-code tees that reflected their favorite tools.
I got to work, spending the last few weeks collaborating with the no-code community.
Today, I finally got to release this project - a collection of minimalistic tees for no-code makers.
I’d love to share the collection with the community, but also some lessons I’ve learnt along the way.
1. Don’t be afraid to find a niche
When I originally created my store, I was prepared to serve every maker in existence. I wanted to cover a range of tees for developers, designers, marketers, VC’s, and everything in between.
As I continue to grow the store, I’ve found that the bootstrapped and no-code community are where I’m starting to focus my time.
Fitting into both these categories myself, I can offer the most value and use my own experience as an advantage.
2. Talk to your customers
We hear this all the time, but it’s so important to actually put this into practice.
As an active Bubble user myself, the original range of no-code tees was heavily biased towards this product.
After speaking to potential customers, I found there were so many preferred tools to include.
If you’re a maker like myself who lives and breaths no-code, I’d genuinely love to see you grab one of my new tees.
With over 20 happy customers already, you’ll be sure to love the quality and designs of each thread.
