Takeaways

  • Has product called Building with Bubble that helps people learn how to build with Bubble.
  • Wanted to create a product that would help digital marketers get new work. Failed, but the lesson that came out from building that product was discovering Bubble.
  • Posted a case study on his product that he built with Bubble which was when the CEO of Bubble reached out to him to be a contractor. Created the “How to Build” blog series unintentionally.
  • About $3.5K of monthly revenue.
  • Took an hour of each created course and put it on YouTube for free. 2.5k views in a month of posting the first video, completely organic.
  • Community manager for Bubble across their social platforms, started when 35k users and now at 850k users. No scarcity about building on the platform.
  • His main concern about building on top of Bubble is that as they update their platform, for example, the responsiveness engine, he’ll have to redo a lot of his videos, but this is a typical concern when you build on top of any platform.
  • Read on the market: there's a lot of room in the nocode space for new creators.
  • Lachlan focuses on building clone products on Bubble, designed for beginners, not for people who are advanced.
  • Max with 100 days of no code, build something in 100 days.
  • If you’re looking to get into the nocode teaching market, choose a very specific niche and double down on that.
  • In 5 years, Lachlan thinks no code will become more mainstream. No such thing as code or no code, it’ll be “how do you build something?” More citizen developers, new innovations with no code.
  • Already there are no code developers on tech company teams, already job postings looking for Bubble developers.
  • Lachlan believes within the next 5-10 years, software at any scale could be produced by no code builders. Only limitation is games at the moment.
  • Excited about:
  • Cyberleads by Alex West. Alex built over 20 products and failed, is doing really well with this now. Was a software engineer, now he now refuses to write code. Very inspiring story.
