Do you want to build your startup, but have no coding skills?

WeAreNoCode is an ever-growing series of writing on non-technical startup topics. More and more people are becoming entrepreneurs and aspiring to build their startups. However, most of them lack the technical background to build & scale their business which stops them from getting started. As a result, they either give up or get so frustrated that they start a venture with a heavy tech component — which is not where the real gold is! To solve this problem without introducing technical knowledge, we have created a series of blog posts to let you know about amazing no-code tools you can use for your business. We just need you to take that first step.

What is no-code?

A no-code or no-code tool is a GUI-based method of programming that does not require writing code but instead relies on programs such as Microsoft Excel.

A no-code tool provides the person using the tool with all the necessary instructions needed to accomplish the desired task without needing to write code. This offers flexibility without the need to learn a difficult programming

Why is No-code Important for Businesses in 2022?

As per a Dotscience report, most enterprises take over six months to incorporate AI into their business models. This typically involves developing the technology, researching applications, and hiring employees with the right skills.

Companies can customize the intelligence of no-code AI with pre-set blocks of code for specific purposes and save money, time, and manpower.

No-code AI can be customized to fit the needs of businesses thanks to platforms and integrable modules. This makes the process faster — and more cost-effective — and boosts productivity. From Dotscience.

7 No-code tools that everyone should know about

There are many no-code solutions available today. Applications have limited no-code customization and automation capabilities built in and arrange specific resources that specialize in one thing. To keep things simple, we have identified seven comprehensive tools that can be helpful for your business

  1. webflow.com:Website and web app building:

If you don’t want a big bed-and-breakfast but still like Airbnb, Webflow is the site you need. With Webflow, you can create the website that you would normally ask an HTML developer to make for you, all the colors and the shapes and animations you want in your website, you got it!

With a more responsive website and an easier editor, Webflow is the product for those who don’t need more than a great website.

2. Monday.com: Project Management

monday.com is a low code and no code project management platform where organizations of any size can create the tools they need to manage their work. You can create a workflow entirely custom to your needs without having to touch a single piece of code. Want to use their coding framework to create and customize apps, allowing you to create the perfect workflow for you? You can do that, too.

3. Airtable: Database

Airtable is a powerful product, a crossover between a spreadsheet and a database that you can leverage to create an infinite number of projects, from schedules to CRMs, and even back-end structures for your website (using monday.com that we mentioned earlier for example).

If you haven’t tried it yet, it’s a must.

4. obviously.ai: Data science tool

Obviously.ai is a data science tool and will help you make very informed decisions for your SaaS business. Taking pride in working with Yahoo! and Forbes, Obviously.ai makes it easy to use data science and create the best possible experience for you. However, don’t be fooled; it does make a difference in what-if scenarios and integrations with the most necessary tools.

5. Email marketing: Mailchimp

Mailchimp allows you to create your newsletters, manage your audience, and even run ads. It’s fun, easy to use, and no-code. This is only a small sample. I love browsing no-code and low-code tools and am a fan of how much they’ve changed the tech landscape. In my opinion, this is what tech should strive for: More inclusive tools promoting access for everyone.

6. Notion: Knowledge management

The notions are hard to pindown into one category because you can do so much with them. From managing your internal resources to documenting roadmaps, archiving meetings notes, etc… This one is a life changer and just an amazing platform in general, I would recommend it enough.

7. Integromat (and Zapier): Automation

Tied for this category are Integromat and Zapier, two great tools that allow you to create automated workflows and connections between the software you use every day. Do you want to receive a Slack notification when there’s a change on your competitor’s website? Or does every subscriber get an email when they take a certain action?

These are the type of things you can implement, and so much more. I have a preference for Integromat for its great interface and advanced capabilities, but both are worth trying.


Whether it is website launching or payment services that you need help with, you are no longer at the mercy of developers (or rather, at the mercy of no-code tool developers).

No code surely changes businesses, understanding of work, technology, and lives. What you can do to benefit from these tools is to take a look at this list with various kinds of no-code and enhance the way you work.

No code, no panic!
