Below you’ll find a list of 10 successful no-code projects. Some are valued at millions of dollars, others are making 10K / month or more. 

In this video tutorial we’re going to look at some examples of successful no-code projects. Some of the projects on this list are raking in tens of thousands of dollars per month in revenue. Others, we don’t have financials for, but we believe they use no-code tools in unique ways, which allow them to serve as inspiration to other no-code markers who are reading this post.

So now, let’s jump in and explore our list of 10 successful no code projects.

10. Makerpad

Successful Nocode Example

The first project on our list is Makerpad. Makerpad is a platform designed to help makers build things without code. However, Makerpad itself is a no-code platform. Their financial details are no longer available after taking on an investment round, but previous to this, the site’s financials were verified through stripe and being made public on sites like Indie Hackers and Twitter. On this archived twitter post, you can see the site was making between 20K – 30K in recurring revenue late last year.

9. Rebel Book Club

This is a really interesting example of a no-code project. Rebel Book Club is a book club which organizes meetups in different locations around the world. It uses a monthly subscription model which brings in almost $19,000 in recurring revenue each month. The project was built using tools like Stikingly, Typeform and GoCardless.

8. Feature Monkey

Feature Monkey is another example of a no-code platform that I think makes really creative use of no-code technology to accomplish a very specific set of tasks. Feature Monkey was built in only 2 weeks and was built using coda.io, Zapier (for Facebook and Twitter integration), Google NLP Toolkit for the AI needs, and Slack for sending email notifications.

7. Lead Cookie

Lead Cookie is a LinkedIn prospecting no code productized service that scaled from zero to over 40K in recurring revenue in only 7 months! They use airtable as one of their no-code weapons of choice to keep their client’s leads organized.

6. WhalePages

no code agency success example

At WhalePages, we are a SaaS marketing agency that uses an assortment of no-code tools to help support many of the products and services we offer. No-code tools ensured we had a quick launch during our first month which allowed us to get up to $3833 / month in MRR within our first 30 days.

Our no-code tech stack is all over the place because we have many different products. For example, we have a SaaS acquisitions marketplace that was built using this free wordpress plugin. This plugin allows SaaS founders to post their projects for sale on our site and allows interested buyers to contact them directly. If sellers want additional exposure, they can simply pick one of our premium plans and the listing upgrade is handled automatically through the plugin’s integration with Stripe.

For our agency work, we use no-code tools such as Notion, Airtable and Google Data Studio to help keep our growth progress organized.

For our online courses, we use WordPress and various paid Learning Management System (LMS) plugins to handle our course delivery needs.

5. Humanic.Tech

Coming in at number 5, we have another site we launched called Humanic.Tech. This site is a simple personal performance tracking site we built in less than 48 hours that uses Google Data Studio and Google Sheets as the primary no-code tools that run our performance tracking dashboard.

Using this basic setup, users can subscribe to the service and then track progress in different parts of their life from fitness goals to spiritual goals and everything in between.

4. Broadcast Bird

nocode success

This is another no-code site we launched recently. It’s another productized service in the content distribution niche. The core of Broadcast Bird runs off of airtable. This allows our designers to upload their finished work for our clients to see and allows our clients to view their content distribution calendar in real time.

3. Mirror Mirror

No Code Success Story

Next, in the list we have Mirror Mirror. I think this is a really interesting project and it’s quite different from others in the list. I couldn’t find any financial information on the platform, but it’s a very creative use of no-code technology.

Essentially Mirror Mirror helps you make the right choice with simple A/B user testing tools. There are many different things you can A/B test from headers, to calls to actions, buttons and many other things.

2. Lambda School

No Code Education Success Example

Lambda School is a coding bootcamp with a unique take on monetization (courses are free, but they take a cut of your salary after you get hired). Last year it was valued at around $150 million dollars. Interestingly, it was built using no-code tools for admissions, teaching and career placement.

For example, previously they used Typeform for their application process because it allowed for conditional logic flow. Then, after an application came in, the applicant would be sent a Calendly link to schedule an interview. Next, Zapier was used to push the data into SalesForce and then various automations would happen which would result in emails being sent to inform applicants about the next steps with regards to their application.

For course work they were using the Learndash plugin for WordPress, which is a cheap $200 Learning management plugin.

As you can see in this example, it doesn’t take expensive code to run a $100 million dollar company.

1. Hey Marketers

no code job board success story

Hey Marketers is a no-code online job board for tech professionals which allows job posters to pay whatever they want for a job listing. Unfortunately, I was only able to find the financials from last year. But as of September of last year, Hey Marketers was doing about $1000 / month in sales.

As far as tech goes, webflow was used as the actual job board and then an embeddable typeform was used to capture job listings. The typeform would then send the data to a Google Sheet and then a Zap sends it from the Google Sheet into the Webflow CMS.

As you can see, Hey Marketers is a beautiful site, with a really easy no-code backend.

CONCLUSION

I hope you’ve found this roundup list helpful and you’ve been inspired by the wide range of projects you can build using no-code tools.

Thanks for stopping by today.
