Who is your customer segment?
At this stage we mostly work with entrepreneurs who don't have technical skills and who want to build their product themselves, but we've also had small businesses using us. Designers are also something we have in mind, as the value for them would be to deliver the whole website instead of the design only.
We're still learning though:)
I think your marketing copy should be targeted at your Customer Segment and have more clarity.
"Programming Transformed" "General-purpose system"
Are terms that relate to programmer or technical savvy people.
Your headline: Create web and mobile apps without code
Statement: Our users are a mix of developers and complete programming beginners.
The best sentence is "Build anything from a wedding-website to a dating app to a rental marketplace".
Suggestion: Build your dream without code.
How about "Dead-simple programming"?
I like the "Build your dream without code". We'll AB test on that:)
What i'm worried about if we drop the "Programming" is that people put us in the WP/Squarespace/Wix category, where we don't want to be. Talking about programming is a way to have the visitors understand that their is still some work involved (but without code), but it does sound very technical.
PS: Thanks a lot, that's awesome!!
Yes I get it; it's like being an awesome programmer without the experience and skills.
We're launching this month our visual programming tool! We would love to hear what you think.
I'm a developer and looking at your feature list I can only imagine the work that went in ! good job !
Merci:) It's been two years
For $190 / mo I would expect to get millions of UUs per month, not 20k. I think your plans have way to little traffic capacity.
I'm sorry. It's uncontrolled.
What you build with Bubble is apps where users upload content (in most cases). An app like Instagram or Airbnb, with millions of UUs, pays way more than 190/mo, right? Our pricing is similar to that. Millions of UUs for 190 wouldn't be realistic.
I went through your tutorial and I was really disappointed that I was kicked out of the map project after clicking the last "Continue" button. I clicked it to close it so I could play around with the app I just built. I don't remember what the last message was. I never actually got to use the app I built, or got any time to modify and play around with the different options.
Personally, I don't learn by following orders - I learn by being given the tools and a goal. When presented with step-by-step tutorial, I just follow directions to quickly move onto the next step. I'm an interaction designer/front-end developer so I'm probably not your target audience. How well did the tutorial perform for entrepreneurs? After the tutorial was complete, were they able to understand the logic portion of app building and carry it over to their own app?
Yeah the last message was actually "You've just built a real app! Feel free to make changes and play around with it more. When you're done, click 'Continue' to leave the lesson and start building an app of your own!"... You're not the first person to give this feedback, I'll think about something there. The issue we had is that some people tended not to go to their home and didn't go further than the first lesson. Thanks for the feedback, it's very useful.
We've been targeting people with no technical training so it has been going quite well. The first tutorial is not enough, but once people do 3 of them they start getting into their own app and rely more on videos.
We hope to have front-end devs as well as users, bc Bubble makes that you don't have to worry about server side stuff, and is actually faster than code to get an app out there.
I've got to say, the demo video featured on the home page is pretty unhelpful—it's completely diagaramtic and doesn't tell me anything about what it's like to use the product.
In fact, the whole page doesn't show me anything about the app or what it's like to use it.
Is this page (http://bubble.is/learnmore) more helpful? We're still refining our homepage content, so that's quite helpful.
Yes! Smack those tabbed animations where that video is on the home page, or at least lower down on the home page.
Those 3 animations tell us exactly what we need know about the app in about 3 seconds.
This looks interesting! I just tried out the slideshow lesson. Love your guided tutorial! :D I remember seeing a library once for making such interactive tutorials but just can't remember which one it was. How did you do yours? Library or custom coded solution?
It's all custom-based, it would be hard to find something that would integrate with our editor
Well done on the website, I will give this a try when I get home :)
Thanks! Looking forward to hearing how it goes
