Creating a revenue-generating no-code app with Glide

What is it:

ComeCDMX - an app for Mexico City's restaurants that are still open

What did I learn:

1. Glide app tool feature: Full Screen - this is a newer feature for Glide and great for viewing lots of information in a list in particular like a map.

When can this feature be best used for? If you have a lot of information that you'd like to display with a map, this feature mimics the same experience of Google maps. It flows into a nice full screen of the list of features on the left and the map on the right. Both working together to make the experience better for the user.

2. Product Strategy - Drive revenue. Sponsorship for a local app. When Jesus launched this app, because he was proficient in Glide he was able to quickly get this out to market. His aim was at helping local restaurants by providing a way for people to connect easily to them.

I think that what is most interesting about this strategy is that you may ask why should this be implemented when Google is just as good?

When things change fast, opportunity arises. If you are willing to roll up your sleeves, with a little bit of creativity and putting together an app with no-code you can take advantage of new opportunities that open up. For example, because so much was changing, with when the mandatory shut downs were happening, Google did not have the most up to date information about store hours, whether you can order online, how you can, rapid closings, does the restaurant now accept Uber eats, etc. Because of all these new data variables, Google is too slow to build these into their experience.

Here you can take advantage of this window and create something for your local town. Something like this could easily get promoted to local press, and then because you are getting traffic you could sell advertisements or special positioning for restaurant ordering within the list.

3. Product Strategy - Build for a cause. If you are anxious about making something for the first time and how it will be received because you do not have an experience as a Maker yet. The best way to start is by building for a good cause, doing free work, scratching your itch, experimenting or just sharing what you are learning. When you take those approaches, something interesting happens. People respond differently. This takes the pressure off because you aren't overtly trying to make a concept work.
