Wix is the website build I chose to go with since I could get the website up in just a few hours. I chose Wix because they offered ecommerce and membership features.” - Dianna
“My project is mainly based around a newsletter. Mailchimp takes care of that easily for me.” - Dianna
I spent 1,000+ hours talking with 150+ No-code Founders, who have generated millions of dollars with their businesses without actually writing code.
How are they doing it?
I spent years researching and building on what they do. I wrote The Lean Side Project so you can build and launch your product.
1. If you are looking to get going with an easy landing page go with what you are familiar with. Dianna was already proficient with Wix. There is no major reason not to use Wix if you are just using it as a landing page for a newsletter, or a simple pre-order page.
However that being said, it is my recommendation that you use Carrd or Dorik. Personally I have used Carrd extensively and it is so simple to use the learning curve is very low. Dorik is newer to the no-code scene but their roadmap is headed in a really positive direction that I think will be beneficial outside of just a single web page. Because of their integrations.
2. Further, Carrd has exceptionally good site speed. AJ the Maker of Carrd has built it in a way that allows for the webpage to have insanely fast site speed. This was verified by a 3rd party.
3. Mailchimp is a go to tool because of their freemium up to 2000 newsletter subscribers. I use this for Side Project Stack and have had no issues other than my frustrations with their dashboard, mobile app and general figuring out how to send campaigns. If it weren't for their freemium I would not use Mailchimp. Converkit recently started a freemium. Although I think their freemium is not 2000 subscribers.
In the beginning if you are not yet monetizing. Go free as much as possible. Because until you validate, paying for email client will just eat a hole in your pocket.
