For non-technical folks, starting an online business used to mean finding (and hiring) a developer or chief technical officer. No more. Thanks to no-code development tools, anybody who can access a keyboard can build a business. Justin Welsh built a one-man online business that generated over $1M in revenue in 810 days without writing one line of code.[i] Hello Prenup, which helps couples write low-cost prenuptial agreements, was also built with no-code software.[ii] These successes aren’t accidents.
