The Latest No-Code News

The No-Code Tool of the Week: Podia

We’ve focused a lot on website and app solutions in our last few newsletters, so this week, we’re expanding our no-code horizons with Podia, a code-free method for building and selling online courses, downloadables, and membership-exclusive content. It is a website builder, but it’s way more tailored to selling learning content.

The need: If you’ve dabbled in storefronts and community management in the past, you know what a headache it is to switch between different platforms for organizing products, content, customer data, email subscribers, and payments.

The solution: Enter Podia, a single platform for centralizing content components without worrying about the tech 🙏 Self-described as ‘no technical skills required,’ Podia makes it possible to generate revenue for a fraction of the administrative effort!

The impact: By speeding up the process of getting products into the hands of eager customers, you can focus on what matters most: growing your reach and scaling your catalog.

When it comes to the UX, according to Podia itself, you can have a free website up and running in just ten minutes

If you’ve always dreamed of selling courses of your own, you just overcome the technical hurdle. You’re welcome in advance!
