#160 – Validating and Building Your Ideas Without Code with Bram Kanstein of No-Code MVP

Read more

Bram Kanstein (@bramk) has more experience validating, building, and launching online products than almost anyone, and more success than most. One of his earlier creations, Startup Stash, still retains its title as the most-upvoted Product Hunt submission of all time. Today, Bram spends just as much time teaching others as he does making himself. In this episode, Bram and I talk about the importance of being an early adopter, the best strategies for finding new ideas, and why "mindset" is the first thing he teaches in his new course, No-Code MVP.

Get the step by step sequence Bram used to get 35k website visitors upon launch in just 48 hours! 

Overnight success takes ten years in the making, but it sure as hell peaks its head out a little early on some occasions.

Bram Kanstein is in the aftermath of one of the most successful Product Hunt launches of all time, and he's here to tell you exactly how he did it.

Bram is the founder of StartupStash.com, a website of goodies for startups and entrepreneurs that hit 290 up votes on ProductHunt.com and 2.6k unique visitors within the first four hours. At one point, Business Insider wrote a story about Startup Stash and it triggered over 300 views/minute.

All of this didn't just happen by chance. Bram used his mastermind to devise a plan for his launch with a relentless pursuit of any success. Hold onto your boxers and panties because he's dropping value bombs left and right in this episode. (free-ballers.. we've got love for you too :) )

Cheers, Bram.

To defeat Godzilla with his talents...

  • "Do something with his short hands. Take him down with his handicap."
  • Some people spend too much time looking for something when that something is right below their noses.
  • Anyone looking to build an app should really understand how to do it because it is simply expanding one’s own solution.
  • The best way to get feedback is by leveraging your own possibilities.
  • Don’t be afraid to ask; you never know what that person may know or who he knows
  • You don’t want to build an app that resembles a big app and you know you will never be bigger than that app.
  • Be involved so you know the people and you have a base.
  • Most ideas start when you are not behind your computer.
  • Bram’s personal favorite tools: MailChimp.com, Twitter.com, Slack.com, Trello.com and Marvelapp.com
