Hey everyone 👋
My name is AJ Picard, I’m the founder of ZoZo App! I’m excited for this blog post because I get to share with you all in my opinion the Top 3 No Code Website Builders.
Why should you trust my opinion?
Over the past 5 years I’ve been teaching myself how to design, code & no code. I’ve been able to build 3 Apps & 15+ websites using No Code tools. What I’m trying to say is I have experience with this kind of stuff. Now before I jump in, if you have some free time I’d love for you to check out ZoZo. As a reminder, ZoZo allows you to create Keyboard Shortcuts for the photos, links & files you want to be able to share at any time.
Lets be honest, Webflow has everyones hearts… especially designers. Webflow was the first no code tool I started learning and I’ve been in love with it ever since. Fun fact, I actually built ZoZo’s website using Webflow. The biggest benefit that Webflow has over it’s competition is that its user friendly. From the jump its always had a one up on everyone else. Another benefit I think Webflow has is the ability to easily build your website & create custom animations.
Other no code website editors like Wix, Squarespace, Carrd all restrict you.
The last benefit is that Webflow makes it very easy to create a responsive website. I love how you can fully customize the view for each device (Phone, tablet, desktop). Other No Code Website builders either don’t give you the customization / freedom to to shape how you want your website to view on specific devices or they make it hard to create a responsive website.
Fun fact, I used to hate this No Code builder but once they launched their new responsive engine this year I fell in love. Before this responsive engine it was very difficult to create a responsive website which is crucial to your websites success. Now with Bubbles new responsive engine I believe they’re starting to take over more of the market.
Well, their team continues to make it easier to start designing in Bubble which has always been a huge pin point for their brand. The beauty of Bubble has always been having the freedom to create any thing. Bubble has an extensive backend & logic system that allows you to create complex features, integrate authentication, connect to API’s and more. These are all things Webflow can’t provide you.
With that being said if you’re looking to create your own SaaS, go with Bubble, but I’m warning you it has a huge learning curve. It’s going to take some time to get up to speed with how it works unless you’re already used to working with no code website builders.
I think Adalo is the sleeper pick out of the No Code Website builders out there.
Why am I saying this?
Well, Adalo can do everything Bubble can do. The only thing it struggles with is designing & creating a responsive website. I used to put Adalo’s design & responsive engine on the same level as Bubbles but with the improvement on Bubbles end this is no longer the case. Adalo also has a huge learning curve, just like Bubble but once you get the hang of it you can build anything you want.
Now, there’s two things Adalo offers that Bubble & Webflow don’t offer and it’s something you need to consider before you start building your Website.
If you’re looking to build a complex web app + mobile app I would go with Adalo.
Thank you so much for tuning into my Ted talk. I hope I didn’t bore you. If you’re someone that is interested in getting into the No Code space, I would start designing / building on Webflow. Once you get a hang of Webflow migrate over to Bubble, learn both of these platforms and you become a unicorn No Code Web Dev.
