There are many different no code platforms out there that claim to be the best. Sure, platforms offer more or less the same features, but there’s one that stands out from the rest: Bubble.
If you’re thinking of making a web application for your business, you’re in luck. In this article we’ll tell you about Bubble and why you should build your app with it.
Okay, first things first: What is Bubble, exactly? Bubble is a no code programming tool and cloud that lets anyone build their own web application regardless of their coding knowledge.
Aside from function, what makes Bubble popular is how easy it is to use. It’s highly visual and extremely straightforward (more on this in a bit).
When an app is built on Bubble, it’s hosted on the Bubble platform and scales automatically. Marketplaces and social networks are most commonly built with Bubble.
Bubble is designed to replace traditional programming languages used for web development. It’s specifically for both technical and non-technical users to build web applications easily.
And one of the many great things about Bubble is that users get to keep full intellectual property of their application. Bubble on the other hand simply retains the IP of the non-app-specific engine.
Bubble uses a highly visual, straightforward drag-and-drop interface that gives you full control of the app building process. There are specific tabs you can go through to edit your design, workflow, settings, plugins, etc.
Users agree that Bubble is one of the most user friendly no code platforms on the market.
Since you have the power to build and modify your application as you please, there is no need to hire a full team of developers. This significantly reduces cost, so your capital can be spent elsewhere. This also significantly reduces the amount of time spent on building the app and making changes along the way. We call that a win-win.
When you make an app with Bubble, it’s hosted on Bubble’s main user base. However, when your app grows (as Bubble apps tend to do), you can migrate it to a dedicated cluster that separates it from the main user base. This means your app can handle more traffic. The busiest apps can get over 500k+ page views daily and over 30M monthly.
When people think of no code platforms they might think it’s only meant for simple apps. That’s not the case, especially with Bubble.
Bubble is a powerful tool capable of creating a range of applications from simple prototypes to complex marketplaces. But don’t take our word for it. The proof is in the numbers. Over 500,000 users have built and launched apps using Bubble.
Okay, so we’ve told you all the good stuff about Bubble. If you’re still not convinced, we’ll show you just how great it is. There are tons of successful apps built with Bubble. Here are just a few.
Dividend Finance is a national provider of renewable energy and energy-efficient financing solutions to property owners. Their financing platform and CRM was built with Bubble. They have raised $365M in venture funding and processed over $1B in loans on Bubble.
Comet is a marketplace for tech and data freelancers. Comet currently has over 1000 clients including L’Oréal and AXA, and over 9500 freelancers who’ve signed up. This marketplace made with Bubble has scaled to $800K ARR and raised $13M in venture funding.
Kollecto is a web app where artists and art connoisseurs can collect, curate, and purchase art. Founder Tara Reed initially hit a few speedbumps when Kollecto started growing. Luckily, she discovered the wonders of Bubble just in time. Here’s what she had to say:
“The crux of Kollecto’s functionality and ability to scale rested on the art-matching algorithm, something that, before Bubble, was impossible without code.”
“My advice to non-technical founders, or designers who are looking to quickly wireframe their ideas, or even coders who want to more quickly release an MVP before committing to a direction: try Bubble. The power you can harness and the flexibility that it offers is unmatched.”
