💤 How an M&A adviser used no-code to launch a 'dream analysis' passion project

James Duffen was a part of our first No-Code Fundamentals course cohort.

This is the story of how he used his passion for psychoanalysis and knowledge of no-code to build a membership site from scratch that helps people analyze dreams and interpret their meaning cohesively.

"Hi! I’m James Duffen. I am a mergers and acquisitions adviser for tech start-ups.

Throughout the lockdowns I had recurring dreams about escaping from various scenarios, heists, rooftops, even evading vampires that were chasing me! This isn’t surprising given the amount of time I’d spent at home, but it did make me think.

Clearly my subconscious was trying to tell me something, so for the first time, I thought I’d listen.

I started researching dream interpretation and there is a lot of stuff out there that simply didn’t work for me (fortune telling etc.) and most people seem to search for a specific symbol (e.g. an animal) rather than the whole dream and the patterns of dreams over time."

The inception of DreamMe

"DreamMe is my passion project.

I studied psychology at university and was fascinated by psychoanalysis. Psychoanalysis is centered around the belief that everyone has unconscious thoughts, feelings, and desires. Freud, the originator of this theory, believed that dreams were a window into our unconscious.

DreamMe is an app for personalized dream interpretation and dream tracking. The idea for DreamMe is to achieve what Headspace did for meditation, but for dream interpretation.

My goal is to move it away from mysticism and New Age philosophy, and towards wellbeing and performance enhancement."

Bringing DreamMe to life using no-code tools

"I had this idea in early August and decided to validate it in stages.

Stage 1 was to see if anyone would be interested in finding out more about personalized dream interpretations via an app. I set up a basic landing page in Carrd and ConvertKit, and paid Google ads. In just over 2 weeks I had over 100 email sign ups!

I moved on to the next stage.

Stage 2 was to see whether people would join a members site and submit dreams for interpretation. I built a member site in Softr, Airtable, ConvertKit and Zapier, where users could login in, submit a dream and then read their interpretation.

This week, I moved onto the next stage!

Stage 3 is to see whether people will pay for personalized dream interpretations."

"My advice to makers that are currently building something, or thinking about it – just go ahead and start, don’t overthink it! The first landing page looked terrible and many of my friends hated it but it still worked!

I would however recommend that you map out a couple of steps in advance so you have an idea of where you want to go, but also be open to user feedback and course-correct if needed.

Finally, join Makerpad’s No-Code Fundamentals cohort! I was part of the very first cohort, and that community is still active and engaged now, even though it’s been months! Both Ben and Amie were super patient with me and I really appreciate that. If you want to build something but have no idea where to start then sign up."

I'm here to re-build our growing Shopify App with No-Code!, by Erman Küplü.

"We have created a Shopify app called Analyzify. We have already reached 400+ paying clients in only eight months. We are growing and adding new features! But it is so hard to make add-ons to software - or it was :) Now, we are re-building our app in No-Code and adding the features we wanted to add for a looooong time :) I can't wait to discover more and to improve our product day by day. I will also be joining "No Code Fundamentals" that'll start on the 2nd of November."

Partner Updates

Softr

We have rolled out a number of new updates this week we would love to share with you.

📏 Horizontal List Details Block
This new List Details block is centred around a horizontal layout. This new block is perfect for reducing the amount of scrolling and aligns your fields horizontally across a column of 3 instead of vertically.

🔎 New Hidden Fields
