How Turtle Powers its Web App with Typeform and Webflow
No code tools are enabling businesses to build amazing things — without writing code. Vlad Lokshin, founder of Turtle, uses a combination of Webflow and Typeform to build a website that empowers developers and teams across the world. In this post, we’ll peel back the curtains on exactly how Turtle is able to accomplish this. “I’m going to build new features for my website without writing any code.” A decade ago people would raise an eyebrow if they heard you say that. But times are changing. We live in a time where no code tools are on the rise and the solutions they offer are now being adopted by startups and large corporations — who despite knowing how to code, choose not to. Today, you really can build a web app, and an entire business, with just a vision, a willingness to learn, a computer, and a stable internet connection. The barrier to entry has decreased ten-fold, and that’s exciting. It means more creators are empowered to build the things they’ve dreamt about. This is why companies like Turtle excite me. It’s a reminder that there’s no better time to be an innovator than today. What is Turtle? Turtle is where project management meets freelance development. Created by Vlad Lokshin, Turtle’s vision is to empower freelance developers and companies looking to hire freelancers for contract work. On one end, it’s a project management tool, similar to Asana or Trello, with a built in chat system like Slack — allowing teams to stay organized and collaborate. On the other end, it’s a marketplace for freelance developers — similar to Upwork or Toptal. Turtle’s entire marketing website is built in Webflow, and they use Typeform to power their lead generation efforts and onboarding process for freelance developers. In this post, we’ll show you how Turtle built out their application process using no code tools. In the meantime, you can read more about how Vlad moved Turtle from concept to customers. Identifying Turtle’s goal Before we get into the nitty gritty of how Turtle integrated Typeform on their website, it’s important to understand their goals. Turtle is a marketplace for freelance developers. This means they need both freelance developers to sign up and teams looking to hire them. Think supply and demand. Turtle needs to create an application process for developers and an application process for teams looking to hire those developers. This means, at its core, Turtle has 2 different flows with 2 different typeforms. Turtle has also recently released 2 more typeforms for their programs around Turtle for Startups and Credit for companies during these tough times — making them have a total of 4 typeform flows. Why Webflow and Typeform? If you’re reading this, chances are you already know what Webflow is and what it can do for you. But you may or may not know how adding Typeform to your Webflow website can enable you to build a powerful application process. Typeform allows users to create beautiful forms and surveys. Think of it as a more personal way for people and businesses to exchange information at scale. Much of Typeform’s goal is to turn data collection into an experience, and they do a great job of doing just that. » Read More
