Empowering Non-Technical Founders to Bring Ideas to Life

As You Like It helps founders build, design and launch MVPs that can get their ideas out in the real world and start testing the market.

What is As You Like It about and what led you to launch it?

Before I started this company I dipped my toes into the SaaS world myself. Me and my co-founders built products for hours upon hours. Months were going by and we still didn’t have an MVP not to mention a final product. 

The second SaaS I started was a bit better. I saw how we’re focused on building and not selling. All of us were just coding, designing and what not, tunnel-visioning into the nitty-gritty technical stuff only. 

Then a few years went by, and it all settled down into my mind and all of a sudden I could go through my previous attempts and point out our mistakes with ease, seeing exactly where we should’ve spent our time better. 

That’s when I started compiling a list of the problems in my head. Then some more time passed and I realized if I had someone who’s already been through the whole journey with me we’d be a lot more likely to succeed. So now having been through multiple startups I thought that since I had this problem, other people might have it too. I started digging around the web and yes, indeed many people had the same story, and for the non-technical ones, oh man, what a disaster - they couldn’t figure out what tech stack they need, how to hire programmers, designers, what to build, what to focus on, and the list goes on.

 That’s when I decided to launch As You Like It to help out other founders get a perfect MVP and focus on growth. 

Our approach? You first, always. Before we jump to any of the technical work, we make sure to nail down all the requirements you’ve got, and only when everything is clear, jump to design. After that we’ll show you prototypes, make sure to address any comments and concerns of yours and then build out everything. The whole process is enclosed by weekly progress report & feedback meetings, where we’ll be listening to you, making sure we’re building what you want.

 

How will you help me go from an idea to MVP?

Crafting your vision is not just about having an idea; it's about nurturing it into a tangible masterpiece. At As You Like It, we understand the importance of creativity in every step of the journey. Our work empowers founders like you to unleash your creativity without constraints. Whether it's a web application, mobile app or both - We’ll provide the means and support you need to bring your unique vision to life.

We don’t want to just create an MVP for you. We want to see you continue iterating on a solid foundation. Our development and design process is such that you can continue expanding your product after your MVP is ready. We ensure that you can confidently test the market on a robust foundation. But our support doesn't end there. We prepare you for seamless product evolution by providing comprehensive demos, meticulous codebase documentation, and handing over all design assets. This ensures you have complete control over the destiny of your product, whether you choose to continue collaborating with us for expansion or in some other way.

Another part of the journey is communication. At As You Like It, transparency is our mantra. We believe in keeping you informed and involved throughout the whole process. Building an MVP shouldn't break the bank. With transparent pricing and no hidden fees, we make it easy for you to get started without worrying about your budget.

Last but not least, since you’re subscribed to such an amazing newsletter, we wanted to give something back and offer you the chance to work with us at an affordable price. So you don’t break the bank before you’ve even started generating revenue. 

What’s your process like? 

We kick things off with a comprehensive discovery phase to understand your vision, goals, and target audience. We make sure to review all your requirements in detail, and ask you for any clarifications that might be needed, or something you might want to consider adding/removing before we jump to building.

Next up our talented designers pick up the requirements and create prototypes that bring your ideas to life and resonate with your audience. We’ll show you these in the progress calls we do, gather your feedback and make any adjustments that might be necessary. After that we make sure to call you one last time to confirm everything and begin the next phase.

We then get to the development part of the project - the developers will turn these prototypes into fully functional MVPs using the latest technologies and best practices. Making sure to go step by step, writing clean and extensible code. And apart from that, documenting everything, making demo videos and forwarding those to you. That way you can be fully included into the process and call us out on anything! 

Final step: launching - we’ll assist you in launching your MVP and provide ongoing support to ensure its success. Hosting, maintaining it, and scaling it according to your needs is something we do!

What do I get if I decide to work with you?

At the heart of everything we do is a commitment to your success. We measure our success not by the number of projects we complete, but by the impact we make on the lives of our founders and the happy clients they get. Whether you're launching a passion project or revolutionizing an industry, we're dedicated to helping you achieve your goals and realize your dreams. Your success is our success, and we'll stop at nothing to see you thrive.
