Hello 👋, I'm Guglielmo. I'm an Italian Product Designer currently based in Barcelona ☀️ and focusing on making the healthcare experience more human at Docplanner.
In my free time, I'm building incomee.co, the best income/payment tracking app for freelancers and small businesses.
I'm focusing on this project because I believe it's not easy as should be, keeping track of all the earnings and remember when a payment is due or overdue, and this prevents freelancers from planning and making wise decisions. The first problem that makes someone to fail in the project of becoming a freelancer or a successful business is bad financial planning.
How much money I’m making this month? When is a payment due? Is my income increasing or decreasing? Which payment is due today? Which one is overdue? These questions come to mind, and not having a clear answer push us to make wrong decisions and have no peace of mind about our income.
I actually discovered Bubble just a few months ago while reading no coders stories and I was super excited, it was exactly the tool I was looking for. Bubble is a code-free programming language that lets you build and host web applications without engineers.
I'm using it to build the whole web-app, it's an incredible tool, so flexible that you can build almost everything in a short amount of time (asking myself why I didn't discover it before). Building the beta version of Incomee took me around 4 weeks (in part-time mode).
At the moment Incomee is in beta with more than 100 users playing with the platform. I've planned to release 2 important features in the next months: the invoice system and the possibility to accept online payments for all users via Stripe. Bubble let you integrate your app with other platforms through their plugins and this makes the tool so powerful.
I use also Webflow, but in this project only for the landing page. I think it's much easier and more flexible than Bubble in terms of UI design and managing all the responsive aspects of the website.

The no-code industry is evolving a lot and very quickly. We now have more tools than ever to built an MVP of almost any kind of product we have in mind. These tools are incredible because they allow us to built and validate ideas in a few weeks instead of waiting months.
I think Bubble and Webflow are really powerful tools to build a flexible website or web-app. I honestly would love if they could merge into one product 🤯. That could really be a huge game-changer: the flexibility of bubble on creating web-app functionalities and backend with the power of Webflow on creating a super slick layout. The future is so excited for no coders!
