Hey, I thought I would share a project I have been dabbling away at for a while.
What is it?
It is an online directory for people in the Wellington tech/startup scene, where you can get in touch with people that you want to either 1) hire for short-term work, 2) collaborate with on projects or 3) connect with to ask for advice/network.
Where the idea came from?
The idea for this was partially inspired by the community facewall of our coworking space and Webflow experts. I wanted to make it easier for people within our community to connect with each other.
What does it do?
Everyone who creates a profile gets access to our Slack channel. Whenever someone messages them via their profile they receive a direct message via a bot set up with Zapier.
How did I build it?
I created a few collections in the Webflow CMS, automated some of the workflows through Mailchimp and Zapier.
Thanks to the Webflow team for building such an awesome product. Two and a half years ago there was no shot on earth I would have built a website of any kind, now I can make websites that people pay me for, and I kind build stuff like this on the side.
