Let's get your app + Glide covered in your local news

Our community is the foundation of so much of what we do at Glide. We’re so grateful for every bug report, feature request, and :heart: that we receive on this forum. Sometimes we even worry that @Jeff_Hager and @George_B have become addicted to helping others here!

We’re a young company and very few people know about us yet, but we have a lot to offer and we’re a leading player in the emerging trend of ‘no-code’ app development. This is a huge story that hasn’t broken yet in any of the major news outlets. The people who like to make predictions in Silicon Valley tend to list ‘no-code’ at the top of their lists for 2020, for what that’s worth.

I’d like to collaborate with you on breaking this story, but in a community-driven way. I’m looking for ten community members who will work directly with me to get stories published in local news about your apps built with Glide.

The pitch:

  • You’ve built an app with Glide for your community, local business, etc.
  • You’re non-technical, but you had a specific idea or insight that you were able to bring to life with Glide.
  • Your app is a success–people are actually using it!

If you find someone to cover this story, I am at your disposal for a phone call or Skype to explain Glide, no-code, discuss your app project, etc. If you’re interested, here’s what you should do:

  • Figure out the local news source that could cover this story
  • Find their story submission/contact form
  • Submit a story idea about the app you’ve built and the impact it’s had on your community
  • Include these links about Glide: Glide in 90 seconds and Launch Article.
  • Tell them that Glide’s CEO (me!) is available to talk to them about it at any time.

If they respond with interest, give them my email: david@glideapps.com

Anyone who gets a story published with a link to glideapps.com before April 1 will get a year of Glide Pro, a Glide t-shirt, and a free ticket to our first Glide conference (we haven’t planned one yet but we will!).

I look forward to telling our stories together!

Great idea David. I was having the same to do in IL.
I’m building an app for a non profit org for the coming holiday which they will distribute to thousands of people. The app allows users to choose a synagogue in which they will put a donation box for collecting money for the poor (the non profit org is helping hundreds of families every year).
I was planing to try and make an article in the biggest tech on line site in Israel so your mail came on the best time :wink:.
Will keep you updated.

Challenge accepted! We’re launching Maricopa Healthy in Phoenix, AZ in early March so this is perfect timing; we planned on trying to get some earned media. I’ll keep you posted. Thx

Yes, I may have a problem. Maybe someday I’ll work on my own projects. :wink:

I’d be interested in but not ready to deploy, even if I have already end customers ready to try, test, and pay for my app. A White app fully customizable for shops, restaurants, bars, plumbers, grandma and who you want, for personal or business purposes.

I need some additional features for which I am currently looking for workarounds, plugging to other apps or frameworks.

Haha, I would love it - I just miss the “success” part of the story :wink:

Amazing idea @david, I will do my best to achieve something like that in the Brazilian market, I know that you already have other users here and I think that Glide is an amazing tool for many business in Brazil.

I worked with Thomas Dahm - an expert here - to create the unDavos app during the World Economic Forum week in Davos end of Jan - and plan to do a lot more with it during the year. Happy to share the story! Now sitting in SF working out how to replicate the people-location app, Dopplr in Glide - and some other cool things.
