First: WHAT IS A PERSONAL BRAND?

Before you build anything, design a wireframe diagram and define use cases for how a target user will navigate the app. That’ll get you a good basis if you want to pursue seed funding or hiring a contracted dev.
all programmers hate you already
Also, try to validate via the wireframes. Anything you can do with low cost low fidelity will lead to a better product and higher likelihood of success.
Everyone has an app idea but does the world need more apps?
Yes, hire someone.
(My team and I often do Discovery projects to help people work through the initial idea, and help them decide if and how to build it, following a similar set of questions as the ones posted above. It really helps)
You tried no code. If ya dm me and tell me gist of what type of product your trying to build, I could point you in the direction of what tools you might be able to use. Tbh, some form of Bubble io, airtable, and zapier could do a lot
Hire a contractor
Share your idea on Fishbowl and if it’s compelling enough you might just wind up with a co-founder!
Also depending on what the idea is, check out no-code app building platforms and maybe try building it yourself!
What type of an app is this? Any specific area?
This blog will give you an idea where to start https://medium.com/@gobiraj/i-am-not-technical-how-can-i-get-an-app-built-ffe33cc776c8
Your first step should be asking yourself if your idea solves a problem actual people have or if it’s just a nice to have. It should always be a problem solver. From there, build wireframes and perhaps a low fidelity prototype (no code needed. Use marvel or figma). This prototype should be for an mvp not a whole fleshed out app.
Step 3 should be getting feedback from potential users. Remember, you need more than friends and family here.
If you’re idea has legs, you’ll know by this stage. Now you can hire a contractor if need be
I don’t know much about these bubble.io or other no code tech. My two cents:
If your product is for enterprises, they don’t buy software based on mock-ups or through away code. Any enterprise will have high scrutiny of your software for vulnerabilities. Their enterprise security team will evaluate it first. They look at scalability, reliability, and security. They don’t want to put anything in front of their customers or employees that is not tested and proven.
If your product is for consumers, can it take load of 2000 downloads? Is it secure enough to share personal information? If your app is crashing then your product will get very poor reviews and people either delete or go away from your app. You will also run into the risk of legal issues if you don’t protect the privacy properly.
If you are really serious about commercialization of your product/idea, look for people with serious coding and product architecture skills. Share your equity and inspire them so they love you idea as much as you love and join you. Remember, entrepreneurship journey is all about selling your idea to your initial team, your investors, and your beta clients!
