Sometimes before building the actual product you might want to test the waters. A landing page with a waitlist form is stupid simple to create even without code and shows if your potential users are interested in it or not.
First, you have to create the landing page. Webflow offers templates so this should be easy. Pick one that already has a form included!
Webflow is a design and web development tool, ecommerce, CMS, and hosting platform.
OK, now that you have your landing page you need to get some traffic. If you're just validating your idea you most likely don't have any social media following or other means of getting traffic so buying paid traffic might be a good alternative here.
Google Ads is an online advertising platform, where advertisers bid to display brief advertisements, service offerings, product listings, or videos to web users. It can place ads both in the results of search engines like Google Search and on non-search websites, mobile apps, and videos.
Great, your form can be submitted but seeing the results is not that easy. This is where automations help–once the form gets submitted it triggers our automation which we can make do anything we want.

Make is a leading visual platform for anyone to design, build, and automate—from tasks and workflows to apps and systems—without coding.
We'd recommend sending form submissions to apps like Notion or Airtable. It's easy to view them, leave notes and export if needed.
Notion is a single space where you can think, write, and plan. Capture thoughts, manage projects, or even run an entire company — and do it exactly the way you want.
Airtable is a platform that makes it easy to build powerful, custom applications. These tools can streamline just about any process, workflow, or project—and best of all, you can build them without ever learning to write a single line of code. (Spoiler alert: that’s what low-code/no-code is all about.) Our customers use Airtable to do everything from tracking job interviews to managing large-scale video production, and thousands of companies use Airtable to run their most important business processes every day.
It also might be useful to get a Slack message every time the form gets submitted so you always know how many submissions you're getting and if you should amp that ad campaign up.
Slack is a messaging app for business that connects people to the information they need. By bringing people together to work as one unified team, Slack transforms the way organizations communicate.
