I use webflow over squarespace or wix just cause it lends me more control and basically takes same amount of time to build stuff(it takes a bit of a learning curve) but once u get there, there is SOOO MUCH you can do with no code.
layering zapier + ifttt on top of webflow just makes me build super powerful mvps that can do almost everything i can think an mvp needs to do. The cool thing that once you have an mvp that powerful, you dont need to go build a custom website once u find there is demand, you can pretty much continue relying on this stack for a year or two until you rlly nail u product market fit, raise money and then start investing in ur infrastructure.
We have built our entire pipeline on airtable. With some help of IFTTT and Zapier, all pitches we receive from email, Angellist, Website and other channels elegantly get populated in Airtable. We also mark the sources of deals, reason for rejection/investment...etc and think we have a 360 view on everything we get and it is all done without any manual input from any of us.
I think people underestimate how critical CS is. Since 1Password has all my passwords, credit cards and other personal info, there is no way in hell I'll be discontinuing my subscription anytime soon. Actually 3$/month is very cheap, I think 1password is the lowest subscription I pay now ( and I pay for A LOT OF THINGS). Don't give them any ideas but if they raise it to 9.99$ I would happily pay.
This is coming from someone who started with gmail, then migrated to outlook, then migrated to Inbox by Gmail then migrated to Astro (acquired by slack) and now Superhuman user and fan. Besides the ones I mentioned I think I tried all available products (paid and free) including airmail and others.
Superhuman's magic comes from the fact that they actually train you to use email better. Its weird but the app always has subtle suggestions on how to do things faster and more efficiently . It took me 2-4 weeks to get the hang of it but once you do, gmail feels like it was built in the 1990s. I got so good at their shortcuts that I find myself using them in other apps as airtable and notion.
It is the most expensive email client for sure but if you get more than 50 emails/day..it is TOTALLY WORTH IT
I think the problem with Slack at least for us, is that its way too easy to jump on a call and we fear people might use this in a way that is counter-productive. We stick with Zoom meeting that are 90% scheduled ahead of time, so everyone can have their "focus time"
