Issue #25

Hello, Daniela here πŸ‘‹

I built CtrlAlt.CC to make it easier for you to find helpful tools for startup tasks & now I’m bringing a few cool products to your inbox, every so often.

Let’s dive in πŸŠβ€β™€οΈ

Product of the week #25

So I know we’ve looked at AI tools for 2 weeks in a row now 😬 which is why we’ll do just one more and then we’re taking a break and moving on to a different category, promise!

The AI space is just fascinating rn and I think testing all of these tools helps me stay away from building my own AI tool (but never say never πŸ‘€)

Website link: is a very easy to use tool that makes getting rid of unwanted stuff in a photo, way to easy!

How? Well this is the whole process: upload your photo -> use the brush to mark the thing /things that needs removed -> blink -> your clean photo is now ready 🀯

You also have a cool “on/off” switch which lets you see the before & after and that’s pretty much it!

Making things simple is very hard. So long may tools that do one thing really really well, live and may photoshop & the likes rest in peace πŸͺ¦ as AI is slowly taking over all of these tasks and making the processes quicker & easier than ever.

And from where I stand, they are still just that. Tools. Quicker, cheaper, better tools but not close to putting any person out of a job just yet πŸ˜‰

This week’s maker story comes from a no-code maker & writer focusing on other no-code acquisitions πŸ‘€

Also, she is helping me test a different type of AMA that will hopefully create less friction & encourage more people to get answers to their questions 🀩
(TLDR; visit this link for the AMA:

Here’s the link to Katt’s No-Code Exits newsletter:

And here’s the story behind it:

Once upon a time…on a sunny summer day in Leuven, Belgium….  I noticed that every tweet about my recent acquisition (of a small side project made with No-Code) went bonkers.

So I followed the pull. In 30 minutes  I created a Substack, went for the first best name that popped in my head and chose an icon from a stock website as logo.  I announced it on Twitter and 12 hours later I had around 250 subscribers. I quickly published my own story and left on holiday for 2 weeks.  When I returned, I had 610 subscribers. Newsletter Market Fit: Check. Now (3 months later) I’m at 2000+ subscribers and have around 800 USD of ad revenue per month. 

For my readers, I always feel a bit guilty when I display ads. So I really go the extra mile and try to think outside the box to have ads that add value for my readers (It has been a success because in an audience survey there was someone who only reads the newsletter for the ads ;-)). And this also results in good results for the advertiser and some long-term partnerships with some. So it’s really a win-win.

If I look back now on my journey I would never have thought one thing would lead to another:

  1. Made small No-Code Side Project
  2. No-Code Side Project got Acquired
  3. Stared No-Code Exits because of all the questions I received about it
  4. It also got an acquisition offer for No-Code Exits (but I said no)
  5. And now I’m making an mvp to validate an idea also in the No-Code / acquisition space.

So conclusion: don’t wait for this huge idea. Start launching some side projects, learn by doing and listen to your audience/users/readers/… Who knows what I will be doing in 12 months πŸ™‚
