While landing pages shouldn’t be do-it-yourself projects, they should be test-it-yourself to make sure everything works as advertised (pun intended).

These interactions are the interface through which your audience commits to an action that will move your relationship forward — or not. What’s In It For You? It’s all about your brand. With [...]

How can you market to developers who tend to be more skeptical than the rest of the general population? The secret to generating leads from developers is that you have to make a compelling offer. That said, if you’re making a pitch to developers, the devil is in the details — and those details are typically deeply technical in nature. Sources of Skepticism Advertising surrounds us, and just when you think there are no more [...]

What the Future Developer Will Look Like

Near Term Predictions of a cyborg-infested world in the near future are probably overblown. While humans have made great strides in using technology to solve medical conditions due to disease or damage, we haven’t quite reached the stage where silicon-based implants are readily available to enhance physical or mental performance in a fully-functioning developer. As of this writing, there aren’t enough silicon chips to keep up with automobile production due to supply chain issues caused by COVID! While not widely available, cyborg technology is steadily advancing in research labs and is reaching limited commercialization. Technology aside, what will the profession [...]

Why Devs Love Their Newsletters

Newsletters remain one of the best means of communicating with your developer audience.  They should be an integral part of your communications campaign, along with email, blogs, and offers.

Take Me To Your Reader Newsletters are a significant commitment in that they must be maintained as an ongoing effort. They should be planned in advance using an editorial calendar.
