Where to find software developers in order to convert them to customers

The idea that helps Software Developers

Software Developers want to collaborate efficiently on coding projects. However, they can't get it because they struggle with version control and code merging.

Therefore, they need to use your solution, e.g. CodeCollab.

Collaborative Coding Platform : CodeCollab is a collaborative coding platform that helps software developers collaborate efficiently on coding projects by simplifying version control, facilitating code merging, and providing real-time collaboration features. Of course it is much better than the stuff from CodeSync, or GitCollab!

How to find Software Developers

You can get insights about the pain points of software developers if you listen to them carefully, either in person or online. Listening online is much easier because you need not ask them for a customer interview but you can observe them talking about their problems, out there in their natural habitat. They won’t even notice that you are there, watching and listening to them.

The process, step by step

One process that we can totally recommend is this:

  • Find out where software developers hang out (Reddit, Mastodon, etc.)
  • Read what problems they talk about, and how urgent they are to them. (Did they try any solutions, yet? Did they spend money on anything, yet? Did they even cobble a homegrown solution together?)
  • Enter the conversation: Help them with tips, ask more about their situation and why they are in pain.
  • If you find recurring questions or pet peeves of software developers, create some helpful content for them (e.g. a blog post, a podcast episode, or a video) and share it with them for free, in the same conversations. They will be delighted.
  • At the end of the blog post, invite them to use your solution: Collaborative Coding Platform.

I described the process here in my blog post: Identify a hungry audience.

If you do this manually, it may take you hours each day. Automate it, with a little help from the AI in CustomerPing!

Step 1 to find software developers

To get started, edit the values in the following 3 input fields and click “Search software developers”.

This is what will happen

  • An AI will brainstorm 5 good search keyword phrases for you to find software developers and their pain points in online forums on the internet.
  • With one click, you can search for each keyword phrase right away.
  • CustomerPing will present the search results to you.
  • If you think that one of those results looks like software developers wrote it, you can create a “customer radar station” on the forum where the post came from.
  • You describe what makes a post relevant to your business.
  • CustomerPing will “ping” you 24h a day, whenever software developers complain about their pet peeve: They struggle with version control and code merging.
  • Good for you because this is something that you can solve with collaborative Coding Platform, right?

What to do when you get a “customer ping”

When such an alert appears on your mobile phone, you simply tap on it and join the conversation in the online forum.

Help software developers to reach their goal: To collaborate efficiently on coding projects.

They will get to know, like and trust you. Eventually, they will buy your solution: Collaborative Coding Platform.
