[Energize & Excel] 7 Energizing Techniques to cultivate Excitement and Connection between Developers and Customers – The Art of Mutual Appreciation

We’ve all been there, haven’t we? 

A boardroom filled with Developer jargon flying across the table, whilst customer’s faces assume an expression usually reserved for high-level trigonometry. 

If this scenario gives you an uncomfortable chuckle, you’re in the right place! 

Welcome aboard to a journey that promises to banish this perplexity, forge a more powerful alliance and turn our customers and developers into an enviable partnership.

In this hyper-competitive realm, there’s nothing more crucial than a jolly good relationship between developers and customers. Are they friends yet? No? Don’t fret.

We have got some tricks up our sleeves to cultivate this connection. So, hold tight, as we unfurl our seven energizing techniques that will not just fan the excitement but also seal the bond between developers and customers.

1) Feel the Excitement, Spread the Excitement 

Excitement, it’s not just an emotion, it’s a catalyst for action. So, developers, don your shiny armor of passion when you speak about your work and customers, shower some love, why don’t you?

2) Speak their Language, Hear their Words

Transparency and communication are the backbone of this bond. Master the art of techno-jargon translations and customer chit-chat interpretations. It’s like decoding the Morse code, one dot and dash at a time.

3) The Dance of Progress

Progress, who doesn’t love a good progress story? Be it squashing a pesky bug or a nifty feature implementation, keep the customers in the loop. Send out updates, create a forum for feedback, or better yet, set up a customer advisory board.

4) Empathy, Not Sympathy

Listen to customer feedback, even if it’s not all roses and sunshine. Address their concerns, learn from them and most importantly, show them that you care.

5) Celebrating Successes Together

Here’s where the fun begins. Celebrate each milestone, whether it’s a new product release or a feature rollout. Throw a virtual party, send out a company-wide email, or just high-five (virtually, of course)!

6) Collaboration and Tools

Involve customers in the development process through beta testing or user feedback sessions. Tools like Jira, Confluence, and Slack can be your best pals in facilitating this process. When customers feel involved, they’ll be more excited about the final outcome.

7) Reward and Recognize

Lastly, reward both the developers and customers for their hard work and feedback. Remember, a little appreciation goes a long way.

So there you have it. 

Our seven-step programme to energize and excel in the developer-customer connection.
