How to find developers to use my product?


We are developing back-end web services for app developers. We developed Windows Phone 7 client and working on clients for other platforms. How can we reach developers (especially Windows Phone 7) to use our product considering we don't have a budget for advertisement?

  • If you don't want to spend money, I would suggest let people try your software for free. To do this you can simply start a discussion on an internet forum for WP7 geeks (there're plenty of them) or other forums for developers. But there is one thing you can't do - you can't say you have a new product which is caled X and you look for people to give it a try as this would be considered as spam.

You should do blogging and do technology evangelism to create awareness of your project. If you have money you can advertise too.
