1 Thought from the Team

All the talk about Reddit has gotten me thinking about my own favorite apps and why I use them. My favorite game is Stardew Valley, not just because of its idyllic farm life but because developer ConcernedApe is still launching updates that enable mods to continue adding value to the game, even though it’s been a good seven years since the game’s launch and he doesn’t get any personal profit from continuing to update it. As a result, he has a strong community of advocates and diehard fans who will continue to support his work on other games.

And my favorite productivity app is Sunsama — because they continue listening to their users in prioritizing app updates and send out a newsletter every week featuring productivity tips and a user Q&A, which I’ll regularly read.

One doesn’t have to reach very far to see a pattern here. Both companies continue adding value to the user community long after the initial sale has been made, ensuring user loyalty and advocacy that will go a long way in marketing.

How are you keeping in touch with your users and making them feel valued?
