How to make your software more attractive and profitable: How to design your software in order to appeal to customers
Software engineer Adam Smith wrote a book on this topic, Designing for People: How Software Engineers Design for Success.
As he notes, “The key thing to remember about this is that you cannot design your product to appeal exclusively to people with particular interests.”

In other words, you have to take the value you can bring to the table from your customers and make it more accessible to them.

You can use these principles to create a more personal product and your software will be more valuable to your customers.
