  6. THE WAY FOR MAKING SMOOTH RELATIONSHIP WITH THE COMMUNITY •

    Talk as an individual • Make allies in the organization • Change Personnel • Business partner and community are different. Both are important. • Pay respect to each other
  7. TALK AS AN INDIVIDUAL

  8. TALK AS AN INDIVIDUAL • Sometimes you may want to

    get in the community and sell your products, but this is a completely wrong way. • The Community is not a sales representative. If you want to sale your products or services though the community, the community members will surely reject you. • When in Rome, do as the Romans do. • When you communicate with members in the community, first, forget about your organization and talk as an individual.
  9. MAKE SUPPORTERS IN THE ORGANIZATION

  10. MAKE SUPPORTERS IN THE ORGANIZATION • A number of Developer

    Relation personnel in small companies / organizations, Start Up is small. • If you are the only person who currently is in charge of the Developer Relation, make supporters inside the company. • Do not try to solve everything alone with your own abilities, make friends and move on together.
  11. CHANGE PERSONNEL

  12. CHANGE PERSONNEL • There is inevitably "compatibility" among humans. •

    If there are 100 people, there are 10 people who are poor compatibility with you. • Human relationship is illogical, complex, and emotional. • Even if you try mix water and oil, you probably will not go well.
  13. BUSINESS PARTNER AND COMMUNITY ARE DIFFERENT. BOTH ARE IMPORTANT.

  14. BUSINESS PARTNER AND COMMUNITY ARE DIFFERENT. BOTH ARE IMPORTANT. •

    If you are a member of the company, there should be business partners. • The user community is different from business partner. • It is one of the most important tasks for Developer Relation personnel to protect the independence of the user community. • This doesn’t mean to ignore what business partners say.
  15. PAY RESPECT TO EACH OTHER

  16. PAY RESPECT TO EACH OTHER • The relationship with the

    user community is like a business but not a business. • The most important thing to grow such a relationship is to "respect each other". • Understand each difference and diversity. • If mutual respect can be paid, you are able to overcome the problem.
