  29. 29. But how?<br />
  30. 30. Let’s break it down<br />
  31. 31. Establish Target Segments<br />Engage Developer Channel<br />Set Industry Goal<br />
  32. 32. target segments<br />An API should extend your core business<br />into a new part of the market<br />
  33. 33. target segments<br />Your core business already has <br />key performance indicators<br />
  34. 34. target segments<br />So apply your KPIs to the new market segment you’re targeting with your APIs<br />
  35. 35. target segments<br />What is the market impact you need to create in order to succeed as a business?<br />
  36. 36. target segments<br />What does the targetsegment need that it is not getting from you today?<br />
  37. 37. target segments<br />The answer will be the foundation of your API strategy.<br />
  38. 38. developer channel<br />In most cases the channel for your API will be developers, but what do they need?<br />
  39. 39. developer channel<br />A profit motive.<br />
  40. 40. developer channel<br />Here are the leading profit models for developers today<br />
  41. 41. developer channel<br />App sales<br />
  42. 42. developer channel<br />In-app purchases<br />
  43. 43. developer channel<br />Affiliate royalty<br />
  44. 44. developer channel<br />Your advertising spend<br />
  45. 45. developer channel<br />Market awareness of their offering<br />
  46. 46. industry goal<br />If you don’t know where you’re going, you definitely won’t get there<br />
  47. 47. industry goal<br />Partnerships and platform businesses are very different things.<br />
  48. 48. industry goal<br />Partnerships are formed to serve a known set of entities<br />
  49. 49. industry goal<br />A partner API should be traceable to each partner’s relationship<br />
  50. 50. industry goal<br />And support end-to-end business processes<br />
  51. 51. industry goal<br />A platform exists to create massive and unpredictable opportunities<br />
  52. 52. industry goal<br />All your technology, support, and community decisions will be about surviving the scale of adoption<br />
  53. 53. That’s the strategy dimension.<br />
  54. 54. The execution dimension is what you already know.<br />
  55. 55. Planning.<br />Management.<br />Organization.<br />
  56. 56. Putting all this in context gives us a map for our API strategy <br />
  57. 57.
