API Documentation

Why should I invest in API documentation?

API documentation is a reference resource that allows developers to work with your software or application and integrate it into their API.

Developers are consumers too, and like consumers, they appreciate simple, well-designed, and easy-to-use products. They expect to be able to find the information they need, and they often have the API documentation open all day as a reference. Getting developers over the initial learning curve builds confidence in your product. By understanding the full capability of the API, developers can use more features, and become increasingly committed to your services.

Well-designed API documentation provides the following advantages:

Gives developers confidence in your product

Makes your product easier to use

Encourages developers to use more features

Ensures developers keep using your products

Acts as a sales & marketing tool

Encourages future brand purchases
