Tip #4: Be Relevant and Differentiate Yourself From Other Extensions

Some additional tips from our valued developers:

“Wherever possible, use plugins (preferably on methods that have an @api annotation) to implement your functionality. This will reduce the scope for possible conflicts with other extensions, and lessen support issues later down the road (and who doesn't love that?).” – Fooman

“Chances are you're investing in a Magento 2.0 platform for two major reasons: 1) you want a better client side experience along with, 2) an improved, more nimble usability for your team. Why not hold the same standards to your tech stack? Stick to extensions that talk with each other both on the front end as well as the back end—meaning they make the most of the audience and data you have already acquired! For example, if one technology collects real time browsing data or even social influencer data, ensure they're sharing that data in real time with your A/B testing or personalization provider. The data you collect is only as great as what you do with it!” Addshoppers
