Regardless if you are marketing a product or a service to your clients, or indeed if your clients are mostly other businesses (B2B) or consumers (B2C) you should make time to find out what your competitors are doing. You can do this in several ways, monitor their web site, social media channels, business networking, word of month etc.
How well do you know your main competitors?
Do you know what services / products they offer to their clients? Do you offer the same or are their clear differences that make your business better?
How well are your competitors doing? Do you get the impression the business is growing and that their revenues are up?
Be honest with yourself and take some time to draw your conclusions. Once you have an understanding of who your main competitors are and what they are doing you can start to identify ways in which your business offers a better service or product. This process can also highlight areas in which you feel you have to improve in order to out perform the companies around you.
Understanding your competitors and identifying areas that you are stronger can open the door to new opportunities.
