How to research your competitors

Famous designer Tommy Hilfiger once said, “I looked at my competitors and I thought that, If they could do it, I could do it. And if, they are popular and doing well, I could compete with them.”

Ignoring your competitors is dangerous, because you can guarantee that they aren’t ignoring you.

Whatever it is you do, it is almost certain that there are other companies out there offering a similar product or service to yours. In any crowded marketplace, you need as much information and insight as possible to gain an edge over your competitors.

Simply knowing what they offer is not enough.

With today’s software and technology, you have the ability to know more about your competition than ever before.

In this informative session you will learn:

– How to identify your competitors (even the not-so-obvious ones)
– How to compare their content & presence to yours
– How to compare their performance on Google with yours
– How to compare their social media engagement with yours
– How to prioritise what to work on
