How to beat your business competitors? So you want to be a tough business person who wants to be on the top of the competition? Winning the business competition is not an easy task. You may find yourself competing with the toughest opponents in this arena. Fortunately, there is always a way to win a contest. The following will help you win the real wars of doing business.
Be a great spy
Spying is always a good tactic to win any competition. This is because spying is knowing, and we need knowledge to guide us on what to do next. But if you want to gather information that will earn you the greatest profits, you need to pick not the brains of your business foes, but the minds and hearts of your customers. Thus, you should listen to their questions and understand their problems. Then, you should produce products that serve as answers to their questions and solutions to their problems. This is how you will offer the products that will sell the most. Moreover, you must also listen to your workers and employees. So that you can lead and motivate them to productivity. You can’t produce the best products without the best people who will produce them.
Be the first
Be the first, that’s what makes a real entrepreneur. You can either be the person who makes the first product or the first one to revolutionize a certain existing product. The key here is innovation, and that should be directed towards the best satisfaction of your costumers. If you want to beat your competitors, you should always be the one who can offer the first and the best in the market.
Consumers are always choosy when picking brands and products they want to consume. But being on the top doesn’t mean you will be the one who will be picked. People are always craving for something that is unique and different. If you want to beat your competitors, you should provide products or services that only you can provide. They may even be willing to travel just to find you. When your product or service is one of a kind, there is nothing to challenge you.
Beat your worst self
If you really want to win the whole competition, you need to beat your toughest business competitor – your worst self. You need to overcome your fear and your own weaknesses. Most business owners are afraid to lose money. Some even compromise quality to escape from financial losses. What happens is that they are defeated by their own greed, fear and selfishness. Thus, they eventually beaten by other entrepreneurs who are more dedicated to providing quality services and products to clients and customers. So to avoid the taste of defeat, you should always assure that you become the best of yourself.
Unity can be personal or organizational. It can be the unity of the principles, attitudes, values and actions within you or it can be the unity of the people inside your organization. To stand firm against any challenges or competitions, you should possess both of those unities and harmonies. Remember the old saying… united we stand, divided we fall. Moreover, take note that the one thing that can bind all the good qualities of a person and the thing that can connect people is the one thing we call “love”. Love conquers all, isn’t it?
Win the war not the battle
You can be victorious without even going into battle. You just need to win the war. The real war in business isn’t against people, but it should be against the wrongdoings of people. The essence of business competition is not to beat your business rivals and see them falling down to the ground. The real purpose of this competition is to develop every competitor and create a great challenge to better serve their customers. Winning the competition is seeing everyone growing.
To keep everyone in the business world growing, we need cooperation. We need to cooperate with other entrepreneurs to achieve our ultimate goal – to satisfy everyone. By competing with ourselves to be the best of what we can, by defeating our real business opponents (greed, indolence, impatience, lack of creativity, etc.), by networking with other entrepreneurs, and by ensuring that the products we offer guarantee satisfaction, we can achieve that common goal.
The market is as wide and deep as a blue ocean. There are still many unexplored niches out there that are even too much for us to share. We just need to cooperate with each other and continue on finding ways to increase our costumers’ comfort and satisfaction.
