Understanding the word "Competition" and other stuff.
I was reading some back lessons of Kyle (the co-owner of WA) and comments made by the students here at WA about setting a niche and keywords and the meaning of competition, etc.
A thought came into my head related to competition and to understand how it works and also use it better. Now this is just my thoughts, so if it works then no harm done.
The root word for competition is compete right? So imagine this: Door A Door B Door C, etc.
Door A is the most popular door because everyone is entering this door. ( the door represents a keyword) You ask why is everyone going in this door? (Someone answers you and says because it has good food. Well you try to get in and guess what? IT IS JAMMED PACKED AND DIFFICULT TO BREATHE - are you getting an idea where this is going? Moving along. You look and see Door B. Although there are lots of people going in, the numbers are less than door A. You try again to get in Door B but find it also is jammed packed.
You try to go to Door C. Hmm this might just be what I need. The numbers are less than A & B and so the competition for my niche, (product, info, etc.) probably will have a better chance at getting quality customers and feedback.
Here's another way to understand competition-You are in the Olympics. Downhill ski racing. You look around and there are hundreds of competitors for the Gold. What will distinguish you from the rest of them? You want to win but what do you need to do to accomplish this? You have to be UNIQUE. Wha?. Unique?
Find a way to use your keywords better than your competition. Get a better understanding of your niche. Dig deeper and find the low hanging fruit( I just had to put that in-smile) Just do it. REMEMBER: we are all unique in so many ways so keep looking for unique words to use as a platform or springboard to success in a business you love.
I hope this help because that is my aim to be of help and not a hindrance. Oh one more tip: KEEP A CHECK ON YOUR SPELLING PLEASE. It makes for better reading.
