COMPETITION IN A NICHE -Why You Shouldn’t Fear Your Competitors

Be Sociable, Share!

    Often a big concern people have when starting out in any business, is the competition. Often they worry so much about the competition, it becomes a barrier to their success, and they feel like they are on a loose wire in the middle of the ocean surrounded by hungry sharks.  Honestly, competition is why you should succeed at whatever you do.

    Success Regardless of the Competition

    Success Regardless

    It is very easy to feel that it is hopeless to create a business in your niche, when you find out their is a huge amount of competition in it. You begin to let your fear take over your confidence and unfortunately due to it; you feel like giving up. Well don’t do it, make things happen! Whatever your niche may be, take competition as a challenge to find what you can offer that will take away some competition. You are unique and can create something that your competitors aren’t.   By putting in your style to what you do, and finding out what the competition is doing, you can improve on getting a better outlook.

    An example of this, is perhaps your niche is selling skin care products.  You go ahead and check out your competitors sites and see what they are doing to promote the product and read their post and blogs. Then you create your website to cover subjects and data that are more relevant to the product. Be creative when you write your blog and make it relevant to the product of skin care you are trying to promote. Give some brief history of the skin care product and show some comparisons on it. Most importantly, write from the heart and show in your writing the passion you have for the products you promote and create comparisons.

    Just be sure that you are giving content that shows more than what your competitors are writing. Do YouTube or some kind of video to show your audience how it works and be engaging; people would rather interact and work with someone who is entertaining and may put some humor in it, rather than someone who is robotic and stiff.

    Competitors Help Your Success

    Yes it is true. When you have competition and rise to the occasion, it brings out your creativity. Also you can have partnerships with some of these so-called competitors and start to promote one working togetheranother’s websites; Siddharth Joshi the author of American Dreams [Are Made of Ds] said :

    “The best way to kill competition is to partner it”

    Do a referral for your product and make it shine. Everyone of us has a creative side and the ability to do amazing things, we just have to get out there and do it!

    Write something on your website every day or blog, create videos, and make your website stand out. Before you know it, traffic will be coming to your site and you are no longer needing to stress about your competition. Just stay faithful to being consistent with building on your website and blogs and videos; and most importantly on you!

    Overcome Fear and Anxiety

    Many times it is difficult to put aside your fear and anxiety and before you know it you feel overwhelmed and you come to a standstill and just start believing that their is nothing further you can do. You start believing you won’t be able to write as well as your competitors, that their videos are better, their website looks better, etc. When you are getting to this point, you need to step back for a second and allow yourself to get in the right mindset.

    It is when you feel like this, that you have to remind yourself why you are doing this, and what will happen if you give up? You don’t want to get caught up in trying program after program, hoping you’ll find one that will not be so competitive.

    Instead embrace competition, because that is a sign that niche is doing well! You want to be in a niche that has that competition, because it will help you strive to be the best. Even if you are not the best at doing a real professional looking video, find what you are good at and excel at that. Maybe you are good at humor, if that is what helps you to explain things by putting in humor, excel at what makes you, YOU.  Humor is a great way of creativity that draws in the crowds!

    Competition No Longer Is A Concern

    When you start making the best you, and concentrate on what you are really good at, you won’t even be thinking about the competition anymore because you’ll be concentrating so much on building your success, you’ll forget about them, and you will be the one hunting the shark!.  Henry Ford said it best, “The competitor to fear, is the one who never bothered about you at all, but goes on making his own business better all the time.”

      1. Thank you for sharing this. I’m in a pretty big niche and I always fear that there is too much competition and i’m just not going to make it because of this, but i’ve been trying to find ways to stand out and make my content both unique and special. Thanks again for sharing this great information and i’ll be taking your advice and just be consistent and build me website. I know there is room out there for me.

        • Definitely true, don’t ever give up on what you are passionate about just because you think someone else may do it better than you. You are your own unique you and you are the best at what you can personally can add to it, Just put your whole into it, just as I see you are doing from checking out your beautiful website as well.

          Always the best

      2. Definitely a valid feeling to have for all new-comers, like why would someone want my offering over others is a common one.

        It is about providing some x-factor to your website or offering, a point of difference to the status quo.

        Easier said than done depending upon your niche, but its important to start with developing your site and niche under your own guise, so being yourself.

        • Shane ,
          I agree being yourself is a very important factor. I believe if you give value to your offer and provide information with honesty and integrity, you can really help someone to see something they might not have realized and be recommended because of your honesty and worth you give to your articles on your website.

      3. Hello, I agree with you that competition in a niche can be scary for many beginners. A lot of people seeing competition let there fear to take over there confidence and then give up. 
        Partner with the competition is not obvious at first sight but indeed when one think it over it becomes a perfect strategy.
        Promoting a competitors website is an agreement driving traffic to one another.

        • It is true that at first partnering with your competition is not always the most obvious thing to do. However I see so many articles where one is saying this is a scam and that one is a scam; but instead of going head to head, it may be better to see if you can work with your competition and find out if you are able to incorporate each other’s business with the other; I have seen this done quite frequently and both businesses turn out being more successful. I know this won’t work with everything; however I believe many would be surprised at how often it does.

      4. Hi Robert!
        Great post, very inspirational! And I completely agree with you, people should see their competition as a way to improve themselves and keep working harder. I think many people may give up to create a business because of the competition. And it is really intimidating where you have just began. But reading your post remind me, and probably many others, why they created their business and that is possible to keep going and have success. For me, the most difficult part from all the things you mention is overcoming anxiety. It is easier said than done, but as you said, it is necessary to change your mindset, and that needs time. 

        Thank you for helping so many overcome their fear to competition. 

        Best,

        Mariana

        • Mariana,

          I agree overcoming anxiety is so much easier said than done,  One can’t just snap their finger and say (be gone!)  – though it would be nice – huh? But I get it, working on ourselves takes time and sometimes is our biggest challenge.

          Always the Best,

      5. Thank you for the boost. Whenever I check the ranking of my blog posts via Google Incognito, I am disappointed not to see even one of my blog posts on the first page of Google. I was starting to think that my competitors maybe are too good for this game, and I am not that good for them. But then, after reading this blog post of yours, after seeing the encouraging photos, it gave me a boost and encouraged me to continue fighting. Like you said, I should improve my content better than what my competitors are doing. I will take note of that.

        • Don’t worry Gomer YOU GOT THIS!  Always believe in yourself and what you are doing and trust me it WILL come naturally!  

          God Bless,

      6. Liked your article alot,and it resonated with me on a few levels. I am in the make money online niche and as such the competition is hugh!! I had to overcome that fear realizing just how big the internet is and once I narrowed my niche down even further to the older generation and retirees or thinking of retiring it made my fear less. Now I only focus on trying to beat out my competition!

        • Nothing wrong wit friendly competition!

          All the Best

      7. Hi, Robert.
        What an excellent concept to accept the competitors as a boost to increase our creativity.

        We can write on our niche with whatever passion we have but the competitors’ work may ignite the real potential of us up to where we can reach. You are right, in place of wasting our time to establish a home at Mars let us enjoy a seaside villa with lovely neighbors. 

        You eased my anxiety, thanks a lot.

        Warm Regards,
        Gaurav Gaur

        • I love that analogy Guarav!

          Always to your success!’
