Competition is Not a Bad Word

Does the word “competition” make you cringe?  It shouldn’t.  The very fact that you do have competition means that there is a market for your services, and that is a good thing. 

Competition forces you to strive to do your best.  It can even help your business.  When someone goes to one of your competitors and finds that they can’t deliver what is needed, they will look elsewhere.  If you make yourself visible and available, you could be the one that gets their business. 

One thing you must do when you are in a business that has lots of competition is make sure people know about you. 

You don’t necessarily have to spend a ton of money on advertising, but you do need to make sure that people can easily find you when they need your services.  Join your local chamber of commerce.  Put your number in the Yellow Pages.  Run a small classified ad in the paper where appropriate.  And don’t forget to distribute business cards, fliers, and other promotional materials.

Providing good service is very important when it comes to rising above the competition.  Treat every job as if it is your most important, and listen to your customers’ questions and suggestions.  There are a lot of businesses out there that lose sight of those simple but vital things.  By putting your customers’ needs first, you will come out ahead of your competitors who don’t. 

Another thing that can put you a step ahead of the competition is offering other services that complement your main offerings.  You don’t even have to do the services yourself.  You can outsource them, or simply offer referrals to others who provide them.  For example, if you are a web designer, you could team up with content writers, graphic designers, and web programmers to offer complete website solutions.  This approach will allow your customers to come to you and receive all of the services they need. 

Competition can be intimidating, but it is not such a bad thing.  By maintaining visibility and keeping your customers happy, you can rise above the competition and get your share of the market.
