Internet Marketing Tips – How to Survive and Even Prosper in a "Saturated" Market
One of the common debates in Internet marketing is whether this niche or that niche is too “saturated”. Since there isn’t a common standard for “saturation”, I think we can only agree that most markets now are more competitive than before. At the same time, there are more buyers. The question is whether the rate of increase in buyers is staying at the same rate of increase of saturation.
In any case, if you find the competition in your market increasing and your competitors, what can you do? What will you do? Here are some ideas to survive and even prosper in a more competitive Internet marketing environment:
Idea #1: Do More ‘Win-Win’ Joint Ventures
If there are more competitors in your market, it means there are more potential joint venture partners! The idea is to do a lot of joint ventures but not too many that it dilutes your customer base. But doing a few JV’s every month is a surefire way to grow your business by tapping onto the customer lists of your competitors.
Idea #2: Increase Your Number Of Leads
One way to out-market your competition is to get more leads than them. One of the keys to marketing is to acquire leads, of which a proportion will become your customers. Hence, the more leads you have coming in to your business every day, the more money you will make.
Idea #3: Differentiate Aggressively
If everyone in your market is saying the same thing, one way to get more business is to differentiate yourself. Find a way of saying something differently, or brand your business such that it stands out from the crowd. Don’t be a sheep in the herd; be noticeable.
Idea #4: Provide Higher Quality Content
One way to stand out is to provide higher quality content that opens your readers’ minds and gets them to think and act. If your competition is purely operating a marketing pitch fest, start providing superior content, as this will draw your market’s attention to you, and away from your competitors.
