How to Set Your Company Apart From the Rest: a blog about staying competitive in a tech startup landscape.
When you are just starting out, you have to get the word out about your company. Marketing is all about generating interest in what you do and how you can help others. Here’s how to set yourself apart from the rest of the companies that might be offering similar services.
Make sure you know your audience and what they want. This goes beyond who will buy your product or service; it’s all about finding people who want what you have at the price range you offer it at, including any add-on services that go along with it. Don’t try to sell to everyone, because you will end up getting no one, and your marketing dollars won’t be well spent.
When reaching out to customers, make sure that everything you put out there (including online content, business cards and even your website) looks professional and polished. Using high-quality paper for business cards and brochures will go a long way toward making customers take you seriously as a solid business professional. A poorly designed logo or website will give them a negative first impression.
Lastly, show people why they should do business with you instead of someone else. Maybe your product is better quality

But there’s good news: despite all the noise, it still isn’t too late to get in on the action.
And if you’re willing to go above and beyond, you can set yourself apart from the rest of the pack.

Top 5 Reasons Your Company Will Fail in 2012

The days of the tech startup bubble have passed, and there’s no time to waste! If you want to stay competitive, you’ll need to make some serious changes this year, or else your company will be dead in the water by 2013.
I know it can be tempting to try and compete with the big guys on price. But don’t. It’s a race to the bottom, and you’ll always lose.

They made sure that every customer service rep had a lot of autonomy, and could bend over backward for customers without having to ask for permission first. When people called in with an order that was too big for them to fulfill, they sent flowers as an apology!
That’s what I mean by “something that doesn’t scale.” But when you’re small, that’s good! It means something your competitors can’t copy because they’d have to hire so many people they’d go bankrupt before they saw any revenue from it.
It’s much easier to build a big business around something that doesn’t scale than something that does. And once you’ve got the ball rolling, you can start adding automation so you can get bigger while still keeping your advantage over your
There are many people in the world who are smarter than you. There are also many people who know more than you, and there are many people who have more experience than you. But there is only one person on the planet who is better at being you than you: that person doesn’t exist.
The best way to set yourself apart from others? Be yourself.
Don’t worry about how your competitors do things. The most successful companies innovate and do things differently, and it is that very mentality that allows them to become successful in the first place. Embrace your own strengths and weaknesses, because these traits will be what make or break your company.
