Already Working With A Competitor

Why Standing Out is Crucial in Business and How to Handle Competition

As entrepreneurs, we always look for ways to set ourselves apart from the crowd. We want to offer a unique product or service that people will be drawn to. However, in a highly competitive market, it can be challenging to differentiate ourselves from our competitors.

In a recent seminar, a speaker emphasized the importance of standing out in business. He said, “You just need to be you and bring your unique signature into your product and service.” This idea might sound simple, but it is crucial. In this blog, we will discuss why standing out is crucial in business, how to handle competition, and what to do if we fail to stand out.


Why Standing Out is Crucial in Business:

Every day, consumers are bombarded with advertisements and promotions from different businesses. If we want to grab their attention, we need to do something different. We need to stand out from the crowd.

When we offer something unique, people will notice us. They will be interested in what we have to offer. They will want to learn more about our products or services. In contrast, if we offer something that everyone else is offering, people won’t see any reason to choose us over our competitors.

Moreover, standing out in business helps us build our brand. When we offer something unique, we create a unique identity for our business. People will remember us for what we do differently. It will help us build a loyal customer base and generate more business.


How to Handle Competition:

While it’s important to stand out, we can’t ignore our competitors. We need to know how to handle competition effectively. One of the most common objections we may face is when a prospect is already working with a competitor.

In such situations, we need to leverage the power of social proof. We need to create social proof to show prospects that people are happy working with us. We can gather testimonials from our satisfied customers and share them with prospects. We can even get some of our customers to talk with our prospects to share their experiences working with us.

When a prospect tells us that they are happy working with our competitor, we can congratulate them and ask them what the three things are that they like about the competitor. This question will help the prospect start to think about the things that our competitor might not be doing well. We can then ask them what two or three things they would like the competitor to improve. This approach will help the prospect see that there are areas where we can offer something better.


What If We Fail to Stand Out?

In a highly competitive market, it’s possible that we may fail to stand out. We may offer something unique, but it may not resonate with our target audience. In such situations, we need to re-evaluate our approach. We need to find out why our product or service is not resonating with our target audience.

We can conduct surveys, focus groups, or one-on-one interviews with our target audience to find out what they want. We need to be open to feedback and willing to make changes. It’s important to remember that failure is not the end. It’s an opportunity to learn and grow.



In conclusion, standing out in business is crucial for success. We need to bring our unique signature into our product and service to differentiate ourselves from our competitors. Social proof is a powerful tool to handle competition effectively. We can create social proof by gathering testimonials from our satisfied customers and sharing them with prospects. If we fail to stand out, we need to re-evaluate our approach and find out what our target audience wants. We should be open to feedback and willing to make changes. Remember, failure is not the end; it’s an opportunity to learn
