Competition can be a real hurdle to overcome in any business or industry. This certainly is the case in Amazon, where competitors can be as unpredictable as the market itself. The struggle is real: how can you earn a real living income on Amazon with so many businesses trying to sell the same products to the same customers? How can you set yourself apart? Many businesses lower their prices to compete but it’s not just about the money. With the right steps and strategies, you don’t need to worry about losing money to your competitors: you can stand out.
In this episode, we discuss how to manage, reduce, and eliminate competitors on Amazon. We discuss what a direct and indirect competitor is and identify the kinds of items associated with a huge amount of competition. We share tips and tricks on how to identify Amazon competitors and item and product differences as well as explain why it’s important that you do so. We also explain why knowing your customer base on Amazon is as important as knowing your competitors.
“Competition happens more frequently when things are easy. Easy equals less profit.” – Kristin Ostrander
