3 Ways To Deal With Business Competition
Three Ways To Deal With Business Competition.,Now, dont you just hate competition?,Now, if you are just starting out, you are probably,competing with companies and businesses that are,more established, that have more resources,,they have been around longer, or if you are the leader,in your sector, in your industry, in your category,,chances are you also have new companies coming,into your industry trying to take market share from you,,trying to take customers from you, right?,They offer different types of products.,In business, we cannot avoid it.,We are dealing with competition everyday.,So today I want to share with you some,of my unique perspectives when it comes to dealing,with competition, and just the way I view competition.,First of all, the competition that you think,is your competition is not your only competition.,What do I mean by that?,Think about if, lets say you run a local gym membership.,Right, you run a local gym and you sell gym memberships,,and you think you are competing,with other gyms in your area.,I could tell you that simply is not true.,If thats the way that you look at the market,,chances are youre gonna lose because you underestimate,your amount of competitions that you have.,Because keep in mind, the customers that youre selling to,,they only have so much disposable income that they can spend,so its not just between choosing your gym versus other gym.,Its also choosing spend money with you, spend money,in fitness, investing in their own health, right,,versus spending money maybe at krispy donut,,right, or Netflix.,You have to look at it that way,because theyve only got so much money.,If you want them to spend money with your business,,you cannot just think about Im just competing,with other gyms.,Thats a bare minimum, right?,Thats who youre competing with.,So way number one, how do you compete?,Number one, keep your friends close,and keep your competitions closer.,Heres what I do, I study my competitions.,I probably know my competition better,than they know themselves, right?,I study them, I buy from them, right?,I talk to their people.,I want to know what theyre doing, what theyre gonna do,,and how theyre doing it.,What are some of the best practices?,So I study, Im on their email list,,I look at if they have videos, if they have social media,,I follow their stuff.,You have to know cause how are you gonna beat someone,if you dont know what theyre doing?,Its very dangerous in business to think that, well,,I dont need to know what theyre doing,,I just need to do my own thing, right?,Well, but theres some things you could learn,from your competitions, so dont be so arrogant and say,,theres nothing I can learn from them.,No, I learn a lot from my competition,,so thats a great thing about capitalism, right?,That you could learn from other people, you could learn,from your competitions if they are successful,,if theyre getting ahead, if they are getting customers.,There is something that they are doing, chances are,,that you are not doing.,It could also be they are providing a better service,,a better experience, theyre selling a better product,,theyve got a better team.,Whatever it might be, competitions challenge you,to be better.,They challenge you to not get complacent.,So its not such a bad thing.,So dont be so afraid if they put us out of business.,Dont be so afraid of that.,If they put us out of business,,theres something wrong with us, right?,We are not keeping up, right?,We are not delivering value, enough value to the marketplace,or solving the customers problems the way,that they want to be solved, so thats way number one.,Way number two, and that is we want to study,the competitions, at the same time dont focus on them.,Now, you may be thinking, Dan, I thought you just said,keep your friends close and keep your competitions closer,,doesnt that contradict with what you shared with me,in point one?,No, study them, get to know them, know them inside and out,,know their strategy, know their market,,know how theyre serving their customers,,get their products, or spend some money with them, right?,Because you get the best education that you could get.,At the same time, you focus a majority of your attention,focusing on how do I add more value to my customers?,How could I add more value than anybody else?,Thats the key, right?,Focus on your customers.,So we study the competitions, but our attention, our focus,,our energy, we spend that on how can we help our customers?,How can we fulfill their needs better?,You know, sometimes I have my entrepreneurs, my executive,,my CEO friends, they come to me and they visit me,and they see what I do and sometimes theyll get a,,like a day in behind-the-scenes,and I show them some things that I do.,Usually, the universal response is oh,,I cant do what you do, right?,Oh my goodness, like how prolific you are and how much,you get done, like how do you even do this, right?,Like you have like multiple clones that are running around,and to get this much done because the way I see it is this,that if someone can easily copy what you do,,then youre not very good at what you do.,Like I could tell people, and I share a lot,of my best practices on YouTube, and a lot of people ask me,,well arent you afraid that people know your secrets,and how you run your business?,I said, well, heres what I do, go ahead and try it.,Its like Michael Jordan.,Well, heres how I slam dunk and heres how I, you know,,play basketball, you go ahead and try to be Michael Jordan.,You cant, so you start focusing on the focusing,on the customers and also focusing on your skills.,What do you need to do, who do you need to be,to deliver more value to the marketplace than anybody else?,And thats how you grow.,Number three, think long-term, not short-term.,Instead of competing with your competitors,on just one product or a campaign,cause sometimes you see that.,You see this in business a lot.,The competition is, say, selling a certain product,at a certain price point and they do some kind,of promotion discount and they lower their prices,and then you feel like oh my God, I need to compete there,otherwise Im gonna lose, right?,Instead of being very reactive,,think a little bit long-term.,Over the years, I have competed with so many people,,so many enemies and opponents.,They are stronger, they are faster,,they have more resources, they have more capital,,but yet over the years Ive won many, many, many,,many battles, and the key to that is I think long-term.,Maybe Ill lose the battle as long as I win the war.,Thats okay, so when Im looking it from that perspective,,I know that maybe Im not the fastest,,and Im never the fastest, not the strongest,,not the fastest, but I always have more staying power,because I know for most people they lose focus.,They get distracted, thats okay.,Im not trying to beat you in two weeks.,Im not trying to beat you in one year.,I could wait 10 years to win this war.,Thats the way I see it, I could wait, I got time.,So when you think of it from that perspective,,the way you make decisions, you look at it differently.,Youre not so rushed and youre not making decisions,that are just youre reacting, right?,You are instead of thinking it, planning it,,being more strategic.,So think long-term and not short-term and ask yourself,what would you do differently?,If youre now competing long game, right,,youre thinking long-term, what would you do differently?,And you wait, and you ask yourself how could I make sure,I stick around?,How could I make sure I have enough endurance,to last longer in this game?,And you know if you can last longer,,you have that staying power, and you innovate, youll win.,Its just only a matter of time.,Let me give you a bonus number four.,Also, sometimes if your competition is serving,the same market that youre serving right now, well instead,of competing, why not profit from your competition?,Thats right, profit from your competition.,Maybe you offer a complimentary product,to the same

MIT’s first-ever virtual robot competition[MUSIC PLAYING],AMOS WINTER: If you had asked us a year ago,,could you teach 2.007 virtually?,Our answer would have been like, at least I dont know,,and maybe I dont think its possible.,SANGBAE KIM: It was pretty difficult to even think about,how would you do it.,,AMOS WINTER: What was critical for this years 2.007 class,is that we could provide all the magic in deep engineering,learning that comes from our normal hands-on experience,of 2.007, but do it in a remote environment.,GEORGIA VAN DE ZANDE: The semester-long project,is to build robots that complete a series of tasks and score,points on a game board.,And at the end of the semester, they,compete head-to-head to see which robot scores the most,points.,AMOS WINTER: So we went through three iterations,of a kit of materials we could ship to students,wherever they are, developed a game,board that the students could drive their robots on,,but a little game board that we could ship them anywhere,in the world, and still retain the core elements of what we,want to teach in the 2.007, like friction, compliance, tolerance,stackup, over constraint, in a COVID-compatible way.,JULIANNA RODRIGUEZ: For me, 2.007 was the first time,that I heard, our class is virtual, but by the way,,were sending you hundreds of pounds of material,,and youre going to really get to work.,[MUSIC PLAYING],Right now, Im taking 2.007 from an apartment in West Roxbury.,And basically, Im working from the bedroom,,from the kitchen, from outside where,the shoes are by the door, anywhere that theres space,that I can use.,I feel like this semester, I did not,miss out on the 2.007 experience because, even though I wasnt,able to use the big machines in the shop,,I have so much more experience with hand tools now.,The staff support is pretty hands-on.,INSTRUCTOR: Did you get the scissor mount?,JULIANNA RODRIGUEZ: Even though youre working from home.,SANGBAE KIM: In a virtual environment,,its pretty challenging to teach techniques associated,with the tools and materials.,To counter that, we actually videotaped a lot of actions,from the instructors on how to build many different things.,JULIANNA RODRIGUEZ: Anybody whos,thinking of doing something similar can see, what does,this look like in real life?,SANGBAE KIM: So that has become really, really helpful.,[MUSIC PLAYING],MEGAN NGO: My game board is chilling in the Baker Lounge,right now.,I know that whatever mechanism I want to come up with,,there are ways to build it using the items in the kit, which,is really cool.,The 2.007 staff has been the most,understanding and nurturing that Ive ever encountered.,SANGBAE KIM: We always had virtual meeting tools.,AMOS WINTER: Hey, Tolu.,SANGBAE KIM: But now everybodys at home,,we can schedule a meeting with students a lot,more flexible way.,Our time with the student actually is increased.,[MUSIC PLAYING],JOHN MALLOY: Im in a space where I felt my progress,throughout my whole life.,Behind me, I have pictures of my kindergarten diploma,,and now Im working on a robot for 2.007.,Without being there in-person, you make a lot more mistakes.,But eventually, you get them right,,and you learn a lot along the way.,JULIANNA RODRIGUEZ: My dad has a saying,,you are how you are wherever you are.,So you can get it done anywhere.,Just get it done.,AMOS WINTER: The theme of this years competition,is “Home Alone Together.”,Welcome, everybody, to the 2021 2.007 competition.,We wanted them to still retain the camaraderie,and the celebration, even if they couldnt come to campus.,JOHN MALLOY: On competition night,,itll be a great thing to come together and see,everyone elses robots and compete and hopefully, win.,[LAUGHS],Im not going to win, but well see.,SANGBAE KIM: We tried to keep that excitement,of the competition as much as possible while,keeping everybody safe.,[MUSIC PLAYING],AMOS WINTER: We went into this year thinking,,oh, virtual is going to be worse.,And in so many cases we found this year,,virtual is actually better.,Having the tools and materials at home tremendously,promotes the quality of their fabrication in their ability,to iterate their designs.,SANGBAE KIM: They gain the techniques so much quicker,,and so much earlier on.,So that allows them to think and plan,their design process a lot more practical, a lot more,realistic.,AMOS WINTER: And whats been so gratifying in this semester,is the robot fabrication, and the quality the fabrication,,is better than weve ever seen before.,,[MUSIC PLAYING],

FIRST Robotics Competition is the,worlds landmark robotics competition,for students in school you read about,stuff but in first as a whole you,actually go and do it the beginning of,January the challenge comes out every,year under strict rules and limited time,and resources you have to design build,program and tests a robot theres no,blueprint we get a few rules and,guidelines to follow and then its up to,those students to find something that,works theres nothing better than just,seeing your robot on the field playing,for the first time theyre all theyre,like theyre gonna work its gonna work,no no it works its the best feeling,ever,you have mentors that are actually in,the field they could tell you oh this is,why this works and this is the science,behind it and youre like oh wow that,makes so much sense they do a great job,not just about stem but about life and,you know how to go through college how,to go through you know a tough you know,physics class at face value FIRST,Robotics Competition is a robot,competition but at the end of the day,its so much more than that people ask,me like yall you build robots they says,no its were really running a business,and all the things that go along with,that we deal with a lot of marketing,social media Ive learned business sides,of things problem-solving working in,groups Im learning how to communicate,with people how to reach out to local,businesses so we kind of have robotics,as the starting point but we branch out,to different areas and expand,so the the ultimate goal every year is,always to get to the first championship,the first championship is basically like,the Olympic for robots,theres hundreds of teams from all over,the world there and you get to see some,of the best teams that exist,its very competitive but youre friends,with the people that youre going,against its like a sport but in its own,way its better than this board being,part of first has really changed my life,and you know how I think about myself I,would think about others participating,at first actually taught me that Im,capable of doing anything that I set my,mind to first I was really inspired me,to give that my old elementary school,Im trying to help their robotics,program that just started this year I,want those kids to have the opportunity,to learn about the stem as a participant,in the first program in high school you,get access to eighty million dollars for,the scholarships there are scholarships,for colleges universities as well as,technical programs it also looks really,good on actual application to be on,first first does a really great job,trying to open programs to make sure,that you can actually accomplish,anything in stem no matter where youre,from your background your language or,anything like that I really do consider,myself part of the stem community and I,couldnt be more prouder to say that,FIRST Robotics Competition is one of,four engaging first programs that shows,students unique challenges and helps,them learn new engineering skills and,real-world skills that will help them in,the future,first is the future,first is accomplishment first is passion,first is inspiring first is changing my,story,[Music]
