Two interesting aspects about competitors came up today. The first was a prospect asking me my opinion of a competitive product.
I said something like “I don’t comment on competitors for the simple reason that I know what it takes to create a software product and I have too much respect for those who do this. I know how much perspiration, inspiration and dedication it takes to get a product out there and support it, improve it and deal with the real issues that stop you from having a really successful business. I want to win your business by demonstrating we have a product that allows you to take your business where you want to go, and an approach to running a creative business that is far ahead in thinking. ”
The second was a comment made about us by a competitor to a client – we were described as being a Holden (an Australian car brand) and their product was a Ferrari. It made me laugh. What would you rather have?
- A proven, venerable, dependable and reliable car that can go almost anywhere, achieve almost anything and will be running years from now.
- An expensive car with lots of zing and bling but little practical application in most day to day situations that we find ourselves – and our businesses – in.
I’m in business to help my clients win – business isn’t a tortoise and hare race, it’s a marathon.
