It’s day 4 of the 30 days to make a sale case study and we’re at the point where we wrap up everything we learnt and completed during the first 3 days and finish it off with some good old fashioned competitor analysis.
Really, today is about taking the techniques that you learnt in day 2 and day 3 and putting them in to action using a slightly different approach, digging slightly deeper in to other metrics which we previously didn’t discuss.
So, in todays post we will be looking at how to analyse the competition, we want to learn how to rip them apart, piece by piece and then take all of those pieces and put them in to our own website but with an additional layer of awesomeness.
Before we start, lets recap what you should have so far:
- a handful of goals – personal, business, financial…
- a chosen market to enter.
- a variety of keywords to dominate.
These three ingredients are vital to launching an affiliate website, if you are not completely sure about the market you have chosen, the keywords you have chosen or if you have yet to make a decision, don’t worry. Honestly, the last thing you want to do is rush this part of the process. Take your time, research carefully and make sure you do the due diligence necessary to make the right choice.
So now lets look at who is keeping your seat warm in the SERPs.
Check out the video below which covers all aspects of competitor analysis (at least what I do).
