In any tech market these days, there’s really first place, second place, maybe third and then the rest.
Who wants to be rest?
When you think about markets such as fast food, consumer, tech or business, what are the first names that come to your mind? McDonald, Uber, Apple, Microsoft?
The seconds, thirds and the rest simply don’t exist.
If you are the rest, it is so darn difficult to get attention, attract prospects and get them interested in what you do.
Ideally, you want to create your own kingdom and own it. Don’t you?
The point is there are only one or two names that will leap to mind in any category.
They own the category.
They are the category.
And that’s where you want to be with your business. But how can you get to be first?
The answer to being first is not to simply “become visible”. You want to be visible in a way that is trusted, sought after, highly paid, in demand and authoritative.
Your aim is to be visible with authority. So visibility isn’t enough.
But you have another, even bigger problem. The bitter truth is that most markets are really crowded. The leader in any category has often been established for years, if not decades and will be difficult to replace.
