What Companies (Not Competition) Sell To Your Same Clients? (Hint: Share Clients)

Competition can be good or bad for your business, depending on the industry you are in. However, when a market becomes saturated with competitors, you could see a decline in demand. Here are a few ways to increase your business and keep those customers coming back for more.

So what do I mean by this? I'm talking about companies that are not direct competitors of yours. It's always a good idea to see who your customers are buying from because the ones who are buying from them are likely to be your next target customer. For example, if you sell dog food, then you should be interested in seeing what brands your dog owners buy from. So you can start there and find out more information about what they eat.

A company is usually considered to be a competitor if it's selling a product that is similar to yours. For example, if you sell dog food, and a company sells dog food, then they would be considered competitors. So if you sell dog food, and you see another company selling a dog food product that looks very similar to yours, then it makes sense that you might consider them as a competitor. But if you see that they're selling something that looks very different to yours, then they're not a competitor, even though they may be a customer.

If you are selling a product that is like another company's, then it could be beneficial for you to check out what other companies are doing. This way, you can figure out what works for their customers, and you can find out how they market themselves and use social media.

You can learn a lot by looking at what other companies are doing in your space. You can get ideas on how to improve your own company and what products your customers want. You can also gain information on how your competitors are targeting their customers.

So How Do You Find These Companies?

There are several online tools that can be used to find out what companies sell your customers. One is Hoovers which is basically a business directory. It lists companies and the products they offer. It also shows the type of people who work for the company. Another online tool is Dun & Bradstreet. They provide a database of financial data and the people involved in running a company.

These tools aren't free, but they are good for finding out who else is selling similar products to your customers.

You can also just ask them. Just send them an email and ask them who they buy from. They'll usually tell you who they sell to. You can do this yourself or ask a friend to find out what other companies they buy from.

Sometimes you can learn a lot about a company by looking at their websites. So take a look at the website of one of the companies that sell dog food to your customers. 

Three Most Common Ways To Sell To Clients

When you're first starting out, many people will tell you that the best way to get clients is by working with companies that your target audience works with already. It is true for a lot of things. Still, one of the most important things that you have to be aware of is the fact that if you're trying to work with companies that your target audience works with already, they're going to know what you're doing, and they're going to be really hesitant to give you work.

So, the key is to find other companies that your target audience doesn't work with. The reason that they don't work with your target audience is that the companies that your target audience works with either sell to a smaller market or are much larger than you are. So, in order to have any success with companies that your target audience doesn't work with, you're going to need to offer something different. You're going to need to offer a solution that is better than what they're currently offering.

Here are a few ideas:

  • Offer a service that they're currently not offering
  • Offers a service that they can add to their services list, and it's one that they're willing to pay for
  • Add a new feature to a product that they use

In my experience, these are the three most common ways that I find people trying to sell to clients who are not competitors. So, don't try to sell to your competitors. Find a company that's similar to your target audience, and offer them a solution that is better than what they currently offer.

If you do find yourself working with clients that are not competitors, make sure that you stay in touch with them, and don't forget about them. They're probably going to be a great person to refer your services to, so make sure you keep them around. And, once in a while, send them a quick email to say, "Hey, thanks for working with me." That's going to keep them happy, and it's going to make sure that you don't end up losing them.

So, the next time that you go into a meeting with a company, ask them what they sell to their clients, and you'll find out that the company they're working with isn't selling to you.

What Companies Do You Get Referrals From?

The answer is very simple: Companies that sell to the same people who buy from you.

There are several reasons why this is so important:

1. It shows you how valuable your customers are.

People buy from you because they trust you. So it stands to reason that if they trust you, they will recommend you.

And if they recommend you, you will make more sales.

2. It shows you how much you need to invest in your business.

When you build a relationship with a company, that relationship lasts forever. If you don't have a relationship with them, you can always get a referral, but it will be a lot more difficult.

3. It can lead to a better understanding of your customers.

If you get referrals from companies that you are already selling to, you can learn more about your customers and what they really want.

4. It gives you an advantage.

If a customer has a good experience with a company, they are more likely to buy from them. If you get referrals from those companies, you will get more sales.

5. It gives you more options.

You might be able to sell to someone else in the future because of this.

6. It shows you who is listening to your message.

You don't even have to ask for referrals. Simply getting a good reputation in the marketplace can help you get referrals, and it tells you who is listening to your message.

7. It increases your credibility.

Customers will notice that companies that sell to you are more credible than companies that do not. They will naturally choose your company over others.

How To Identify Your Top Five Clients

  1. Start with the basics. When you begin this process, you need to start with the basics. What are your clients doing now? Are they happy with the services that you are providing? Do they have any complaints about your work?
  2. What needs to be changed? If you look at your client's current situation, there may be some aspects that need to be changed. Perhaps their current website needs to be updated to make it more appealing to the market. Maybe they need to increase the number of email subscriptions that they are sending out to their subscribers. Maybe the email that they are currently using is not performing well.
  3. What is the end goal? Once you've identified what needs to be changed, the next step is to figure out what the end goal is. Is it to sell more products? Are they trying to get more people to sign up for their newsletter? Whatever the end goal is, you must be able to provide a solution.
  4. The solution. What is the solution? You've figured out what needs to be done and what the end goal is. Now it's time to create the solution that will help your client achieve their goals. How is this going to help them? How is this going to make their money? How is this going to help them get more customers?
  5. How to prove it. Once you've developed a plan, it's time to create a case study. A case study is a document that will show proof of how the client benefited from your product or service. Include the date that you implemented the solution, the benefits that were achieved, the timeline of when those benefits were achieved, etc.
  6. Create a report. Once you've created the report, it's time to send it to your client. Make sure that you don't just send it by email. Have a hard copy printed and hand it over to them. Include a thank you note that expresses your appreciation for the opportunity to work together and the help that you were able to provide them.
  7. Follow up. Once the case study is completed and handed over to your client, it's time to follow up. Let them know that you've sent the report and that they will receive it in the near future. Once you hear back from them, you will be able to gauge the success of your project.
