One of the big challenges of any business is competition. Other businesses that provide the same or similar services/products can capture a portion of the valuable market share that your business needs in order to be successful. Even businesses in wildly different industries can represent a source of competition, given that consumers have a limited amount of resources to spend. But competing businesses don't just represent a challenge - they also represent an opportunity! Collaboration, partnership, and cross-promotion with neighboring businesses can yield incredible results by allowing you to access new customers, expanded creative potential, and increased revenue as a result of your combined resources. Join us on May 20th to learn how working together, instead of against one another, can have a positive impact on your bottom line and beyond!
