What Is Competitive Analysis & Should I Do It?

What Is Competitive Analysis & Should I Do It? Competitive analysis is the identification of competitors and the evaluation of their strengths and weaknesses. This identification and assessment enable a business entrepreneur to position his/her business in the market strategically.

It also provides one with a distinct advantage and allows one to come up with barriers that prevent competition that would hamper market entrance. Moreover, competitive analysis is a move to exploit any weaknesses that are found within a product development cycle.

How to Run A Successful Email Marketing Campaign

How to Run a Successful Email Marketing Campaign

Studies show most people who visit a website leave without signing up to their newsletter. Using exit-intent pop-ups is the right way of converting visitors into customers and subscribers. They help detect user behavior and then prompt them with a targeted campaign when they are about to leave the site.
