Why Competitor Analysis is Key to Financial Success

Why Competitor Analysis is Key to Financial Success

May 24, 2023

Competitor analysis exists to provide a thorough understanding of how your competitors are performing. Their strengths and weaknesses, along with their innovations and failures. And, while you may have an understanding of what a competitor analysis looks like and possibly even how to acquire one, do you understand why competitor analysis is key to financial success in your industry?

As a business owner, it’s your responsibility to keep up with the latest trends and predict the “next best thing” to keep your business profitable and relevant to your clientele. You have to determine where to invest your profits, how to create an innovative service or product, and where to fill the gap in your market.

How do you find the information needed to make these decisions? An industry/competitor analysis.

How Does a Competitor Analysis Influence Your Financial Success?

Financial success is found when you have profitable and sustainable growth in your business over time. You can achieve this through effective financial management, strategic planning, cost controls, and revenue generation. You also need to monitor and optimize financial performance metrics such as revenue, profit margins, cash flow, and ROI.

The actual competitor analysis (or industry analysis) that is conducted will do very little to improve or influence your financial success, it’s what you do with the information found. By utilizing the information in a competitor analysis, you can increase your market share, improve customer relations, and expand your customer base.

Competitor analysis is there to provide insight on the gaps of your industry and find where you’re falling short in comparison to your competitors. By taking that information into consideration and filling in those industry gaps and opportunities, you can drastically improve your cash flow. Additionally, when you’re regularly analyzing your competitors, you can discover upcoming trends and invest as needed. 

How to Introduce Regular Competitor Analysis Into Your Business

Competitor analysis is not a process that you should only do every once in a while or just when you’re starting your business. Rather, competitor analysis should become a regular practice in your marketing and financial planning. 

Consider implementing a light competitor analysis once every quarter to check in on progress and compare your business standing in the market. Additionally, invest in a thorough analysis once per year to get a thorough understanding of your industry and current competitors.

An alternative to investing in or creating a competitor analysis on your own is to work with a financial advisor and modern accounting firm that offers it to assist with your financial planning. For example, with ModVenture’s Client Advisory Services, we work to an up to date industry analysis to allow you to make the best investments for your business.
