How do you develop a plan for success when the landscape is constantly changing? In our opinion, at Moving Forward Small Business, we believe the #1 thing you should do moving into 2022 is conduct a competitive analysis. Read more to understand why.
A lot has changed over the past 18 months for almost every business on the planet, large and small. We’ve seen businesses disappear overnight while others exploded with growth. And to top it all off, there are a lot more businesses vying for the attention of your precious customers. Yes, your competitors. But even more than the competition, the channels for reaching your target market are multiplying almost daily. In the year 2020 (during the height of the pandemic), 4.3 Million new business applications were filed; that’s a lot of new competitors. It’s more important now than ever for small businesses to pay attention and stand out from the competition.
In this How-to mini-series, Jimmy Newson – The Impact Influencer, will do a deep dive into competitive analysis and the steps to take to complete one. At the end of this series, you will know where you stand, where you are winning and where you are losing when it comes to your competition.
This information can be used to define your USP & UVP, engage your internal team and external community, launch a new product or service or even raise additional capital to dominate your local marketing, enter a new market or take your company global.
It’s Important to note, these ares not a talking head webinars. This workshop mini-series will dive deep into the steps and tools necessary to help you successfully complete your competitive analysis for your business. As long as you do the work, you will walk away with a blueprint for taking your business to the next level and getting the upper hand on your competitors.
All the attendees of the mini-series will get useful templates, resources, and tool recommendations for the job.

What others are saying about the presenter
I have the utmost pleasure working with Jimmy for over two years here at DMWF (Digital Marketing World Forum) – in-person and virtually. A delightful and charismatic speaker with an abundance of marketing knowledge. His sessions are not only delivered in an easily digestible fashion, so the audience is not overwhelmed, his personality is an infection on the stage! Jimmy is always on hand to lend his support and expertise to enhance our delegates’ experience at our conferences. We love working with Jimmy and having him speak at DMWF events for years to come.
Jimmy is an absolute expert when it comes to developing and implementing digital marketing strategies for producing increased profitability within your business. He is a powerful speaker who is not only motivational but effectively communicates complex information in an easy to understand way. I have seen Jimmy address large and small audiences both virtually and in-person – he always delivers dynamic, high-energy performances with extremely valuable content that can be put to use immediately within your organization. I have learned a lot from him that has benefitted my business significantly and I highly recommend checking Jimmy out if you have the opportunity. You’ll be glad that you did!
Jimmy is highly engaging, energetic and extremely knowledgeable across a variety of marketing disciplines. He delivers valuable and actionable content, which is exactly what our organization needs to better help our community of under-resourced entrepreneurs. We are immensely appreciative for Jimmy’s support of our organization and the time and expertise he’s contributed to help our small businesses.
Obviously the two major traits found in great speakers are: 1) are they knowledgeable in their chosen subject and 2) are they engaging when they speak. Let’s start with number one. For my digital marketing event, madconNYC, we needed not only great speakers, but experts in a given digital marketing discipline to provide advice and answer the burning questions of our participants. Jimmy is so knowledgeable that not only can he speak intelligently on NUEMROUS marketing topics, but he really is a true “expert” in different disciplines. His advice is proving to be invaluable to our event customers. Now let’s look at number two. Jimmy’s delivery, demeanor, and dynamic personality ensure he can a) make the connection with our audience and b) hold their attention. I know many people who have number one OR number two, but not many that embody both. Jimmy does. And I say this from personal experience having worked directly with him. He’s so good we asked him to be both an Expert AND a thought-leadership speaker! In short, Jimmy is both the bee’s knees AND the cat’s pajamas!
