Unmasking Competition: The Ultimate Guide to Dominating the Market!

Competitive research is an essential part of product management and market analysis. By conducting thorough research, you can gain valuable insights into your competition, identify opportunities for growth, and develop effective strategies for dominating the market. In this blog post, we will explore the various ways you can unmask your competition and uncover the information you need to gain a competitive edge.

The Power of Data Analysis

When conducting competitive research, data analysis is your best friend. Data allows you to dig deeper and gain a comprehensive understanding of your competition’s strengths, weaknesses, and market share. However, accessing data can be challenging if your competition is not a publicly listed company. In such cases, you can explore alternative sources of information, such as the Draft Red Herring Prospectus (DRHP) or published reports.

The DRHP is a document that every company needs to file when they go public. It provides valuable insights into the company’s business model, financial statements, risks, and more. By thoroughly analyzing the DRHP of your competition, you can uncover hidden opportunities and potential threats.

App Store Ratings and User Reviews

If your competition has a live app, you can gain valuable insights by exploring the app store ratings and user reviews. Apps like Google Play Store and App Store provide a platform for customers to share their experiences and provide feedback. By paying attention to one-star and five-star reviews, you can identify what your competition is doing right and where they may be falling short.

Take the example of Zerodha, one of the leading stockbrokers in India. Despite its popularity, Zerodha’s app rating was not as high as expected. By delving into the user reviews, it became evident that customers were facing issues with cash settlement and technical glitches. This information allowed other competitors like HDFC Securities to identify areas for improvement and enhance their own user experience.

Social Media Presence

Social media platforms like Twitter can also provide valuable insights into your competition. By visiting your competition’s social media profiles and evaluating customer responses and replies, you can gain a deeper understanding of customer satisfaction, complaints, and concerns. For example, by analyzing Ola Care’s Twitter replies, you can identify the common issues customers face and evaluate how your product can provide a better solution.

Other Sources of Information

Aside from the strategies mentioned above, you can further supplement your competitive research by examining your competitor’s advertisements, brochures, annual reports, and sales team. These sources of information can provide additional insights into your competition’s marketing strategies, business performance, and competitive advantage.

By integrating relevant keywords into your competitive research and product management strategies, you can ensure your blog post is SEO-optimized and reaches a wider audience. Use transitions, vary beginnings, simplify words for flow, coherence, and reader engagement. Keep paragraphs short and utilize subheadings to break up the text and make it easier to scan.

In conclusion, competitive research is crucial for total market domination. By unmasking your competition and asking the right questions, you can gain valuable market insights, develop effective strategies, and position your product for success. So, don’t shy away from analyzing data, app ratings, user reviews, and social media presence. Embrace the power of competitive research and pave your way to market domination!

Flipped Classroom


Our learners learn by discussing and debating on real-world problems and are actively involved in the solution design process.

Conventional classroom

Sage on Stage

  • A teacher shares the knowledge via live presentations
  • Teachers are at the center of the learning and considered sage on stage
  • Knowledge transfer is one-way and the focus is on knowledge retention
  • Learners don’t get to discuss their ideas or opinions in the class
  • Hence, most learners are unable to apply these concepts in their everyday work life
  • Great for scenarios, where knowledge acquisition and retention is the only focus

Flipped classroom

Guide on side

  • Learners are the center of the universe
  • Classes are meant for healthy discussions and debates on topics
  • Learners go through the material on their own provided by the mentors
