One of the more daunting aspects of online business that startups deal with is that fact that no matter how original they think they are, they find a lot of competition out there in their respective niche. Even if you’re catering to a niche inside of a larger niche, you’re going to find that you’re dealing with some competitors. No one has the market cornered online, and if you did, you would find that there’s not much of a market at all.
But instead of shying away from the competition, the smart business startups seize the opportunity and actually learns from their competition. If you’re willing to put in the time and effort in order to thoroughly research those guys offering similar products and services, you can leverage your position in the market in a big way.
Here are some of the top reasons that you need to start researching your competition early and often.

As you will learn when building and promoting a website, the internet is extremely competitive. In fact, the World Wide Web is probably the most competitive industry in the history of mankind. And it’s not because big companies spend big money; to the contrary, it’s more the fact that anyone can start up a website with little capital and use common sense methods to market within their respective niche.
This means that the internet is also a cutthroat place, where some pry, lie, steal and cheat in order to get ahead. At the very least, you will have to put on your detective hat to do a lot of research on the competition if you hope to succeed in your chosen marketplace.
To research your competitors out there, WHOIS is undoubtedly the strongest resource you have at your disposal. WHOIS is a free-to-use database that catalogs every single legally registered domain in the world. By searching for a domain via this directory, you can learn a lot of details about the site. Needless to say, this information can be vital to your own campaign; learning details about your competition can help you propel past them

Twitter is undoubtedly a useful tool for promoting just about any business, but it’s application needs to be properly understood in the context of your business. Here are a few tips for using Twitter to promote your business.
1.Don’t underestimate Twitter’s usefulness
If you are in an extremely specialized niche market, don’t expect to suddenly have thousands of Twitter followers. Rather focus on entering the circles that are relevant to your business. Identify “power tweeters” in your area, and engage with them. Tweet at them, mention them, etc. Find trending topics relevant to your area and participate in these discussions.

Marketing is a rather difficult thing if you go about it in the wrong way. If done correctly, however, it can not only be easy but also bring you incredible results for your business. Marketing done incorrectly, on the other hand, like marketing too broadly, will waste time, money and quickly drive your business into the ground.
Finding a niche market for your business's product and/or service is the best way to go about searching for, communicating with and driving traffic to your business. A niche is already more likely to be interested in what you're selling, and it requires no magic, if you will, to communicate with them.
You will only have to stand above competition within that niche and not the entire market in general.

Although there are many ways to describe it as well as various terms given for it, niche marketing is one of the simpler approaches to marketing that there is in terms of understanding the concept. A niche is simply a segment of another market, its own little world within a larger marketplace, and it acts, by and large, with predictability.
Anyone thinking about getting into a web business has probably heard of niche marketing if they haven't seriously entertained starting a campaign. However, it is remiss to think that everything's positive with this marketing method.
Like everything in life, there are downsides to niche marketing. Sure, its one of the most successful ways to market online but its not successful for everyone, and it certainly has the potential for failure.
