Do you usually keep an eye on the work of your competition and analyze how they have done things?
With regards to what people would call our competition, is more a case of admiration and inspiration. We try not to over think things. The last thing you want is to be seen to copy other peoples ideas... seriously not cool.
Sure, keeping eyes wide open and staying on your toes is always good, listening to your user base, as well as your competitors user feedback and market needs is a must. but some of the greatest ideas actually come from implementing features and aspects of seemingly non related applications and services.
I think studying what others are doing is natural. We learn from each others mistakes and victories, however I do try to focus more on my own definition of success and that keeps me on track.
Nope! We focus on what we do best and leave the rest to whom ever else wants it.
I am not competitive, except with myself
Of course, I always look at my "competition" but it's more just to see they're style and which matches they've covered. Among the main uploaders, I think we share a passion, and we all upload these videos for fans, not to be the best.
Well, we don't exactly have competitors, but I do always watch what other organizations and groups are doing. Nobody has it all figured out and we all can learn a little bit from each other.
I don't feel I have "competition" but always enjoy listening to all sorts of good radio in the UK and the US.
Looking around what is going on and what things are possible and to get inspired.
So much so that it sometimes incapacitates me. This is one of my biggest professional imperfections: Knowing the similar messages that exist and convincing myself that it lessens the impact of what I have to say/share in my my own words. Although my story is mine and in total, quite fascinating. Nonetheless, I tend to avoid certain things like most recipes and blogs so that no one can say I've stolen their words, ideas, or concepts.
I do, usually with my jaw on the ground.
Yes, but my AELO productions is absolutely unique. So I have no doubt to be very successfull one day.
My friends have made websites in the past, but they've given up. I've tried to continue with new ideas and scenes. This doesn't make it boring.
Definitely yes. There are times I feel so down when I am working so hard on doing Highlights of a specific match, then suddenly someone have already made Highlights of it earlier and was published at YouTube before I was able to. But, I am not really affected so much by these things, because I know that it is part of my work, and this is not about being the best out there, it is about at being able to entertain and satisfy other tennis fans like me worldwide.
