Turning Competitors Into Collaborators
As part of your due diligence on opening an internet monitoring software business, it's a wise move to have a conversation with someone who is in the business. Local competitors are not going to give you the time of day, mind you. What's in it for them?
However, a fellow entrepreneur who has started an internet monitoring software business in a different city can be a great learning resource for you, as long as they don't view you as a competitive threat. In that case, the business owner may be more than happy to discuss the industry with you. Our estimate is that you may have to contact many business owners to find one who is willing to share his wisdom with you.
How do you go about finding somebody who runs an internet monitoring software business outside of your area who is willing to talk?

Why You Should Buy (Instead of Start) an Internet Monitoring Software Business
It's no secret that entrepreneurs have a strong impulse to build companies from the ground up.
Yet a healthier and safer strategy may be to purchase an existing internet monitoring software business.
Existing internet monitoring software businesses are proven operations with dependable revenue streams. When you buy, you also gain the ability to sidestep all of the trial-and-error that comes standard with any internet monitoring software business startup.
Don't Rule Out Franchising
