Turning Competitors Into Collaborators
After you've evaluated your local competitors, be sure to talk to somebody who is already in the business. Local competitors are not going to give you the time of day, mind you. What's in it for them?
However, an entrepreneur who owns a satellite television antennas business in a location that is not competitive to you will be much more likely to talk with you, provided that you won't be directly competing with them. In that case, the business owner may be more than happy to discuss the industry with you. It can take a while to find an entrepreneur who is willing to talk, but it's well worth the effort.

Leveraging the Branding Benefits of a Satellite Television Antennas Business Acquisition
Startup satellite television antennas businesses typically suffer when it comes to brand recognition because unlike entrenched competitors, new brands lack visibility and history with their customers.
Unless you are 100% married to the idea of a startup, you can bypass the time it takes to establish a brand identity by buying a business to get an established brand. Even in ideal circumstances, it can take years to create an effective brand presence.
But by buying a satellite television antennas business that already has a strong brand identity, you can shorten the time requirements and reap brand benefits from the beginning of your ownership career.
