Direct & Indirect Competitors

4 posts in this topic


We all know when first starting/planning your business you have to do research. 

That's exactly what I am doing but I needed some help and wanted some opinions. 

When it comes to my competitors; my direct competitors are obviously other virtual assistant in my area. 

But what would be my indirect competitors? 


Thank you so much for the help. I'll be looking forward to a reply:)

I would think this would be like secretaries and receptionists - or whatever the in person equal would be to what you are offering would be. So for instance I do office management for mental health professionals, so for me it would be receptionists, medical billing people, medical records, etc. Am I totally of track with this thinking?!?

Omg! Of course. I can't believe I didn't even think about that. 

I believe you are completely on the right track. It makes complete sense. 

Now I feel like that was a silly question to ask. LMAO. 

But thank you so much for answers. 

So how long have you been doing office management for mental health professionals?
