Well, if a competitor opens up a pizza shop 6 months after Dominoes, then maybe they should copy the “30 min or less” guarantee. Being first and/or unique is the best but a close 2nd might be to ride on the coattails of the business that did it first.

Or the competition could add a twist to the original idea, “30 minutes or less or tomorrow’s dinner is on us”.

Having said that, I do think we should always be thinking about how we can solve the problems that our customers have and sometimes that means looking beyond what everyone else is doing and targeting issues that are being ignored.


Also wanted to add that I love the way you incorporate the podcast, blog post and make the transcript available with an overview of what is discussed at what times. This is something I will adopt (and maybe adapt) for my own site.
