How To Launch Ads That Win Customers From Your Competitors [Video]

Josh Sturgeon
Last Updated April 26, 2021


There are many ways to get new leads, clients, etc but one of the best ways that we've found is by doing a little research on your competitors' unhappy customers. Understanding their frustrations can help you create effective ad copy!

Here is how we do it:





One of the fastest ways to generate more leads, users, sales is to go after the customers of your competitors who are just not happy.

And to do that, you need to understand what makes these people tick, and really at the end of the day, what they're unhappy with.

So to do that, we use a site called TrustRadius.

And basically this is a review site where you can see what people are saying about different products.

So I'm going to pretend that I'm in the marketing automation industry, and I'm gonna research
Infusionsoft as a mock competitor.

I'm going to check out their profile.

Getting Competitors Users

What I'm looking for are the people who are really upset with this solution, so I'm going to filter for the lowest star rating.

Now I'm going to go through and look at the cons, the things that people hate.

Getting Ad Copy Ideas from Competitor's Weakness

So this person is saying that it's confusing.

This person is angry that there's not really good API integrations.

I'm going to scroll through.

I can see that there's a trend here.

People aren't happy with API stuff.

I'm going to go through and just start to take notes on what people are saying.

If I want to speak to the API solution, I'm going to talk about how easy it is to integrate my solution with all the tools that you always use.

Or if people are complaining about how confusing the competitor is, we're going to talk about things like how easy it is to get started or how long it would really take for you to launch your first campaign.

Position Yourself Against The Competitor Where They're Weak!


The idea is to start positioning yourself against your competitors in such a way that speaks exactly to the things that people are expressing they hate about the competitor.

No secrets, no bull. Just making sparks fly together.

✅ Focused on revenue

Look elsewhere if you're looking for a new logo or brand identity via 200-page slide decks. Those marketing disciplines have their place, but they're not our focus. We've doubled down on growing sales and injecting our clients with cash flow.

✅ We move fast

The typical agency model moves slowly: endless meetings, thousands of email threads, lots of talk, but little action. EmberTribe is different. We know what it takes to grow fledgling brands into formidable empires: a hell of a lot of execution.

✅ Trusted by the best

We've been recognized by Facebook and Google as one of the top agencies in the world. We're a mentor to startups within Techstars, Y Combinator and regularly consult with programs at MIT and Harvard Business School. Now it's time to add you to our Tribe.
