That is unless you are using a competitive intelligence tool called Rival IQ.

I have yet to introduce Rival IQ to any customer that has not experienced a jaw-dropping moment in the first fifteen minutes of the meeting. It can be a bit unnerving to open up your Rival IQ dashboard for the first time and have the facts about your marketing efforts as compared to your best competitors.  My challenge with this post is that I cannot due it justice within the confines of this blog. It has so much information, and provides so much insight into your competitors strengths and weaknesses that I will simply try to whet your appetite.
