How to Use ScreenshotAPI for Competitor Tracking

If you want to win at business, you need to stand out from the crowd. Your offer needs to be flashier, better, and meet your customers’ needs faster than your competition’s offers.

So, how do you know what to cook up next? You analyze what your competitors are doing to attract customers and how they sell their products.

The best way to do this is through competitor analysis. Fortunately, you don’t have to do it manually. ScreenshotAPI makes competitor tracking a breeze!

Product Pricing

In a competitive market filled with similar products, the price can often decide when a customer buys a product. Simply put, you should make sure that your products are competitively priced. 

This is where automated screenshots with ScreenshotAPI can be invaluable, as they can give you insights into your competitors’ pricing strategies. If you program ScreenshotAPI to take regular screenshots, you’ll be the first to know when your competitors make any changes to their pricing.
