Copying is the best compliment
I regularly get new subscribers on my blog newsletter whose email address identifies them as a website company or an SEO company.
And I think to myself . . . are they just here to copy what I am doing?
“Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.”
This quote is usually attributed to author Charles Caleb Colton.
Well, if they are going to copy, I guess that is just tough luck for them!
They might be able to copy the words that I write in my blog, but they cannot duplicate the level of service that we provide for our customers.
So, I just sit back and think to myself . .
Copying is the best form of flattery
We are doing something right that they want or need to copy!
But something to remember about other organisations attempting to copy what we do at Hotpink Websites is this:
People who just Copy lack the creativity and skill to come up with their own work.
They also lack the expertise to deliver the best advice, service, support, etc.
So, I say – good luck to them.
This will ultimately show up in the work that they do.
