Barriers to entry are often cited as the main obstacle to a company’s success. They refer to factors that prevent newcomers from entering an industry, stifling competition and limiting innovation. These barriers (which can be legal, financial, and technological) mean that only large companies with vast resources are able to enter a certain sector.
Barriers to entry, signify anything that makes it harder for new businesses to get started in a particular industry. Barriers to entry benefit existing firms because they protect their market share and ability to generate revenues and profits. This can limit competition and make it harder for consumers to find the best products and services.
As a newcomer starting a brand, you have to be creative, scrappy, and smart in order to build and grow your brand in a saturated industry and niche. If you can break down the barriers to entry, you will effectively have a greater chance at getting a ton of market share (customers) and imprinting your brand in your audience’s minds.
