There are a limited amount of products in our industry
So, you are in a niche where the big guys have moved in ..change the niche / industry you are in..if the added value you say you bring to the sales of products which the bigger guys can get, does not allow you to beat them ?
You need to find / make a new thing to sell in another niche / industry ..it really is that easy, because if you don't keep at least one step ahead of them , they'll suffocate you and kill you..
When any niche / industry gets saturated and you find that you can't fight the big dogs, it is time to move on..actually the time to jump ship is before it reaches that point, keeping all your eggs in one or two limited baskets is always going to make you vulnerable ..being agile enough to jump before you get squashed or stomped on is the way to be..and having plans b,c,d,e,f, etc thought out and ready to go at short notice..
Nothing is forever..
