Im developing a business model that brings a new feature to its market. the idea itself is new and nobody is doing it today. in order to enable this, Im using an existing platform (free at this time) that enables me to provide this new feature. My question is - My concern is that once im out with the idea, people in the industry see its cool and can bring them more income, and will offer the same for their service, and since im using a free platform, they might use it as well.
this plaform is for free as the company who developed it want to grow and get as much users to use it, so considering this fact, what can i do & how can i overcome this problem of quick competetion ? Do i have anything to offer in order to get exclusivity in my area / region, so it will be seariously considered by the plaform company ?
