  12. 12. Competitive Observations<br />It would be extremely costly and time consuming to compete head-on with Adagio. They own the primary head keywords. <br />The digital path to success in this market is in the "long tail;" finding a narrow niche, underserved by Adagio, yet in demand in customer search. <br />A digital audit, keyword discovery process and SEO tools are the means to formulating the optimal market strategy and plan for this, online and beyond. <br />
