What do you do if a copycat is stealing your content? First of all, you should be thankful. You’ve officially hit the big time.
What do I mean by this? If you are an online entrepreneur who is just getting started with no followers or revenue, then chances are nobody even knows who you are!
But once you start to develop a following online, if you provide helpful and valuable information, then you are more likely to become a target of copycats. Copycats don’t seek out people who publish garbage – they are looking for information that is likely to generate traffic and therefore, revenue!
