Let’s start this with a quick question:
What’s the basic idea comes up in your mind, when you hear “modern ecommerce business” and or Mobile / Digital audience?
Let’s say, “the conventional method of selling products or goods which starts from the manufacturer and reaches to the end customer, crossing several phases is what we generally consider as “traditional” or “orthodox” business process.”
Now the next question is; with the introduction of trending business models like D2C (Direct-to-consumer), what sort of exciting changes are retail products manufacturers ready to witness?
The abbreviation of the term D2C, direct-to-consumer explains a lot about the definition of this business model. When the manufacture meddles between multiple intermediate stages before reaching out to its end customer in a standard business process; D2C business model allows the manufacturer to directly reach out its customer, either by levering your existing middle man or building completely a new solution which will give you power not only to sell directly to consumers but a medium to understand your consumers fully.
Well, isn’t it brilliant?
But like every innovation that comes with respective pros and cons, D2C also has its own set of challenges and benefits. Though the benefits are encouraging various ecommerce brands to upgrade themselves with D2C, along with their existing standard business model, certain challenges of D2C are creating some confusion among businesses.
When most of the manufacturers are well-aware of standard eCommerce business models like B2B, B2C and B2B2C (marketplace), etc. being adopted widely and globally, from ages; the current era is buzzing about D2C business upgradation. Of course, it’s nothing an alien term being heard for the very first time (Apple is an established D2C brand), but several businesses are going gaga with loads of queries, like;
Manufacturers coming up with all such queries is quite an obvious reaction. Because when the manufacturer used to rely entirely on its intermediate phases like wholesale, distributor, retailer to reach out to its consumer without worrying about the logistics and rest hustles, with D2C added on the manufacturer will bear an additional responsibility of getting the products delivered to its consumers, directly.
These are certainly some sensible changes which we are seeing in the era of several business models. And, this needs to be taken into account for further improvements. Right?
Now let’s hop on to discuss end-to-end emerging benefits of D2C for both the manufacturer and consumer. It would help us answer all the above-mentioned questions or queries people are coming up with.What does a manufacturer get via D2C business model;
