Over the past couple of years, the direct-to-consumer (DTC) model has gained a lot of popularity. Not only has it disrupted the retail industry, but has also revolutionized the way that brands operate.
An increasing number of companies have started embracing this business model. Although these brands mostly include small-scale businesses (most of them making under $1 billion in annual sales), their potential is far-reaching.
If your brand is digitally native, the way it is presented either helps it getting more customers or puts it behind the competitors.
It doesn’t matter how small or big your company is. If it exists mainly online, you have to make sure it can be easily found and that it is positively associated with certain characteristics when potential buyers look for information.

Brands that sell their own products often find it challenging to produce and stock the right amount of inventory.
Proper inventory management and forecasting has many benefits and is essential for your bottom line.
The importance of proper inventory management
Retailers in the US are sitting on an average of $1.43 of inventory for every $1 of product sold, but 46% of small business owners still don’t track their inventory or only use a manual method.
By improving your inventory management process, you will ensure that you have a steady cash flow because you won’t be spending money on unnecessary stock. The freed up capital can be invested in growth instead.
On the other hand, having items in stock means your customers will be satisfied with timely fulfillment, resulting in more repeat purchases.
