We know consumer product brands rely heavily on influencers to reach their target audience. It makes perfect sense with highly niche products to target specific communities and interests.
Because we want you, entrepreneurs, to succeed, we help you grow your brands in a sustainable and profitable way. We build Metrilo as the tool that gives you all data and answers to make strategic decisions.
As influencer marketing is one of the most used marketing activities, we included reporting on it in Metrilo so you can now easily monitor its effectiveness on traffic and sales.
If you’re building your own consumer product brand, you will need sufficient funds. Research and development, manufacturing, and branding are not for free. As opposed to other ecommerce models, you usually have to pay for inventory before you sell it and that means cash flow is even tighter. And let’s not forget marketing is also paid.
All this leads most product entrepreneurs – or founders of DTC brands – to seeking outside funding to be able to scale. While banks may provide operating capital (for meeting ongoing daily expenses in the business), bigger injections allow brands to create an innovative product and grow customer base.
In this article, we list investor funds focused on direct-to-consumer brands with their basic requirements to help you find one that suits your business.
Customer loyalty can have an overwhelming impact on your business. With so many brands of varying sizes focussing almost wholeheartedly on acquisition, they’re missing a lot of low-hanging fruit.
When you shift your focus to creating a post-purchase experience, you’ll find more customers coming back and buying from you a second time.
The holiday season has started and you’re probably already on fire. It’s crazy but very rewarding, I know. And not to waste any of your precious time, I have a bare-bones action plan ready for you to just plug in and cash on this holiday season.
Pinterest is often overlooked as just a place for lifestyle bloggers and wedding planners. But it can be a vital channel for brands looking to increase their brand awareness and connect to their ideal audience.
One of the biggest attractions of the platform is that pinners are looking to discover and open to new ideas and products. It’s the perfect place to visually tell your brand’s unique story and connect people to what they find inspiring.
For a brand owner and probably product creator, feedback might be hard to take sometimes. You believe in your creation and want people to like it, for sure.
But today’s market is really fragmented and an ok product that doesn’t click with any specific customer is not likely to become a lovemark.
Now, it’s better to be admired by a few than to be tolerated by the many because niche brands are the future of ecommerce and profit comes from devoted fans.
So, to win customer love, you should be improving your product to better fit their needs. And feedback is the best starting point.
