Retail and manufacturing are becoming one, and customers are loving it. In the US alone, 40% of potential online buyers expect that in the next five years, DTC brands will account for 40% of their shopping.
Savvy DTC brands know this and are building up. They’re collaborating and using smart marketing tactics to drive sales, grow their revenue and ultimately improve their brand image and online presence.
Here, we have tactics and concrete examples of successful marketing efforts to inspire you, namely:
Tim Ferris was only able to become successful and famous for his 4-hour work week because he delegates his daily tasks to subordinates who handle everything for him. He doesn’t do the nitty-gritty of everyday operations himself and you don’t have to, either.
In fact, the sooner you delegate those time-consuming tasks, the better manager you will be because you’ll free up brain capacity for more long-term strategic thinking and creativity for building your brand.
What you gain when delegating:
Bringing your own brand of products to market is not for the lazy. Among all the millions tasks, brand founders should not lose sight of the publicity needed to gain initial traction and take off. Because launching a website is the basis, but telling people about it is what moves the needle from 0 to 1.
While setting up your manufacturing, inventory management and shipping, your brand should already be working, creating anticipation.
Why Social Media Images Matter for DTC Brands?
It’s no secret that 90% of the information that comes to our brains is visual.
That’s why the best way to make your brand’s social media posts engaging is through visual content.
Buffer, for example, analyzed their Twitter social media data and the results hold to the effectiveness of images in social media.
When Metrilo was founded, ecommerce was riding the first big wave of popularity and we wanted to be part of that huge movement, helping entrepreneurs build their successful businesses.
As ecommerce evolved, patterns began to form. We accumulated knowledge and experience alongside our customers. And the key to success in ecommerce became very clear.
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.
