Direct to Consumer (D2C)


What does Direct to Consumer (D2C) mean?

Direct-to-consumer (D2C) is a business model in which companies sell their products directly to consumers without involving any intermediaries. This approach allows brands to establish a direct connection with their target market, bypassing traditional retail channels.

D2C v B2C

Where D2C brands will sell products directly to consumers, B2C brands will also market to consumers through intermediaries such as eCommerce and physical retail outlets.

Retailers and brands may choose to use both D2C and B2C models. For example, Beauty brand Estee Lauder will sell Business to Consumer (B2C) through retailers like Boots, but will sell Direct to Consumers (D2C) through their own eCommerce site.

Benefits of D2C

The D2C model presents compelling benefits for both brands and consumers:

  1. Increased Profitability: eliminating intermediaries can potentially lead to higher profit margins.
  2. Enhanced Brand Control: brands maintain complete control over brand image, messaging, and customer experience.
  3. Direct Customer Relationships: brands directly gather customer data and build deeper relationships and loyalty.
  4. Improved Flexibility & Agility: brands can rapidly respond to market trends and adapt product offerings based on customer insights.
  5. Greater Data & Insights: direct access to customer data enables insightful analysis and personalised marketing strategies.
