direct-to-consumer

Online shopping has slowly become the preferred way to go among consumers. Not only are the payment methods super easy, but the whole process is effortless. As much as clothing and beauty products have slowly dominated the industry, furniture companies are slowly following the growing trend and becoming direct-to-consumer.

As seen by the revolution of the mattress-in-a-box by both Endy and Casper, two direct-to-consumer companies, consumers and young companies are respectively more and more curious towards this new way of shopping and offering products. But why?

Advantages 

Direct-to-consumer (DTC) is a very friendly option for companies. Indeed, DTC allows 100% personalized branding in every aspect of the product and cancels a competition for shelf-space in stores.  Not only that, but companies can obtain a wide range of direct feedback and insights on buying trends and preferences.

DTC also benefits the consumers, as it provides an easy and better customer experience, directly on their tablet, computer, or smartphone. With a rise in technology, it is no wonder why people are starting to turn more towards online shopping. In addition, DTC makes communication much easier between the company and the consumer. By talking directly to people responsible for the product and not to a retail store, you can get much more precise and clear information. 

A Rise in Popularity

With the ever-evolving technology, customer expectations are continuing to increase and people are asking more and more for seamless shopping experiences. In addition to this, customer experience is a very important player in DTC, as it has the availability to make the company do more than just sell a product. 

Nowadays, people seek relationships with everyone, and everything. This is where DTC comes in handy; it offers a unique, personalized experience and provides the customer with a sense of belongingness towards the brand.
