Selling direct-to-consumer, commonly referred to as DTC, means companies are selling their products directly to their end customers, therefore, bypassing third-party retailers, wholesalers, or any other type of middlemen to deliver their products.

Known examples of DTC brands include Casper, Warby Parker, and Dollar Shave Club and many others.

A unique approach to growing a DTC brands is to develop a niche audience through mobile and digital channels with content marketing that grabs the attention of that audience.  After that, a company starts offering products related to their niche to their audience.  Samples of this approach include Food52 and Bon Appétit.

Some of the other major advantages of going direct-to-consumers:

  • Owning your consumer data
  • Cost Savings by eliminating the middle man or supply chain expenses.
  • Control of your own brand by not relying on other companies to present your products.
