1. Find the Right Partner to Build Your DTC Site

Navigating the DTC world is a daunting task for any company that lacks the in-house expertise or resources to successfully build and launch a site. There are several technical components of a DTC channel, from the ecommerce platform and marketing automation to payments and content management. It takes an extended team to seamlessly integrate the systems and build streamlined data flows. Post-launch, the systems require ongoing maintenance and monitoring for upgrades and security patches in order to operate optimally.

Finding a partner to help your brand through the process is crucial to meeting your goals and staying on budget. The right partner will help you future-proof your DTC channel by finding the right systems that align with your brand’s needs while continuously maintaining the technology stack.

If your company is ready to start a DTC strategy and needs a digital partner, reach out to our team here. We’ve helped brands such as Wilton, Le Creuset, and SouthernCarlson build and optimize their DTC channels.
