You Have Products to Sell and Customers that Want to Buy Them
But do you know the best ways to get your products to your customers - in a timely and cost-effective way?
A distribution model is simply a way of getting the products you sell into the hands of customers that purchase them. There are many distribution strategies out there. But whether you sell luxury handbags, apparel, or even hardware, you need to determine what distribution models will work best for your business.
There are many distribution models out there. And you shouldn’t stick to just one. You likely will need to employ a mix of these strategies to maximize both profits and consumer satisfaction.
