What are some of the challenges usually associated with developing a DTC brand, and how can you overcome them?
Cost-effective and inexpensive customer acquisition costs are common challenges, which is why it's necessary to get the product, price, and messages correctly to ensure that clickthrough rates and conversions are optimal. Trusting the test of offline channels is also necessary to ensure that you invest in top and bottom conversion activity.
