Sources of economic uncertainty such as a global pandemic, supply chain issues, or the breakneck pace of technological change can wreak havoc on the retail industry and create disruption for businesses. The best way for global brands to maintain business continuity during times of disruption is to build their own direct-to-consumer (D2C) channel.

To help you on this endeavor, we’ve compiled a checklist of the elements you must have in place to launch or expand your D2C channel.
