Online Distribution Channels

A distribution channel refers to the network utilized to deliver your product or service to consumers. Poor distribution can be a significant factor contributing to the failure of startups and small businesses. In some cases, the distribution channel can outweigh the importance of the product itself. We've all witnessed instances where inferior products thrive while superior ones struggle to gain traction.

Maintaining a robust online presence is crucial in today's digital landscape.

Here's how to proceed:

  1. Explore Various Online Channels:
