What is "Direct-to-Consumer (D2C)?"
The Cookie Chips® Baking Mix Company has gone Direct-to-Consumer. We’re pleased to report. But perhaps you’re wondering, “What is Direct-to-Consumer, and why can’t I find Cookie Chips® at my grocery store?” Glad you asked. Let’s dive in.
Direct-to-Consumer (D2C) businesses are all the rage these days. This business model is preferred because it empowers brands to sell their products directly to customers without relying on intermediaries. D2C brands establish a direct connection with consumers through various channels such as e-commerce websites, social media platforms, and even physical stores.
By building our company using the D2C model, we have gained an immense amount of freedom in creating our ultimate customer experience. It’s because we’re the ones who get to determine our pricing, branding, and customer experience. We bypass traditional distribution channels (think supermarkets and specialty food stores), which bog down our creativity and make everything for everyone more expensive. If you’re curious to know how we do it at Cookie Chips®, or you’re interested in starting your own D2C brand, let’s break down what I’m talking about:
Increased Control & Transparency (We’re not control freaks per se, but..)
Our natural sugar cane being harvested at peak of ripeness. It's rich in flavor and free from any additives.
Shopping has never been more flexible than it is today. With the D2C model, we offer a shopping experience that's as breezy as a summer day. No more rushing through crowded stores or limited selection. You can take your sweet time to read our glowing reviews, learn about what goes into our cookie mixes, or see what we’re baking on Instagram. You have the freedom to tailor your purchases, email us for a custom order, and, if something didn’t quite work out, send it back with hassle-free returns.
And it’s good for us too! We have the freedom to try new things, experiment with products and flavors, and pivot when necessary. Did someone say crunchy ginger cookies? There’s no “waiting for approval” from the higher-ups, or worrying about how our decisions will affect third-party retailers. We get to do what you want, and we can make it happen very quickly. That’s the beauty of this business model.
A Better Customer Experience
When it comes to the customer experience, D2C brands are the rock stars of shopping. We roll out the red carpet for you and hope to make you feel like VIPs (because you are). We've streamlined our baking experience, simplified the recipe, and made it stupid simple to bake perfect cookies. Not everyone has the time or expertise to be a master baker, so we've taken the guesswork out of the equation and made these cookie recipe incredibly easy.
No confusing measurements or complex instructions. We've done all the hard work behind the scenes, so you don't have to. Our simple recipe calls for one bag of cookie mix, a stick of butter, and a large egg. Our finely crafted experience ensures consistent and delicious results every time, all you have to do is pop the dough in the oven.
We're also tailoring recommendations and ensuring only relevant communications reach you. And, when you have a question or need some assistance, we’re a direct message or email away. There will never be a long hold or frustratingly difficult customer service rep. You need to feel heard and be taken care of immediately. We want you hassle-free and baking right away!
