Distribution Strategies

Today, companies must decide whether to sell their products directly to their customers via the Internet or to use more traditional methods of distribution.

Respond to the following:

  • Do you think the high-end designer apparel brands, such as Gucci, Chanel, or Prada, sell their goods direct to consumers through the Internet? Give reasons for your answer.
  • What, if any, practices of corporate social responsibility (CSR) do they exhibit? Is there a factor of showing it in any online marketing strategy?

Write your initial response in 300–500 words. Your response should be thorough and address all components of the discussion question in detail, include citations of all sources, where needed, according to the APA Style, and demonstrate accurate spelling, grammar, and punctuation
