How analytics platforms are affected by the move of DTC into wholesale
As more DTC brands move into wholesale, a new challenge emerges: measuring the engagement that leads customers to different retailers or platforms. A new analytics platform, MikMak, is here to solve that problem. Its software can be used by brands on any sort of media — from Instagram to TikTok — for customers to swipe up on a product and then choose which retailer they want to shop it at. This data is then collected to help retailers draw conclusions based off of customer preferences. {Vogue Business}
