Big brands go direct to the consumer in a crisis
  • Spurred by the coronavirus pandemic, some of the worlds biggest brands are opening online stores serving products direct to customers’ homes
  • PepsiCo, Nestlé and Heinz all launched direct-to-consumer (D2C) offerings in lockdown, appealing to those who couldn’t leave their home, but were dead set on their favorite ketchup or kombucha brand.

  • What the pandemic has taught many companies is D2C e-commerce isn’t just for smarter speciality startups that don’t want legacy retail and big overheads; it’s for all brands looking to drive preference, loyalty and repeat sales through a directly owned relationship.
  • “We believe there will be a ‘lockdown loyalty effect’. Consumers will remember the brands and retailers that got them through the darkest lockdown days,” Hugh Fletcher, global head of innovation at Wunderman Thompson Commerce concludes.
