Retail Sales

The retail sales model focuses on creating physical stores to directly sell products to customers. This entails setting up and maintaining stores to sell goods and services to customers who enter the store. It offers the opportunity to meet customers face to face along with the chance to offer deals and complimentary products to a consistent customer base. However, due to the high cost of opening a physical store, the number of goods available must often be limited with higher prices than what could be offered online. This makes it a model that it not suitable for the start-up phase of a company.

Channel Sales

As the name implies, channel sales is a type of revenue model that depends on agents or resellers to push the product. This model can make use of the dealer’s channel resources which can be more economical and effective. For new companies, working with channels that are already established can provide opportunities that may not have otherwise been available. However, it can also brings revenue risks, market support risks and channel control risks.

Direct Sales

The direct sales model is one that does not rely on outsiders but instead on salespeople that are hired by the company to reach out to customers. Since a direct sales method allows companies to deal with the customers themselves, the portion of the profits that would have otherwise gone to the dealers can be redirected the company’s’ salespeople to incentivize sales. In addition, this model will gain feedback from customers’ opinions quickly which are influential to the adjustment of enterprise’s strategy. However, it is not suitable for small ticket price items.

Internet Sales

Internet sales is an important part of e-commerce with features such as quickness, strong interaction and no geographical restrictions. It will help reduce business costs, expand marketing space and help small to medium sized business get relatively fair competition opportunities. One of its only disadvantages is that it may lead to vicious competition and enterprises may be charged high fees by the platform.

Free products before charging for services

This model is quite interesting and novel! Companies use free products to attract customers and win their trust. Once there is a bond between the enterprise and customers, the customers will then be ready to pay for their services. It also has several advantages like helping to establish a good corporate image and reputation. Companies who mainly provide services rather than products should strongly consider this model as it helps to draw in customers.
