THE BRAND FOR THE WEEK IS …
Impress is a Southern European D2C Orthodontics company that was founded in 2019 at Barcelona by Dr. Khaled Kasem and entrepreneurs Diliara and Vladimir Lupenko.
Impress has raised a 50 Million Dollar Series that has been taken care of by Care Capital, Nickleby Capital, UNIQA Ventures and more. Lupenko claimed that the concept was to "combine the best orthodontic tradition with the most innovative technology in the sector."
They have used a doctor-led digital model which got them a way better conversion rate and treatment quality. The process being strenuous, they were able to scale the entire project exponentially.
They have projected to reach €50 million in their annual run-rate and are seeming to grow to €150 million of revenue in 12 months.

PERSONALISED VIEWS ON D2C HAPPENINGS
Systemax is a billion dollar company that distributes business and industrial products. It's a company that usually handles most of its orders online. They've seen a huge surge in overall sales by around 23.3% and here's why.
They've done something really interesting for their customers. They've personalized the online customer experience and for this year, they've earned $1 billion in sales. Isn't that great?
The CEO, Barry Litwin claims that along with performance, it was strategy that coincided with it. A business's main objective is to make the lives of its customers easier.
A D2C brand's focus is to provide quality, authenticity and an easy life to its customers. This is a sheer example of how a D2C brand builds rapport with customers and then develops a phenomenal network of loyal customers.
They developed an efficient online buying system which increased their sales by A LOT! Digital marketing has helped them engage with the business more effectively.
“As we go into 2021, we’ll continue to see improvements in website user experience and design", said Litwin.
How does Facebook marketing, Instagram and YouTube help D2C brands flourish?
When you think of Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and Twitter, I bet you think of just socializing, boring tik tok videos, celebrity posts and teenagers fighting for followers as if it were the end of the world. How does one go from that to making a livelihood by using social media?
