Investing in Marketplace Distribution Management is investing in your Brand Value
The Counter Diversion service is a micro vertical within the Marketplace monitoring industry that specifically focuses on returning distribution channel control to the manufacturer. Counter Diversion's algorithm analyzes dozens of data points to identify the source of product diversions to unauthorized 3P Sellers (Grey Marketers), reducing price compression and restoring control of product and Brand value to the Brand.
The dynamics of marketplace sales channels like Amazon, eBay, Tao Bao, Jet, WalMart and others, will constantly put pressure on the value of products and ultimately the value of Brands. The Dealers that you set up to sell your products in certain markets are no longer competing with the account across town, they are now competing with accounts and sellers across the country. This increased competition and Seller anonymity, drive price pressure on your products, especially when service levels between sellers are consistent, and the only differentiation is price.
