Shopping through online channels is small but growing rapidly, he said. “I have to be there, register my presence, even if I lose money,” he said. He said they adopted a strategy of selling directly to customers in the early stages of product launch and then expanding to the mass market. “(Introducing) digital solutions first, listening to consumer feedback, and then going offline. This works better. Learning takes place much more digitally. You can interact with customers in a broader way than offline, and then quickly move to the mass market.
