Business-to-Consumer (also Business to Client ( B2C or BtC ) or Direct to Consumer ( D2C or DtC )) stands for communication and business relationships between entrepreneurs and private individuals ( consumers , customers ), in contrast to communication relationships with other companies ( Business-to-Business , B2B), to authorities ( Business-to-Administration , B2A) or to employees ( Business-to-Employee , B2E).
B2C is increasingly coming to the fore through new media in the form of self- marketing over classic media work (as a relationship with the media as institutions): This includes your own website as an advertising medium as well as online trade ( e-commerce ), especially for retail companies, who try in this way to open up new customer groups. The Amazon Go system can serve as a current example . B2C on the Internet is often handled through affiliate programs .
