However, amidst all these issues, this pandemic somehow resulted in certain improvements on environmental and humanitarian grounds. The same goes for the business sector. On the one hand, Covid-19 made some brick-and-mortar businesses shut their stores. On the other hand, the pandemic has had an indirect positive effect on the adaptability of the business. According to McKinsey, companies are digitizing their internal operations. The fast-evolving landscape for growth has pushed DTC businesses to look for tools and tactics to get an edge over their competitors and combat challenges. One of the key challenges companies are facing is building an agile and skilled digital team that can accelerate their business growth. Many companies hire a digital marketing agency to enhance their online presence and revenue. This is a good strategy, but if your business is expanding, it’s good to go with the BOT model.
What Is a BOT Model?The BOT concept is nothing new. Instead, this business model has been utilized by companies for several years. However, BOT has mostly been preferred by the IT sector to increase their capabilities and expand their business. But now there’s good news for D2C brands; Saffron brings you the BOT model designed as per the dynamic DTC landscape. But what exactly is BOT, and how can it leverage your DTC Business? Well, BOT stands for Build-Operate-Transfer. The business model is basically an integrated partnership between the DTC brand and the agency providing BOT service. You know how difficult it is to build a team that stands on your objectives. But you are not alone - around 75% of companies are struggling to optimize their talent acquisition process. This problem can be squared away by BOT. DTC brands like you can contact our experts and let us know your requirements - what type of talent you are looking for, what’s your budget, etc. After understanding what you want, our recruiting team will create Job Descriptions and upload them on various portals and our channels to find the right talent team for you. In addition, we have access to a pool of talent that makes hiring easier and faster. Once we get enough job applications, our HR team starts shortlisting candidates based on your requirements. Furthermore, we will conduct one-on-one interviews and exams, including aptitude and skill tests (per your industry). We also do background checks and test the team/expert on various verticals. After selecting the team/specialist, we will teach and upskill them so that they can cater to your needs. The team/expert will operate from your office but under our control. They will do all your daily tasks as per your business process and workflow and collaborate with your in-house team. Once the team or expert adapts to your business process and you are assured that the unit can deliver the results you want, you can take control of them fully. After this, the team or specialist will be fully yours and work under your payroll. The whole process of the BOT model is divided into three categories: Build, Operate and Transfer. Let’s understand each phase:
- Build: This phase includes hiring the right candidate(s). Based on your requirements, we source candidates from our extensive talent pool. We vet each candidate from the ground up and upskill them to make them suitable for your needs. We set up a system so that the team/expert will operate from your office under our control in the most effective and productive manner.
- Operate: In this phase, we professionally manage and handle your team/specialist so that you can focus on your D2C business roadmap and core activities. We have top minds from the industry who will train and scale your team/expert’s skills and knowledge so that they can provide you with the best results.
- Transfer: It is the final phase in which you decide to take legal ownership of the team/expert. At the end of the contract period, our team will conduct a scanning of each candidate so that you hire only the right talent for your business. This way, you can try a candidate(s) in your work process without paying a significant upfront cost for onboarding, and hire them when you get assured.
