Hapbee Technologies, Inc., a wellness technology company utilizing groundbreaking magnetic field technology in its Hapbee wearable, is pleased to announce its 2021 multipronged D2C e-commerce strategy.
“2020 was a year of tremendous growth and learning for our company,” said Scott Donnell, Chief Executive Officer of Hapbee. “Over the past several months, our team coalesced valuable insights from marketing test programs and customer feedback to craft what I believe is a top-tier D2C e-commerce strategy. This strategy, which is intended to ramp up in Q2 2021, will play a key role in our planned full-scale commercial launch this year.”
Hapbee’s D2C e-commerce strategy is centered around three pillars: a seamless and educational “customer-first” purchasing experience; the development of personal, lifelong connections with users; and enhanced wellness market exposure. The Company believes this strategy will enable it to penetrate the rapidly growing wearable technology market, which Grand View Research (“GVR”) valued at USD 32.63 billion in 2019. Furthermore, GVR reported in June of last year that the global wearable technology market is projected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 15.9% from 2020 to 2027.
