In the Module Two milestone, you selected a product and developed a persona that reflects your target market. Your work on this milestone must be based on the same product selection. Review the feedback from your instructor on your persona, and make any needed improvements before completing this assignment. Your work on this milestone must be based on that corrected persona.
In this milestone, you will consider how to make decisions about place, meaning the distribution channels to use for your chosen product. Specifically, you will consider trends in the marketplace that are affecting distribution channel use and which distribution channel may be appropriate for the target market (i.e., persona).
You will receive instructor feedback on this milestone, revise your work, and add it to your project submission.

Specifically, you must address the following rubric criteria:

Distribution Channel: Recommend one potential distribution channel (direct-to-consumer, retail, wholesale, distributor, or agent/broker) for your chosen product, and explain why it is appropriate given your product and persona. (Use the persona you developed in the Module Two milestone with revisions based on instructor feedback.)
