A distribution strategy may include several channels with a separate pricing strategy for each. It is also common for a distribution strategy to include methods of managing channel partners such as offering incentives to meet sales goals. Distribution typically has a geographical element and it's common to use different channels from one region to the next. For example, partners may be used to access international markets.
