    Key factors you should take into account:
    #1 = Buying behaviour - how do customers buy the kind of offerings you are hoping to sell?
    #2 = transaction complexity - from the customer's perspective how well do they understand the offering and how much help do they require?
    #3 = Market Maturity - channel strategy should evolve as people become more familiar with the type of offering
    #4 = reach - what channel will give you the each to make your numbers
    #5 = profitability - will both you and your channel make money out of it?
    #6 = channel ready - how simple is it for the channel to take your offering on board and support it?
