Brief History of Subscription Boxes
A subscription box is a package of retail products sent to a customer directly on a recurring basis. The subscription box industry is relatively new to the market. Birchbox, arguably the most recognizable service, led the trend in subscription box with its launch in 2010. Since then, monthly subscription boxes have become increasingly widespread and diversified. The use of subscription boxes are rising in popularity both among consumers and businesses with its suitability for a wide range of markets and products. Currently, it is estimated that there are at least 400 different kinds of subscription boxes in the United States alone and more overseas.
Why Subscription Boxes?
Today, there's a subscription box that caters to your every need and want. Boxes are conveniently delivered to your doorstep. Most companies allows you to subscribe without commitment and cancel anytime. There are a lot of reasons why subscription boxes are popular. In our opinion, the "best" subscription boxes have these top three common factors:
Curation (Product, product, product) - This is probably the most important aspect of a subscription box. The contents can make or break a subscription service. As consumers, we expect a certain level of quality based how much we spend, so subscription box companies work hard to find good and relevant products.
Value (Get your money's worth, discover new products) - What makes subscription boxes popular is that they often contain products with a total value that doubles or sometimes triples the amount you paid. With that said, I think the true value of a box is relative. Some people find value in getting products worth more than the amount they paid, while others find value in simply discovering products they love. In addition, there are several subscription companies that create exclusive items that you can't purchase anywhere else. Prices for these items usually exceed their retail counterparts because of the limited release.
Mystery (A monthly surprise) - The appeal of subscription box is being able to select a company with the type of products you are interested in without always knowing exactly what would be included. The element of surprise makes opening the box interesting. It is like Christmas year round!
Pricing & Frequency
Prices for subscription boxes ranges widely from as low as $3 to $50 a month. There are also subscriptions sent every other month or quarterly that ranges from $30 to $100. Choosing a subscription service is not only dependent on what is defined as a "good" box, but also what price range you are comfortable with based on your budget.
