Subscription boxes are still a thing and are hotter than ever. They’re getting so popular among consumers that even existing businesses with fully developed products are getting in the game.
Before , smaller shops and newbies might have feared stepping into this arena because of concerns regarding profitability, and designing the platform for customers. The task may have seemed daunting before companies like Subbly stepped into the market to help out entrepreneurs with a cool idea for a subscription box but who have no coding experience.
That’s right, Subbly is a turnkey solution so you do not have to have programming knowledge, to hire a developer or to download a bunch of shaky plugins on your existing website to make it work.
With a free registration and 14 day trial, users can sort through a variety of attractive themes, pick the right one and have a service up and running within minutes.
Subbly even allows those with existing blogs, websites or eCommerce platforms or sites to add a link or page to their site, eliminating the need to set up a totally new online shop.
Also, if you have a domain already in mind or purchased, you can set it up to link to Subbly. You can even select the option to allow your customers to customize their subscription, if you are so inclined to give them that option.
We’ve all heard of the importance of increasing the lifetime value of a customer and subscription services and boxes can increase the lifetime value and there are stats and data to back it up!
Several companies have used it to varying levels of success. Of course it depends on your product and whether it is something that customers would want on a periodic basis. Then there’s the marketing. But with Subbly, you can create an attractive site that will create confidence.
