This listing is for a subscription business created in January 2016 in the entertainment niche. The business sends customers based in the US and Canada a box including several products related to a popular form of entertainment. This is a business that brings in recurring revenue and has seen quarter-on-quarter growth in subscriber numbers.
All of the products for the boxes are sourced in the US. Purchasing products at wholesale has allowed the Seller to negotiate better rates as the number of subscribers increases. Since the products are ordered and shipped on a monthly basis, the business does require a fair amount of work, especially with planning and execution. It is worth mentioning though that the shipping is handled by a third-party fulfillment center.
To acquire new customers, the business uses a combination of paid advertising (Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest), social media, and email marketing. There is also a blog on the website that features three new pieces of content per week. The content is mostly outsourced, but the Seller does write two posts per month.
Social media marketing is important for this business. The seller is active on social media and posts almost daily. Although there are associated profiles on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Pinterest, the Facebook and Instagram accounts bring in the most amount of traffic.
The email list has over 2800 subscribers that receive a series of automated emails upon signup or a coupon lead magnet. A newsletter is sent out twice per month with additional emails if the Seller decides to run a sale.
Average Monthly Revenue: $22,421
