Over the past few months, when talking with friends and family and sharing the high level ideas and vision of RockLife, questions were asked such as:
"What exactly is it?"
"How does a Subscription box work?
"How do I know what I am going to get each month?"
"How do I know if I am going to like the product?"
These questions led to the first blog post…….What is this Subscription Box thing all about?
What exactly is it?
Subscription boxes are a concept that have been around for quite a number years and the industry has been growing. In the US, you can basically get a subscription box for anything you can think of! Subscription boxes usually contain an assortment of products that are based around a common theme. They are usually delivered monthly to subscribers of the service and the customer can select the duration of the service. Most of the actual products in the subscription box are a surprise each month to the subscriber.
With a RockLife box, you will receive a variety of healthy snacks each month giving you the opportunity to experience new brands and try products that you may not find readily available on the island. It also offers convenience, delivered to your doorstep monthly. It will provide you with a few more options to grab when you are rushing out of the door or when you are looking for an afternoon snack at your desk.
How does it work?
You select the size of your box and the theme of your box and then place your order. For RockLife, if the order is placed by the 30th of the month, you will receive your subscription box the third week of the following month. For example: Order by September 30th, your box will be delivered the week of October 14th. Order on October 5th, your box will be delivered the week of November 18th. You will then receive your box every month. You can go in and cancel your subscription at any time.
How do I know what I am going to get each month?
You don't! We will not tell you the exact products you are going to get, that is part of the experience of subscription boxes! Whilst you know the theme you have selected, the products in the box will vary month to month. If you follow RockLife on social media, you will see some product sneak peeks that will help to give you an idea of what will be included. Each month, once all orders are in and the boxes are curated, we will post an overview on social media of the box that went out. This will give you an opportunity to see what was included in the prior month box.
How do I know if I am going to like the products?
Again, you don't! Like when you buy a new product on the grocery store shelf, unless you have tried it you don't know if you will like it! That is part of the fun – you get to taste test new snacks you may have never had before. You are guaranteed a variety in the box and there may be some you don't like; everyone has different taste buds!
One of the best ways to fully understand the concept is to subscribe for one of our boxes and try it out. The next orders need to be in by October 31st and you will receive your box the week of November 18th.
Give it a try and Love How You Eat!
