Today’s topic centres around one of the biggest mistakes I see new business owners make when they start a business: Customer Service.
Let’s kick this off with a question.
What do you picture in your mind when you think of handling Customer Service in your Subscription Box?
What about marketing?
Do you ever think about how your customer service can be used as a marketing asset?
No? Well, it should.
In fact you can turn your customer service into an asset so powerful that it makes you more money and there is nothing your competitors can do to stop it.
But only when you do it right.
I’m not going to try and tell you how to suck eggs when it comes to customer service. Because honestly, it’s simple:
What I want to talk to you today is the culmination of the last few years of running a successful subscription box business that has generated hundreds of thousands of dollars as well as helping others to do the same. I’ll be sharing a few key insights and then breakdown the 4 “pillars” as I’ve been calling them, into actionable elements that you can use to help grow your subscription box business.
One of the great things about helping other Sub-Boxes with their business have been the ability to take a look under the hood and find out what makes them tick.

For those that don’t know SEO stands for Search Engine Optimisation. This is the process of getting Google or Bing (or whatever your search engine of choice is) to rank your Subscription Box website higher in the search rankings, you are aiming for the coveted Number 1 spot. OnPage SEO is the process of making sure your website can be read by google easily and it actually KNOWS what your site is all about.
Now this isn’t something that happened overnight. In fact, it took a good 3-6 months before I actually started seeing any fruits of this labor, however it wasn’t really that hard to accomplish.
