Do you know what Korean subscription boxes are? Today, everyone knows about monthly boxes and maybe some of you already tried it. But what is it and how does it work? At the start, the box concept started in the United States in 2010. It was just a marketing strategy created to build up the customer’s loyalty. The main goal of this strategy: sell good quality products to customers for fair prices. The best thing is that it can be used by any company for any product. This concept became really famous and you can actually find a box for so many products such as food, beverage, clothes, books, jewelry, high-tech, goodies, … There definitely will be a box that will fit you.
How does it work: All the process is done on the internet and the box is sent anywhere you want. You can find between 4 and 8 good quality products in every single box. Finally, the total product value is superior to the price you paid. Usually, the box content is a secret to create a surprise effect on the customer when they receive it.
In this trend, we can find a lot of Korean subscription boxes on the internet with various Korean products.
