How I Generated $20k in Extra Revenue with a Holiday Gift Box | EP 94Nov 02, 2022
Every year for the last five years I’ve sold a Holiday Gift Box. This year was no different. What was different was that my Holiday Gift Box sold out in only four days! And it brought $20,000 in extra revenue into my business.
Should you offer a Holiday Gift Box to your audience? Yes! If you already have a subscription box, you should absolutely offer a Holiday Gift Box. And if you have an audience but haven’t launched your subscription box yet, you should also offer a Holiday Gift Box.
Many members of Launch Your Box have used a Holiday Gift Box for proof of concept before launching. Members like Nicole who launched a one-time holiday box for guinea pig owners. When it was a HUGE hit, she knew she could launch her subscription box with confidence. She now has hundreds and hundreds of monthly subscribers and won a major subscription box industry award earlier this year.
My process for launching a one-time Holiday Gift Box was simple and it started before I had any idea what I was going to put in the box:
- I set up a waitlist page in September.
- I set up a waitlist in my text app in September.
- I built up excitement that my Holiday Gift Box was coming and drove people to the waitlist.
- Social posts
- One day before the launch I sent one email to the waitlist and one text to the text waitlist offering them first dibs.
- Launch day started with a LIVE during which I generated feelings of:
- I started running ads on launch day.
- I sent one email to my entire email list.
- I sent one text to my entire text list.
- I posted twice on social media about the box.
- I changed my Facebook header.
By the end of day one, I had sold over half the boxes.
- On day two, I resent the email to non openers and posted about the boxes on social media twice.
- By day three, I only had 100 boxes left. I sent a last chance email to any non openers who hadn’t purchased and posted on social media once.
- On day four - the last day of the launch - I mentioned the Holiday Gift Box on a LIVE and posted about it once.
I sold out of all my Holiday Gift Boxes on day four! Oh, and I did all of this without having any product in hand.
