Lately, I've noticed an influx of competition in the "Subscription Service" industry.
Companies offering their products to be available intermittently whether it is a monthly, bi-monthly, yearly or what have you type of subscription. Everyone is trying to operate under this business model because it is working. Consumers like receiving things in the mail, and the thrill of opening something to see what was put together for you is enough motivation to make this model such a success. Whether it is underwear, socks, razors, or nostalgic products based on a hit TV show like Sophistigeek.
Following trends like this in the business world is always interesting, and I am curious to see how the business model fairs in the coming years.
