Why You Should Start a Sock of the Month Subscription

Why You Should Start a sock of the month Subscription

If you’re looking to add some excitement to your sock collection, you may want to consider trying out a sock of the month subscription service, where you’ll get fun and unique socks delivered to your door every month! And when you subscribe to one of these services, you won’t just be helping your feet stay dry and comfortable all day long; you’ll also be helping out some great charities. Find out why you should start a sock of the month subscription below!

Thinking about starting a subscription box

Here’s why you should: There are a ton of subscription boxes out there, but what differentiates each one is how great its hook is. If your hook isn’t great, no one will subscribe to your box and you won’t make any money. With a sock-of-the-month subscription, though, you have unlimited potential for unique hooks because all you need to do is send someone some socks every month and find a way to make it memorable. (See next slide for 10 ideas.) Best yet? Everyone needs socks!

The various types of subscriptions out there

A subscription box is just like it sounds—you get something new and exciting in your mailbox every month. The most popular boxes are sock subscriptions, but beauty- and snack-themed boxes are also pretty popular. A subscription service like Netflix (which you can use to watch movies and TV shows online) or Hulu (which has all your favorite TV shows, plus an extensive library of movies to choose from) also falls into this category. A magazine subscription is also similar: Every month you’ll get a new issue delivered to your door, in print or digitally. One thing all these services have in common is that you’re paying upfront for a set number of items—and then saving money on each item compared with buying them individually.

How to choose what to subscribe to

When you get started with online shopping, one of your first considerations will be deciding what to subscribe to. Fortunately, there are plenty of options from which to choose, so how do you decide what to put on your wish list? First and foremost, think about your interests. Do you have any hobbies or special passions that relate back to something you might want as a subscription? Maybe you’re an avid runner and enjoy yoga; perhaps knitting is your secret hobby. If that’s true, consider signing up for regular shipments of yarn and stitch markers as well as socks (since they always seem to go missing when we need them most). The same goes for other interests such as coffee or tea lovers who don’t mind receiving new brands or types every so often.

Things that can go wrong with your monthly box

Getting socks you don’t like; it happens. If you subscribe to enough boxes, it’s bound to happen eventually. After all, subscription boxes can include pretty much anything, from t-shirts to spices. While it might be fun to receive gifts in any and every box, not everything will appeal to your personal taste (or sense of fashion). It’s OK—just remember that each month offers a chance for something new! Just make sure you have ample socks in your sock drawer before attempting another box.
