As some of you may know I run a small bookclub monthly box subscription. Previously I posted information on a blog specific to that however I have decided to combine my business with my main blog. Don’t worry other than me updating some posts over this week, there will be in future maybe 2-3 posts a month.
The business has been on a bit of a hiatus over the festive season but it due to be open again on 5th January with a new box.
The theme for this box is The Universe. The box will be called The Amongst The Stars Box and will focus more of Sci-Fi fantasy, so be prepared to let those stars shine 🙂
There are a few changes to the business when it reopens. I’ll run through these below.
1) There will no longer be just 1 type of box available. There will be 3 more options. The 4 options available are;
Accessories Pack – £10, this will include all the items in the basic book box except the book itself.
Standard Box – £15 – contains a paperback version and a minimum of 3 items.
Kindle version – £15, this comes exactly the same as the standard box but with a kindle voucher instead for those who prefer an E-Reader.
Deluxe Version – £22, this comes the same as the standard box however there will be EITHER a hardback version of the book OR extra goodies (minimum of 5).
Hopefully this will open up the availability to purchase for other customers.
Boxes will be available for purchase between 5th and the 13th of each month and will be sent out on the 1st -3rd of the following month
2) The next change will be with the Subscriber Houses. Rather than houses rewarded monthly it will now be 6 monthly.
Points now will be given to individuals who win the monthly challenge. That one person rather than the entire house will win a small prize and 10 points to their House. After 6 months the house that has the most points wins and an extra item will be included in the box for all of those in that house.
3) The next change is regarding refunds. There has always been an option to secure your delivery with a signed for option. I did consider increasing the price of the postage to cover this automatically however I still feel that it should be optional.
However if you do not select the option for signed for and your package goes missing I will not be liable to replace the missing box. I always get proof of postage to show an item was posted. If it fails to turn up then it is no longer my responsibility. If you wish to protect your package in the unlikely event of it going missing then I suggest you pay for the extra shipping option. I will however give a partial refund for the missing order no more than 50% of its value.
In regards to damaged boxes and items, I will replace those. That will remain as it is.
4) The other change is in regards to the Reps I used previously. I have made the decision to not have reps for the boxes and instead run a monthly giveaway for someone to win the following months box instead.
I think that pretty much covers everything that is going on with the business when I have the mini relaunch in January.
