Subscription isn’t new. Consumers have been signing up to their favourite magazines for years to ensure they don’t miss a single copy. But in the early 2000s the idea of signing up to get the latest films on DVD sent to you through the post took off and LoveFilm transformed the way consumers rented films… that is until streaming services took hold and transformed the industry all over again. 

But several other businesses have taken hold over the last decade – Graze and Birchbox continue to go from strength to strength, proving customer loyalty is intrinsically linked with a great product and excellent service. 

But what is the opportunity for retailers? In this webinar we will discuss how retailers can capitalise on the subscription economy.

Former board member and MD of LoveFilm, Jim Buckle will discuss how he delivered 8x subscriber growth and led the business to a successful exit via a trade sale to Amazon in 2011. Now, COO at Feelunique he will also share his thoughts on how retailers can capitalise on the subscription trend. Join Feelunique, Essential Retail and razor blade subscription company, Cornerstone, to learn all about the subscription opportunity.

We ask:

  • Where has the subscription boom come from?
  • What does a good subscription service look like in 2018?
  • How can retailers use subscription to their advantage?
