Our goal behind the Cratejoy Marketplace is to help your business grow. We often choose boxes to be featured in a collection on our marketplace, included in an email blast, or be listed as a “trending” subscription on the homepage.
Trending subscriptions are determined by a number of factors, but the most common way to be featured as a trending subscription is to grow quickly in a short period of time. The following two factors are the most important for determining trending subscriptions:
- How many new marketplace subscribers your listing has generated in the last few days relative to your average.
- How favorably your listing has been reviewed by your subscribers.
These two factors helps us see which boxes people like (and like talking about) and which boxes are acquiring subscribers the fastest.
If you're trying to become a trending subscription there are a few things you can do to increase your chances to be featured.
- Contact bloggers, news sites, and other high traffic sites that are willing to feature your subscription (it’s helpful to do a flash sale or specific day promotion). This pushes a significant amount of traffic to your site which increases your chances of being featured.
- Encourage your subscribers to leave reviews. After you send out a shipment send out an email to your subscriber base and point them to the Cratejoy Marketplace to leave a review. The more reviews you have the more likely you'll be featured.
