Receiving a butcher box delivered to your door each month certainly makes shopping easier. You don't have to spend 15 minutes standing over the meat counter, meticulously reading labels and trying to decide what to feed your family that week.
If you've enjoyed the butcher box service you've subscribed to, then you may be thinking of leaving a review. And if you're like most people, the intent of your review is to let the company that sent you the box know what you think. But consider this — your review will actually be read by others who are thinking of subscribing to the service. As such, you should take the time to make sure your review presents them with real information that helps them decide whether or not the box subscription is right for them. Here are some tips to help you do just that.
1. List the products you got.
When subscribing to online box services, like butcher boxes, people are sometimes hesitant because they're not sure if the boxes will truly contain what the company claims they will. So it will be really useful if, in your review, you give a run-down of what was actually in your box. Give details about each item. For instance, don't just say "4 burgers." Say "4 grass fed chuck burgers, 1/3 pound each."
2. Say how you cooked the items.
Another common issue with reviews -- especially when they are reviews of meat products -- is that people give the item a not-so-awesome review when really they were the one that cooked it improperly. For example, if you were sent a chuck roast and cooked it by searing it on the grill for 10 minutes, and then you just reviewed the meat as "tough and chewy," that reflects poorly on the meat when really, you were the one who messed up by using a fast-cook method on a piece of meat that should really be slow cooked. If you did not like a certain cut of meat, be honest about it in your review, but do say how you cooked it, too, so that readers know where you are coming from.
3. Comment on the service, not just the product.
It's easy to get caught up with reviewing the actual meats you enjoyed and to forget to mention anything else -- like whether the box was delivered on time, how it was packaged, and how responsive the customer service team was when you called to order the box. These details matter, since when people shop for a box subscription, they are clearly looking for something fun and convenient.
Overall, just be thorough and detailed in your butcher box review. The more information you include, the more useful the review will be to other readers.Share
