Davpack to provide expert advice via YouTube

In today’s fast-paced and highly competitive economy, companies have to make quick decisions, and with lead times always tight, the internet is rapidly replacing traditional ways of buying commodities, including packaging.

This isn’t highly polished advertising like you see on television, but simple demonstrations from real people

Many buyers no longer have the time to get wrapped up in face-to-face meetings, detailed specifications and quote comparisons when sourcing standard packaging supplies, according to packaging suppliers Davpack.

“In the past, companies could wait days to see a sales rep to discuss their packaging needs, and then more days, or even weeks, for the packaging to arrive,” says Sales Director Paul Davenport. “However, at Davpack we have now shortened the process to as little as 24 hours, and often less, by combining the latest internet technology with our unrivalled in-stock choice and customer service.”

Instead of waiting to see sales reps or to receive samples, Davpack customers can now view product demonstrations on YouTube and the company’s website. These demonstrations give essential insight into product specifications, construction, size and colour choices.

“It’s not always straightforward understanding the size or nature of a piece of packaging, or how easy it is to construct our book, postal and cardboard boxes from flat, until you see someone actually handling the product”, continues Paul Davenport. “Customers can then make a more informed judgement. This isn’t highly polished advertising like you see on television, but simple demonstrations from real people, in the same way that we point people to our real customer reviews rather than make unsubstantiated quality and service claims.”

First uploaded and ready to view are videos promoting the advantages of Large Letter and Small Parcel Postal Boxes, which can help mail order businesses make significant savings on their delivery costs. There are even demonstrations showing just how quick and easy it is to construct them from the flat packed state in which they are delivered.

Other videos filmed and ready to be uploaded over the next few weeks include demonstrations of how to build a No Nails Plywood Box and how to use and get the longest working life out of a heat sealer. There will also be films about the diverse uses and benefits of different kinds of boxes, including a practical demonstration of how much quicker it is to construct and seal one of Davpack’s Pop-Up Postal Boxes than standard postal or cardboard boxes.

Davpack is also opening the way for customers to post product reviews on their website. They can already review their whole shopping experience with Davpack at Trustpilot, and very nearly 1000 have done so, giving the company an officially ‘Excellent’ rating of 9.7 out of 10. Now, users can also have their say about an individual product, something that should help other shoppers decide if it is appropriate for their own needs.

The new videos can be viewed on YouTube or the appropriate product page on Davpack’s website. For more information, please call the Davpack Customer team on 0844 800 9844.
