Expand Your Business, Recover Sales Lost From Tobacco

cigaretteIf you are a business owner who has seen sales fall due to cigarettes becoming less of a commodity, you are not alone. Many businesses (especially smaller, mom and pop shops) have been through the same situation, and have been able to recover due to the rise in popularity and success of e-cigarettes.

The rate of smokers who begin smoking decreases each year, and along the same lines, the number of smokers who are quitting are also on the rise. What this means for businesses whose sales have included that of cigarettes in the past are most likely looking at decreased sales in tobacco. The rising taxes, rising prices, and the many health disadvantages have caused smokers to either quit or seek alternatives. If this is something your business has faced, have you thought about the possibilities of selling electronic cigarettes to help pick up the slack?

Smaller shops are beginning to implement e-cigarettes in their inventories because even in today’s economy, they are selling right along their analog counterparts. In many instances, they have even helped salvage tobacco businesses on the brink of failure. And what is even more promising, is that there are still many smokers who are not yet aware of e-cigarettes, and that switching to the electronic alternatives can offer many conveniences and benefits.

There are many reasons consumers are happy to be switching to electronic cigarettes, and our variety of brands are perfect for filling your shelves if you are looking to add e-cigarettes to your selection of tobacco products.

Vapor Facts: Why Consumers Are Choosing the Alternative

art.e.cigarette.cnnInternational Vapor Group’s CEO, Nick Molina was recently interviewed by ehow.com for a feature on electronic cigarettes and the vaping movement. Here are his reasons as to why this industry is seeing such tremendous growth, and why these products are such a hit with consumers. It’s really more than just a craze now!

-With cigarette prices souring to as much as $12-$13 because of taxes, and the cost of is significantly less when vaping. Even when it means putting out between $50-$100 for a starter kit in the beginning, the expenses of vaping are dramatically less than those of smoking traditional cigarettes. “Our cartridges are $2 to $3 each, which is equivalent to a pack and a half of traditional cigarettes,” said Molina.

-Same experience, little hassle. “It gives the same type of sensations as a traditional cigarette and provides the oral fix,” Molina said. Electronic cigarettes have enabled users to have all of the things they love about smoking without the most troublesome: the actual smoke and tobacco. E-cigarettes are made to give the same pleasure, including the overly important need to take care of the hand-to-mouth and oral habits, in addition to the desire for nicotine.

-Peace of mind. Those 4,000 chemicals that get laced into cigarettes and their filters are nowhere to be found within e-cigarettes. They produce no second hand smoke, so they can be used around others, including the elderly and children, without concern over fumes. “In addition, there’s no fire, no tar, no smell and less occurrence of yellowing teeth,” said Molina.

-Greater sense of control. E-cigarettes offer users the ability to choose many options with their products. This often enables them to gradually lessen their nicotine intake, consciously. The choice of flavors and features on products are also there for the choosing, allowing users to get even more comfortable with their e-cigarettes, as opposed to traditional cigarettes which offer not even a fraction of the conveniences and options.

There is a lot of discussion happening these days in regards to e-cigarettes, and simply, these products are seeing this ever expanding popularity because they are truly working for smokers who want another option. “A lot of consumers do look to e-cigs as an alternative to quitting smoking with a high level of success,” Molina said. “They are no longer smoking traditional cigarettes. Our motto is: ‘If you can’t quit, switch.’ ”

VaporZone: A New Direction

hero_vaporzoneOur newest brand, VaporZone was recently launched to much hype. This brand represents a step in a new direction for us, forging ahead in yet another emerging area of the electronic cigarette industry.

Innovation is at the core of who we are, and VaporZone fully embodies this. Having established a solid footing with South Beach Smoke, EverSmoke, and the very innovative NutriCigs line of electronic cigarettes, VaporZone takes these concepts even further.

VaporZone products are the highest performing, most acutely engineered electronic cigarettes currently made. Consisting of a wide range of e-cigarette vaporizers, these products target the most advanced users who are looking for the most power, the greatest vapor, and the most technologically developed products available. VaporZone also takes us in a new direction with the launching of a series of retail locations, that will serve the vaping community as a hub for all things related to vaping.

To put it bluntly, VaporZone offers everything. From the most advanced vaporizers, such as the VaporZone Rebel, the Pro, and the Pulse, to also standard electronic cigarettes such as 2-piece models that work with disposable cartridges, as well as disposable electronic cigarettes. There is also a very large, very comprehensive selection of accessories that enable the user to customize their products in a multitude of ways as they see fit.

Another of VaporZone’s unique features is the ability to custom blend your e-liquid. With 50 flavor choices that can mixed to over 30,000 different blends, customers are already raving about how exciting it is to have this option.

As this industry grows, so does the available technology. Many e-smokers have begun to move away from the entry-level e-cigarettes, wanting more in every sense of the word.

Targeting the Customer

hero_3brands2dHaving the right products for the right customers is ideal when you are thinking in terms of sales. While there is a great element of guessing involved, knowing who your customers are, and what they are going to be looking for can really impact your sales. International Vapor Group makes four different brands with four different profiles in mind. Also, we aim to target a multitude of customers with them. Here is a look at our four brands and the customers they aim to reach.

South Beach Smoke

South Beach Smoke conveys the glamorous, exciting side of electronic smoking. They especially appeal to users in their 20s and 30s, who want stylish looks and great performance. These are excellent for beginners, and perfect for those who’ve used similar products but want better performance. South Beach Smoke offers many e-cigarette options, with a wide variety of starter kits, disposable e-cigarettes, accessories, and flavors to appeal to the smoking masses.

EverSmoke

EverSmoke was designed to mimic South Beach Smoke in quality and selection, however the target audience is somewhat older. In an effort to take care of everyone, we saw the need to cater to those who are not necessarily attracted to the looks of South Beach Smoke. EverSmoke offers similar products with additional options, and flavor choices, as well as standard products like starter kits, disposables, and accessories.

NutriCigs

NutriCigs was created for goal-oriented smokers who want more out of their electronic cigarettes, and those who want specific results. For adults who smoke, and want to have greater benefits from vaping, in addition to the nicotine, NutriCigs are available in three all-natural blends that can improve your daily life. Designed to help boost energy, curb cravings, and to get a better night’s rest, NutriCigs give e-smokers additional freedom and enjoyment of life.

VaporZone

VaporZone was made for vapers who are looking for more than a basic experience when vaping. As the industry advances, so do the customers, and while most don’t take up vaping as a hobby, there are many who do. For those looking for the highest performing, top of the line vaping machines, VaporZone offers a comprehensive selection of vaporizers targeted towards the “experts” of this market. Also unique, the VaporZone concept includes the addition of vapor shops, signature retail locations.

Our products were made with the customer in mind. One brand can stretch far, however four enables us to cover this market exceptionally well! 4 brands, 4 customers, 1 company!
