There are many places electronic cigarettes should be sold, for both the benefit of smokers and the benefit of retailers who can capitalize on the growing demand. If you have a retail store, or purchase the inventory for one, here are some of the best places for selling e-cigs. If you are interested in adding IVG brands and products to your store, please contact us to see if we can establish a relationship.
This is an obvious one, as retail pharmacies are one of the top hits for traditional cigarettes. However, not only do these locations cater to current e-smokers, they are also great for catering to curious tobacco smokers. As these locations bring customers in the door for a large range of different products, having e-cigarettes will open up an additional channel of sales. Pharmacies are great for impulse purchases, and having e-cigarettes available can be a great option for those who want disposable e-cigarettes as well as products like Express Starter Kits such as those from EverSmoke and South Beach Smoke. These settings are excellent for bringing customers back for products such as refill cartridges and additional accessories, enabling you to offer products beyond the impulse buys.
Hotels are often fiercely non-smoking zones, to the dismay of smokers who are looking to relax and enjoy themselves. Maintaining an air of accommodation, nonsmokers typically get first preference and smokers are left with few options. It is very common for smoking to be prohibited inside of hotel rooms, as well as in public areas, such as lounges and the pool, and it can make for a rather uncomfortable experience for smokers altogether. In an effort to cater to all guests, carrying e-cigarettes and making them available and acceptable for use is a viable option for hotels who want to please all guests without creating barriers. Selling e-cigarettes in hotel bars as well as in gift shops would add one more option for sales, and give smokers a solution that enables them to be comfortable and satisfied.
Long one of the top spots for grabbing goods like cigarettes, beverages, candy and snacks on the go, gas stations are excellent venues for selling e-cigarettes successfully. The majority of gas stations do not offer a large selection of e-cigarettes, nor do they emphasize top quality, and that is one of the benefits of carrying IVG brands in your inventory; better than the competition, and more likely to drive customers back for repeat purchases knowing you have the better products.
