It was a big night for all of us! We are super proud of these warriors, and are thrilled to have had the opportunity to sponsor them during this exciting time.

VaporFi has become one of the hottest names in the vapor products industry and lifestyle because they represent not only the pinnacle of products and quality, but also they have made a name for being exceptionally dynamic and offering customers more and more reasons to be a part of their unique #VapeFam.

Representing the cutting edge population of this industry, we are incredibly proud of what VaporFi is doing.

One of the most exciting things VaporFi has been up to as of late, in their many exciting exploits, is sponsorship of a variety of the top fighters on the professional MMA/ fighting circuit, and this past weekend, on Friday, November 20, Brandon Girtz, Brian Foster, and Luis “The Baboon” Palomino, three of the best fighters on the scene right now and all represented by VaporFi, put out all the stops to come out on top in their respective matches.

#TeamVaporFi is hotter than ever. These guys really outdid themselves. We are beyond stoked to be representing them!

Spotlight on VaporFi

VaporFi RDA Vox II Here is an in-depth look at VaporFi. As one of the most innovative names in the business, and hands-down the most exciting name in the e-cig industry, this brand is a force to be reckoned with! So, what are they up to these days? Here’s a glimpse!

Ground Expansion

VaporFi has become one of the hottest names in the industry when it comes to vape shop retail locations. These stores have become legitimate hubs in the areas they are located in, and they are the very best. There are 36 stores currently open or about to! The vape communities these shops serve adore the locations, and love that an option this classy and full-scale finally exists. In areas where there are no VaporFi’s, there is an increasing demand, and we could not be more excited about this brand’s continuous expansion through VaporFi franchising. It’s a great time to be in this industry!

Advanced Vaporizers & Mods

Always developing the line further, vapers are always looking for what this brand unveils next. Bridging the gap between smoking and technology, users want advanced, user-friendly, state-of-the-art, up to the minute vape gear, and we are more than happy to bring it to the table.

Reserve Collection

Seeing how the community is continuously advancing, and their tastes are becoming more refined, as well as in addition to the onset of the popularity of the “steeping” method of enhancing flavors, the Reserve Collection of fine e-liquids from VaporFi could not have launched any sooner.

Accessability

VaporFi has brought vaping, and all varieties of advanced vaping to the mainstream, giving users more ability to try new things and experience what higher levels. Previously, finding the most advanced products that were also of the highest quality was not the easiest endeavor, but VaporFi fills the void, and the vaping world is on high alert for everything they put out.

The Allure of the Vape Lounge

Franchising with VaporFiVape lounges are becoming more and more common. As the industry continues to expand, and more people begin vaping as an escape from tobacco, there has been increasing awareness towards ‘vape culture.’ In many major cities, as well as throughout suburbs and smaller metropolitan areas, vape lounges are opening frequently to offer vapers settings of cool relaxation where they can mingle and vape without feeling out of place, or worse, discriminated against. VaporFi, crossing the boundaries of all areas of the electronic cigarette industry, has succeeded immensely with this concept within all of their stores, giving users a retail location that doubles as an inviting lounge with a chill vibe.

Why are Vapers Flocking to Lounges?

More people vaping has allowed the industry to flourish on a social level; people want to be immersed in a setting that caters to all things vapor. From the comfort of being able to vape publicly with other like minded individuals, to having an atmosphere that is accepting of the enjoyment of vapor, the vape lounge gives users that sense of relaxation, pleasure, and social camaraderie. Vaping has taken on a unique subculture identity, and users want to enjoy their vapor among others who get it. The act of vaping goes so far beyond smoking; it’s a lifestyle for many that gives them full control over their nicotine usage without sacrificing the pleasure of smoking.

So What’s the Difference between a vape shop and a vape lounge?

Vape shops and vape lounges are distinctly different. Yes, the lines can be blurred, as in the case of VaporFi, which is not the typical vape retail environment, however vape lounges cater more to the concept of relaxing, socializing and indulging. On the other hand, vape shops are business-focused, with more emphasis on retail sales.

What to Know Before Embarking on an E-Cigarette Startup

e-cigarette startup infoIf you are looking to open up an e-cigarette retail venture or are in the process of implementing electronic cigarettes into your inventory, here is some useful info that can help you along the way. As one of the fastest growing niche markets out there, electronic cigarettes are an excellent entrepreneurial direction. Here are some of the basics to help you along the way with your e-cigarette startup.

Whether you’re opening your own store, adding select brands to your current location, or are going the franchise route with a brand such as VaporFi, the options are very much limitless. So limitless in fact, it can seem rather overwhelming to find the most reputable companies to work with amongst the masses.

Step One: Research

When researching brands to potentially work with, you want to research their history and reputation extensively and thoroughly. Check with the better Business Bureau, to see what kind of information has been provided. It’s also smart to contact the company yourself, via email and/or calling, to get a feel for how they present themselves. Professionalism, courtesy, a high level of customer service, and absolute knowledge on the products and company are especially important factors.

Step Two: Research Products.

Finding a brand that resonates and correlates to your business is essential, however just as important are the products they sell. In the e-cigarette market there is such a large variety of different products with an incredible range of quality. How marketable these products are, and how much customer demand there is are things to keep in mind. Key items to have in a brand: USA made liquids, a wide variety of e-cigarette styles, and a large selection of flavors and nicotine strengths.

One key factor in distinguishing brand worth carrying, is how forthcoming they are about their ingredients. Any brand that is not straightforward or enthusiastic about what’s in there of the liquids, should be automatically be a no-go. More and more users are discerning about their products, and most know that quality comes from using the very best standards, ingredients, and ratios. Users are looking for performance, and safety so brand’s that are disclosing what they’re using are more likely to attract customers.

Creating a professional relationship with a brand is an obviously big decision, don’t jump in headfirst without some background info. For startup  e-cigarette retail ventures, we can’t recommend our brand VaporFi enough. Offering a wide variety of different options for vapor cig franchising, this brand’s solid reputation for top-of-the-line quality and selection has attracted customers all over the world. If you’d like to know more about working with IVG, in a business-to-business relationship, feel free to contact us to get the ball rolling.

Our Thoughts on PG & VG

Pg and VG CloudsWhen it comes to e-liquid companies, there’s so much discussion out there about what is safe, what isn’t, what is and is not regulated, what users should steer clear of, and what should absolutely not be on the market. As industry insiders, here is our take on the matter. We do not take the safety of our users lightly, and while regulation is not in place as of now to keep the e-liquids market in order, we are 100% committed to offering only the highest quality liquids available.

Safety Standards

Our brands South Beach Smoke and VaporFi carry some of the most extensive offerings of liquids in the industry. Our customers are overwhelmingly pleased with the level of quality that goes into these formulas, and the result shows in the performance; there are none that surpass. We manufacture liquids only in the USA, in a lab registered with the FDA as a tobacco manufacturer, and list all of our formulas on file with them for transparency.

PG: General Use is Common

PG, or propylene glycol is a controversial topic because some feel it should be avoided, while others feel it is safe for inhalation due to its being used in many products, both for body care and for ingestion. Some people do have allergies to it, which can pose a small level of risk, however these individuals have the option of using VG-based liquids. As for the rest of us, PG liquids are considered fine for general usage.

VG: Not all the Same

Vegetable glycerin can also bring up a discussion about standards. Where this is sourced from can be an issue, as sometimes it comes from peanuts, which can cause issues for individuals allergic to peanuts/ tree nuts. Ours is sourced from select producers of Malaysian palm for purity and safety.

Don’t Know What’s in E-Liquids?

Not with IVG brands. We disclose ingredients, and don’t use very many of them to produce our top-rated liquids, and we invite you to  think critically here: if e-liquids were so excessively dangerous, do you think they would be legally sold?

As far as e-liquids, PG, and VG go, their safety, and where standards are concerned, we are proud to be at the forefront of the industry.

How do Vaporizers Work?

How vaporizers workThe market of e-cigarettes has seen tremendous growth, expansion, and evolution in such a short period of time. It has always been such an innovative industry, and coupled with consumers who are equally creative, hands-on, and knowledgable about everything this industry entails, part of the growth has been spurred by these consumers who have assisted in the pioneering and great innovations that have taken place. For example, 5 years ago, mods were items better left to the experts. They were often comprised of different parts, and you really had to know what you were doing to use them properly.

In actuality, this is still the case, however, vapers now have the ability to purchase their items from reputable e-cigarette companies, such as VaporFi, to get exactly what they want, made specifically for vaping, and without needing to explore the world of electrical engineering to get the experience they’re desiring. While true mods, such as the VaporFi Vox II, are still for the most advanced among us, advanced vaporizers have entirely won the hearts of most vapers.

So if you’ve wondered how personal vaporizers work, here is an in-depth look at their inner functions, and how the vaping gets done with these advanced, high-powered personal devices that bring so much satisfaction to the lives of former tobacco smokers. Going beyond basic e-cigs, but expanding on that same technology, these machines are amazing!

There are several essential components within a vaporizer:

-The body or battery, for power and the actual device itself.

-The tank that holds the liquid.

-The atomizer that may or may not be included in the tank that vaporizes the liquid.

-The mouthpiece which the user inhales on.

The battery receives power via charging, and it powers the whole process. When the user puffs on the device, a charge of power is sent to the atomizer, heating it up and allowing it to vaporize the nicotine e-liquid instantly. The user then inhales, exhales, and enjoys the hit, which can vary in size, intensity, complexity, flavor, and consistency. When the liquid is used up, the device gets refilled. Simple, to the point, and entirely satisfying

Advanced vaporizers are just one example of how technology is changing the way everyday things are done with greater functionality, ease, and convenience without sacrificing pleasure and enjoyment. They have added great diversity into this market, and have made users very happy with their more technical, high-powered capabilities.

Regulation that Makes Sense

E-Cigarette RegulationsThe subject of electronic cigarette regulations is a common topic of discussion, debate, and rumor. While there are endless conflicting opinions, the FDA has been slow to make judgements and formally put most rules into play as there still remains a lack of firm evidence to choose a side. However, as positive as the response has been to these products from the public, and with little evidence to side with those who claim they are fully negative, it is a positive sign that we are beginning to see a rise in regulations that make sense and are in favor of e-cigarette usage. The most recent is coming from Washington State, where lawmakers are imposing a rule requiring electronic cigarette companies to sell their liquids with child-proof caps.

We are definitely in support of this, and are quite pleased. Child safety has long been a concern of the e-cigarette industry, and those on the outside looking in. One of the biggest concerns has always been keeping nicotine e-liquids out of the hands of children, and a rule such as this one aims to keep children safe, while still enabling adult users to have their liquids. It allows for more peace of mind, and less worry over accidents occurring. While nicotine is absolutely safe for inhalation and proper usage by adults, it can be toxic if ingested or harmful if it comes directly in contact with the skin.

Our brand VaporFi is firmly on board with this type of regulation because simply, it makes sense. As we are completely against our products being used by minors and those underage, adding an additional measure to keep children safe and our products out of the hands of those who should not be handling them is a very good thing that can seriously do no harm.

As the industry progresses and we continue to see electronic cigarette products being used more and more regularly, we are happy to see smart, intelligent regulations being implemented alongside. This adds to the credibility of the industry, and adds to the safe use of these innovative, life changing products.

Benefits of Franchising

VaporFi FranchseAre you considering getting into the electronic cigarette industry? Have you considered the possibilities that lie ahead in working with VaporFi to franchise your own location? Here is a look at the many pros of jumping in with the safety net of an experienced, successful brand.

Franchising in the e-cigarette industry offers many benefits, giving franchisees and franchisors exceptional profitability without a great deal of risk. The franchisor benefits from being able to expand without the high expense of overhead that comes with distribution, marketing, and being liable. While the franchisee benefits from being able to embark on a business with an established name and reputation. Here are some of the benefits of franchising, and why it makes perfect sense to use this method of starting a business.

Risk Reduction: Profitability from a franchise can typically be expected much faster than starting a business from scratch because a lot of the steps and work have been done already. Getting this type of business started is usually faster, and therefore it can start yielding money quicker.

Improved Management: One of the biggest downfalls to small businesses is a lack of solid management, however with franchising, especially with IVG, you get an excellent management team at your side.

Less Overhead Costs: Being part of a huge company includes great savings and lower costs because you are able to capitalize on bulk goods from suppliers, and do not have to be concerned over trying to get the lowest prices for what you need.

Automatic Clientele: Customers will recognize the brand instantly, trusting and knowing what they’ll be getting right off the bat.

VaporFi is one of the quickest growing e-cigarette brands in the industry, and their success did not come by chance. The brand is backed by a team of experienced professionals, who have watched this industry prosper while playing a major role in its innovative evolution. In a relatively short time, this brand has emerged as one of the most popular brands in the industry, known for their quality, selection, and wide range of exciting products. If you are considering starting a venture in this industry, VaporFi is one of the fastest tracks to success. Want to know more about how to get this started?

A Look at E-Cig Innovations

VaporFi Vox One of the most interesting aspects of the electronic cigarette is how many variations exist. For connoisseurs, it’s easy to get heavily involved in devices because they really are just that intriguing. Here is a look at the most common varieties, and how things have changed since the early days of electronic cigarettes when it was all about mimicking traditional cigarettes.

Basic E-Cigs: They are cornerstone of brands such as South Beach Smoke and EverSmoke. These devices still are a common point of entry into vaping for beginners. They were made to resemble every nuance of a traditional cigarette, and basically recreate the concept of smoking for tobacco smokers who wanted an alternative.

Basic Vaporizers: Because serious vapers were getting more and more into vaping as an art and hobby, the need for evolving products was growing. Basic vaporizers enabled users to have larger batteries, more power, more choices, and allowed users to use and fill their own e-liquids.

Hi-Tech: More innovation lead to even more advanced personal vaporizers. These began to include variable voltage, more control options, customizable options for very personal use, and batteries that could withstand immense usage. VaporFi is loaded with great vaporizer options for every level of vaper.

Rebuildable & Mods: With the vaping population getting further involved in their devices, and knowing every aspect and ability of each spec, users began to build their own devices based on the availability of technology. This lead to solidified vape geeks needing greater technology to match their increasing drive for more powerful, advanced devices. Now, if your concept of vaping includes only e-cigs that simulate traditional cigarettes by looking and feeling the same, these RBA’s and mods will blow your mind! Again, VaporFi is leading the industry in this category, offering streamlined advanced devices, executed with the most up to the minute technology.

As the population has evolved, so have the devices. Being a tech-based industry, the growth has been immense and extremely fast, and we could not be more intrigued with the way things continue to progress forward. Where will the industry be in a year? We don’t know yet, but can’t wait to see!
