Vape has never been more popular! Which is great news for the amount of customers you can now target, but bad news considering all the new competitors cropping up online.
The UK Vaping Industry Association (UKVIA) says there are around 2,000 UK vaping outlets on the high street – so you can imagine just how saturated the market is online.
To make a good impression, you need to set yourself above and beyond the competition. Selling vape products online isn’t as simple and easy as setting up an online shoe shop – it has its own unique set of challenges to overcome. With heavy advertising restrictions and legal boundaries to follow, you can’t hire a run-of-the-mill digital agency.
If you want to build a successful vape store online, you need someone that knows the industry.
You need someone that knows where to advertise, how to speak to your customers and has a secure, solid payment gateway option in place.
Specialising in vape web design and digital marketing for vape products, we’ve experienced first-hand the problems faced by companies trying to make their name in the industry. Vape producers, distributors and retailers are still fighting against a host of problems selling online, including:
- Payment gateways – none of the established online payment methods will accept vape companies as clients
- Public perception – many companies do not want to be associated with the industry, which limits potential partnerships and exposure
- Online advertising – Google, Facebook and Instagram all refuse to advertise anything to do with the vape industry
But don’t worry! Here at dijitul, we have overcome these issues.
We have helped many vape companies, just like you, tap into the lucrative world of selling vape products online
