The future of the industry

posted Jan 19, 2012 02:28:38 by ZacharyJ.Ganiszewski
One thing I find incredibly fascinating about electronic cigarettes as a product right now is that we are in "the golden age." Anyone with some start-up capital can call a factory in china an start a website. There are hundreds of Ecig companies out there, an most of them are garbage. There are almost no industry standards for anything really. An I predict one day most of these companies are going to go under, an what we will be left with will become the major players. Anyone have any thoughts on this?

I agree that with easy access to a customer base via the internet any one can do business. Vapedudes has an option to sell on your own website. I am definitely particular about where I get my juice. I've found a couple I like and am likely to stick with them. Checking out juices manufactured in the US is an important thing to me. See below... People will always look for the best deals and newest companies as consumers I believe we tend to get bored. I think only with regulations many companies will have to change product or leave. Otherwise, we are just too curious. Hopefully information via the internet will educate, but I see many who will try something new based on 1 blurb. (Sure you can relate Zach lol.) It's just too tempting. Some companies rely on one time customers from word spreading. The good companies do regular business with loyal customers.

I just hope I never have to do biz with Philip Morris again. :)

I agree with what you said about liquid. God knows whats in the liquid that comes from china. An even companies that have American made liquid still get some of the ingredients from china. An the industry is evolving everyday. It was just 2 or 3 years ago that an "ecig" meant a mini, like blu or green smoke. But now, for the most part, 510's are the popular units. In 3 more years everything will be completely different. I feel a lot of factors are going to come into play. For example, the company name. A name like volcano or halo, companies with catchy names will have a better chance of sticking around. I know that this has nothing to do with there product or quality, but a company like "Never light again" or "Smoke to live" have terrible names and the fact is this is a business. If you can't market and brand yourself well, the your SOL.
