  • Public Relations – online press releases, arranging interviews, etc.
  • Press – newspapers, magazines, radio, TV, online, talk shows, podcasts, etc.
  • Influencers – Youtubers, podcasters, relevant niche blogs, etc.

3] Email Marketing

  • Google and Web Monitoring – Monitor search results for keywords like “Best CBD Vape Juice” and find all marketing opportunities. We’ll start by asking the question “Where do people go when they are looking for the products that Smoke Cartel offers?” and follow all the trails to grab all opportunities.
  • Prospect List Building – We’ll scan relevant sites and produce a highly targeted list of audiences/prospects that are more likely to buy Smoke Cartel’s products. We’ll also scan forums, classifieds, local listings, CraigsList, and other niche sites to maximize opportunities.
  • Email Outreach – Leverage all opportunities found from the activities above.
  • Phone Follow-ups – We’ll call select leads especially retailers.

Initially, we will be targeting prospects from Georgia and then spread out and vice versa. Our primary target prospects are:

  • Retailers / Vape Shops
  • College Students

4] Social Media Marketing

  • Facebook Marketing – 3 posts/reposts a day
  • Instagram Marketing – 5 stories a day

Other social media activities include optimizing accounts & pages, building followers & audiences, and posting new content we create.
