    I have unlimited supply of e-cigs, e-liquid, hybrids, etc. The manufacturer is in china but we will have a huge inventory available here in the US in 1-2 weeks. The idea is to generate repeated customers that will buy e-liquid.

    I have never advertise this kind of product before but we know there's still a huge demand for it. We have some ideas how to start but I would like to hear how the smart guys at BHW are advertising this. If your ideas are good and you are in the US will send you a free sample of any of our products.

    * Sorry if this was posted in the wrong section but I couldn't any appropriate section to do it.

    Just as a note, you can create a lot of interest for your "brand" through an account on Instagram. There is a huge community of vapers coming together and sharing their products and reviews. Just hashtag things like #vape #vapeporn #vapure ecig #eliquid etc. and start building a community. Post of pics and related material. Instagram actually works pretty well for building up interest in a product and as an ecig user myself I love seeing new products and flavors.

    I was going to suggest using Pinterest doing exactly what ThatBeerGuy said but also driving traffic to your money pages while at the same time using Pinterest as a storefront to monetize your products. Check shopinterest.co for an example, but definitely have your own integrated e-commerce solutions ready to go. To generate repeat customers, a nicely design procurement system which allows a "reminder to refill" or offers customers a "subscribe and save" option like on Amazon can prove helpful.

    Leading people to a squeeze page to capture email will most definitely build your list. Perhaps you can make a small free product offering with their 1st purchase to gain customer loyalty. Just make sure you use a double opt-in verification for email sign-ups to avoid getting your domain(s) blacklisted.

    Create a bunch of short 1-minute videos demonstrating products, discussing health benefits, and call yourself a life-saver while you're at it ;) At the end of the day, all types of pages and social media accounts might help. In order to find out where to best spend your time and efforts - you have to poke and prod to see what moves units.

    BTW, I am not; nor have I ever marketed this product. Just my 2 cents based on your OP. Good luck!

    Set it up as a monthly membership club. Been thinking about doing something similar as well. I'm not to keen to go the china route for the liquids thou. At least from my sources i can never be sure what crap they put in it.
