How much thought have you put into choosing the vaporizer that will represent your brand? Do you know the manufacturers’ reputation? Have you read online reviews or spoken with LinkedIn connections who are familiar with their product? Do they offer anything that would set your brand apart from the guys down the street?
If your answer to any one of those questions is no – then you need to slow things down, just a little.
The manufacturer you choose to produce your vaporizers and cartridges is much more important than you might think. With the number of people who are moving to vapes to conveniently and discretely medicate or just generally consume cannabis, offering the best vape experience around can put your brand miles ahead of the competition.
It might sound trivial – but this is something you want to get right the first time. The expense of going back to the drawing board on this one could be far more costly than you think.
So, why should you be so worried about which vape brand you go with? They all provide the same basic functions, right? Pen or battery style, often with a button you press while inhaling and then release before exhaling. What’s the real difference between one brand or manufacturer to the next?
You’d be surprised.
The manufacturer you choose could affect many different things including:
You might think that vapes aren’t your main product focus, so it’s okay to skimp a little on this end of your business. But does a successful brand like Apple or Samsung cut back on their accessories, even though they aren’t their main product? Thinking that way will cost you in the long run in many ways – but the two most concerning for any business owner are your brand representation and revenue.
Everything your business sells is an extension of your brand, and a representation of what customers should expect from your company. If you drop the ball, even in one seemingly insignificant area, it could cost you hundreds, if not thousands of customers.
In this case, we’re talking about vapes – and you might not think there’s a huge difference from one brand to the next but that’s not the case. You should never go with a cheap product in hopes of “getting by” in that one aspect of your business.
A cheap or poorly manufactured vape could have a variety of problems including:
You only sell the finest strains of cannabis, grown with minimal or better yet, organic pesticides, and it’s passed all the tests. So, why sell top-tier cannabis and cannabis oils, without offering a top-tier vaping solution as well?
Not only will a shotty product leave you with poor brand representation, but it will negatively impact your bottom line in numerous ways.
Something you should keep in mind in all business is that people are more likely to tell others about a bad experience than a good one. So, even if you have ten customers and only one is upset – that one guy who is upset is more likely to tell everyone he knows about his bad experience.
However, those happy customers will probably only tell a small handful of friends or coworkers about their enjoyable experiences. It’s an unfortunate fact, but negative word of mouth just travels faster.
If someone buys a vape from your shop and then the pen battery dies a week later, or the disposable leaks all over their purse or backpack, or anything like that – that person is more likely to tell people not to buy that product.
This means two things – negative word-of-mouth advertising and shelves stocked full of a product that you’ll never get rid of. Neither is a scenario you want your business to be in.
Choosing a poor-quality vaporizer to sell with your brand name behind it is a poor decision overall. It might seem like you’re choosing a less expensive option to save costs – but it could also end up costing you two or three times as much (or even more) when you can’t sell the product you have and need to invest in a new one to keep sales moving.
On the other hand, if you have an average-performing vape, they aren’t likely to send anyone out of their way to your store. So, even though going the middle ground with a mid-tier vaporizer will likely be enough to get you through, it’s not going to propel your brand forward the way a top-of-the-line vape has the potential to do.
So, what should you look for in a vaporizer manufacturer to make sure that you don’t see the lost revenue and negative brand representation problems we discussed above?
There are many things you should take into consideration when choosing a vape line to represent your brand – but a few things are more important than others. To keep it simple, we’ve broken it down into the four most important categories – the quality of materials, technology and innovation, user-friendliness, and custom branding options. Each of these things will play a major role in choosing the best vaporizers for your cannabis business.
Not all vaporizers are made equal – no matter how similar they may look at first glance. Everything from the heating element to the charging port can be made of a variety of materials or styles that will affect the overall performance of the vaporizer. Some materials are longer lasting, and some are chosen for increased vapor quality. Investing in a vape that uses quality materials will show that your brand takes itself seriously and wants to provide value with its products.
Next to choosing a vape that uses high-quality materials, you’ll want one that can adapt to the times. Vaporizers, like all technology, are rapidly changing and improving, and you don’t want to be selling a brand that is always one step behind in the tech game. Rather, you want one that is ahead of the curve, pioneering the way in advances that improve vaporizers for both sellers and consumers.
The last thing you want is your customers bringing their vaporizers back in or calling your customer service line day and night trying to figure out how it works. User-friendliness is one of the absolute most important factors when choosing a vaporizer line to use for your brand. It may look epic – but does it perform epically, with little in the way of instruction? If the answer is no, you may want to look at a different product.
If a vaporizer brand has the above three qualities, then the last thing you should consider is whether there is a branding opportunity. Some vaporizer lines will sell their product in your store, but it’s got to be under their name. On the other hand, some lines will allow you to fully customize your vaporizers, down to your brand’s logo on the vape itself. If you’ve invested in a quality manufacturer, this is an excellent way to market your brand with your products.
