I have been vaping for a couple years now.... I love me E-Cigs!! I am seriously considering starting an E-Cig business but not sure how to go about doing it. I was wondering if there is anyone that has some pointers. I live in Southern California in the Inland Empire. Is the market flooded? I'm not looking to get rich, just love the product and want to help other people to see that they can still smoke just a little healthier.

Thanks,
Dana

just because i hate a couple of laws doesnt mean i hate my country. wall-mart....a friend talked me into joining him because the money was good, only thing is it's salary. but im getting tired of it after a 3 years. i hate the way they treat the newer associates and part-time people who work under me.

Let's see if he reveals this later, but I am going to say the Evil MalWart.

I like WalMart, but I don't know if I would want to work for them. I had a friend who was working for them when Sam Walton died, and it wasn't long after that he went to Dayton. Didn't like the direction the new management was going.

ya you got it, its wally world. basically you can sell e cigarettes for a certain company and get a check at the end of the month (short version). i know greensmoke does it and many other companys. or you can look up a manufacturer in China and buy wholesale, carve a market for yourself either locally or on the web....and pull a profit. there just might be a lil red tape or problems due to the FDA if you get shipments sent to you, i dont know to much about it. but thats what i know about doing a "start-up".

Affiliate marketing is the redheaded stepchild of web based retail businesses. A necessary evil. I'd look into it if your going to try to make a go of it.

There are companies where you set up your name and your products, and when people order they are ordering from the parent company in China. You get a royalty check based on the sales your web site did. That's the easy way.

The other way is to do your own ordering from a supplier or manufacturer in China, have the goods shipped to you, and then you sell from your inventory. As yet I don't think there are any US manufacturers; some say "assembled" in USA, meaning they get the parts from China and make up kits.

You can also get parts from the Chinese manufacturers with your own name and logo, etc on the parts you order; I would imagine this increases your cost, and those in the know will realize they're getting a rebranded Joye or Sailebo.

I started a website and was in the works to get a small e-cig business up and running in Portland, before I moved down to San Diego (about a year ago). I just wasn't able to come up with the capitol to get everything set up.

I'd love to lend any support I can. Let me know.

(PMs work best)

If anybody is still looking for a partner in e-cig business, let me know. I have a website selling electronic cigarettes, parts, juice, accessories. I also sell in small shows and event where I can get my hands into but it's hard to do so alone. I have a reliable supplier with a wholesale account with them allowing me to make small or large orders for a really good price.

Let me know!
