FAQ

Effective digital marketing campaigns lie at the core of any modern business’ road to success. The very same targeted marketing campaigns and SEO strategies that work for any other small business would bring your cannabis company to the top of the search engine results pages and cause customers to pour in — but there is a twist.

Companies within the cannabis niche, from those selling CBD oil to dispensaries, are unique. It is no surprise that their marketing needs are, too. To craft an effective cannabis business marketing plan, you will need the help of a cannabis digital marketing agency that understands the legalities associated with your field as well as the restrictions social media platforms place on the marketing of cannabis products.

Marketing your cannabis products on major social media platforms is not impossible, but getting tangible results fast does require the expertise of digital marketing experts who are deeply familiar with the cannabis industry. Skilled cannabis marketing makes use of all available avenues to showcase your products, because when you connect with potential customers, your cannabis products will sell themselves.

The legality of advertising cannabis and cannabis-based products depends on your jurisdiction. In the United States, some states that have legalized the consumption of cannabis for medical or recreational purposes place no special restrictions on advertising cannabis, while others allow advertising with limitations. This generally means that no misleading claims about the health benefits of cannabis may be made, and frequently, advertisers must make sure that their adverts are not targeted at minors — or placed where minors would be likely to see them. It is always crucial to check your local laws before you embark on a cannabis marketing campaign.

Due to the fact that the internet is accessible globally and cannabis is still banned on the federal level in the US, as well as in numerous other countries, however, popular social media platforms make marketing for cannabis companies difficult. CBD products are generally easier to advertise, as regulations surrounding these low-THC products differ.

Dispensaries conducting legal business within their jurisdictions will, of course, want to reach as many potential customers as possible. While cannabis industry marketing regulations vary, there are always ways to effectively market your cannabis dispensary. Creative cannabis dispensary marketing plans have made use of means such as billboards, sponsored endorsements, podcasts, drip campaigns, and organic marketing like blogging and answering customers’ questions on social media.

Companies selling cannabis and cannabis-based products can have great success with cannabis industry marketing on websites dedicated to this niche — with the added advantage that your advertising is highly-targeted by default. CBD companies hoping to increase their sales may be able to advertise on mainstream platforms, as well, as long as they find ways to do so without violating those platform’s policies.

Your cannabis marketing strategy does not depend only on direct advertisements, however. Ultimately, any step you take that boosts your sales can and should be considered a part of your approach to advertising. Branding campaigns raise your business profile, causing customers to flock to your cannabis-products store. In addition, your own website offers a strong opportunity for cannabis branding and marketing when you have a strong approach to SEO.

Cannabis companies have the opportunity to advertise on industry platforms, as well as being able to run ads on mainstream platforms with the help of creative, out-of-the-box, marketing strategies that ensure terms of service are not being violated. Having a cannabis marketing specialist on your side is guaranteed to help your cannabis company reach new highs.

Each jurisdiction in which medical or recreational cannabis use has been legalized has its own cannabis marketing regulations, which may or may not also pertain to CBD-only products. In jurisdictions where the marketing of cannabis has been restricted, the regulations typically specify that:

  • Cannabis marketing campaigns may not make misleading or unproven claims regarding the health benefits of cannabis consumption.
  • Cannabis marketing campaigns cannot promote the excessive use of this substance.
  • Marketing for cannabis is not allowed to be targeted at minors. Marketing materials may not depict minors, and in some jurisdictions, cannabis advertisements may not be placed in locations frequented by a high percentage of minors.
  • Cannabis cannot be marketed on federally-regulated platforms such as TV and radio. Note that mailing print advertisement materials is also restricted for this reason, as these would be disseminated via the federally-regulated US postal service.
  • In some jurisdictions, digital cannabis marketing is also prohibited, on the basis that it could target consumers from out of state.

In addition to legal regulations, which are highly variable, social media platforms such as Google, Instagram, and Facebook each have their own cannabis marketing guidelines, necessitating creativity to be able to engage in the cannabis branding social media marketing that will make your business thrive. Digital cannabis marketing campaigns are, however, within the reach of every cannabis company with the help of SEO specialists who are deeply familiar with this niche.

Customer-focused solutions that are allowing cannabis companies and dispensaries to increase their sales rapidly include drive-through services, home deliveries, and a focus on the edibles and CBD products that are so popular. To increase their customer base, the smartest cannabis companies are partnering with cannabis marketing agencies to raise their profiles on Tik Tok, connecting with influencers, and even hosting real-time online cannabis events to answer customers’ burning questions. These emerging cannabis marketing trends all require a rock-solid SEO foundation in combination with a winning strategy that stays on the right side of platforms’ cannabis policies.
