New Electronic Cigarette Brand Targets Women Smokers
Vaping Vamps launches the e cig industry's only 'Ready to Quit Kit'.
MINNEAPOLIS, MN, December 11, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Is the world ready for another electronic cigarette brand? Vaping Vamps owner and 'lead vamp' Maria Verven thinks so.
Vaping Vamps is the first independent electronic cigarette brand to specifically target women. The rationale behind targeting women with a new e-cigarette company is simple: women buy more products online than men in most purchase categories, according to Nielsen reports.
"When I went online to look for an e-cig starter kit for my daughter to help her quit smoking, I found a confusing array of electronic cigarette brands, none of which appealed to me," Verven said. "I wanted to create a brand that women would really connect with."
Vaping Vamps partnered with Dress for Success, a non-profit organization that helps women get back on their feet, and is donating 5 percent of all profits. "We want women to feel good about their purchase from Vaping Vamps not just because we offer the best e cigs at the best prices, but because our heart is in the right place," Verven said. "The mission of Dress for Success is consistent with our mission: to help women improve their lives," Verven said.
Electronic cigarettes are in direct competition with the $2.4 billion NRT market (nicotine replacement therapy), such as nicotine gum and nicotine patches. Recent studies have shown that electronic cigarettes are effective in helping smokers quit or reduce their smoking: in a major study with 3,587 participants, 96 percent said the e cigarette helped them to quit smoking. Yet the NRT methods approved by the FDA are "simply not helpful to the majority of those who try them," according to Drs. Whelan and Ross of the American Council on Science and Health (ACSH).
Vaping Vamps is the first electronic cigarette brand globally to offer a "Ready to Quit Kit." This e-cig starter kit includes two batteries and five cartomizers - cartridges filled with decreasing levels of nicotine for people who want to use the e cigarette as a tool to quit smoking altogether.
As more research on the effectiveness of electronic cigarettes in helping people to quit smoking comes to light, and in the face of increasing restrictions on tobacco consumption in developed markets, the electronic cigarette market is expected to grow. Euromonitor International predicts that by 2050, non-tobacco cigarettes (including e cigarettes) will be worth 4 percent of the value of total tobacco - including cigarettes and other tobacco products.
In a letter written to the FDA urging them to reconsider their stance on electronic cigarettes, Drs. Whelan and Ross of ACSH state, "The truth is, e cigarettes have the potential to help the 20 percent of Americans who remain addicted to smoking".
"I know we're just one of many electronic cigarette brands out there," Verven said. "But Vaping Vamps offers something unique in the marketplace, and early feedback from my customers and e cigarette reviewers such as Vapor Electronic Cigarettes has been nothing short of glowing."
Consumers can purchase e-cig starter kits, the 'Ready to Quit Kit' and the 'Vampstick' (a no nicotine electronic cigarette) at the Vaping Vamps website, where they get free shipping on all products. Electronic cigarette reviewers and sites that promote tools to help women quit smoking are invited to become affiliates.
Vaping Vamps is the first independent electronic cigarette brand specifically targeting women. Vaping Vamps has developed the e cigarette industry's first and only 'Ready to Quit Kit' to help women quit smoking. Five percent of all profits are donated to Dress for Success.
