The Cannabis Industry is BOOMING! There are literally billions of dollars circulating the globe in relation to legal marijuana. Unfortunately, not everyone lives in a ‘legal state’ meaning they can only sit by and watch other people get rich! Well, this is what they believe. I’m here to tell you that there are ways you can start making money on legal cannabis today, even if you live in a prohibition state.
As the cannabis industry continues to grow, there are many non-cannabis positions required to keep an operation afloat. In the following article, I’m going to be explaining about some of the ‘most needed jobs’ within the cannabis industry.
One thing that any business needs regardless of what it is, is Marketing! Cannabis faces unique problems with marketing as businesses aren’t permitted to utilize the same techniques that other industries are allowed to use.
For instance, if you were to run an ad on Facebook that is promoting cannabis, odds are that you’ll get your ads account banned. This is because Facebook has a strict policy in place that prohibits people to promote “vices” including tobacco products, drugs and even alcohol.
For a start up company, this means that generating brand awareness becomes difficult. So how can you capitalize on the advertisement restrictions of the cannabis industry? You can become a promoter or a marketer.
To do this you’ll need to start working on creating “niche specific followers” on your social media accounts. If you have 100.000 stoner followers on Instagram, Facebook or even Twitter, then you have a substantial captivate market to offer “weed companies” advertisement options.
It’s important to note that this isn’t “technically allowed” by most social media platforms as they would want people to spend their ad money on the platform itself, however understanding that these official platforms do not allow this, you have a golden opportunity to make it happen.
‘Shout out’ marketing essentially boils down to you, “sharing or retweeting” a post by a brand and charging for it. Some people charge up to $100 per shout out. Obviously the bigger your following, the higher you can charge per shout out. Similarly, if you have a large email list, you can also be charging per promotion. The amount you charge is entirely up to you.
