There are lots of different ways to market your legal cannabis business.

Some states that permit legal cannabis sales don’t allow for any advertising, and others place restrictions on where, when or how you can advertise. ┬á And while it’s possible that you might not be able to actively advertise your dispensary or delivery service using more traditional means, hosting your own loyalty program or digital membership card is not usually considered advertising per se.*

#MobileFirst marketing is a simple concept – all advertising and marketing and customer awareness is built with the idea that most people will see your ads and marketing on mobile devices; well more than half of all online time is spent on mobile today, with desktop a rapidly dwindling second place.┬á
