The need for cigar lounges and cigar-friendly bars and restaurants has never been greater. The number of internet searches for “cigar lounges,” “where to smoke” and “cigars near me” has grown exponentially over the last 10 years.
Plus, with companies like Apple banning cigar-related apps from the AppStore, and social media sites Facebook preventing smoking-related ads, it's now harder than ever to promote your business to the people who want to visit your store. When you list your lounge on CigarScore.com, you're putting your business directly in front of the people who will come into your shop and buy from your humidor.
THE BENEFITS OF UPGRADING
1: We're Not Going to Ban Your Business
Apple has banned cigar-related apps from its App Store and Facebook won't let you advertise your smoking-related business on its platform. If you rely on somebody else, you're under their control.
CigarScore.com will never ban your business. We exist to SERVE the cigar-smoking community. We exist to be a resource for people looking for a place to smoke their cigars in peace and with a great group of people – whether that's at a dedicated cigar shop or somewhere that allows it.
2: Stand Out!
There are thousands of places where you CAN smoke, but only (maybe) a few hundred where you'd actually WANT to smoke.
If you've put time and effort and energy into making your location special, show it off! Our Premium and Elite listings all allow you to upload images of your storefront, your lounge, humidor, entryway, and other places around your business to show off your attention to detail. Show people what you're all about (and what you're NOT about) by adding high-quality images to your upgraded listings!
3: Take Full Advantage of Our Marketing Team
Our marketing team is constantly out there talking to new cigar lounge, humidor, and bar & restaurant owners. We're always telling people to search our site for their next great smoke.
When you have a Premium or Elite listing, you can take full advantage of our marketing team. No longer do you have to rely on your own efforts or pay an agency for expensive marketing. Our team is full of design and SEO experts, and they're up to date on all of the latest social media trends to drive traffic to your listing.
4: Right Where You NEED to Be
“Location, location, location” – we've all heard the mantra as it applies to real estate, but the truth is, the same applies online too. Having your lounge, humidor and restaurant & bar listed on CigarScore.com puts your business rights where it needs to be!
Cigar smokers around the world browse CigarScore.com to find where to smoke and to look for smoke shops near them. As the world seems to be cracking down on where we can enjoy a cigar, it's becoming increasingly important to have your cigar-friendly business listed here. And, if you upgrade to a Premium or Elite listing, you'll be right where you need to be!
