NUGL Inc. (OTC: NUGL), the cannabis industry’s new standard of technology, does more than help cannabis consumers and business owners find each other; its platform is the first software application that reaches beyond the basics and offers sophisticated, in-depth marketing and networking capabilities to the entire 420 community. The metasearch engine and online directory built into NUGL’s mobile app provides freedom of information and movement for the cannabis industry as it leaves behind the shadows and rapidly grows into a mainstream economic and cultural force.
The legal cannabis market in the U.S. is projected to reach $11 billion in consumer spending in 2018 and more than $23 billion by 2022, according to “The State of Legal Marijuana Markets, Sixth Edition,” released in June by Arcview Market Research in partnership with BDS Analytics. Even though legalization of cannabis is still underway in the U.S., the report forecasts a continuing rollout of adult-use recreational and medicinal programs throughout the country at a 22 percent compound annual growth rate over that five-year forecast period (http://ibn.fm/dxmzG).
Keeping up with that kind of growth is easier with the NUGL app, especially for consumers who might find the industry confusing and hard to decipher. The NUGL iOS and Android app brings a powerful cannabis search tool within reach of anyone, anytime, anywhere with the ease of a smartphone. The NUGL app can act like Yelp, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google and other social sites as it brings elements of the 420 community together.
“Brands are and will be the focus for us,” Ryan Bartlett, CMO of NUGL, stated in a news release (http://ibn.fm/nDUhn). “Now users can search for brand specific items and see which stores offer these items, where they are located and read or offer their own unbiased reviews.”
Two new NUGL features – profile claiming and the brand locator – give cannabis companies the power to build their own dedicated profile featuring their brands and services on the app, while consumers can enjoy discovering where they can purchase exactly what they want to buy and even leave behind a personal review for others to see. The company’s expanded NUGL platform also offers an organized marketing website for B2B applications. For startups and others that are new to the industry, NUGL’s marketing and business capabilities are an exciting advancement.
In a MarketingDaily article (http://ibn.fm/nC6FP), James Jordan, NUGL’s new vice president for strategic relations, notes that on NUGL’s site, real estate agents and accountants could hook up with fledgling cannabis companies, growing brands of strains and dispensaries can find each other and possible investors looking for budding entrepreneurs will have much to consider.
Adding new features to NUGL’s platform on a near-weekly schedule is keeping the company’s software developers busy, said Jeff Odle, NUGL’s chief technical officer, adding, “One of the features is an enhanced menu that will blow our user base away.”
NUGL’s user and profile base of listings and brands is growing fast with dispensaries, strains, doctors, lawyers, service professionals, vape shops, hydro stores and brands being added daily. NUGL has recently expanded outside of California and will continue to methodically market in each state.
