Cigar shops are many things to smokers. For those who can't smoke at home, these shops provide a place to enjoy a cigar. For those who simply want a better cigar than the ones available "over the counter" at mainstream stores, a cigar shop offers a great selection of high-quality cigars. Then there are those who are a mix of these demographics: people who enjoy smoking a well-made cigar in the company of fellow cigar smokers.

The challenge for cigar shops is marketing and advertising themselves to such a wide and varied audience. The answer is email marketing for cigar shops! With email marketing software, cigar shops can spread the word and make sure area cigar connoisseurs know where to go for the ultimate cigar experience. Here are five reasons why cigar shops and email marketing is a marriage made in heaven!

1.) Email marketing for cigar shops is the most direct method of advertising. Why buy a newspaper ad and then fret over whether or not potential customers skimmed over it? And why purchase expensive time for radio and/or television ads when the likelihood is people will just change the channel? But with email marketing, cigar shops will deliver the message straight to those who are interested in it, in the medium with which people are most comfortable.

2.) Email marketing software is inexpensive to purchase and easy to implement. The software fits into any budget and can be overseen by anyone with even a minimal amount of computer expertise. And by eschewing traditional forms of advertising, cigar shops will have more room in the budget for the important things—such as creating a better lounge or building the better cigar.
