MIAMI, FLORIDA--(Marketwired - Aug. 20, 2014) - Gilla Inc. ("Gilla" or the "Company") (OTCQB:GLLA) is pleased to announce the launch of Charliesclub.com ("Charlie's Club"), a subscription-based, members-only electronic cigarette ("e-cigarette") service featuring free hardware, no contracts and monthly delivery of the highest quality e-cigarettes.
"We're very excited about Charlie's Club," said Graham Simmonds, CEO of Gilla, Inc. "Easy and regular home delivery just makes sense for some products, and the success of subscription services like Dollarshaveclub.com support that. Plus, making someone buy hardware and accessories when recurring refill sales are the goal doesn't make sense. Charlie's Club is about convenience, affordability and quality, all in one membership package."
Similar to a razor blade and mobile phone business model, Charlie's Club provides Club Members with a membership package with a retail value upwards of $100 when they join, which includes two premium rechargeable e-cigarette batteries, two USB chargers and one wall charger. You'll never have to buy another e-cigarette battery while you're a member. However, Charlie's Club does not require members to sign a contract or comply with minimum terms. Members only have to sign up for one of three membership packages based on their consumption preferences and they receive free hardware for their monthly refills.
About Charlie's Club
Charlie's Club was created with tobacco smokers in mind. It is the first e-cigarette online subscription service to provide free hardware and accessories to its members. Similar to the popular razor blade and mobile phone business models, Charlie's Club subsidizes the costs of the hardware for its members, with no contracts or minimum terms. Members choose one of the three flexible membership packages delivering monthly refills based on a member's consumption preferences:
- Silver (15 cartridges/month) + shipping = $34.99/month
- Gold (25 cartridges/month) - free shipping = $49.99/month
- Platinum (50 cartridges/month) - free shipping = $69.99/month
Charlie's Club also has a dynamic Affiliate Program, offering industry-leading incentives and compensation in return for advertising and lead generation. Affiliates have access to free professional marketing materials, including banners, videos, text links, coupons and more, along with monthly payment generation and sub-affiliate tracking.
Who is Charlie and why did he create this excellent e-cigarette club? Charlie's identity has been intentionally hidden for his protection. Join the club to learn more.
