Hey Mike - I've heard similar efforts previously, and I know there is a similar website out there that has been promoting through a few sites over the past couple of months - CigarFly. I'm intrigued, though.
Couple of questions:Is there a demo? And how much is the cost? I'd be hesitant to spend money on a service without "knowing" that the service is "good" or something that would "work" for me. CigarFly, for example, is free, but I didn't love the results the first time I tested it so I definitely wouldn't pay for it, but if it worked...maybe.
Good luck. I'll be eager to see how this plays out. I'd be concerned that there are so few potential customers that making this a pay-for-service isn't the best business model, but I'm interested in seeing what comes of it. I'll be watching.
Thanks for your feedback.
I just checked out Cigarfly and while it is an interesting approach it seems you have to buy and 'trust' they'll send you a pack of cigars you'll like.
The difference with Cigar Sense is that you enter the profile and characteristics of cigars you like and they recommend cigars to try. No retail so you're paying the basic rate ($5/month) to avoid spending coin on cigars you might not like and hopefully finding cigars you love. If you find you don't have to pitch one cigar a month that wasn't to your taste, I'd say it's worth that.
There is a fair bit of detailed information, sample reviews and some videos that walk through the concept.
You're right - I just went to CigarFly, and they've changed the model.
When it first started, they would ask you the basic flavor profile questions, and then they would tell you 5 cigars that fit your profile and you could buy that sampler. Their new model is not one I prefer! :O
Long time no see Franca!!!
