Use of Technology

We will employ SEO best practices as well as geofencing technology to ensure our customers will always know where our vending machines are located.

 

Understanding Regulations

The regulations for this industry are changing daily. We will stay on top of evolving industry regulations and practices. Marketing and advertising in the CBD space has been slowed by uncertainty over its legal status (while CBD is federally legal, its status in some individual states remains unclear).

 

Content Marketing

We have developed a smart content marketing plan. While there is widespread consumer interest in CBD, the fact remains that most people know very little about the subject. They may have concerns about CBD being intoxicating or illegal, even though neither may be true. Our content marketing strategy centered around education and awareness can help educate consumers.

 

The content strategy will include educational posting, informational webinars, and drip marketing to educate our potential customers, create a following and convert them to regular customers.

 

Our Advantages

Our knowledge and experience in the CBD marketplace will give CTC Holdings a very strong advantage. This combined with the use of technology, influencer marketing, and educational strategies will ensure that we find our place in this ever-changing marketplace.

 

Our primary focus will be in the areas below:

 

SEO implemented strategy

  • SEO will be a the forefront of all online activity. The goal will be to drive potential and returning customers to the CTC Holdings site to purchase their CBD products.

US Made, Top Quality CBD Products

  • Our Products are all made in the US with Top Grade Plants.
  • CBD Has Many Healing and Calming Qualities Without the “High Factor”
  • Our Products are medical Grade and Guaranteed for Quality

Fully Automated Order Fulfillment

  • We will utilize technology to manage the overall all order fulfillment experience. It is important that our customers know that they come first. With the proper use of this technology, we will ensure that our customers have a great pre and post-sales experience.

We will also focus on the following:

  • The types of CBD products to offer
  • Who is our target customer
  • Choosing the right supplier

 

Understanding the CBD Market

Before you can effectively market CBD, you need a grounding in the subject, as the laws governing cannabidiol have changed dramatically in recent years.

 

CBD is a byproduct of the hemp plant. Unlike cannabis, another hemp byproduct, CBD is non-intoxicating and non-psychoactive. The compound in cannabis that causes feelings of intoxication, THC, is present in much lower concentration in CBD. This means that consumers can ingest CBD products therapeutically anywhere and at any time, and feel no intoxicating effects.

 

The passage of the 2018 Farm Bill has changed this entire industry.

 

That bill legalized hemp production for the first time under federal law. It also legalized the production of CBD, as long as that CBD does not contain THC levels above a certain threshold. This, for the first time, opened the door to the production and sale of CBD products on a mass scale. And that’s precisely what happened, as large corporations entered the CBD space in force, turning the product from a niche concern to an overnight consumer phenomenon.

A Health and Wellness Craze

Consumers are always seeking natural alternatives to make them look and feel better. CBD, much like kale, quinoa, and gluten-free, has everything necessary to become a consumer wellness craze. It is readily available, fairly inexpensive, natural, and backed by some significant research attesting to its efficacy.

 

Now, CBD use is regarded by some as a natural, non-habit-forming alternative to pharmaceuticals.

 

Consumers have also come under the belief that what’s good for them is good for their pets. CBD-infused animal products are the fastest-growing segment within the pet industry, as consumers extend their passion for natural health and wellness alternatives to their pets.

 

Current alternatives

Nowadays, the Web is the place to be when you want to communicate and reach out to others. Everybody who wants to be a part of the CBD market boom has to utilize the online space most efficiently.

 

There is so much competition that to succeed in this environment CTC has to implement a well-thought-out plan.

 

When you google CDB products online there are hundreds of sites that come up. These sites are offering very similar CBD products. The customer has a lot to choose from.

 

Our advantages

Our knowledge and experience in the CBD marketplace will give CTC Holdings a very strong advantage. This combined with the use of technology, influencer marketing, and educational strategies will ensure that we find our place in this ever-changing marketplace.

 

The business model and strategy for CTC has been well defined. The pillars of this strategy are listed below.

CBD Marketing

Everywhere you look online, whether it is in the form of a CBD-focused advert that grasps your attention on Facebook, a search engine optimized CBD advertising campaign that points to an online store via Google, the surge in CBD marketing is hard to ignore.

 

Finding new customers

According to a study conducted by High Yield Insights, approximately 40% of U.S. consumers aged 21 and above claim that they would consider trying CBD. This figure will grow and so, finding new customers by tapping into the power of CBD marketing will be essential to our success.

 

Differentiating our brand

The CBD space is growing and more companies being established on a daily basis. We will focus on the differentiation of our brand from the rest. We will provide our audience with constant education.

 

Retaining customers

CBD marketing can help us attract recurring customers. We will develop and implement different types of campaigns and incentive programs to keep our customers coming back.

 

Great customer experience

Our website will utilize the latest technology to ensure a great customer experience. We recognize that with many sites to choose from, the customer engagement experience will be the most important factor in retaining customers.

Use of Proceeds
The allocation of the use of proceeds among the categories of anticipated expenditures represents management’s best estimates based on the current status of the Company’s proposed operations, plans, investment objectives, capital requirements, and financial conditions. Future events, including changes in economic or competitive conditions of our business plan or the completion of less than the total Offering, may cause the Company to modify the above-described allocation of proceeds. The Company’s use of proceeds may vary significantly in the event any of the Company’s assumptions prove inaccurate. We will retain broad discretion in the allocation of the net proceeds from this Offering, reserve the right to change the allocation of net proceeds from the Offering as unanticipated events or opportunities arise and could utilize the proceeds in ways that do not necessarily improve our results of operations or enhance the value of our Common Stock. Additionally, the Company may from time to time need to raise more capital to address future needs that we may not have anticipated as of the date of this Offering Circular.
Special Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements
This offering contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws. We caution investors that any forward-looking statements presented in this offering, or which management may make orally or in writing from time to time, are based on the Company’s beliefs and assumptions made by, and information currently available to, the Company. When used, the words “anticipate,” “believe,” “expect,” “intend,” “may,” “might,” “plan,” “estimate,” “project,” “should,” “will,” “would,” “result” and similar expressions, which do not relate solely to historical matters, are intended to identify forward-looking statements. Such statements are subject to risks, uncertainties and assumptions and are not guarantees of future performance, which may be affected by known and unknown risks, trends, uncertainties and factors that are beyond the Company’s control. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary materially from those anticipated, estimated or projected. While forward-looking statements reflect the Company’s good faith belief when made, they are not guarantees of future performance. The Company expressly disclaims any responsibility to update forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by law.

Moreover, we operate in a very competitive and rapidly changing environment, and new risks emerge from time to time.
