    I like to see a wide variety of manufacturers as well as options of quantity such as singles, 5 or ten packs, as well as box quantity.


  • USA2ndAmendment

    I like to see a website that has really good pictures of the product, of each of the sizes, not just one in general. Also a really good description of what to expect, the blend, ect. I know the look doesn’t have anything to do with the quality of the cigar, but if the marketing and promotional look/items on the website are not appealing at first sight, then it turns me away. You only get 1 chance to make a first impression. I shared of facebook.

  • skalls

    I want to seebthe following:

    pictures of the box
    available sizes
    pictures of each size
    what strength the cigars are
    recommended pairings if available (beer, scotch, and so on)

  • quackaddict94

    For me I like to see a lot of variety shown on the site. By that I mean I like to see all of the options be it size, strength, and type (Torpedo, etc.)
    If the cigar has been rated by a magazine such as Aficionado, then I don’t mind seeing that rating. In general if the site is easy to navigate, has a search bar, and gives a good, non salesman description of the cigars then I am good to go.

  • abu1555

    I like to see more information about the companies, the people involved in creating the blends photos of the cigars, that their site is user friendly, information of where to get them, did I mention information? This for what the web was created, granted is a great sales tool but if the information is weak so will be the sales.

  • guarnacciad

    I would like to see information on the flavor profiles of the cigars and a bio on how the company originated. I shared this on facebook. I also like a list of what retailers have the cigars available.

  • Boucher207

    All i really need to see in a website is the cigar line up and the price, im a big fan of just buying one and trying it.

    Large high resolution photos, ease of navigation, clear concise descriptions of product.

  • DavidKIT

    The only things I look for in a website are a full description and photo of their lines (sizes included) along with a list of online retailers that carry your line (if you’re a boutique not commonly available). Make it easy for me to find and buy your cigar!!

    One would desire a website to be easy to navigate. There should be clear and concise product information and description along with pricing. And company information should be available as well. Lastly up to date information such as vendors would really be helpful for the consumer to. I hate going to a website that is not up to date.

    Thanks! Shared link on facebook

  • regninnep12

    the first thing that I need is high quality pictures. I like the Davidoff website because of the very good accessibility and pictures. All the cigars should be organized in a way that is easy to search. A single price and a box price is also very important. A way to share by social networking is very important as well.

    As someone who works on web design daily, I could write a page on how much I dislike many websites, not just cigar ones, but here’s my things:

    -Keep it simple, you don’t need complex graphics everywhere, they can be distracting
    -Don’t be afraid of white space. Dear god why do cigar manufacturers need to fill every part of their web page with random pictures and advertising crap.
    -Update the website, if you haven’t gone on it every day, you don’t know when something has gone wrong
    -Give information about the cigars, all of the specs, where to buy it, pictures, an “about us” section, contact section, etc.

    Like others have said, keep it simple. No menu bars the size of a #2 pencil lead, no popups, so crazy loud sounds that go “Mwuh-ha-ha-ha” clearly letting your boss know your checking out cigar sites at work again. Please add lots of info and sharp pics (I like to see a little tooth on my cigars), where to buy, and realistic strength and flavor characteristics. I also like to learn something when I go to cigar sites, like the hammer story behind Padron. Maybe add some background info on the business, or on how some of the blends were decided. My post sounds like a broken record of everybody else’s post, but really that’s what I’d like to see. Tweeted.

    nice website loads quick its clear has nice picks no trash thanks for a clean site

  • Joseph Szeremet

    I like to see a easy to navigate site, that is loaded with info about the cigars, growing regions, and company philosophy. A good site shows a companies enthusiasm about there products, which make me enthusiastic to try there cigars. Tweeted

  • juarez454

    Easy to navigate is most important. but I am a new smoker so something that shows you the flavors to expect and cigars that are similar would be awesome.

  • shermanator20

    What I would like to see in a website is a clean crisp layout on the home page with easy to navigate pages. If they are selling something I would like to see a picture a clear price and description, maybe a place for user reviews so i can get an idea of what people thought. The most important thing is a place to post questions or have a customer support area so if I don’t under stand something or need clarification on something I can get help.
