Development & Market Testing

At BLINC, product concept testing is structured around four components: product screenings, product testing, business analysis and market testing. Our multidisciplinary team examines your product from every angle, ensuring objective and thorough analysis. We measure the perceived visual, conceptual, and functional appeal of your product and evaluate how well the product is likely to fare compared to both competitors and benchmark products. Our technology expertise allows our teams to quickly build and test the most inspiring product designs through a series of iterative prototypes, before testing small batches with actual retailers.

Scaling Channel Development

Once we nail down the future vision of your product and achieve market validation, we use our distribution networks and relationships to scale your business to the next level. Our approach to sales encompasses how and to whom companies sell their vape and cannabis products, the channels they use, and the back-office operations to support these efforts. BLINC partners with the world’s leading distributors of premium brands in the burgeoning head shop, smoke shop, and dispensary channels. Together with our distribution partners, we have honed capabilities in go-to-market strategy, order fulfillment, effective inventory management, and merchandising expertise to optimize return on your sales investments.
