LOS ANGELES, Oct. 30, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NetworkWire – NUGL Inc. (OTC: NUGL) (the “Company”), the cannabis industry's new standard of technology, today reports it has expanded internal operations to support sales and marketing growth as well as the anticipated launch of NUGL Magazine.

The newly created sales and marketing leadership positions within NUGL include:

  • LA Regional Sales Representative;
  • National Sales Representative; and
  • Online Digital Marketing Manager.

Five new consultants have recently been added to the team as a part of this expansion. Collectively, the positions range from national advertising sales associates to internet traffic manager positions and national content contributors.

“We are growing fast, and November is the month to start monetizing our growth. We are creating a massive digital footprint with the acquisition of two magazines underway and the launch of NUGL Magazine. Our digital footprint offers something for all types of cannabis enthusiasts and the NUGL software is at the heart of all of it,” said Ryan Bartlette, CMO of NUGL.com.

NUGL has signed a binding letter of intent this month to acquire a 100% ownership interest in Nichols Publishing, which owns and operates Garden & Greenhouse and Professional Marijuana Grower, and now has launched their own culturally based magazine, NUGL Magazine (https://nuglmagazine.com/). Each magazine offers something different, allowing a wide range when it comes to reaching large audiences.

“NUGL Magazine covers how the cannabis industry effects everyday culture in our lives. Music, cooking, and even the job you go to everyday are now being influenced by cannabis. Cannabis is mainstream, and NUGL magazine is going to cover this,” said Bob Waters, V.P. of Sales for NUGL.

With the legalization of marijuana recently in Canada, technology is playing a big role in this industry, including everything from artificial intelligence in production, to software for supply chain management, to e-commerce sites for distribution and apps to help track usage. In a recent ITBusiness.ca article, it was stated, “With Bloomberg predicting $4.5 billion in sales by 2021 in the cannabis sector, there is a lot to be gained from entering the new cannabis industry, and companies across Canada are looking to cash in, from Canadian tech-giant Shopify, to local startups, these organizations are finding new ways to plant their seeds in the recreational cannabis market.”

As a software company in the cannabis space, and now having a national publication and another few in the works, NUGL is creating a media conglomerate built around a software application with potential for massive networking reach. This is an aggressive strategy that will allow its userbase to find multiple uses and content.

ABOUT NUGL MAGAZINE

Along with NUGL’s partnered publications – Professional Marijuana Grower and Garden & Greenhouse – NUGL Magazine covers the cannabis industry’s biggest news and how it effects the community at large. Our global contributors share real life stories about current cannabis issues and events. We share bios, news and advice straight from those who are actively participating in and shifting the cannabis industry. Whether it’s original compelling content or fan submissions, we seek to offer you the hippest trends, latest legislation, newest products and best of everything cannabis related!

NUGL and Nichols Publishing, an Iowa-based corporation that publishes Professional Marijuana Grower and Garden & Greenhouse, entered into a joint-venture marketing agreement 30 days ago.

“The synergies between the magazines and NUGL’s software are aligned perfectly. Previously, our userbase utilized our application to perform a function, and then they left. Now, we can give our userbase additional content and redirect NUGL traffic to the magazine and vice versa. Together, both companies will be stronger, and we plan to expand the magazines’ readership in a big way once the acquisition is complete,” said Bob Waters, V.P. of Sales at NUGL.
