Where Do Freebies Come From?
In case you do not already know, free sampling has become very popular in recent years. This grossly due to the increased usage of the Internet. The world wide web has made finding free online samples, such as free cosmetic samples or pet food samples, much easier.
Have you ever wondered where all of these freebies come from and why there is no catch? It is true that you can easily sign up to get samples of various products in mere seconds and it won’t cost you a penny. Absolutely free, no hidden fees, no shipping costs, heck they won’t even ask you to sign up for anything. It almost seems unreal. Why would a company do something like that.
It seems like a waste of money for them, at least from our point of view. I assure you that if companies were losing money giving things like free cosmetics away, that it would no longer be going on. The fact that free samples are alive and well proves that there is something to be gained. That the manufacturer is getting some bang for their buck.
One of the benefits that can be gained by giving away free samples of your new products is that you are essentially paying a very low price for some very effective advertising. Think about the word of mouth. Think about a product that no has heard of being spread all over the net. I a matter of days you have gone from no knowing about your new warez to the entire web being privy.
Another benefit to sampling is that in order to get the freebie, a person will have to fill out a form on your site. When website and blog owners write about the sample, they will more than likely link to the offer. This could mean thousands of sites linking directly to yours. This will not only make your own site stronger but also drive a large amount of traffic to it. These benefits are not temporary and will last long after the sample has been forgotten about.
As you can surely see, free samples benefit all parties involved and not just the consumer.
