Top Tips for New Freebie Fans
If something sounds way too good to be
true, you already know it likely is.
You want to ensure that the freebie you are
applying for sounds authentic. Don't jump into a freebie that sounds
unrealistic. Also, you want to read the terms and conditions thoroughly instead
of skipping them to be certain you know what you're getting into.
Don't Expect Too Much
The truth is, you aren't going to find a
lot of full-sized free stuff. These are incredibly
rare. Rather, you will find a lot of smaller trial-sized freebies. After all,
these companies aren't giving goodies out of the bottom of their heart. They
are doing so to win over customers. They want you to sample their product to
make it more likely that you'll make a future purchase. You shouldn't expect to
get a freebie for every application you send in either.
You Won't Get It If You Don't Ask
Always try to write some letters to
companies or even send out emails for products you might be interested in.
Asking for samples is a good idea. After all, you will never get what you don't
ask for. A lot of people have managed to score huge boxes of free goodies by
simply asking. You will find a lot of companies willing to send out free
products to those that are interested in them and even replacement freebies for
products that didn't live up to expectations.
Don't Feel Guilty
The last thing you want to do is find
yourself feeling guilty for scoring some free products from a corporation.
Contrary to what you may believe, these companies are losing millions because
they are giving away free products. They might not be losing money at all. They
are using it as a marketing strategy. Therefore, it's something they would be
spending on marketing anyways. They are looking to acquire new customers. If
you get a product you love, you're going to be more likely to buy it again.
Setup a New Email
When you are going to be applying for a
bunch of freebies, don't use your primary email address. Unless you are looking
for hundreds of spam messages and having your email address out there, it's
best to signup for a new email that you use exclusively for signing up for
freebies. You can also check out this infographic.
