How much free stuff should I give out to promote my product?

I just wish I knew how much free goods I would have to give out in order to promote my products.

Jacqui Rosshandler

Well, in my experience, giving out free goods would be a good ideas if

  1. You actually have enough inventory to still make reasonable profit
  2. You actually get something in return of the free goods given. quid pro quo kind of agreement. I’ve given free goods before for
    1. Brand exposure
    2. Increase numbers of product reviews and sale ranking ( for example, in most marketplace, if your product have high sale volume and good review, you’ll be ranked quite high in the search ranking – I’ve given free (price set to nearly $0 with free shipping or discount shipping – in order to raise the sale volume and reviews. Just make sure you get the receiver agreement before hand.
    3. Free goods can also be given to your family members, neighbors, friends, & acquaintance. Just make sure they claim it through the marketplace. 2-in-1 benefit, you improve your marketplace ranking and you’ve made those whom received the item a reason to smile for the day.
  3. Make sure the financial aspect and planning are in place, don’t just blindly gave away your merchandise, you won’t be a merchant for long if you do that.

If you’re interested in setting up business online, there’s a few marketplace which I would recommend:
