Are Freebies Really Free?

wholesale merchandise - freebiesAre Freebies really free? Well, on one side, yes, on the other, no. There are a good number of people who are still very skeptical when the someone mention the word "freebies". On the other hand there are others that believe in freebies and will even take time to hunt for them. So there is a debate as to whether the free stuff given by companies is really free.


If we take time to consider why companies give free things or even organize free events, we may find some important clue as to whether the goods they claim to be free are indeed free. The major reason why there is usually free stuff from different companies is to market the products.



To popularize new products, a company may resolve to give small quantities of the products to customers for trial. Such free products are called free samples. They are given with the hope that once they are used the customers will get to like them thus make further purchases. These products are totally free and are solely given for the purpose of promoting the given product. They do not have strings attached.
