When giving products away for free, please do concern to get their contact (generally an email) in return for the free products.

By doing this, you are not just to make yourself known, but also to build your lists of costumers so that you can sell them more next time.

Spread products as widely as possible

When you give products away for nothing, you should really give it away as widely as possible.

Despite only distributing away from your blog, you can also permit your visitors to do the same thing from their blog as well.

It can even better, you can give permissions to everyone who have interest to distribute your products. But remember you still hold your rights to your product, all you give away is the reprint rights.

Depends on your products form, but in term of an ebook, this could be highly profitable methods to recycle unsold products. It will make it easy for everyone to take your material, absorb the value and do the same to their communities with your name attached as the creator.

When making freebies, don’t make mistake of giving incomplete feature for a products. At some points you may tease your costumers but you do not build their trust.

when give away a free products, you need to guarantee that the sample is at the same “feature” as the freebies. Here are some instances ; when you are offering an ebooks, a teasing full chapter is a good sample, when you are promoting a milk, allow costumers to have a glass of it for free, or more. It could be in many ways you can do it. But the best ways to perform this method should be a free trial in a certain time of use.
