With so many new products constantly hitting the market, it’s hard to keep up and know which products are better than what you are currently using or what is the absolute best, without breaking the bank. The good news for your wallet (and your curiosity) is that there are ways to try new products for free or at a low cost.
As the old adage goes, "We have not because we ask not," and much of the secret to securing sample or trial products for nothing or virtually nothing is all about the ask! Knowing who to ask can be the difference between spending hundreds of dollars to try out new products or getting them on the cheap.
Read on to learn about ways you can try new products without spending a small fortune.
Getting companies to part with their goods is not hard as long as you are asking the right questions the right way. When a company does offer you products to try, make sure to give them a quick shout out and thanks on social media. Also, even when they don’t ask for it, offer them one-on-one feedback on the product or share a short review with your professional network. Lastly, always be gracious by thanking the person who hooked you up with those beauty goodies!
