You’ve often heard the phrase “there is no such thing as a free lunch”, right? Right. But I can tell you there is such a thing as “free, top brand, cosmetic products”.
You see, many of the brand leaders provide some free cosmetics for certain reasons that I explain below. And this is your opportunity to get your favorite luxury brands free of charge.
OK, first “why” and then “how”. Well, there are three main reasons for the “why”:
1- Market Testing
They may be “market testing” a new range. Who better to tell them what they think of the product than *you*. Think about it.
If you don’t take a free bag of cosmetics or a high quality bag for say $1, then you are unlikely to go and buy the same Cleansing Foam for men products. But if you do take the products they provide for free or for $1, then you are more likely to later buy the product.
After testing, if you intend to buy the products later, then you obviously like the products. They will want to know what exactly you like about the products.
If you decide you won’t be buying the cosmetics in the future, again they’ll want to know how they can improve their cosmetics range. In short your opinion matters.
2- Market Stimulation
The cosmetics firm may be stimulating the market for a new product. So you will get a whole bunch of small samples or may be even full sized products. And if you’re happy with the products, you will of course rave about it to all your frineds. Hey look, we all like to talk about the latest, biggest, best, most unusual, luxurious, etc, experiences we’ve had.
This is an age old technique used in marketing and you can benefit by knowing where to look and getting a regular supply of top brand cosmetics. Sometimes all it will takes is giving your opinion.
There are even times when the cosmetics firms will invite you to take part in their focus groups. In return for your detailed opinions the benefits can be huge.
When I say detailed, I mean you may have to fill in a 5 page form for example. They’ll want to know what you thought of everything. The packaging, the product and even the way the cosmetics range was presented to you. Your rewards can be significant.
3- Marketing Boost
There are times when a cosmetics range has been around for a while and is well established. Even thought this cosmetics range is well liked, the newer competition and competitive marketing may be taking some customers away.
Many cosmetics firms run campaigns to give a bit of a boost to their existing ranges. This is why you often see TV and billboard advertisements for products that have been around for ages. But in those ads, they can offer free cosmetics to everyone nor can they let you touch, feel and sample the cosmetics.
Therefore the free offers are made through other means and the Internet has made this much easier and cheaper than ever. The result is that you too can benefit significantly as I will show you next.
How? Well, the free cosmetics products aren’t advertised on the TV but they are widely publicized on the web. This makes it really easy for you to find them. There are specialist web sites that will list these offers for you.
