I'm sure you know of people who get free stuff online and you've always wondered how they did it.
The truth is that there are many ways to get free samples online, but you have to know how to look for them.
Do you want to get free samples? Keep reading, because today we bring you a list of sites where you can get free samples and free gifts.
Why are they free?
Many times these free samples or free gifts are given out to boost new product launches and gather user feedback.
Brands and companies are interested in knowing what we think about the product. Why? Simple, we represent the potential customers of the products.
That's why they usually ask you to test the products for a while and then write a review.
How to get them?
You can do it from the comfort of your home (on your computer or cellphone) but there are two types of places to get them:
- Testing agencies: they are intermediaries between brands and those who want to test the product. They are in charge of distributing samples, receiving evaluations and conducting market research.
- Brand websites: many brands decide to open calls for testing their products from their own websites or social networks.
