How To Find Genuine Freebies and What Freebies To Avoid

The definition of a genuine freebie is a product, sample or service that you can get absolutely for free; to clarify, that means zero costs, no shipping fee to pay and no surveys to answer.

Everyone loves to get something for nothing, but most people don't know where to look to find genuine freebies. The Internet is full of so called "Freebie" sites, but the truth is, with many of them, you are forced to sign up for their daily emails before you can even check out their Freebie Offers. Now, that wouldn't be so bad if once you had subscribed you had easy access to their free offerings, but unfortunately, that is not often the case!

In many instances you find yourself chasing your own tail; that is to say you click from link to link, often without being presented with the Freebie you are looking for. This can become very frustrating, and often leads to throwing your hands in the air in despair and clicking away from the site.

Not only have you wasted your valuable time, but you are left receiving a worthless daily email that you don't want. Obviously you can unsubscribe yourself, but that's not really the point.

The problem with these types of Freebie sites is they give the good sites a bad reputation too. Worse still, they lead many people to believe that there is no such thing as a Genuine Freebie, so they give up looking!

Giving up is a big mistake because Genuine Freebies do exist in the thousands; to find out why, read on....

Why do businesses offer Freebies?

Businesses, large and small, offer Freebies as part of their marketing strategy because, believe it or not, it's often cheaper to offer a Freebie than it is to undertake a major advertising campaign.

For example, if a company believes it has a better product than its competitors, offering a freebie is the perfect way to get consumers to try their product. If the consumer prefers the free product sample to the one they are currently using, it is highly likely they will change brands. It's that simple.

How to find Genuine Freebies

The problem with finding most freebies is that they are never officially announced, rather, they are simply launched. This is because companies do not want to undertake large advertising costs on distributing free products.

The only way to find freebies on a regular basis is to be "in the know"!

Finding free products and samples yourself is likely to be a very time consuming and frustrating experience. Constantly checking company websites, Google, forums, news channels and other sources looking for free offerings takes up an enormous amount of time. On top of that, the responsibility to filter out scams and worthless offerings falls squarely on your own shoulders.

The only way to stay "in the know", without undertaking an enormous amount of time consuming market research, is to find a reputable and reliable Freebie Site.

A good Freebie Site takes the time to find genuine freebies on a daily basis and present them to you in the simplest way possible - just one click and you are on the company page where you can request your free product. Sites like these are an invaluable tool to anyone that enjoys hunting for freebies.

Of course, anyone can search for freebies by themselves, but why would they want to spend all they're valuable time researching when they can use sources that remove all the leg work?

What Freebies to avoid

While there are tons of genuine freebies available across the Internet, there are just as many scams that are designed solely to get you to part with your personal information - so be careful!

If a Freebie looks too good to be true, it probably is, so don't waste your time chasing it!

When we say "To Good To Be True" we are talking about the kind of ads you see that reward you with a $250 gift card for undertaking a simple survey.
