We usually hand out free samples at our shows to share some lovely lotion with everyone. It requires a lot of prep time making the lotion, bottling and labeling them. That is not even the hard part. Giving them away is the hard part!
Handing out free samples is harder than it looks. Trust me. It is true. It is not even about technique. Sometimes different ways can be more effective but more often than not it is hard to give away free stuff. It seems as though people think if they take a free sample of lotion that they might explode or spontaneously combust. I stand at my booths for each show offering free lotion samples to anyone and everyone. So many times I am shot down like a crazy person offering you a bug sandwich. I think some people actually believe that if they take the free sample that the sample will jump at them and chase them around like a wild rooster. Don’t get me wrong I understand the fear of being chased by wild roosters. As a child, I was once chased around the yard by a psychotic rooster. Don’t laugh! You don’t know fear until you have been chased by a psychotic rooster! I still stand at the ready to offer you a free sample of some amazing lotion with a smile on my face. But, the smile might just be from picturing you being chased around by a rooster. ;)
