I built a down line who, in turn, did the same thing. They were buying the products and handing out the samples to their friends and family all over the place. I am sure their cost for resending samples to their families were quite high.
So, Melvin, our team did hand out samples for quite some time. All I got out of it was two large personal loans that I am still paying for. And the bottom line is that I got zero results and no customers.
I asked a question earlier in a forum and I was told not to do that. I was further instructed to narrow my target market and stick with that until I see some results.
I have now a website where the company offers a free sample to the prospective customer with a guarantee with it. If a customer is willing to buy, I would be willing to advance samples for their family at least until their shipment arrives.
For me and for all my efforts, handing out samples does not work. When a person becomes serious about doing something about their health, I will work with them to get them some samples.
I thank everybody for their contribution to this discussion.
I'm sorry to hear that and I'm not sure how they went about it but sample shouldn't run that much money. Most companies have sample kits so I really can't fathom needing to take out personal loans. But like I said, you have to decide what's best for your business. I use samples to get people talking and I just gave my input on how I went about it
