Getting free stuff is great, but…
There’s always a little skepticism that comes with a “free” price tag. What’s wrong with it? Does the quality level match the price? How good can it really be if it’s free?
You get the idea – generally, the lower the price the less you expect from the product or service. So, maybe some things really are worth paying for?
The idea of a free price tag has even higher stakes when it comes to businesses. Free stuff can be risky for a business, especially if it’s going in front of customers. At risk is more than just a few dollars - the cost of reputation and customer perception can be enormous.
Our advice? Buyer beware. If it has your brand on it, then it’s worth an investment.
