If you enjoy going to the gym you probably are aware of what pre-workout supplements are. They’re the latest trend to follow in sports and gyms, they’re a great way to increase your energy levels, reduce your fatigue and build muscle mass. But pre-workout supplements don’t come cheap and you probably would prefer to give them a test drive before investing in the product. But those sounds too good, doesn’t it? After all, you can’t simply go around asking for free stuff and get them, right?
Not necessarily. For ages now, companies are willing to offer free samples to customers and companies that produce pre-workout supplements are big on free samples. They aren’t unaware of the fact that their products are expensive and would rather you try their products and become loyal customers than invest in a product that isn’t right for you and end up unsatisfied.
But why would companies give out free samples?
One obvious reason for giving out free samples is that its an advertising technique which will help increase sales of that product. The fact that you got a free sample will be enough to impress you and you’ll be drawn to buying this brand because its tried and tested. It’s a great technique to use especially considering how many pre-workout supplements are so readily available in the market and its not just a benefit to the company but also to those who get the free samples! Overall, it’s just a big win-win situation for everyone.
How can I get my hands-on free samples?
It’s not as difficult as you would be led to believe. However, there are certain things you need to be careful about before indulging yourself in freebies. To start off with, the freebies might be marketed and designed to seem like they are high-quality free samples when they aren’t. To avoid falling for these gimmicks you need to arm yourself with the ability to determine and differentiate between reputable and trustable websites from websites that are no more than scams.
How does one do that? There are two basic ways to save yourself from falling prey to these shady sites:
- Trust your gut. If you feel like the website doesn’t seem like a genuine site it probably isn’t. For example, it might have a strange web address that will send out red flags that you shouldn’t ignore. Similarly, if it isn’t optimized or is poorly designed, these are telltale signs that these websites cant be trusted.
- The link provided on the website which is offering the free sample should link you to the official manufacturer’s website. If it takes you anywhere else, run! Similarly, if the links aren’t secured with security protocols they cant be trusted.
If you do happen across a dependable website, you’ll discover that they offer various free supplement trials for different manufacturers and you’ll be linked to the manufacturer to get the sample. If clicking on the link leads you to the official website then it is completely 100% genuine and you’re good to go. But if it leads you to another website and that is one that you have tried and tested before and you trust, that’s where your gut comes in and you’re probably safe.
The website will probably ask you to fill out a form or even share their website on your social networks. They may even ask you to subscribe to their newsletters. These might be a small price to pay for the greater benefit. However, make sure to only fill out the mandatory fields and not offer any additional private information.
Bloggers can ask manufacturers to send free samples that you can review. But if you do take up this responsibility make sure you do your research on what the formulas are and whether they’re safe to use. You can email them for the details. They are more than likely to send you free samples because it will also serve good publicity for them as well.
Another way to get your hands-on free supplement samples is by spending a bit of money. All you must do is purchase something from popular websites such as bodybuilding.com. If you spend over $75 you’ll be able to choose from a wide list of free stuff and sometimes you even get free samples for your purchases.
Supplementwarehouse.com is another well-known website to get free samples from. It is 100% reliable and secure and you are offered free samples for every purchase you make. They sometimes offer up to ten free samples with the purchase you made. Examples of free products, other than supplements, include a free shirt or shaker bottle.
