so have you ever been to Costco or Sam's Club on the weekend?


samples on samples on samples


I like to take the college kiddos close to lunch time LOL!

so why do those places give out all those samples?

Because when you taste them you then want to buy them


It is a safe way to try out new things and see if they work for you

So, if you KNOW samples work to increase sales….

Do you give out samples?

I am going to guess not.

Most Stampin'Up! Demos have a hard time figuring out what that would look like.

So let me give you 3 Ideas on how to incorporate the idea, and success, of free samples

1) Tags

Gift tags can be made with paper scraps left over from events, etc. 

By highlighting one stamp set, one dsp, and an embellishment you can create a cute little sample that also doubles as a kit. You can include a little card with your info, how to order, and a list of items.

This is great for those people who aren't your customers as it gives them an opportunity to see exactly what you do, and creates and easy purchase opportunity


2) Embellishment Samples

By putting a couple doo dads and snippets in a pretty bag or box with a tag, people can get a taste of what you sell and it lets them try them out and see if they want more. 

this is great to do with new ribbons and embellishments for existing customers


3) Free Class

don't let the idea of a free class scare you. By offering people an opportunity to come and stamp with you at a card class or card club it gives them a chance to see if this, and you, are a good fit for them.

If you are offering great events it is an awesome opportunity for them to come and say "holy cow, this rocks!!"

When I was holding monthly meetings for my first level in my home I would let potential recruits come ONE TIME. 

Each time they had so much fun that they signed up just so they could come back next month for the fun and laughs.


Take a look at your business and see if there is a place where sharing "free samples" could help you generate conversation with potential customers, increase sales of your existing customers or help you seal the deal on those potential recruits
