A Few More Ways to Get Free Items
Above, I’ve given you lots of places you can find free product testing opportunities. There are, however, a few more things you can do to find even more opportunities.
42. Follow brands on social media
Brands may post about new product samples and testing offers on their social media accounts.
Consider your favorite brands and follow them on Twitter, Instagram, or anywhere else they have a social media profile.
This is such a good way to not only keep up with free product opportunities, but also to keep up with coupons, deals, giveaways, and other opportunities to save money and get your hands on some free stuff!
43. Start a blog
Okay, so a lot of companies nowadays want to work with bloggers to promote their items. So, they often send out pre-release items to bloggers.
For example, a beauty brand may be releasing a new line of lipsticks. So, they send the whole line to a beauty blogger who will test the lipsticks and write a blog post about the new line.
This means that if you have a blog, you can work directly with brands to promote their products. This is a good way to not only get free products to test out but also to get paid for creating sponsored content too, in some cases.
Now, anyone can start a blog, but not everyone can make a blog successful. It takes a lot of work, and often you are at the whim of Google when it comes to actually getting your site to rank.
All you need to get started is a topic for your blog, and a WordPress account, as a well as a domain name and hosting.
Once, you’ve started your blog, upload quality content consistently. Build up your following, and then brands will want to work with you.
44. Gain a following on social media
You could also build up a following on sites like Instagram and Twitter. Brands also want to work with people who have a large following on social media.
Once you have a large social media following you can sign up for sites that give social media influencers product testing and paid opportunities, like:
If you build up a YouTube channel, this can also give you product testing opportunities.
45. Get free gift cards from Swagbucks that you can use to get free stuff!
If you just want to get your hands on more free stuff, I’d recommend signing up to Swagbucks.
On Swagbucks, you can earn gift cards for lots of retailers, like Amazon and Walmart, and money right to your PayPal account.
Here’s how it works:
- Sign up for Swagbucks
- Complete easy tasks like watching videos, shopping online, playing games, and browsing the internet.
- Earn points called Swag Bucks (SB) for doing these tasks.
- Redeem your Swagbucks for gift cards or money to your PayPal account.
That’s it! It’s so simple!
You can then use the money you make or the gift cards you get to buy yourself stuff for free!
You basically get free cash to spend on whatever products you want.
