GCI: Is it a reasonable or feasible goal to create a sale through samples?
Tom Martin: The major goal for companies using samples is to get their new product into the hands of consumers before or during launch to create a new buying opportunity, and/or to create a buzz and a buying opportunity for an innovative product.
Mark Lockyer: Yes, absolutely. It has been proven time and again that a good quality sample delivering a positive brand experience will directly increase sales, often with incredible results.
