Marketing Through Giveaways

Marketing doesn’t always have to involve using methods like search engine optimization, email marketing, or banner advertising. Instead of using expensive methods of marketing you can also market your company by giving your product away for free to select bloggers.
One person who recently did this was Alexander Barbara from [Sarah's Sweet Fountains](http://www.sarahs-sweet-fountains.com/). Just last week a [16 inch Chocolate Fondue Fountain Party Pack](http://www.sarahs-sweet-fountains.com/sephra-select-chocolate-fondue-fountain-party-pack-p-226.html) arrived at my door.
The smart thing that Alexander did was that he targeted bloggers that could write about his company and products. Not only did he send me a Chocolate Fondue set, he also sent other bloggers this. By doing this he is creating evangelists that will always end up talking about him and his company.
This is a great way to market your company!
