Do You Give Your Products or Services Away For Free?

Do You Give Your Products or Services Away For Free?

When my book came out last year, a number of people asked me to give them a copy. They didn’t want to pay for a copy, they wanted one for free.

I talk to other entrepreneurs who deal with this all the time, particularly a couple of my photographer friends whose families and friends always ask for free services.

As an author I was able to purchase bulk orders of my book at a discounted rate but I didn’t get books for free. The only free copies of the book that were given by the publisher were for media contacts and reviewers.

That experience made me realize I needed to put some boundaries between free and fee, and that’s my topic for today’s episode of She Takes on the World TV.
