How Freebies Can Make You Money
At Your Next Garage Sale
It’s no secret that people coming to a garage sale are looking for a good deal. They’re hoping to find treasure amongst someone else’s “trash” and expect to walk away paying as little as possible for something they really want or need. And since these people are looking for the garage sales with the best deals, what deal beats free? Believe it or not, by offering freebies at your next garage sale, you can actually attract more people and in turn, make more money. Here are a few creative ways the free stuff can actually turn into a profit for your next Saturday morning sale.
Knowledge is power, and people love the opportunity to get free advice or info, so why not use your garage sale as a way to share your wisdom and expertise with the community? If you’re an expert in a particular field, offer free advice or informational brochures that people could use. For instance, a realtor in Miami may give shoppers a copy of the Sky Five Properties lease purchase guide to shoppers who are looking to buy a new home, while an engineer could offer to answer commonly asked questions about technology issues.
