Whether you’re debuting a new product to the marketplace or trying to gain renewed interest in an existing item in your product line, a great way to introduce new customers to your business is through product samples. Product samples allow your business to showcase new or older merchandise to a targeted audience with the intent of increasing your business’s revenue. Unfortunately, running a product sampling program can be both time consuming and expensive – not to mention the drain on valuable resources you incur when employees are diverted to assist in the execution of your sampling program. But there is good news. There’s a solution that can take the stress out of running a sampling program. That solution to these issues is outsourcing your sampling program to ShipFusion.
ShipFusion is proud to offer sample fulfillment services to a variety of business, including directly to manufacturers and merchants, or to marketing agencies working with manufacturers to distribute their products. ShipFusion can handle not only the shipping of your products, but the packing and marketing materials of those products as well. We can also help you ship marketing materials that do not include samples if you require assistance with literature campaigns.

How do Sample Fulfillment Services Work?
Sample fulfillment services run the gamut of many different things. It isn’t just about sending free samples out to just anyone. Sample fulfillment is a targeted marketing campaign that puts your products in the hands of credible potential buyers. Using your demographic information, sample fulfillment can zero in on the very people who would purchase your product after trying the sample and ship directly to them.
Sampling programs work like this: your business provides ShipFusion with your sample materials. They can be delivered right to our warehouse where they will be stored until your sample fulfillment program begins. From there, your samples will be expertly packed into the appropriate packaging. As a business, you are in control of the packaging. With our recommendations and your specifications, we can help design the perfect means to distribute your product, so it looks professional and arrives safely to the consumer.
From there, you may elect to provide further literature or money-saving coupons along with your sample. If so, these items are also included. Once your packaging is sealed and addressed, ShipFusion will ship out your merchandise, either via bulk mail or to a distribution channel of your choice, including marketing firms, stores, or another avenue.
Shipfusion Has Extensive Experience with Fulfillment for Product Samples
ShipFusion has worked with some of the biggest names in the product sampling business, including Sampler.io, a Toronto, Canada-based sample program which it has invested in. Sampler.io is a product sample service with a network of 50 million samplers, Sampler.io has not just a broad reach, but the ability to cull valuable data from their sample recipients. That data in turn can be used to further target specific demographics for other businesses looking to launch sample campaigns.
This means that with ShipFusion’s access to Sampler.io, and their own proprietary algorithms and software, your products will land only in the hands of consumers who want or need them, resulting in no wasted products, and no wasted time, energy, or money. Furthermore, with ShipFusion’s fast service, we can get your products into the consumer’s hands as quickly as you need, whether to tie-in to a current marketing campaign or just start your product launch ahead of your competitors.
Cost Effective Product Sample Fulfillment Services Without the Headache
As for the cost, ShipFusion offers low, competitive marketing rates versus industry standard fulfillment costs. This enables us to pass along the best price to you, our customer, and get your samples in the hands of the right people at the best value possible.
Sample fulfillment campaigns don’t have to be complicated or stressful. We know you have a lot on your plate, and adding one more thing such as a targeted sampling campaign may not always be practical or even possible. That’s why ShipFusion exists: to help you and your business run targeted sampling programs that not only save you time and resources, they save you money, too. With ShipFusion, you can leave your sampling program to the experts and focus on growing your business.
