or brand new, and really wanted to draw our customers attention to it.
There are several different ways of doing this.
You can mention it to the customer when you speak to them.
You can include a sample when you leave them a new book or in their order.

to buy it or return it at the end of a specified amount of time (usually a week to a month depending on the product).

From Heidi Butler:
"I personally have started offering a free full-sized
product with a specific order size every single campaign. This has really been a big hit in
several ways. My average order size has increased, as my customers are wanting the free product. I have more customers ordering
on a regular basis and I have customers who have found new favorite products."
