Since there's no better way for brand marketing than the word of mouth (that's you), we prefer giving a limited amount of Slingshots for free to people like you, instead of investing in expensive and ineffective brand advertising.
If you like the Slingshot you will try it and recommend us to your friends. When asked by people where you got your Slingshot, we're sure you will recommend us again. That's the best advertising for us. This is a win-win situation!
