If you are talking about consumers instead of potential retailers, I would say they should BUY them, and TRY them! I see you offer three for a price of $16.99, which is very affordable if someone wants to try your product out.
If the product requests are from a potential retailer, I would do some research on them. Why send your product out to everyone that asks you to?
We have always been inundated with product sample requests, which I use to be fairly generous about. But handelgate asked the right question, do they actually buy after they get the sample?
In our business it`s easy for everybody to say they want to start a jerky business and feel they have a need to request samples of our product. Do you realize how many companies they could be calling with the same request? Lots of jerky they`re eating. :) We now have a sample package they can purchase that will be deducted off their first order with our company. It works very well.
I know you`re product is completely different because it is unique. That might be a reason a potential retailer might want to see it. Some of the other suggestions have been great. Make it so they have no question about how it looks, how it works and how it feels. The demonstration video would probably work very well.
