HappyFreebie Founder

Ben Buie | 5/29/13

The idea for HappyFreebie came when I featured my neckties (MyNiceTie) on a niche giveaway blog and found it to be very effective but difficult for both the user and business. I decided to make giveaways easier online. I built the business from nothing to 3,300 subscribers through an innovative and low-cost marketing strategy.
