If you go to computer fairs / tech shows / etc. and hand out CDs,
especially if you burn them yourselves, make sure that you have a gift
box, and if people ask if CDs can be taken for free, answer "yes, but we
gratefully accept any gifts to help cover our costs".

Many people feel "obliged" to put some money in the gift box...  ;-)

At some fairs we (the Belgian Team) actually gather more in gifts than
the cost we made for the booth space + CD-Rs + (xeroxed) flyers.  At
most fairs it's the other way around, but it still helps us to keeps our
expenses as low as possible.
