Verkada Ups Ante, Now Giving Away $50 Walkie Talkies

By Ethan Ace and John Honovich, Published Jun 25, 2021, 09:46am EDT (Info+)

Verkada is upping the webinar gift ante, now giving away $50 walkie talkies to attendees, roughly double of the mainstay Yeti mug/tumbler, which they have already given away 100,000+ units.

In this note, we examine the offer, the supplier, the target audience, how it appeals to self-installing end users, the millions spent already on gifts, and the case for and against such spending. We conclude with a case of false advertising that was fixed.
