I am struggling a little financially. Now I am planning to do something, it involves getting people to sign up to win products for free, getting people to download software, etc. In order to get these people the companies allow me to use incentives like giving them money, offering gift, virtual currencies that can used for online shopping, etc in order to get these customers (these money or gift offered, I have to pay, I can make sure it's less than what they pay me).
Does this count as a bribe because what I think the companies are doing is trying attract customers for their business by giving them something in return so they can make more profit or more profit than competitors.
Please can someone answer this if they are knowledgeable in this field.
