Let's also keep in mind if something is free there is no
revenue generated by it.
Therefore, it would make sense there would be less marketing
for something free.
The more marketing done for something free = more $$ lost on
the product. Even a virtual conference
has costs associated to it
It's not necessarily up to the company giving something away
to make sure that everyone hears about it (is marketed to)
Some of the responsibility of furthering our education is
for us to find them not wait for them to find us.
