The Blogger Union Sponsor Testimonials
“We decided to sign on to be the presenting sponsors of the 2017 South Florida Bloggers Awards after very little deliberation. Paola and her team proved to be both proactive and consummate professionals from start to finish. We had regular check-ins leading up to the event, which allowed for our teams to align and ensure we showed up in the best way possible day-of.
We’re still reaping the benefits of this sponsorship, as we had bloggers and local influencers that we met at the awards last month attend the VIP and Grand Opening events of our newest Capital One Café on Miracle Mile this month. The reach and awareness for our Café this partnership has brought about is proving to provide value above and beyond our initial investment and we look forward to continuing to work with the South Florida Bloggers Union!” – Andrew Winninger, Capital One Business Development

“We enjoyed hosting the South Florida Blogger Union for their meetup on our Vista Terrace. We’re always looking to partner and welcome locals to our hotel and the afternoon was the perfect way to leverage our property among the next generation of bloggers. We wanted to make the meetup as efficient as possible and ended it with a tour of our event spaces to showcase the hotel’s versatility for those vacationing, hosting an event or anything in between (while providing them with great content as well!)” – Becca Tash, Marketing Director at The Confidante Miami Beach
“Definitely, in this day and age it’s important to create attention on social media and to promote via social media instead of investing on print advertising or traditional advertising. Our customers are on social media.
Working with South Florida Bloggers was such a fun and unique experience. The bloggers were so comfortable in their style and had such lovely energy. Everyone was embracing each other’s unique qualities and bouncing ideas off of one another. There was no tension regarding competition, but rather a sense of a growing and expanding family of ladies who are all in the same field mentoring one another. A big thanks to Paola for helping gather these ladies altogether for a great styling session at Madewell Merrick Park, it was a pleasure working with you all!” – Gaby Rosario, Events & Marketing at Madewell

We also got lots of exposure on social media and we look forward to working with them again.” – Frank Encalada, Co-Owner of Divino Ceviche

We hosted more than 25 bloggers in a three week period at our Wynwood Food & Art Tour, and everyone was very active in social media as we were tracking live mentions.

Everyone followed up with writing a blog post of the food tour we provided – and Paola was very professional and quickly responded to all requests. Thank you folks!” – Grace Della, Co-Founder of Miami Culinary Tours

“We did have bloggers come in to redeem their cards which was great! We love keeping ourselves integrated with the local community and in tune to up and coming writing talent.

Plus, you guys actually putting on the event, yourself in particular, were extremely kind and professional. It was a pleasure working with you. You’re welcome back any time. 🙂 ” – Jensen Eddins, Marketing & Events Manager of Batch Miami Gastropub
“The Barre Code Miami had an amazing turn out for their first ever bloggers barre class with seventeen bloggers in total ready to sweat it out. All of the bloggers were eager to capture what The Barre Code was all about and they all did an amazing job via Snapchat, Instagram, and their individual blogs. It was great to experience the energy that all seventeen bloggers brought to class, gave during class, and continued to show by networking with each other and the studio even after we were done. We can’t wait to partner with South Florida Bloggers again!” – Jo Murdock, The Barre Code Master Trainer
“We have never seen such immediate results with other types of advertising. The South Florida Bloggers had an event here at Donut Divas and our social media mentions and geo tagging went through the roof.

We can’t wait to work with them again and highly recommend them.” – Yojani Blandino, Owner Donut Divas
