The Blogger Union Sponsor Testimonials

Capital One

“We decided to sign on to be the presenting sponsors of the 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

Nordstrom Pentagon City

We have partnered with The DC Blogger Union here in the DMV area for a few events in the past, and once again this event in September was a huge success. The DC Blogger Union was invited out to come and have a private viewing and shop party with us, and they came out in full force and really assisted with adding volume to our Beauty Department. They were so excited and we all had so much fun working with the group as they shopped with us, and learned all about some of the new Fall products. We also made some great new connections and future Beauty appointments with some of the influencers, which is a homerun! I want to say ‘Thank You’ to the group for coming out early for us and shopping with us, and we look forward to the next event!Percell Paul, Nordstrom Pentagon City Beauty Manager
