Sixty-one percent of US consumers have made a purchase based on a blog post, according to Ignite Spot Outsourced Accounting’s The Blogconomy. It was also noted that 70 percent of consumers learn about a company through articles rather than ads.
With the holiday and New Year season quickly approaching, there are many individuals, bloggers, who are eagerly seeking items to share for their "must-have," “must-cook” or “must-visit” lists for the season; while other bloggers are looking for charities to highlight and home and financial services to incorporate for end of the year planning. While our company works with traditional media outlets, we also work with bloggers who have worked to build local and international fans (consumers), as well as the top search engines. Wouldn't it be great if your company's products were a part of several lists and articles in the coming months?
On Monday, Nov. 24, Above Promotions is hosting “Connect to Blog,” an exclusive vending event where the attendees are influential bloggers looking for new products to review, share or give to their readers. The vendors, brands, are able to tell their stories to the bloggers in-person instead of introductory emails.
Connect to Blog is unique and innovative to the industry as it gives each brand in attendance a chance to personally interact with and generate their own personal relationship with bloggers for their current and future marketing campaigns. Because of limited space for this event, this means you have a chance to outshine against your top competitors.
We are very excited about this event. Not only are you getting a chance to gain exposure and develop your own relationship with bloggers for your future events and products, but the event will help us to provide attention to the Children's Board, a worthy non-profit that works to protect and serve the youth and families in our area. Also, by being a part of this event a portion of your investment to expand your brand will be a financial gain to help the Children's Board.
So as you can see, we are really excited about November 24th and what it has in store for your company's future and our community!

If you register by Oct. 31, you will have a chance to share upcoming sales, events or company news with attendees before Nov. 24.
Connect to Blog is a great way to start or complement your holiday publicity and marketing campaign or establish a successful relationship for future news with bloggers with anxious consumers as readers.
