We ended up getting over a hundred blog book reviews and more than 200 tweets – and we still have dozens of responses to follow up on, even after the campaign ended. They’ve also left me with collateral I can use into the future to promote me and my book. I would use Chris and his team again in a heartbeat. They know their stuff, they are extremely low maintenance to work with, and they did a fantastic job."
Stever Robbins, Author, 9 Steps to Work Less and Do More

"Upon launching, Kimberly-Clark Healthcare needed to increase the attention, traffic, and profile. We retained Chris Abraham and his team initially to drive traffic to the site using combined social media and blogger outreach. This resulted in over 100% increase to the number of site visits compared to the time frame prior to the campaign, as well as a number of secondary benefits such as brand recognition and a first page, number 6, placement when searching for “healthcare-associated infection” on Google. The blogger outreach team did a phenomenal job at finding all the relevant blogs and influencers germane to the issue of HAIs, immunodeficiency, and infection as well as reaching out, engaging them, and earning their posts, tweets, and likes about the issue of HAI and the associated HAI Watch website. They accomplished this successfully in English, Spanish, and Portuguese in countries including Argentina and Brazil. While we were able to prepare the ideal site to be used as a resource for the US and Latin American market, it was Chris that was best able to attract the most influential bloggers by being sensitive and responsive to cultural differences while applying US-proven methods of reaching out to bloggers."
Sergey Krayev, Global Marketing & Communications, Kimberly-Clark Health Care

"It’s been a true pleasure working with Chris Abraham and his team. They increased the online awareness of OLX far more than I thought would be possible with English, Spanish and Portuguese bloggers."
Fabrice Grinda, Co-Founder and Co-CEO, OLX

"We are so grateful for the commitment Chris Abraham and his team made to help us end chronic homelessness in Washington, DC. Chris' commitment has been shown in many ways, and the most recent example is their pro-bono work on our behalf for Give to the Max Day in November 2011. They created a clear, succinct Give to the Max Day social media news release that was shown to more than 1,100 bloggers in the DC area. From that outreach, many bloggers joined the conversation about ending chronic homelessness by publicizing Miriam’s Kitchen’s participation in Give to the Max Day. Chris was a key factor in our ability to raise money to end chronic homelessness in Washington, DC on Give to the Max Day. For that (and the many other amazing things they’ve done for us), we are forever grateful to have him working on our behalf."
Jenn Roccanti, Miriam’s Kitchen

 "Chris Abraham's blogger outreach strategy was a game changer for our social media project, My Fellow American. Over just a couple months, Chris' team was able to reach 60 million eyeballs, and nearly 1,000 bloggers posted about our project. I found their team to be highly professional, and excellent in coaching my staff and team in building a well-coordinated social media and outreach strategy. The crispness of the blogger outreach messaging and their ability to develop attention for our project across very diverse networks has completely changed the way that we now handle our outreach and social media engagement."
Daniel Tutt, Unity Productions Foundation

"Skinny & Co. is thrilled with the outcome of our 3 month blogger campaign! Working with Chris and Dan was an absolute delight. Their professionalism is unmatched and we were extremely satisfied with the response to their work! Over the course of three months, they contacted thousands of bloggers resulting in 500 posts, YouTube videos, and social media mentions from influencers across the board. This helped increase our audience reach and generate lots of new customers. Plus, everything was timely, well-organized, and easy to understand. I'd highly recommend their services and look forward to working with them again in the future. Thanks so much, Chris and Dan!"
Kaylyn Easton, CMO, Skinny & Co.

When I put together a small network of social media thought leaders in 2009 for, Chris was the first person I contacted. Since then, I've been repeatedly struck by his thought leadership across a wide range of topics, including social marketing, blogger campaigns, reputation management and much more. Chris is generous with his insights and probably doesn't know how far ahead of the curve he is. (Shhh! Let's not tell him.) Next time I need to run a social media campaign, Chris will be the first person I call. Need to contact somebody smart about anything related to social? Chris is your guy."

During my internship, Chris went out of his way to help me understand the business, make connections in the social media community and encourage me to start blogging.

Chris and his team introduced a concept of blogger outreach to me for the first time, and I was skeptical at first, not having any experience with these types of programs. Well, Chris made me a believer after our first program, and he completely went above and beyond my expectations on KPIs. Our site traffic, brand awareness, and most importantly organic search rankings made us rockstars, and I am very excited to work on more programs with Chris in the near future."
