“Thank you for sending a great recap of the Hormel Fully Cooked Entree demos! I am extremely pleased with the fact that your team was able to sell 1,725 units! The pictures are wonderful and I love all the great comments about the product. And, the social media networking is really a plus.

Hopefully, we will be able to do this again in the near future. Thank you again for doing such a great job.”

- Sherry Templeton, Hormel Foods

“ABM’s business is very healthy, especially with Coco Re`al and Master of Mixes. YTD Coco Re`al is +225 cases, +63% and Master of Mixes is +1,237 cases, +76%. I believe the demos you and your Team do, plus the strong relationship you have with Buyers, have helped contribute greatly to our strong brand growth.”

- Erin Mertlbauer, American Beverage Marketers

“Prior to Expo West, we’ve contacted other sampling agencies and none compared to the communication and friendliness Brandon and his team had provided me.

Brandon values building a relationship with our company and we sincerely appreciate that. During the show, Brandon goes above and beyond to ensure everything in our booth is running smoothly. His team pays close attention to detail with the people they are interacting with and I can honestly say I am 100% satisfied with Social Sampling. The staff is knowledgeable, friendly and professional. We had an excellent experience and will continue using their service for all of our future events!”

- Chanel Leung, Organic RealBar

“Social Sampling has provided multiple successful In-Store promotions for Del Real. Their staff is very professional and efficient, which is why we can justify running back-to-back promotion programs with Social Sampling."

- Gary Lofgren, Del Real Foods

“Social sampling did a great job pre and post demo. The social media posts during the demos were great as we could basically see a demo happening and at what store.

Post demo recap is with all the social media pictures and sales analysis far exceeds other sampling companies across the market. Social sampling fulfilled the demo contract and did a great job!"

- Jeremy Greene, PopChips

“Social Sampling did an overall excellent job for us at US Beverage for this Stater Bros Moosehead 50 store promo event. The post event analysis/recap was exceptional, one of the best recaps I have ever seen. I visited some stores throughout the weekend, and for the promos I was able to catch, I really appreciated the interaction I saw with the samplers and the customers as well as their commitment to ensuring each event was successful. Thanks again for the great job!”

- Manny De La Rosa, US Beverage

“You all hit it out of the ballpark with your amazing communication skills and excellent, hard-working brand ambassadors. Thank you for making the demo request process simple and smooth, and for executing the events so well!”

“Social Sampling goes above and beyond in service/results, but lower rates than the Industry Standard! They are my ‘go to’ promotional (sampling & social) agency for every brand Navigator Sales represents. Their program package includes Social Media Marketing (at no additional charge), which greatly expands brand reach and is unheard of in this industry. I confidently endorse and recommend Social Sampling to any brand wanting an impact on brand awareness, more engagement and sales!”

Sincerely Great JOB!"
