"We’ve been impressed by both the regional and national coverage that we’ve achieved and by the sheer number of opportunities that Absolute has found for us not only through traditional media but also through popular travel and family blogs. In addition to that they’ve helped us partner with major brands that we’re now working with to help build new followers and customers."
