Top Female Bloggers Join Viewpoints Reviews Panel To Test Consumer Products

The goal is to learn quickly if new products are worth buying. This is information consumers increasingly want, and bloggers have the platform to share.

Chicago, AUGUST 29, 2012 — One of the leaders in consumer reviews, Viewpoints (, has named a respected group of female bloggers to a panel that will test consumer products, then weigh in on the pros and cons. In this unique partnership, their opinions will be shared with their own online audience as well as the audience on Viewpoints to amplify the information consumers are increasingly seeking about products new to market. Once the testing is complete, each blogger will donate the product she tested to a charity of her choice.
