Jeff Gardner, CEO, Irie-AT Inc.
Our company has worked with Sam Seavey and The Blind Life for a number of years and plan to continue indefinitely. Sam’s thorough and insightful product reviews have been a big help for customers seeking an objective review of products we sell. And our experience advertising with The Blind Life has been wildly successful. Sam recently did a product review on The Blind Life for the Kapsys SmartVision 2 smartphone. Shortly thereafter, we experienced an exponential increase in inquires on our website and in orders for the device. Months later, we continue to receive inquiries from people who became interested in the product first by watching Sam on YouTube. We’ve seen similar results for products Sam has reviewed and especially for those for which we pay for advertising and receive expanded visibility through The Blind Life. Sam has earned the respect and loyalty of a constantly-growing base of viewers of The Blind Life. His innate honestly shines through and people trust what he has to say. Blind and low vision consumers have so few objective resources on which to rely, and Sam and The Blind Life help significantly in reaching those audiences to provide the outside perspective they need. Working with Sam and Blind Life is a ‘win-win’. It’s better for customers because they can get objective information at a deep level that often is not available from any other source. And it’s great for companies to provide better exposure for their products. This is why we’ve become such strong believers in Sam Seavey and his excellent and informative YouTube channel, The Blind Life.
A huge thank you to Sam for the amazing videos he produced. His videos which were delivered in a fun and insightful manner, covered a lot of information about our products and elevated awareness for our company within the community. As soon as the videos were published, we noticed a substantial growth of customer interest. We received orders as well as requests for demo units. But it wasn’t just about videos and promotion. The main excitement came from how Sam blended his professional experiences, his passion in technology, and his dedication in helping others. He brought knowledge and strength to the community by helping individuals evaluate the tools and opportunities technology has to offer.

John McAteer, Owner – The NO-JAB Cane for the Blind
Greetings Mr. Seavey:
I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincere thanks and appreciation for your video of the evaluation of my cane. I found it to be very professional honest and frank. You pointed out the benefits and the complaints that you found during testing. I took you evaluation very seriously and addressed the problems that you brought to my attention. Thanks to you, I now manufacture a better product. I was amazed when your video was posted. I never dreamed that it would have such an impact. My sales on amazon jumped over night. It is quite possible that my cane would have never gotten off the ground without your help. I find that a lot of people are the “so called” visually impaired do-gooders are just interested in promoting themselves and and only pretend to help the blind. I’m am very glad you decided to evaluate my6 cane with a honest evaluation. Keep up the good work
Tom Perski – Iris Vision
To whom it may concern, I am writing to inform you of our ongoing relationship and collaboration with Sam Seavey. Sam has done a tremendous job in describing our product on You Tube at Iris Vision Global of California. His videos were done to help consumers understand the myriad of products on the market for persons with low vision. We did not pay him for his efforts, but very much appreciated his portrayal of several of our generation s of product. This was helpful to our company in several ways including using it for our website, and recently integrated his videos inside the headset of our product. We currently use his videos to introduce this special feature for all our devices worldwide. We have very much appreciated his efforts as we have collaborated only on a volunteer basis and plan to continue our relationship as we feel it has been very helpful to our company.

I became acquainted with Mr. Samuel D. Seavey IV around two years ago after previewing a blog on YouTube entitled The Blind Life. I’ve met him at various national trade shows and conventions since and have been witness to an individual that is of character that is of utmost respect and honor and his demeanor is always even keeled and professional. He engages his audience and in person in conversation with uncanny enthusiasm and articulately presents the salient characteristics of a products features and corresponding benefits with superb communication skills, conjecture, and a pinch of humor. He relates to the audience in a manner useful to the consumer by adopting a no-nonsense approach that is clearly understood, this puts him on top of his craft. It’s refreshing to look forward to each episode because he’s an artist that can juxtapose both technical and creative skills and leave the audience knowing his review is fair, unbiased, positive, encouraging, and assisting the manufacturer to raise the bar to help them help others help themselves through empowerment through use of adaptive technology. I would say, in my opinion, that there exists no better talent on the Internet in this scope of discipline.
BRYAN WOLYNSKI, O.D. - OrCam Technologies
I am an Optometrist who practices primary eye care and low vision. I also consult for OrCam Technologies. As an optometrist I need to keep up with the latest devices and emerging technologies and find Sam’s productions “The Blind Life” an amazing resource not only for my patients but also for professionals like myself. As someone who also works consulting for an assistive technology company, I find Sam’s assessments to be very professional, fair and informative. He makes a point even if something does not work for him, that it may work for others, not discounting the tech or a company. I have recommended “The Blind Life” to my colleagues and highly recommend Sam and his platform for any company to work with.
