I’ve worked closely with Target River to promote a nonprofit in the Ogden area. Over the last year their team of experts has helped us create a new brand guide and website! We also now have a strong social media and web presence. As a result, we’ve been able to help more people who need free medical / dental care! In addition, people in the community have reached out about volunteering or donating because they found us online. Thanks Target River!

We entered into an agreement with Target River to help us develop strategic marketing to help in our recruitment campaign. Our goal was to fill in difficult vacancies throughout Queen Creek Unified School District. Thanks to their amazing work, we have reduced our vacancies by 50% across all district areas, particularly in the transportation department. We are very close to hitting our target range of 35 additional hires and staff members. This is all thanks to Target River’s high-quality consulting services. Not only are they responsive to our requests, but they are also collaborative in our decision-making and support our overall goals. If we have any questions, they answer them promptly and propose solutions and other options to roadblocks or delays based on the data we’ve reviewed. They have been punctual in their timeline and produce any requested modifications in a timely matter. As our ads go live, Target River keeps us updated on progress and responds promptly to additional consultations to review our performance. They have worked wonderfully within our budget and offered many options at reasonable rates, whether for additional action items or collaborative ideas. Overall, we highly recommend Target River’s services to anyone seeking them.

I cannot say enough about the positive character of Brian Epperson. I first became acquainted with Brian through his professional service and it quickly became apparent that he and his associates operate out of kindness and care rather than profits and personal gain. Brian demonstrated sincere concern for our community. He applied himself to understanding who we are, identifying our needs and helped us realize how to leverage our abilities and resources to realize our potential. All of Brian’s associates exhibit the same sincere care for our most important stakeholders, our students, personified by Brian and his leadership.

We’ve been with Target River for a few months now, and we’ve had a really great experience. Paula and everyone on her team that helps with our marketing is great at reaching out working with our marketing guy to make sure we are in control and know what we have out there, and know the messages we are sending to our customers. Our sales brand guide has been really good! And we get a lot of leads and it’s been great in the few months we’ve been doing it and we’re all excited to go for it and see what we can do for the future.

I am pleased to share my sincere appreciation to Target River for their exceptional support during our recent enrollment campaign. As the Superintendent of Los Alamitos Unified School District, fostering a thriving and vibrant student community is paramount, and Target River played a pivotal role in achieving this goal. Collaborating to address an anticipated enrollment decline, Target River executed a comprehensive marketing strategy through social media, radio, TV, and direct mailing. Despite projecting a loss of nearly 150 students, we experienced a marginal decrease of fewer than five students from the previous year. This success underscores Target River’s strategic approach and innovative solutions. I wholeheartedly recommend Target River as a dedicated, results-driven marketing partner that positively impacted our school district’s vitality.

Dr. Andrew Pulver

Superintendent | Los Alamitos Unified School District

We started working with Target River due to decreasing enrollment and have continued our work with them because they have become an invaluable part of our marketing and enrollment strategy. We could not do our work without them and we consider them an integral part of our team. Their strategic marketing efforts, leveraging a mix of traditional and digital media, have played a pivotal role in reversing a trend of declining enrollment. By crafting a compelling narrative about our educational programs and community values, they helped us reach and engage potential new students and their families.

Veronica Grajeda

Director of Admissions and Community Engagement | High Tech High

The Target River team has been a fantastic marketing team. They have communicated and educated me on all steps of the process. I was grateful for their openness to feedback as we worked to ensure the campaign captured our branding. They gave us suggestions for website improvements and they adapted the campaign in order to receive top results. I highly recommend Target River.
