Welcome to the Todd Smith Company!
We offer professional marketing services, targeting businesses involved in; archery, bowhunting, and the great outdoors. Traditional archery, primitive archery and the outdoor industry in general are a particular area of expertise for us. Our services help businesses bring products to market, advertise, and grow.
As a young man living in Alaska I met John Dodge, arguably one of the most talented fletchers (arrow builders) of our time. For ten years he shared his skills with me teaching me the art of hand crafting traditional cedar and wood arrows.
My final year in Alaska was a life-changing experience. I lived in a wilderness area of Alaska's Yukon river valley - hundreds of miles from the nearest road. One learns what is truly important in life when living so close to the land.
In 1987 I returned to Indiana and took a position with a small mail-order traditional archery company based in New Haven. The owner, Steve Ferree, and I worked side by side, shoulder to shoulder for many years growing that business. We took it from a back bedroom of his home to a 10,000 square foot operation in Northeast Indiana. In short order, Three Rivers Archery became one of the largest traditional archery suppliers in the world.
During my 19 years with 3Rivers Archery, I learned the traditional archery industry from the ground up, inside and out. I learned what it takes to market your products and your company to a specific targeted audience. My final years with 3Rivers I served as their Director of Sales and Marketing.
In 2008 I decided to go into business for myself offering my talents to help other businesses grow. The Todd Smith Company specializes in traditional, common sense marketing with an emphasis on website content management, SEO, email marketing and social media branding and marketing.
