What Our Customers Have to Say

Foothill College

Embarcadero Media's advertising experts helped us increase sales for our Celebrity Forum lecture series, by working within our budget and creating a marketing campaign that included a combination of effective print and digital ads. Professional and friendly customer service combined with their expertise made the entire process run smoothly. We also added a marketing email blast which was sent to their entire Peninsula email list. Within the first hour after the email was sent, we saw a huge spike in ticket sales. Well worth the investment!

Foothill College

Embarcadero Media has been instrumental in building the Facebook Festivals brand...Starting out in 2015, it was apparent that Facebook could not rely on social media alone to drive foot traffic to public events hosted on our campus. With your guidance and print media expertise, we've been able to grow a small Farmers Market with a few hundred visitors to now, Facebook Festivals with over 10,000 attendees per event.
