Optometric Education Consultants
Samantha grew up in an optical practice with multiple family members in the industry. An ABO certified optician herself, Samantha worked as a dispensing optician for eight years, as well as managed an independent optometric practice. During this time, she realized there were very few people, or marketing firms, that understood the unique marketing needs of the optical industry.
With a strong passion for marketing and design, Samantha pursued and completed her bachelor’s degree at Michigan State University. In 2003, she started Innereactive Media, a full service advertising agency and digital marketing company.
Her experience as a certified optician, along with her formal marketing education has given her a unique perspective on marketing, design, and website solutions for the eye care industry and as a result, she and her team work with a number of clients in the eye care and optical field.
Samantha is an ABO, NCLE, AOA, JCAHPO, and COPE approved speaker and she lectures Internationally teaching owners and managers best practices for marketing their business. Her niche expertise led her to be named one of the “Most Influential Women in Optical,” and her company was named one of Michigan’s Top 50 Companies to Watch. She and her team work with frame and lens manufacturers, laboratories, eye care practices, as well as other industries across the country.
In between flights and lectures, Samantha always finds time to indulge in her intense love for sports and thoroughbred racing on the nearest screen. When at her home, she loves to hike and spend time with her friends and family.

Innereactive was established on April 22, 2003 by Samantha Toth. Samantha was raised in an eye care family, which includes three optometrists, a national sales manager for a large frame company and a certified optician. She too spent eight years working as an ABO certified optician in the Grand Rapids area wearing many hats. Her passion for marketing led her to pursue a BA degree from Michigan State University and ultimately start Innereactive to provide custom marketing solutions for the optical industry and other small to medium sized businesses.

Two short years later the growing demand for graphic design and marketing services created the need for additional staff and a seemingly shrinking amount of office space. The Innereactive team relocated to Ada, Michigan. One year later, with more staff joining the team, the office was expanded by an additional 1,200 square feet.
In 2009, launched Innexus®, an all-in-one, don’t-do-it-yourself website, social media, and marketing solution. Designed by certified eye care professionals with extensive experience in optometry and ophthalmology, these programs were designed to help eye care professionals generate new patients online, stay connected on social media, and reactivate patients with email, text, and voice reminders. Having helped digitally market and grow over 1,000 eye care professionals across the country, Innexus was a tremendous success.
In February 2013, Innereactive moved to an even larger location in Grand Rapids, Michigan. From 2016 to 2019, the team grew again to fourteen and then again to 22 members including marketing strategists, graphic designers, web developers, business development, and project management specialists. In addition to being experts in their field, all Innereactive employees are also fully trained in optical, right down to lens designs and treatments. Meet our team here!
In June 2021, Innereactive decided to sell the Innexus division of the company to Marketing4ECPs, while Innereactive remained under full ownership by Toth. “The decision to split Innereactive and Innexus into two separate divisions was difficult, but I’m extremely excited for both the team and members of Innexus to have the opportunity to join the Marketing4ECPs family. A lot of purposeful thought and collaboration went into this decision, and I couldn’t be happier to have found the right home for Innexus”, says Toth. Her passion of supporting independent eye care practices fueled her vision of building an organization that could stand the test of time. Over the last two decades, Innexus has helped over a thousand eye care practices across North America grow their patient bases, brand recognition, and overall profitability.
Innereactive continues to grow and thrive under Toth’s leadership while operating independently of Innexus by providing full-scope advertising and digital marketing services to enterprise clients in all industries. Of course, the eye care industry will always have a special place in Samantha’s heart.
