Why The Marketing Beacon

Because we stake our personal reputations on the work we perform for our clients, we expect extraordinary results. These results translate into marketing success for our customers. We would like to share what our clients say about us:


"Although our company has enjoyed much success over the years, we realized that we had marketing challenges that had not been addressed. We often talked about putting together a plan, but never did until we began working with The Marketing Beacon. They came in and developed a custom marketing roadmap that matched where we wanted to take our business. We simply trust them with managing the plan execution while we focus on running our company. The results have been tremendous and our market exposure has been fantastic. We now have market connections that did not exist before working with The Marketing Beacon. We consider them as a member of our sales and marketing team and cannot imagine our relationship any other way."

John Wood, CEO


"Aligning ourselves with The Marketing Beacon was one of the best decisions we could have made for satisfying our marketing needs. They understood our business and their experience in our particular market proved invaluable. The outsourcing model works and we are highly satisfied with the results they have delivered for our business."

Bryan Gay, President

“After the launch of our new law firm, our attention was almost exclusively on the operations of our business with little time for marketing. That’s when we asked The Marketing Beacon to step in to develop our firm identity package to include business card layouts and design of our letterhead and envelope packages. They answered the call and delivered exactly what we needed at a time when we needed it most. We then had them develop an ad layout for a local business publication to help raise visibility for the firm. The results for all of their work was outstanding.”

Jan Horton, Attorney & Partner

"Marketing is an area where a business of any size can make big investments with very little return. Small businesses don't have the luxury of making costly mistakes and staying in business for very long. The Marketing Beacon took the guess work out of marketing for PTG. We know that our marketing dollars are going to be invested in the areas that make sense for our business and give us the greatest potential for return."

Reed Wilson, President

Gospel Reformation Network

"GRN turned to The Marketing Beacon because we needed expertise in the challenges of marketing a Christian non-profit organization whose mission was not selling goods and services but rather one of proclamation and event management. We are so thankful for the time and patient way in which the Beacon helped us shape our events and online strategy. They helped us redesign our website and gave us some great promotional ideas on reaching new people. We are appreciative of this outstanding company in the Greenville area."

Melton L. Duncan, Executive Director Gospel Reformation Network

“For years, we grew our real estate business until we reached the point where we needed marketing help. Our overall identity was dated and we needed a fresh website to feature key property developments and listings. The Marketing Beacon worked with us to create a unified brand identity package that worked equally well for our development projects and our standard property listings. They took this new identity and developed a website that allows us to easily highlight any of our real estate listings or feature properties in our developments. We are very pleased with the results.”

Fellowship Presbyterian Church

“During a time of growth at our church, we built a new sanctuary to accommodate the number of new people coming to worship with us. This was the perfect time to revamp our logo, develop a new website, and create a welcome brochure for visitors. The Marketing Beacon stepped up to address each of these needs in a timely and professional manner. Our new website was designed for dynamic content so that we can update it with timely information while providing insightful content to those who desire to learn more about us. And, the welcome brochure is a highly useful tool to handout to visitors each week. The Marketing Beacon gave us exactly what we needed and we are grateful to have a completely refreshed look that perfectly reflects who we are.”

Working with The Marketing Beacon is easy and the results beyond compare."

The Marketing Beacon took care of everything from event master planning all the way through execution and management. The response from attendees was extremely positive and highly complimentary – a big success!"

"As a spinout technology company from a large corporation, it was crucial for us to educate the market about our existence. Early in our business, William Russell (The Marketing Beacon) was able to develop then effectively execute a strategic communications campaign that created market awareness and established credibility. This effort made a positive impression and was favorably embraced by key media players, industry analysts and market decision makers. We now have the momentum required to help take our business to the next level."

Gion Mendez, Owner


"The marketing knowledge housed in The Marketing Beacon is evident through their deliverables. It's easy for companies to make claims, but the real measure is whether they come through for you.

Tim Hutzel, President / Partner


"We contacted The Marketing Beacon because we were instantly impressed by a logo we had seen, and thankfully we were able to find out that they had produced it. The Marketing Beacon delivered exactly what we asked for, and more. They created a logo and complete identity package for GCR that has already provoked positive comments from our clients. I must commend them for being very tolerant of my perfectionism problem. The Marketing Beacon went above and beyond what I expected to produce exactly what we were looking for in a logo and company identity package."
