Palmetto Technology Group

“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.”

Mr. Reed Wilson, President



“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.”

Mr. John Wood, President and CEO

Mr. Hollis (Chip) Felkel, President



“We’ve been extremely pleased with The Marketing Beacon.  Even though our companies are located on opposite coasts, communication is always consistent and reliable.  We had looked for years for a company with their level of marketing expertise and comprehension of our business.  Their approach is logical, methodical and effective.  Working with The Marketing Beacon is easy and the results beyond compare.”

Mr. Bob Nichols, President



“We knew we needed help with marketing, but didn't know where to turn or exactly what to do. The Marketing Beacon was the perfect solution to assist us in developing our company snapshot, strategic marketing message and public relations efforts. Their expertise was obvious from the beginning of our relationship. We look forward to growing our business with the Marketing Beacon at our right side.”

Mr. Kevin Jones, President

Mr. Patrick C. Fant, III, Founding Member, Fant & Gilbert Law Firm, P.A.



“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.”

Mr. Harrell Waldrop, Managing Partner & Principal

Gallagher Court Reporting

"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."

Ms. Mimi Gallagher, President
