“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

Alex Gutierrez, Director of Business Development


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.”

Reed Wilson, President


"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


"Outsourcing our marketing makes perfect sense because we do not have the expertise internally.  We know The Marketing Beacon will get any job done timely and professionally. 

This eliminates any worry we may have and gives us a reliable resource for all of our marketing needs.  They are our go-to team and we have full confidence in their marketing capabilities."


Laura Lipscomb, President

“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.”

Patrick C. Fant, III, Founding Member, Fant Law, P.A.

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."
