“Don was recommended to me by a business colleague who has worked with him for many years. He has done a great job of helping our startup company generate awareness and gain new business through publicity and digital marketing. Don quickly connected us with strategic partners and worked well with our team to create an effective strategy and positioning for our brand. He is a diverse writer and gifted storyteller, and he has been involved in all aspects of our marketing, which included creating a marketing communications plan, a redesign of our company’s website, a compelling video, targeted email marketing, development of media materials and more. Don’s efforts to tell our story and differentiate our brand were instrumental in our company gaining national coverage in a short period of time, including a segment on ‘Fox & Friends,’ which drew a huge response and positively impacted our bottom line. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you want to hear more about the breakthrough results Don delivered for Authentically American.”  – Dean Wegner, Founder & CEO, Authentically American, Nashville, TN

“I’ve known and worked with Don for over a decade. He has worked in a number of the leading ad agencies as well as PR firms. He is one of the few professionals who is equally comfortable in either industry and more importantly can seamlessly integrate both practices.  It never fails, whenever I recommend someone to talk with Don about their marketing or public relations needs, they are impressed with his knowledge, communication skills and personal integrity. Whatever communication challenges your company faces, it is worth a conversation with Don.”  – Michael Gass, Business Development Consultant, Michael Gass Consulting, Birmingham, AL

“LifeWay Christian Resources, Inc. is the largest Christian resource organization of its kind in the country.  For 15 years, I served as Vice President of Corporate Affairs for the company with the communications responsibility of the corporation under me.  There were many times both corporately and in our divisions that we needed the services of Don Beehler to help us with major projects.  In every case, Don met or exceeded our expectations for the results we expected.  Following my retirement, I stayed on with LifeWay as a consultant to continue raising funds for global ministries.  Don’s experience in a wide range of communications (publicity, donor communications, copywriting for brochures, updating content of our website, coordinating promotional videos, etc.) enhanced considerably what we would have had otherwise.  With his help and support we were successful in raising millions of dollars for strategic ministries on a global front.  I commend him to anyone interested in quality work and yes, I will contact him again anytime I need a job done in the communications field.”  – T. Michael Arrington, President, The Operation Andrew Group, Nashville, TN
