Website Design, Development, and Marketing That Shines Out

When it comes to creating a website that engages your audience and drives action, it can be hard to find your way forward. Fortunately, there’s something to guide you and help your site show brightly and stand out.

There’s a Beacon. (That’s us. We’re the beacon.)

Who We Are

We are a full-service digital marketing agency specializing in the Higher Education, Multi-Family Residential, and E-Commerce spaces. We combine unparalleled technical expertise and dedication with inspiring creativity and amazing design. Our expert team—marketers, developers, designers, project managers, and more—collaborate seamlessly to produce creative, custom, data-driven solutions that amplify your brand and connect with your audience.

In other words, we make cool websites that your audience will love, and then make sure that people find and visit that site. Sounds good, right?

What We Offer

Your site is more essential than ever. It will likely be the first stop for someone trying to learn about you and what you what you have to offer—and what do they say about first impressions? That’s why your site needs to be a fully optimized experience, capturing attention with brilliant design, telling an unforgettable brand story, and functioning fast and smoothly so that there are no moments of lag where your audience can even think of going somewhere else.

Creating a site like that—the kind of site your brand deserves—takes work: strategizing, managing the project, designing, developing, creating content, then studying the numbers and analytics to make sure it’s delivering a real and substantial ROI. That work is what we do. It’s where we thrive.

What Sets us Apart

There’s no feeling quite like coming together with like-minded and talented people to create something great. We view each project we take on as an opportunity for collaboration, partnership, and—we hope—fun. That approach has kept us in business for more than 20 years, hosting, crafting, and optimizing websites for hundreds of clients who keep coming back. Added to that, we’ve got a passionate and curious staff that keeps up with current trends in web design and marketing, so you can be assured you’re getting work that finds the perfect middle ground between rock-solid experience and eye-catching innovation.

Winning Strategy

It all starts with a vision: what your site can be and can accomplish. From there, our expert team gets to work: We research your market, your audience, your competitors, and what you do best. Then we share that data with you in a clear and easy-to-understand way. Finally, we put it all together to create an insightful and effective strategy for your site that will not only achieve your vision but exceed it.

Astounding Creative

A beautiful design. Words that inspire. Imagery and messaging that shows your audience exactly who you are and what you have to offer. These are the elements of your site that connect with your audience. We want that audience to truly engage with your brand and everything you have to offer, and our crack team of designers and writers are eager to bring your story to life and inspire your audience to take action.

Mind-Blowing Development

Your amazing content and ideas won’t matter if your audience can’t interact with your site. That’s where our developers, testers, and programmers come in: they can take the inspirations and content powering your vision and transform into a fully functional website that delivers a user-friendly experience. Even better, we utilize the intuitive Cascade or OU Campus content management systems to build your site, then give you the tools and training to manage that CMS so maintaining your site is a breeze.

Lasting Partnership

The best work isn’t created in a vacuum: throughout each project, our team will communicate with you every step of the way so you can see your site come to life and guide its development. Our supremely organized and detail-oriented project managers will work closely with you to deliver your site efficiently and effectively. Then, our digital marketing experts will utilize every tool of the trade—search engine optimization, pay-per-click ads, Google analytics, and more—to make sure your site gets the audience it deserves.

Who is on our team

These are the people of Beacon: passionate, unconventional, and wholly dedicated to delivering amazing work for you.

What Drives Us

At the end of the day, two things inspire us: creating work for and building relationships with clients like you and making a difference in our community and the world.

Giving back has been a central part of our mission since we began, and it continues to be a driving element of our vision for the future. Our efforts are local and global: we work with and donate to a variety of organizations here in the Piedmont Triad region including the United Way, and we’ve launched Weaving Hope—an initiative to fund new schools for Rwandan children with the sale of handcrafted basked from artisans. Created in partnership with our client partners at burton+BURTON, Weaving Hope funded construction of first school in Nkuzuzu, Rwanda in 2019, and we are only just getting started.
