For the last five years I have turned to Gery Deer / GLD Enterprises Communications to help me when computer problems arise. I tend to keep computers much longer than the average user and so Gery has been exposed to a wide variety of problems both software and hardware related. The one thing that always happens is that Gery is extremely knowledgeable, quick to work the problem and very fair and reasonable in the prices he charges.

The most recent example was several months ago when I bought a refurbished laptop from a well known manufacturer from a very large online vendor. When I tried to use the computer my malware program identified over 300 pieces of malware. It was unusable. Gery cleaned up the computer for a very reasonable price and in a very short period of time and the computer has been trouble free ever since.

“You nailed it! What a great feature story about our Haiti mission trip. It’s ready to go and no revisions needed.

It’s even going to be featured in the Catholic Telegraph newspaper! Thank you so much.”

“Gery has the ability to get the story out of his client through comfortable and lively conversation. His capacity to make you feel at ease through the interview process is as if you are not being “interviewed”, but engaged with Gery.

Gery did a wonderful piece for me on my mission trip to Haiti after the devastating earthquake and I received numerous accolades on the quality and content of the article. He was even able to condense the piece for a large newspaper without losing a bit of the impact. I highly recommend Gery for promotional articles.

“Gery is a fantastic business consultant that clearly understands the “ins and outs” of marketing and media management. His connections, knowledge and expertise in the industry have made him a valuable asset. His services have highly contributed to the initial success of my book. I would recommend Gery to anyone in need of professional marketing services and, specifically, a representative to promote their self-published works.”

 “Gery is very personable, articulate, and knows how to hit a deadline. He’s an entire PR firm wrapped up in one box and is able to perform all those essential tasks without losing a very grounded delivery that bridges clients at all levels. His greatest asset is being able to identify with a topic no matter what the subject and bring his vast background to personalize his material. His work is highly recommended.”

Gery Deer an amazing person to know, both professionally and personally. Our family had just purchased a building and was planning a joint open house celebration for our three businesses. I have done press releases before. I have been written up in national magazines, but as silly as it seems, my hometown was not showing me the ‘love’. I wanted to celebrate in my hometown and beyond. With time short, I hired Gery to write a release.

He sent me the article in advance and told me he would release it the next day. On the day of our grand opening, imagine my surprise when 3 newspapers and a television news team showed up. The coverage was incredible – it made our day so exciting. It’s now been 7 months since our opening, and just last week a woman called to book an appointment.

I asked how did you hear about us and she said she remembered reading in the newspaper. I plan to use Gery again in the future; as our company grows we don’t have the time or the talent to do the publicity ourselves. I know he get results. He’s well respected, has a network of contacts, is a talented, thoughtful writer and just a lot of fun to know.

“We are a small manufacturer of spa products that we sell all over the US and parts of Europe. As we came down to the wire with the launch of our newest product we were struggling with a ‘do it yourself’ approach to our press release. We didn’t have time to waste, so I contacted Gery and showed him the product, how we wanted it positioned in the media and also who our primary target we needed to reach was. The NEXT day he delivered. I didn’t need to change a thing. It was just what we needed. Within 24 hours of release three magazines had contacted us for high resolution images to use in their ‘Editor’s Picks’ – We advertise in some magazines, but an editor’s recommendation is a tremendous value to us. Customer’s trust them more than an ad and it can mean big sales, exposure and credibility. Gery taps into the core objectives and get results. I am thrilled to share this success with you and hope you will not hesitate to use his services. Great results and low stress for us – what more can we ask?”

Gery’s talent, positive energy and “can do” attitude are invaluable to me and my business. As always, his teamwork approach helped to create another successful outcome.

He was a real asset in providing sound input and quick responses during every development phase of our inaugural expo, and the comprehensive PR services he provided brought solid results from the local newspapers and new stations.

It is rare that a first-time event enjoys the success we experienced. Gery helped to make that happen! Thank you for always delivering exceptional products, service and support.

My name is Michael Savage and I am the publisher of the Times Community Newspapers in Dayton, Ohio. In February of 2008 we hired Gery Deer to be our special sections/products editor. Upon Gery’s employment we assigned him two priorities; to redesign and re-launch our automotive section formerly called Wheels later re-launched “MPG” and our real estate section formerly Home Source later re-launched as “Your Home”.

Both of these redesigned publications we intended to be more localized products and less “off the shelf canned news”.  The local real estate brokers/agents and automotive dealers really liked the fresh approach.  Unfortunately the timing of the re- launch of these two publications was right when the global economy collapsed.  As a result auto dealers and real estate brokers/agents ad budgets were reduced 90% and we could no longer afford to continue to publish these very nice products.  When we eliminated these two publications we also eliminated our special sections/products editor (Gery Deer).

The summer after Gery was laid off; we commissioned Gery to research and write a series about the transitioning Miami Valley economy from a manufacturing based economy to a high tech and medical services based economy.  We received very positive feedback from this series.

Gery is an extremely bright and talented writer and I would not hesitate to commission Gery again for similar types of rolls in the future.

Sincerely,


Michael P. Savage

Gery has developed several articles about me, my business, being a small business owner and the importance of indoor air quality.  He has also developed a marketing piece that I use for promotional purposes.

Gery has the rare gift of taking factual information and turning it into precise, interesting dialogue that captivates the attention of readers. He is extremely detail oriented when researching background for an article but then digests all his research to produce a story in an appealing manner that everyone can understand

He has helped me grow my business and I highly recommend Gery if you need professional writing.

I was very appreciative of Gery’s articles about my real estate business. Each was written with a telling story of genuine concerns of helping people and giving back to the community. Gery has a talented gift for writing and making a story come to life.
