Who Are We?

“The difference between the right word, and the almost right word,

is the difference between lightning and a lightning bug.” – Mark Twain

Words and images can transform and convince.

At GLD Communications, we help you communicate a credible message that results in positive action by your audience.






Our mission: To be a successful partner to our clients by providing credible, strategic, results-oriented public relations media production services.


Thank you for considering GLD Enterprises Communications, Ltd., we appreciate your time! Let’s begin by helping you understand exactly what we do. 

If you’re unfamiliar with Public Relations Media, schedule a one-on-one with us!

We can help you understand the value of PR. In a digital world ruled by endless, often pointless, content, our PR strategy provides wide-reaching, authentic, credible material.

From copywriting and content strategy to video production and podcasting, we offer more than a quarter-century of experience in public relations media. Our goal is a long-term partnership with professionals who get “it.” What’s “it?” That’s easy. “It” is the understanding that you must create a positive image out there in a world so overgrown with noise that standing out is a challenge, even with the most useful, highest-quality product or service.

Our communications channels enhance your exposure and a MESSAGE FIRST strategy. “Your message matters,” isn’t just our tagline, it’s our professional philosophy. Without the right message, you’re just throwing good money after bad, regardless of how great the platform is or how well-targeted the audience. So, with that in mind, let’s move forward and talk about what we can do for you! Visit our website for more information and to view our portfolio.

Background: GLD Enterprises Communications, Ltd. was founded in March of 1998 under the name “Deer Computer Consulting, Ltd.” Founder and owner, Gery L. Deer, started the company primarily as a tech firm but expanded into marketing communications almost immediately. As a long-time freelance journalist and copywriter, he recognized early on the increasing demand for what we now call “branded content.” Gery’s firm began providing this kind of material almost 2 decades before it became fashionable. It expanded over the years into a full-service marketing communications firm.
