About Beacon Media + Marketing

About Us

It all starts with data, because data drives results! We are a data-driven agency because we know that in the business world, success is measured by the numbers. We pride ourselves in award-winning work that marries the best of data analytics with stunning creative to deliver the right message, at the right time, to the right demographic. Our power lies in the clicks, leads, engagement, and conversions we produce for our clients!

In 2012, Beacon Publishing & Design merged with Amazing Grace Media, and Beacon Media + Marketing was born! Co-Founders Adrienne Wilkerson and Jennifer Christensen each bring over 20 years of experience in the marketing industry and 8 years of experience in digital marketing to the table, serving clients from across Alaska and beyond. Since then, our company has grown and our portfolio has expanded to include clients from coast-to-coast. In 2018, Adrienne launched our second office in Reno, Nevada to serve the emerging market and the booming tech hub there, focusing on the health and wellness, education, and construction industries to name a few. Today, Beacon is regarded as one of the top digital marketing agencies in Alaska. We are nationally-ranked for our experience and creativity in a variety of marketing services, achieving social media results for our clients that are consistently above the national average!

Beacon received awards for Best Logo, Best Marketing Campaign, and Best Website in the latest statewide Prism and Pinnacle Awards for the Alaska Chapter of the American Marketing Association. Adrienne and Jennifer both have received numerous awards for their professionalism and outstanding thought leadership in digital marketing, including Woman of the Year (Adrienne), Marketer of the Year (Jennifer), Top 40 Under Forty (Adrienne), and Marketing Visionary of the Year, an award they took home together! In 2018, they co-authored a book, Digital Marketing Roadmap! Learn more about their stories as well as the rest of our dynamic team in the interactive photos below!
