About

Hannah/Gold Communications was founded in 1991 in Kalamazoo, Michigan, to meet the needs of a small, regional hospital for its writing/editing and communication activities. That first professional assignment was to write paragraphs of sympathy sentiment for the CEO to draw on for his letters to staff members who had lost a loved one! And it blossomed into a multi-year relationship across the healthcare system.

Since then Cheri Bales and Hannah/Gold Communications have helped small businesses, nonprofit organizations, and educational institutions meet their total marketing needs with a Five-Step Marketing Strategy that WORKS! Past clients include small business, nonprofits, educational institutions and others who need help with marketing from a marketing professional.
