• Our Team

    Marketing Works was launched in 2002 by noted New York communications professional, Ron Gold.

    With connections to over 1,000 U.S. publications, we have the resources to get the word out effectively to the mass media, as well as to industry and local community news sources. Our experienced staff of writers, designers, and PR pros works one-on-one with clients to fine tune and spread their message through attention-getting press releases, media interviews, mailings, videos, social media, websites, and more—designed to capture attention and generate recognition. We constantly bring fresh ideas to our clients on ways to promote, market, and deliver their message to their target audience.

    For over 30 years, Ron Gold has been a solid presence in the communications industry. He was General Manager at WALK 97.5 FM where he helped make it the number one radio station on Long Island — a status the station maintains to this day. He was also responsible for unveiling B103 FM, the top “oldies” radio station on Long Island.

    After 25 years in radio, Ron left to start an advertising agency with his wife called Advertising Works. He launched Marketing Works in 2002, offering a full spectrum of marketing and public relations capabilities, with an emphasis on good old-fashioned customer service and a focus on serving the nonprofit field. In 2014, we launched The Nonprofit Voice, a weekly radio show that discusses the issues affecting the special needs and behavioral communities of Long Island. The show is broadcast live on Saturday mornings on Long Island News Radio 103.9 FM.

    Ron believes in giving back to the community and has provided pro bono material for the Huntington Breast Cancer Action Coalition and the Long Island Advancement of Small Business, among others. He served on the Board of Directors of the Suffolk County Police Athletic League and was named “Man of Year” by the American Red Cross of Suffolk County.
