Social Media for Direct Selling Speaker and Author | (707) 939-5709


Following are some comments and feedback I’ve received from people who have attended my training, or hired me to speak at their event, or consulted with me.

“Karen joined us at our Leadership Conference in January 2016.  What a delight.  She instantly engaged with the Leaders in the hotel lobby,  gladly joined us for our opening and then lead us as our first keynote speaker. Oh my, the Leaders were on the edge of their seats taking in every word.  She is oh so relatable and makes an intimidating and somewhat daunting subject easy.  She started with an overview and then gave quick, simple and easy to do’s.  You could feel a breeze of relief as the Leaders heard how easy it is to leverage social media with your person to person business. She gave a succinct edict that is unforgettable an spot on, Connect with people, not collect people.”
Kim Marquette, Brand Director, DaySpring, for Mary & Martha

“Karen is so easy to worth with and offers a very collaborative approach to social media consulting. She welcomed our ideas but offered many of her own which have significantly increased the number of shares and reach of our online marketing efforts.  With expertise in both social media and direct sales, Karen blends these two worlds beautifully with strategies that are both consumer and consultant focused.  Karen was quick to learn our business model, and was a true partner to our team managing our day to day presence online.”
Lynn Poynter , VP of Communications , L’BRI PURE n’ NATURAL

“Bedroom Kandi hired Karen Clark to do a series of training videos for our Consultants on social media marketing. It was important to us that our field of Consultants be trained in ethical social media marketing tactics that would positively reflect on our brand while helping our independent business owners grow their businesses. We appreciated Karen’s approach of emphasizing that social media marketing is about education and relationship building,  just as we promote in our person to person experiences. Our Consultants found Karen to be relatable, and her training informative. We were impressed with Karen’s professionalism, flexibility and generosity with her expertise! We look forward to working with Karen again in the future.”
Sheri Dever, Director Consultant Sales & Support, Bedroom Kandi Boutique Parties

“Our organization was blessed to have Karen as our trainer on social media.  Her knowledge on Facebook and Twitter is astounding; not only did we learn the ‘how to’ but she also shared with us proper etiquette, techniques to build your business using social media, and security measures that most of us were not aware of!   She trained in a way that made it easy and fun!  After her training, we saw an increase in the number of Consultants using social media, and an increase in our own corporate fan page.  I would highly recommend Karen as a speaker and trainer on the use of social media for your business, and I look forward to having her train our Consultants, and us, again in the future!”
