Meet the experts…
Karen Brunet is lead online marketing consultant and web designer and heads up the online marketing services division of Engineering Support Services, L.P.
She is devoted to empowering coaches, consultants, educators, trainers, and other service entrepreneurs, helping them mine more wealth and clients with their website.
Karen is no stranger to the computer field. Her career started in the late 1970’s programming the Apple I, Apple’s first PC computer. After attending university where she majored in computer science, she went on to work for several engineering companies in the “new” field of computerized bookkeeping and accounting.
Following the birth of her daughter, she worked several years as a Regional Manager and Financial Advisor for a US based financial services firm and held Series 7 and 63 licenses for Tennessee and Louisiana.
In 1995, she and her husband started an engineering services firm, and she accepted the position of Corporate Administrator and began homeschooling.
It was during this time that Karen was introduced to the emerging world of Internet marketing and website design. That was back in 2003 when most people were still using dial up modems.
Karen enrolled in an Internet marketing and webmaster course and was hooked. Before long she had started an entire new division called ESS to offer online marketing services and website design to a few select group of clients.
In 2005, she joined her first Internet business coaching program, Rhea’s Proteges. And in 2006, she won Outstanding Protégé at Entrepreneur Days 2006 in Nashville, TN.
That year, she also expanded the business by offering services in copywriting, shopping cart consultation and set up, affiliate program consultation and set up, and list building and management with autoresponders.
In 2007, Karen was awarded Protégé of the Year at Entrepreneur days 2007 in Atlanta, GA for her business development and growth after tripling business profits 2 years in a row.
That same year, responding to the need for web design training that incorporated Internet marketing strategies and cutting-edge Internet technology, Karen created a 5 week webinar course titled “Intermediate Web Design.” The class sold out and had students from all over the world.
She followed that with a special 3 month apprenticeship titled “Advanced Web Design and Apprenticeship Program” for a select group of students – all of whom went on to start their own online businesses.
The Mother Lode Website™ step-by-step online marketing system was created in 2008 in response to the growing need of coaches, consultants and other entrepreneurs who wanted a powerful but easy to use method to market their services online.
This proprietary online marketing system utilizes the latest Internet marketing techniques and cutting-edge technology.
Today, she works at home in the family business doing what she loves best – Internet marketing, online consultation, and web design.
She’s been featured as an expert for several programs, including Website Creation Class, Rhea’s Protégé Coaching Program, and the Extra-ordinary Results Coaching Program.
Karen is available to speak to your group on a variety of subjects including “How to Automate Your Lead Generation,” “How to Automate Your Sales Process,” “How to Create a Powerful Online Presence,” and How to Avoid Technical Overwhelm and Easily Make Decisions About Your Website.”
