Marketing expertise is second to none!
Karen is a forward thinker and a fabulous communicator. Her marketing expertise is second to none and she has always been on point with her skill set. She is a true innovator and often reaches back to those who are in need and pulls them forward. It’s been a pleasure to work with her over the years. If you want the job done correctly Karen is the woman for the job.
A joy to have "in the trenches"!
I worked with Karen to re-position DriveTime within a particularly challenging marketplace. Karen’s deep knowledge of her brand coupled with her creative director sensibilities proved invaluable. Karen has a wide breadth of experience ranging from print, to broadcast and web. She was as comfortable discussing consumer insights as she was reviewing sales figures. She was always accessible and a joy to have “in the trenches.”
Our company wouldn't be here without Karen!
It’s hard to imagine where our company would be without Karen. Not only is she extremely knowledgeable & talented when it comes to ALL things marketing, but Karen also understands how to adapt to any situation & make a positive impact for a business looking to grow. She helped craft our brand, create & maintain our website, advertise in print, create graphic designs, allocate our marketing budget, post on social media, follow & nurture leads, monitor our CRM…and so much more. I can’t speak highly enough of Karen and strongly recommend her to anyone looking to grow their brand, sales, and bottom line. She’s done all of those for our business & our company (Drive Casa) wouldn’t be here without here!
Would highly recommend Karen in any marketing capacity!
While at Arizona Summit Law School, I hired Karen as our Social Media guru (consultant). As the first dedicated individual to manage our social media channels, she updated and created social channels for the law school. She did a superb job because she understands audience nuances (i.e. prospects, students and alumni) and her vast brand/marketing experience. She was the only vendor to ask what I felt were basic brand questions (positioning, strategy, messaging) and took the information she researched to keep our channels updated with relevant news to each audience. I would highly recommend Karen in any marketing capacity but she was a life saver when I needed a strong social media guru.
New Hire Orientation Videos
Karen Loomis is a talented marketing professional. She was able to help create the DriveTime brand and carry it through multiple platforms and markets for a consistent effect throughout the company. During her tenure at DriveTime she was in charge of our New Hire Orientation video which was a relentless process. Karen was able to capture many key concepts on these videos to tell the DriveTime story.
I look forward to the day we can work together again
Working with karen is a pleasure, very professional and fun. She brings a “let’s do it,” attitude to any project, but also requires that the t’s be crossed and the i’s be dotted. I applaud her ability to make decisions and keep things moving forward. She does not fear ownership. (Something rare in many marketing departments.) Karen is a very good communicator and plays extremely well with others. I would most certainly work with Karen again in the future – as a matter of fact I look forward to that day
She gets it and if you work with her you will see what I mean in the first hour.
Karen is awesome. I worked directly with her on a very large project with thousands of moving parts that stretched all over the entire country. Her attitude was always “How can we make this happen?” as opposed to being overwhelmed. She was able to process details and keeps a smile on her face. When problems arose, as they always do, she greeted them with intelligence and optimism and it was very refreshing. She is great to work with. She gets it and if you work with her you will see what I mean in the first hour.
Deep knowledge of her customers!
I had the pleasure of working with Karen on the DriveTime Rewards customer loyalty program. She combines a deep knowledge of her customers to engage them in various and unique ways. I continue to use her techniques as the example of the RIGHT way to market a program and create true loyalty.
Can switch gears!
I rarely come across someone with a “creative on demand” ability and then can switch gears to discuss the analytics of a campaign like Karen.
