With 25+ years of experience in multi-media strategic planning, consulting, negotiating and buying, Rich Marketing has a unique insider's perspective from large agency best practices, direct client marketing strategies, and internal media inventory management.
In 2005, after successful careers working for others as agency, media executives and directors, researchers, and clients, it was time to take our skills directly to our own client base. Nothing in marketing is more rewarding than helping business owners grow their business. Through the years our business has grown organically by referral. Today we also work with a broader audience online to share our secrets about what works in an ever-changing social and digital media landscape.
Karen is the player that everyone wants on their team. A tireless competitor who can see the whole field, she’s passionate about helping clients succeed. An early adopter of social and digital media, Karen knows the tricks and tactics better than anyone.
As a leader in her community, Karen has consulted and served on many non-profit boards in the Seattle area. A member of the American Marketing Association and the Seattle Advertising Federation, Karen graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Communication and Marketing from the prestigious Edward R. Murrow College of Communication at Washington State University where she still advises today.
Karen gets her energy from all things artistic and clever. She’s Sandberg in the office, Martha in the home, Lindsey in the lodge (ask her about Washington’s only ladies’ ski race team), and Ada Lovelace on the robotics field. (Who is that? Again, just ask!)
M. COURT RICH
What’s the M stand for? M is for marketing! Court has spent his entire career in pursuit of marketing excellence. From the client side, agency, research, and media, Court brings a multi-tiered approach to finding what works. It helps that Court’s an ambidextrous contrarian. While Court’s left brain is crunching numbers, his right brain is making it branded and beautiful. His contrarian nature ensures your campaign will always be a step ahead of conventional wisdom.
Active in the Seattle advertising community, Court has served on the board of directors for the American Marketing Association and Seattle Advertising Federation. Court has an MBA from Seattle University with an emphasis in marketing.
For the record, Court shoots pool left, eats left, brushes left, writes right, swings right, plays tennis right, skis down and across, argues left and right.
Both Court and Karen gain valuable insights by observing their pre- and teenage sons’ engagements with social and digital media — and use those insights for social good in consulting on appropriate teenage media usage and its benefits. (Yep! We said benefits!)
Rich Marketing will always seek to add maximum value through creative thinking and experience. Rich Marketing expects its vendors to adhere to these same values.
