My previous website wasn’t mobile friendly and had become out of date and too challenging for me to manage. I want to create something more current, professional and aligned to a growing audience finding me on Google. I’ve had some amazing feedback from clients, colleagues and friends and got an online enquiry in the first week. I also feel more confident directing people to the new site. I really enjoyed working with Karen and found her to be really professional and extremely adaptable and patient with me as the website started to come together and we played round with the visuals and some of the formatting. I have already recommended her services!
Karen, I’m so blessed to have you at my side as you helped me to artistically translate my vision to life. You worked tirelessly on this as you knew how important it was to get the look and feel right for me. And I’m under no illusions that you gave me a ‘little extra’ but it’s for this very reason I have worked with you for the past 6 years. I watch you evolve and for me this new website build is testament to your ability and skill . Thank you with all my heart.
I’ve worked with Karen for a number of years and can’t see a reason to date why I would need to change that. She is a little web genius and bombshell with the patience of a saint. She’s amazing at what she does, efficient and we get shed loads done in such tight deadlines. What I particularly love about working with Karen is that she’s niched right down to working with smaller businesses and she really ‘gets it’ . Because of that she offers an affordable, speedy and creative service and the beauty is its all wrapped into her bundle of ‘fizz’. A total pleasure to work alongside.
Working on my previous website was a REAL stretch for me as I only had an inkling of what I wanted it to look like. Karen helped me to bring a shape to that what in my mind kept changing. I’d like to say a huge ‘Thank You’ for NEVER making it difficult to ask for or express what I wanted and for her expertise, guidance, and incredible patience. Karens’ reaction to feedback is unique. She’s amazing to work with. Incredibly special. Everyone should have a Karen experience which makes building your website enjoyable and fun!
You really made the process easy – walking me at my pace through all the stages and being patient with me but most importantly the website felt like it belonged to me and that I was a key part of the birthing process.
Great working with Karen on my new website! She really understood the vision, quick turnaround and the communication was really good! Thank you.
I’m thrilled and indebted to 2 amazing women (for my new website and branding) – Lynne Stainthorpe, of Big Idea Brand Marketing, friend and branding guru and Karen Black, of HubFizz, web designer extraordinaire and new friend! Thank you ladies!
Karen is fantastic to work with. She’s got great communication skills, is very efficient, creative, AND proactive. If she can’t get hold of her client, she’ll sort out problems by herself the best way she can — which brings a project to the finishing line so much faster. She’s not only a great professional but also a really fun person privately — which makes working with her a pure pleasure. Thank you, Karen!Katarzyna Achtelik – Copywriter, Marketing & Branding Consultant
Love my social media coach Karen. Just had a great hour long session – she is worth every penny and pound! Each time I learn so much and feel encouraged as well as inspired. Hubfizz is the biz – she makes the internet and social media easy to understand and relate to. One of the many qualities I admire about Karen is that she genuinely wants me to become successful – sign of a big heart!
Can highly recommend @HubFizz for online marketing, social media marketing and web design that puts the FIZZ back into your company.
We have loved working with Karen to help us with our social media platforms and teach me how to use WordPress and learn my way around our website. She taught me how to write Blogs and use Mailchimp for monthly newsletters. Her work is great and she really brought it down to my level and not too technical. Now our go-to lady for anything marketing or social media related. Really feel that she is part of our team. Would recommend to anyone. Beth
I want to say thank you so much for all the work and commitment that you have given to both me and Tales of Thread. I am so impressed by your professionalism and constant good humour. Feedback from one of my PR contacts – “Congratulations!!! Such an amazing site – honestly, easily the best site I’ve used to buy something. Fruits or your labours are most impressive! “
After a big struggle getting my site online with a different company, working with Karen was a delight! I have known Karen for many years. She is very creative, thinks outside the box and deadlines always will be met. Just in one word ‘Fantastic’!
Only today a client complemented me on my company website, an idea that Karen Black made a reality. I wouldn’t even think of using anybody else for my design and online media requirements, why would you when you have found the best?
Karen Black, the marketing genius at Hub Fizz, has done wonders to make my business visible and memorable! She has the know-how and the creative flair to make your website look terrific and she’s also a tremendous marketing strategist. She’s not only created my websites and landing pages, but she works diligently to keep them up-to-date and visible on computers or mobile devices. She’s helped me with ideas to rank higher on Google search, be more appealing on social media and more effective in my email marketing. Every time I talk with Karen, I learn something valuable that moves my business forward. And in addition to being smart, creative and talented, to top it all off, Karen is one of the very best people in the entire world. She’s become a close friend in addition to being a trusted advisor. So I would highly recommend Karen to you if you want to massively increase your business, your sales and your revenue. Karen will make it happen for you, as she has for me. She ROCKS!!
In just under two hours Karen succeeded in teaching me what I needed to know from Mailchimp. The session was conducted via video-link where we could share computer screens, making it clear and easy to follow Karen’s tutorial. It was a great interactive way to learn as I could ask questions at any time, but as the session was also recorded for viewing again at a later time, I didn’t have to make any notes during the tutorial. Karen’s teaching style was clear, informative and easy to follow. I would highly recommend her for helping you start your own Mailchimp marketing campaign.
Things are now starting to grow thanks to your help last year, thank you. From 3 instructors we now have 11 instructors plus me and another 14 in the pipeline.
Karen was wonderful in her approach to social media training. Within just a couple of hours, I had managed to create and navigate around my Facebook page, and had an understanding of Twitter. My next step is LinkedIn! Karen was very clear in her teaching and incredibly patient. An invaluable couple of hours… I look forward to booking her again for more social media training. Thanks Karen- brilliant!
Karen’s LinkedIn workshop is eye-opener. Karen gives 100% and is very dedicated and helpful giving lots of advice and hints to help a novice like me! Thank you.
Karen’s LinkedIn Workshop was highly informative, practical and concise – exactly what I needed to give me confidence using this invaluable tool. Thank you Karen
I have known Karen, both in her previous role at AMG and at Mamba Media. Karen is both dedicated and knowledgeable in her work and it is her flair to build strong and respected relationships. Karen/Mamba Media utilise cutting edge online and social media to its maximum potential and I throughly enjoy following their informative and useful links, articles and social media campaigns on a regular basis. Karen is a well respected and popular individual amongst all that have had the pleasure to work with her.
Karen helped me with designing templates for newsletters as well as providing information on templates and design. A great help to a small company like mine. I recommend her for any work where design and web knowledge is needed!
Karen and I have worked together on various projects including; logo design, product labels, project pitches, print etc. She is an excellent designer, quick on the uptake with strong creative and design skills and importantly committed to completing jobs. What I like the most is that her project costings are sensible and realistic.
Karen is a very effective trainer and her deep understanding of social media marketing shows when she trains business owners and organisations. Her workshops are a wealth of information and you pick up new online marketing concepts too. As a small business owner, whether you’re just a beginner or already using social media, she will teach you how to use social media better for your business.
I signed up to Karen’s 5 week webinar course “Boost your business and work smarter online” which covered: website and branding; driving traffic to your sites; content marketing; using Facebook and twitter for business. A brilliant course, informative and interesting. I picked up some great ideas regarding branding and social media management. Highly recommend!
As expected another fantastic newsletter. If you haven’t signed up, you are missing out on social media marketing tips. Also attended a fantastic online seminar on growing your email lists.
I have known Karen since June 2012 and recently attended Mailchimp and LinkedIn Workshops run by Karen. She immediately put me at ease knowing I was new to Mailchimp and hadn’t been using LinkedIn effectively. The workshops were interactive and her objective was for the attendees to produce their own email campaign and LinkedIn profile and company page by the end of the sessions. Karen was excellent at ensuring all attendees kept up and understood each step before progressing to the next. I was very impressed with her knowledge and expertise and it was evident that she was very focused on teaching us practical marketing skills that we could reproduce and use regularly after the workshop. I have been on many courses that have not fulfilled their objective so this one was a welcome change. I thoroughly enjoyed the workshops and thanks to Karen I sent out my first email campaign to my customers with some very positive results. Effective trainers ask for feedback and this is exactly what Karen did at the end of the workshops. She was very keen to hear our comments and I was so impressed at how passionate she was about making the workshop as beneficial as possible. I would highly recommend anyone thinking of using Mailchimp and LinkedIn effectively, to attend one of Karen’s workshops as it will save you a lot of time best spent on your own expertise. Thank you for taking the fear out of email marketing and social media and teaching me skills I can now put into practice.
