Welcome! My name is Karen Clark and I am a social media and technology trainer for entrepreneurs and direct sales distributors.
Social Media Marketing Expertise: With 12 years as a direct sales leader, developing her skills and business both offline and online, Karenâs online presence expertise ranges from creating a comprehensive presence on the web, all facets of social media, smart and ethical Search Engine Optimization techniques, and the use of blogging for business. These, combined with her teaching background and professional communication skills, result in inspirational, educational, and useful content through MyBusinessPresence.com
Direct Sales/Network Marketing/MLM Distributor Training: Nothing replaces connecting with people in person or by phone, and as an experienced and active sales leader, Karen walked the walk as she sold, booked, recruited and supported a team offline, while expanding her reach and service online. Now, Karen enjoys teaching others exactly where, when, and how to spend their precious time to establish a presence, while remaining true to their principles and personal business.

Social Media Marketing Speaker for Direct Sales/Network Marketing & Entrepreneurs at My Business Presence
I speak to direct selling, network marketing and entrepreneur organizations, companies and teams about building an online presence through social media marketing. I also teach extensive social media marketing training via virtual training courses online, by teleclass and by webinar. I teach hands-on workshops called "Bring Your Own Laptop" Parties where distributors and independent business owners gather a group of friends in their home or office to participate in training. Based on 12 years building a successful direct sales business with a powerful online presence, my training style is unique in that I am fun, friendly and approachable but also break those high tech "geek" concepts down into easy-to-understand terms so that my audience is left feeling educated, inspired and empowered to grow their business using technology. For direct sales, network marketing and MLM companies who hire me to speak, I offer customized talks tailored to your group's needs, Internet and Social Media Marketing policies, and company lingo, and I deliver 110%, including a follow-up teleclass or webinar to support the audience as they implement their learning. Having come up from the field myself, your distributors will find me easy to relate to, in touch with their needs and business goals, and understanding of their desires to make a difference through their product or service. The most common comment I receive after a direct sales/network marketing presentation is, "She speaks our language and gets us!"
