We're proud of our work and our mothers sing our praises.

But don't take it from us; hear what our marvelous clients have to say.

Karen is a consummate professional when it comes to digital marketing. She was hired to improve the SEO of our high-end jewelry website, and quickly came back with an audit and checklist of recommendations that delivered results. We wouldn't hesitate hiring Decibel again to amplify our marketing efforts.

Karen is a talented, creative, innovative designer and writer. The Foundation team depends on her again and again for competent, stellar work, meeting deadlines and always above and beyond what she is asked to do. We enjoy working with Karen. She understands and appreciates the collaborative nature of design work and is conscientious, driving towards the best product she can create. I delight in her work and am always excited to see her pieces. I am thrilled with the beautiful, elegant new Museum of Vision piece for major donor solicitation. WOW! Thank You!

I was looking for ways to make my coaching materials more user-friendly and interactive. Karen came through with some great ideas for copy, infographics, and videos. The materials look great and I've had very positive responses from my clients. I look forward to partnering with Decibel again.

Julie Cristello Jewelry is a one-person show with a focus on concept and creating. With the incredibly focused Decibel as my left arm, I know that my marketing and PR is handled expertly. Karen took the time to get to know my business and easily explains important strategies, making sure that all communications and collateral are genuine and in sync with my brand. It's been amazing to finally have the missing piece to propel my business forward!

I reached out to Karen for marketing services in the first of my 15 years of owning two live music venues. I did not have the time or knowledge to pursue marketing, as my energy was focused on operations. Karen built the websites for both locations, maintained the monthly live music calendars and sent the customer email newsletters, all of which needed constant updating with live events. She is very responsive, creative, with a great sense of design and fabulous writing skills. My husband and I had a successful business for many years, with many sold-out shows that would not have been as successful without the marketing that Karen provided.  I would not hesitate to hire Karen (Decibel) again.

Karen managed the PR department for Dr. Martens, specializing in our connection to the music industry. The position required someone who was well connected, organized and motivated to gain maximum exposure for our brand. Karen excelled in all areas. She secured highly visible PR exposure with our CD Sampler program and sponsorship of the Everclear tour nationwide, among many other responsibilities. A task of this kind often takes a team of people in the field — Karen managed the available resources excellently.
