About Karsten Press

A Creative Studio

Welcome, how nice to see you here!

My name is Keri and I am the owner and designer here at Karsten Press.  I offer distinctive and creative direction, design and copywriting to organizations and small businesses looking to make a meaningful connection with their target audience.

Smart + Stylish Design

Your website, marketing communications, social media, images and content should all work together to tell your unique story. I’ll help design the look, feel and personality of your brand (engaging with your audience) and turn concepts and ideas into compelling creative copy (keeping your customers engaged!). We can work together to capture those elements that make your business unique and present it in the most honest way. I’ll plan, write, design and deliver a strategic marketing plan and create an exciting and engaging suite of communications that connect you with the people that matter most.

DESIGN

I use strong conceptualization and design skills to create effective and engaging brand identities, websites and marketing collateral that will connect with your target market and present your business in the most authentic way.

CREATIVE COPYWRITING

Copywriting is about the language you use to create a relationship with your customers, and they in turn use it to spread the word about you.  I use years of storytelling and marketing experience to craft business communication that does more than turn an SEO robot on. I aim to create a tone and voice that works for your business as well as makes your business voice distinct.

BRAND CLARITY

A clear, connected and cohesive brand will effortlessly work together (for you) and tell your unique story.  Through a discovery session, I can help discover what really makes your business unique and in turn, you can move forward with real clarity and confidence to win customers and do the work you want.

Resources

If you are looking to start a blog or website on your own, here is a list of products, tools + services I use that I hope will be helpful as you get started!

Domains + Hosting

Dreamhost is my go-to for domains and hosting.  A WordPress hosting plan includes easy setup, automated updates and backups, and 24/7 WordPress support (which I have used a ton!). And Dreamhost is very affordable!

Wordpress Themes

I have tried everything from page builders to fancy themes and I have had the most success (and least amount of hassle) using the Genesis Framework and Themes.  I own every single one of these themes and love the ease and functionality of them. For more feminine styled themes, check out Restored 316.

Style Customization

I’ve recently discovered Design Palette Pro which allows you to change the look of your site without writing a single line of code!  (NOTE:  This only works with Genesis Child Themes.)

Email Marketing Software

I started out using Mailchimp which is free up to 500 users.  I then switched to Emma which is incredibly robust.  Marketing automation can be hard to wrap your brain around but Emma makes it incredibly easy (and fun) to do!
