Episode #34: How Communicating Your Values in your Authentic Voice Attracts The Right People with Karen Lamont
On today’s show, I am excited to dive into the topic of getting personal with your customers to attract the right people and generate more sales. We welcome special guest Karen Lamont, founder and chief designer of CITRUS - an e-commerce jeweller creating bespoke mementos that celebrate life’s bespoke moments.
Karen has crafted more than 30,000 designs in silver, rose and yellow gold coins and other precious materials so that the moments you’ve crafted are always close at hand. Karen lives and breathes a fully personalized experience. Her strong design sense, quality craftsmanship, creative marketing, in-person and online sales techniques have set Citrus apart as a Canadian brand for almost 14 years.
What sparks joy for Karen is meeting fellow entrepreneurs and sharing experiences that support one another and lift each other up. Starting an ecommerce business can be tough, let alone sustaining it for growth year over year.
