Carrie-Lynn Rodenberg, the owner of Turnkey Marketing, founded her boutique marketing firm after moving from New York where she was in charge of the direct response marketing for a 10 BILLION dollar company (Emblem Health). She went on to be the Director of Marketing and won the 2nd place Infusionsoft Ultimate Marketer Of The Year Award.
Carrie-Lynn graduated from the University of Virginia, which is considered a “Public Ivy League University” and is one of the top 25 universities in the United States.

Most weekends you can find her reading books on business and marketing, playing with her two dogs Paxton and Charlotte, or volunteering at church.

Turnkey Marketing was founded on the principle that all work done well is important. The work done in the aftermarket automotive industry is important – it keeps us and our cars safe, and lets us live with much more freedom.
Carrie-Lynn says “Turnkey Marketing exists to help shops effectively communicate in their community, with their customers, and potential customers, all the good work they do so that your repair shop can be known as the trusted, “go-to” shop in your area”. Turnkey Marketing does this by providing cutting-edge marketing that actually works and increases car count.
