Meet Sharon K.

Business owners and entrepreneurs make the best dinner table partners, especially when they can describe the joy they feel when they create value in their lives and the lives of others.

But when business owners can't get off the hamster wheel, when they're spinning wheels and getting nowhere, when they focus on the stress and frustration of ownership rather than the satisfaction they get from being their own boss, then it's time for more than riveting small talk. It's time for a heart-to-heart conversation about what to do next.

That's where Frequency Partners founder Sharon Kehnemui steps in. She loves dinner parties, but she doesn't rest on platitudes. Yes, she specializes in digital experience and web design, social media and email audience development, and search engine optimization and marketing. But none of that's possible if businesses owners don't know their audiences, or are unsure how to be their own best advocate. A strategy is needed. Sharon works with business owners to determine where they must concentrate their energy to increase the hum and reduce the churn.

Sharon loves to help business owners apply the latest digital and traditional marketing applications to ensure they make the most of their opportunities and can enjoy what their business provides them and their customers.

Sharon previously served as Managing Director of Digital Media at The American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research. Formerly, she spent 15 years in traditional and new media, 12 of them running political news coverage for, where she managed content and assets for Fox News' online audiences during and between four presidential election cycles.

Sharon has worked in public relations, most notably promoting tourism for the Republic of Turkey, the country where she long ago received her master's degree in international relations at Bilkent University. She has a bachelor's degree in journalism from Pennsylvania State University.

She is an eternal optimist despite a wicked wit, and her mother says she would have made a good lawyer or psychologist.

Another thing about Sharon: Her last name is difficult to pronounce (it's Azerbaijani, not Hawaiian), so she will answer to to make it easy for everyone.

Get talking about where you want to go and how you're going to get there.

By Sharon Kehnemui | March 24, 2017

This week, my husband and I stepped out to our local comedy club and saw one of the best performances, possibly THE best performance, of a one-man show that I’ve ever seen.

Advertising Online: The Difference Between Goals and Messages

By Sharon Kehnemui | October 25, 2016

Goals vs. message. I often find there’s an internal conflict clients need to overcome before advertising online to help them understand the difference between explaining their business and showing people the benefit of being a customer. This is especially true for clients who sell experiences over products, but knowing the distinction is helpful for all businesses. Ultimately in advertising online, showing the benefit…

A Successful Inbound Marketing Program: Relevant, Helpful, and Human

By Sharon Kehnemui | April 17, 2016

I recently attended a very cleverly marketed and presented sales pitch by HubSpot called #GrowWithHubSpot. The conversation was about how to launch a successful inbound marketing program, even though the goal of the event was to sell HubSpot’s very elaborate content marketing and metrics program. My two favorite parts about the event were the initial email in which…

Not my regular posts, but I always have fun watching Washington go nuts with snowstorms, whether just a doom-laden forecast or the real deal, which this storm (on my parents’ 51st anniversary weekend) turned out to be. I took the fun to the next level and got an op-ed published on So here’s my piece…

By Sharon Kehnemui | December 15, 2015

Improving your appearance on Google is one of the most important and rewarding tasks you can do for your business. But many business owners either don’t know how or are not interested in doing it themselves. And so they leave it on the to-do list, lonely and unfinished. Why is this? People often know the…
