Portfolio – Downtown Council of Kansas City

Before


After

The Blue Gurus partnered with Bill Dietrich, Mike Hurd and the rest of the crew of the Downtown Council of Kansas City to develop a new web site and to use social media for more effective communication. Over the past couple of months, we have seen the team at Downtown Council of Kansas City embrace our ideas and together we recently launched a new web site that we are all proud of. Take a look at the before and after pictures and let us know what you think. At the same time that I was working on the web site, Mic was working with everyone to connect to the people that they know and trust on LinkedIn and in less than 3 months, they have connected to hundreds of additional people.  We also helped them increase the number of people following them on Facebook to over 500. Blue Gurus continues to publish the weekly news and events for Downtown Council across their LinkedIn accounts, Facebook Fan page, Twitter and WordPress based web site.

New BlueGurus.com Look and Feel

Our web site looks different, right? Well, this is our interesting way of telling you that BlueGurus.com is currently being worked on! We like to change the entire look of our site at least yearly to show off the power of WordPress and professional themes. This is our fourth redesign in 18 months and the WordPress Themes just keep getting better.  We worked on the site Friday and Saturday, October 8th and 9th and updated our progress as we went.  Overall it took about 8 hours to completely redesign how our site looks and we added a bunch of new functionality including a home page slideshow, contact us form and more.

We worked with Gina and her team at the Kenton Brothers office at 1718 Baltimore Avenue in downtown Kansas City.  This is one of the things that differentiates Blue Gurus from other companies.  We do the majority of our work at the client’s location.  This creates a collaborative environment.  We can try different things in real time and make significant progress in a shorter amount of time when compared to the old way of doing things with change orders via email or describing what to change over the phone.
